The family under pressure and attacked for it's individual beliefs.

The saga of Maryanne Godboldo, a mother who tried to protect her 15-year-old daughter from removal by the state in March of 2011 resulting in a 10-hour stand-off, has come to an end.
Despite attempts by the Wayne County Prosecutors Office to revive charges against Godboldo, a court upheld dismissal of the charges Friday, online Wayne County Circuit Court records show.
It's unclear if the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office will pursue another appeal.
Godboldo, 59, faced charges of discharging a weapon in a building, felonious assault, assaulting or obstructing an officer and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony that were dismissed because the Wayne County District Court ruled they were based on evidence obtained during an illegal search.
The encounter leading to the charges occurred in 2011 after Godboldo refused to administer the state-ordered antipsychotic drug Risperidone to her daughter Ariana. Due to her refusal, a Wayne County family court judge ordered Ariana be removed from her mother's care.
Employees from the Michigan Department of Human Services arrived at Godboldo's Detroit home with police assistance, used a crow bar to enter when she denied entry and attempted to kick in the locked door of a room where Godboldo and her daughter were hiding.
While police were attempting to enter the room there was a loud bang, which was later revealed to be caused by gunfire.
A 10-hour "barricaded gunman" situation commenced, complete with military vehicles.
When it was resolved, Godbolbo was arrested and charged; Ariana was taken into custody by Child Protective Services and returned to her mother weeks later.
The case sparked a debate among those who feel the government overstepped its bounds by forcing medicine upon the teen and resulted in an outcry of support for Godboldo in the wake of the charges.
There was a sense among supporters that Goldboldo was justified in her response to police force in removing her child. For them, it became an issue more about parental rights than Goldboldo's allegedly criminal response.
“In the end, it is a basic human right for parents to choose if they want to medicate their children," said Goldboldo's attorney, Allison Folmar, according to this April 2013 story on the Citizens Commission on Human Rights International website. "When the state steps in and says ‘hey, mom and dad, we know what’s better for your child,’ that’s wrong. There are too many of these cases where the state believes it knows more than the parents. It isn’t good for the kids, it isn’t good for the parents and it is ripping families apart.”
A review of the removal order for Ariana revealed a number of errors: The line for the agency that was to execute the order was left blank; there was no date; and it did not state whether other reasonable efforts to remove Ariana had been made.
On Aug. 1, 2011 the Wayne County Circuit Court Family Division reviewed the validity of the order. It could not be determined if the seal on the document was one used by the county and a juvenile court supervisor said probation officers would use stamps on protective orders "without judicial input," according to the appeal ruling.
When the case came before the Wayne County District Court Aug. 29, 2011, the judge dismissed the case and charges for lack of evidence and violation of 4th Amendment rights related to Constitutional searches, calling the removal document "grossly inadequate, incorrect" and the mistakes on it "numerous."
The appeals court found that whether or not the removal order was adequate, once the crime of firing a gun in a building was committed, the subsequent police action and search could be justified.
The court said, although citizens have the right to protect themselves against illegal police action, they must believe they are in imminent danger.
I would have to say; if someone tries to break down your door, trying to take your child, in order to administer the antipsychotic drug Risperidonegive, have military style vehicles in front of your house, guns all over the place, one might come to a conclusion, imminent danger is a possibility???

The state and it's social organisations like child protection or C.A.S. have dictated to parents too many political correct policies, or in this case, forcing strong drugs upon a child, which contradicts the value of the traditional family in order to re-organise society according to their beliefs, forgetting not all free people think the same, neither is it possible to make them and in the end, a parent in the first and last word in raising kids not the state..
A society which identifying all parents as abusers and does not respect the rights of the family to raise their children, free of outside intervention, cannot survive.

“Be human! The family is the centre 
and heart of the civilization of love.”
John Paul II
