No Criminal Charges in the Flint Water Crisis

Nov 13, 2023

The Flint, Michigan Water Crisis began in April of 2014. Because residents pushed for the truth, the State belatedly admitted to the lead in the water in October of 2015.

The attorney general announced last week that there would be no criminal charges. No one is being held accountable for poisoning thousands of people in Flint in this legal system.

A retired GM worker summed it up well, “What we’ve been saying in the community, it’s either been treachery or incompetence. And we as residents of the city of Flint are on the losing end.”
