If only my sister were a convicted murdererTopics: Bobby Schindler
As the mainstream media editorialize outgoing Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, I can't help but compare their opposition to the 34-minute execution of convicted killer Angel Diaz with their support of the 14-day execution of my sister, Terri Schiavo....
Orlando Sentinel, 12-28-06
[Gov. Jeb Bush's] intervention in the Terri Schiavo fiasco, without even talking to her husband, was unconscionable.
Miami Herald, 1-8-07
It will be difficult for the public to forget [Bush's] disgraceful performance in the Terri Schiavo case, just one of a number of legal battles in which the ACLU engaged his administration because of his posture that public policy "should err on the side of life.''

Gov. Jeb Bush was correct to impose a hold on death warrants in Florida following the gruesome execution of Angel Diaz.....
Orlando Sentinel , 12-31-06
... Mr. Bush... insisted on intervening in the case of brain-damaged Terri Schiavo.

Article title: "Doctors: Botched execution likely slow, painful"
Tampa Tribune, 1-31-07
Family members - and later state lawmakers, with Bush's support - tried to force [Terri's] sustenance. Courts stopped the Legislature, and later Bush, from ordering a feeding tube reinserted..... Despite overwhelming public distaste over the government's intervention - by a 2-1 ratio in one poll - Bush remains unrepentant.
I don't believe in the deliberate killing of any human being.
But if the press is so worried about cruel and unusual punishment of convicted murderers by lethal injection, perhaps they would consider it better to starve and dehydrate them to death.
Because as the press constantly reminded us, death by dehydration and starvation of innocent disabled people who have committed no crime is a "peaceful and painless" way to die.
