Now You Know

No, by the grace of God, you will NOT plead ignorance. You will NOT testify that you never knew any better because no one ever taught you anything better. You will not plead that you were never told.

Police Presence Increased as Schiavo's Life Ebbs Away


Jeb Bush has tucked his tail between his legs, and I'm not talking about the tail in front. Meanwhile, the MSM's much vaunted "rule of law" takes precedence in the cold-blooded murder of Terri Schindler-Schiavo. Fortunately, photographers were on hand in front of the Hospice in Pinellas Park, Florida to capture on film the above photo of the increased police presence:

"Police presence increased as Schiavo's life ebbs away

As Terri Schiavo's life ebbed away in a Florida hospice yesterday, the police presence around the building was increased, with snipers on the roof, armed officers patrolling the grounds and police vehicles blocking each entrance, writes Conor O'Clery in New York.

The parents of the brain-damaged woman, whose feeding tube was removed 10 days ago despite their objections, asked supporters to return home to spend Easter with their families. However, crowds of sympathisers continued to congregate outside, offering prayers for the 41-year-old woman.

The extra police presence coincided with a report in the Miami Herald that said a team of state law agents was prepared at one point to seize Ms Schiavo, hours after a judge ordered that she was not to be removed from the hospice.

The agents from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement were allegedly acting under the direction of the State Department of Children and Families, and had set out to the hospice in Pinellas Park to remove her to a hospital and have the feeding tube reinserted.

They were said to be acting under a legal exemption that allows a judge's order to be frozen when appealed by an agency. Pinellas Park police told them they would enforce the judge's order, the Herald said, quoting police sources, and the agents backed down rather than force their way in.

After the incident Florida governor Jeb Bush, who has been under intense pressure to act to prolong Ms Schiavo's life, said he did not have the legal authority to take her into protective custody.

State officials denied that any showdown had occurred. However, the prospect of a confrontation between two branches of law enforcement underscores the intense emotions generated by the case and the dangers of a full-blown constitutional crisis. Armed police officers at the scene told The Irish Times on Thursday they were ready for "any eventuality" but declined to go into details. . ."

After which the police presence clicked their heels smartly and gave a rousing "Heil, Greer!" as the changing of the guard performed with fine and much-applauded synchronized goose-stepping, as some headed to the Biergarten while others made for the crematoria chanting "Arbeit Macht Frei!"

Ain't America grand? Long live the F├╝hrer and the Fatherland!
