We discussed Iraq Veterans Against the War member Adam Kokesh and his crackpot march on DC with loaded, openly carried weapons last May. Well, since the DC cops and the Park Police kind of shut down that idea from the get-go, he went all by his lonesome to Freedom Plaza, a few blocks from the White House, and loaded a shotgun. It’s here on this video;
According to WUSA9, the Park police are aware of the video;
US Park Police know about the video, says a spokesman, and they responded to Freedom Plaza to investigate. Park Police officers did not find Kokesh, or any protest going on, there.
The spokesperson said Park Police are investigating, but at this point cannot determine how the video was recorded, and if and when Kokesh may have been at Freedom Plaza with a gun.
After speaking with the USPP spokesperson, the Metropolitan Police Department released the following statement:
“The Metropolitan Police Department and US Park Police are aware that today Adam Kokesh posted a video that appears to have been taken in Freedom Plaza in Northwest, DC. We are in the process of determining the authenticity of the video.”
Thanks for making us gun owners look like crazy people, Adam. It’s almost like Kokesh is working against gun rights. I mean, it’s not like he’s pretended to be on the opposite side of an issue to make one of his pointless points.
