Charlie Crist Let My Daughter Die
by Robert Schindler, Sr. Posted Jul 31, 2006
As most Americans know, on March 31, 2005, my daughter, Terri Schindler Schiavo died of starvation and thirst after having her feeding tube removed by court order. The sad chain of events that concluded with Terris death ignited a media firestorm nationally and internationally. What few saw or heard was the callous inaction of aspiring governor Charlie Crist.
Florida Atty. Gen. Charlie Crist let my daughter die. He had it within his authority to save her life, but he turned a blind eye to her suffering. Even worse, he worked to ensure her death.
Terri lived in a neurologically compromised state for reasons that are still unknown, and my family wanted nothing more than permission to care for Terri for the span of her natural life. We were denied.
My daughter tenaciously fought for her life for more than 13 days after being deprived of the most basic, natural and constant need that we all sharethe need for nourishmentfood and water. Terri was not on a respirator, nor terminally ill. She was not dying, nor succumbing to a dreadful disease. She was disabled. She was dependent on others, but still very much a life, a woman, and a person.
Over the course of several years, our family, our lawyers, and our friends pleaded for help from local, county, and state police and regulatory agencies with constitutional and statutory authority to investigate the many sworn statements of extreme abuse and neglect suffered by our daughter.
Hoping to save my daughters life, our family sought the help of Attorney General Charlie Crist. Not only did Charlie Crist refuse our family lawful access to the assets of his office, but he violated his oath of office by actively cooperated with those in positions of political and judicial authority whom denied us legal access to the police and regulatory systems meant to protect the weak. Multiple sworn agents from responsible police and regulatory agencies who found probable cause to investigate allegations of abuse in Terri's judicial and physical care, were ordered to shut down those probes. This heavy-handedness made us powerless.
Information of direct interest to Attorney General Charlie Crist's office was directly delivered to his personal hands, and he refused to properly execute the duties of his office. And it was with deliberate decision that he failed to attend a scheduled Tallahassee meeting with our family. On another occasion, we approached each other by chance. Upon recognizing me, Charlie Crist abruptly stopped and walked away.
That callous action encapsulates Charlie Crist. He walked away from a man whose daughters fate he controlled. At that moment, he turned his back on Terri. And he turned his back on the most fundamental duties of his office.
It is quite clear that Charlie Crist, to this day, has demonstrated no public affection for the cause of life, or Christianity, or any set of core values. He has been posturing to become governor for decades. With each voting audience he has crafted a message based on the expediency of the moment.
To add insult to injury, at a recent banquet, our alleged pro-life candidate for the Governor of Florida said the following about Judge George Greer and other judges involved in the death of my daughter, "You are heroes to all of us, and your defense of the judiciary and what is right is beyond admirable."
Through his actions, Charlie Crist has demonstrated that he has no regard for our most vulnerable citizens, the high duties of public office, or life itself. Charlie Crists celebration of the merciless judges who condemned Terri to death speaks to his true character.

That would be interesting.
A Few of the Facts That Werent Reported:
Terri was never on a ventilator. Her only "life support" was assistance with food and water at mealtimessomething she might have overcome with therapy.
Michael Schiavo and the court denied access to more than forty medical professionals, doctors, and neurologists who believed Terri had not been properly diagnosed.
Terri could recognize her parents and respond to them, attempting to speak.
Terri was so healthy that it took 13 days for her to dieeven without an ounce of food or water.
A Florida death row cell would have been safer for Terri than her hospice room since you cant starve a convicted criminal, or even an animal, according to Florida law.
Terri on the road to recovery before the second stage began.
Here he is with the Schindlers.
Thank you! V's wife.
Glad to do it.
"He [Crist] had it within his authority to save her [Terri's] life, but he turned a blind eye to her suffering. Even worse, he worked to ensure her death."

Crist to Judge Greer & Judge Whitemore: ""You are heroes to all of us, and your defense of the judiciary and what is right is beyond admirable."
Sure would wouldn't it? It had to be someone privy to what Jeb was doing.
Might have been more than one.
Tom Gallagher is a moron who let the insurance industry rape Florida homeowners for years.
I'm afraid Floridians don't have much of a choice this November, I won't vote for either of these SOB's.
Crist looks like someone famous, but I cannot think of who he resembles.
Please ping me when Mr. Schindler has his photo op with Hugo Chavez
I have been intimately close to the Schindler family for more than 3 years. Their motive was not, is not profit. The motive was and is a love few will ever understand. They dedicate every waking hour today to helping other families facing similar situations across America. Strange, the night Terri was asking for a divorce she is found face down on the floor her hands clutched up under her throat. I could, might write a book on the felony criminal fraud, and what was to have been a most of a million dollar theft of her rehabilitation and guardianship accounts with the corrupt help of a right to murder for money judge. The woman was NOT in a persistent vegetative state, that is a law of the case lie. I have witnessed the official court videos, and listened to the several audio recordings of her interacting with her environment, and know personally the people who had access to and interacted with her. She was aware of her own existence. In the moments before her natural food and natural water, natural gravity feeding tube was viscously slice from her belly, Terri Schindler Schiavo screamed for her life. As long as there is breath in my body I will be working for the indictment of a judge and a state prosecutor on a charge of first degree murder, and a variety of lesser charges for those others who facilitated murder.
Quality of life?
By whose standard? Yours? Other "professionals" deciding for me whether they are going to treat me, care for me, or MURDER ME? May God have mercy on the souls of those who in their superior wisdom put people to death who wanted to live. One day a major story of murder in a hospital setting in Sarasota will hit the headlines.
A quick story.
There's a young man in Rochester, NY I've gotten to know by telephone. He was in a coma for some months about 4 or 5 years ago. As he lay in his hospital bed the doctors stood there with his mother explaining that with medications he would die in 3 days, that if he lived he would be a vegetable. She was outraged. She stood with him, protected him. Today he walks with a limp, speaks with measured difficulty -- but he has a job working for an office products company, owns a car, has his own apartment, and at age 22 he has a life in front of him -- AND HE WANTS TO WORK to help others in danger of being murdered by health care professionals. The doctor standing there proposing medicinal murder, the young man lay there terrified, listening to every word. Do you want to hear other stories of people surviving doctors and nurses trying to murder their patients?
Terri could hear every word. She had the ability to discern between those "professionals" who loved her and wanted to take care of her, and those aligned with a "quality of life" culture of professional murder.
I don't know who tipped off Felos but Debra Bushnell, Death-At-Law showed up and personally guarded the entrance door to Hostage Woodside. It was probably at that time they were tipped off and even though the place was surrounded by swat team, Sheriff, FBI, Pinellas Park PD, Wackenhut, et al, Bushnell felt that it was necessary for her to guard the front door. They weren't ever going to shoot her, their weapons were aimed at us for almost two weeks.
This is all sourced news.
As Fla AG, Crist had a duty to defend Terri's Civil Rights, not to conspire with his judicial friends back in Pinellas County to starve and dehydrate an innocent woman to death.
Crist was involved up past his eyeballs and for him to say to the media that he "was staying out of it", that only meant, staying out of helping Terri. He most certainly LET TERRI DIE.
If you study Pinellas County politics, you will see a machine that makes Chicago's Daley machine look like amateurs!
