Breaking: Adam Kokesh Denied Bond Again

Adam Kokesh has again been denied bond.


Check back for updates.


Via WaPo:

A D.C. Superior Court judge said Tuesday that she was considering ordering a Virginia-based gun rights activist released from jail and into a high-intensity supervision program as he awaits trial.


Also WaPo:

Adam Kokesh, 31, has been in D.C. jail since July 25, when he was arrested for carrying a firearm in the District outside of his home or office. The charge stems from a video Kokesh posted of himself apparently loading a shotgun in Freedom Plaza on Independence Day.

At a Tuesday hearing, Judge Patricia A. Broderick said she needed verifiable proof of Adam Kokesh’s address in Virginia before she would consider placing him on GPS monitoring or home confinement.

Prosecutors continued to object to Kokesh’s release. Broderick ordered prosecutors to submit a response in writing, upon which she would render her decision. At a previous hearing last month, Kokesh’s attorney, Peter Cooper, told a judge his client lived with eight roommates in a house in Herndon.

Also during the hearing, prosecutors said they were working on a putting together a plea deal, which is common in such cases. A tentative trial date was set for Oct. 24.


Derrick Broze writes on Facebook:
He looked a little pale, and it was sick to see the marshal's parade him around in chains like he is hannibal lecter.
This direct confrontation in your face attitude with government is not the way to go. As Noam Chomsky once put it:  "I don't want to speak truth to power, I want to speak truth to the public."

  1. The state does this to someone who simply just loads a shotgun in a park, I can only imagine what Bradley Manning is going to be going through (or should I say what he hasn't gone through) for the rest of his life. If not Manning, Snowden.
