HOW MANY OF THEM STILL HAVE CABLE AND INTERNET AND IPHONES AND LAPTOPS AND IPADS?

In April, Detroit set a target of cutting service to 3,000 customers a week who were more than $150 behind on their bills. In May, the water department sent out 46,000 warnings and cut off service to 4,531. The city says that cutting off water is the only way to get people to pay their bills as Detroit tries to emerge from bankruptcy — the utility is currently owed $90 million from customers, and nearly half the city's 300,000 or so accounts are past due.

Its a good idea to turn the water and cable off then. Maybe people will learn if you want those services you have to actually pay for them.

All that drug and hooker money needs to be spent on looking good, not living.

How many? Who knows? Who cares? They might be in phone and cable/internet contracts. Their phones and computers paid for, and doing what they can to become employed again. There's no point in selling a laptop for $50 to pay the water bill for one month when there's no end in sight to your financial problems.
