FOIA Request Shows Govt Lied About Lead in Water, Knowingly Poisoning Countless Children

Source: Alternet.org

"Michigan state officials knew the city of Flintís water supply was giving children lead poisoning while falsely assuring residents that the water was safe"

Everyone involved needs to be arrested. Knowingly poisoning children.

This can not be "forgotten about" like business as usual.

Imagine if it was a Democrat knowingly poisoning thousands of rich white people's children.

Cosby wouldn't be the lead story on CNN....

2. Lead in the water or lead from cops' bullets. It's all the same for poor people. The .01% who

control everything in America could give two shits.

12. Absolutely spot on. Shocking that the headline is from Alternet.

The headline should state Republican governor. Repukes want to destroy the notion of government as being a force to protect the common good.

4. Lead in water can lower the I.Q.

Therefore I see this as a Republican conspiracy to insure they have plenty of Republican voters for future generations.

5. Impeach Snyder

It didn't work. Too much red in the blue.

6. "Imagine if it was a Democrat knowingly." < making bank$ter/donors richer while leaving millions

 

of families in poverty or as "working poor", after their assets and jobs were raided by the owners of the last three administrations, raising another generation to be worse off than we are.

Imagine it not even showing up on page 26.

8. Funny

When I saw the post topic I immediately though your post was going to be about the water at Camp Lejuene NC. The government knew and lied about it there for years as well. Sadly it seems that the government has a pretty lengthy track record of lying to the citizens about poisonous water/environment conditions.
