Gun activist Adam Kokesh charged

Washington (CNN) -- Pro-gun activist Adam Kokesh, recently seen in an Internet video loading and cocking a shotgun, is being held in a Washington jail for three days pending a detention hearing on Monday, a judge ruled.

He is charged with carrying a rifle or shotgun outside a home or place of business, an offense that carries a maximum of five years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000.

Kokesh, an Iraq veteran, made headlines with a July Fourth video posted to YouTube in which he loaded a shotgun in the middle of the national capital's Freedom Plaza.

He also used Facebook to call for an armed march in Washington for the same day but called off the event in May. It is illegal to carry firearms in the District of Columbia.

District of Columbia Magistrate Judge Lori Parker said Kokesh "poses a danger" and went "out of his way" to violate the district's laws.

Kokesh's attorney, Peter Cooper, said after the appearance in the Superior Court of the District of Columbia that his client is making a "political statement," but argued the government is doing the same thing.

"Their allegation about danger, I believe, is unwarranted," Cooper said.
Kokesh was originally arrested July 9 after a police search of his suburban Washington home in Herndon, Virginia, found a firearm and an illicit drug, an illegal combination in the state of Virginia.

He posted bond on Thursday for that charge, but "never saw the light of day" as police picked him up soon afterward, Cooper said.

Kokesh has a history of publicly airing his opinions. He was discharged from the Marines in 2007 for wearing his uniform during an anti-war protest.

In his now infamous YouTube video, Kokesh states: "We will not be silent. We will not obey. We will not allow our government to destroy our humanity."

Then, loading shells into the shotgun, he looks into a camera, saying, "We are the final American revolution. See you next Independence Day."
It's hard for me to feel sorry for this guy. It seems like he's finding exactly what he's looking for.
People like him are a natural reaction to this environment. Could he spend his time better? Sure, but there's bound to be some who react like this and, at the least he makes people think, makes them that much more aware that there is a need to disobey, in his own little way.

I kind of agree with the Doctor.

Kokesh is going out of his way to get himself picked up.

For publicity? For his love of the 2nd Amendment?

Maybe a little of both...but it seems like he got exactly what he was hoping for and, in a way, makes gun owners look wacko in the process.
yeah. HIs open carry march was just a bad idea.

The guy is too extreme.

but he does some good work as well.
Something not right about that guy. Would anyone be surprised to find out he's an agent?

Not one bit.
some people think he's an agents provocateur..

i dunno. alex jones seems to endorse him.

but that open carry march could have gone sour really quickly.. leading to massive blowback.
I think he's legit.. but a little too gung-ho and extreme.

they are very worried about all the military vets who come back and start reading infowars or following ron paul.

because they were in the heart of action in the ME so they know the deal.

Military Vets will be monitored very closely.


I think Alex jones is legit if you just go by what he is saying.

The only way he could be a shill is if he is responsible for collecting a database on all the "patriots" and "libertarians"
Color me skeptical as well.

Admittedly I only know about Kokesh from hearing a couple of his interviews on AJ's show, but it seems to me (i) at best he is a publicity hound trying to ride AJ's coattails and (ii) at worst he is an agent provocateur.

Jones tries not to isolate any race or ethnic group. I think this is smart. he can reach a wider audience this way.

because at the end of the day.. you're unhappy about consolidated power trying to impose world socialism. In a way, it doesn't really matter who is doing it.

If Jones ends up raising awareness of Bilderberg.. and people start to protest against them.. the goal of dismantling them will be achieved.

you see where I am getting at?
But it doesn't stop them from building a new Bilderberg. If people don't know where world socialism comes from it can all happen again under a different term and cloak. Instead him and Icke are at Bilderberg ranting about Nazis.
