Best vid of Adam Kokesh arrest?Submitted by atrickpay on Mon, 05/20/2013 - 21:28
This is the best video i've seen so far: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qvm5TEIXsfY. The other ones I saw didn't have footage this close to the start of the police goin up to him. This video is still missing, I calculate, 1 second of police contact, and 3 seconds before police contact as they were approaching. Does anybody have a video that show's 100% of the encounter?
Per point 6. of the affidavit (available here:
http://freeadam.net/2013/05/20/adam-kokesh-accused-felony/), here's the specifics on the crime that the Park Ranger alleges Kokesh committed:
"National Park Service Rangers approached members of the crowd who were seen in possession of what appeared to be marijuana cigarettes. KOKESH was next to and had locked arms with a person who had a marijuana cigarette. As the Ranger approached the person with the cigarette, KOKESH physically blocked and obstructed the Ranger. As the RAgner pushed forward, KOKESH grabbed the Ranger by the arm to hold him back. KOKESH was then taken into custody."
