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. REUTERS/Carlos BarriaTen-year-old Gabriel Keys was not the only juvenile arrested today, according to the Mercury News:
I'm thinking there must be some very embarassed police officers in Pinellas Park, Florida, tonight.
About a dozen people, including some children, submitted to arrest after making the symbolic gesture of carrying water toward the hospice.
'Jesus said, `Whatever you do to the least of men, you do for me,' '' said Josie Keys, 14. ``I'm a little nervous, but I think this is what God wants me to do.''
Also arrested were her brothers Cameron, 12, and Gabriel, 10.
