claimed that he was “worried” about him, citing his recent talk about the Bible in general, Biblical prophecy in particular, and the role of the Obama regime in the larger picture detailed by prophecy.
The officers took Jason to the local hospital psychiatric ward for “evaluation.” For the next 18 hours, he was subjected to some of the most humiliating searches, probes, and questions by hospital personnel. Questions included those specific to his religious faith and what he thought about the government and Obama. Questions that were structured in such a manner that regardless of the answer, they would result in portraying him as a dangerous, gun-owning Christian zealot. All as a result of Jason expressing his non-violent, well reasoned, and articulate views on our show as well as his own. All ostensibly from the concern of one “friend” from another state and well over 100 miles away.

Should we fear being thrown in a psychiatric hospital because of our political and/or religious beliefs? What is the line anyways? Most people know not to make threats or incite riots, but how far does our Freedom of Speech really go before you have to worry about something like this happening to you? All it takes is someone who doesn't understand your beliefs, or know you that well, telling authorities that you're crazy?
All it takes is anything that might threaten the Jews who are in control of your country. Don't tell me, 'holocaust', yadda yadda yadda. Your country is owned by Jews, and is being destroyed by Jews, and THAT is the only thing that this entire site should be about, because virtually everything that is going wrong in your country is because of them.

Like I said in my post, if he insinuated in any way shape or form harm to the president, then the police acted legally. End of story. I don't care what he said because when your behind closed doors with a 'friend' you usually are the most comfortable and say the most honest of thing, so don't tell me he's innocent because COMMON SENSE would tell me he isn't.
Also he would be free, if seen as not being a threat after his evaluation. What you should be praising is that our government took a man in for a supposed threat and released him after evaluation that's the real story here.edit on 22-8-2012 by NoJoker13 because: (no reason given)

Also why does a good Bible reading man need a gun for anyway? It's against his religion to kill.

I for one love our Government and everyone who runs it.
I believe they know what's best for me and do not question their authority over me.
First let me state I am an atheist in the strictest sense; however, I do have some education in the history of the Bible and other religions for reasons of self development and comparison. I believe the passage to which you refer is more accurately translated from the original language as: "Thou shall not commit murder." If you read the Old Testament at all you will see that "killing" in fact is an activity encouraged, endorsed by, aided and sometimes attributed directly to the entity Christians now refer to as simply - God.
First they came for the socialists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for me,
and there was no one left to speak for me.

They pull you in if there is evidence of someone unstable and about to cause harm to someone.
They evaluate you, then after a few days, assuming your not window licking insane or trying to off yourself right then and there, they let you go.
Its not a bad system, and there must be precidence in order for them to act (no, you can't bakeract people whom are just annoying, its a process).
Its a good rule and many lives have been saved because of the process. If there is no problem, then there is no worry..and no, being paranoid about government and some religious nutjob won't lead you to a sanitarium unless you think you are in fact the judgement of god or whatnot.
