Gladney was beaten by several SEIU thugs after the meeting let out. He was working outside the town hall event selling flags and buttons when he was attacked.
Although he was too weak to speak after his public beating, Kenneth Gladney attended the protest against SEIU violence following his beatdown in St. Louis.

St. Louis County officials waited until November 25 to press charges. SEIU members Elston McCowan, 47, of St. Louis, and Perry Molens, 50, of De Soto, each were charged with assaulting a person and interfering with police. They are accused of scuffling with and injuring Kenneth Gladney, a vendor at the Carnahan health care town hall. The country pressed charges on 6 individuals.
Today, Kenneth called to tell me that they set a date for his court case.
The prosecuting attorney Victor Melenbrink notified him that his court time is
7 AM CST- April 23rd 7 PM CST on April 20th. Paul J. D’Agrosa will be representing the SEIU defendents in the case. Elston McGowan is still receiving workman’s comp(?) after being injured during his attack on Gladney. He is about twice the size of Gladney.
UPDATE: Kenneth Gladney called and the court date was changed to April 20th at 7 PM CST.
