Amen Jim...when there is doubt, we must err on the side of life. Otherwise we are not true to ourselves as a nation, as a Republic, or as a people.

That the Justice system did not do so for Terri is a travesty and a mockery...and down right scary. Something we must fight to the hilt.

Ditto.

Terri ran out of luck. A different draw from the 11th circuit and she'd still be alive.

God Bless her soul.

What I can't get over is all the FReepers I have seen disparage JimRob for his position. As if FR was their creation and not his, and should rightly be able to follow the direction he wants it to take.

I'm thinking that all the bitterness of the folks who can't take others disagreeing with them on this matter is what is making the current FReepathon progress so slowly. Well, at least it's progressing slowly in my estimation (yes, to whoever is thinking the question, I've already made my donation).

I second that!!

"Of course, Terri did not even receive the benefit of a trial
much less the benefit of the doubt.
She was simply snuffed out per a judge's
order based on three out of five expert "opinions."
It's a shame and a disgrace and a mockery of justice."

I agree with your editorial---

and that is why I have pretty much stayed away from the "testy" posters and threads, because mine would just be another "opinion", and it was causing so much anger and hard feelings here on FR.

Posters that normally joke around in threads have suddenly gone mean and nasty---I just don't get it, just like JR said, it is all speculation and opinion except for ONE thing,

The whole world watched and let a poor disabled woman starve to death for TWO WEEKS and thats OK? NO- I can't accept that for FR, or my country or humanity.

As for the FReepers that have chosen to leave because of this---it is their loss

Clear, succinct and to the point.
Nothing further need be said(although plenty will be).

I gotta go with Jim on this.

The government and unaccountable judges have moved into activities that have condemned the law abiding Nazis at Nuremberg.

The only difference with Terri is that she got more publicity than the others murdered in similar fashion before her.

I agree. It was murder by judicial fiat plane and simple.

In this country, you can kill unborn babies and people who society deems to have no value, yet it is nearly impossible to kill convicted murderers. Almost makes you wanna write an opus, move to the woods and grow your own food.

POINT ON JIM!

MANY OF OUR FELLOW FREEPERS ARE DEVASTATED BY THIS TRAVESTY!

SOME TO THE POINT OF ILLNESS.

THAT THIS WOULD OCCUR IN THIS LAND IS BEYOND BELIEF.

GODBLESS!

While I am in total agreement with your essay on Terri, I have yet to hear what you would propose as a solution to the judicial tyranny that we face.

Care to share?

Well that not surprising, Terri was adopted by many as a 'sister'. Some who are grieving are nowhere's near ready to come back, some are still in shock or ill. Grief has to take its own course.

I hope most freepers are back in time to raise some H*LL with congress and the state legislatures to make ABSOLUTELY sure this can happen NEVER AGAIN!!!

I guess I should kick in a little extra to FR this month to show my appreciation...
