(Roanoke Times)   Some dangerously ill kids go to the emergency room in their parents' car. Some go by ambulance or even helicopter. This kid went to the ER in a SWAT team van after they kicked in his anti-vaxxer mother's door   (roanoke.com) divider line

So in related news, my local fishwrap actually printed this drivel the other day. I almost punched my newspaper.

I oppose Oregon House Bill 3063, which would make vaccinations absolutely mandatory, and deprive children of an education if parents don't comply.

I've been a Christian Scientist for nearly 30 years. Our daughter, now 20, has almost never been ill. We've seen swift healings of sickness or injury through scientific prayer alone, usually within hours, or, at most a day or so (even of flu and chicken pox). Christian Scientists aren't against medicine; but turning to God as a first resort, there's generally no need for medical treatment.

Parents must be mindful when making the decision to vaccinate. We must all make informed choices according to our highest sense of right. Most who request a religious or philosophical exemption from some or all vaccines do so not out of fear but from personal conviction based upon research and experience.

I'm for separation of church and state, and for freedom of choice. Protecting public health is vital. But medical tyranny is just plain wrong.

Our discussions shouldn't be clouded by emotional manipulation, superstition, pharmaceutical companies' influence, or fearmongering.

I mean placebo generally involves a pill or injection that is fake, so it ain't that.

People who don't vaccinate their children and their children die should be executed if that's their only child and sterilized if they have other children (and those children should be vaccinated and taken from those parents).

Man, this is a collision of three really shiatty things - anti-vaxxers, the US health care system, and the militarized police.

Anti-vaxxers are stupid and should be banned because they endanger all of us.
I do sympathise with their opinion that in general people shouldn't be forced to go and incur a $3,000 dollar hospital bill, because holy shiat that will ruin most people.  The health care system is so farked here and we need a complete overhaul to make it affordable.  (He still was under doctor's orders to at least go to an urgent care, which is cheaper - you don't get a choice to just go home when the doctor says you need to do something or your kid might die).
And a bunch of cops with guns drawn kicking your door down is just so America.  It's a wonder the entire family didn't end up with bullets in them whether by accident or by "accident".

Ultimately the right thing was done but everything in this article sucks so much.

A fever of 104 or higher has the potential to cause brain damage or death.
The doctor calls the cops and says, perfectly reasonably, that "hey this kid in my medical opinion could become a vegetable or die and his parents are refusing treatment".  There's now a choice between intervening to save the kid's life or letting an innocent farking kid die because his parents are unholy towering paragons of moronity.
The full SWAT team response is way out of line but the issue needed forcing somehow, and this country doesn't seem to have any other tools to do so.

Well...105 is pretty high, and when your "naturopathic" ""doctor"" is telling you that the kid really needs to go to the ER because she suspects meningitis, then is worried enough to call around to local hospitals and clinics to make sure you actually went, I'd say we might be into 'child endangerment' territory.

And once there, what's the endgame?  The people endangering the child saying "nope, kid's fine now, please go away" so the cops pack up and go home?  They keep politely knocking? What is the proper course of action?

Amazing. One troll and all of you leap to the defense of police.

If it were a black kid they'd've just shot him and the parents and claimed self-defense.

This was an overboard response to a terrible thing. A wrong is not righted by another wrong. And saying people who don't automatically believe it is are the enemy is, frankly, Trump-like thinking.

From the article:
According to Patheos, an online outlet covering religion, the children's removal from their parents' home led to a viral conspiracy theory that quickly spread on anti-vaccination Facebook groups, claiming that unvaccinated children were being "stolen" by the authorities. "Almost immediately, discussions broke out that Arizona DCS was kidnapping unvaccinated children to sell them into foster care," the site reported. "Many said that unvaccinated children are highly in demand because they are incredibly healthy. Several discussed an Arizona 'kidnapping cartel.'"

And they're being at a transit point located in the basement of a DC pizzaria before finally being sent to the people who bought them.

Isn't the internet great at helping people to educate themselves and make for a better world?

Dadoody: Hmm, Farkers support totalitarian police state responses to mundane issues.

I don't see how this is totalitarian. There was reasonable suspicion of child neglect, a crime. If the child had died of negligence, that would be manslaughter. That's sufficient to get a warrant.

And because the regular officers were initially denied entry, they had to bring in SWAT to forcibly enter. That's not actually something regular police typically do.

Funnily enough, these anti-vaxxers were so characteristically ignorant they incorrectly believed it is illegal in Arizona to not vaccinate, which is untrue according to the article. Their fear of being arrested for a failure to vaccinate was utterly unjustified.

My understanding of the situation was that the SWAT negotiator was brought in to convince them their kid was in danger. After that failed they kicked in the door. SWAT is who should be kicking in doors. This was unfortunately the best possible solution.

It was on the news on tv here last night. I was so disgusted. Kids in cages on the border, and they want to protest this. It's like they just want to make others suffer for their ignorance.

HOWEVER. There is a right way and a wrong way to go about things, and feeding into the anti-vaxxers fears by acting like thugs is not exactly a right way. Kids are yanked out of homes all the time and CPS does it, and if they want to really shine a light on the trauma inducing organization that handles that dept from county to county and state to state, and almost without fail is a huge clusterfark by showing how Child Protective Services handles legal child abductions, then that would be another thing.

But two wrongs don't make a right. Swat isn't needed, and the foster care system, all of them, are often fronts for human trafficking cartels at worst, and are filled with neglectful and abusive foster parents as well, that have no oversight themselves.

and all the people wanting to punch and murder the parents..I'm sure the children would just love that..to have people judge the only ones they know love them and are keeping them from them and wish ill on their mom and dad.

By the way, the kid was NOT ADMITTED TO THE HOSPITAL AFTER BEING TAKEN AWAY. The child has a respiratory infection, and the other children were not ill. So the parents were telling the truth, the child did get better, however since the views of the parents are anti-authoritarian and unpopular, then they deserve to have their children legally kidnapped and still not given back.

I think that's digusting. But then again, I've been in foster homes, and was always taken away from the home without need or cause, and always place in a worse and more neglectful and abusive situation, not a better one.

This has to be some kind of bizarre self parody.
It's not a simplistic, binary issue, and there are more rights in play here than the parents rights versus the state's. the child also has rights - and as a minor, those include the right to certain protections from responsible adults. Children are not property, and do not "belong" to their parents, to be disposed of as they wish.
It is a complicated, multilayered and nuanced matter - not a simple, binary "state vs individual" conflict in some teenage lolbertarian's head.
When you start calling people "sheep" , you don loser status. Grow up, and stop talking that weak shiat.
