On "Crystal Clear Look at the Loving & Murderous Michael Schiavo" (Updated)Topics: Terri Schiavo's Life Counts
Here's a great post about Michael Schiavo that we were made aware of through an email from a reader. (Update: The tip was from the blog NIF)

I have written before about my belief Michael Schiavo's history and pattern of behaviors and actions fit those of the type of an abusive man. Commentators on this blog and other blog(s) who read and view the press renditions and legal decisions by Greer regard Terri's family and friends as disgruntled and motivated to basically say and do anything to stop her murder via starvation and dehydration. I believe some project their own need and belief their own loving spouse knows their wishes best, would act according to their wishes, and would therefore greatly resent any family intervention in a situation like this.
I truly can appreciate the need to avoid unnecessarily villifying Michael Schiavo. I didn't easily come to my decision and choice to indeed villify his actions, behaviors, and especially now... his choice in murdering her. In fact, I found as I went through the early court documents and history of the case, I could see where people would consider it a stretch to even see him possibly guilty of hurting or harming Terri in anyway. His behaviors most certainly were those of a loving and caring husband for quite a while even after she was incapacitated. So how did I bring these loving and kind behaviors into an alignment with those of an abusive and controlling husband?
For a tougher "no punches pulled" take on Michael Schiavo and the murder of Terri, read this previous Hyscience post.
