SEIU Thugs Charged in Town Hall Incident

Editor's note: Recall the story several months ago, (seems an eternity now), where Kenneth Gladney, the conservative black man was beaten and thrown to the ground by SEIU members at the Russ Carnahan town hall? Well perhaps there is justice in the world.

FINALLY! It only took nearly 4 months.

Of course the paper calls it a disturbance and not once does it mention SEIU by name. Also, ordinance violations in St Louis are lesser charges than a misdemeanor so apparently if union goons beat someone there it's not really a big deal.

St Louis Post-Dispatch :

ST. LOUIS COUNTY • Six people arrested in August outside a raucous town hall
meeting in south St. Louis County have been charged with misdemeanor ordinance

The six, including a Post-Dispatch reporter, had attended a demonstration outside an Aug. 6 forum called by U.S. Rep. Russ Carnahan, D-St. Louis, at Bernard Middle School in Mehlville to discuss health care reform.

The charges were filed Tuesday by the St. Louis County counselor’s office, which prosecutes misdemeanor ordinance violations in unincorporated areas. All are to appear in court Jan. 21.

The maximum penalty upon conviction would be one year in jail and a $1,000 fine.

Gladney, 39, of St. Louis, who police said had been assaulted, said a call from a reporter Wednesday was the first he had heard of the charges. "I’m shocked it took this long," he said.

He said he believes the crime against him should be prosecuted as a felony. "I’m mad as I-don’t-know-what about this," Gladney said. "It seems like average people can’t get justice."
