Besides that, we need to see a lie detector test, too, I think.

Hmmm, trying to think this thru. If a history of abuse is determined, and MS's testimony in all the court proceedings is found to be lies, it could then be deduced that his fight for Terri's "right to die" was to cover up his past abuse, and to bring about her death with malice aforethought.Throw in the other woman and his refusal to get a divorce.
Then the attempted murder would have occured recently enough to prosecute him. Where is Vincent Bugliosi when you need him? It sounds like a decent circumstantial case but I'm not versed in Florida Statutes.

His words exactly were "This should have been INVESTIGATED!" YES!!!!!!!!!!!

It's amazing I think that there never was an investigation of any kind. You'd think there would have been --- a young woman in her 20's with no apparent health problems just suddenly ends up with a severe brain injury. Not long before she was telling a friend she wanted out of the marriage and would divorce if she could find the strength and energy ---- something was going on.

Hey---interesting. I went to sunbiz. and checked out some of the listings for Marjory Schiavo. Her address seems to be an office bldg, 5111 Ocean Blvd, Sarasota, but some of the documents give a different address, 2424 Terry Lane, Sarasota. (There's that "Terry" name again!)
This can't be Michael Schiavo's deceased mother, not all of them. Some documents indicate the corporations go back to the 1960's, some the '80's, but there is one document filed just last Oct 14. She is listed as the corp secretary. (Doc #N03000008948). Corp is "History Out Of The Box."
Where are you going with this? Looking for names, phony corps, hidden assets? Tell me, I'd like to help.

Right now I'm digging up dirt on the hospice and wonder of wonders the particular branch that Terri is in is going to be shut down after her "euthanasia" if it takes place because of RATS and relatives of my "screen name critter". (Don't know if they are actually corals or anything else venomous but that particular hospice has played host to SNAKES as well as RATS according to health inspectors.)

Transcript of Greta's "On the Record" - Schiavo segment - Friday 10-24-03

Greta: And now for a medical condition sparking national controversy, Terri Schiavo, of Florida, has been been in a vegetative state since collapsing in 1990, from what doctors say was a potassium imbalance, that stopped her heart.

Greta: But according to the Orlando Sentinel, Terri's family says a doctor who at their request, reviews Schiavo's medical records, found she was admitted to the emergency room, with a "rigid neck".

Greta: Forensic Pathologist, Dr. Michael Baden joins us from New York.

Dr.Baden: Hi,

Greta: Welcome, Dr. Baden,

Dr.Baden: Hi,

Greta: Dr. Baden, a potassium imbalance... lets first talk about... if you had a potassium deficiency, can that cause the condition that Terri Schiavo had?

Dr.Baden: Umm, CAN, but UNLIKELY.

Dr.Baden: Potassium is very interesting , its probably the most lethal poison we have when it is injected rapidly, and thats why its the poison that kills people in capital punisment by lethal injection.

Dr.Baden: And it stops the heart from beating properly. Too much of it. But also, too little of it, hypo-potassium, can also cause the heart to stop beating properly, and lead to lack of blood flow to the brain, and death of brain cells by lack of oxygen.

Greta: All right, would it, would it...

Dr.Baden: But thats very unusual Greta, extremely unusual.

Greta: A normal healthy woman, ahh, I assume would have no reason for instance, to take potassium supplements unless perhaps she was on a dieuretic, or had some other medication that would cause a potassium depetion. Is that right?

Dr.Baden: That is correct.

Greta: All right. Um, is there any explanation in your mind, and I realize you were not her treating physician, but why would a woman her age have a potassium, umm, imbalance?

Dr.Baden: Extremely unlikely..., unless she had certain kinds of diseases, which she doesn't have. She was in her 20's... the reason she is in the state she is in is because there was a period of time, maybe 5 minutes or 8 minutes when not enough oxygen was going to her brain. That can happen when the heart stops for 5 or 8 minutes, but she had a healthy heart from what we can see.

Dr.Baden: The other thing though...

Greta: (interrupting)

Dr.Baden: I'm sorry, Greta?

Greta: No, go ahead...

Dr.Baden: Your staff has provided me with a bone scan that you guys obtained... ummm, from her initial admission, in 1991 to the hospital. And that bone scan describes her as having a head injury.. thats why she's there..., thats why she's getting a bone scan. And a head injury can cause, umm, can lead to the vegetative state that Schiavo is in now,

Dr.Baden: ...and it does show evidence that there are OTHER injuries, other bone fractures, that are in the healing stage. So thats...

Greta: Alright, alright, let me back up for a second... head injuries... Could she have had, umm, could she have passed out from a potassium imbalance, causing you know, falling, hitting her head, head injury. Is that what you're talking about... or are you suggesting some sort of pre-existing injury to her passing out...

Dr.Baden: Something... something totally different. That its extremely rare, for a 20-year old to have a cardiac arrest, umm, from low potassium, who has no other diseases.

Dr.Baden: So the other issue, is could it have been due to some other cause? which is raised by the family, HAS to be looked at.

Greta: Alright, in the 20 seconds we have left... other injuries... bone injuries... what does that suggest to you?

Dr.Baden: That... some kind of trauma. The trauma could be from an auto accident, the trauma could be from a fall, OR the trauma could be from some kind of a BEATING that she obtained from somebody, somewhere.

Dr.Baden: Umm, its something that SHOULD have been investigated in 1991, when these findings were, ahh... found...

Greta: ...were fresh.

Dr.Baden: yes, And maybe they were. Maybe they were investigated by the police at that time.

Greta: Alright, thats it, Michael Baden, thank you

Dr.Baden: Thank you.

Even if it IS only four years the attempt at "euthanasia" and IMMEDIATE CREMATION OF THE BODY would certainly show that the crime is still in progress. One has to remember the last attempt was only A WEEK AGO through starvation and dehydration NOT four years ago.

I'm going to try and e-mail Larry's show and see if he won't ask Michael why he put the tube in in the first place - he wasn't following her wishes and instructions by doing that 13 years ago then.

Hey, that's a great point! Never thought of that. Way to go!

If there was attempted murder, and the perp conducts actions to complete the act, would the clock be reset?

Let me start by saying that I'm not sure if the 4 yr statute of limitations was for attempted murder. It probably was, but it might also be for domestic violence or some other crime.

The other thing was, about a month or so ago on earlier Terri threads, I remember coming across something in the Florida law that talked about when a disabled person regains abilities, I think the clock may restart on those situations, because it would be considered new evidence. I can't for the life of me remember which statute I was reading, or it's possible I misunderstood what it was referring to. At the time I was looking up stuff about guardianships and also crimes against elderly and disabled persons. For anyone who can help me have a go at it, here is a link to the Florida Laws that can be copy and pasted.

I think it's about a 100% given that Larry King will do a puff piece with Michael Schiavo. It will be a carefully crafted interview that will maximize MS's self-stated "victimhood". We had an advance preview of what we're going to hear tomorrow when he had the media outlets publish his statement on October 20th. As we all said then, you can be sure this statement was written by MS's attorney, fruits'n'flakes Felos. By now, MS has been extremely well-coached by Felos and this interview is undoubtedly a big part of their PR campaign.

In preparation for what we can expect to hear from MS tomorrow, ably assisted by pre-determined softballs from Larry King, here again is Michael's October 20th statement (imagine him tearing up when he says this cr*p):

Statement by Michael Schiavo
TBO.com News ^ | October 20, 2003 | Michael Schiavo

Posted on 10/20/2003 10:11 PM PDT by Auntie Mame

Last Wednesday, my wife's feeding tube was removed. For over 6 years, I have struggled with the Schindlers in court. On Wednesday, I joined them in grief. I understand what the Schindlers are going through at this time. I feel the same loss.

For years after this happened to Terri, I tried desperately to find a cure for her. I went from one doctor to another. Almost all of them told me there was no possibility she would recover. Any doctor that gave me a glimmer of hope that some new treatment or therapy would work was given free reign with Terri. I would do anything to make her well.

I took Terri to California. I stayed with her while doctors performed an experimental procedure to implant electrodes in her brain to stimulate its function. I spent months working with her - hopeful of a cure. Months later, the doctors told me the electrodes were not working.

I took Terri to Mediplex, in Bradenton, Florida, which is a residential rehabilitation facility that specializes in brain injuries. She spent months there in intensive physical, speech, and occupational therapy and testing.

Finally, the doctors and therapist told me and the Schindlers they could do nothing more for her. I hired a private duty aide 8 hours a day to take Terri on outings to parks and museums trying to stimulate her - looking for any sign of life, any flicker of hope. There was none - ever.

Over the years, I had three swallowing tests performed on Terri in the hope that some of the therapies would allow her to be weaned off the feeding tube. The test all showed no change, and I was advised she could not swallow food. Even now, the nursing home staff says that sometimes Terri gags and chokes on the moisture from the swabs they use to moisten her lips.

The reports you heard from nursing home aides that Terri was responsive years ago are not true. I would give anything if they were. Those aides cared for Terri during the time that I was desperately seeking a cure for her. I was so frustrated that I could not help Terri. I am sure that I was sometimes unkind to the aides - even shouted at them. This was not because I wanted Terri dead, but because I desperately wanted her alive. I blamed myself because I could not bring her back.

It seemed to me, during that time, that the aides never did enough for Terri. Some days they did not put her makeup on. I would storm into the nursing home insisting that they do so. I knew Terri always wanted to look her best. Sometimes, the aides did not get her dressed and sitting up until late in the morning. They did not always get her hair combed. They sometimes failed to give her vitamins and medications on time. At each of those failures, I became enraged and lashed out. I felt so helpless. Each small infraction reminded me how powerless I was to really help Terri. I admit that I yelled at the aides and I am now deeply sorry for that behavior. Much like the Schindlers now, I stubbornly resisted and suggestion that Terri was in a persistent vegetative state and would never get better.

I never wanted Terri to die. I still don't. After more than seven years of desperately searching for a cure for Terri, the death of my own mother helped me realize that I was fooling myself. More important, I was hiding behind my hope, and selfishly ignoring Terri's wishes. I wanted my wife to be with me so much that I denied her true condition.

Terri told me on several occasions before this happened that she would not want to live in her current condition. If we had been older, I am sure she would have signed a living will making it clear that she did not to be kept alive on tubes and machines. She never had the chance.

That left me to carry out her wishes. It has been hard. In fact, it is the hardest thing I have ever done. In the end, I did what I believe Terri would have wanted me to do.

Some people do not agree with the decisions the court made to remove Terri's feeding tube. I struggle to accept it myself. But I know in my heart that it is right, and it is what Terri wants. There is no longer any realistic hope of Terri's recovery. Perhaps there never was, but I had to try - just as the Schindlers have tried. The reality is that Terri left us 13 years ago, and none of us can bring her back.

Terri's parents and family may visit with her as much as they choose in the days to come. I, and my friends and relatives, will be there as well to spend time with Terri, as we all grieve. Please pray for us all.

On one of the threads I remember reading that the feeding tube was put in because the nurses requested it for the sake of convenience. If that's true, though, it would imply that Terri had been able to eat from a spoon and the caretakers just didn't want to spend that much time with her? In either case, it is very suspicious!

While that is true, certainly Michael would have remembered Terri's saying "No tubes for me!" at the time of discussing whether or not to put the tube in with the doctor. She should never have been allowed to be on a feeding tube at all. Of course, we all know that at the time of the tube being in, it was still not written in to law that nutrition and hydration would be considered medical intervention (as in artificial life support). It was only upon MS finding Felos or Felos finding MS that the idea that Terri wouldn't want to live like this ever entered into the arena. Michael is lying, or else he let his wife down when he allowed the tube to be put in in the first place.

Even if Michael is 100% positive Terri's hopeless, why can't he just humor her parents and siblings and let them take care of a basket case "empty" body for 50 years if they should so wish.

It's funny how Michael sometimes speaks in the 3rd person about himself... like Felos also does about himself. This sounds like the result of new age space case counseling, not normal conversation.

The right-to-die advocate held a press conference yesterday to counter the rising tide of public outcry against his client's efforts to end Terri's life. The governor's office said it has received more than 165,000 e-mails and thousands of calls in support of Terri and Bush's intervention on her behalf.

"There's a lot of angry people out there over what happened to Terri, and what was done to Terri: being literally, under threat of arrest, yanked from her deathbed and her death process," Felos told reporters at the press conference , according to WFTS. "Just in the last two days, I have received scores of e-mails and calls of outrage over this act. Many people have contacted us offering support, both material and in other ways."

Even tho Larry King is lib-bent, possibly some presssure on him over the weekend may make him think a little? It's worth a chance, cheap to email, no cost.
Also, should we think about sending floriduhvoter and/or pc93, some of the freepers who have been at the vigil for two weeks now a little money/ support.
Maybe a thank-you to them representing us, that they could buy some at-the-scene food/snacks/drinks, FROM US FREEPERS.
It would only take a small amount of money from 100 members@ $3-$5 each to make a fund, small, for temporary vigil needs to those who stand there hours and hours, since we can't be there in person to help.
What fdo you think about this idea, floriduhvoter?
If interested, FRmail me your addy to send a little help.

Larry should change the name of his program to Larry King Dead for the evening. Another prime example of how the major media is feeding the "Right to Murder" agenda.

It's funny how Michael sometimes speaks in the 3rd person about himself... like Felos also does about himself. This sounds like the result of new age space case counseling, not normal conversation.

Yeppers. This "statement from Michael" has Felos' flaky fingerprints all over it. Someone posted a link to Felos' publisher's website in the past few days. In his autobiographical section he listed one of his areas of specialty as image marketing, or something like that.

For anyone planning to write Larry King or call into the show, I think it would be a good idea to prepare some counter-evidence to some of the Schiavo/Felos talking points contained in their statement. That's their story and they're sticking to it. This is what Michael will be saying tomorrow night.

One of the problems is how hard it is to counter their statements about what's been done for Terri's medical or rehabilitative needs. They've stacked the deck by sealing all the medical records.

So, if Michael says "I took Terri to California. I stayed with her while doctors performed an experimental procedure to implant electrodes in her brain to stimulate its function. I spent months working with her - hopeful of a cure. Months later, the doctors told me the electrodes were not working", I don't believe him for a minute. But, how does anyone argue about that when no one has access to her medical records? Terri's parents wouldn't necessarily know if Terri had been taken to Calif because he could say it was during one of those periods when he wouldn't allow them to see her.

How about setting up a Paypal account? I would love to be at the vigil, but my four kids need me here. : ) Next best thing is to support those who CAN be there.

Michael is lying, or else he let his wife down when he allowed the tube to be put in in the first place.

There's little doubt in my mind that Michael's lying about almost everything.

Ideas for Larry King Questions email: (The viewing audience wants to know the truth)

1. Ask Michael Shiavo why he won't disclose yes or no whether or not he has life insurance on Terry? Doesn't even have to say amount, what is he hiding?
2. Ask Michael Shiavo why the feeding tube was put in if he was aware that she "didn't want to live like that"?
3.Ask him why he never mentioned she "didn't want to live like that" until 8 years AFTER she initially entered the hospital?
4. Ask him if he has a reasonable reason for not letting Terri's parents visit her for almost 10 years off and on? And when she had begun to die without food/water?
5. What happened to the promise you made in court (transcript available to verify) that you would spend the $1.3M. malpractice settlement going to school and swearing to "take care of her"?
6. The night she fell to the floor, why did you not begin giving her life support, especially as a medically trained person?
7. On that same evening, why did you not even call 911 for her?
8.Most of all, why can't you allow her parents to care for her like they have begged to do?
9. If you were so aggresive in seeking treatment for her as you claim, why won't you even consider other medical opinions that the parents have obtained, especially from a Nobel Prize nominee?
10. Why would you not even allow her to take last rites after her feeding tubes had been removed?
11. How can you answer why you chose to persue very aggresively her withdrawal of feeding and water, when IN court you swore to use the settlement money, $1.3 M, for "treatment" for her?
12. Can you explain why you also swore in court that doctors had told you she COULD be rehabilitated, and resume possibly a more normal life, which is why you claimed the $1.3 M settlement money for?
13. Can you explain why you refused a substantial amount of money to release Terri,over $1 Million,to her parents care?
I would like to know the answers to these questions, which the media has been incomplete on telling the whole, unbiased story.

Larry King:
I am sure these claims and info can ALL be verified with reading the court documents on their malpractice case, which are public. Also, claims of her parents are public, too.

Freepers, I forgot to add, will you critique this for me for accuracy? I didn't look again at the court docs for accuracy, maybe someone can tell me or suggest any additions, also, I may mail to ALL anchors/newspersons!!!
I think, by keeeping pressure on them, it has a better chance of staying in the media, the bigger the numbers the better!!
They prob don't pay much attention to only small number of complaints about same subject.
What about Rita Cosby? WE could be her "sources, LOL"
Am open to any sugestions to add or delete.
