U.S. Park Police along with Herndon Police are serving a search warrant at the home of Adam Kokesh, a pro-gun activist who was seen on a YouTube video posted on July 4th loading a shotgun in Freedom Plaza.

Roads were blocked off near Kokesh's home on Snowflake Court and his neighbors have been told to stay inside.

I just

found it. Nice feature. Hope I never get that agitated.

Ron brought the Liberty movement together, Rand is expanding the crap out of it! :)

"Kokesh had nothing to do

"Kokesh had nothing to do with this"!
Hey TRICK don't speak of things you know nothing about.
The five of us who put this march together took what Adam said to heart about organizing marches across the nation, and said "lets do this".
We were hoping for 20 or 30 people and it grew to 200.
How many Independence Day open carry marches in Texas BEFORE this one and ones like it in Austin, Temple etc? NONE!
Yep, us Texicans are proud or our Liberty.
Which open carry march did you participate in? NONE?
P.S.
I'm 71 years young and have smoked ganga since I was 18.
You should try it sometime. Might open up your thought process.

Huh?

I cooked some awesome steaks and shrimp brochette on the fourth and drank some cold ones and celebrated my Independence Day here in Texas like i always do. Us real 'Texans' don't need to band together in groups to feel safe and practice our rights and we damn sure don't need Adam Kokesh to tell us when to do so and we damn sure don't go around trying to provoke cops by blowing smoke in their faces if we decide to smoke some weed.
I practice my second amendment rights just about everywhere i go on a daily basis, do YOU? I also open carry on a regular basis and i don't have to 'organize' to do so or run with groups to feel safe about it like you do 'Texican'. lol
I've smoked the weed before but you have to grow up some day. If your smoking that mexican crap you are surely smoking poison full of herbicides and pesticides, just some more of those pesky little factoids you dope heads refuse to acknowledge..your probably crawling with lesions by now smoking that crap !

You just said you organized the march.

You and 4 other people. Kokesh wasn't involved, as I understand it, according to you.

You deserve the praise for DOING SOMETHING.

What did Kokesh actually do here? I still haven't seen any posts about things he DID.

Exactly !

Exactly !

An Alternative Theory

You may recall Kokesh was arrested in May at a Smoke Down in Philadelphia, along with a writer N.A. Poe. The arresting agency at that time was the U.S. Park Police. ( http://intellihub.com/2013/05/18/breaking-n-a-poe-adam-kokes... ) If you doubt this, since most articles say it was the Philadelphia Police, just look at threads here at the time, that gave the phone number to call, it was to the Park Police. He was held in a Federal Detention Center over that weekend ( http://www.usnews.com/news/blogs/washington-whispers/2013/05... ) I remember this from hearing his interview with Ernest Hancock the next week as he read his speech he wrote while in his cell.

The agency that served the search warrant on his house was the U.S. Park Police as well as the Herndon Police. "U.S. Park Police Lt. Pamela Smith said her agency executed a search warrant at Kokesh’s home in Herndon about 7:45 p.m." ( http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/activist-adam-kokesh-rep... )

In that article they also report the crime he's actually being charged with - "Charging documents filed in court Wednesday morning said Kokesh was charged with possession of hallucinogenic mushrooms, a Schedule I narcotic, while possessing a firearm." It seems many people are assuming the crime he's being charged with, 'guessing' it must be related to the shotgun incident in a park last week.

Also consider this, N.A. Poe, the other guy arrested with Kokesh back in May, announced yesterday via Facebook "the federal government has dropped both felony and misdemeanor charges and will be issuing me three citations after a court appearance later this week" ( http://www.philebrity.com/2013/07/09/charges-dropped-against... )

Is it a coincidence that the charges for Poe were dropped to citations yesterday, and the Park Police served a search warrant on Kokesh?

I think this raid was about the incident in May, and not about the 23 second publicity stunt last week.

Statists in this thread

Statists in this thread raging against psychedelic mushrooms like it's meth mixed with crack.

cheap shot

I don't give a crap what you people poison your minds and bodies with. In fact i hope you people smoke more of that crap that's filled with herbicides and pesticides as if your dumb enough to advocate for it you should reap the rewards of it. Smoke it up Johnny, ALL you want !
What i care about is the stain you put on this movement and people like Rand and second amendment activist! Decent people trying to bring us back from this tragedy. Then there are curious people who come here to read up on Ron or Rand and the first thing they see is Potheads and Christian bashing from all the Libtards and kids with nothing to lose but there bag of dope like the Adam Kokesh Cult that have infested this forum and it does nothing but push them back where they came from. If you people have your way about things NOTHING will ever change. Carry on, I have to go make some money for my 17 year old sons future now..Puff Puff give....

When more instrusive tyrannical measures come upon the people

I will remind you to turn to Rand and all those unstained decent people who have only ever capitulated to big government and its tyrannies for help. I will not defend or come to your aid on that day. I will not know you on that day. I will advocate anyone who has ever had the courage to resist and endured persecution by government ignore your pleas for help.

Do you actually believe that people who have only ever capitulated to big government or it's tyrannies are ever going to resist anything more intrusive? By their fruits of capitulation ye shall know them. Carry on and go make some money because Ceasar is expecting timely tribute to make an interest payment on debt your son will be obligated to pay.

I do not need you to

come to my aid ! I can take care of myself if this should happen and i wouldn't want no stoner shooting around me anyway, you would probably screw up and shoot yourself ! You have a problem with people making money ? No surprise there. That dept my son will be obligated to pay is exactly why i like making money unlike those of you who are content with sitting on your asses and burning weed all day and passing the burden on to your kids and grand kids..

Exactly, Sounds like Conservative warrior has it figured out.

To smoke pot would put you in a category of lazy, good for nothings, that put you in the ranks with those such as Obama, Michael Phelps, Sir Richard Branson, Montel Williams, Ted Turner, and Steven King. Losers one and all, so I solemnly agree with your opinion, and can see how others should fall in line as well. Sounds like everyone should be listening no further, it is resolved and beyond question. thanks for your insight CW, you are the man!

Stay IRATE, remain TIRELESS, an

Drug prohibition and it's

Drug prohibition and it's prison industrial complex are symptoms of an out of control police state. Prohibition creates a 3rd class group of citizens looked down upon by those who eat up the government's drug propaganda and preyed upon by police looking to make quotas. The drug war costs tax payers ridiculous amounts of money and creates a violent black market lead by gangs and cartels who are funded thanks to prohibition.

I don't really care about your opinion regarding the drug war but it doesn't take a genius to see how it goes hand and hand with the liberty movement.

My opinion ( not that it matters)

is the war on drugs is immoral..SURPRISE !

"If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin."
Samuel Adams

"'those who eat up the government's drug propaganda "

and THAT is precisely the reason Adam Kokesh should have played it smart if he wanted a real debate on the second amendment because AS YOU STATED the people will see him as some crazed drug addict and will reserve themselves from coming to his aid or debating the second amendment on his behalf. This story will be a dead issue in 3 weeks for everyone but Adam and his little cult following! The guy screwed up what he was trying to do. he is incapable of picking his battles wisely and his priorities are ass backwards..

I posted a forum topic containing the press release from the Adam vs. the Man staff concerning Adam's arrest.

Kokesh

had nothing to do with this ! Texas has always been proud of their rights and they exercise them without getting busted for drugs and smoking weed in front of Cops unlike some moronic kids in here! BIG difference ass hat! We know our rights and don't just practice them one day a year and again we do not go around provoking cops which is why most cops here leave us the hell alone...TRICK!

Seriously, I doubt Adam would have had DRUGS in his

house----oh, right---to convenience the FEDS?

that's exactly why, hopefully, Adam time/date videoed every nook and cranny to prove that he had NO DRUGS at his home, prior to filming this event---oh, and as with 1-2 witnesses who could testify in court.

Yes, he baited them, but let's hope & pray he outwitted them.

Nah

he wouldn't have it in his private home but he has no problem smoking DMT and pot on youtube and right in front of cops blowing it their faces...Riiiight !

We should get a bunch of

We should get a bunch of people to make green screen video's of them selves loading firearms in front of locations in washington DC and saying the same thing Adam did on his video.

Skip the Green Screen

!

Proof

Hey D.A.
How are you going to "prove" he committed a crime?
How can you "prove" those bullets and the gun are real?
Where is your "proof"?
Good thing Adam didn't have a dog, it would be dead now.
Flash grenade...Geez, talk about over reacting.
Just like Edward Snowden, gotta make an example out of those who speak out against the "corrupt" regime.

SteveMT's picture

Don't these people know how to knock?

They are acting just like our police-state government. Oh, I forgot. They ARE our police-state government.

For an historical perspective on this raid, let us ask some people in history.
What would Jefferson, Franklin, and Paine say?
What would Hitler, Mao, and Stalin say?

Anyone remember the cop who looked like he was

trying to plant something on Adam's person when he got arrested in Pennsylvania at the pot rally? That video probably kept them from being able to stick him with drug charges. Now there is no video of the arrest.

Even if Adam is a user, I doubt that he would be stupid enough to have drugs on the premises after picking such a huge fight with the Feds over gun control.

Nice Try !

That wasn't a cop, it was one of Adam's fellow Stoners trying to keep his balance..KEY word being 'BALANCE'..clearly something dope addicts do not comprehend...
