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.

Yes, good news, but unreported news. NY and LA times, CNN did not cover story at all. CNN only had an unvetted Ireport.

A very subtle form of attack. Our local Occupy facebook page has been abnormally quiet since I posted this article.

Yes..thanks to us and other social media keeping it visible. It is no wonder why 'they' want full control of the internet. Stay vigilant and vocal about the internet.
