Anonymous Team Vendetta wasn’t about to let the marijuana arrest of Libertarian radio host and Iraq veteran Adam Kokesh go unremarked.

The hacktivist group on Tuesday temporarily took down at least two websites, the Philly Police Blog and rangerfop.com, the United States Park Ranger Lodge, in retaliation for Kokesh’s arrest.

When Kokesh was busted at a pro-marijuana rally in Philadelphia moments before 4:20 p.m. on Sunday, he had just encouraged the crowd to smoke weed and to “make it difficult for the police” to break up the rally, according to video of the incident, reports Hunter Stuart at The Huffington Post.

“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 handcuffs onto the activist. People in the crowd started chanting, “Stop the violence!”

Kokesh was charged on Monday with assaulting and impeding National Park Service Rangers, according to court documents, despite clear video evidence that he was the victim, not the instigator, of any assault which took place.

The documents note that Kokesh “had locked arms with a person who had a marijuana cigarette. As the Ranger approached the person with the cigarette, Kokesh physically blocked and obstructed the Ranger.”

The activist was also thrown out of the 2008 Republican National Convention for heckling John McCain, and was arrested for dancing at the Thomas Jefferson Memorial in Washington, D.C., during a protest of a court decision that had banned dancing at the site.

Because Kokesh is also a major organizer of a planned loaded-gun march on Washington, D.C., scheduled for July 4, some conspiracy-minded websites, including Alex Jones’ InfoWars, are speculating that his arrest is part of a plot to prevent the march from happening.
