Skip to comments.Apparantly Greer issued a restraining order earlier preventing the DCF from taking Terri Schiavo...

A state judge issued an emergency order Wednesday to keep the Department of Children & Families from taking any action that would reconnect Terri Schiavos feeding tube. George Felos, the attorney for Michael Schiavo, asked Pinellas Circuit Judge George Greer to issue the order Wednesday while the judge considers a request from DCF and Gov. Bush to take custody of Terri Schiavo.
This may explain the delay.
He can't stop an emergency intervention.
Gov. Bush doesn't need Greer's permission, per the law.
A judge cannot enjoin the executive from enforcing the law, so long as the law is on the books.
Greer loses this one.
This was my thinking as well...that perhaps Bush's council doesn't think he can legally take custody without a court order...that has been denied. This is looking more bleak by the minute.
It's my understanding that the state does not need Greer's permission and they have authority over him. This is judicial tyranny.
Judge Greer can't stop enforcement of the law, so long as the law is on the books.
He loses this one.
He can't. IMHO, he has overstepped his bounds and authority. I say arrest Greer for obstruction.
That man certainly is working hard to kill his wife. Guess when he finally remembered what she had said 8 years ago he decided it should be his priority in life (when he wasn't commiting adultery and having children). With the Dems everything is "for the children" I guess with him all the hateful things he does are "for Terri". Too bad there's no tube we can disconnect from him.
How is he going to enforce it?
I know there is a that old joke about lawyers in Hell, but I think about this quite a few judges will be joining them in due time.
So, who does Gov. Faubus...I mean, Judge Greer get to enforce his "order" in the face of Governor Bush's authority? Rusty the Bailiff?
Jeb Bush needs to call in the troops now and go and get Terri and stop this crap.
These people are beond rational behavior, but I guess premeditated murder is not really considered rational behavior.
This crackpot has usurped absolute power over the State of Florida and is holding it hostage!
Follow the money!
This is the business of the DCF.
The Lord is Terri's Shepherd --- That's Relationship !!!
She shall not want --- That's Supply !!!
He maketh her to lie down in green pastures --- That's Rest !!!
He leadeth her beside the still waters --- That's Refreshment !!!
He restoreth her soul --- That's Healing !!!
He leadeth her in the paths of righteousness --- That's Guidance !!!
For His name sake --- That's Purpose !!!
Yea, though Terri walks through the valley of the shadow of death --- That's Testing !!!
She will fear no evil --- That's Protection !!!
For Thou art with her --- That's Faithfulness !!!
Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort her --- That's Discipline !!!
Thou preparest a table before Terri in the presence of her enemies--- That's Hope !!!
Thou annointest her head with oil --- That's Consecration !!!
Her cup runneth over --- That's Abundance !!!
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow Terri all the days of her life --- That's Blessing !!!
And she will dwell in the house of the Lord --- That's Security!!!
Forever --- That's Eternity !!!
Congressional Subpoena & President Signs Schiavo Bill --- That's Expectation !!!
Gov. Jeb Bush takes Terri into protective custody --- That's Deliverance !!!
Face it ---- The Lord is crazy about Terri !!!
Otherwise --- Why else would He continuously deliver her from
the evil hands of her attempted murderers ???
This is why it was bad that Jeff Bush announced this.
It's about a Judge's ego. Most of them get like that. He won't give in because to do so would be to relinquish his personal power.
