Governor Bush asks for No Violence

Governor Bush implores Terri Schiavo's supporters not to resort to violence, to stand by while she is tortured and the system works its way along the "legal process". Notice no reference to justice.

No, we should not resort to violence. But, that thought is based on the government to do its job protecting: LIFE, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

People have a right to die, if THEY want to. People do not have a right to murder other people because they want to. This is about right and wrong. If one percent of the allegations against Michael Schivo, Felos and Greer are correct, there is enough factual evidence to send them to prison for life.

What is being asked for is a fair trial to ensure that Terri wants to die and is not being murdered.

I can understand Governor Bush asking people not to resort to violence. That is lovely. But are we to stand by and watch someone being tortured to death by decree of an admittedly prejudiced judge at the request of her admittedly adultrous husband?

Frankly, I do not see how violence could save Terri. I can see how it could be used to punish those who commit the crime and clearly will not even be tried by the state, let alone punished. Sad when the state cares not about the least among us.
