This is another one of those articles where I suggest you stop reading now if you have a heart condition.
You will be pissed.
Detroit mother Maryanne Godboldo faces multiple felony charges and is 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.
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.
Police claimed Godboldo discharged a firearm in her apartment during the stand-off and that is when the SWAT team was called in.
Obviously this requires an armed invasion force to lay siege to the woman’s home (at my expense, of course).
I’m personally glad such a dangerous and evil woman is behind bars right now. Lord knows what she might have done to her child without the government there to put a stop to her nonsense.
She might have fed her child cookies and milk, along with providing hugs and kisses. Clearly this is something that can not be allowed to occur.
