Interview with motherChesterfield Marine veteran to remain detained over Facebook posts
HOPEWELL, Va. (WTVR) – Protestors gathered outside John Randolph Medical Center where a Marine veteran is detained after allegedly making some questionable Facebook posts.
CBS 6 News’ Catie Beck confirmed with attorneys from the Rutherford Institute, who represented 26-year-old Brandon Raub during a Monday morning hearing, that he will remain in custody.
Two family members were also allowed to attend the hearing, but directed Beck to the lawyers, who said they were preparing a statement.
Monday afternnoon, Chesterfield Police’s Col. Thierry Dupuis issued a statement about Raub’s detention after receiving numerous media inquiries.
Dupuis said Chesterfield officers thought Raub needed further evaluation after they talked with him. Crisis workers advised cops to bring Raub in for an evaluation.
Police said Raub, who was placed in handcuffs after resisting officers’ attempts to take him into custody, was taken for an evaluation in accordance with Virginia State Code § 37.2-808 Emergency custody. [BONUS: Read Chesterfield police's complete statement on Raub]
Protestors said they are upset because Raub was was led away from his house in handcuffs around 7:30 p.m. Thursday without ever being charged – and they feel that is a violation of his First Amendment rights. [RELATED: Chesterfield man, Marine veteran, detained over Facebook posts]
A former Marine who served two tours in Afghanistan with Raub told Beck that he is a courageous and patriotic young man with showed no signs of posttraumatic stress disorder. Additionally, the man said he believes a mental evaluation would find Raub sane — and not someone who is capable of a terroristic threat.
Video of Raub’s detention, posted Friday afternoon, has amassed almost 107,000 views on YouTube as of 12:30 p.m. Monday. The video has enlisted video responses as well. A Facebook group has been started in support of Brandon Raub, and currently has over 3,000 members. http://wtvr.com/2012/08/20/hearing-b...acebook-posts/

...fiat currency and wars go together. One war leads to massive inflation which leads to diverted capital and re-directed capital, which leads to another, and continues the cycle. Let me explain: Historically you have not had one without the other for the entire course of human history.
A Federal Reserve type banking system makes it much easier for governments to go to war, because you don’t have to take out loans from other governments (selling treasury bonds) or raise taxes on your citizens.
They have a magic credit card. Wars with a central bank basically result in a massive increase in available capital which creates one thing: inflation.
Here is the key: War diverts capital that would have been invested in something like an automobile factory, refrigerator factory, for example, and puts it into a sector of the economy that it wouldn’t have normally been in. That capital comes from somewhere. Instead of the free market dictating the best place for that capital and investment, it’s redirected because of the war.
A federal reserve leads to war, which leads to a distortion of the free market. A fed leads to another war which leads to more of the economy being diverted from where it would normally be doing the most efficient and profitable things. A bigger portion of nationals capital and production is diverted for war purposes. And the trend continues.
A couple of things are happening simultaneously:
1) Peoples purchasing power is being robbed. Obviously.
2) A larger percentage of the nations industrial capacity is being diverted from its natural free state to fund the wars.
3) The fed is able to flush the system with more paper dollars. The three feed into one another, until people begin to believe the lie that war is good for the economy. It’s a lie. It’s good for the politically well connected, the banks and corporations who are in position to profit from the war. If war was so good for the economy, why wouldn’t we just do away with bombing other nations and just build buildings in mojave desert.
That way we could always have jobs for people to build the buildings and jobs for people to build the bombs and tanks we use to blow them up.
The truth is all that capital must come from somewhere. In order to build a tank, you have to not build or upgrade a refrigerator or a radio. You have to take from someone or a certain area of the economy and divert the free market to fund war.
There is a solution to all of this: Free and Sound Money and De-Regulating our Industry http://dont-tread-on.me/?p=21770
