This is an open letter to Sheriff Akin of Wise County, January 24th 2018.

Sheriff Akin my name is Adam Kokesh. On January 16th 2018, I announced that I am running for President of the United States as a Libertarian on the platform of the peaceful, orderly, responsible dissolution of the US federal Government.

On that same day I was falsely arrested in your county by Texas state trooper Garcia. That is why I am currently enjoying a government induced, tax payer funded, spiritual retreat at the Wise County Jail. I would tell you more about the incident; the charges, the circumstances, and the full name of the arresting officer. But although I have been locked up for more than a week and despite my repeated demands, I have yet to receive a single piece of paper from the government regarding the incident of my unjust imprisonment. As the county sheriff you have the ability to set things right in this case. I intend to help you. I will make it as easy as possible to achieve justice so long as you cooperate with me in good faith and honor your oath to the constitution; similar to the one I took when I enlisted in the United States Marine Corps. I swore to defend it against ALL enemies both foreign and DOMESTIC.

I watched fellow marines dies in combat in Fallujah, Iraq to allegedly defend the freedom of my fellow Americans. Needless to say, it was quite disheartening to return home to find that if the terrorists ever hated us for our freedom, they should love us by now. We found out the hard way that the greatest enemies of the constitution are not to be found in the sands of some far off land, but rather right here at home.

I hope that your opposition to the constitution is unintentional rather than deliberate. Now that the issue has been raised we shall soon see if you are one of many domestic enemies of the constitution or if you will join me in standing up for freedom, justice and American values. You have access to sufficient evidence to determine that my arrest was false, and that officer Garcia acted with deliberate malice and disregard for my rights. You can watch my videos that I broadcast live of the arrest until I was unlawfully ordered to stop filming. You can see that there were several violations of police procedure and my rights as ascribed by the 4th Amendment of United States Constitution. I am writing to you to report several crimes. I have been falsely arrested and imprisoned.

An innocent man sits in your jail, the victim of a dangerous criminal in uniform that still roams the streets to terrorize the good people of Wise County, who you have a DUTY to protect. If you don’t think that terror is the effect of his presence; I challenge you to survey the residents of Wise County and ask them how they feel when a state trooper pulls up behind them. I bet you everything that I own that you will hear more words like, fear and anxiety, than safe and secure.

Do your duty. Pursue this matter appropriately and arrest officer Garcia. I will not rest until I see him wearing the same striped uniform that I am wearing now. You are in possession of stolen goods. There was nothing that was taken from me that day that was taken lawfully. I demand that all my property be returned to me immediately including my dog Baloo and my RV, No Force One. I demand that you make arrangements to compensate me for all damages done to my property, time lost due to false imprisonment, and all towing and impound fees.

You can pass the bill to the arresting officer. Instruct the Wise County District Attorney to not oppose my writ of Habeas Corpus and for the presiding judge to grant it, so that you can release me without restrictions or pending charges.

Do the right thing. Regardless of how well you handle this there will be a number of lawsuits stemming from this incident and I intend to extract as much money as possible from the criminal arresting officer, Wise County, the great state of Texas, and all other individuals who can be held accountable, possibly even your yourself; for the numerous civil rights violations that I have experienced in your facility. Including having a female guard deliberately walk in on me while sitting on the toilet in my cell.

I will not take a single penny from any lawsuits; for myself or my political causes. It will all be returned to the people of Wise County with priority given to compensating your other victims.

I have presented you with a very important choice. It will affect you until your last day on earth regardless of what you decide. It is now up to you to show the world if you are a man of courage and conviction or cowardess and corruption. I advise you to meet me in my cell, M3-D32 or as I like to call it, The Kokesh Presidential Suite, at your earliest convenience to discuss these matters. I assume you will consult with attorneys before taking any action, I strongly suggest that you consult with your conscience first.


Adam Charles Kokesh

Inmate Number 95195

PS I would have sent this letter by certified mail, but that option is not currently available to me as I have been denied access to even any of the normally available resources necessary to mount a proper legal defense. Last night, I read this letter to my staff over the phone from my cell. By the time you read this, it will have already been publicly released as a blog, a podcast, and a video on numerous platform to millions of people online, and emailed to all local public officials and media in Wise County for whom my staff can find contact information.

Cool huh?

I hope they don't keep him as long as our own Dean Clifford here in Canada. Dean was in maximum security for 3 years for teaching seminars on freedom! Let's free Adam now!

Free Adam!

very bad written letter and and points does accuse the sheriff of been unconstitutional. Does not describe anywhere what happened but dances around someone is in jail. Is telling the Sheriff what to do and how to do his job. If that guy is running for president, he needs a better education on how to get his point across

Interesting to read, but doubt it will make anything happen, unfortunately =\

False Activist Adam Kokesh go hail.


To be honest - I have no clue who to believe in this saga. I have looked at the video and have seen no indication that the cops where doing anything unlegal. They brought out the dog which is looking for drugs and then they arrested you. Maybe you are right and it is a big conspiracy - but maybe not. I will never know.

BTW, it is normal that you are not getting a pen and a piece of paper but have access to a smart phone?

What is this all about , omg the Sheriff ????

Like I said when I watched his video when officer garcia pulled him over for a 2nd time in under an hour. I have NEVER heard of anyone ever getting pulled over for doing 9 mph over the speed limit on a Highway or Freeway.

And he has been in jail for over 1 week. I hope Adam gets a TON of money from the state of texas and garcia and anyone else that is involved for this wrong prosecution.

You can do it! Just never give up! Don't let them win!

Welcome to the land of the unintended consequences my Texas friends. You are pouring gasoline on a campaign fire. Not water.

No Fake, More Social Media exposure is likely a Plus for the Campaign!

My thoughts exactly. I think his follower count increased quite a bit during all this.
Hopefully it'll keep increasing. (For a novel, for example, the critical fans numbers for things to get rolling is around 30,000.)

Good! I hope the law will regret this. Hopeful that this kidnapping and theft will lead to changes in some of the ridiculous drug war laws we have here in Texas. Shared to groups and pages on Facebook and resteemed. Godspeed!

@adamkokesh This really sickens me to my stomach, the corruption that still goes on in the police force even in today's age where almost everyone has internet access to the real truth! Unfortunately it's left up to good men like you that need to lead the rest of us in the fight for what's right! So many innocent people are put away every day and whole families turn apart and everyone just accepts it! Come on people fight this every step of the way! We need people like this running for the people not for the lobbyists!
Wishing you all the best keep up the good fight justice must prevail !
peace and Love my Friend! Upvoted resteemed and followed!

Who has the link to the arrest video? I heard this guy got arrested for carrying a shotgun in washington dc headed towards the oval office. Would love to SEE the truth. Cant take either sides word in situations like this.

Ballsy. And totally appropriate and fair.

Good luck to Adam, and thankyou to all those helping him.

Hope Baloo is doing well.

Thank you! And yes Baloo is fine but he is missing Adam for sure!

Thanks for letting me know. Poor puppy must be getting frantic.

BALOO for VP??? ;)

Really deep brother and nice exposition of the corruption of the police force that are sworn to protect life and property but instead go around terrorizing innocent souls with so much impunity and disregard for the law.

I really pray and hope that this goes viral and that officer garcia is brought to book and to face the law squarely for all your rights that have been violated.

with you brother til the vry end when you shall regain your fredom

This is so fucking cool of Adam! The text is written out so damn well! Also the way Adam calls his cell "The Kokesh Presidential Suite"! Fucking awesome!
Now we will see, if the sheriff is a good man or just a corrupt bastard!

The Sheriff is A PIG! Maybe PROTEST outside that SCUMBAGS HOUSE?
Weird no one was interested in my offer? With all the money being produced here I would expect a strong presence IN TEXAS, but sounds like nothing, what is going on here ADAM? Glad I am being IGNORED HERE so I guess I will move on. Wish Adam luck, he's gonna need it.

How much longer can we let this go on America? How much longer can we tolerate an oppressive system that declared us enemies of the state back in 1933 when we were sold into slavery? They expect us to act with honor and yet they extort, plunder us and sovereign nations, and murder innocents everyday! How much longer until it is one of us beaten, robbed, imprisoned, or murdered. If we can't peaceably reconcile by changing the system from within, then we are running out of alternatives...

So where is the footage of the unlawful arrest? I have seen many of Adams stunts and many of them provoke people into situations... He pushed boundaries for sure. I am curious to see what happened in this situation.

I hope that this matter will be publicized

Thank you for sharing. I will pass on for other to hear.

Let him know how you feel!

Saya sangat menyukainya

I’ll be honest it was easy to have doubts in the first few days, but now I’m really excited to see how this unfolds. Your genius is showing... (all y’all )

I will forward this letter to the state senator from that area, Don Huffines, who was elected with help from the Republican Liberty Caucus. I have no idea if it will help. With tyranny like this occurring in my home state I will not stay silent.

Maybe this is an option or worth a try.
Not only for smart meters but also for liability of government officials.

This is just awesome!!!!!! Let's see what the coward does. Re Baloo, I thought Baloo was out of jail and safe. Is that not the case???

a good post and cool, can be used as a guide of the post as good as this

yes good boss

Wow this is crazy!

I think your Post is for a big group of people very helpful!
Thx for making this Website for us!
Upvote when your in my opinion @alokkamboj

You may also want to think of renaming the county after this, sheriff. There aren't many Wise decisions being made in this case. Free Adam!

Thanks brother.... i like it

Go ahed bro.. no tension.. we are alwys with you

That's crazy!!!



Im intrigued. I wonder if this will acrually work. Most government simply doesnt care anymore. Our threats hold no clout. Their band of goons know they will have no reprocution from their actions.


I hope Akin get to see this...


Where is the Bundy militia when you need them?

Do the right thing sheriff!

This is not his first video calling for his freedom. Will continute to follow the story.

Sheriff Akin is probably shaking in his boots right about now!!!!

Hope Adam will be ok, please keep us updated and I really want the Sheriff Akin of Wise County to do the right thing in this situation...

I really feel bad for how bad government institutions work nowadays ...

La impunidad esta a cualquier nivel, y en cualquier pais. Liberen a @adamkokesh,

What the story. ...😐

Well, it's a bit difficult for Sheriff Akin. Interesting to see what actions the Sheriff will take in this case. Definitely friend Adam proves to be very skilled with the verb and with writing. It is to be feared and respected. Greetings.

I support your freedom @adamkokesh, the freedom that is absolutely acceptable to every human being

Cowboy hat suits him

Well Adam, you've spelled your point and your stance out to these "above the law" entities. I surely wish you the absolute best, and hope you actually get to nail them all to the wall! Enough is enough, where's your lawyer? #FreeKolesh

@adamkokesh If the election was today I would Vote for you for President.

Great work lets hope it rattles his conscience hey.

Free ADAM !!! 💯🐒

i liked it!!

How much longer would we be able to release this on America? How much longer would we be able to endure an onerous framework that proclaimed us adversaries of the state in 1933 when we were sold into subjection? They anticipate that us will act with respect but then they blackmail, loot us and sovereign countries, and murder innocents ordinary! How much longer until the point that it is one of us beaten, victimized, detained, or killed. In the event that we can't serenely accommodate by changing the framework from inside, at that point we are coming up short on options...

Everyone is entitled to justice in the eyes of the law. Justice must prevail. Good luck @adamkokesh

I believe in the message and the cause, but this sounds condescending and forceful. Just a humble piece of advice would be to tone down some of the language.

When dealing with bullies, the only way they understand is forceful and condescending, it is their stock in trade. Any toning down of the language leads them to believe they have the upper hand. I think there was enough humility coupled with forceful commentary and subtle threat to be a good thing, not a bad thing.

And when they are in the wrong, what right do they have for respect? For the uniform? Dress a gorilla in a monkey suit and he is still a gorilla.

You need to fight force with force. I am willing to bet that they were not polite and forward with him.

Oh, my heart saddened of so much corruption in the world. I thought that this just was passing "shamelessly" in my country. God be with you. #FreeKokesh

That's great, aim a newbe, follow and upvote me please, thank's.

I hope every one will have peace in their mind, and do not act selfishly.

The online world now is very powerful, it can damage or create desirable change in our world.

Wow...this is really intense.
Feeling bad for the person writting this letter.

Adam Kokesh. Check out his DTube or Youtube channel. He is great.

Best content, please follow back


good post, do not forget to follow back thank you

great? is it great that a man has been arrested for no reason?

Great! for such an open letter

in the paper it said marijuana and another drug charge, I think his complaint had more to do with due process.... and the way the officer behaved.

Your wow photo is very good and I really like the post
