Poisoned Democracy: How an Unelected Official Contaminated Flint's Water to Save Money
In Flint, Michigan, a growing number of residents are demanding the arrest of Governor Rick Snyder over the ongoing water contamination crisis.
While Governor Snyder was busy dismantling Michigan's Worker Compensation System, Hijacking Michigan's Democracy, Billing tax payers for the damage caused by the trucking industry to Michigan's roads, Giving tax breaks to billion dollar corporations and destroying Public Education - he was poisoning the citizens of Flint.
This guy blatantly ignored this public health hazard for months, knowing dam well he was endangering public safety by switching to a cheaper water source.
We know Snyder would never consider doing such a thing in Ann Arbor, his home town.

In Flint, Mich., there’s so much lead in children’s blood that a state of emergency is declared
By Yanan Wang December 15, 2015
Parents and other Flint residents filed a class-action federal lawsuit against Snyder, the state, the city and 13 other public officials in November for the damages they have suffered as a result of the lead-tainted water. The suit, which claims to represent “tens of thousands of residents,” alleges that the city and state officials “deliberately deprived” them of their 14th Amendment rights by replacing formerly safe drinking water with a cheaper alternative that was known to be highly toxic.
“For more than 18 months, state and local government officials ignored irrefutable evidence that the water pumped from the Flint River exposed [residents] to extreme toxicity,” the complaint reads. “The deliberately false denials about the safety of the Flint River water was as deadly as it was arrogant.”
Calling officials’ conduct “so egregious and so outrageous that it shocks the conscience,”
Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder Finally Decides Flint Residents Drinking Lead Not Such A Great Idea

Late last year, comically bad Gov. Snyder roused himself from a winter slumber to fully investigate the matter find a fall guy and allow his Department of Environmental Quality Director Dan Wyant to be quit-fired and spend more time with his family. Weirdly, people did not really feel like that fixed the problem of how they were drinking lead!
Michigan Governor Rick Snyder Poisons Flint Kids And Then Declares An Emergency
It is likely that ten years ago if an American was told that a state’s governor unilaterally abolished democracy and disbanded local and regional governments they would think it was a dirty lie. Oh, it is certainly true that Republicans and their various conservative belief tanks and the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) made no secret that they vehemently oppose democracy over the past six years, but they never unilaterally disbanded and deleted elected governments; except in Michigan.
