This kind of arrest and detention contradicts the rule of law

BUT you all may want to read what he wrote over the last couple weeks on his facebook page before you comment, because it's very different than what is talked about and written in the above videos. VERY different: http://www.facebook.com/brandon.raub?sk=wall

He clearly was set on the idea of being detained by the feds for his facebook posts, and I don't mean that as a figure of speech, like "he was asking for it". No, that was his literal purpose and I would even say his stated goal. He seems a bit delusional and seems to think his arrest will spark a revolution in which he will be the leader.

His whole page is designed to set off red flags. Check this post from last year "Fuck the New World Order. I'm bringing it down." Somewhat innocuous, until you read his mysterious comment posted this very week, which only says "Soon". Then there's some stuff about a secret Bush castle in Colorado, which he says is set aside for raping and sacrificing children. And 9/11 stuff, of course. Then in August a bunch of oddly urgent calls to arms. Then this week he adds that "soon" comment to his old post, and posts a shitstorm of cray-cray with such hits as "This is the part where I tell Generals, training our young men to fight Americans, I am coming for you. The Veterans will be with me." and who can forget "I'm starting the Revolution. I'm done waiting." and that timeless treasure "Your government evil. It is as simple as that. And the calvary is coming." or maybe "The people responsible for posioning the America people from the sky will be held accountable. And there is going to be justice."

Then by around aug 12th, cranks it up a notch with a comment probably designed to make him look suicidal "Death is nothing, but to live defeated and inglorious is to die daily." and adds "Sharpen up my axe; I'm here to sever heads." Then, perhaps after being annoyed that the feds haven't picked him up yet, he tips his hand a bit and openly suggests that his comments are for their benefit, with "You should understand that many of the things I have said here are for the world to see." and "The Revolution will come for me. Men will be at my door soon to pick me up to lead it. ;)" after that last post, he even goes so far as to post his address so they don't have trouble finding him, so that he can become more powerful than they can possibly imagine and lead us all to the promised land.

So, by all means do point out the typically unlawful actions of the "law" enforcement community and their questionable collaboration with the mental health industry, but you might not want to use equivocal language or phrase your objections in a way that feed this guy's delusions of grandeur while you do it, like these videos do.
