    Perhaps. She had lead a full life however and was not robbed of much time; similar depravity visited on someone younger should be viewed as being far more despicable. if there is prosecution of anyone, the first move by the defense attorney will be to get the case heard by a judge who is young rather than old.

    Toth, I agree with you in alot of areas, but I don't think that this is made any easier by the fact that she was older. In fact, it makes it more heinous! Babies and elderly cannot seriously defend themselves! What a coward to do this to a woman that could not fight back! It's disgusting!

    Some pediatricians feel they get a better "return on investment" than gerontologists do. Often rationing of health care acknowledges a view of such things as ability to later pay taxes to repay the community, etc. I am not advocating open season on the elderly (or the young), merely pointing out what a defense attorney would first do. Theft of one hundred dollars is wrong, so is theft of Five hundred dollars, but we have different categories for such things. Burglary during the daytime is punished less harshly than burglary during the night time.
    I'm sure the 97 year old woman did not relish being robbed of whatever short time remained to her.
