Victim of DTE utility shutoff
Video: Wanda Scott tells her story
12 February 2011
In January, the state of Michigan broke into Wanda Scott's home and took away her elderly father, Walter Scott. They said she was neglectful of his health because she could not afford to heat her home, in effect criminalizing her for poverty. In this video, she speaks about life without heat, the experience of losing her father, and why she is a member of the Committee Against Utility Shutoffs.
