This show will examine whether the current events unfolding in Flint, MI indicate a mass exodus is imminent. What did Jessie Jackson mean when he said Flint should be considered a crime scene. Why would the city drop property values by 28%, then raise property taxes. Why have the water bills in Flint increased, despite the fact the water is not usable. Why is it being said the city plans to offer low interest loans to Flint residents to fix their own pipes. The very same pipes that were destroyed due to the chemicals the city put in the water supply. In the past some 16,000 residents lost their homes due to tax liens from past due water bills. There was a news tip about Flint water bills given to internet radio show Center Stage today. We were told many Flint residents will soon receive tax liens for unpaid water bills from the years 2014 and 2015. These tax liens if not paid could result in home foreclosures as early as March 2016. Is the city of Flint doing everything they can to force the people off the land. Are they hoping the people will evacuate the city on their own without the financial assistance of the city of Flint. The governor has already spent $2 million dollars for the national guard to pass out water, hired two expensive PR firms and attorneys, however, no clear plan of action on how he plans to remove the lead pipes has been conveyed. If the residents of Flint do not began to speak up for themselves in large numbers, will this become Katrina, Part Two.
