Adam Vs The Man | With Your Host, Adam Kokesh | M-F 7pm E.T on RT America On May28, 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. [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8jUU3yCy3uI]YouTube - ‪Adam Kokesh body slammed, choked, police brutality at Jefferson Memorial‬‏[/ame] About About U.S. District Judge John D. Bates ruled in a 26-page opinion this past Monday, based on a lawsuit stemming from the arrest of Mary Oberwetter who was silently dancing with a group of friends at the Memorial in celebration of TJs birthday in 2008, that the interior of the Memorial is not a public forum where people may dance, even if they are silently boogeying to music on headphones. The purpose of the memorial is to publicize Thomas Jeffersons legacy, so that critics and supporters alike may contemplate his place in history, Bates wrote. The Park Service prohibits all demonstrations in the interior of the memorial, in order to maintain an atmosphere of calm, tranquility, and reverence Prohibiting demonstrations is a reasonable means of ensuring a tranquil and contemplative mood at the Jefferson Memorial, the judge added. This is an infringement on our right to express ourselves under the 1st Amendment. Bring your IPods! Remember, we want to be respectful of others who want to silently contemplate this great Founder who arguably best embodied the values and ideas of this country! Free your mind and your ass will follow! One last thing, just to make everyone aware of the nature of these actions. It is an act of civil disobedience and could result in arrest. We hope this doesnt happen, and are taking every possible action to avoid this, if possible, while exercising our Constitutionally guaranteed rights.
