How and Why Adam Kokesh was Framed

WeAreChange goes to the home of activist and YouTube host Adam Kokesh to find out what happened on the night he was raided and arrested.

Kokesh’s home was raided following a video he released of him loading a shotgun in Washington D.C. as an act of civil disobedience to protest laws that restrict or deny people of the 2nd amendment. Kokesh did not threaten anyone with the shotgun or use it in any violent way. When his home was raided, the police said that they found magic mushrooms in his safe along with his guns which is a felony charge in Virginia. Kokesh and his housemates who were there on the night of the raid claim the drugs were not Kokesh’s and that he is being set up. They claim the house and the safe was completely clean of any illegal substances and that they actually witnessed police bringing in evidence bags that were already full. Kokesh is currently being held in solitary confinement and has been denied bail.

    If you are deemed a threat, they’ll come and get you.

    pigs planting incriminating evidence?!?!?!?
    who woulda thunk it?

    I live nearby and know the housemates. The police would not have needed to plant any evidence. And it’s not like Kokesh wasn’t actively begging to be thought of as a threat. It’s just funny that for all the gun nuts’ talk about “we need these serious guns to protect ourselves against the government,” when the day actually came they didn’t raise a finger and let the PARK POLICE take them with flashbangs.
