Libertarian Activist Under Investigation For Loading Shotgun In Washington
Libertarian activist and radio host Adam Kokesh released a video showing himself loading a shotgun in the middle of Freedom Plaza in Washington on Thursday with the Capitol building clearly shown behind him.
“We will not be silent, we will not obey, we will not allow our government to destroy our humanity,” Kokesh said as he loaded the gun. “We are, the final, American, revolution. See you next Independence Day.”
Kokesh had previously planned to lead an armed march on Washington to celebrate Independence Day, but backed off when Washington Metropolitan Police pledged to arrest marchers who openly carried rifles into the city.
Officers with the department said they have viewed the video and are currently investigating the activist.
“The Metropolitan Police Department and U.S. Park Police are aware that today Adam Kokesh posted a video that appears to have been taken in Freedom Plaza in Northwest, D.C. We are in the process of determining the authenticity of the video.”
