A blot on humanity

People who prey on the less fortunate are despicable. Yes, they're entitled to their day in court. But people like Nancie Fisher of Stafford, charged with acting as a nurse without a license and faking expertise in autism counseling, deserve swift justice and maximum penalties.

Fisher took care of a Point Pleasant woman paralyzed from the chest down, even though she had no right to do it. "I entrusted my body to her care,'' the woman said. Fisher was paid $125 an hour by a Barnegat family to advocate for their autistic children, after convincing the family she had credentials she never earned.

These families, and so many like them, need care and compassion. The last thing they need is to have their faith in mankind shaken by an encounter with a fraud.

Poor Nancie, she chose the wrong occupation as far as fraud is concerned.If she was an elected official she could have three part time jobs and three pensions to go with it.
