The Schiavo case was neither the first, nor the worst. This story is absolutely appalling. I believe that all the people involved in this, from the judge down to the nurses who implemented the court order, ought to be tried for murder and locked up forever, or executed. This (if the case has been accurately described) is a true Nuremberg situation, where, no matter what the court said, the law was sufficiently obvious to all concerned, and they had a duty to obey it, and to defy the court order. Therefore, punishing them would not be ex post facto law.
