  1. 5 days? Skin fused to the chair? Maggot infestation? There is a vast difference between medical maggots and maggots occurring in a filth infested environment. Pardon me while I puke. That poor woman went through hell and the son gets a slap on the wrist. Bah.

    I'm not a doctor, but I'm darn sure it takes more than five days for your skin to fuse to vinyl! Vinyl isn't even porous. I have no problem with the concept that she wished to deny medical attention and die at home. But, to leave her in her own excrement and without care? That's denying her the most basic dignity. It's inhuman.
