Retired Air Force Officer Sues Gov. Crist Over Forced Vaccination October 2, 2009

NAVARRE — A woman wants to take Gov. Charlie Crist to court.

Retired Air Force Lt. Col. Carmen Reynolds has named Crist, Attorney General Bill McCollum and Florida Surgeon General Ana Viamonte Ros in a lawsuit in Santa Rosa County Circuit Court that challenges a state statute governing public health.

“I am retired military, so I understand about following orders and towing the line and falling in,” she said. “But, this is very troubling.”

Reynolds, who is serving as her own attorney, is opposed to a section of the statute that allows law enforcement to use any means necessary to vaccinate a resident in case if an emergency.

Chapter 381.00315(1)(b)4 says a person can be forced to be tested, vaccinated, treated, examined or quarantined for communicable diseases that have significant morbidity or mortality and present a severe danger to the public.

“I’m not against all vaccines, but I’m against any provision in any state statute that says we must forego all of our rights and, at the arbitrary whim of either our state government or our federal government, be subject to any and all force necessary to subject us to a vaccine. We’re talking physical force,” Reynolds said.

Reynolds will appear in court in October to fight a motion to dismiss the lawsuit.

Attorneys for Crist and McCollum say the case should have been filed in Tallahassee. The motion also argues that Reynolds did not have the right to file a lawsuit because she did not say how she is affected by the law.

According to the motion, “A challenge to a statute may only be brought by one whose rights or duties are affected or prejudiced by it.”

The motion also said Crist and McCollum should not have been named as defendants. The state official or agency responsible for enforcing the law was the only one that should be prosecuted.

Reynolds filed an objection and then filed a motion to schedule a hearing.

“This is important to me because I believe it is a clear violation of many of the items in our Bill of Rights for the state of Florida and in our Florida Constitution. It’s a violation of our basic rights, our due process, our ability to be free of searches and seizures, excessive punishments. It violates privacy rights and all of that is stipulated in my case,” Reynolds said. “Nobody should be fearful of going to bed at night and being told that they will either go into a quarantined facility or be subject to any and all force necessary.”

Reynolds was forced to retire as an instructor at Hurlburt Field because of health issues. She believes her problems may have been caused by vaccinations she was required to take.

She has since written a 105-page study on vaccinations and found that there was very little quality control.

“These are not tried and true vaccines. They’re actually harmful,” Reynolds said. “They impact the immune system in a very negative way and they’re rushing these vaccines to production and this is all about a profit motive.”

Profit or no profit, Reynolds still would disapprove of the statute’s provision because it violates her rights. She said it gives the government omnipotent control.

Reynolds’ lawsuit is not political, but he says others would feel just as strongly about the issue if they are made aware.

“We’re seeing this more and more throughout our federal government and I was just shocked to find it in our state provisions,” Reynolds said. “We don’t even know about things like this until we’re made to comply.”

Where are the studies documenting the safety of vaccines in Healthy Children? Seriously. Where are all of the safety studies of flu vaccines and children? We’re going to be vaccinating millions of them and there are legitimate safety concerns. Nobody in government or industry is promising families that this vaccination program is safe or won’t harm our kids. Additionally, none of the patient inserts from the vaccine manufacturers claim the vaccine will prevent you from the H1N1 Swine Flu. If they read it, parents will be able to see this lack of any kind of promise of safety or effectiveness on the insert for themselves. This is not a conspiracy. Families want and need to know this information!

Sadly, I believe that most people are making uninformed decisions and that in the a lot of money is being made by a small number of people. Flu shots = money, not safety.

Many Physicians are openly opposing swine flu vaccination. http://wp.me/pC1DX-2S
