Peck, MI — A woman was arrested this week and had her child taken from her after she called 9-1-1 to report that she was being attacked by her husband. When police arrived on the scene just after noon on Tuesday, they found a man attempting to strangle his wife in the presence of a small child.
The man was taken into police custody, but they did not stop there. They also attempted to place the child in government custody, and when the mother objected to them taking away her child, they arrested her as well.
As any caring mother would do, the woman attempted to prevent the police from stealing her baby, at which point they became violent with her, even using a stun gun on her.
The police said that the woman became “combative” and attempted to grab the officer’s pepper spray, but she was fully within her rights trying to save her child from a government kidnapping. If the police would not have tried to take her child away, the situation would have likely ended with the abusive husband getting arrested, as it should have.
Now the concerned mother is facing felony charges of disarming a police officer, child neglect, as well as resisting arrest and obstructing.
Sanilac County Sheriff Gary Biniecki made a statement after the incident, saying that “This case is a reminder that this type of violent encounter can happen anywhere at any time. The situation could have had a tragic outcome and goes to show you how important having the right tools to do the job is, such as tasers.”
The police say that the child was in danger, even after the father was subdued, but there is no proof or indication that the mother was unfit to take care of her child in any way.
Sadly, this child is now likely to become a ward of the state whose track record “fostering” children is horrifying.
