Anarcho-activist Adam Kokesh was ordered held without bond on charges of loading a forbidden shotgun in D.C. (an act he filmed as deliberate political theater), reports radio station WTOP in D.C.
From their report:
A D.C. Superior Court judge has ordered a veteran and activistÂ accused of openly carrying a shotgunÂ in D.C.’s Freedom Plaza held without bond.
During a preliminary hearing Monday, an attorney representing Adam Kokesh argued that the stunt — filmed and posted on YouTube — was nothing more than political theater.
The judge disagreed, ordering that Kokesh be held until his next court appearance.
“I consider your client to be a very dangerous man,” the judge said. “This is not a political statement.”
