cross-posted from my kos diary, but BooMan’s been on the hunt for diaries, so here goes!

Gabriel Keys (foreground) is arrested by police officers for trespassing in Pinellas Park, Florida, March 23, 2005. The young protester attempted to take a glass of water into the Woodside Hospice for the brain-damaged Terri Schiavo. A federal judge rejected a request from the parents of Schiavo to order her feeding tube reinserted, dealing a blow to attempts by the U.S. Congress and the White House to prolong her life.

I saw this picture on Yahoo.  The word disgusted doesn’t quite do justice to how I feel about this.  Many of us have been involved in some sort of civil disobedience at some point in our lives, myself included.  I have never seen, at any protest, a parent put their child forward to be arrested.  There is no excuse for this.  I’m assuming there was some point trying to be made here, but excuse me if I missed it.  Sorry, but allowing your child to get arrested to prove your own political points is kinda shitty.  

Perhaps the Florida Dept. of Children and Families could look into this kid’s parents once they’re done harrassing Mr. Schiavo?
