OJ managed to convince enough folks in a court of law that he was innocent - framed by the cops. He got away with murder.
Mr. Schiavo managed the same feat.
What makes me so skeptical about Mister Schiavo's CLAIM that his wife would've never wanted to be kept alive in her present condition are two things: (1) he NEVER once mentioned it until AFTER he was awarded nearly ONE MILLION BUCKS for the care of his wife in a trial in which he swore he'd care for her for the rest of her life with the money; and (2) AFTER he got the money (7 years after his wife's "accident") he suddenly remebered her wishes.
HOW EFFING CONVENIENT. HE GETS RID OF HER AND KEEPS THE MONEY!
It is UNDENIABLY true that Mr. Schiavo has something to gain from his wife's passing: THE MONEY! Her parents opnly gain their loved one's life. SO.... WHO DO YOU BELIEVE?!
No matter what the courts have decided I shall always believe that - at thge very least - Mr. Schiavo has acted in bad faith.
This case is also a reminder to EVERYONE that we should all have living wills. This case is a result of Terry Schiavo not having one. If she had had one, then there would be no dispute. Even the Catholic Church recognizes that nobody is required to take every possible intervention to stay alive; they do NOT require that we all opt to use ventillators or feeding tubes. But Terry had none, and now we are asked to believe that she'd rather die than remain alive in her present condition, and we are asked to believe this by a man who has a lot to gain if and when she does die. The same man who has tirelessly worked to see to it that she does die.
THAT'S WHY I DO NOT BELIEVE HIM. I believe her blood relatives have her interests at heart and that her husband does not. And I believe that the courts have let her down - just like they let down OJ's wife.
