Libertarian Activist Who Filmed Himself Loading Shotgun in DC Facing Drug Charges

Roommate claims SWAT team kicked in front door and tossed flashbang during arrest


Adam Kokesh and libertarian activists expected to provoke a police response when heposted a video of himself apparently loading a shotgun on Freedom Plaza in violation of D.C. law on the Fourth of July, but it arrived on his doorstep with an overwhelming boom Tuesday night.

A U.S. Park Police SWAT team and other officers knocked on the door of his single-family home on a quiet Herndon cul-de-sac, then kicked the door in and tossed a flash grenade into the foyer as police helicopters whirled overhead, his roommates said.
