As Twitchy has reported, demonstrators in south St. Louis have spent the night so far blocking traffic, banging on cars trying to get through, shattering an apartment window, trying to steal a reporter’s iPhone, and burning several American flags. Are these the “real gladiators” writer and MSNBC/CNN contributor had in mind when she urged her followers to remember them?

We’ve identified the trolls and cowards here, but we’re still not sure who the gladiator is. Probably the guy who put the reporter and mother of two in a headlock to steal her iPhone? That sounds pretty badass.
