On August 6th Kenneth Gladney attended the Russ Carnahan town hall meeting in south St. Louis County. Kenneth was there to make some money selling freedom flags and buttons. After the meeting Kenneth was assaulted, beaten and stomped by angry SEIU thugs who were upset that a black man would be selling anti-Obama merchandise. Gladney was taken to the hospital following the attack.
Ken Gladney is pictured here after his public beating by SEIU thugs. Kenneth Gladney attended this protest against SEIU violence in August in St. Louis. He was beaten, kicked and called racist names by Russ Carnahan’s SEIU supporters after the town hall meeting earlier that week. St. Louis County officials have yet to press charges.
It’s been over 3 months and still St. Louis county officials have not met with Kenneth Gladney to discuss the case nor have they press charges against the SEIU thugs who beat him.

Today after Kenneth set up an appointment with the county officials on Monday to discuss the crime– they blew him off. Kenneth made an appointment with Joyce Kelley to discuss the case. She is not the lawyer assigned to the case. She was supposed to call today, Tuesday. Kenneth waited around, and then called in three times and got no response. They blew him off.
Later today Kenneth Gladney talked about how the county is ignoring the crime against him:
Kenneth Gladney was beaten once in the street in a hate crime.
But, it doesn’t matter to county officials.
They have better things to do than protect a black man who was assaulted by SEIU thugs.
