No Winners but there is still The Law.

I note the Medical Practitioner Mother who 'forgot her infant son' and he died in a closed parked car outside her place of work is to be charged in the Wanganui Court on a charge of Manslaughter.

The consensus explanation for her action may well exonerate her of criminal action but it is pretty certain if the mother had been in a pub playing pokies she might well have had the excuses that have already been advanced as a possible explanation but it is unlikely the gambler would  not have been charged.

Unless evidence emerges that could point to a pattern of lack of care there will be absolutely no punishment required, it is unimaginable how any parent could cope with what happened but there is a  dead child and any possible explanation does need to be tested in law as there is a case to be resolved.

It is the Law dammit
