The let MURDERERS out on bail.

Unless they want REAL "felony assault" (or worse) on federal officers, they better rethink their position.
'Ambush' killings of lawmen part of increase in slain police'
http://www.cnn.com/2013/04/06/us/law-officers-ambush-killings

This is all planned/provoked

Cops killed wantonly at traffic stops and by 'crazy' people is being staged at a high level by the powers that be by ratcheting up enforcement and sentences and making basically everything illegal.

This didn't happen back when authorities followed the rule of law and penalties befitted the crime. When any interaction with a cop is liable to destroy a person's life, people who already are edgy and afraid simply snap.

Take back the GOP and Restore America Now.

Criminalizing Disobedience: Adam Kokesh, Anti-War Activist, is Arre...

WHO ORDERED the Park Rangers to monitor AK?

First, it is 100% clear that it was the PARK RANGERS that were the "aggressors". That is VERY CLEAR via the video. The Judge should throw this case out of court, based on that alone. You cannot hold anyone for suspicions of something. The police have no business badgering Adam Kokesh on whether he has lawfully owned guns or not. They will find out on July 4th. He is not a menace, and they know it. He is not imbalanced, and regardless, that has NOTHING to do with what he has done during this expression of Free Speech at the rally.

Second, WHO ORDERED THESE PARK RANGERS to monitor Adam Kokesh?

I want answers now!! Also, WHO are his friggin' attorneys?? Where are they?

who ordered?

It happened in their park? probably the local ranger. That is just an inference. Why is this a question?

They went after Adam and 2 others

One was N.A. Poe, the organizer of the event and the other was Don DeZarn, a speaker at the event. There have been previous similar events, so this time the park rangers apparently decided to put a stop to it.

The park rangers went after them when they said to fuck the law, smoke it anyway, and to group closer so the law couldn't get to them. That's part of what they will claim to be obstruction. I don't know about the resisting part, as there is not really anything clear on the videos we are seeing now that would support their claim.

Also, the other 2 guys seem to have been released already.

Fro mwhat I read

He refused to make any comments in court. The Judge appointed an attorney and she said Adam hadn't even been allowed a phone call.

He hasn't gotten an attorney yet because no one has been able to talk with him. This is so wrong on every level.

there's a problem with this train of thought

This whole "I think our position is right therefore we're going to encourage others to break the law and then complain when we're arrested" approach. It makes no sense.

It was a little foolish to physically interfere with an officer at an event like that, and NOT expect to be arrested. Clearly, he's been arrested before, he knew the consequences, and he knew the consequences before he went to this event. Predictability reared its unsurprising head.

In related news, water is wet.

And for the record, I agree, mary jane should be legal. And I applaud those willing to sacrifice their records for civil disobedience. It's really cool that they do this. But they do it knowing full well what might happen. Adam especially!

Felony Assault... come on!!!

Guess what under Felony charges he won't be able to posses a firearm legally. Go think about that for a while.

why?

why should I think about that at all, much less for awhile?

"Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the the universe."-- Albert Einstein

For starters....

How about because marijuana has been decriminalized in Philly for 3 years now so possession is only punishable by a fine.

Ron Paul convert from the Heart of Dixie

maybe I'm missing your point

so tell me: what is marijuana being decriminalized in Philly in relation to me? And what does that have to do with him not being able to own a weapon and my needing to think about it? Or are you guys just randomly typing spew?

"Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the the universe."-- Albert Einstein

What law

Are you claiming he broke?

Ron Paul convert from the Heart of Dixie

I'm not

but it appears the feds are claiming he assaulted an officer and resisted arrest or something involving him interfering with their actions. All of which can land you in the pokey. I'm not saying he did or didn't. Wasn't here. Again, what is your point? You are baffling.

"Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the the universe."-- Albert Einstein

Are you for real??

I'm baffling?? You said,

"This whole "I think our position is right therefore we're going to encourage others to break the law and then complain when we're arrested" approach. It makes no sense."

So again I ask... what law do you claim he broke? And if you do not think he broke any laws why are you not bothered by this, too?

Ron Paul convert from the Heart of Dixie

welll

maybe he broke the law thet are charging him with

"Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the the universe."-- Albert Einstein

I see now

That you edited your comment when I must have been in the middle of replying... or at least a I think you did but I'm going on very little sleep for the past 72 hours.

The video of the arrest shows otherwise.

Ron Paul convert from the Heart of Dixie

edited what?

Cause I posted that hours ago.

"Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the the universe."-- Albert Einstein

You're grasping

Really, you are.

Have you even watched the multiple videos of the arrest?

Try that before you start berating people over what they think.

Ron Paul convert from the Heart of Dixie

Don't feed the trolls...

Don't feed the trolls...

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

hmmm, pot, kettle

so you start out saying he was breaking hte law smoking pot, then you say it was legal, then you say he was n federal property (meaning it wasnt legal). You're just engaging in diversion here.

Look, I don't like the fact that marijuana is illegal anywhere or that Adam or anyone else got arrested. But again, that is the inherent risk if not idea behind civil disobedience.

"Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the the universe."-- Albert Einstein

I never

Said he was smoking anything. I thought that is what you were implying with your comment that I quoted. That is why I asked you which law YOU believed he broke.

I'm done with this conversation. There are so many more important things to do than get dizzy.

Ron Paul convert from the Heart of Dixie

You're already dizzy

as I said before - he was inciting others to break the law. It doesn't matter if he smoked it. He was inciting others. They confronted him. He didn't react perfectly and now he has a more significant charge. It sucks but its true. If he were my client I wouldn't have advised him to have it on federal ground, that's for sure, and especially not with his march being in the planning stages.

I can see the bail/sentencing hearing. So he was inciting law breaking for another event? Ok, here, let's throw the book at him. Bad move. Adam, fire your lawyer, or hire one. Pretending :they: don't exist is a bad strategy.

"Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the the universe."-- Albert Einstein

Are you

Confusing multiple conversations with different people?WTF are you talking about? You are going around in circles with several commenters... I think you are the reason for the block option.

Ron Paul convert from the Heart of Dixie

yeah

then you can block me. You lost the argument. What else is left? Oh cruel internet!

I know: go to a federal park and smoke a bowl! Have at it!
