Malicious Prosecution

Posted by Rick · June 18th, 2005 · 2 Comments

Gearing up for the next attempt to install a religious leader in the White House, it’s nice to know that this is why we need to maintain a system of laws.

When you have a family of folk who have figured out that by posturing and pretending to be concerned over issues that tweak religious conservatives’ hot buttons, it’s good to know that there are malicious prosecution laws to fall back on.

Here’s hoping that Michael Schiavo finds an attorney who can help him live out the rest of his life on part of the money the Bush family has stolen from the rest of us.

    Have you ever wondered why Michael wanted his wife dead? As soon as posible? A reasonable person may conclude there is something wrong with this picture. Have you ever wondered why he didn’t just divorce her and forget about her, leave the responsibility of her care to her parents?
    How do you think her mother feels right now? She did not want her daughter to be starved to death. Heck, we don’t even starve to death a cat if we can help it.

    “As soon as possible”???

    Were you aware that Terri Schiavo went into a coma in 1990? Wishes that she’d apparently expressed before that time were finally carried out in 2005. Fifteen years hardly seems “as soon as possible” to me.

    As far as the way in which Terri Schiavo’s body eventually died (the brain was gone long before, as an autopsy confirmed), that happens daily in the United States. Individuals and families have feeding tubes removed all the time. When I worked at Kaweah Delta Hospital in Visalia, on the cancer ward, I cared for several patients whose families did the same thing. That’s because, in our nation, families decide these things, not governors or senators pretending to care (but actually just fishing for more right-wing conservative “christian” votes).

    As for wondering “why he didn’t just divorce her and forget about her, leave the responsibility of her care to her parents” — it doesn’t matter that I’ve thought about it, but to answer your question, yes, I have &#8212 it doesn’t matter because I’m not Terri Schiavo, or her husband. And those are the only two people authorized under the law, and morally, to make that decision. And from the testimony given at numerous court appearances, Michael Schiavo fought for exactly what his wife wanted.

    It’s a hideous America we’re growing here. Apparently, it’s no longer acceptable for people to disagree with one another. “The other side” can only disagree because they have some evil intent. Here, Michael Schiavo must be some demonic murderer who only wanted his wife dead, because, after all, he wouldn’t do what you think should have been done, instead of what he believed his wife wanted done.

    How much do you know about Michael, whom you’ve apparently determined had ulterior motives in seeking that his wife should die “as soon as possible”?
