There is only a little justice, Dr. Maynard should have been convicted of at least 100 counts, and spent the rest of his days in jail.
How many pills do you prescribe for pain? 10, 20, 50, 100 ? Does the patient get to pick the amount and the dosage? Do you get to pick your pill of choice, like picking a flavor of ice cream at the ice cream stand?
Whitman Brown wants us to believe what a good man the doctor is and almost in the same breath call my son a low life drug addict.
It only shows how little he does know of the facts?
When I contacted the Drug Enforcement Agency and told my story, it was stated Dr. Maynard had been in "trouble" before and got out of trouble before.
Why did he keep doing business as usual? How many patients had to die? One, two, five, ten? It seems the death of my son didn't matter. If you wanted pills you saw Dr. Maynard.
After his death you learn the only reason my son Aaron was in St. Thomas was to get pills from the doctor so he could pay his rent. Can you imagine being so sure that your "friend" would front you the money that you would fly 2,000 miles for "Easy Money". You don't know how many times I wished he would have asked me for the money.
Dr. Maynard innocent? Give me a break.
