Victim of DTE utility shutoff
Video: Wanda Scott tells her story

In January, the state of Michigan broke into Wanda Scott's home and took away her elderly father, Walter Scott.

In this video, she speaks about life without heat, the experience of losing her father, and why she is a member of the Committee Against Utility Shutoffs.
