So long as this is allowed to continue, who's ox is being gored will only depend on who is in charge....and it's all OK, until it's your ox...then you'll have little chance to speak out (from your room in the crazy ward).

For a rarity, Fox News has useful information on what Raub was posting:

A former Marine involuntarily detained for psychiatric evaluation for posting strident anti-government messages on Facebook has received an outpouring of support from people who say authorities are trampling on his First Amendment rights.

Brandon J. Raub, 26, has been in custody since FBI, Secret Service agents and police in Virginia's Chesterfield County questioned him Thursday evening about what they said were ominous posts talking about a coming revolution. In one message earlier this month according to authorities, Raub wrote: "Sharpen my axe; I'm here to sever heads."

SNIP

Thomas said her son, who served tours as a combat engineer in Iraq and Afghanistan, is "concerned about all the wars we've experienced" and believes the U.S. government was complicit in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. One of his Facebook posts, she said, pictured the gaping hole in the Pentagon and asked "where's the plane?"

( allbolding mine)

So what we have here is a veteran who was putting out violent messages and whose mind was in flight from reality (belief in "9/11 Truth" is fleeing from reality). In the wake of the Virginia Tech, Tuscon, and Aurora mass shootings, I must defend the Virginia state police for taking Raub into custody. He his words and thoughts may well have been signs of someone breaking with reality and about to turn violent. Law enforcement was right to protect both the public and Raub by detaining him for evaluation and treatment.

Typing isn't violent any way you spin it. It's a short article, Falcon, the press release from the Civil Rights institute bringing the civil suit, you should read it.

"Without providing any explanation, levying any charges against Raub or reading him his rights, law enforcement officials handcuffed Raub and transported him to police headquarters, then to John Randolph Medical Center, where he was held against his will and beyond the time limits allowed."
...
"On August 23, Circuit Court Judge Allan Sharrett ordered Raub immediately released, noting that the government’s case was “so devoid of any factual allegations that it could not be reasonably expected to give rise to a case or controversy.”"
