Breaking: Raub’s Lawyer Says Psychiatrist Threatened to "Brainwash" Brandon


Thursday, August 23rd, 2012

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 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 law enforcement has 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.

I saw the tail end of CNN briefly mentioning Brandon Raub, right before they cut to something else.  Other than that, the MSM have served up crickets.  On an issue as important as this?  SMH.

I strongly feel that our voices via social networking did the job that the media was suppose to do.

I'm proud of Brandon Raub.  And I'm proud of everyone that expressed support for him, and worked to shine a light on this issue.  I hope he has already been released.  And I hope the lawsuit to follow, on his part, is successful.

yep! we win!
