Judicial incompetence or something worse?

From AgapePress:

A spokesperson with the Terri Schindler-Schiavo Foundation says a Florida probate judge is refusing to hear motions filed by the disabled woman's family that could lead to a clarification of her true medical condition.

Pamela Hennessy says on Monday the Schindler family filed numerous motions in their efforts to stop Terri's husband, Michael Schiavo, from removing her feeding tube and causing his estranged wife's death by starvation and dehydration. However, Judge George Greer has flatly refused to hear the motions.

By denying the family's request for a hearing, the judge is "not allowing the family to pursue a new protocol of neurological testing for Terri to determine her true condition," Hennessy says. She feels a fair judge would allow physicians to verify and update the Florida nursing home patient's condition and testify as to whether she is truly in a persistent vegetative state (PVS), as has been alleged.

He wouldn't even hear the motions. Every now and again comes along some one who becomes the embodiment of evil. bin Laden, Hitler, Manson, Jack the Ripper, the list goes back through history. We have three very conspicuous examples in Michael Schiavo, George Felos and George Greer.
