OUTRAGE: Bay City Michigan Shuts Off Power to 93 year Old WWII Vet – Hero Found Dead With Money Clipped to Bill in Home!

Posted by iusbvision on January 27, 2009

The city run electric company was not following state rules for safety. The city put the device on his home that cut his power before the final notice was put on his door. No attempt was made to make personal contact with the victim.

The full story and a video report is HERE.

BAY CITY, Mich. — TV5 and WNEM.com has learned about new circumstances surrounding Marvin Schur’s death.

A limiter on Schur’s electric meter is being blamed for the man’s death. Now Bay City said it will notify customers before their power is shut off.

Michigan’s Attorney General Mike Cox said Tuesday he would review the case.

One local lawyer said the question remains: Who is accountable in the war veteran’s death?

Ed Czuprynski, a constitutional attorney, said the city could be liable. “I really think it’s a disgusting situation and it’s a shame that Bay City is put beneath this light.”

Czuprynski said Bay City could be liable for Schur’s death.

It was 32 degrees inside Schur’s house when neighbors found his body.

Bay City Electric Light and Power sent Schur a shutoff notice through the mail a few weeks ago.

Then crews placed a shutoff notice on his front door. A few days later, Schur was found by neighbors.

Bay City Electric Light and Power, which is owned by the city, said a limiter was placed on Schur’s electrical line.

The device limits the power that reaches a home, and it blows out like a fuse if power consumption rises past a set level.

The manager of Bay City said the limiter was tripped sometime between the time of installation and the discovery of the man’s body.

National healthcare anyone?
