Decorated War Veteran (Iraq and Afghanistan) and former Marine, Brandon Raub, of Richmond Virginia was arrested last night by authorities. Authorites claimed that Raub made “Terroristic” comments on his Facebook Page. The unconstitutional arrest occurred last night at approximately 7:30 pm at the combat veteran’s home.
The following video was shot with a cell phone camera, by Raub’s brother, Who began filming when he arrived at the scene of Brandon’s “Capture”.
On “The Josh Tolley Show”, a radio show, his mother Kathleen Thomas, stated he was questioned about his Facebook posts. Kathleen states that she was contacted by phone by FBI agent Sherry Grainger and was told that her son Brandon Raub was arrested for assault, resisting arrest… later agent Grainger said that the threats made by Raub was “terrorist in nature” (see videos below)

I ask that you pray for our country and my son Brandon Raub. He has been arrested by the FBI and Secret Service for his CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT to express his FREEDOM OF SPEECH on Facebook.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
He is a decorated US MARINE that served in 2 wars for our country.
He is being held for psychiatric evaluation to see if he is “fit for society” they will not tell me where he is and they will not return my phone calls.
I know what they are trying to do, and they will not win. They will try to SLAP PTSD on him, they will say he is unstable. THIS IS COMPLETE BULLSHIT!
Is this what it comes to? Is this MY AMERICA I grew up in? Where are those that are weary of the deliberate stripping and tearing down of our US CONSTITUTION! Were are those that will stand and rise and say “enough is enough” we want out country back. Where are those that adhere, embrace and stand up for the US CONSTITUTION.
I will not be silent, I will not PASSIVELY stand back and do nothing. I will hold the Constitution high and remind our government of our rights. I will lift it up to my Father in heaven and cry GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH!
I AM PROUD OF MY SON. He his one of the most logical, clear-minded, stable, LOVER OF GOD and COUNTRY men that I know.
HE is a Patriot whose time has come. Wake up America! Wake UP

She later informed supporters of this update:
I was at the Chesterfield police dept inquiring on where my son was. I do have a video of the FBI and Chesterfield police dept taking my son away.
They told me last night, that yes, he is here and being “evaluated”. There was nothing I could do they said, but “await his phone call”.
No one has called, so I began to call. Called the chesterfield police jail and they told me that he was not there and they have NO RECORD of him being processed there or booked for any crime.
They gave me the number to the FBI which I already had because Agent Sherry Granger 804-241-4770 Called me upon his “arrest” and told me my son was being “evaluated” as a “potential terrorist” for his comments on face book AND that he was arrested by the Chesterfield Police Department.
So I called her back this morning since no one seems to know where my son is and she did not speak to me but a representative of the FBI told me he was taken to a Psychiatric Facility called Popluar Springs in Petersburg Va. So I called Popluar Springs and they have no record of his admittance.
How would you like this to happen to your child just because he exercised his constitutional right of FREE SPEECH?
I will be following all this the best I can, and will post updates on the frightening situation. People, let’s be clear, our country is in danger. The danger is not on some far off land, it’s right here in AmeriKa.
Please keep Brandon and his family in your prayers.
