SEIU Thugs Finally Charged In Gladney Beating

Finally. After months of careful consideration the St Louis county prosecutors office has seen fit to file charges against 6 people for the beating of Kenneth Gladney at the Tea Party rally outside of Rep Carnahan's town hall meeting back in August.

Of course Jim Hoft over at Gateway Pundit is all over it, and the prosecutors office admit that they were motivated in part by bloggers and videos appearing on the internet.

This particular news account leaves out any mention of the SEIU connection and in fact leaves you with the impression that it was the people protesting against Rep Carnahan support of the PelosiCare healthcare bill that were the ones charged.

Unbiased journalism or willful omission I will leave up to the reader.

They even managed to press charges against a reporter who was on the scene, you know doing his job.
Post-Dispatch reporter Jake Wagman, 30, of University City, was charged with interfering with a police officer. The charges allege that he failed to obey repeated commands "to leave the site of an ongoing disturbance."

Hmmm, isn't the job of reporters to, you know, like, report on things like this? I wonder how often they ask reporters to leave the site of other protests? Of course this is the same Missouri which earlier in the year drafted the memo about folks who oppose Obama should be given particular attention by public safety personnel, since they pose a threat and the same Missouri who wanted to set up truth squads to fight the rumors that might smear The One.

I, like a lot of other people, are still left to wonder what took so long to prefer charges in what appears to be a pretty obvious case of assault, with police officers on the scene. Meanwhile the folks of the "Show Me" state might want to start taking a look at who is running their state and get some folks in there that have at least a passing familiarity with our Bill of Rights.
