Ironically, protesters were preventing the company from turning on the water for those who paid or made payment arrangements.

Water protests are the easiest way for deadbeats to seem mainstream. Who can be against water? In practice, these people have deferred the water bill instead of other bills that would not allow delinquency. When the rest of us have to pay the bill, the transfer of resources is actually theft by conversion. The deadbeats can never see this point.

One woman had a $1,000 water bill and was adamant about haw the water should be a right.. Again, the water bill goes with the property so these protestors are homeowners. Shutting off the water is the first step. Foreclosure for the bill should be the next step.

The United Nations say that having fresh potable water is a Human Right.
I suppose you might say almost every necessity could be considered a Human Right. Being alive is a Human Right. With so many people living on this planet who have this Human Right,
we "The Human Race" are doing a very poor job of policing our right to live like a Human Being.

so what does the united nation have to say about animal child or woman abuse? armed robbery? arson, looting, car theft, illegal drug sales ,shooting, killing wounding unarmed citizens of the city you live in?

or do n word people just get to pick and choose which united nations ideas they want to follow and which don't suit them?

what about common sense, consideration for your fellow Detroit citizens children in your hood?

tell ya what n word people get a job get off welfare and you will have plenty of money to pay your water bill and some left over buy your kid an ice cream cone.

stop your whining already you look foolish. real men take care of problems not whine about them
