The Terri Schiavo Case: Schiavo Tangled Web Extends to St. Petersburg CollegeTopics: Terri Schiavo's Life Matters
Those now infamous words of Judge George Greer - "The law of this case is that she will die," I'll never forget how bizarre that sounded to me, actually ordering that a disabled woman could not even be given a chance to live but had to be starved and dehydrated to death. But everything about the Terri Schiavo case was bizarre, especially the acts of Michael Schiavo both before and after her death.
But the 'bizarreness' of the case goes beyond just strange - it goes to deceipt, lies and corruption, and it's begining to appear that as the days go by, more and more surfaces about the deceipt of Michael Schiavo. Just a few days ago we learned about Michael's lies about his college degree on his guardianship application, and now we learn that the Empire Journal has found out about the not-so-little "matter of the testimony Schiavo gave under oath at a deposition in November, 1993, in a challenge to his guardianship when he testified that he had been attending St. Petersburg Junior College for "almost two and half years now" and had "just graduated EMT school.""
On his employment application filed with Pinellas County Sheriff's Department in July, 2004, when he applied for the position of jail nurse when Everett Rice was still sheriff, Schiavo said under penalties of perjury that he had attended the college from August, 1992 to August, 1993 and obtained his EMT certificate in 1993.You won't want to miss the rest - keep reading...
According to the college's director of Institutional Advancement, Michael Schiavo was not awarded any college credit certificates and thus did not "graduate from EMT school" as he testified under oath. There is no "EMT School" at St. Petersburg.

In public safety, there's a tendency to refer to people who have completed their training as First Responders, EMTs, and paramedics as having "graduated."
I found the usage of the term a bit annoying and trite, although I also attended a "graduation' ceremony when I completed my EMT-Paramedic Level I class.
While technically correct, this article is pathetic and looks like an attempt to "get" Michael Schiavo by any means possible.

Sounds to me like he got away with murder, which is what we thought in the first place. He also got away with perjury which should have been checked out at that time.
