There are so many comments to make on this situation, so many angles to point out: i.e., Wall Street bankrupted Detroit in the first place, water should be (and actually is) free, unemployment is epidemic, inflation is out of control thereby draining the money people might have otherwise used to pay their water bills, etc.
But that’s not what I want to get at in this post. No, I simply want to tell the people of Detroit–and everywhere else this kind of BS happens–you don’t have to put up with this. All it takes is a wrench. In some cases, not even that.
Go out to the street, open up the cover to your water main, and turn your water back on. A wrench actually isn’t even the best tool to do this–I only suggest it because it is the type of tool most people likely already have on hand and can be a workable solution with a little ingenuity.
