Last week a judge found that there was no legal basis to hold Brandon Raub in a psychiatric ward against his will. This after the Twenty-six year old Raub was taken away by authorities for controversial posts to his Facebook page. He was arrested outside his Virginia home on August 16 and was confused asking the authorities about what crime he committed. The FBI found his posts to be anti-American and "terrorist in nature." John Whitehead, the marine's attorney joins RT's Liz Wahl to discuss what does this case mean for freedom of speech in the US.
