BREAKING: Judge Orders RELEASE of Detained Marine Veteran Brandon Raub

from 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.

Beck said the judge is in the process of writing an order for Raub’s release. He is expected to be released from a the hospital in Salem, Virginia Thursday afternoon.

The decorated U.S. Marine veteran was questioned by FBI agents about his Facebook postings and then hauled away from his Chesterfield County home in handcuffs last Thursday.

    For many years in this country, judges were the guardians of individual liberty. There is such a BS tsunami going on these days that we often lose sight of this vital function of the judiciary. Well, guess what, folks? There are still some judges out there who actually understand and respect the US Constitution. BRAVO for Judge Beck. Too bad that he isn’t serving on the US Supreme Court. They could use some fresh blood.

    Hmmm… imprisoned against his will without legal authorization to do so. Sounds like one helluva lawsuit coming up. I hope that he sues the bastards responsible for this within an inch of their miserable little lives, costs them their jobs, and takes every single financial asset they own. I don’t mean their departments or the government but those actually responsible – personally. Illegal behavior of this kind needs and deserves to be stomped on – hard. If Judge Beck isn’t too busy, maybe he could hear the case? :-D
