Kenneth Gladney is a fraud, being pimped by tea baggers

Members of the "tea bagger" (aka POLITICAL TERRORIST) movement held a press conference in St. Louis today to "decry" the alleged attack by "union thugs" on "Black conservative" Kenneth Gladney (we mention "Black conservative" because the "tea baggers" felt the Gladney's race was relevant, however these same conservatives are quick to call someone out for playing the "race card").

During today's press conference Kenneth Gladney was in a wheel chair and unable to speak because he was on pain killers. But for some reason he was not in a wheel chair and was able to speak when he made numerous appearances on FOX NEWS ("Your Money w/Neil Cavuto" "The O"Reilly Factor") on 8.7.09.

He claims he was punched in the face numerous times and kicked in the head, however his face looks fine. Additionally, when you watch video of the "incident" he is walking around after the alleged assault without any noticeable limp. This guy is nothing but a pure fraud, being used by the tea baggers. Why was this fool able to speak on FOX NEWS but unable to speak from his wheel chair today? Also, he had a frickin' ace bandage on his knee, you would think if this was a serious knee injury that would cause him to be in a wheel chair he would either be in a cast or a brace.

I didn't think so. assholes.

on edit: I know this was not the main point of the story, but it jumped out at me and pissed me off.
Gladney is apparently a stooge.

9. Unable to speak because of pain killers?
I've never heard of that. Do they mean he was unconscious, or what?

11. 'Nuff Said!
"During today's press conference Kenneth Gladney was in a wheel chair and unable to speak because he was on pain killers."

Really now. How can anyone take Gladney and his act seriously?!

12. Has anyone dug out Gladney's full background yet?
Edited on Sun Aug-09-09 12:18 AM by starroute
Using Google's timeline option provides links to a few older stories -- but the links themselves appear to be pay-only. However, the snippets Google provides are intriguing.

One snippet, apparently from four years ago, is headlined "FROM THE POLICE ACADEMY TO A LESS-THAN-PERFECT WORLD" and reads "So when Kenneth Gladney, a 34-year-old recruit who had served in the US Army, finished his final qualification run three seconds behind the qualifying time of 12 minutes, 38 seconds, it appeared as if another cadet was washing out for failure to run fast enough."

Another reads, "Mar 17, 2006 - LOUIS METROPOLITAN POLICE DEPARTMENT, PO KENNETH GLADNEY, PO CLAUDE CROCKER AND METRO DUTY SERGEANT, DEFENDANTS. ... The remaining claim of plaintiff's complaint is that defendant St. Louis police officer Kenneth Gladney violated plaintiff's constitutional rights when on February 28, ... "

So it seems like Gladney got into the police despite not being able to run fast enough. But does anyone know what this claim of violating somebody constitutional rights was about?


On edit: I found the court case. It looks like the plaintiff lost because his claims of chronic neck pain, headaches, and difficulty sleeping after Gladney hit him were felt by the jury not to be credible. But nobody seems to be denying the Gladney did hit the guy hard enough to knock him out of his chair. Odd that Gladney is now putting himself in the same situation.

TERRY LYNN KIMBALL, PLAINTIFF,
v.
ST. LOUIS METROPOLITAN POLICE DEPARTMENT, P.O. KENNETH GLADNEY, P.O. CLAUDE CROCKER AND METRO DUTY SERGEANT, DEFENDANTS.

Remaining for trial in this action is plaintiff Terry Lynn Kimball's claim pursuant to 42 U.S.C. 1983 against Police Officer Kenneth Gladney, alleging that on February 28, 2002, in a booking area within the police department's Central Patrol Division, Officer Gladney struck plaintiff, knocking him out of his chair. . . .

Plaintiff has filed a motion in limine to exclude evidence of his prior misdemeanor convictions , deriving from two incidents in which plaintiff was convicted of misdemeanor assault or battery on police officers, one occurring before and one occurring after the incident at issue in this case. . . .

Plaintiff alleges, as set forth in his trial brief, that as a result of defendant Gladney's use of force, plaintiff continues four years later to suffer from chronic headaches, neck pain, limited neck mobility, difficulty sleeping and concentrating, and sensitivity to loud noises and bright lights. Plaintiff testified similarly in his deposition. Defendant argues that the evidence of plaintiff's employment shows that he worked full-time jobs involving stressful manual labor, that he regularly worked overtime, that his alleged symptoms did not cause plaintiff to miss work or interfere with his job duties, and that defendant quit his job at P.D. George because he was not getting as much overtime as he wanted.


http://mo.findacase.com/research/wfrmDocViewer.aspx/xq/...

Attorney Michael Wetmore was appointed on July 5, 2005 to represent plaintiff Terry Lynn Kimball in this action under 42 U.S.C. 1983 alleging an unconstitutional use of force by defendant Gladney, a St. Louis police officer. After the remaining claim was tried to a jury and judgment entered against plaintiff in November 2006, appointed counsel has timely submitted a request for reimbursement of expenses incurred in the representation.

23. Excellent find. The Gladney guy in the
wheel-chair claims he has no healthcare insurance? Is he still a cop then, and if not why not?

You should turn this into an OP, assuming it IS the same guy of course.

15. My daughter had oral surgery on Friday, she was on pain killers afterward, she could talk. She
was a little mush mouth from the numbing of her jaw but she could talk. He couldn't talk because he had a knee injury? What does he do, talk out his ass? :shrug:

27. Just heard on local St Louis news - he has no health insurance
and has just set up a website to collect donations for his medical care.

Irony?

Another dummy being used by people who don't like him, the right-wing's cycle of idiocy never ends.
