Marine won’t quit fight over forced mental lockup #freespeech

A decorated Marine who didn’t back down during his military career is taking the same stance in a fight with authorities over his forced, and unjustified, stay in a mental hospital.Brandon Raub was seized by a swarm of Secret Service, FBI and local police and involuntarily locked up in a mental institution for a week after “posting controversial song lyrics and political views critical of the government on his Facebook page,” according to officials with the Rutherford Institute, who have pursued a lawsuit on his behalf.They have appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court after lower courts said it was “far-fetched” that there would be concerns over the government suppression of Raub’s speech.
