Adam Kokesh Attorney "Disappointed" Judge Has Not Yet Ruled on Kokesh Bail

• Economic Policy Journal
During Kokesh's last court appearance on August 13, prosecutors continued to object to Kokesh’s release. Broderick ordered prosecutors to submit a response in writing as to why Kokesh should continue to be held without bail, upon which she would render her decision. Most court observers expected a decision by the judge by last week Friday.

These black robe devils and thug prosecutors don't have to justify anything or show anyone any stinkin badges. What do they say about absolute power and all bar attorneys are all part of the matrix. All they know is what the matrix has taught them. They say crime doesn't pay, but that depends on which side of the bench you are sitting on. Anyone who tries to exercise their Constitutional or God given rights today is a criminal and traitor. Like Ron Paul said, "Telling the truth in an empire of lies is treason.

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.”

I hate to admit but I only think of Adam about once a week.  Whenever I do and I Google his name, I am disappointed no movement is apparent in getting him closer to being out of prison.  But at least it appears the judge will have to better justify keeping "a most dangerous man" behind bars who threatened nobody, is accused of violating a Wash. DC law that is treated as a fairly minor crime in that city (albeit one that carries a mandatory 5 year sentence) compared to actual acts of violence and has not resisted police (and indeed informed them immediately upon demand where they could find the shotgun and four shotgun shells described in the search warrant inside his home. 

But there is still some contemporary interest in Kokesh.  He has not been forgotten and abandoned as the justice system would prefer:
