Torture is a Crime

Topics: Remembering Terri

On March 20, 2005, Andrew McCarthy wrote, "Is Prosecution the Solution? Terri Schiavo is being tortured, torture is a crime, therefore... "

... It is time to ask: What is the legal rationale for the judicial allowance of torture in Terri Schiavo's case? If there isn't one: (a) Why is it happening, and (b) Why isn't someone in handcuffs?

It seems to be in the interest of some that the terrorists aren't tortured, while in our custody. Yet, our own system allowed for ONE judge, lawyers and an estranged husband (I should add adulterer!) to torture a woman unable to defend herself, by saying, without any evidence from her, that she had said she wouldn't want to live like that.

I've also wondered why the Judge wasn't kicked out, and kept from presiding over this case.
