Skip to comments.Apparantly Greer issued a restraining order earlier preventing the DCF from taking Terri Schiavo...
Posted on 03/23/2005 4:04:18 PM PST by Humblebum
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.
Why or why does this man risk everything to see Terri dead? He is bluffing and everyone is running scared.
Amen! God bless you!
As long as we have judges willing to murder the infirm, social security will be solvent forever.
I guess this is the Dems plan for Medicaid/Medicare, as well, and the true reason they demand the judiciary in their likeness via endless filibusters in the Senate.
In my state, the State Attorney General also has authority to shut medical facilities down and intervene in cases of abuse of the disabled and elderly.
If you went to hell you'd find lawyers but you wouldn't see any judges. To find them you'd have to lift the devils tail and shine a light up his anus. Apologies to Geoffrey Chaucer.
Jeff = Jeb Bush
Greer and the rest are EVIL...E V I L!! I can't believe how Nazi-like certain people are acting.
What blows my mind is that for everything that we do, want, wish, or whatever is that the first rule of thumb is to GET IT IN WRITING. If it isn't in writing it's all heresay. Therefore if Michael Schiavo's statements that Terri's wish would have been not to live as she is, and it was never put into writing in a living will, then his statements are purely HERESAY. And as we all know HERESAY never holds up in court. I absolutely cannot for the life of me see why there is any doubts. WTF
Wow, what a great description. I love it and will certainly remember it. Thanks! Why did Greer do that? Seems to me no matter what is put forth they are bound and determined to KILL this young woman. God forgive them cause I and millions of others sure wont'.
Are you serious?He gives a news conference with them but he has no say.LOL
whos jeff bush?
Power and arrogance.
The Schindlers made the mistake of questioning his authority and he's making the entire country pay for it.
Kinda reminds me what happened to Ramses when Moses kept trying to 'splain things to him...his heart was hardened.
Both MS and Greer are hell-bent on killing her -- what on earth is driving them? Or is it something below the earth?
What is he obstructing? He's doing his job.
How many "troops" does Greer have?
Looks like they want to push this Judge over the edge and make him look nuts. But time's a-wasten...
His friggin' wedding vows are apparently hearsay as well...but he's more determined to stick to Terri's alleged "death wish" than he is to "in sickness and in health."
There may be darker reasons.....
Something is really, really wrong with Judge Greer. He has blocked Terri from having the proper tests for years, and at every opportunity rules against her. I have never seen anything like this, and I have to ask does anybody have faith in the American judicial system after seeing how Greer operates?
See # 28
When Bush was on TV ... he asked the attorney there to answer to make sure it was correct. The attorney said the DFC COULD do it. Wow, talk about down to the last second. WHAT ARE THEY WAITING FOR??????????????????????????????
Greer cannot enjoin enforcement of a valid law on the books.
The statute in question gives the executive branch explicit authority to take Terri and secure her, even requires the police to transport her.
You are not the only one who has read some Dante.
Heh. Chaucer said that about the roaming Friars who would beg, borrow, steal, and guilt trip the people out of their money "for the church". He was a very entertaining writer, as you might imagine.
People, NEVER EVER Forget after this is over that the jackass party is trying to keep the Senate, OUR Senate from appointing judges who would hopefully stop this kind of thing from happening.
Work hard now to make the senate stick to constitutional authority to confirm these judges. If we fail in that and the senate does not change the filibustering "rules", then we may end up with a bloody internal conflict on our hands.
This seems like a good day for a "lawyer" joke:
Q: What do you call a lawyer with an I.Q. of 50?
A: "Your honor."
Amen...that is the core of our fight for utter survival. This could be the downfall of our nation.
This is what happens when you go on national TV and tell your enemy what you're planning to do. They should have just kept their mouths shut and said nothing to nobody and when the timing was right - gone in and taken her.
But .. once she was in state custody - Greer would just have her removed and have the tube removed again. There is no outcome for them but for her to die. It's sick! In fact, they are so determined - I believe they will be willing to castrate themselves to accomplish it.
I've had this sick feeling in my gut all day over this. Having been married to a brutal person - I shudder to think what would have happened to me in the same circumstances.
