Adam Kokesh is being held as a political prisoner. America shouldn't have political prisoners. Let's make him free.
This isn't about guns. This isn't about left vs right, or whether you like Adam Kokesh or think he's an idiot. This is about human rights.
Adam Kokesh--famed gun-rights enthusiast--made a video on Youtube where he told the federal government, in effect, "you're on notice". His video was about gun rights, but unlike some gun-nuts he did not advocate violence. He did not advocate shooting anyone. He simply advocated political change.
After making the video, 30 police units swarmed Kokesh's house. He and his girlfriend, along with some people staying with them, were beaten. He was arrested. He is being held without bond, without trial, and without bail. The charges are drug possession, but he's being treated worse than a murderer.
For 2 months he was in solitary confinement, which many psychologists agree is torture.
Kokesh's main "crime" was a political movement--he planned to stage a rally next July 4. He didn't hurt anyone, but he's being treated worse than a murderer. He is a political prisoner, pure and simple. America isn't supposed to have political prisoners.
I made a petition on MoveOn.org to free him. We as a nation shouldn't imprison people without trial. We shouldn't beat them or arrest them for political speech. Even Republicans. We are better than that.
