The head of the Michigan health department was charged Wednesday with involuntary manslaughter, the highest-ranking member of Gov. Rick Snyder's administration to be snagged in a criminal investigation of Flint's lead-contaminated water.Nick Lyon is accused of failing to alert the public about an outbreak of Legionnaires' disease in the Flint area, which has been linked by some experts to poor water quality in 2014-15. If convicted, he could face up to 15 years in prison.Lyon also is charged with misconduct in office for allegedly obstructing university researchers who are studying if the surge in cases is linked to the Flint River.
It's good that people are being held accountable.It's bad that the water is still poisoned and people are being charged for poisoned water.
Snyder and company deserve everything they get, but this type of problem is present across the USA infrastructure.

I guess a better question would be, what is the over/under on how long it would take to find one?
Around 5 minutes?
Ugh, Puerto Ricans are "our own".
