Re: Detroit water doom: Mass incarcerations for protesters following shutoffs!
The issues are:

1) Minimal to no warning water is being shut off for as little as 60 day delinquency

2) Proof of shutoff not provided, in the case mentioned arrested for asking questions
 Quoting: RadChick



1) Do delinquent payers deserve a marching band towing a banner that states, "PAY YO BILL, OR YOU'LL GET CUT OFF!" to come down their street?! If someone has not paid the bill in 60 or more days, THEY should know they are delinquent. It is then incumbent upon them to talk with the water company and try to work out a payment plan or alternative (charity) to pay the past due amount. And if they are so irresponsible that they don't, too bad.

2) The proof of shutoff is the company's lock out tag on the line. Is it possible a notice was left? Is it possible this woman got indignant with the worker? Is it possible that in a fit, she grabbed the bucket off the back of the truck? I don't know either way. And I guess no one else knows for sure. Unless it was videotaped. Do you know if it was recorded for proof?

Three days without water and you die. If it's hot and you're active you can cut that number in half or more. Cut off water and prevent proper sewage disposal, and hygene, and you create a potentialy massive public health problem - welcome back to the 19th century. Throw in no due process, no transparency, massive unemployment and poverty, and you've got Hunger Games 2014, with a little seige of Leningrad thrown in for heightened viewer interest and excitement. Then you have Chinese money waiting in the wings, with no doudt massive insider land/trading deals, and the deliberate giving up of soverignity to a potentially hostile state, along with the precedent setting nature of the whole exercise, and it is likely that this is what much of the rest of the USA has to look forward to in the not too distant future. Assuming that the water bills are really not getting paid, something that may or may not be accurate, the problem is not that the bills arn't getting paid, but that people do not have the funds to pay for basic necessities.

I'm not sure if someone already posted this link, but a couple of things stood out!
[link to mobile.nytimes.com]

The department has funds to help those in poverty pay off their accounts, Mr. Latimer said. But one of those funds, with about $1 million, has not been taking on new customers for several months because there had been no one to administer it.

Besides the effort to create a regional authority, Mr. Orr has also been looking into selling the water department or having an outside company manage it. The city put out a request last Friday seeking bids to buy or manage the department, and Mr. Nowling wrote that interest was strong.

“The conditions are meant to shame you, demoralize you, criminalize you and break you down,” Hicks said. She said attorney Alice Jennings intervened to get her released after two days, and that no charges were even brought after her traumatic experience.

Re: Detroit water doom: Mass incarcerations for protesters following shutoffs!
The show must go on, but will it at Detroit’s Masonic Theater?

A shutoff notice is taped to the front door of the historic building for failure to pay its bills. The DTE Energy posting says electric and natural-gas service will be disconnected on or after Sunday unless the account is made current.

“We’re not not paying bills. It’s trying to be timely with the bills,” said Jimmy Romeo, the Masonic’s director of events. “The bill will be paid in the allotted time.”

He said that the private event, which is next on the Masonic calendar, will go on as scheduled tonight.

It takes $3,000 a day to run the Masonic, he added.

According to Romeo, the Detroit Masonic Theater Company who runs the entertainment venue for the Masons inherited the outstanding bills when it took over management of the landmark.

Olympia Entertainment oversaw the Masonic until 2010.

The Ilitch-owned firm disagreed with Romeo, saying in a statement, “The Masonic Temple is a historic jewel in our community and when Olympia Entertainment stepped in back in 2007 to manage the venue, we invested significantly in the operations of the facility, including paying off and restructuring substantial debt on behalf of the non-profit Masonic Temple Association. When our lease agreement with the Masonic Temple Association ended in 2010, all of Olympia's financial responsibilities were current."

DTE Energy said in a written statement that the Masonic Temple has “accrued a substantial unpaid balance and attempts to reach a workable payment arrangement with the facility’s management have been unsuccessful … Facility management has not complied with a recent agreement for partial payment that would prevent shutoff. We continue to talk with the management team.”

The utility also acknowledged the important role the theater plays in Detroit and the surrounding region.

“We recognize the iconic status that the Masonic Temple holds in the community and we regret that a shutoff may be necessary, but in fairness to all of our customers we cannot continue to provide utility services without payment.”

Standing near the nearly-vacant entrance to the theater, Romeo listed some of the famous acts who’ve performed at the masonic over the years, including Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, The Who and the Rolling Stones.

The storied venue is used for weddings along with performances, but Romeo wondered if this threatened utility shut-off will scare away potential brides and concert promoters.

“It’s a concern of ours,” he said.

The 14-story, 1,000-plus-room Masonic Temple at Temple and Second was completed in 1926. According to its Web site, it’s the world’s largest Masonic Temple.

Re: Detroit water doom: Mass incarcerations for protesters following shutoffs!
It makes me sad to see so many Detroit haters.

Although this is off-topic if you ever have been here than you know. Detroit is f*cking awesome. Belle Isle. Eastern Market. Woodward cruising. Cars. Mexican town, better margaritas then even in Mexico. Hamtramck and polish food. Harpos (now this is old but damn that place used to rock!) and the clubs downtown are as good as NYC or anywhere. Boxing, Joe Louis. Tigers, Lions, Red Wings, Pistons. Real people, mostly, The further out you move the faker people get. But the city has alot of hope. There is extraordinary art and architecture, if you know where to look. Its a real melting pot and the weird thing is there is almost no racial shit that goes on between these communities. It's hard to believe that but besides the gang-bangers people for the most part pull together, and get along. Every city has places you avoid, Detroit has more than most, sure. I know I am being nostalgic here. My point is, or rather the point of this thread, Agenda 21 is coming and we will be the first to go. I hoped it wouldn't happen this soon but...the politicians and poor management is what ruined Detroit, not the people.

From this article, if it's TRUE, then it has started.

Please don't hate on Detroit.
 Quoting: RadChick


How can you say Detroit is F*cking awesome. It used to be 40 years ago but it's a gang n*g*r infested hell hole. I was born and raised there, I have seen the N*G*RS take newly built neighborhoods and within 2 years become full of welfare people, gangs, drugs ect.. You can't even sit on your porch without getting shot or mugged. So don't say it's F. awesome. IT'S A LIVING HELL HOLE!

They do need to pay their bills. We had our water shut off once because we were 2 weeks overdue. They are lucky to have 60 days.

The issues are:

1) Minimal to no warning water is being shut off for as little as 60 day delinquency

2) Proof of shutoff not provided, in the case mentioned arrested for asking questions
 Quoting: RadChick



1) Do delinquent payers deserve a marching band towing a banner that states, "PAY YO BILL, OR YOU'LL GET CUT OFF!" to come down their street?! If someone has not paid the bill in 60 or more days, THEY should know they are delinquent. It is then incumbent upon them to talk with the water company and try to work out a payment plan or alternative (charity) to pay the past due amount. And if they are so irresponsible that they don't, too bad.

2) The proof of shutoff is the company's lock out tag on the line. Is it possible a notice was left? Is it possible this woman got indignant with the worker? Is it possible that in a fit, she grabbed the bucket off the back of the truck? I don't know either way. And I guess no one else knows for sure. Unless it was videotaped. Do you know if it was recorded for proof?

Maybe you are too young to remember this. But in the not too distant past, there was no internet.

In the "old days", the only news sources were CBSABCNBC. Then along came CNN. Also, the era of the newspaper was still in effect. So news could be found in NYT, Washington Post, LA Times, AJC, etc...

Then came the first easy access alternative to MSM; Rush. Believe it or not, this was radically different from the aforementioned propagandists. And what did they do? They doubled down and became even bigger tools of the leftists the numbnuts seem to give a pass. And Rush, too, has evolved into a big time cheerleader of the Republicrats.

Thankfully, we have so many alternatives now to the NWO MSM jackasses. But only a fool will get information from one source or group of similar sources. A person who thirsts for truth should look at as many different sources as possible and filter what's REAL from that.

This sounds like an article written by Laquitia who wants sympathy for crying like a bitch after not paying her water bill and getting shut off. Notice she had to bring race into it? Notice that just about everything she said is most likely overexaggerated?

They do need to pay their bills. We had our water shut off once because we were 2 weeks overdue. They are lucky to have 60 days. Some who protest are proably free loaders who want their free OBAMA shit.Everyone has to pay bills on time. Why are they making so much noise when all they have to do is pay on time.

One or a few people not paying water bills isn't likely to be a systemic problem and may just be due to individual issues, however, when large numbers of an urban community aren't able to pay their water bills, assuming this is true, than you have a major systemic problem of which not paying the water bill is simply an effect - in which case, some of the lazy pension sucking city officials need to get off their cans and address the likely causes, i.e, there are no jobs, not enough income in Detroit - you don't turn off the water in mass, which, at the very least puts individuals and the community at risk of disease from lack of hygiene, hydration etc....

How long have these people been overdue. I think 60 days is more then enough time to come up with payment or get shut off. Maybe there just free loaders taking it to the limit and i'm pretty sure they knew they were late on their bill. How can you just rack up 60 days worth of a water bill and not know. Then say, OMG they shut off my water. Please. No excuse. They knew it was coming and pushed it to the limit and now are cryin wolf. They had 60 days to try to get help to pay their bill, but they didn't.
