1 Was Shellie Zimmerman Wearing A Hoodie???  Sat, Sep 14, 2013 9:53:23pm

Is doing something like that even legal?

Based on news stories from legitimate journalists, here’s what really happened: At 10AM Wednesday, two of the five lines that provide power to downtown Detroit failed. The city started calling their customers to tell them to turn of their AC and reduce power usage to protect the remaining lines. At 12:45PM a third line failed - that was when the city decided to cut the power to public buildings, to protect the remaining 2 lines.

It is in Michigan. The Governor got the power to appoint people in place of elected officials to handle ‘emergencies’.

What’s really odd is that there hasn’t been a peep from the Tea Party about this.

Concur. “They weren’t acting fast enough” doesn’t mean “They needed to be taught a lesson”, what it means is that “Consumption of electricity was still too high, so we had to cut power before the system failed completely”. But of course that won’t be the story to leftists who just want to paint the emergency manager and his staff and ogres and the population of Detroit as helpless victims.

They shut down the entire network with absolutely no warning, not even to law enforcement. People were stuck inside of elevators.

One of the people involved was laughing about it and said “we had to send them a strong message” during an interview and immediately started talking about how the city had to privatize the system.

SoCal has had the exact same thing happen. “cept the Dems have run this state for decades. Now that we have smart meters and a networked system there will always be warning. But any electricity provider will cut power to save damage on their equipment. Lines, transformers etc.

I followed all the links and read all the stories and watched the videos. I also read a bunch of other local news stories about this.

Goleta Park Our Sunday GetawayWe drove 80 miles up to this favorite spot. The weather was nice, the tides accommodating, and the waves calm. Too calm. Instead of ocean and beach, we shot wildlife in the brackish creek.
