Judge Orders Former Marine Held for One Month

Chesterfield - A former Marine who was forcibly detained by FBI agents and is being held against his will in a psychiatric institute for posting anti-government messages on Facebook has been ordered held for a month by a Virginia judge.

Brandon Raub accused the US government of carrying out the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on New York and Washington, DC. The 26-year-old Marine veteran of both the Iraq and Afghanistan wars also spoke of leading a revolution against the government. But supporters say Raub has effectively been arrested-- although federal and local authorities insist he is not under arrest-- for exercising his First Amendment rights.

" In Thee O Lord do I put my trust " ~ Psalm 31:1~

Yup

I agree. It really looks like he was trying to lure them out. He even posted his address. "Men will be coming to pick me up", exactly.

Also, most if not all of his "violent" posts, were SONG lyrics, that gives him a solid defense and makes the government look even worse once everybody figures that out.

treacherous contemptible oath-breaking judge

I propose a fundraiser to make money to sue the living daylights out of the judge for his 1st amendment rights violation. I'm good for $20. But first Brandon must be released since no crime was committed.

agreed

Brandon must be freed NOW -- he is one of us who enjoy the free speech.

Open Letter To The RNC

Update hits MSM, I expected such reasononing...

"Police — acting under a state law that allows emergency, temporary psychiatric commitments upon the recommendation of a mental health professional — took Raub to the John Randolph Medical Center in Hopewell. He was not charged with any crime."

"Dee Rybiski, an FBI spokeswoman in Richmond, said there was no Facebook snooping by her agency.

“We received quite a few complaints about what were perceived as threatening posts,” she said. “Given the circumstances with the things that have gone on in the country with some of these mass shootings, it would be horrible for law enforcement not to pay attention to complaints.”

Nothing like scaring people into keeping their mouths shut, eh Uncle Sam?

A "judge".

Upholding the "law". Right. Thugs and goons, suits and robes are just costumes.

According to his brother,

According to his brother, Brent Raub, on Facebook, they've transferred him to the VA in Salem. His words:

Big update on Brandon Raub. He's being transferred to the VA hospital in Salem, close to Roanoke. Their agenda is to hide him from the people, to complicate things for our lawyers, and to keep my family from being able to contact him. He will not be lost in the system! Spread this shit like wildfire NOW!

Blessings )o(

It sounds like he's infected

It sounds like he's infected with the 'Patriot Virus', a possibly fatal disease...Don't worry though, the government will try to cure him...

Really now, how 1984ish...

Really now, how 1984ish...

Yes

He is politically incorrect, so the government will "correct" him.

"Alas! I believe in the virtue of birds. And it only takes a feather for me to die laughing."

"We received quite a few complaints about what were perceived as threatening posts," she said. "Given the circumstances with the things that have gone on in the country with some of these mass shootings, it would be horrible for law enforcement not to pay attention to complaints.""

Then, I'm quite sure that the arresting agencies can provide PROOF and NAMES of those complainants in a COURT of law, yes? YES!

Furthermore, preemptive detention is just a convenient RUSE and euphemism for vainly attempting to justify illegal KIDNAPPING by the state. This particular judge in Virginia needs to be identified, prosecuted in a court *, convicted, and then disbarred from practicing law for life.

* Unfortunately, Raub isn't being afforded the same constitutional respect.

Gradual boiling of the frog...

We are the frog.

Well, he must have ODD

Well, he must have ODD (Oppositional Defiant Disorder) or something similar. Questioning the government (known liars) is now classified as a mental disorder.

There is a drug for that! I wonder why they don't just lobotomize people at birth and save us all the trouble.

Bradley Manning is rotting in jail for over 800 days without a trial -- these days exposing war crimes etc is a crime and criminals receive Nobel Peace Prize's...
