I've followed the Flint water crisis for years and am happy to hear that those responsible will be held to account. Unfortunately, the harm done to the citizens of Flint is permanent and cannot be undone. Those in power knew for years that they were poisoning the people but refused to acknowledge what was happening. This was a tragedy in the making and all those who stood by and watched it happen are culpable.

DETROIT -- Fifteen people were charged in an investigation of how Flint's water became contaminated with lead in 2014-15 and a related outbreak of Legionnaires' disease.

Seven people pleaded no contest earlier to misdemeanors in deals that will leave them without a criminal record. Charges were dropped against the other eight Thursday when prosecutors announced they were restarting the investigation.

Geez eh?

Look what they did with the Walkerton scandal

Walkerton death toll revised​

The Ontario coroner's office is lowering the number of deaths blamed on the E. coli contamination of Walkerton's drinking water.
The office says the number of dead from the June disaster is now six instead of seven - four direct deaths, and two in which the bacteria was a contributing factor.


...In their plea, they admitted to falsifying reports and Frank admitted to drinking on the job, as a beer fridge did exist at the facility...

...Stan and Frank Koebel were both formally sentenced on December 20, 2004; Stan to one year in jail, and Frank to nine months house arrest.
AND gee...they took away their beer fridge too!
:(

What sad days for responsible government...
