Last Saturday’s marijuana legalization rally in Philadelphia, where radio host and political activist Adam Kokesh gave a keynote speech and was arrested, was possibly designated a potential terror event beforehand and attended by police specially trained to deal with terrorism.
Judging by a red patch spotted on police jackets visible in footage of Kokesh’s arrest, members of the city’s federalized Homeland Security Bureau, trained to deal with “civil affairs” and “counter-terrorism operations,” appear to have been patrolling the event.
In at least two separate videos of the protest, numerous officers are seen wearing their normal blue and white uniforms outfitted with standard Philadelphia police patches. Other officers can also be seen, however, dressed in black jackets festooned with mysterious red patches that surround the traditional Philadelphia police emblem.
