The headline announced: Attorney of Former Marine Detained for Facebook Posts Tells Beck: Psychiatrist Threatened to ‘Brainwash’ My Client With Meds . (The headline writer meant “Non-Active Duty Marine.” There are no former Marines.)
This is good news. The Marine had posted a statement on Facebook that 9-11 was an inside job. The country needs a revolution, he said.
The FBI says the local police department arrested him and sent him into a psychiatric hospital. The cops said the FBI was in charge the whole time. They were merely onlookers.
He said. She said. The story is here.
A judge said that whoever arrested him had no legal case. He said the man’s civil liberties were violated.
Lawyer John Whitehead says that his Rutherford Institute plans to sue. There is a provision in Virginia law that “allows authorities to place a person in emergency custody and hold them for four hours unless a magistrate enters a temporary detention order.” The Marine was locked up for a week.
He was sentenced to 30 days.
And so it goes.
The country does need a revolution: a Ron Paul revolution.
