Detained Marine Veteran Now Released, Per Judge’s Order

HOPEWELL, Va. (WTVR) – A Hopewell circuit court judge has ordered that a Marine veteran detained over anti-government Facebook posts be released from a psychiatric hospital.

CBS 6 News’ Catie Beck said the Judge Allan Sharrett dismissed the case Thursday against Brandon Raub. The judge said the original petition for Raub’s detention contained no facts. In other words, there was no information on why Raub was being held — and the judge deemed this violated his civil liberties.

As a result, the judge ruled the government had no grounds to hold Raub.

Right thing to do, but now all "evidence & testimony" during his false imprisonment needs to be made inadmissable as any evidence ever. This is called a "shark bump", Just a test by the Gov to see if we can get away with this much without anyone seeing or protesting. It didn't work because of YOU raising the blog questions! God bless the blogs...
