1. That might be a bit harsh

however I do believe that some time with due process and it's consequences might be in order.

2. Premeditated poisoning of small children deserves the severest consequences...

 

thought I don't believe in the death penalty, he should be sentenced to drink that contaminated water for the rest of his natural life.

4. Per the CDC, this is EPIC levels of bad.

 

"No safe blood lead level in children has been identified. Lead exposure can affect nearly every system in the body." - http://www.cdc.gov/nceh/lead/default.htm


And here are more fun facts, per the CDC, on the danger that the children of Flint are in -

In children, acute exposure to very high levels of lead may produce encephalopathy and other accompanying signs of

ataxia
coma
convulsions
death
hyperirritability
stupor

The BLLs associated with encephalopathy in children vary from study to study, but BLLs of 70-80 g/dL or greater appear to indicate a serious risk (ATSDR 2005).

Even without encephalopathy symptoms, these levels are associated with increased incidences of lasting neurological and behavioral damage (ATSDR 2005).

Children suffer neurological effects at much lower exposure levels.

Neurological effects may begin at low (and, relatively speaking, more widespread) BLLs, at or below 10 g/dL in some cases, and it may not be possible to detect them on clinical examination.
Some studies have found, for example, that for every 10 g/dL increase in BLL, children's IQ was found to be lower by four to seven points (Yule et al., 1981; Schroeder et al., 1985; Fulton et al., 1987; Landsdown et al. 1986; Hawk et al. 1986; Winneke et al. 1990 as cited in AAP 1993).

There is a large body of evidence that associates decrement in IQ performance and other neuropsychological defects with lead exposure.

There is also evidence that attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and hearing impairment in children increase with increasing BLLs, and that lead exposure may disrupt balance and impair peripheral nerve function (ATSDR 2005).

Some of the neurological effects of lead in children may persist into adulthood.


But the adults aren't safe, either, and Heaven help the pregnant women and their babies - go to the link and read more, including how the surviving children are facing everything from permanent disability to mental retardation to future infertility and even death.

http://www.atsdr.cdc.gov/csem/csem.asp?csem=7&po=10

They poisoned the people of the city for over A YEAR, then tried to minimize and cover it up.

I think Cher has the right idea. Poison my kid/ruin their life - yeah, death might be too good for these folks.

10. On TV news tonight.....

someone asked him if he'd allow his children to bathe in the water (his "people" have stated that it's OK for children to bathe with the water as long as they make it quick) and he never answered the question directly.

I suggest we repeatedly dunk him in a vat of this water every day for the remainder of his time in office. Better yet, charge him and remove him from office now.

This is a travesty. Michigan has become an embarrassment.

6. One evil nerd

As a citizen of Michigan I have watched this man systematically create a corrupt political system. Stripping citizens of their local government, installing his "cronies " as City management and then sell the resources all under the guidance of the "nerd". Now the citizens of Flint have been poisoned. This man needs to go to jail. Absolutely EVIL! My only fear now is what city is next on his hit list.

7. Good for Cher...

The over the top rhetoric is forcing the local news here in Michigan to finally cover this story.

9. Exactly!!!

As just asking the news media to cover for months on end the Toxic Water Crisis in Flint for MONTHS, did nothing.

8. There are officials/employees of the privatized water company that should be prosecuted.

 

One offense was failure to use federally mandated anti-corrosive agents in the water system. In fairness to the water company, the a/c agent did cost money and Ricky put them in place to save money.
