Flint Michigan, U.S.A., is a town of 100,000 human beings located about 70 miles from the shores of the largest group of fresh water bodies in the world: the Great Lakes.
Yet its residents can't get clean water from their home faucets.
What is the dollar value of knowingly using poisoned water on innocent victims?
Nearly two years ago, the State of Michigan decided to save money by switching Flint's water supply from Lake Huron (which they were paying the city of Detroit for), to the Flint River, a notorious polluted tributary known to locals for its filth.
And Flint's emergency managers found that switching the city's water system to a cheaper toxic source would save $5 million over two years.
Which is good, because the cost of saving that $5 million in Flint will be very expensive.
It's already cost $6 million to switch the water back, plus fixing the damaged pipes could increase the total expenses to $1.5 billion.
And according to one doctor, those thousands of children with lead poisoning: "These children will be injured for life."
They should be arrested for their criminal acts.
There is a petition being circulated to have those public officials responsible for this tragedy to be held accountable, and if found guilty by a Federal investigation, sent to jail for what they have done.
