Chicago Judge Strips Mom of Visitation Rights for Son Because She Isn't Vaccinated;
Reverses Decision Due to Public Outrage

I have a few words for the government/Ruling Class.

These words were delivered by Fletcher Christian to Captain Bligh in the 80's version of Mutiny on the Bounty (called simply The Bounty), to warn Bligh that the crew would mutiny over his latest orders:

"I don't think the men will have it."

Bligh ignored that warning.

He was set adrift in the ocean to die. (He didn't die, thanks to his strong navigational skills.)

To the story:

A Chicago mother says a Cook County judge has taken away her parental rights after learning that she is not vaccinated against COVID-19.

In what all parties agree is a very unusual and perhaps unprecedented step, a judge at Chicago's Daley Center has stripped Rebecca Firlit of custody because she refuses to get a vaccination shot.

"I miss my son more than anything. It's been very difficult. I haven't seen him since August 10th," Firlit told FOX 32 News in an exclusive interview.


That's the day Firlit appeared in court via Zoom along with her ex-husband for a child support hearing involving their 11-year-old son. The two have been divorced for seven years and share custody and parenting time.

The child is young enough to have essentially no risk from covid.

She says out of the blue, Cook County Judge James Shapiro asked her whether she had been vaccinated. Firlit told Shapiro she had not because she has had bad reactions to vaccines in the past.

Shapiro then ordered that Firlit be stripped of all parenting time with her son until she gets vaccinated.


"It had nothing to do with what we were talking about. He was placing his views on me. And taking my son away from me," Firlit said.

Annette Fernholz, Firlit's attorney, says the judge has overstepped his authority.

"In this case you have a judge, without any matter before him regarding the parenting time with the child deciding Oh, youre not vaccinated. You don't get to see your child until you are vaccinated.' That kind of exceeds his jurisdiction," Fernholz said.


"You have to understand the father did not even bring this issue before the court. So its the judge on his own and making this decision that you cant see your child until you're vaccinated," Fernholz added.

You may be suspecting that the former husband vindictively asked the judge to terminate visitation.

Nope! The father had nothing to do with this. This "judge" decided to strip a woman of her right to see her own child on his own.

"You have to understand the father did not even bring this issue before the court. So its the judge on his own and making this decision that you cant see your child until youre vaccinated," Fernholz added.

Though the attorney then said they "supported" the decision.

The attorney representing the father, Jeffrey Leving, says they were also surprised by the judge's decision, but they support the ruling saying that given the pandemic, the child should be protected from an unvaccinated mother.


Only due to backlash and the threat of an appeal -- which would, hopefully, result in an excoriation of this little tyrant -- has the judge vacated the parts of his order demanding that a child be SEPARATED from his mother.

"Judge Shapiro just issued an order vacating portions of his prior order of August 11th so Rebecca Firlit can see her son again," attorney Annette Fernholz told FOX 32 Chicago.

I don't think the men will have it.

There are rumblings.
