Update: Ex-Marine Brandon J. Raub Being Held in a Psych Ward

Posted: August 24, 2012 in Junkyard, Police State

Looks like a Virginia judge ordered the release of Brandon J. Raub who was detained for psychiatric evaluation because of his conspiracy-minded, anti-government Facebook posts. Following a one-hour hearing, Prince George County Circuit Judge W. Allan Sharrett declared that the petition seeking to commit Raub for a month “is so devoid of any factual allegations that it could not be reasonably expected to give rise to a case or controversy.” From the article:

Prince George County Circuit Judge W. Allan Sharrett said at the end of a one-hour hearing that the involuntary commitment order issued by a magistrate against Brandon J. Raub was invalid because it contained no allegation or basis to hold him, according to the head of a civil liberties organization that represented the 26-year-old veteran.
