In this video I present the facts about the attack against Adam Kokesh. Adam bought some land in Arizona, it is located within the imaginary boundaries called Yavapai County. These lines are no different than the parish boundaries for the Catholic Church; just because you are physically within those boundaries, doesn’t mean you’re within the church.
David Williams, an employee of the county government, did not like that Adam started building and doing improvements on land Adam owned outright without first getting permission from Williams. Williams believes a written instrument from 1910 creates an obligation on Adam to comply with Williams’s demands.
I spoke with Williams on the phone and he was unable to provide any evidence his claim against Adam is true. He believes the constitution and code apply to Adam because he’s physically in Arizona, but he admittedly cannot prove it.
Rather than leave Adam alone until he had evidence of jurisdiction, Williams chose to escalate the matter. While he is telling people Adam chose the hearing, he neglects to mention he only offered Adam a false choice, either an admin hearing or a criminal prosecution. Despite a third option, acting in good faith and consistent with due process by dropping his attack until he had evidence of jurisdiction, Williams only went with escalation.
I contacted the County Board of Supervisors in an effort to stop escalation, I spoke to Jack Smith, the chairman. Smith was admittedly not able to prove the constitution and code applied to Adam and agreed to speak with Williams and ask that the matter not be escalated until evidence of jurisdiction was presented. Smith did not keep his word, instead kicking the can to Craig Brown, district four supervisor.
Despite many messages by phone and email about the situation, Brown never responded. No one on the Board of Supervisors could present any facts proving the constitution and code apply to Adam just because he’s physically in Arizona. Neither could one of their attorneys, Jack Fields.
Despite the lack of evidence, Williams was permitted to escalate the matter and Adam has been summoned to an administrative hearing in Prescott, Arizona on 9 August 2016. I will be assisting.
One thing is certain about the hearing, Williams and his accomplices will still not be able to prove the constitution and code apply to Adam just because he is physically in Arizona.
Adam also posted a video to his YouTube channel detailing his legal attack:
