woman left disabled son to die in trailer
« on: April 01, 2006, 11:36:42 PM »
Woman left her son with celeby palsy to die in a trailer, locked the doors and boarded the windows.  After 17 days a neighbor called and police rescued him, he was wearing an adult diaper that hadn't been changed for weeks.  They are looking for the mother. Neighbor who called the police said the boy (he was 27) most have almost frozen to death and that the mother should be hanged. 

I agree the mother should go to jail, but am I have some sympathy for her.  She obviously raised her son for 27 years, I am sure that was hard as hell, she obviously wouldn't have done it if she didn't love him, my guess is she snapped.  Same time what she did was heinous.  What do you guys think?

Wasn't this a "Law & Order" episode?

She should go to jail for a few years. All she had to do was ask for help or at least turn him over to the state or a charity.

Thou, you don't abandon people you love, but you're right if you imply she may have loved him at one time or even still loves him but thought it was better he died. If the latter, she should've killed him and willingly went to jail for it.
