RT presenter choked by police

RT presenter choked by police
An RT America television host Adam Kokesh was violently slammed and choked by police who arrested the host after he took part in a flash-mob at the publicly-funded Jefferson Memorial.

On May 28 Adam and other activists were arrested seconds after they started silently dancing in what they say was a celebration of the first amendment's champion. The police officers slammed some of them; others were handcuffed and thrown to the ground in what seems to be a clear violation of their right to free-expression. A video was captured of Adam Kokesh being body slammed and placed in a chokehold for his dancing crime. Watch Adam comment on the incident

Adam is the host of RT America’s Adam vs. The Man program.
