Benton Harbor mayor purposely leaves city streets unplowed for one week

Benton Harbor Mayor James Hightower is a great supporter of the blood-sucking corporation Whirlpool. The Mayor instructed the snow cleaning team not to clean the streets in Benton Harbor.

A snow emergency is still in place in Benton Harbor to keep people from parking on city streets so plows can get through. Many residents are wondering when their streets will be plowed.

The city is impassible almost everywhere.  Not driveable, and not walkable.  The snow is knee deep.  Ms. Jefferson finally make it out of her home on Benton Ave.  "It's hard to get out of the house.  After a lot of effort, I was able to push snow away from the door and get outside."

She said her street hasn't been plowed since last Sunday's storm and she's stuck at home with no food.  After a week of being inside without food, Ms. Jefferson doesn't feel well.

"It's so cold inside my house, I have ice on the inside of my windows," said Ms. Jefferson.

"No one can come pick you up or bring you anything, because the roads are so bad."  

Mayor James Hightower has a strong bias against the black population in Benton Harbor.  His goal is to protect the Whirlpool Corporation.
