Former Marine Wins Release from Psychiatric Care Over Facebook Message
A judge ruled Thursday that authorities must release from a psychiatric hospital a former Marine under FBI investigation for posting anti-government messages on Facebook, the Washington Times reports.
Prince George County Circuit Judge W. Allan Sharrett ordered the release of Brandon Raub because there was not sufficient basis to hold him.
Raub, who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, came under FBI investigation after people reported he wrote anti-government messages on Facebook, according to the Washington Post.
Family and supporters said the FBI and magistrate trampled his First Amendment Rights.
