Lock and load

From The Brussels Journal:

A quote from Paul Belien in The Washington Times, 28 February 2007

Earlier this month, a German teen-ager was forcibly taken from her parents and imprisoned in a psychiatric ward. Her crime? She is being home-schooled.

On Feb. 1, 15 German police officers forced their way into the home of the Busekros family in the Bavarian town of Erlangen. They hauled off 16-year-old Melissa, the eldest of the six Busekros children, to a psychiatric ward in nearby Nuremberg. Last week, a court affirmed that Melissa has to remain in the Child Psychiatry Unit because she is suffering from "school phobia."

This would present a dilemma. This kind of thing absolutely justifies armed resistance. The parents of this girl would be totally justified in a moral sense to open up on the stepchildren of Himmler when they came to steal their child. But the problem is that they have five other children who need them and as long as they are alive they have some hope of calling enough attention to this abomination to shame the state into turning their little girl loose before she is completely brainwashed, or brain damaged by whatever psychotropic drugs they're pumping into her.

So what do you do?
