Libertarian radio host, Iraq war veteran and anti-war activist Adam Kokesh was arrested Sunday at a pro-marijuana rally in Philadelphia.
In the moments before his arrest, around 4:20 p.m. at Independence National Historic Park, Kokesh encouraged the crowd to smoke pot and to "make it difficult for the police" to break up the rally, according to video of the incident.
"I'm being assaulted by an officer of the law who is a clear criminal," Kokesh said into his microphone at the "Smoke Down Prohibition" rally as officers struggled to get Kokesh into handcuffs. People in the crowd looked on, chanting, "Stop the violence!"
