The Homicidal Judge

Well, folks -- my blood pressure is rising and I am heading for one furious rage. We HAVE to do something about the judges in this country!

Look at this from THE CHRISTIAN POST:
Despite the miraculous recovery story of Sarah Scantlin a 38-year-old woman who awoke from a near-comatose state after 20 years of silence, a Pinellas County judge turned down Friday a request to set aside his order allowing Terri Schiavo's feeding tube to be removed. Circuit Court Judge George Greer's refusal to reconsider his controversial ruling could potentially make the painfully slow death-by-starvation of Schiavo begin as early as February 22.

Dr. James Dobson, the evangelical founder of Focus on the Family, said Scantlin's return should prompt a renewed hope for Terri's future as well.

"Terri Schiavo deserves the same chance at life that Sarah Scantlin was given. Both cases have involved women who suffered debilitating injuries and continued to live in a disabled state. Today we celebrate the news that Ms. Scantlin has regained her memory and ability to speak, and is apparently on the road to recovery," said Dobson, who reiterated his push for the preservation of Shiavo's life.

"Mental disabilities do not damage a person's worth -- the preciousness of life is not defined by one's abilities. Those who suffer a disabling injury are entitled to the same right to life as we all are. Those seeking to take away Mrs. Schiavo's right to life should have second thoughts after hearing Sarah Scantlin's story."

The Schindlers, Terri's parents who have been fighting against husband Michael Schiavo over the custody of their daughter since he tried to legally starve Terry to death for nearly a decade, agreed that Scantlin's story was a hopeful sign for their daughter's fight.

"In light of the miraculous awakening of Miss Sarah Scantlin in Kansas and the success of the new brainwave test reported in the New York Times this week, my daughter deserves to have this test before she is starved to death by judicial decree," said Bob Schindler, father of Terri Schindler Schiavo.

The Schindlers will be traveling to Hutchinson, Kansas to meet with Sara and her family.

Now I'm getting serious about this. Isn't there ANYONE among our readers who can get to President Bush? Surely the President, who has Presidential Pardons at his disposal and some of the best attorneys in the country, could come up with some legal way to save Terri from homicide.

Meanwhile, where's the justice for a murdering judge?
