Schiavo judge honored by local ACLU as "Friend of Civil Liberties"

Proving yet again that the legal culture in Pinellas County, Florida is twisted beyond belief, now we find out that the local chapter of the ACLU has named Judge George Greer as this year's recipient of its "Gardner W. Beckett, Jr., Friend of Civil Liberties Award":
The Pinellas County Chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union confers this honor upon individuals who have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to basic civil liberties, principles, and values inherent in the Bill of Rights. In the footsteps of Gardner Beckett, these recipients exemplify an unflinching commitment to the defense of our constitution and it's guarantees of equal protection, due process, and simple justice.
Of course, "equal protection, due process and simple justice" in Terri Schiavo's case involved Greer doing everything in his power to have her put to death, even if it meant doing so using a technique banned as torture by civilized nations everywhere.
