Google Censors TEJ Article Pinellas Taxpayers Paid Michael Schiavo To Watch His Wife Die

Forbidden Article:


    Terri Schindler-Schiavo died on March 31 after struggling to live for 13 days after her nutrition and hydration were withdrawn by order of Pinellas County probate judge George W. Greer following a decade-long legal battle.

    But Pinellas County taxpayers were already paying her estranged husband and guardian, Michael Schiavo for funeral leave which he began taking on March 26, five days before her death.

    Pinellas County taxpayers paid Michael Schiavo nearly $6,100 to watch his wife die.

    According to records obtained by The Empire Journal from the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Department where he is employed as a nurse in the inmate health care division of the Pinellas County Jail, Schiavo was paid for eight days of funeral leave, totaling 64 hours, from March 26 through April 6.

   Schiavo had only been employed at the jail since Oct. 11, 2004, having been hired by former Pinellas County Sheriff Everett Rice just a few weeks before Rice left his post as sheriff to represent District 54 in Florida’s House of Representatives.

   The parents of the brain damaged woman, Mary and Bob Schindler, simply wanted to take their daughter home and care for her. Instead, it appears that not only did Michael Schiavo ask the taxpayers to help pay to kill his wife through years of judicial proceedings, but that the taxpayers paid him to watch her slow, agonizing death by starvation.
