(RussiaToday) – A federal judge has ordered the release of Brandon Raub who was detained under Nazi style indefinite psychiatric detention for controversial Facebook posts.
Last Thursday, a US Marine was detained by the FBI and local authorities for posting controversial anti-government political comments on the social media site Facebook.
Although 26 year-old Brandon Raubwas detained and forced to undergo a psychiatric evaluation, he was not charged with any criminal misconduct, a hallmark of the NAZI gestapo tactic of indefinite psychiatric detention to crush political dissent.
John Whitehead, a constitutional attorney representing Raub, joins RT to discuss how the US government violated his client’s first amendment rights.
