As of this article, the above was his last public Facebook post – although there could be more that are not open to the public.

The following video is from the Josh Tolley Channel:

Former Marine Raub Brandon was taken by FBI and Secret Service last night (8/15/12) for his patriotic Facebook Posts. Now being held in mental hospital.

Video of Brandon Raub as he is arrested by Chesterfield County, Virginia Police Department:

This video was taken 8.16.12 around 7:30 pm. This is the video of a fellow patriot, Brandon J Raub, being “arrested” and taken away by Chesterfield County Virginia Police Department. They showed up inquiring his postings on facebook, and then they just took him.

Is this one example of the Patriot Act in action? When you say something online that sounds a little nuts and share it with the Public, is it reasonable to assume you may be arrested? Or did Raub’s Facebook updates look as if he might be mentally unwell? [According to Tolley’s description in the first video, Raub is being held in a mental hospital.]


* Update August 18, 2012 – The Facebook page I reference above may have been sanitized.

Two comments of note on YouTube in Response to the Josh Tolley Video:

  1. Comment 1: “I love all the people who are looking at his one (since sanitized by friends and family) FAcebook page and reacting in outrage out of your ignorance, while his other page is VERY clearly the page o a severely mentally disturbed man. His was a lonely child looking for attention, and he got it. This is not aman that has been missed by society since he was arrested. IT isn’t as if he was contributing in any way.”
  2. Comment 2: “she never read tha comments he was adding to his fb i went and checkd it out and they were deleted all he had on there were videos and something from the 10th so if they were deleted it must of been something good all of u are reacting before knowing what happened for sure since they were deleted maybe he did something that should get somebody arrested”

  1. Well if that’s all they brought him in for then all of us are certainly somewhere on their list. Of course, he’s a marine, making comments more damaging for the system.

  2. Canadian First Nations were identified as possible domestic terrorists by Canadian law enforcement. And we all know the history of AIM and cointelpro.
