44. Read the article. She was not truly denied food stamps.

Day 1: she picks up application. They schedule an appointment for the following day.

One Day Later
Day 2: she does not show up.

One Month Later
Day 32: they close the case after not hearing from her for a full month.

Three Months Later
Day 132: she calls to ask why her case was "rejected".

Two Weeks Later
Day 147: they try calling her to say her case was closed because she did not finish filling out the application. But she doesn't answer the phone, and her voicemail is full so they can not leave her a message.

Five Days Later
Day 152: she shows up with a gun, a supervisor spends a couple hours with her, she finally lets him go then shoots her children and kills herself.

"Deny" is the wrong word considering that she never finished the application.
