You won’t believe what’s happened to 70,000 residents of Flint.

Resident of Flint speaks on the water crisis. #FlintWaterCrisis

“I wish every movement had someone as articulate and level-headed as this woman to explain both the problem with their situation and what needs to change to fix it.” All of this via Reddit.

“Everybody, especially the politicians, involved with covering this up for so long needs to see the inside of a prison cell. This is ridiculous.

Fun fact: state employees got free bottled water while they continued to tell residents that the water was safe to drink.”

They’ve turned off their water, but…they’re still getting evicted and foreclosed upon.

Even funner fact: GM complained that the water was damaging their car parts so the state paid $400,000 to keep the GM plant on Detroit water.

PS: IIRC prisoners were forced to drink the water, including pregnant women: Source.
