Judge Orders Former Marine Held for One MonthSubmitted by legalizeliberty on Tue, 08/21/2012 - 13:28
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.
