Kozo, you honestly believe that don`t you? How cute.
Back to the topic on hand, shame to see an elderly man die at the incompetence of the energy company. I mean chingados it`s obviously cold, and you cut off the guy`s energy supply, and there`s no visual signs of a chimney or firewood, then tell me how the heck do you think the old man was going to have warmth without electricity?
The sad thing is that it`s just going to be shrugged off because it seems that he was just a lonely man without any family ties that would bring up a nice lawsuit. How shameful for the electric company to get away with this.
The electric company, however you look at it, DID kill him. When a person does it, we call it manslaughter. When a company does it...
It is NOT their responsibility to ensure other people`s safety. Like every electric company in the world, they are a business. And like every business, when a client doesn`t pay for your service, you no longer provide them with that service. The circumstances of WHY they aren`t paying or the consequences of denying them the service are not the concern or responsibility of the business, but of the client.
It`s not like he didn`t know it was coming. Considering he hadn`t paid his bill for SEVERAL MONTHS, he had likely received numerous past-due notices, which would have included a cutoff date. If he was incapable of managing his own affairs, then he shouldn`t have been living alone.
Yes, it`s horribly sad that he died that way. I`m not trying to deny that. But it is NOT the electric company`s fault, and to suggest that it is is simply ridiculous.
who wants to hear this?
WHAT!? MY WHITE ASS that these guys couldnt have kept this guy`s electricity on. they could have helped him get set up on a payment plan, they could have helped him get public assistance, they could have kept his goddamn heat on. poor bastard.
And the point is that people dont have money because they don`t know how to spend. He does not have 1100 because he did not manage his finances correctly
"This nearly made me cry. So many humans are caring for nothing more than the money in their pockets rather than the well-beings of their fellow humans. This man was old, and a veteran, He deserved much more respect than that."
Ok Miss Nobel, why not donate all your money to charity and live off bare necessities only
I guess there arent too many business majors
A business is a business, not a charity.Client X does not pay for service, Client X does not get service.
Gee I don`t know, maybe you should have left the damn power on till at least spring, bastards!And it`s not an issue of him not being financially secure, (he did have cash on the table along with the bill.) I think it`s more of an issue of not having the mobility to pay it.
I just think it`s very sad that he had no-one who could check on him.
What`s worse is that the man was a living piece of history, and now we have one less of a dwindling number of World War survivors on the planet. There`s a lost man and lost history resulted in this douche baggery from the electric company...
The question is, how much notice did they give him? - if they just cut it off one day then it IS their fault!
funny how some of the people here are "well, he didn`t pay, too bad" - one day you`ll be old...
I don`t know the man, so I don`t know why he wasn`t paying. But the point is, it`s hardly the electric company`s fault for doing their job.
Should cable companies keep your TV and internet on despite the fact you haven`t paid, just because you`re bored? Should phone companies keep your phone on, despite the fact you haven`t paid, just because you want to talk to someone?
It`s kind of ridiculous, really. Sure, it`s sad, but his own fault.
poor guy, i wonder how terrible that must have actually been. Alone and slowly freezing to death.
How can they shut someone of? in WINTER !
i don`t know.
And they called me insensitive.
Honestly... I think it was everyone involved`s fault. I feel very sorry for the man, and the Electric Company needs to do better to prevent this, but I really think a compromise between the two of them would have been best. Like someone before suggested, a payment plan perhaps?
It`s not about government but, a guy freezing to death in his own home.
That`s a pretty narrow-minded view, I mean you`ve already lived longer than the average African kid, so does that mean you won`t mind if we come around and kill you now?
I never once said it was funny, and I certainly didn`t laugh about it. If you look back at my posts you will see that. I`m only trying to say that the cirumstances of his death do not outweigh the fact he lived to be 93 years old.
I am forced to ask why? What do you disagree with and why?
Also his ignorance is showing. Right there in his picture.
Another life claimed by insatiable human greed.
You as well have missed any point that I could have made except for "I`m a d*ck shun me!"
Let me re-iterate. HE WAS 93! And very lucky to have made it that far. Yeah, the electric company f-ed up. But here`s something you should know. It`s not about how you die you moronic piece of sh*t. It`s what you do before you die. And he had 93 f*cking years to do stuff.
He was lucky in his life and to pity him is just stupid.
Aww aren`t you cute? Let`s clear some things up shall we?
1. No, I`m not an, or ignorant, I`m insensitive non-nice individual. 2. Don`t even try to say that a 5 year old kid(for example), freezing to death, isn`t much more disappointing than a 93 year old freezing to death.3. aero has it right for the most part.4. Also, the man didn`t pay his bills, so they turned off his heat correct? As some point, you would think he would say, well golly gee, it`s getting mighty cold in here, might want to do something about it.5. Freezing to death is like going to sleep, it`s a very easy way to go, he probably wanted it. Why? Because he was 93 and f*cking alone! Hence, my previous post.
woooow...what an idiotic and ignorant thing to say. who the f*ck are you to make that call? meh, nevermind. you seem like youre meant for a darwin. hope its sooner rather than later. f*cking prick. :)
Secondly, to repeat some points, while the man was 93 years old, he is not incapable of everything. For example, if he doesn`t have the strength to make a telephone call to a neighbor to come over and light his fireplace for him and keep an eye on him in general then he should be in an old-folks home or whatever the technical term is.No one can come to help him unless he asks for it, because it seemed like no one knew him all that well enough to check on him by themselves. He does need to have some of the blame, here. I know he was old, I know some very (incompetent?) old people, but if he was able to make meals he could have done something. As said as it is that an old man died like this for such a dumb reason, you ca
Riiiiight, because the electric company has a magic button they push just to make your heat work and nothing else. If you don`t pay for the service, you don`t get it. As much as I hate to say it. If the electric company did float him the electricity to heat his home, how many other people would simply stop paying bills knowing they`d get the same treatment, and if they didn`t they could sue the volts off of the Electric company.
And the people at the end of the video complaining about how something should have been done, et cetera make me think their solution would be Robin Hood era tax collectors.
guess someone didnt know how to use the mail box.
sad that he doesnt have anyone that would help him.
Then the moron from the electric company has the nerve to say that.
And this is our current society people. Welcome to reality.
...someone call a waaaaahmbulance.
