A former marine Brandon Raub was detained and put into a psychiatric ward by the FBI and Secret Service for posting criticisms against the US government.
Some of his criticisms were against the 9/11 investigation and an overall dislike of how personal liberties are suppressed. He spoke of a peoples revolution against “the powers that be,” something we here condone completely.
According to the FBI/Secret Service that detained Brandon Raub these writings of revolution were “terroristic” and were results of PTSD. Apparently the only way to treat the PTSD was to dump the Iraq veteran in a mental house. Oh America how you’ve become so free!
Here’s a video recorded by Kathleen Thomas (Raub’s mother) of the arrest:
According to Ms. Thomas Raub was not read his rights during arrest and what he’s charged with has not been clarified. Not only that Raub’s freedom to privacy has been violated through his Facebook profile being tracked by government agents.
Raub is quoted as saying, “I really love America, and I think that idea that you can be detained and sent somewhere without due process and a lawyer … is crazy.”
Indeed it’s a dark time for America. Our rights being violated, veterans being locked up in metal facilities and freedom of speech being stitched shut by the powers that be. Hopefully all will turn out well for Raub, we’ll watch this story continue.
