    Default Flint Water Lead Poisoning - Jail Snyder

    State of: Michigan
    It seems Republican Rick Snyder's war on the middle class backfired, this guy needs to be stopped and put in jail.

    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.
    http://www.democracynow.org/2016/1/8...ected_official

    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
    By snipy - January 6, 2016 - 9:30am
    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.

    Being familiar with the area, before there was the auto industry, there was other industry (Dort Wagon, forebear to General Motors, among others, going back to the mid/late 1800's) that had their factories along the river and ALL the waste was dumped into the Flint River LONG before any safety regulations were in place. The river had been polluted by industry for decades, so much so, Flint had started buying its water from Detroit. The current problem had to do with politics and the lack of "public funds" to buy water (Look for all the people in Detroit having thier water cut off for non-payment of bills, demanding thier water service for FREE) and so they started pumping out of the Flint River, instead of getting water from Lake Huron.

    That being said, I have no love for the billionaire politicians. Just that THIS problem had existed for LONG before the current political games over blame started.

    Exactly, so why did Snyder switch water sources knowing the water was polluted?
    You can bet if there was a lack of funds to buy water for Ann Arbor, Snyder wouldn't be pumping water from the Flint River.
    He would raise taxes on the middle class with some elaborate scheme like he did with the highway funds.

    The problem of Lead poisoning started when Snyder hijacked Michigan's democracy and installed his puppets to manage city services.
    They switched water sources during Snyder's reign of terror under the direction of one of his puppets (not an elected official)
    So don't try spreading fault and try to claim others made this deadly decision - it was Snyder and no one else, it's his baby and he needs to go to jail.

    This isn't a "political game"
    This is a disaster caused by an out of control Tea Nut trying to rape Michigan of every dime he can grab - even if it means the death of babies.
    Don't even try defending this act described as “so egregious and so outrageous that it shocks the conscience,” by officials.
    Nice Try.

    Demands for the resignation and arrest of Michigan Governor Rick Snyder are intensifying after internal emails surfaced showing high-level staffers were aware of the lead levels in the city of Flint’s water supply six months before the state of emergency was declared.

    Looks like the heat's on Snyder, he's trying like hell to double talk and spin his way out of responsibility, so far - no luck.

    Got to give it to this con, he's an expert at double talk, spin and evasion.
    He had the gull to say "this is a beautiful day for the citizens of Michigan" when he finally declared Flint a disaster zone and requested Federal Aid.
    He actually believes the citizens of Flint should be grateful to him for applying for aid two years after he poisoned them to save a dollar - seriously, I'm not joking.
    Yeah, real beautiful day, I bet the rest of America wishes they where that lucky.

    Flint water crisis: Michigan attorney general to investigate
    Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette said Friday he will investigate the water crisis to determine whether any Michigan laws have been violated.
    "The situation in Flint is a human tragedy in which families are struggling with even the most basic parts of daily life," Schuette said in a statement. "While everyone acknowledges that mistakes were made, my duty as attorney general requires that I conduct this investigation."

    Does this guy seriously believe he can poison the water supply of a major metropolitan area and get away with a mere apology, spin job or double talk?
    If this was anyone else on planet earth, they would be in jail on a terrorism charge and held without bond.
    Don't believe me? Just try poisoning your local water supply intentionally (like this case) by negligence or by accident and see what happens.

    Water and terrorism
    Peter H. Gleick
    How severe is the threat?
    From source to tap our water supplies are vulnerable. Water is vulnerable to various types of attack from a denial of service by blowing up supply lines to an intentional contamination event. Intentional contamination of the water supply is the most serious of the possible scenarios. Studies conducted by the U.S. Air Force and Colorado State University have shown that drinking water systems are highly vulnerable to contamination.5 These studies show a few gallons of highly toxic material was enough, if injected at a strategic location via the proper method, to contaminate an entire system supplying a population of 100,000 people in a matter of a few hours. Material and significant contamination was not relegated to only the areas surrounding the introduction point. Material flowed through each neighborhood and then reentered main trunk lines, thus, making its way to the next area until the contaminant had permeated the entire system.

    I won't waste time updating this thread on the obvious.

    This guy's completely disconnected from reality.
    He needs to be arrested and have a mental evaluation to see if he's competent to stand trial for public endangerment.

    Here's Snyder's e-mails - I love how some pages are blacked out.
    http://www.scribd.com/doc/296110751/...t-water-crisis

    Here's the relevant stuff, he knew back in early October he was poisoning the citizens of Flint.
    http://www.detroitnews.com/story/new...ails/79062418/

    I love how these Tea Nuts claim the Federal Government and Obama have no place in the decisions of the state - then run to Obama when they create a disaster.
    Someone explain why the tax payers should pay for Rick Snyder's crime?
    He claims he takes full responsibility - well then get out your check book and start writing.

    My hat goes off to Mr. Cartwright, brilliant job of exposing this money grabbing liar for the con he is - perfect job!!

    This would be my dream come true, I'd love to have five minutes to drill this clown.
    Absolutely hilarious, anyone with a dimes worth of pride or consideration for the public good would've resigned day one.
    The fact that this con man's still denying and lying speaks for his mental state and character - he needs to go to jail.

    Notice the way this stuttering liar answers the simplest of questions (yes or no) with complicated, double ended answers - that alone is self incrimination.



    I love the way this conman tries to divert attention from himself by saying he's focused on fixing the problem, not looking back. (he's a hero)
    That's like OJ Simpson saying he's focused on finding the killer and starting a domestic assault center.
    It's the oldest blur and distract in the book, all criminals try this stunt - it's a sign of guilt.

    "Plausible deniability only works when it's plausible " - I love it.
    Jail conman Snyder!!

    This guy's too arrogant and self serving to do the right thing and resign, the people need to take action and recall him.
    Hopefully this recall petition will be followed with a criminal prosecution.
    Snyder says the recall effort is part of the democratic process and he's focused on fixing the problem. (in other words, covering up his crime)

    He had years to fix the problem and completely ignored it until it became his problem.
    He could care less about the people of Flint, he's trying to save himself.
    He is the problem - he needs to be recalled and put in jail!

    Michigan residents begin recall petition drive against Gov. Snyder over Flint water crisis
    Published time: 28 Mar, 2016 15:46
    Edited time: 28 Mar, 2016 15:53

    Michigan organizers behind a new petition seeking to recall Republican Governor Rick Snyder over the Flint water crisis have begun collecting signatures for their effort.
    The petition drive began Sunday, but while Snyder has been heavily criticized over his administration’s handling of the Flint water crisis, recall organizers will have to move quickly if their initiative is to have any chance of success.

    Organizers will have only 60 days to gather 790,000 valid signatures from registered voters if they want the recall to make it on the ballot this November, the Associated Press reported. That’s significantly more than the roughly 252,000 signatures needed to put a policy proposal up for consideration.
