Judge George Greer and Wife-Beating Cases

For background on George Greer, the Florida judge who has repeatedly denied the Schindlers the permission to care for their daughter, Terri Schiavo, this article in The Empire Journal is worth reading:

When Helene Ball McGee if Dunedin, Fla., turned to Greer for protection against her abusive husband, Bobby Lane McGee in March, 1998, Greer rebuked her plea for help, saying that he wasn't "convinced that her life was in imminent danger."

In asking for the court order, she told Greer that her husband forced himself on her sexually, burned her belongings and said she was possessed by the devil. Greer ruled that she didn't have "enough proof" that her husband was violent because she said he had not been physically violent----yet.

Two weeks later, Helene McGee was dead, stabbed to death.
There's much more. Please read the complete article. Where is NOW on this?
