Rick Snyder, the former governor of Michigan (Jan 2011-Dec 2018) who oversaw the state when a water crisis devastated the city of Flint, has been charged with two counts of willful neglect of duty, according to court records.

The charges are misdemeanors punishable by imprisonment of up to one year or a maximum fine of $1,000. :(


Gov Synder is the person RESPONSIBLE for the tainted water by switching that city's water supply from treated Detroit Water and Sewerage Department water (sourced from Lake Huron and the Detroit River) to the polluted Flint River.
Source: Watch Michael Moore's movie about Flint.

On August 20, 2020, the victims of the water crisis were awarded a combined settlement of $600 million, with 80% going to the families of children affected by the crisis.[26] By November, the settlement grew to $641 million.

So after the Repub leaves office, the tax holders of the state pays his bill. :mad:

but Why did he do it?
Why did he switch the water supply?

Rachel Maddow show January 14 pretty much explained the complete history of what happened and how it happened. And the state laws that republicans who controlled the state of Michigan during that time needed to pass to allow what happened to happen. And now they are facing justice. These republicans never did quite understand that when you poison children, you’re going to face the hand of justice, eventually, Surprise surprise. Poor ex gov Rick Snyder is now retired and he thought that he got away with this. They all believe they got away with this. Surprise surprise.

Barely a slap. Needs jail time that makes a statement, followed by equal amount of community service in Flint
