I believe that Greer has denied evidence and testimony for the courts to properly judge the Terri Shiavo case. I believe Terri should must kept alive until questions about Michael's behavior be answered in the courts, as well as further medical studies such as MRI/PET scans and more than the 5 doctors Greer allowed. The Federal and Supreme courts have decided to take a "Pontius Pilate" aproach and do nothing about the un-answered questions in this case which leaves Terri's chance for justice up to the Governor

I know that the state executive sending law enforcement to do anything has been controversial when done in the past, but the question I have is whether or not it is legal for Jeb to send the National Guard, State Police or some other law enforcement to take custody of Terri Shiavo. I think it is based on what I see, what do you think?

(If you disagree, please try to show legal/historical evidence and not personal attacks.)

"Psychopath impropriety-laden Judge Greer
whose wife is a Board Member of the Hospital
and who takes money from the lawyers of the Hospital
has this week destroyed the worldwide reputation of America.
May all American dogs poop on him for all Eternity!"

My feeling is "do it" and screw the judge. It is the right thing to do. Besides, the Gov can pardon anyone who helps, and probably even himself.

Where was everyone last year when Judge Greer got re-elected?

"Equal protection" always seems to be available for causes we disapprove of. Maybe we could put it to some decent use in this case.

I've read that Greer did hear the evidence - but Greer has openly stated that he DISCOUNTED the information. In fact, he discounted everything that went against the husband.

Also .. Judge Greer's wife sits on the board of directors for the Hospice where Terri is. Looks like we have a little collusion goin' on here. And .. this might explain why the nurses' good reports about Terri on the computers were always erased.

You started with a false aseertion; it is Greer who has sent the execution directive, even specifying that No One be allowed to give Terri Schiavo water or food.

Just out of curiosity could Judge Greer be arrested and charged with murder or manslaughter? Those of you who are in the legal profession correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't most state's murder statutes written to state a person will be charged if they do something that results in the death of another person? Either by direct intent, accident, or reckless behavior?

I think the parents and the lawyers should send copies of all the evidence gathered against Michale Schiavo and Judge Greer and Felos and everything about this case to the Florida State Attny Office and US Attny Generals Office.

>>It appears to me that Article IV of the Florida Constitution gives Jeb Bush the power to send the National Guard w/out permission of Greer or any other judge to enforece Article I section 2 of the Florida Constitution

I've been trying to get this message across for weeks.. but I've been treated by a pariah by the moderators and participants alike...

Florida Statute 250.28 specifies his options..

I'm surpriesed your thread hasn't been deleted yet...

Excellent post. I'll probably get flamed but I think the governor should force a constitutional crisis by calling Greer on his actions via section B.

Quote from ABC on the hour here.

"Nobody has ever recovered from Terry's condition and never will".

They didn't give a source, just announced that.

Typical ABC. And they wonder why we criticize them.

Save Terri first. Jeb has the authority to go get Terri and Dubya can call out the Federales to go get her too. But tehy won't. Republicans are jellyfish, when it comes right down to it. After all, the media might say bad things about them. Boo hoo.

Greer should be arrested for contempt of Congress and all the attendant penalites should be applied. (He should be locked up until the case is over.) He is a state judge (at the low level, too) and he dares to try top tell the U.S. Congress whom tehy may and may not subpoena?

If the Republicans in Congress had any cajones, this judgenfuhrer would already be locked up.

The real question is whether Greer has overstepped his authority by ordering that no one can give Terri food or water by mouth. This on the face of it cannot be legal and why George or Jeb Bush haven't blasted Greer out of that courtroom on this one I will never understand.

Food and water given by mouth are not life support or extraordinary means in any shape, form or fashion. No judge has the power to order a person be denied food and water by mouth. I defy anyone to show me a legal authority for such an abomination. Why is Jeb waiting? Has this specific facet of this case been challenged? If not, why not?

Jeb and George are like lifeguards standing on the shore
watchin one they are charged with safeguarding... drowning

As Terri goes down for the third time the lifeguards sit on shore with a boat a working motor and extra trained life guard s helpers standing by..waiting orders

Also on the shore is the environmental guardian aka Greer with a piece of paper telling the life guards why it is they aren't allowed to rescue the woman they are sworn to protect..

As they debate and argue and petition and wring their hands and say things like "we are greatly saddened"..

A woman screams..her parents scream for help..a nation implores the lifeguards to do their job..

In the meantime the policy makers wrangle and argue and debate..the democrats throw rocks at everybody and the republicans issue edicts and prepare their glorious emotion chocked eulogies..meanwhile lamenting that it was the democrats who 'held them back'

Finally a woman dies a needless and brutal death...and then the blame game will begin..and the vultures will make as much political book on her death that they can..

The nation will never be the same..as the America that once was will die with Terri Schindler...

Our leaders all count on the American people having a short attention spans and even shorter memories..

They still don't grasp the power of the internet..

Soon they will come to the conclusion they must hobble it.

McCain & Feingold will no doubt help them out..

I heard some lawyer on TV say that Greer is a "conservative Republican." Can anyone confirm or deny?

I absolutely cannot believe that!
