Pinellas Park police Lt. Kevin Riley, standing upper right, prepares to arrest members of the Keys family as they were attempting to bring Terri Schiavo water Wednesday morning, March 23, 2005 outside the Woodside Hospice in Pinellas Park, Fla. The Keys family, of Burnet, Tex., kneeling, from left, Josie, 14, Gabriel, 10, Chris, the children's father, and Cameron 12, were all taken into custody. Galen Keys, upper left, the children's mother looks on, but was not arrested.The mother insists it was the children's idea: "I am proud of them," said the boys' mother Geilen Keys from Texas, who was not arrested. "They are very mature and they said 'we want to go and offer some water to Terri'."


Pinellas Park police Lt. Kevin Riley, second from left, handcuffs 14-year-old Josie Keys, left, while Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies place her father Chris in the back of a van after arresting members of the family for trespassing Wednesday morning March 23, 2005 outside the Woodside Hospice in Pinellas Park, Fla. The family members were attempting to bring Terri Schiavo a cup of water.


Gabriel Keys (foreground) is arrested by police officers for trespassing in Pinellas Park, Florida, March 23, 2005. The young protester attempted to take a glass of water into the Woodside Hospice for the brain-damaged Terri Schiavo. A federal judge rejected a request from the parents of Schiavo to order her feeding tube reinserted, dealing a blow to attempts by the U.S. Congress and the White House to prolong her life.

These kids may provide the tipping point where adults learn from the children.

It's really quite simple. Their parents either support what they're doing, or they don't.

If they do -- and the article seems to say they do -- the parents belong on the front line instead of sending the kids out to do it (otherwise, are they hiding behind their kids because they figure the authorities will be nicer to the kids? Do you think they're trying to teach the world something through their kids?).

If the parents don't support them doing this, the parents should tell their kids why, and the kids should honor their parents and stay out of it.

Bringing water to a thirsty dying woman is not, or shouldn't be, a crime. I would love to see thousands bring her a cup of water.

Yes, thousands of adults, or adults accompanied by their children. Not thousands of children going in to face the music while their parents stand on the sidelines. That's a lousy lesson more befitting the left. Of course, that's just my opinion. No hard feelings.

This is a learning experience. There is more to education than books and classes.

Oh I see, sort of like a field trip.

Somehow I can't imagine any of those great patriotic defenders of Americanism and American rights, those self-appointed border vigilantes, lifting and risking a finger to feed or nourish this native-born American woman, even if it was on someone else's dime.

Why do we laud it then and disparage it now?

Good question.

You sound a little bitter about the prolifers' strategy to get lots of mileage out of a pic of a kid in cuffs, just because he wanted to give a drink of water to a dying woman.

Commies aren't the only ones who know how to manipulate the press!

You Libs are pissing your pants over this.

These - or any - children are not immune from disease or impairment.

Working on precedent, their actions may well save their own lives.

"Not thousands of children going in to face the music while their parents stand on the sidelines."

You're assuming that the aprents weren't cuffed and stuffed into the paddy wagon with their kids.

Maybe the MSM manipoulated the situation to their addvantage by ONLY running with the pics of the kids.

Cause the most dramatic polarizing effect they could and such....

Hope your sailboat doesn't hit the Doldrums during your trip around the world.

You might find yourself longing for a cup of fresh water.

I believe the Lord looks at motivation. I believe He is well pleased by certain motivations.

This is unforgivable. I've never seen such stupidity as I've seen on FR in the last week. Ever. I told my husband it's been a learning experience.

I have had people tell me that then Christopher Reeve should have been left to die. That people with coloscopy bags should be left to die. They act as though that is what is happening here or what I want. It's beyond sad. It's downright pathetic.

And now using these kids in this manner is a disgrace.

"Children put in hand cuffs for trying to give Terri water, I am appalled"

I am as well. What a shame....what it boils down to is a 14 year old kid was put in jail trying to give a person a drink.

"Those kids look home-schooled."

I assume that means that they look like they could whip any kid their age in geography, spelling, math, and English?

Or haven't you heard....?

"And now using these kids in this manner is a disgrace."

I actually got into a debate with a woman who said the feeding tube should be pulled from Ms. Schiavo becasue "she's being taken care of with medicaid and medicare and it's a wast of my tax payer dollars".


"And now using these kids in this manner is a disgrace."

Peach we're still all ASSUMING the kid are being used. What if they aren't?
