COME GET ME! He got what he wanted. I hope that it was his own cry for help, and that he gets the mental health treatment that he needs.
Free speech is one thing, but you still can't yell fire in a movie theater. The guy wasn't detained because he doesn't believe the 9/11 story. He
made threats, and sounded pretty disturbed. If he had done something insanely stupid, people would look at the Facebook timeline and say: Why didn't
you do something?
The guy is exercising his right to speech on the internet. If he violated anything at all its facebook terms, not anything the government has (or
should have) power over, though you could argue they are becoming more and more one and the same. As I said before, there is plenty of stuff a lot
more disturbing all over the web.
The government validated his concerns by actually coming to him and detaining him and I seriously doubt they (or you) have any serious intention or
concern for "helping" him by taking away his freedom. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that incarcerating (which is what being put in a nut
house really is, except with curtains instead of bars) the guy isn't going to help anything, in fact it may do more harm by making him even more
Interesting analogy about the fire in the movie theater. You are suggesting there isn't a fire, but as you can see by them locking this guy up, that
is anything but true. He is screaming fire (government oppression) and they showed up and started one. If you can't yell fire in a movie theater, then
tell me what is all this crap our politicians are talking about going along the lines of sacrificing freedom for security. Surely they weren't
screaming fire in a movie theater when Bush was talking about WMDs in Iraq? Or the patriot act? Tell me, how many American lives has the patriot act
saved? How many Americans have lost their life to pointless wars?
Now... how many people did Mr. Raub harm? How many crimes did he commit? None, because there really is a fire and he is the one being punished (by the
pyromaniacs) for screaming about it. Punishing random, law abiding veterans with an opinion does not stop someone from starting a fire in a movie
theater, or stop him from shooting one up.
