On May 28, 2011 Television host Adam Kokesh and several other activists participating in a flash-mob were arrested at the publicly-funded Thomas Jefferson Memorial. Their crime? Silently dancing, in celebration of the first amendment’s champion; a clear violation of their right to free-expression. In an excessive use of force, video was captured of Adam being body slammed and placed in a choke for his non-crime.

  2. What kind of U.S. citizen commits police brutality in front of Thomas Jefferson? Every one of US in this country has a RIGHT TO PURSUE HAPPINESS: and dancing makes US happy! So why has the Park Police taken it upon themselves to shame themselves in front of our founding father by acting like fascist idiots backing a nasty agenda made by worthless corrupt dogs? … And how dare they choke an American Military Veteran: shame on them!

  3. Adam Kokesh holds it down on the dance floor. Maybe we should set up the TSA to body scan everybody at the memorial.

    check out Adam in his summer smash hit.
    [edit: see video at end of the post.]

  4. I saw the RJR version first. I could NOT believe how upset I got. This one makes it even worse from this camera angle. Choking is the last thing before someone is MURDERED is a FELONY. To choke someone in handcuffs is really beyond the pale.

    These guys must have terrible training. When I saw that the park police ALL had tasers I freaked out as I just knew things would get totally out of control. And it has.
