Developing story, need ATS help on this-

Photo from his FB page:




YOUTUBE Description:

This video was taken 8.16.12 around 7:30 pm. This is the video of a fellow patriot, Brandon J Raub, being "arrested" and taken away by Chesterfield County Virginia Police Department. They showed up inquiring his postings on facebook, and then they just took him.


A bit more in this video:


Description:

Former Marine Raub Brandon was taken by FBI and Secret Service last night (8/15/12) for his patriotic Facebook Posts. Now being held in mental hospital...DEVELOPING STORY!! SHARE EVERYWHERE! YOU ARE NEXT


Well I am certainly not doubting the "YOU ARE NEXT" part. Anyway, perhaps someone with a facebook account can track this down and add something to this story...WHAT did he say on FB that would warrant the feds to come in and seize him??? What happened to his 4th Amendment rights?

One apparent FB post:

I love freedom, courage, and love, and 'faithfulness." I love America and the principles that this nation was founded on: Justice and Freedom are powerful ideas, and they are the only basis for a just government. I created this profile, my second, as stand against facebook's censoring of my previous profile. My original profile is Brandon J Raub. I am choosing not to use it until there is a government that operates out of justice.


That sound like a threat to you?

He was arrested for "Patriotic" posts? Come on.

I'd bet dollars to donuts his "patriotism" involved threatening the life of our President, or other politicians.

One man's illegal terroristic threats are another man's patriotism.

Why do people post stupid and sometimes incriminating crap on FB and Twitter?

Seems probable and with the new bills declaring anyone can be arrested and detained without just cause because there is a belief he is a threat to national security....No one is safe, not even the Vets

Odd how this is reported on various sites, yet not one of them can produce these "patriotic" posts.

I smell B.S.

I was wondering the same thing, but there is a federal judicial injunction against that part of NDAA.

www.abovetopsecret.com...

One which the Obama administration refuses to assure they are complying with.

Let's not make hasty judgements here, and let's figure this out...

EDIT:
www.facebook.com...

says he works at the Ron Paul Revolution ??

and also:
He posted-

The Revolution is about to start.

Chesterfield police will find any reason to arrest someone, even if they have to make one.
We call it Arresterfield, here in Richmond.

Amazing how the first two posters after the OP put up their opinions 3 min. after the post went up, and didn't even take the time to watch the videos!!!!


Anyhow, welcome to the NDAA!!! So much for the 1st amendment eh!

Looking forward to more info to come out on this one for sure!!!

To those talking about 'stupid incriminating' or otherwise wrongful statements, it was legal to do so not so long ago. That 1st Amendment stuff.

Well I don't see any specific, credible threat so far, anyway...

Hopefully more info will come to light.

But what if they are specifically going to go after former military and round them up first, before taking the guns? They know that former military, with all that training, are going to present the biggest threat. I don't like this one bit.

Oh wait...OMG...


This is the picture of the Pentagon, right after our leaders shot a missle into it.

He's a 9/11 truther it appears.

Check this profile of his instead, he posted some things that could be considered inflammatory of the government on that one.

Just was on his Facebook page... And well yeah, I think it's sort of odd that he posted on Tuesday:

www.facebook.com...

"The Revolution will come for me. Men will be at my door soon to pick me up to lead it.
"

Then proceeded to post his home address (which I will not post).

Then he was arrested...

Proceeding posts included Pentagon 9/11 photos, firefighters discussing explosives in the world trade buildings, American Civil War possibilities... He posts a ton of stuff, that would usually be the norm on ATS. On Facebook though... I have no idea why anyone would post such things on facebook...

I certainly hope that is not the case. If it is, i doubt his brother in arms would stand for it. Word travels quickly, if this was something as obvious as a ploy to take away trained individuals, there would be more organized resistance.

If you can view his page. I'd highly suggest someone goes through and Screen caps now.

Before it's deleted.

So uhh everyone still has their facebook accounts right?




This is awful, how can you be arrested for posting something online?
It's not even like he was going out of his way to bully someone...


America, what has become of us?


Can't speak your mind online, but we are cool with illegal wars. cheah.

There has simply got to be more to this story than reported.. there is absolutely no way the FBI and secret service are going to apprehend him for what was shown in op's post..

The "The Revolution will come for me. Men will be at my door soon to pick me up to lead it. " post is certainly suspicious and I bet there is more to this than we know.. whether he was buying weapons or was suspected of preparing some kind of attack... those are things we do not know.

I think it's silly to simply assume the arrested him for facebook posts alone..

All those automatically assuming and making excuses had better think about just how "free" they are.

The US government has made it a criminal offense to be critical of the US government. You have no freedom of opinion or expression when it comes to being dissatisfied with your government.

You did this to yourselves.

I would hope, otherwise I think most of us might be on the next round up list.
