SWAT Team Sent In to Confiscate 13-Year-Old Over Unneeded Medication

Tax Day is a good time for a reminder that when our bureaucrat slave masters ask us to do something, they are telling us to do it. If we refuse, the velvet glove comes off, and the brutal fist that is government comes down on our faces full force:

Detroit mother Maryanne Godboldo faces multiple felony charges and [was] being held on $500,000 bond after a 10-hour standoff with a heavily armed police SWAT team. Godboldo was protecting her 13-year-old daughter from unnecessary medication ordered by the state.
Godboldo's daughter was born with a defective foot that required amputation of her leg below the knee, which led to Maryanne becoming a stay-at-home mother after her birth, according to Health Impact News Daily.
Despite her handicap, the child swam, sang, danced and played the piano. However, as the home schooled girl approached middle school age, she apparently wanted to start attending public school, and therefore had to "catch up" on immunizations the state insists are required under color of law.
SWAT police descend on mother's apartment, reportedly using a tank.
According to her aunt, Penny Godboldo, the girl suffered an adverse reaction to the immunizations. "She began acting out of character, being irritated, having facial grimaces that have been associated with immunizations," Penny told the Detroit News.
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.

Next thing you know:


So pay every penny of your taxes today, and be thankful that even if 99¢ of every dollar is wasted on unproductive activities forbidden to the federal government by the 10th Amendment, at least they won't send in a paramilitary squad to kick down your door, so long as you're compliant.

By the way, now that authorities have confiscated Godboldo's daughter, they've determined that there's no immediate need for the psychotropic meds anyway. But there's always a need to do as you're told.
