(NaturalNews) Yet another case of medical kidnapping by the government has surfaced in America, this time involving a 17-year-old young man from Missouri who’s currently being held captive by the Illinois Department of Children & Family Services (DCFS) with no end in sight.
Isaiah Rider of Kansas City suffers from a rare neurological condition that results in extremely painful tumors forming on his nerves, seemingly without cause. His mother Michelle, seeing Isaiah’s extreme pain, tried to help him by bringing him to Illinois for a special surgery roughly one year ago.
But Lurie Children’s Hospital, where he was admitted, in concert with DCFS, decided instead to falsely accuse Isaiah’s mother of medical abuse and neglect, and proceeded to make him a ward of the State of Illinois, meaning that the state is now his legal guardian.
While under the state’s “care,” Isaiah says he was sent into foster care where he was physically and sexually abused by his foster “parents.” Thankfully, Isaiah is no longer in foster care and is now living back in Missouri with his grandparents. But he still suffers from extreme pain and is only allowed to see his mother with permission from the state.
“I’m stressed out,” Isaiah explained during a recent interview on The Robert Scott Bell Show. “I’m having a lot of pain with my leg again. I’m happy that I’m living with my grandparents, but I’m having a lot of problems with my leg again.”
State of Illinois ignores allegations of physical, sexual abuse by its DCFS system
Neither the State of Illinois nor the State of Missouri has launched an investigation into the criminal claims made by Isaiah about his horrific living situation while in the DCFS foster care system. Both states presumably receive federal funding by keeping Isaiah in custody, so this is hardly surprising.
But Isaiah now needs more care, as his condition has not improved since being kidnapped by DCFS. He and his mother are trying to gain admittance to the Mayo Clinic, but the State of Illinois has yet to grant its approval, leaving Isaiah with no options.
“I’m really scared that I’m going to go into another pain crisis,” said Isaiah. “I’m literally in chains, and they’re pulling me where I need to go.”
Meanwhile, Isaiah’s mother is struggling to maintain a solid presence in her son’s life — this is after both DCFS and Isaiah’s foster “parents” repeatedly tried to manipulate him to turn against her, for whatever reason. No matter what Isaiah says or does to combat the targeting of his mother, his “caretakers” and the state don’t seem to care.
“I don’t know what’s going through their minds, but honestly I feel like they don’t care about me,” lamented Isaiah. “No matter what I say, they’re always targeting my mom,” he maintained, adding that he told DCFS that his mother never neglected or abused him.
“Isaiah’s voice has been silenced, and pretty much mine as well — it holds no merit,” contends Isaiah’s mother.
“We’re both being treated basically like criminals, like we’ve done something wrong, second-class citizens. And neither of us has done anything wrong. I think it’s very clear that Isaiah has well-documented medical problems, and he still has the same medical problems he had when they intercepted.”
