Lemonade and Heavy Handed Authority

Another reason we need to be taking authority away from government not giving it more.
Absent-minded professor dad buys lemonade for his kid at a baseball game. Turns out it's a Mike's Hard Lemonade.

After a guard spots the bottle, the kid is whisked away to the hospital in an ambulance (!) where they found no trace of alcohol in his blood about 90 minutes later. The doctors said he was OK to go, but instead he wound up in foster care. It was "two days before the state of Michigan allowed Ratte's wife, U-M architecture professor Claire Zimmerman, to take their son home, and nearly a week before [dad Christopher] Ratte was permitted to move back into his own house."

Everyone involved seems to have come down with a serious case of "just following orders":
Quick question: What was more harmful to the kid - drinking the Mike's Hard Lemonade or being separated from his parents for two days, his father nearly a week? If you have to think about this one, go to the back of the class.

The police state continues to grow.

It just gets worse and worse, doesn't it?
 
Don't tell anybody but I let my kids have a small sip of my beer every once in a while.
 
I grew up sipping my dad's beer.
 
I have seen that beverage in stores, but never looked at it closely. I had no idea it contains alcohol - and wouldn't have ever thought.

Oh my God - arrest me!
