Marine veteran detained over Facebook posts
Interesting story of an ex-Marine who was arrested for his Facebook comments. Technially, he was not arrested but "detained". Under the NDAA the government now has the power to "detain" a citizen indefinably without a trial.
HOPEWELL, Va. (WTVR) – Protestors gathered outside John Randolph Medical Center where a Marine veteran is detained after allegedly making some questionable Facebook posts.
CBS 6 News’ Catie Beck confirmed with attorneys from the Rutherford Institute, who represented 26-year-old Brandon Raub during a Monday morning hearing, that he will remain in custody.
Here is his Facebook page. Strangely, the FBI has not yet removed his page.
Video his non-arrest:
