The poor and disabled are dying in the cold in Southern California because Wall Street tycoon Michael Allman is using his position as head of Southern California Gas to cut service to the disabled, requiring payment of oppressive fees and penalties to restore power. Only cash up front is acceptable and this leaves the poor and disabled waiting to die.
Michael Allman is shutting off gas on the disabled. People who are in danger of dying are losing their heat and hot water as Michael Allman strives to increase his pocket change by turning off their gas. Some of these disabled are in serious or critical condition. These people are also losing their hot water, ability to cook food and dry clothes.
Due to tacked on fees and deposits, only large sums of money in cash will restore gas and a chance for life to the disabled.
There is no sympathy for those who have intensive conditions. If someone is recovering from surgery or in critical condition, Allman still won't turn on the gas.
Occupy the Gas Company. Show sympathy. Dispute your gas bill, saying you will not pay money to a bureaucracy that kills disabled the disabled.
