Schiavo Attorney Lies About Reason for Autopsy

George Felos is securing his future as an attorney that will say and do anything to win one for his client. Of the dozens of lies Felos has been spewing over the past few years, last night's may have been the ultimate whopper.

In a news conference on live national television, Felos stated that he spoke with the medical examiner to arrange an autopsy:

George Felos"We didn't think it was appropriate to talk about an autopsy prior to Mrs. Schiavo's death, but because claims have been made by, I guess, opponents of carrying out her wishes that there was some motive behind the cremation of Mrs. Schiavo we felt it was necessary to make that announcement today."

And of course, the lapdog known as Reuters is lapping this right up:

"The husband of brain-damaged Florida woman Terri Schiavo has ordered an autopsy after she dies to silence allegations his plan to cremate her body is aimed at hiding something, his lawyer said on Monday."

But this is all yet another big, fat lie. Not once did Reuters or the AP mention that the autopsy isn't voluntary at all. Florida law, in fact, requires an autopsy to be performed because the body will be cremated!

Florida Statute Chapter 406, Section 11, Part 1 clearly states, "(1) In any of the following circumstances involving the death of a human being, the medical examiner of the district in which the death occurred or the body was found shall determine the cause of death and shall, for that purpose, make or have performed such examinations, investigations, and autopsies as he or she shall deem necessary or as shall be requested by the state attorney:...(c) When a body is to be cremated, dissected, or buried at sea."

So, no doubt, the public will be duped again by a crafty lawyer. I'm sure most people who saw and read the news coverage will be too busy to do any research and will believe that Michael Schiavo is trying to exonerate himself from any accusations by "volunteering" Terri's body for an unnecessary autopsy. How good the all-American husband must be to get to the bottom of all this, right? He has nothing to hide, right? We'll see.

Gun-Free Zones: The Most Dangerous Places in America

Two more shooting rampages in the past week that began at a Wisconsin hotel church service and an Atlanta courthouse will no doubt bring the gun control fanatics out of the woodwork again to preach to us about the indiscriminate danger of firearms, need for expansion of gun control laws, and the unnecessary insanity the 2nd Amendment brings to our lives. But every time something like this happens, these hypocritical freaks "shoot" themselves in the foot.

Schools, universities, fast food restaurants, post offices, hotels, shopping malls, banks, courthouses. These are the locations of all of the worst shooting rampages in this country in the past two decades. What else do they have in common? Either by established rules or by law, these are all gun-free zones. Yes, these cordoned areas that are liberal utopian wonderlands where everyone is happy to roam free of the worry of gun violence have all been subjected to the worst gun violence imaginable. If you have to ask why, then you have obviously been far outside of the gun control debate for far too long.

Each time these incidents occur, firearm ownership advocates are proven right. We have proclaimed since the beginning of the founding of this nation that the safest and most worry-free lifestyle is one surrounded by firearms. The liberals can give up their only means of self-defense if they want, but political ideologies take a backseat to my family's safety. If you've ever read or heard the typical gun advocates' proclamation that they would continue to arm themselves even if the gun controllers had their way, you can count me in that group as well. To a gun-wielding conservative, the only difference between guns being legal and illegal is the number of people that know about the gun in the top of the closet.

Liberals can try all they want to disarm me and make my family as vulnerable as possible, but this is one man that loves his family a little too much for that.
