Detroit SWAT forcibly removes child from home because parent wouldn't give un-necessary medication

This is a very twisted story.

A disabled middle school-age girl in Detroit wanted to attend school, so the child's mother took her for the required immunizations. The girl had some reactions to the immunizations, and a very bizzare chain of events occurred.

From the article;

“....She began acting out of character, being irritated, having facial grimaces that have been associated with immunizations,” Maryanne Godboldo sought help from the Children’s Center, an organization claiming to help families with at-risk children.

Godboldo told relatives the medications ordered by the doctor worsened symptoms, including behavioral problems.

When Godboldo refused to give her child the prescribed medication, Child Protective Services became involved. CPS obtained a warrant to remove the girl, but Maryanne reportedly refused to surrender the child to the state...."

That's when Big Brother took over.

And according to this article, the child didn't even have an "emergency need" for the medication to begin with.

What a complete mismanagement of authority.

It is looking more and more like parents' rights are being further and further challenged.
