Should this mother be arrested because her son is 555 pounds at the age of 14?

    I actually is OK if she can take care of him without external intervention. However, if he needs special measures we, the public, will become involved, Then the corporate values of the state will determine the level and type of care he will receive.

    At one time in history what we call obesity was considered a representation of prosperity, meaning that the sedentary could be taken care of because they had the resources to be provided for. If this mother has the resources to meet her son’s needs she can play that hand. However, if not she is where she needs to be. I have not part in that.
