Herndon, VA (PRWEB) July 12, 2013

Activist advocate Shield Mutual has launched the Free Adam Kokesh Campaign in response to the US Park Police execution of a search warrant on libertarian activist Adam Kokesh at his home in Herndon, Virginia the night of Tuesday, July 9th, as reported by the Washington Post on July 10.

Police kicked in the front door, according to the July 10 Washington Post article. They deployed a stun grenade to his foyer. They searched his home for hours while holding residents. Two helicopters assisted police.

"It was, by far, the most frightening experience of my life," said Kokesh business manager Jewell, one of those held incommunicado during the attack. "And it was entirely unnecessary for people like us who preach peaceful non-cooperation."

According to the July 10 Washington Post article, residents of the home allege that police kicked Kokesh during the execution of the search warrant.

US Park Police claim to have discovered psychedelic mushrooms at Kokesh's residence, according to a July 10 USA Today article. These are a natural fungus that, according to Wikipedia (, has been used by humankind for religious, psychological and recreational purposes since prehistoric times.

Kokesh supporters have raised more than $1,500 for a national media campaign in his defense at, according to Kokesh's public relations defense firm, Shield Mutual.

Kokesh is currently refusing to participate in the legal process, according to the same July 11 CBS DC article ( He was arraigned this morning in a wheelchair.

When Government officials and law enforcement go against the law and against their oath of office, they are rebelling against Government, against the people and against themselves. Another name for it is treason.

When the people correct the rebellion being done by Government officials and law enforcement, it is justice and a correction... not rebellion.

In our kind of Government, governing officials are not situated like kings. Rather, they are situated as servants. As long as we call our actions to correct our corrupt servants a REBELLION, there will be all kinds of folks who will be mixed up about what is right and what is wrong in the situation.

Let's start calling it what it is. It is a CORRECTION. It is a method for putting down the rebellion of corrupt people in Government and law enforcement. And in the case of the United States Government, and most of the Governments of the individual States, the CORRECTION is long overdue.

Nice to see the arrest paperwork, but I would really rather see the pretext for invading the home in the first place.  Where is the search warrant?  What did it say?  Who signed it?  When was it issued?
