November 9, 2010

The ACLU of Pennsylvania recently filed a civil rights lawsuit on behalf of a couple whose newborn baby was kidnapped by Lawrence County Children and Youth Services (LCCYS) because her mother recklessly consumed an "everything" bagel from Dunkin' Donuts the day before the birth.

Jameson Hospital, where Isabella Rodriguez was born on April 27, has a policy of testing expectant mothers' urine for illegal drugs and reporting positive results to LCCYS, even without any additional evidence that the baby is in danger of neglect or abuse. LCCYS, in turn, has a policy of seizing such babies from their homes based on nothing more than the test result. Unfortunately for Isabella's parents, Elizabeth Mort and Alex Rodriguez, Jameson sets the cutoff level for its opiate test so low that it can be triggered by poppy seeds, which is why two caseworkers and two Neshannock

Township police officers visited their home the day after baby and mother returned from the hospital. LCCYS seized the three-day-old girl and put her in foster care for five days before conceding it had made a mistake.

More at the link.

Crazy story... and you gotta love the 'kidnapped' they threw in there for good measure.

8-o 8-o WTF?? How could they even think that was appropriate? A quick link about how they pulled it.

Amazon pulls book on pedophilia after complaints

And... here's a nothing story about a potentially explosive cat.

Surprised he's only suing for $15K. Guy's serving 10 years and that's all he went for? Not that I agree with him or anything, I just found the amount he's going for is quite low.

Meanwhile, idiots like that in Texas are getting life in jail:

A repeat drunken driver from Lewisville blamed for an Easter morning wreck in which two people were killed has been sentenced to life in prison.

Barton has three other DWI convictions since 1997.

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
