I am going out on a limb here...
I UNDERSTOOD THE WOMAN SPEAKING TO THE QUESTION OF AUTHORITY OF DCF TAKING TERRI INTO CUSTODY TO SAY THAT AS IT STANDS NOW, THEY HAVE AUTHORITY. GOVERNOR BUSH STATED IT IS HIS DECISION!!!
SEE FOR YOURSELF!
Florida Statutes, Article 415.1051
(2) EMERGENCY PROTECTIVE SERVICES INTERVENTION.--If the department has reasonable cause to believe that a vulnerable adult is suffering from abuse or neglect that presents a risk of death or serious physical injury to the vulnerable adult and that the vulnerable adult lacks the capacity to consent to emergency protective services, the department may take action under this subsection. If the vulnerable adult has the capacity to consent and refuses consent to emergency protective services, emergency protective services may not be provided.
