Mom Faces Down SWAT Team and MRAP for Refusing to Give Daughter Deadly Antipsychotic Drug

mom_stands_up_to_SWATBy Matt Agorist

Suicide, birth defects, heart problems, hostility, violence, aggression, hallucinations, self-harm, delusional thinking, homicidal ideation, and death are just a few of the side effects caused by psychiatric medication.

There have been 150 studies in seventeen countries on antidepressant-induced side effects. There have been 134 drug regulatory agency warnings from eleven countries and the EU warning about the dangerous side effects of antidepressants.

Despite this deadly laundry list of potential reactions to these medications, the use of antidepressants and antipsychotics has skyrocketed by 400% since 1988.

Currently, 11 percent of all Americans 12 years of age and over take antidepressant medication, this is a higher rate than all other countries in the world.

While the skyrocketing use of psychiatric drugs in adults is certainly worrisome, the exponential increase of use in children is downright scary.

children_antidepressantsThe following information is the most accurate and documented data available on psychiatric drug usage in the United States. The information is from IMS Health, a company that provides information, services and technology for the healthcare industry. It is the largest vendor of U.S. physician prescribing data. The following data was taken from IMS Health Vector One National database Year 2013, Extracted April 2014.

The numbers are startling.

According to Dr. Allen Frances, author of Saving Normalone of the reasons we are seeing such a steep incline in American children being prescribed these drugs is that primary care physicians, not psychiatrists, are doling our these drugs like candy. According to Dr. Frances, the primary care doctor is not nearly as qualified to prescribe these drugs, and most of them are doing so based on the information given to them by entirely unqualified pharmaceutical sales reps.

Even more disturbing than the growing trend in psychiatric drug use is the fact that the State will remove children from their parents for refusing to give these dangerous and untested drugs to their kids.

Last week, a Detroit mother, Maryanne Godboldo, was the subject of her 5th appeal by the prosecutor’s office for the ‘crime’ of preventing her child from being forced to take a psychiatric medicine.

Godboldo made international headlines in 2011 when she refused to administer a dangerous psychiatric drug to her daughter, resulting in Child Protective Services (CPS) assaulting her civil and human rights to the extent that many could not believe this could occur in America. The truth is any parent could be targeted by the mental health system via CPS and lose their rights as a parent, as reported by the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR).

On February 17, 2010, Maryanne Godboldo was told to put her daughter Ariana on the antipsychotic drug Risperdal.

There have been 39 studies in eight countries on Risperdal highlighting the horrid side-effects of this drug. (United States, Denmark, United Kingdom, Spain, Canada, New Zealand, Japan and Italy). These include the following (note that some studies cite more than one side-effect, so the list below may not be equal to the total number of studies):

8 studies on Risperdal causing death or increased risk of death
7 studies on Risperdal causing weight gain
4 studies on Risperdal causing heart problems
3 studies on Risperdal causing diabetes
3 studies on Risperdal causing blood disorders
2 studies on Risperdal causing sleep problems
2 studies on Risperdal causing stroke
2 studies on Risperdal showing lack of efficacy
2 studies on Risperdal causing Parkinson’s Disease
1 study on Risperdal causing cognitive decline
1 study on Risperdal causing sexual dysfunction
1 study on Risperdal causing Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome (a life-threatening neurological disorder)
1 study on Risperdal causing violence

After watching her daughter experience some of these severe side-effects from the drug, she consulted another doctor and they slowly weaned her off of it.

When social services found out that Maryanne had taken her daughter off the drug, they took legal and physical action to force her hand. On March 24, 2011, social services, accompanied by the Detroit Police SWAT team and an illegal order, forcibly entered Maryanne’s home to remove Ariana, citing Maryanne’s refusal to give her Risperdal.

CCHR explains what happened next.

  • A 10-hour standoff ensued between Maryanne and the Detroit Police’s “Special Response Team.”
  • Maryanne made phone calls to the leaders of the Detroit community to help her in the effort to save her child.
  • On March 25, 2011, in the early morning hours, Maryanne agreed to turn over her daughter only after the police and CPS assured her that Ariana would be placed in the custody of Maryanne’s sister, Penny Godboldo and would NOT be drugged. This was the agreement between Maryanne, the police and CPS.
  • Social services lied to Maryanne: They placed Ariana at the Hawthorn Center, a state-run juvenile psychiatric facility.
  • At Hawthorn, psychiatrist George Mellos prescribed Ariana a powerful antipsychotic drug despite the fact he did not have her medical records nor the consent of her mother, Maryanne.

It took Maryanne several days to locate her daughter and find out where she’d been taken. When they finally found her, Ariana was so doped up on Risperdal that she was drooling and despondent.

Days later, Maryanne was arrested and charged with 8 felony counts for trying to protect her daughter from being kidnapped.

Eventually, the charges would all be dropped and Maryanne and Ariana would be reunited again.

This happy ending, however, would soon come to an abrupt end as Detroit prosecutor Kym Worthy has made it her mission to continue to attack this woman.

According to Maryanne, the criminal case is on “stay” as well as a lawsuit filed against the city and they are going broke fighting the continued appeals against them by the prosecutors office.

“All I have ever wanted to do is to protect my child, and we want very much to be able to get on with our lives and get this case behind us,” Maryanne said.

However, law enforcement working on behalf of a criminal medical industry are making that nearly impossible. Maryanne’s family has since set up a Go Fund Me account to garner support for their legal fees in the battle against medical tyranny.

It is important to note that there are certainly people, of all ages, who can benefit from certain prescription medication.

However, there are 26,000 babies under the age of 12 months who are prescribed antidepressants like Prozac and Zoloft. Another 274,000 babies under 12 months are on anti-anxiety medication such as Valium and Xanax. Between the ages of 1-5, those numbers jump up into the millions!

To top off this incredible medical blunder, these prescriptions are written off-label, meaning that there is absolutely no evidence to show that these drugs work in children. There are people out there with the letters M and D attached to the back of their names who are trusted by society. They are betraying this trust by giving 188,000 children between the ages of 0-5 ADHD medicine that is in the same class as crystal meth. 

To reiterate the dangerous premise of overmedicating children in such a manner, with drugs that aren’t even proven to help them in any way, and are in fact dangerous, let’s revisit the first sentence of this article again.

Suicide, birth defects, heart problems, hostility, violence, aggression, hallucinations, self-harm, delusional thinking, homicidal ideation, and death are just a few of the side effects caused by psychiatric medication.

Aside from the known side-effects, there are incidents of the drug companies deliberately falsifying the safety data and allowing a known dangerous drug to be given to children. For years, GlaxoSmithKline was illegally persuading doctors to prescribe paroxetine, sold under the brand name Paxil, as an antidepressant for children and teenagers.

GSK used contrived data, known as Study 329, which was conducted and funded by the drug company and published in 2001, to convince the doctors to write prescriptions. The study made the claim that Paxil is “well tolerated and effective” for kids. Their bolstered claims worked, and in 2002 alone, doctors wrote two million Paxil prescriptions for children and adolescents.

What we voluntarily choose to put into our bodies and our children’s bodies is of no concern to the State. When the State attempts to force society to ingest medication, it must be resisted. History is riddled with governments laying waste to human life through forced or experimental medical practices. We shall not be so ignorant as to embark down the same path.

Please share this article with your friends and family to empower them with knowledge while at the same time exposing such a dangerous practice.

    This my friends is where the USA is heading, its call fascism. How can a people so bent on bragging about their country that they say the home of the brave and free when it is all lies.The system took her child for no legal reason but to put her on drugs that will definitely harm her in many ways and yet they will lie to us in saying that it was for her health.( Bullshit,Bullshit,Bullshit) Why do I say bullshit, because if they where that concerned about her health thet would have never allowed the residents of Flint to drink water that was highly contaminated with lead which will lead to harmful neurological side effects down the road for many residents especially the children. If you Americans can’t see the writing on the wall by now you are doomed.

    You are f… crasy, I cant find another way to putt it than the system is way beyound sanity and how the f…. can the medical society do this is even more stunning, 12 months babys on Prozac, the reality is mutch wurse than I could f…. imagine.
    And they even topped this with SWAT team. what kind of f…. morons is running this teams, how the f…. is this even possible, that alone is mindboggeling.

    Its laughable to behold an nation so f…. upon drugs and medics, that it defyes everything sane about helth and children.

    I cant do anything else than shake my head in disbelife that people actually does this to children, I am amazed.

      Do not be amazed. America is run by psychopathic Satanists who have created a satanic system for American society. They are pure evil pretending to be moral and good politicians. There are too many moral busybodies in America who are actually very IMMORAL and WICKED who call good things evil and evil things good.

  4. I was given risperidal one time by mistake and it gave me horrible waking nightmares for almost 12 hours. You know there are people out there that will say, “this could never happen to me” but I am telling you from my own experience that it can… This should terrify us more than ISIS, more than Al Queda, more than Islamic terrorists…

    • reggonald dualbridge | May 17, 2016 at 10:23 am | Reply

      I was plucked off the street for being homeless in Australia. I was jailed and forced to take risperidal and also for my release back into the community I had to take it. I was not given any info on the drug even though I asked for some. Massive dizziness and instant normalness occurred while on it. I can vouch for what your saying.

  5. A SWAT team complete with tanks to confront a mother and daughter. WTF? If this is not a police state I don’t what is.

      It would be awesome if it were. The unfortunate reality is that it is not satirical, and the incident you just read about was literally what transpired. Cognitive dissonance seems to have a grip on you, to the extent you cannot differentiate satire from disturbing reality.

        The first point I would like to address here is my poor grammar in my post. I do not have a habit of double checking and so I apologize for my careless grammatical error.

        The second point I would like to address is issue of cognitive dissonance. You have no idea how correct you are, sir or madam, in linking it to myself. Very astute.

        I do need to point out that I realize it is not satire. While I agree with some articles and disagree with others, I am under no illusions about the disturbing reality in which we live. I am Canadian though and we do not have the police state and fear mongering that takes place in the once great country of America.

          In what way was I displaying cognitive dissonance? Explain. Or don’t.. In all honesty it (our disagreement) doesn’t matter. So why waste our time? Would be the better question.

        I do, I am simply skeptical of any information found in any form of media. It can just as easily be manufactured to serve the government as it can be to serve the activist.

        In an age of photoshop and ultra realistic video creation, we can not take anything for granted. False reports and studies can be created by drug companies as well as those against and finding a completely unbiased source is almost impossible. In this day and age the truth is almost never able to be verified.

    Forced medications for infants and children, the elderly, prisoners and ‘treatment’ for mental health patients, vaccines, chlorine w/ two cancer-causing residues in the water, poisonous fluoride given to everyone from infants, immune compromised and elderly without consent, chemtrails dumped from the air, fracking to pollute the groundwater, lead not only in the water like Flint, but in the prenatal and children’s vitamins for years per the FDA website list, etc. And we’re not under siege from our own government? Years ago in a Social Worker job interview, I became aware that parents were offered ‘stipends’ to drug their babies with psychiatric drugs, with the claim that they were now able to diagnose early. Psychiatry is a sham. Be your own authority, because those ‘professionals’ prescribing this stuff are bought by their paychecks and profits, and the government has been in bed with Big Pharma for years.

    “What shall be the consequence to man, as the New Age and new Dispensation firmly sets in and the Son of Man comes among men with his plan to overthrow all that is not founded on Truth and Love?
    The evil that now exists will ultimately give way to the doctrine of the Soul — WITHIN — for all men; opening their eyes to the false so they may glimpse the truth. Mankind will be offered freedom instead of slavery and the dominion of God (the good) will reign at last, replacing the gory hand of passion for self
    — GLORY and POWER.”

    Shameful….she should move to another state

  16. Really, when this kind of thing can go on without either a large enough public outcry or real political leadership to stop it, then we must admit that our culture has failed us as a functioning society. We are out-of-control and heading for disaster as a people if we continue on this imaginary road to perfection.

    I remember when this trend began in the 80s. The decade that saw the commercialization of the medical industry. It started with Ritalin. For kids with so-called ADD. Later the medical profession began diagnosing adults as having it too. The profit motive is strongest once you accept the Reaganomics’ concept of “greed is good”.

    Ever since we have been treating “natural” human conditions, as well as others that are most often environmentally-based, as though the use of inadequately-tested and often dangerous drugs will make us better. More “perfect”.

    The worst aspect of course is like everything else in our crippled society, income and race become a freedom factor. If you’re white, have enough money, etc., the chance you’d end up in a story like this are much closer to “nil”.

    I so hope this brave Mother can win back her rights as a parent, a citizen and a Human Being. Kudos to her for all she’s endured thus far!!!

    • Well, you are so wrong about that “assumption”, Mr. Stone. White families have the very same horrible experiences. Their children are illegally taken from them, and drugs forced down their throats. When we stop thinking this can only happen to “them”, we might all wake up and do something.

      • I don’t disagree that my fellow “white people” can get screwed by the system too. I bear witness to my own life’s circumstances on that account. So I don’t need you to lecture or try to correct me on that keen observation. But to even attempt to claim that there is anything close to equitable treatment between us and people of color? Or between income groups?

        Please, you do an “injustice” to all who strive for equality.

        And truth be told. I wasn’t making an assumption in so much as I was pointing out a factual injustice (that I have also bore witness too in my lifetime) that is much too prevalent, as well as and ignored by our society as a whole.

        And so denied by so many as well.

        Aside from that, I find your repute most odd since the bulk of my comment was in objection to our healthcare system being too profit-oriented and insensitive to the rights of the parent. No thoughts on that?

        Maybe you missed that part since it was only how I began, and discussed for over two thirds of the comment. Only adding the final “race-related” objection almost as an after-thought.

        But in the spirit of civility, I’m sorry if I offended you, even though your kind of observation doesn’t help things get better for anyone. White or Black. Or Hispanic. Or Asian. Or Arabic or etc., etc.

        Or else why are we disagreeing?
