When a city is poisoned

Finally, justice is being served concerning the 2014 lead contaminated water and cases of legionnaires disease that caused deaths and irreparable damage to many in the Michigan city of Flint. The former governor of the state,Rick Snyder, and key members of his administration have been charged…with misdemeanor crimes, not felonies.

 In 2019, a special prosecutor who spent three years leading a criminal investigation of the Flint water scandal, was fired then the state’s prosecutors drop all criminal charges against eight people in the Flint water scandal and pledge to start the investigation from scratch. The state’s attorney general, Dana Nessel, assumes responsibility. Whereas unofficial sources claim that the original investigators were seeking that the ex-governor should be charged with more serious crimes, such as involuntarily manslaughter.
