I noticed you felt compelled to post back to back. Odd. I'm not quite sure what the motivation is but I'll bite.
Kokesh resisted arrest, you can clearly see that in the video.
That is completely false. At no point in any of the video footage available can you see Adam offering any resistance at all. You are free to say it
and even believe it but that doesn't change the fact that you would be the 1% of people who come to such a conclusion because it's untruthful, biased
and in my opinion an outright lie.
In fact, the charge that has been assigned to Adam is resisting arrest. That charge however comes from the claim that he locked arms with another
person that police were approaching to arrest, something that was not shown in the video footage. So, there is no evidence to back up your claim of
seeing him resist, factual or in the realm of common sense that you have personally seen.
This one has me amazed at the everything is a conspiracy nuts; Kokesh's name recognition is non-existent outside of a small subset of a small group.
He's essentially a guy with a podcast who is obsessed with getting publicity for himself and failing miserably. The fact that his arrest got little to
no media coverage is quite telling, yet his "fans" seem to think his arrest should get the same attention as Lindsay Lohan's arrest.
So let me get this straight....... Now I'm an everything is a conspiracy nut? What are you exactly? Why are you concerned about how many fans Kokesh
has? This thread isn't aimed at Kokesh glorification and if you had read through it, you would have seen that I said it did not matter that it was
him, it only mattered that it happened at all and it could have been anyone. What is the motivation to attack his number of fans or character? If it
is because you don't personally like Adam Kokesh then I can see why your comprehension of the event is so biased to begin with.
By the way, while we are on the subject, your wrong once again in the little to no media coverage.
The Huffington Post
I've listened to Kokesh's podcast a few times and while I agree with him on some issues, I find his delivery to be so unstable and disjointed causing
his good points to get lost in a sea of chaos and self promotion.
Well, I agree with you there, I'm not a huge fan of Adam and while I listen to his podcast sometimes, I only agree with him half the time and the
other half I think he is off the mark but that really doesn't have anything at all to do with his Constitutional rights, does it?
I saw that he has a defense fund set up; I'd feel safer giving my banking information to this Nigerian gentleman who needs help transferring money
than I would about money donated for Kokesh being used properly.... His "legal defense fund" sounds really shady; it's "managed" by something called
"Shield Mutual" whose website is shieldmutual.com... and wouldn't you know that website "will be back soon" and has the same framework
as that "Free Adam" site.
Thats great! Was anyone talking about you donating to him here? If you don't feel comfortable donating, then don't. Your opinion that it sounds really
shady is uninspiring to the conversation at hand.
I value our civil liberties and despise injustice; but reserve the outrage for situations that merit outrage. The Kokesh arrest does not meet my
threshold because I have two eyes, great vision and watched the video; the video clearly documents resisting arrest at the very least.
So, clearly your two eyes are better than everyone elses who witnessed the event live, who seen the video footage and in point of fact the police as
the arresting event took place off of camera? Your observations and motivations are grossly suspect, if you have real content to discuss, Id be more
than happy to have a conversation about it but your last post was way off the mark in every way.
