Revolution PAC Demands Court Convene Special Grand Jury & Commonwealth Attorney Bring Prosecutions In Raub Case
Demands Judge Convene A Special Grand Jury and that Commonwealth Attorney Prosecute
Government Agents and Officials Involved in Brandon J. Raub Kidnapping and “Disappearing”
Washington, DC—Today, Revolution PAC chairman Lawrence Hunter sent letters to Hopewell, VA Circuit Court Judge W. Allan Sharrett and Commonwealth Attorney for Chesterfield County William W. Davenport demanding that the government kidnapping and “disappearing” of Brandon J. Raub into psychiatric facilities be thoroughly investigated, laid before a Grand Jury and indictments brought against any and all government agents and officials involved.
In his letter to Davenport, Hunter said, in part:
In his letter to Sharrett, Hunter said, in part:
“As the law-enforcement officer of the Commonwealth of Virginia for Chesterfield County responsible for prosecuting crimes, you are compelled to investigate and bring to justice all individuals involved in these criminal acts. At a minimum, you must present this case to the Grand Jury for its consideration. . . you must not put Virginia and federal officials above the law by exempting them from responsibility under any abstract claim of so-called “sovereign immunity.” Nor may you shield the criminal actions of public officials behind a civil-commitment process that has been abused to circumvent constitutional rights and avoid due process of law. In America, all people are created equal under the law, including local, state and federal officials, and all must be held to account equally before the law.”
The entire letters are available online:
“The Orwellian actions conceived in conspiracy among Virginia and Federal agents and officials sometime before August 16 and then unleashed on Mr. Raub during the following week with Gestapo-like tactics, employed against him and doing violence to his person to carry out this conspiracy by a combined Virginia-Federal strike force for no alleged criminal or wrongful act or any demonstration of mental deficiency were so outrageous, so obviously in violation of Virginia law and so contrary to the precepts of American and Virginian justice that the ramifications of these lawless acts go far beyond the harm done to Mr. Raub; they violate the rule of law, disparage due process, make a mockery of individual rights and undermine the constitutional foundations of the United States of America and the Commonwealth of Virginia.
“The public has a direct and separate interest in these incidents apart from Mr. Raub’s. In Virginia and the United States, all individuals are created equal under the law, and every individual must be held to the same standards of justice whether they are private citizens or government officials. No special treatment or privilege under the law for government officials is consistent with the American and Virginian justice and equal protection guarantees. All individuals must stand before the bar of justice on equal terms, and only a Special Grand Jury can ensure that the wrongful acts perpetrated against Mr. Raub are objectively investigated and properly considered for indictment.”
