(July 12, 2013) During a Thursday morning arraignment hearing outside of Washington, DC, jailed activist Adam Kokesh refused to answer questions from a judge and was told that he'll continue to be locked up without bond.
Kokesh, 31, will likely now stay in a northern Virginia detention facility until a preliminary hearing scheduled for October 2 is held. He was arrested Tuesday evening at his Herndon, Virginia home and charged with drug and gun felonies.
The raid on Kokesh's home occurred amid a US Park Police investigation which was brought on by a video that the Second Amendment activist posted on YouTube a week earlier.
In the clip, Kokesh is seen loading a shotgun in downtown DC's Freedom Plaza -- located just two blocks away from the White House.
"We will not be silent. We will not obey. We will not allow our government to destroy our humanity," Kokesh said in the clip, which was recorded after his planned "Open Carry March" was cancelled amid warnings from law enforcement.
