Overman was visibly moved by Masterson's introduction of a powerful and dramatic video piece on Godboldo's harrowing fight for custody of her then 9 year-old daughter Ariana, that began with Child Protective Services illegally attempting to remove Ariana from her custody due to Godboldo's refusal to place her back on powerful psychotropic medication. Before the video was played, Masterson's introduction ended with his chilling statement; "If the TV footage you are about to see looks like Afghanistan, think again. It's Detroit."

Overman stated, "I'm deeply moved by Ms. Godboldo's story, and honored to have had the chance to meet and spend time with her. I believe strongly that we as citizens have a right to choose whether or not we and our children take prescription medication."
