Will someone please explain to me WHY (warning: has to do with Schiavo)
people are saying stupid things like, "A little boy who didn't even know Terri, loved her so much and knew she was so thirsty that he wanted to bring her a drink of water"????

This was regarding a little boy who was arrested for attempting to get in to give Terri Schiavo a cup of water.

Do these people have ANY brain?? Or are they just completely void of any common sense??

The more I see it on the news (I'm supposed to be on a media blackout, so much for that!), the more I am disgusted.

1. One word: "Indoctrination"
Another word for ya: "Hysteria."

3. No doubt
It's weird because I don't understand the overemotional hype over this. Furthermore it's really hypocritical to me that most of those protesting who talk about the "sanctity of life" are probably (more than likely) for the death penalty. I'll never understand it.

2. Because sick mentally ill people prone to martyrdom have been
salivating for the next 9/11 issue and they believe they have found it in the death of Terri S. Hold on....the crazy relatives have come for a public visit and overstayed their welcome with those of us still sane in the US. Eventually, they'll move on...somewhere.

4. and if some
"little boy" tried to break into a jail to prevent an execution and was arrested, the same people would be cheering and demanding the little bastard be taken away.

These staged arrests are silly.

Can you explain? I'm a bit confused.

6. It's simple
you wait for a news camera to show up, hand your kid a bottle of water, and tell him to go into the hospice, knowing full well it's against the law and he'll be arrested. Make sure the cameraman knows what's going to happen and voila, little Tyler or Jessica is on the evening news, a "victim" of the big bad police.

Personally, I'd like to see parents charged for conspiring to commit a crime.

DCF should be on these parents asses, in my humble opinion.
