[Media Source*] (Hat Tip: Talking Points Memo)
But they soon afterward backed down!
Hours after a judge ordered that Terri Schiavo wasn't to be removed from her hospice, Florida law enforcement agents were en route to seize her and have her feeding tube reinserted -- but they stopped short when local police told them they would enforce the judge's order, sources said Friday...
"We told them that unless they had the judge with them when they came, they were not going to get in," said a source with the local police.
"The FDLE called to say they were en route to the scene," said an official with the city police who requested anonymity. "When the sheriff's department, and our department, told them they could not enforce their order, they backed off."
Umm...so Jeb, now can you use force?
More from Mercury News:
Participants in the high-stakes test of wills said they believed that the standoff could ultimately have led to a constitutional crisis -- and a confrontation between dueling law enforcement officers.
"There were two sets of law enforcement officers facing off, waiting for the other to blink," said one official with knowledge of Thursday morning's activities.
"It was kind of a showdown on the part of the locals and the state police," the official said.
State officials Friday vigorously denied the notion that any "showdown" occurred.
The Department of Children and Families "directed no such action," said agency official Zoraya Suarez.
Said Bush press officer Jacob DiPietre: "There was no showdown. We were ready to go. We didn't want to break the law. There was a process in place, and we were following the process. The judge had an order, and we were following the order."
Although I can not confirm nor show evidence of this, Mark Dubina may have decided to open his mouth and "talk."
I don't think this will be the last incident of a showdown. Although I don't know exactly what has gone on, I hope Jeb is paying attention to this and get to the bottom of this (whether they can take Terri or not) as many of us bloggers would like to see a conclusion to this matter (hopefully on a good note). More details later...
