No excuse

The legal powers of Jeb Bush, the emasculated governor of Florida, were clearly spelled out in a re-affirmation of the 2003 memos sent to him by the Thomas More Law Center.

The two letters dated October 15th and 16th point to the constitutional authority of Governor Bush to order the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to investigate violations of criminal laws. The letters cite a number of facts suggesting Terri Schiavo is a victim of domestic abuse and neglect, and may be a victim of domestic violence. Furthermore, the letters point out that officials from the Florida Department of Children and Family Services have the authority to enter the premises where Schiavo is currently being held and remove her if they believe that medical care is necessary to avert a likely risk of death or serious injury. 

The October 15 letter concludes that a growing number of facts establish probable cause to “conduct a full criminal investigation of the circumstances surrounding the disability of Ms. Schiavo. To date, the facts of this case have not yet been viewed through the lens of a criminal investigation. Shamefully, the government’s investigatory resources have not been brought to bear on discovering the truth in this case.” 

It could be argued that if local law enforcement resist state police sent in by Bush, that lives could be lost, but then why wouldn't that be Greer's worry, too? Oh, that's right, Greer has absolutely no respect for life at all.
