Will Pride be the Fall of Judge Greer?

Topics: Legislative Action Items

It was amazing, but today Judge Greer rules that the Florida DCF is not allowed to do its job and investigate the Terri Schiavo matter. He further ruled, against the law, that Terri Schiavo also cannot be fed through natural means. DCF has informed the judge that it cannot impede the investigation and they may even just take her into protective custody anyway.

It might not look so good at first glance. But I see a reason to hope. Fence sitting law makers will be wondering why their laws are being flouted. DCF has authority and they don't take kindly to a judge telling them they shouldn't do it. I'm not sure if it is a matter of being paid off or human pride, but Judge Greer is very obviously wanting to put this woman to death now and in such a flagrant way that can anyone really start to ask questions?

Why can't she be fed naturally?

Why can't DCF investigate?

What are they trying to hide so desperately?

More than anyone else, it will be Judge Greer that will push the tide towards the passage of Florida HB 701 because the legislature will start to see again that there is something going on. Judge Greer didn't rule that Michael can remove the feeding tube, Judge Greer ordered that tube out and that Terri be put to death. He has ordered the cessation of all medical care. He has ordered no attempt be made to feed her naturally. He has ordered that DCF not investigate the claims of abuse.

Contact the Florida Government and tell them to put this fiasco to an end. Tell them to pass HB 701, tell them to give Terri rehabilitation.

I believe absolutely what you wrote far more eloquently than I can this evening. On the one hand any questions about Judge Greer's arrogance should now be moot...on the other hand...it also boggles the mind how clueless this man is in thinking DCF will NOT come in and take protective custody...DCF does not need his Ok to protect Terri OR investigate...they were being respectful and following procedure and good manners in asking for his assistance and giving him a way out of this mess he has helped create...Great post...I feel bad for my brief recess in blogging for Terri but I am back... and will not disappear again if I can at all help it..

"Why can't she be fed naturally?"

Because she can't swallow! She has a brain stem, the cerebrum doesn't exist. It's atrophied to the point that there is nothing but fluid.

Daniel 13:42-48
But Susanna cried aloud: "O eternal God, you know what is hidden and are aware of all things before they come to be:
you know that they have testified falsely against me. Here I am about to die, though I have done none of the things with which these wicked men have charged me."
The Lord heard her prayer.
As she was being led to execution, God stirred up the holy spirit of a young boy named Daniel,
and he cried aloud: "I will have no part in the death of this woman."
All the people turned and asked him, "What is this you are saying?"
He stood in their midst and continued, "Are you such fools, O Israelites! To condemn a woman of Israel without examination and without clear evidence?

We need to take the all mighty, His Magesty, the lord God (In his own mind) Judge Geer out in the woods, tie him to a tree, and let him experience starvation . What a piece of crap. Who does he think he is!? And we wonder why people shoot judges in the courtroom like the one did recently in Georgia. THIS IS WHY. Except the one in georgia didn't deserve to be shot....this one does. He has passed the sentence of death on an innocent person who can't speak for herself. I guess he never heard of " do onto others as you would have them do unto you". If he had, after this "you will do what I say" judgement, he would go into hiding. May God have mercy on his miserable soul.
