(NaturalNews) An Ohio childcare worker who accidentally dropped her own two-year-old son into a cheetah pit at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo after intentionally dangling him over the edge of a fence has been charged with child endangerment, and she now faces up to six months in prison and up to a $1,000 fine. Meanwhile, informed parents all across the country who choose not to vaccinate their kids are, in some cases, being threatened with having their children taken away from them by child "protective" services, a much harsher sentence for what amounts to a non-crime.

Reports indicate that Michelle Schwab, who has two other children besides her two-year-old, had been trying to give her son a better view of the cheetah exhibit when she accidentally lost her grip on him. He then slipped and fell, and went plunging into the 10-foot-deep enclosure at the park, prompting both Michelle and her husband to jump into the pit to retrieve him.

The boy ended up only suffering a minor leg injury and a few bumps and bruises, according to reports, and this after being rushed to the hospital and declared to be in stable condition. But his mother now faces child endangerment charges, and she has since taken a leave of absence from the Sawmill Road KinderCare facility in Columbus where she had previously been working as a child caretaker.

"Ms Schwab has been the Assistant Director at the Sawmill Road KinderCare in Columbus," stated facility spokesman Colleen Moran in an email to the Daily Mail Online (UK). "She is currently home with her family, and will remain out of our center while this issue is investigated and addressed."

Almost killing your child due to recklessness treated less harshly than not vaccinating

The unfortunate incident was obviously an accident, and the Schwabs should not, by any means, have either their two-year-old son or any of their other children taken away from them by the state. But the disparity here between how the state is treating this unintentional case of child endangerment and the many cases of informed non-consent concerning vaccines is striking.

Local news affiliate WKYC reported on another family who was at the cheetah exhibit at the time the Schwabs' little boy fell over the edge, and they expressed shock at the fact that the boy didn't become seriously injured or die as a result of the fall. One man by the name of Michael Lurie stated the following:

"You saw how far the drop was and you just couldn't believe the kid didn't hurt himself from falling down on the ground. I was just shocked. I didn't understand how the parents let the kid go over the thing."

In other words, the accident could have been fatal, and onlookers were perplexed at how it even happened. Some might even consider this to be irresponsible recklessness by the child's parents, hence the child endangerment charges. And yet there is no call being made to have the children taken away by the state in the same way that some are calling for non-vaccinating parents to be treated like criminals.

The penalties associated with nearly killing your child, in this case, appear to be less harsh than what some out there are now calling for with regard to parents who choose not to inject their children with dangerous chemical adjuvants, preservatives and live viruses. Something is wrong with this picture, wouldn't you say?
