    Your comment's disgusting. You're celebrating about 3 people killed for having your taxes less burdened?

    If you'd read the articles/done a little googling you wouldn't have made such a hackish remark.

    Thanks for the research. Sounds like excessive red tape to me. Apparently she was qualified to receive food stamps, but the beaurocracy got to her. If you are poor, do you have time to answer a phone? What does a phone have to do with food stamps?

    Reminds me of he movie The Intruders.

    What do you define as 'excessive? Do you even know what paperwork she did or didnt have or why when she applied in July (initially) she waited til Augst then failed to make her appointment in August? 334,000 people in Texas have figured out the excessive red tape and if she isnt working, then she would have plenty of time to figure out the process. Sometimes its not enough to roll over on your back and kick and scream about how unfair life is. I dont know what she may or may not have done from July to November...do you? Just wondering how you define the process as 'excessive'.

    She didn't provide the required information to determine whether or not she qualified. HHS made several attempts to contact her regarding the issue and she did not reciprocate. It's hardly excessive to be expected to provide general information. If I recall, the application requires the names and social security numbers of all dependents, the applicant's name and social security number, employment information, proof of residency, and references. Hardly "excessive" red-tape.

    As far as the phone goes, how else were they supposed to contact her? You think tax dollars are well spent driving around trying to catch her at home over an application SHE failed to complete?

    Just a cursory examination shows 24 food and social services providers in Laredo Texas alone. That doesnt count the added religion specific resources (Catholic Community Services, LDS Social Services, etc). Additionally there are 1,519 jobs currently listed as available in Laredo ranging from Janitorial work, food service, call centers, convenience stores, etc.

    Both Children have now passed. RIP


    "Timothy Grimmer died Thursday evening at a San Antonio hospital after he was removed from life support, Laredo police investigator Joe Baeza said. His sister Ramie, 12, who authorities say was also shot by mother Rachelle Grimmer, died Wednesday night at the same hospital."
