GLADNEY TRIAL: NOT GUILTY! SEIU Thugs Cleared In Gladney Beating
Gateway Pundit ^ | Tuesday, July 12, 2011, 3:40 PM | Jim Hoft

Posted on 07/12/2011 2:18:55 PM PDT by Da Bilge Troll

Kenneth Gladney reaction: “I couldn’t beat them; I didn’t have the resources they had. They had all the money in the world and the backing. I’m just an average man.”

Video pending.

The Kenneth Gladney beatdown case continued this morning in St. Louis County Court. After a health care town hall meeting in August 2009 St. Louis native Kenneth Gladney was beaten, kicked and called racist names by Rep. Russ Carnahan’s SEIU supporters. Gladney spent the night in the hospital after the beating.

Wasn’t this attack on video?

Not that it matters when half the jury is on the other side already

When the left continues to deny justice and act outside the law,

they are making a violent conflict inevitable.

We met and had a long conversation with Kenneth at a TEA Party in Albany, NY.

He’s a very nice fellow and he deserves better than this.

This case thus establishes the precedent:
Physical violence is a valid form of political expression.
Note that this precedent only applies to far left Democrats and Marxists.

2012 will be an extremely violent year. I hope I am wrong, but it looks inevitable.

Can’t the Judge overturn the Jury if there is compelling evidence such as video?

Does anyone have the actual Jury findings? Was the video shown in court to the Jury? Where the attackers identifiable in the video (I think they admitted to administering the beating anyway)?

If they did admit to beating the plaintiff, what can the mitigating circumstances possibly be in this case?

Amy legal types here?

Although I absolutely think “they did it,” here is why I think the jury found reasonable doubt:

Basically, he (seems to me to have) “milked it.” He took some punches, and that’s a crime, BUT he didn’t appear to take such a beating as to need a WHEELCHAIR. (I could be wrong, but that was my sense at the time: Jeeze, dude, what was done to you was wrong 1000 times, but your LEGS weren’t injured??)

JMO, YMMV.

Not an acquittal in a criminal case.

In a civil case, yes. In a criminal case, a jury's verdict of not guilty cannot be overturned by the judge or appealed by the prosecution.

I wonder what jury duty pays in St. Louis, and how much less you get for the wrong verdict.

Sure there was video, but it was only 480i. What kind of barbaric country convicts on anything less than 720p video.

The system worked.

I’m basing that on the linked article. If you mean that you suspect union-goon foul play, I do too. I just suspect it’s both.

Cute. Nope, but I read the linked article about how the defense highlighted Gladney’s post-incident conduct. (I’m not sure I agree with the judge’s decision that the conduct was relevant, however, at least in a criminal case where degree-of-injury isn’t generally an issue. Either they hit the guy without legal justification, or they didn’t, and to any person with eyes, they did.)

Nope. He’s actually seen roving around speaking to cops in the original footage. (I’m not saying he wasn’t hurt in his back or legs, just ... it didn’t appear to me to be wheelchair-worthy.)

Anyway, I’m gonna resist taking the bait on any further responses ... like I said from the get go, MY vote would have been “guilty (but he did milk it a li’l afterwards), not “not guilty,” but I sorta understand why a cynical and/or union-goon-infested jury would disagree with me and find reasonable doubt.

Like I said, JMO, YMMV.

Seems that some jurys are not bothering to look at the facts lately.

Does not surprise me for one minute.

The legal system has become corrupt.

Anyone who fails to see this is an idiot.

Violent conflict is rapidly becoming inevitable.

Certain groups within our country have been found to be unaccountable and above the law. The only way to rein them in is to use extra-legal means. Failure to do that will necessarily result in a collapse of this nation.

Either everybody is subject to all the laws or there will soon come a time when no one will be. Anarchy is not the answer, but it may well end up being the result.
