A Virginia veteran who was arrested because of his writings on Facebook has been ordered released by a judge.

CBS 6 News’ Catie Beck said the judge dismissed the case Thursday against Brandon Raub. The judge said the original petition for Raub’s detention contained no facts. In other words, there was no information on why Raub was being held — and the judge deemed this violated his civil liberties. As a result, the judge ruled law enforcement has no grounds to hold Raub.

If I was this Marine, I sue everyone I could find for false arrest and a violation of his First Amendment rights.
