Jacksonville, FL — Marina Falk received a horrifying call from school earlier this month in regard to her 6-year-old daughter Nadia. Officials from Love Grove Elementary School called Falk to tell her that police had taken her daughter because she’d been acting out. Without her consent, authorities essentially kidnapped a 6-year-old girl and held her in a facility for two days.
Falk never received a call when her daughter acted out. Only after she was taken by police did she get the call.
“I was alerted of an incident after she was Baker Acted,” Falk said
When Falk called police to see where her daughter was, they told her there was nothing they could do. She said the officer told her: “‘There’s nothing else we could do. Your daughter is completely out of control, and we were not able to de-escalate the situation.’”
According to the school, Nadia was alleged to have destroyed school property, attacked staff and running out of school. She is six. Highlighting the reliance on the police state is the fact that this school is for mentally challenged children like Nadia. They are set up to teach children with mental disabilities yet they couldn’t find another way to handle this little girl other than having her Baker Acted.
