Key Woman in Flint Lawsuit Murdered in Same Week City Water Foreman Mysteriously Drops Dead
Flint, MI — As Michigan residents watch the scapegoats thrown to the lions to take the blame for the higher ups who are ultimately responsible for the mass poisoning that is taking place in Flint, behind the scenes are some disturbing events unfolding.
Earlier this week it was announced that the Flint water crisis will be investigated and prosecuted as a crime. Immediately after that announcement, the man who ran the city’s treatment plant and two state environmental officials were arrested and charged with felonies, on Wednesday, for allegedly misleading regulators about the poisoned water.
After the arrests, prosecutors promised that there would be more charges coming.
The news of arrests has managed to pacify the nation for the moment. However, it is far from enough. As Truth-Out reports, Governor Snyder has yet to be even questioned on the matter.
The charges come as Michigan’s Republican Governor Rick Snyder said he has not been questioned by prosecutors in connection with the crisis. Protesters have called for Governor Snyder to resign over his handling of the Flint water crisis, which began when the city’s unelected emergency manager, appointed by Governor Snyder, switched the source of the city’s drinking water from the Detroit system to the corrosive Flint River, and the water corroded Flint’s aging pipes, causing lead to leach into the drinking water.
In March, Gov. Snyder, along with a number of other current and former state employees were named as defendants in a slew of lawsuits relating to the poisoning of thousands. In response to the lawsuits, Snyder quickly used taxpayer funds, to the tune of $500,000 to hire attorneys to defend himself.
