Death Culturists Say Michael Schiavo 'Vindicated'

Topics: Commentary

La Shawn Barber responded to Terri Schiavo's autopsy and the related media reports with the following insightful commentary:

According to Terri Schiavo's autopsy report, she was severely brain-damaged. OK.

For me, the whole tragedy surrounding Terri and the people who wanted her dead didn't hinge on how severely brain-damaged she was. She was alive and wasn't on life support, and her husband's credibility was extremely low, too low to trust his assertion that Terri wanted to die if ever severely brain-damaged. Forget about what you'd want if you were ever in the same condition. Take yourselves out of the equation.

The way they killed her was appalling, and I was angry for a long time afterward. I'm giving you a heads-up. Don't be alarmed or disgusted by the liberal media and liberal bloggers (and some conservatives, too) declaring that Terri's wayward husband is somehow "vindicated" by the autopsy report. The doctor-induced starvation was immoral.

Look at the thing itself, to paraphrase a fictional man-eater paraphrasing Marcus Aurelius. What is it in itself? What is its nature, this culture of death?

It is dark, dank, and putrid. And hungry.

He was not vindicated in that report. They need to read the report very carefully. There is a lot of suspicion that is thrown Mikey's way. It is a carefully crafted document that appeases the Felos camp but leaves the way open to make further investigations.

grrrrrrrrr.......this log in thing .....argh...
Hello Ms Maggie...oh, by no means was Michael vindicated.Lolol...if anything, this RENEWS the call for a ' wrongfull death ' lawsuit against him. This renews the calls for HIM to provide some answers to HIS actions and his INactions.

It's high time for Michael to be dragged into the LIGHT, so we can all KNOW what he really did, instead of letting him hide in DARKNESS to gloat over his dirty work.

Speaking of.....Is it true?? Michael STILL has not honored his court order to INFORM the Schindlers of Terri's resting place?
Why.....hold on...I smell Contempt of Court charges! Why, that's Punishable by an Arrest!
WHY!! MICHAEL?? Are YOU DEFYING the LAWS you're so HOTLY hiding behind???

The time is coming Michael......and your room to run and hide, is running out. Perhaps, your death-friend buddies, will be able to help you??
Perhaps not, after all, they have their OWN skins to save...YOU?? You were just a pawn.

I love the light and darkness analogy. As Isaiah said: "The people who walk in darkness have seen a great light" ;-)

Mikey is walking in the darkness of the wicked. Terri's eyes were damaged, and this is something I need to chew over as to why she had damage to her opthalmic nerves. The dehydration caused her to be blind when she died, yet she knew when her friend walked into the room, so I wonder whether she continued to have minimal sight.

Mikey has to provide some answers. He has refused to do any further depositions. He has been caught out in a very big lie (the malpractice lawsuit was a total lie and he knew it). There is room to take him before the courts even at the civil level to answer for his crimes.
