Adam Kokesh Arrested, I think Video shows Cops planting something on himSubmitted by Schvenzlerman on Sun, 05/19/2013 - 05:39
Adam Kokesh, liberarian icon and host of the Adam vs. The Man podcast that was formerly carried by Russia Today, was arrested by National Park Service law enforcement officers in Philadelphia on Saturday. Kokesh was arrested while delivering a speech in the Independence National Historical Park’s Free Speech Zone for a monthly “smoke-out” gathering in which participants advocate for marijuana legalization. Videos taken by participants show that Kokesh did not smoke marijuana and did not resist arrest. Kokesh was reportedly taken to the Philadelphia Police Department’s ninth precinct, but later transferred to a federal prison where he is awaiting a Monday arraignment on presently unspecified charges. Kokesh achieved recent notoriety for organizing an event to take place on July 4th, 2013 in which pro-Second Amendment supporters were to engage in civil disobedience by peacefully marching in Washington, D.C. with rifles.
The event’s attendees totaled approximately fifty persons while federal and local LEO’s were at least sixty. Kokesh's transfer to a federal cage should suggest that charges will be brought against him for assaulting an LEO. That would carry a potential sentence of eight years in prison and/or a $100,000 fine. Kokesh was clearly targeted for arrest prior to the event and he is a political prisoner.
In this second video, a federal officer can be seen planting something on Kokesh --
