Activist Adam Kokesh US political prisoner

Jul 29, 2013 by

WASHINGTON – A D.C. Superior Court judge has ordered a veteran and activist accused of openly carrying a shotgun in D.C.’s Freedom Plaza held without bond.

During a preliminary hearing Monday, an attorney representing Adam Kokesh argued that the stunt — filmed and posted on YouTube — was nothing more than political theater.

The judge disagreed, ordering that Kokesh be held until his next court appearance.

“I consider your client to be a very dangerous man,” the judge said. “This is not a political statement.”

Kokesh had been arrested and charged with drug-related offenses in Fairfax County, Va., earlier in July.

He is expected back in a D.C. courtroom Aug. 13.
