Detained For Facebook Post, Iraqi Veteran Ordered Released From Psychiatric Hospital

Natural News  By Mike Adams       Aug. 23, 2012

The thought police are hard at work in America, crushing anyone who expresses ideas of liberty and freedom. The latest case involves U.S. veteran Brandon Raub, who posted text on Facebook saying, among other things, that 9/11 was an inside job, that the country is being run by an evil cabal of insiders, and that the global elite are pedophiles who rape children.

Pointing to these opinion statements, the FBI, U.S. Secret Service and local law enforcement authorities in Virginia raided his home, kidnapped the 26-year-old, and stuffed him into a psychiatric hospital where he was to be detained for any number of weeks, months or even years.

Raub was not charged with a crime, was never read any Miranda rights, and was never given a hearing in front of a judge. No judge, no jury, no rights, no nothing.

He was simply targeted, kidnapped, stuffed and cuffed because of his free speech posted on Facebook.

Today, a circuit court judge has ordered the Marine veteran released from the psychiatric hospital, saying that law enforcement had no grounds to hold him.

Police in Chesterfield, Virginia claimed they “took custody” of Raub based on the powers granted to them under law regarding “Emergency custody” provisions. Yet state law only allows for a maximum hold time of four hours.

Raub was being stuffed into a mental institution for 30 days (or longer), without trial, without any rights and without even being charged with a crime.

In fact, Raub committed no crime. He hurt no one. He simply exercised his right to express his opinions about 9/11 and the corrupt government. He made no threats to anyone and broke no laws whatsoever.

Raub’s crime, apparently, was criticizing the status quo. Regardless of whether you agree or disagree with his opinions, all Americans should, at minimum, protect his right to voice his own opinions. That is the essence of free speech: to protect the speech of everyone, including those with whom you disagree.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
