“Hey Mom I’m Home” She doesn’t give a shit about anybody”

Compare this woman’s charges with the woman from Rudd who is facing 6 felonies and 9 serious misdemeanors. The legal system in Iowa is bizarre to say the least. The woman in Rudd probably just stepped out to go to Wal Mart or something, and she could end up being a Felon for the rest of her life. I understand that care levels should be high to protect our elderly (although I wonder why physicians who prescribe “shut up medications” aren’t held liable in the State’s eyes?)…(750!!)

I wonder if it was worth it just to steal some lousy pills. Now she has lost her job and will have to pay a fine at the least and has it on her record so she will not be able to work in the medical field again. Pretty stupid on her part.
