Governor Bush forced to abandon Schiavo rescue

From; Atty. Jack Thompson
As already noted yesterday, Governor Bush blew it. I didn't know just how badly. Get a load of this excerpt from the below extraordinary story! Also, please note that evangelical leader Rev. D. James Kennedy has called upon Bush to seize Schiavo despite the court order. Bush is in deep doo-doo (his dad's term) for his cowardice. He's now under extreme scrutiny by his right-wing religious base.
George Felos, Michael Schiavo's attorney, said he does not think DCF officials knew of the window of opportunity they had created until well after they filed their appeal.

''Frankly, I don't believe when they filed their notice of appeal they realized that that gave them an automatic stay,'' Felos said. ``When we filed our motion to vacate the automatic stay . . .

Jeb Bush had time during this stay to seize Shciavo and reinsert the tube.


Law agencies controlled by Florida Governor Jeb Bush, the brother of US President George Bush, were on their way to seize Terri Schiavo and have her feeding tube reinserted.

But they backed off when local police said they would enforce a judge's ruling allowing the brain-damaged women to die, The Miami Herald has revealed.

Soon after a judge ordered that Mrs Schiavo not be removed from a hospice, a team of Florida state law enforcement agents planned to rescue her on the orders of Mr Bush, the paper said.

But they did not go ahead after it became clear they would have to confront local police outside the Florida hospice that has become a flashpoint in the worldwide debate on euthanasia. To read the rest click HERE.

Tyrannical! Would this whole thing be considered a coup d'etat? No disrespect, but do we actually think DCF would know they had three hours when they can't account for numerous trustee's? I am not the sharpest tool in the shed, but something stinks to high heaven from the Catholic Diocese, conflict of interests, abuse, conspiracy to commit murder, destruction of evidence, to overall weak character. I am not smart, but I have guts, and guts is enough! Hell, Truman dropped the bomb; and the buck stopped!
