LAUREL, Md. (ABC7) — Prince George’s County filed a legal case against a Laurel couple in their 90s over a wheelchair ramp in their own home. To avoid legal trouble, the elderly couple’s son tore down the ramp, trapping the woman in her own home. The county permitting department said the family had no permit to build a wheelchair ramp in front of their own home.Let's count the stupidity:
- The County thinks that a 90 year old needs their permission to build a wheel chair ramp that allows them to leave their home.
- The County threatens to jail a 90 year old couple if they don't tear down what is essentially a fire exit.
- The inspector did not find any deficiencies in the ramp itself, but forced the 90 year old couple to tear it down and restart the process because it was the process.
