Terri Schiavo aided by two previously disinterested parties

From LifeNews:

Attorneys for two media outlets on Wednesday told Circuit Court Judge George Greer that he should make public an 11-page document filed by a state agency that says it wants to investigate allegations that Terri Schiavo was abused.

Media General, which owns The Tampa Tribune and WFLA-TV, filed a lawsuit to obtain a copy of the document that was filed with Judge Greer last week.

The Florida Department of Children and Families had wanted 60 days to conduct an investigation into new allegations that Terri Schiavo was abused or mistreated. Instead, Judge Greer granted Terri's estranged husband Michael permission to take her life via a painful week-long starvation death starting March 18.

During a Wednesday hearing before Judge Greer, DCF attorneys argued that the document should be kept sealed because it would violate the privacy of potential witnesses.

We sure wouldn't want to place the life of one person over the supposed privacy of another, would we. The DCF dropped the ball on this one long ago (The Florida DCF is notorious for abusing their power). I would imagine the “privacy” they are concerned about is in reality their desire to not have their ineptness exposed.
