Adam has been arrested and is in jail in Philly... I can personally testify that he hadn't even smoked yet... everyone please phone bomb the philly police and jail phone lines and demand adam be released amd able to make contact with us... other protesters were actually smoking and released after arrest but adam was taken away in a white chevy suburban... phone bomb them now!!! --- Brother Lucas

From Facebook: Joe Pauli A nice gentleman answered the phone and asked me if this was about that "Adam Coken fellow" to which I replied yes, and he gave me "The Roundhouse" phone number to call. 215-686-1234

Who did the caller dial?
What was said before hand, if anything?
Where did he get put through to?
Why did adam get arrested?
edit: why did ANYONE get arrested

that call to the police

that call to the police station was ridiculous. That audio needs to be taken up the chain of command.

So fake the phone call...

So fake the phone call...

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

I'm afraid it's NOT FAKE - read some of the comments on

Adam's Facebook page and on youtube. Can't tell if he was actually released or they moved him to a Federal Detention Center. Anyone know?

HIS PTSD IS RUNNING WILD THESE DAYS

No offense, the guy should either off himself or consider moving to a different country.

Worst comment I've seen on

Worst comment I've seen on the DP in weeks. You make Fireant look like a brain surgeon.

FU COWARD!

Moving to another country is exactly what he should do, so you can be left to your own devices! This man, something you are NOT, is doing what most men should be doing! When is the appropriate time to resist, when you are going in the cattle car?

If you think attention

If you think attention whoring is manly you must be as crazy as Kokesh.

If you think PTSD

is a reason to commit suicide or leave the country, then you probably have a few screws loose yourself.

Calling him an attention whore is one thing, but that other comment was a really stupid thing to say.

A signature used to be here!

No he shouldn't commit

No he shouldn't commit suicide however he refuses to treat his condition peacefully and instead of just acting like a clown in public. I watch his videos and the guy is inconsistent with his views.

Fair enough

Personally, I like him, though his approach does leave me occasionally scratching my head.

I thought his last few interviews have gone well, though.

Like I said already, FU

Like I said already, FU COWARD!

Why

Did they arrest him?

no victim, no crime

no victim, no crime

This just in...

Adam Kokesh of AdamVsTheMan has been taken captive NOT by the Philly Police but by Federal PARK POLICE. I just spoke with a woman in the Park Police (215-597-7077) who spoke with her supervisor for me.
Her supervisor said that the Park Police have taken him to 401 NORTH 21st Street which is the 9th District. They do NOT have Positive ID on him right now and if they can't get positive ID within the next 30-45 minutes they will be taking him to a near by FEDERAL DETENTION Center.
I was told that if people go to that location they MIGHT be able to help get him out (possibly by ID'ing him.. IDK)

So the 9th District's # is: 215-686-3090
If you are on the ground up there you need to SURROUND that building IMMEDIATELY.
MELT the phone lines.

They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.

Sick if this shit! If you're

Sick if this shit! If you're not going to prevent the thugs physically from violating your rights when you out number them 20-1 then go home and stop bitching. Chanting free Adam and doing nothing will accomplish nothing as it has since the 60's! Bullies don't quit bullying until you beat their ass and humiliate them!

The police will keep him in jail until....

July 5th.

“The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.” --Albert Camus

first thing that came to mind

pre-emptive bust?

I speak as one who has not only sought help from Adam but war counsel. I happen to be a peace chief but I recognize there is a time and a place for everything including a place for our warriors to make a display. But I see that Adam has left himself certain outs for this one. Less than 1000 dedicated to march armed and up ammo'd BUT with rifles back-slung is not war. It's a parade.

Adam having thought through this thing and envisioning things ending with orderly arrest is within my tolerance of expression. But note that neither myself nor CHOWHOUND will be there to materially support this action because we are pretty much UNARMED SECURITY and we have a long history of working with Capitol Hill PD, NPS and even DC Metro PD although they don't quite get top scores like federal badges do.

Guys we have a pretty long standing good relationship with federal badges. Let's just say our working relationship as activists, the positives way out weight the negatives. I wouldn't compromise their professionalism for a second to say they are "on our side" but as far as working together to secure Dr. Paul and all, well, we make a good impression, we have made an impression with certain people, even in DHS. Even everyplace.

I might pick up a box of AK ammo on Monday just for an investment. I don't even have an AK.

I do know that in coming days the things i think about and dicuss will either get me killed or landed in prison for the rest of my tiny life like my brother Leonard Peltier. Who rots in prison for the hate and the shame of lies of men who exhaulted. And I know I will die in their prisons because i'm already in one.

Aho.

There is nothing strange about having a bar of soap in your right pocket, it's just what's happening.

Well now that he has been arrested

for possession of "narcotics," soon they will send the authorities to go take his guns, no doubt.

would be really awesome if I

would be really awesome if I could actually understand what was being said.

I wonder how many

rapes/murders/violent crimes occurred while they were debriefing/watching/arresting him and others. Seems like a pretty poor use of police resources.

No victim, no crime!

No victim, no crime!

They want Adam soooo badly...

They want Adam soooo badly... And I think the outcome would be different if they were all armed..

I like the part at 1:00

Where the guard tries to manhandle the anti-man and fails.

that was sweet. That guy

that was sweet. That guy better go back for some additional training.
