    Picture Emerges of Teen Suicide Pilot CHARLES BISHOP: To some, he was a smart, humorous student, which makes his suicide flight all the more incomprehensible. By CURTIS KRUEGER, KATHERINE GAZELLA and ED QUIOCO © St. Petersburg Times published January 8, 2002 ----------- Charles Bishop was a teacher's dream. He read Shakespeare in class, pulled together a middle school literary magazine and enjoyed a good game of flag football. Friends and family members who knew him best described Charles as a patriot.

    The end of this month marks the anniversary of the judicially-ordered killing of Terri Schiavo, age 41, carried out at the behest of her husband who was living with another woman and his Scientologist lawyer. She was not brain-dead. She could breathe on her own. Yet despite the best efforts of Terri's family and the pro-life and disability-rights communities, the courts ordered Terri Schiavo to be killed by dehydration. Rush Limbaugh described the day as "the day our country hit rock bottom." One year later, it is still an apt description. Terri Schiavo left no written instructions nor a living...

    Terri Schiavo's husband starts a PAC devoted to defeating the Bible-thumping politicians who used his comatose wife as a football. By Michael Scherer Dec. 7, 2005 | At the height of the battle, Michael Schiavo appeared to be a reluctant cultural warrior. His wife, Terri, lay comatose, in her 15th year of vegetative slumber, connected to a feeding tube, but well beyond resuscitation. Around her hospice, a political hurricane swirled. In Terri's name, President George Bush interrupted his vacation, Sen. Bill Frist played doctor from the Senate floor, Florida Gov. Jeb Bush launched a flimsy criminal investigation, and Rep. Tom...

    "It was one of the shortest speeches of Charlie Crist's career, but as a campaign for governor unfolds, it may prove to be one of the most memorable. Two weeks ago, the Republican attorney general and candidate for governor gave a late-night speech to a roomful of lawyers in Miami where he referred to the judges in the Terri Schiavo case as 'heroes.' Crist insists he wasn't endorsing court rulings that prevented the brain-damaged woman's feeding tube from being reconnected, but critics view it differently. And by appearing to break his silence in the Schiavo case, Crist has sharpened the...

    I don’t believe I have some kind of extraordinary spiritual sense, but something alerted me the very first time I saw George Felos, the lawyer responsible for killing Terri Schiavo: Something is deeply wrong with this man. Very deep, and very wrong. I had no such spiritual warning on the radar in viewing Michael Schiavo. He looked like the kind of man who could kill his wife. And he did. On March 31, 2005, he successfully starved and dehydrated Terri Schindler Schiavo to death. Cold-blooded murder, but entirely transparent. Michael was one of those intensely jealous, intensely violent types. In...

CLEARWATER - Terri Schiavo returned to her assisted living home Tuesday after a hurried round of hospital tests were conducted to determine the cause of five puncture marks found on her arms. A toxicology test came back negative, meaning there's no evidence that Schiavo, 40, was secretly injected with a foreign substance. Clearwater police "have found no evidence of a crime and no evidence of an attempted crime," said spokesman Wayne Shelor. And Schiavo's personal doctor, summoned to her bed in...

Felos, a self-styled dying-with-dignity crusader and attorney for Michael Schiavo has a right to his beliefs; a right to lobby and campaign for the death culture.

    There is a perverted, sinister sickness in Michael Schiavo's attorney, George Felos, glamorizing Terri Schiavo's death, saying she looks "beautiful" and is "resting comfortably." Felos' statement is presumptuous, extraordinarily insensitive and powerfully offensive, especially in view of the contrary accounts of Terri's family and their lawyers. They say she is emaciated, her eyes are sunken, her skin is flaking, she's bleeding from the eyes and mouth, and she's desperately trying to cry out for help. Terri's sister, Suzanne Vitadamo, said, "It's like someone who is coming out of a bunker in Auschwitz." Brother Bobby Schindler said, "This is heinous what's...

Felos described having visited Mrs. Schiavo, who at that point had gone eight days without food and water. "Frankly when I saw her . . . she looked beautiful," Felos told the assembled reporters...That's just weird. It turns out that Felos's weirdness goes deeper still. In a 2003 article, Florida Baptist Witness editor James Smith looked at Felos's 2002 book, "Litigation as Spiritual Practice." Felos's views on the "right to die"...

Jeb Bush's request to intervene, received a campaign contribution from the lawyer pressing for the brain-injured woman's death, raising questions of a conflict of interest. According to Florida's Department of State, County Circuit Court Judge George W. Greer received a contribution of $250 for his 2004 re-election campaign from Felos & Felos, the law firm of George Felos. Felos, known as a "right-to-die" advocate, represents Terri Schiavo's estranged husband, Michael Schiavo, who won a court order from Greer to have the woman's life-sustaining feeding tube removed one...

    Terri Schiavo's husband is set to inflict what her grieving relatives charge is the final insult: insisting that her body be cremated against their religious wishes — and then buried in his own family's plot. "They would like to have her body so they can have a Christian Mass and a Christian burial," said Brother Paul O'Donnell, the spiritual adviser to the deeply Roman Catholic family. "They want their daughter. If they can't have her in life, they would hope he'd have compassion and give her in death." But Michael Schiavo refused to budge on the extremely emotional issue as...

    FLORIDA: ASSAULT ON THE COURTS These three articles summarize (warn about?) the insidious legislative attacks on the judiciary in this state. I want to comment further. We saw LEGISLATIVE PREDATORS working on our judiciary during the special January legislative session for the DP Reform Act 2000, we saw it in this most recent session. The change in the wind is becoming stronger, more volatile, more dangerous, and potentially very harmful to the independence, impartiality, and integrity of our judicial system in Florida. [snip]Sadly, the general public does not appreciate the esoterics of what we are seeing. We must speak out....
  • Is Terri dying a Martyr for the Faith? I believe hatred of Catholicism and Christianity is involved

    I know that, strictly speaking, a Christian martyr is one killed for explicitly professing Christ. But I believe Terri is being killed by people who hate Christian beliefs (and hence Christianity), and want to return us to a pre-Christian pagan "ethic." The fact that her family has sent Catholic priests and brothers, and pro-life stalwarts out to speak for them, has intensified the anti-Terry zeal of the culture-of-death supporters in the media and the liberal establishment. If you can judge a martyr by his or her enemies, the demented fiend Felos (who said yesterday that the starving Terri is "beautiful,")...

    After much hard work that has gone on for well over a year, it's been a week and 2 days since Terri has been without food and hydration. Many asking the question how we could have become such a callous society as to deny a helpless human the basic necessity of food and water. Terri's plight has brought to light many problems in the judicial system and opened our eyes to the fact that some laws need to be changed. The work will continue to protect helpless individuals from suffering the same injustice as Terri.

      Litigation as Spiritual Practice by George FelosHoly cow! This lawyer Felos is a New Age nut case. He has somehow perverted yoga and other ancient religions into meshing with the kill'em (the disabled) ethos of Scientology_________ “As a spiritual aspirant for close to twenty-five years with definite monastic tendencies, my friends don’t understand how I survive within the aggressive and often highly negative energies of the courtroom.” (x)“The urge behind this book is to encourage and impel you to utilize your life’s endeavor, whatever it may be, to its highest purpose – to move from making a living...

    <p>"She looked beautiful," attorney George Felos said, emerging from a visit to her room. He claimed that Terri was "resting comfortably."</p> <p>"In all the years I've seen Mrs. Schiavo, I have never seen such a look of peace and beauty upon her," he insisted. Felos's comments were sharply at odds with accounts from her family and their lawyers, who say her eyes are sunken, her skin is flaking and that she's bleeding from the eyes and mouth.</p>

    What Justice System? In a death penalty case, would any judge ignore new evidence in the form of multiple eyewitnesses' testimony which, if true, would prove definitively that the person scheduled for execution did not commit the crime, on the basis that the new evidence was not presented three (3) days earlier? One would hope not. That certainly would not be just. Yet, that is essentially what has occured in the Terri Shiavo case. Judge George Greer was presented multiple affidavits by several eyewitnesses that heard, with their own ears, and saw with their own eyes, Terri Schiavo speaking, responding...
