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.

I'm just certain that US Attorney General Eric H. Holder, Jr. will now launch a federal investigation to ascertain if this victim's civil rights were violated and pursue all legal means to get justice.

Oh, wait, that won't likely happen. We live under Obama's legal system... never mind, move along, nothing to see here.

Also, anyone even slightly to the right is guilty of violence even if he does nothing, and the violence that he’s guilty of without ever committing is heinous and unforgivable. Because of it, he deserves a smack-down.

... if we are to maintain freedom and resume governing by the Constitution.

That old Constitution is so outdated, it just isn't relevant anymore.
Besides it was written by old white men who didn't care about minorities, and women, etc. It's time we just moved on to a new set of rules promulgated by Democrats who run the Justice Department and control and direct most courts in this country and let them decide what is right and wrong and who has been harmed by bigots, and who goes to jail... //sarcasm (but you know, this is almost what is happening these days)

McCullogh...the, Prosecuting Attorney for St. Louis County, is a HARD core, union funded democrat. As a matter of fact, he was one of the founders of the “Truth Squads” to defend O-BLAME-a against any opposition. A real POS.

My elderly Int'l neighbor experienced a full-blown progressive (Obama-style) Government in his youth; and explains that Gov Groups always win these types of cases, but eventually the Brutes’ bosses threaten them with suspension.... Inevitably worse, as this is why ordinary citizens eventually end up missing... Thugs protect their jobs.

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.

Ditto. I met him at a Tea Party event near Pittsburgh. I bought a Gadsden flag from him which he signed for me.

Vengeance is the Lord's, I guess. But sometimes I wonder where He is looking.

I would just like the names and faces of the perps to be out there for future reference. For instance, when/if there is violence in Missouri on election night 2012 there should be a way to cross reference these perps to prior actions.

It worked the same way in the old South. Intimidation of juries, protestors, their families and employers by the KKK. Only now the KKK is the SEIU. I really see no difference at this point.

What you would like to happen would require a GOP with a will to fight for what is right & just as opposed to what we have a political party that is in love with the perks prestige & social status of getting elected to office.

Well, the film doesn’t show much of a beating, though the big union goon did pull Gladney to the ground pretty violently. You can hear Gladney ask why they hit him in the head, so apparently they hit him, but it isn’t visible in the video. What’s interesting is that one of them admits to attacking him. The tea party guy over on the left says “You two guys attacked him!”, to which the big goon replies, “No we didn’t......he attacked America, so we attacked him.” Interesting how the ends justify the means mentality permeates from top to bottom on the left.

Hello, this was already violent conflict and the DNC brownshirts have been acting this way for the past several presidential cycles. look at the keywords electionviolence and dncbrownshirts. every incident is treated as a local story only even though there is a national trend and were Rat terrorist activities at the 2008 GOP convention in addition to the Code Pinko interrupting McCain’s acceptance speech.

A black man being beaten up by a gang of white thugs, who are acquitted by a local jury?

Sounds like a textbook case to be brought as a federal civil rights case, doesn’t it?

One would think that Eric Holder’s infamous “my people” statements and his department’s more or less acknowledged policy of pursuing civil rights violations only when minorities are the victims WOULD ONLY WORK IN FAVOR OF A FEDERAL CIVIL RIGHTS CASE AGAINST THE SEIU THUGS.

But no. Apparently for Eric Holder, there’s “my people” and there’s MY PEOPLE.

For sure something happened and the union guys should have been held accountable. I think the wheelchair and neck brace were a bit much and although not right, it may have had an impact on the decision in court.

I have a military background and exceptional relevant skills. If I was beaten by a mob and they were found not guilty despite a video, I would react adversely - and permanently solve the problem that the courts chose to ignore.

Btt.

It is very obvious that trial by jury no longer works in this country - if it ever did. People in this country have devolved to the point where a jury trial is no longer effective. Also add that to the fact that the side with the most disposable income wins.

If this verdict doesn’t motivate people for 2012 - nothing will. This “verdict of justice” can and should be used to greater advantage.....

I think that is a long-distance connection.

The collective idiocy, as shown in the 2008 election, can’t be undone in a few moments of clarity (as we saw last November).

Even had the electorate voted for McCain (I know, the barely lesser of 2 evils), I think these juries would have come in the same way.

This is culture and education more than politics.
