Marine Locked In Mental Ward for Questioning 9/11

Former marine Brandon Raub was carted off by the Feds and locked in a psychiatric ward for his Facebook posts questioning the government’s version of 9/11.

Raub isn’t the first person who has suffered this fate.  Claire Swinney was also held in a psychiatric ward and called “delusional” for claiming government liability for 9/11.   Others have been committed for the same reason over the last decade.

Surely the Feds are right … that kind of talk is crazy, right?

Maybe.  But many of the 9/11 Commissioners themselves don’t buy what the government says about 9/11, they say that the government has covered up the state sponsorship of the 9/11 hijackers, and .

Indeed, while they obviously haven’t said that the government was involved, 9/11 Commissioners have said we need further investigation and that the American people should question 9/11.  Does that mean they should they be committed to the same psych ward which Mr. Raub and Ms. Swinney enjoyed?  Of course not. . . .

“Court ordered psychiatric detention has always been a disturbing legal policy open to abuse. But it is particularly dangerous when people can be thrown into Soviet-styled indefinite detention based solely on what authorities consider irrational political views–like conspiracy.

“I knew that William Norman Grigg would comment on this, since he is America’s foremost champion of citizen rights against the police state. “Brandon Raub, a Marine combat veteran, was abducted at his home in Chesterfield, Virginia by a thug-scrum of federal officials and local police on August 16. He wasn’t charged with a crime; instead, he was taken into schutzhaft [protective custody] on the pretext that some of his Facebook posts concerning current affairs evinced symptoms of mental derangement or terrorist inclinations.” . . .


“UPDATE: Raub was fortunate that the internet story about his illegal detention flashed around the world and alerted the Rutherford Institute which sent an attorney to represent him. They protested his arrest and the strange attempt by the state of Virginia to transfer Raub to a mental hospital clear across the state, away from the original jurisdiction. Rutherford got his case to a higher judge quickly, with dramatic and positive results:

“In an unexpected ruling handed down today by Circuit Court Judge Allan Sharrett, the judge dismissed the government’s case against Brandon Raub, the Marine who was arrested by local police and FBI agents, detained in a psychiatric ward and forced to undergo psychological evaluations based solely on the controversial nature of lines from song lyrics, political messages and virtual card games which he posted to his private Facebook page. Judge Sharrett dismissed the petition for involuntary commitment on the grounds that the petition ‘is so devoid of any factual allegations that it could not be reasonably expected to give rise to a case or controversy.’ Raub is expected to be released immediately. ‘This is a great victory for the First Amendment and the rule of law,’ said John W. Whitehead, president of The Rutherford Institute.” . . . SOURCE
