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.

CLAY ROBERTS, Crist's advisor spiked Terri's investigation for somebody. Was it for Crist or was it for Judge Greer and Judge Shames?
It appears that as a reward for helping quash the Terri investigation while she was alive and well, CLAY ROBERTS is now Crist's advisor. Will Clay Roberts get in a Crist cabinet as a reward for burying a file full of evidence against the husband and the judges? I hope not because Clay Roberts is part of the machine.
There is a missing DCF file with Crist's fingerprints on it. The problem is that Crist said he never saw a DCF file re: Terri. So, somebody like Crist who will lie once, will have to keep lying because as many believe, Terri's murder was state sponsored homicide and Charlie Crist helped bump her off.
If Castro or his brother Raul get out of power in Cuba, I'd rather have a businessman making trade missions to Cuba than Crist who would keep Cuba for his special interests. Cuba still wouldn't be free if Crist became governor. His friends would take over.
I have been thinking about you. In fact, I have been thinking about you for a few days. It's good to see you again.
I admire their decision to help others, to have plans for the future to build safe houses across America for others who are in the sites of the death cultists.
I started helping Terri over the legal abominations and others started helping Terri due to their faiths.
We all came together for whatever reason and in her memory, we will fight the euthanazi's. They don't buy into natural death. For them, it's about letting judges, lawyers, and bad doctors killing people. Charlie Crist let them kill Terri. CRIST LET TERRI DIE. She's from his County but then again, so is Judge Greer. He chose the blind sheik judge's politics over Terri's life. FV
I Agree. And I saw his commercial about paying teachers more.....he's crossed completely off my list.
I know. I admire you sooo much. I bought David Gibbs book about Terri. I only just started reading it. It's already sad and I'm only on page 10. Just wanted you to know that I was thinking of you and it's good to see you again.
Crist lying in this ad about Florida being safe. It wasn't safe for Terri. Florida Attorney General CHARLIE CRIST let her die. CRIST IS NOT PRO-LIFE or a fair leader. He violated his oath of office, Florida and the U.S. Constitution.
The death cultists have friends in high places in Florida. Give them the boot!
a different kind of facists killed Terri.
The Schindlers imo stayed out of politics while Terri was alive because Judge Greer would use any excuse to hit them with a contempt order even though all they did was love their child.
No matter how one feels about this, Charlie Crist did not do his job!!
They are Crist supporters so Crist can't or won't indict them.
Terri's dead. Martin Anderson is dead. Terri's death was state sponsored and Martin, a minor, died while in state custody.
Charlie Crist cannot protect a flea! Crist even promotes the death lobby on his ag page.
TOM GALLAGHER FOR GOVERNOR PING LIST. Post to: floriduh voter and you're on.
Crist didn't do his job on purpose and now he wants a big promotion. So do his cronies in the euthanasia biz.
"TOM GALLAGHER FOR GOVERNOR PING LIST."
Count me in.
Perhaps not, but he's taken other actions and made other statements that show him to be patently anti-life.
Social conservatives who support Gallagher, such as Orlando lawyer John Stemberger, say Crist is not a true conservative because of his stands on abortion, gay marriage, gambling and the Schiavo case.
"Charlie Crist is a conservative impostor," Stemberger writes in an article on the Human Events Online Web site.
Stemberger says the choice between Gallagher and Crist puts Florida at a moral crossroads in 2006, just as California was when Reagan left for the White House and liberals led that state into a culture of "abortion, drug use, divorce, crime and school dropouts."
For evidence, Stemberger points to a vote Crist made as a state senator when he sided with Democrats to defeat a bill requiring a 24-hour abortion waiting period.
