Many In Flint Question Whether They'll Get Justice For Water Crisis

"According to multiple media reports michigan's former governor and other officials will be charged in relation to the flint water crisis seven years ago despite possible criminal charges. A lot of residents still question. Whether those officials will be held accountable. Michigan radio steve carmody reports. Nearly seven years ago government leaders here push the button that switch the city of flint drinking water source from detroit's water system to the flint river flag. The intent was to save money. The result was a complete disaster treated river water damage to pipes which then released lead and other contaminants into the city's drinking water eighteen months later. The water was switched back but the damage was done. Blood lead levels soared in young children. People were forced to use bottled water for drinking and washing clothes. The city was forced to rip out thousands of old pipes while testifying about the flint water crisis before congress. Four years ago former governor. Rick snyder acknowledged mistakes. State and federal officials failed the families of flint. Snyder was not among the fifteen state and local government officials face criminal charges for their handling of the crisis half of them pled guilty to lesser charges in exchange for no jail time and in two thousand nineteen michigan's new attorney general dropped charges against the remaining defendants citing problems with the original investigation. The investigation seemed over until yesterday when the associated press reported that several former government officials including former governor snyder. We'll be facing new charges. If that happens. Legal experts say it would be difficult case for prosecutors. Peter hammer teaches law at wayne state university in detroit. He says despite possible difficulty getting convictions. It's important to bring charges especially in an era where we're living where people are not being held accountable. This could be an important statement about the significance of the rule of law and that not even the highest public official in the state is going to get off. Scot-free a spokeswoman for former governor. Rick snyder calls the reports of impending charges a public relations smear campaign saying that if brought they would be meritless since during eighteen months of foul-smelling dirty tap water that made them sick flint residents have demanded justice and compensation a us district court. Judge is expected to decide in the coming days if she will give preliminary approval to a massive settlement agreement resolving most of the thousands of outstanding lawsuits last year. The state of michigan announced. It struck a deal with attorneys representing flint residents to pay six hundred million dollars into a settlement fund. A few months later the city of fled a local hospital and an engineering firm agreed to chip in another forty one million dollars. Nearly eighty percent of that money would be set aside for plaintiffs. who were young children or minors. During the crisis they are the ones most at risk for suffering long-term lead related health problems. But growing course of critics say it's not enough a group of flint. Civic and religious leaders led by pastor. John maclean gathered monday outside. The city's water plant to express concern about the settlement. We believe that the proposed settlement curly allocated is just as disrespectful as injury-cause by the water crisis tragedy itself in addition to tens of thousands of residents. There aren't the lawyers lots of them. More than one hundred forty took part in a zoom hearing with the judge last month. This is part of the challenge facing the judge how to divide a large pool of money without leaving some feeling victimized again. Flint's mayor says it's important. His residents have a belief in justice and developments. This week may help with that for npr news. I'm steve carmody in flint.

GM's Toxic Brownfield, the Flint River and Buick City

"Pieces is a chemical known to cause cancer flint municipal water processing. Plant is north of the city. Buick city brownfield site is more to the pollution story at the buick city brownfield site according to the us environmental protection agency. They determined buick. City contain soil and groundwater which includes under underground water supplies contaminated with various petroleum products and chemicals and metals some of the groundwork and the metals were talking about solvents in lead some of the groundwater under viewing city contains free floating petroleum products called l. n. a. p. l. this which is usually difficult to remove various contaminants have been identified at the site. Fifteen l. a. p. l. areas were found some with the p. c. b. chemical a group of toxic persistent chemicals used in electric transformers and capacitors insulating purposes and in gas pipeline systems as lubricants the sale and new use of. Pcb's were banned by law in nineteen seventy nine although large reservoirs of pcb's remain in the environment. Mind you in the seventies we contamination of pcb's in from midland and eventually the pcb's ended up in our food chain in michigan. And thus the law nineteen seventy nine. That banned the product altogether at the buick. City site soils also were contaminated with battles that means volatile semi volatile organic compounds which include thinners solvents as well as metal lead groundwater was contaminated with volatile organic compounds and semi volatile organic compounds. Again we're talking about thinners and in solvents and Other dissolved metals which was led which gets into the groundwater which at buick city has been contaminated by general motors. surface-water impacts are also present from storm sewer outfall. So that means that the solvents thinners and other other dissolved metals have been found in the storm sewer which is the drains that go off into the flint. P. fas impact is on the ground water. The storm water and the sanitary sewers. So we find the peaceful have completely overrun this place. It sounds like or at least an infected the entire water water system throughout that brownfield site. Now where does that leave us in flint. Where does that leave you. Wherever you may be sitting at certainly isn't good news to find out all this and how come it's being downplayed. I know we have an election coming up. We have the water crisis. Ongoing we have covid nineteen virus and we have a lot of other social problems in flint. Not the least of which is a high in from metality rate which ranks with any country in the third world the most viable site for future development in our area. Which is the buick city. Brownfield site appears to be a poison toxic wasteland now the city fathers and mothers area leaders want this site to become something beautiful. Want this to be one of the things that brings us out of our out of the city's doldrums in down in the dumps but this site until its environmental situation can be resolved will never be part of the solution for flint michigan. It's economic and employment problems. Thus those who work with this want to downplay the impact of its pollution not to let others and the outside world know that. It's a serious as it is. Because that would affect the marketing of the of the site again short-term goals long-term disaster As it stands today we only look at this as a marketing problem. I think it's time we look at it as a criminal problem. These people who have who have repeatedly and it's obvious this is repeated because it happened many places over a long period of time when the law ban certain chemicals and products and their duty to report it end to mediate it before. General motors went. Bankrupt is is something to give some thought to. Why didn't all that happen. And so when it comes to the buick city site a site that's Economy has impacted this region for decades. Environmental justice is needed for what has been discovered

Early findings grim on the health of Flint kids after water crisis

"Flint, once a prosperous hub of the American auto industry, was nearly bankrupt back in 2014. Officials hope to save money by switching the city water source from the Great Lakes to the Flint River. Almost immediately, residents began noticing something wasn't right. The water was rust colored and many people had rashes. Michigan's Department of Environmental Quality in the city insisted. The water in Flint is safe. Later, a state investigation found those officials hid the fact that the river water was not treated with chemicals that would prevent the pipes from corroding. So for months, the water ate away at Flint's old pipes. Releasing led into residents tap water. They were poisoned. I mean, they were poisoned by this water, and they they were all exposed. The toxic water. Dr. Mona Hanna. Tisha is a pediatrician in Flint, who her patients call Dr Mona is our Dr Mona is a bit of a superhero herself here because she was the first to link the water toa high levels of lead in the Children of Flint. So within a few months of being on this water General Motors, which was born in Flint, and still has plants in Flint, I noticed that this water our drinking water was corroding their engine parts. It's possible the drinking water was corroding engine parts, so they were allowed to go back to Great Lakes water. Anybody at that point say, if it's corroding an engine, maybe they shouldn't be going into our bodies and our kids. I mean, that should have been like fire alarm bells like red flags. So what did it take before your your eyes open about this? Yeah, it was the word lead because the word lead When you're a physician or a pediatrician signals what in your brain? There is no safe level of lead. We're never supposed to expose a population or a child to lead. Because we can't do much about it. It is an irreversible neurotoxin. It attacks the core of what it means to be you and impacts cognition. How Children think actually drops I Q levels It impacts behavior leading to things like developmental delays and has these life altering Consequences. In 2015 Dr Mona and a colleague started digging through blood test records of 1700 Flint Children, including the kids, She sees that the Hurley Children's clinic ready, Okay. The nonprofit clinic serves most of Flint's kids. The city is 53% black and has one of the highest poverty rates in the country. So we looked at the Children's by the levels before the water switch. We compare them to Children, but lead levels after the water switch. And in the areas where the water lead levels were the highest and that those parts of the city we saw the greatest increase in Children's lead levels. Armed with the first medical evidence that kids were being exposed to lead from the water. Dr. Mona did something controversial. She quickly held a press conference to share the blood test study. Before other doctors reviewed her work was a bit of an academic. No, no kind of a form of academic disobedience. But you knew that I knew that but like, but there was no choice. There was no way I was going to wait to have this. This research about Ed. Two weeks later, Michigan Governor Rick Snyder ordered the water switch back to the Great Lakes and declared a state of emergency. I say tonight is 1/2 before. I'm sorry, and I will fix it. The damage was done. Dr Mona estimates 14,000 kids in Flint under the age of 6 may have been exposed to lead in their water. I never should have had to do the research that literally used the blood of our Children as detectors of environmental contamination. Three years after the crisis began, the percentage of third graders in Flint, who passed Michigan standardized literacy test dropped from 41% to 10%. I'm very concerned about my Children and not only my Children, but I'm concerned about the Children of Flint Kenyatta Dotson is still fearful of the water. Even though the state is spending more than $300 million to fix the water system City promised to replace all 12,000 supply lines that may have been contaminated with lead. Last fall. Now they say the work won't be done until summer. Dotson says she and her daughters will continue to use bottled water for cooking and brushing their teeth any time to come back to a place where I feel whole again. You don't feel right now. Would this have happened in a rich white suburb? Maybe it would have happened in interest twice over. Would it have continued for a long A zit has? I don't believe

When Flint was using improperly treated water from the Flint, river back in twenty fourteen and fifteen the outbreak occurred at the same time that the city's water system was contaminated with lead.

"City's drinking water from Detroit's water system to the Flint river, it was done in an effort to save the struggling city millions of dollars it ended up instead throwing Flynn into chaos, and costing the mayor's job and several of those who toasted the switch that day were indicted on criminal charges stemming from what would become the Flint water crisis at first Flint's nearly one hundred thousand residents complain their tap water. Wasn't drinkable. Cloudy foul, smelling, tasting of chemicals or worse. That was followed by multiple coli outbreaks and eventually the city acknowledging it was in violation of the safe drinking water act, but government officials persisted in defending the water safe to drink increasingly Flint residents didn't believe them taking to the streets demanding the city returned Detroit's water system. It took a year and a half before. Government officials. Finally, did switch back after independent testing revealed that improperly treated river water damage to pipes releasing lead into the city's drinking water. It was only revealed after the city's drinking water was switched back that legionnaires disease outbreak killed at least a dozen people during the switch there are conflicting scientific opinions as to whether the Flint river water was the source of the outbreak in the past few years, fifteen city and state officials have been indicted about half of cut plea deals. No one is going to jail and the remaining criminal cases are stalled.

"Medals, you know what I think about it seems like it would have actually been cheaper on the front end to just fix the problem that have the problem becomes such a massive crisis in this way, you have to deal with it on the back end, you got to raise. So that is one of the greatest ironies. So this was all done because of austerity. The switch to the Flint river and emergency management come about the lack the loss of democracy. But the greatest irony is that that necessary ingredient, that corrosion patrol only would have cost eighty to a hundred dollars a day, but that was never, you know, put in and the pump to put in that corrosion control treatment was never installed. So there really was never an intent to treat this water properly. Now, I know that there's no cure for lead, but what can we what can we do? Is there anything that we can do with kids, you know, have read that they're pecan help mitigate some of the negative effects, but like what can we do? And the answer which we love in medicine is it depends. So it's different for every tile is different for the age of the child is different for the does is different from any reasons. So all the studies on lead have really been done at a population level. So two kids can have, for example, the same level like fifty micrograms per deciliter. One kid could end up in Harvard and one could could need special education for the rest of their life. So those lots of. Of other reasons that it can impact children. There's lots of protective factors and lots of risk factors. However, the science of lead is now at a point where we now know there is no safe level because any amount of lead can impact children and why we freak out about it so much is because it impacts the core of what it means to be you. It impacts cognition so it literally drops IQ curves. So the IQ curve in population is like a bell shaped curve, and it shifts that bell shaped curve to the left..

Now well let's talk about, some pet news and this is a? Little, bit scary the US food. And Drug administration is warning pet owners. About possible link between. Certain dog foods and canine heart disease the FDA put out, a statement following reports of canine dilated cardiomyopathy DCM's what it's called in dogs eating specific dog foods that contain, peas lentils lay goon seeds and potatoes as the major ingredient now if you're a dog owner right now you're probably freaking out. Because those are the main ingredients in almost every dog, food right these dry or canned foods is, there ran that goes. With them Nope it's. All the all brands it's not. Even a brand specific thing it's an ingredient. Thing and so if you have a daughter On grain free food then you'll notice most of the, time in the cheaper dog. Foods that are grain free the, main ingredient is potatoes and so the strange thing about this is Dr veterinarians are, finding that the, that the heart disease is occurring in breeds that typically don't have heart. Disease, so in breeds that are prone to it are larger breeds I great. Danes boxers Newfoundland's Irish wolf hound Saint bernards dobermans they kind of tend to have heart problems however there now pop. This this DCM is popping up in medium and small breeds American and English cocker spaniels especially golden, and labrador retrievers whip it's Shitsu BULLDOGS miniature, schnauzers and some of the mixed breeds and they're. Saying, the common link amongst all these problems, is the dog food and that they have been on at least six months or, more? Sometimes years these dogs have, been on on this type of food? And, it kind of and I'm. Sure Warren Eckstein are Eckstein our our. Pet expert will have.

The dogs, in that have been diagnosed with DCM in this study they all had a deficiency of taurine so if you are you, are I in e Tori s. So if your dog is, on a grain.

"First time in fourteen years at someone on the left went to unseat crowley here's the thing though crowley didn't even campaign in his district there's two ways to look at this he didn't campaign in his district because he took it for granted that's number one but number two democrats are socialist and you need to realize that crowley is going to be one of many winnie democrats who are part of the old guard that are going to be falling in upcoming elections the blue way that you keep hearing about isn't a blue wave where it concerns democrats taking over republicans the blue wave is the socialist taking over the democrat party this is hillary clinton did not authentically and legitimately and really legally win the primary that's why they had to use all of the the magic of the super delegates at cetera but and and that this i mean this is just i mean it's just it's so much to get into here because there's a socialist wave that's coming on the democrat side and it's already started so we're gonna get into all of that as well additionally who am i gonna i know there's a lot we have another case where it concerns georgia versus florida in water on water fights to states have been fighting for decades over the water in the flint river basin the and the supreme court ruled today that florida has sufficient claims in a decades old fight with georgia over the water it gets from the appalachicola chatahoochee flint river basin and so the fight is going to continue the washington examiner says until a special master appointed by the court conveyor by florida's claims it's a five four decision it ruled that the courts special master use it too strict blablabla its side of a florida so that's the other thing that came out today i know there's so much happening it's kind of crazy so this a lot happening because the prime court supreme court active there's a lot going on right in addition you pull this up i got more for you i got more for you don't say it until june so the seventh circuit court i'm looking at that right now that was in chicago seven circuit chicago jeff sessions scott that win that's what i did was just telling you about because the order remember when again doj had been blocked from withholding millions in funds for law enforcement from sanctuary jurisdictions but here's the thing that the district court's this this seventh circuit injunction is applicable only in chicago so that came out yesterday excuse me that came out yesterday evening so it's it's it's it is a this was the whole thing i two hundred fifty four million dollars that was going to be withheld from police forces nationwide while the case was litigated and this is this is one this was this affects chicago but it could be used as a precedent for other cities if they wanted to contest his actions so so much happening and then of course the ongoing travel more torian we have that as well further discussion on that but justice kagan descent where it concerns the janus case she actually she wrote public employee unions will lose a secure source of financial support just a quick note if you have to force people to pay for things then maybe you should should not be forced yeah like if you have to force people to pay for stuff then i'm just thinking that's probably not the best way to do it you know what i'm saying like if you have to it's just just throwing that out there so we have all of that oh my gosh we have so much more ticket into some really ridiculous that we will discuss as well as what in the world's going on in iran where he protesters have been swarming the streets chanting death to palestine which is interesting because i mean it's iran that funds tomasz so we're gonna get into all of that as well oh and then further civility from the left the left wing writer is saying that admit now it's time for bombs weather underground bill ayers style so we're going to i know we're going to touch all of that it's just there's so much craziness okay so to get into this ruling will start with the supreme court ruling in terms of the union's it's against force fees it has really no affect on right to work it's just about forced fees it is five four state government workers count before to.
