Public officials charged in Flint water crisis, allegations

"The former governor of Michigan pleaded not guilty today to two charges of willful neglect of duty nearly seven years after lead, contaminated water killed 12 people and sickened Many more in Flint. Rick Snyder is one of at least nine public officials facing criminal charges related to the water crisis that began after the city switched its water supply in 2014. Steve Carmody is a reporter for Michigan radio. He's been following this, Steve explain what it all means, who's been charged? What are they facing? Well the governor is facing as she said, two counts. They're two misdemeanor counts, and that's Very much. The least important charges filed there a couple members of former senior State Health Department officials who are facing nine counts of involuntary manslaughter. That's tied to the Legionnaire's disease outbreak, which occurred at the same time as the Flint water switch, and some experts believe was caused by the switch in Flint's water. There are also some other people close to the former governor man who was his chief fixer. Is charged with perjury and extortion. Both of those felonies so there are quite a few charges and we'll learn more about what the bases for those charges are as these criminal cases continue. Well, this was such a devastating event for Flint, and they've been dealing with the fall out. For years. You've been hearing from residents, here's Montana's Edwards. Made it hard on people who stay here and he just go out in the sunset. No, we want we want justice what he did. Sounds like he's not happy with those misdemeanor charges. What else are we hearing? A lot of people aren't happy with those misdemeanor charges there. You know. This has been seven years in the making since the city's water source was switched by the emergency managers appointed by Governor Snyder to run the city of Flint. And people have been wanting justice. They have wanted someone to have charges brought against them, and they're they're tired of waiting. And when they see that the governor who has been their main target of you know, the P person they wanted most to see criminally charged is on Lee being charged with misdemeanors. They're very disappointed in that. Will. Snyder's attorney says the charges were part of a politically motivated smear campaign. And this is pretty unusual to have AH former governor charge like this one of the political implications. Well, this is the first time in the history of the state of Michigan So we're talking 180 years since a former governor was charged with crimes connected to when they were in office. So this is a very rare event, obviously in the state of Michigan, and this is a criminal charge brought against a former Republican governor under a Democrat attorney general. So there have been allegations raised that this may have been somewhat politically motivated. We'll see how it plays out in court. Of Comedy reporter for Michigan Radio. Thank you very much. You're welcome.

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.

Michael Flynn: Trump pardons ex-national security adviser

"Former. Us national security adviser. Michael flynn who was convicted during the justice department inquiry into alleged russian interference in the two thousand sixteen election has been pardoned by president. Donald trump trump called his own action. A great honor whilst house speaker. Nancy pelosi called it an act of grave corruption and abrazen brazen abuse of power. Well which is it. And what kind of precedent does it set. Let's get the opinion of scott lucas professor of us. Politics at the university of birmingham scott. Good morning to you. Good morning do remind us of flynn's short-lived term. I think it was just three weeks in the white house. Well while it was only three weeks in the white house there was an import run up to the while he was on the trump campaign in two thousand sixteen. Because michael. Flynn lied to the fbi on two occasions and pleaded implied pleaded guilty to lying to the fbi about a number of conversations. He had with the russian ambassador. Sergei kislyak and december two thousand sixteen. Why were those conversations important because they were about an incoming trump administration lifting sanctions on russia. That had just been imposed by president. Barack obama over moscow's interference in the two thousand sixteen election and interference which of course favoured donald trump. So the was that that michael flynn on behalf of the trump campaign or trump transition was trading immediate political favors in exchange for russia's help The initially the trump administration tried to keep planning office in january february two thousand and seventeen but he had to be sacrificed trump's trying to create a firewall to prevent further investigation. That investigation didn't stop of course accommodated in the miller report which found that there was cooperation between the trump folks and the russians but the right wing insisted and kept pressing trump. You must pardon. Michael flynn he became like this icon for the misinformation that this was all a deep state plot to overthrow the president and we do at some point. That trump would probably pardon fled. It just so happens to come. Easy as trump is trying to cling onto the white house after losing the election in november. We'll see what kind of precedent does this set. I mean do you think that we'll see trump do similar in this. Lame duck period. Oh yeah i think there will be more. And i think that's for a couple of reasons but first let me remind you. That is not just that michael. Flynn actually lied to the fbi about the russia case. It's also that michael flood may have faced prosecution over being an unregistered agent for a foreign power. Taking hundreds of thousands of dollars shrunk turkey and russia for his work while he was on the trump campaign to the extent of making on voice of the turkish government. About extraditing a cleric who is considered an opponent of president aired on And that michael. Flynn was making more money of trying to get nuclear power plants for saudi arabia while he was on the trump campaign and the trump administration In other words trump is willing to give flint a pass for that for two reasons. One he wants to bury the trump russia a fair and trump still faces possible charges over obstruction of justice over trump russia. And secondly michael. Flynn could testify against donald trump in a number of proceedings that are ongoing at state and federal level. Trump wants to cut off that possibility. But you know what michael not. The only person who could testify against donald trump avoid that possibility and of course after trump's term ends in january. He is as you say likely to face. Many legal challenges is there any way he can preemptively. Pardon himself no. We don't think so. I mean no president has tried to pardon himself so we're on noodle legal ground but mostly glands say no that power can't be used to get yourself off the hook what donald trump could do however days before january twentieth. Joe biden takes office resign. Let mike pence become president mike pence pardons donald trump. That is an extraordinary scenario to to think of if it didn't happen in the interest of a united america do you think joe biden might pardon trump if he is convicted. I don't think biden will pardon trump because the scale of the abuse of power by trump as well as the possible crimes is is great probably greater than that of richard nixon in the nineteen seventies. But i what. I do think joe biden will do as is that he will not possibly. He will not push the justice department To do federal investigations in other words. Trump is in sort of a limbo but of lambeau at the federal level. However what joe biden can't do is issue commands to the new york state prosecutors who were compiling a series of cases against what would then be the former president and i mean. Do you seriously think that we could be looking at a feature where donald trump is behind bars. Look georgina there are many things that have happened. We could not visit for years. So i i wouldn't rule anything out at this point. I think donald trump's gonna go kicking and screaming and he as we've seen with his dispute of the election results. His attorneys will drive this out as long as possible. So trump might avoid prison but to avoid prosecution. Now i think even the donald can't get away with that scott lakers. Thanks very much

"In that courtroom while it is in session I flew to Washington DC to sit in on some cases. Getting a measure of your opponent opponent is important, too. It helps to read your opponent by intangible cues like basketball. If you have to make adjustments in a courtroom, you have to make adjustments in the courtroom on the fly. If your opponent has a temper, he. Has a know it all demeanor, etc, the new adjust your game and exploit it to your advantage. One of the most important things I learned from years of arguing cases and being involved in politics was that if you want to win the hearts and minds of jurors or the public yet better argue to the middle of the case, or the or the policy were seeking. Extremists get the headlines, but lawyers who find the sweet spot in the middle when the game. A courtroom is like a stage. You have a captive audience. Those justices had to suffer me for the time allotted. My goal wasn't to just show up for bragging rights I wanted to win, and not just when I wanted to kick. That arrogant lawyers ass. The meeting in Detroit at Coney Island with a defense lawyer had its desired effect. It lit me on fire to prove he wasn't any better in the courtroom than me. Once the big show started. It was obvious that Moran Had A. Was a lot better at writing briefs than dancing in the courtroom under fire. He struggled at reading the justices that day. Justice Ginsburg engaged in a withering exchange with Moran. My experiences in courtrooms involved thinking on my feet. Maran's experiences were writing and research at a desk. My skills learned both in the streets of Flint and in the county courthouse. Were that my fastballs were placed exactly where I wanted them to go. I took that confidence to Washington. While I am at this on this rant. What really gave me another gear to win? was as condescending interaction with me. Lumping me with all prosecutors who he thinks, don't care about poor black people from flint. He was wrong on that one. He never met anyone like me before because I had more education than him and a whole bunch of street smarts earned from the University of dixieland subdivision. My guess is that until mirant started representing poor people on appeals, he had few encounters with poor black people. My hunch was proven right when Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg went after him with questions about what he would tell his client if he had been at at the trial and been that Vincent's lawyer in that flint courthouse. Moran Red in the face, and began to flounder badly, never gave an answer I knew at that moment he had lost the case. Any way back to the supreme, court. I shook his hand and wished him well. I learnt I leaned in his direction and joked. I said you're very lucky. I see in my last name. That with good humor shot back now. I am lucky. My last name is not Gore. Then suddenly. The clerk called the courtroom with an admonition to draw near to the business of the United States Supreme Court. And the justices appeared. On Q. In like a Vaudeville, act. Allowed Bell Rang. And, the Velvet curtains opened. There were nine justices. We're standing behind the bench staring at me. The show was to begin. My first thoughts were these these guys are really old? There's old is Moses. Leaving the court I thought to myself. Those justices were alum lot smarter than me. Justice William Rehnquist than called the case I arose, nervously addressed the court with the traditional salutation MR chief justice, and may it please the core? I confidently delivered my introduction, and thus began the longest and most thrilling twenty minutes my legal career. And there. I stood fielding questions from the justices of the United. States Supreme Court. All, that preparation kicked in. All that I had learned as a kid. Streets of Flint Michigan gave me the will to win. This was no different than playing basketball to win on the asphalt courts in dixieland subdivision. I wanted to win didn't want to win I really really wanted to win. For All the right reasons. I kept thinking. If I got to tell my grandkids about this case I sure and a how didn't WanNa? Tell them that I lost it. The justices zeroed in on questions about four sentences into my argument. Just Justice Scalia wanted to drag me off into some radical far-right swamp with an argument I didn't agree with it all. Being a prosecutor, my guess was he was GonNa vote for my position whatever they were in this case. It was those on the liberal side of the equation. I wanted to convince in order to win nine to nothing. It was necessary to find the middle of this group and go at it as hard as I could. My heart was pumping hard like I was riding my bike up the rocky mountains. My ears were beat red. I left. I left having left every bit of myself in that Tornado courtroom. Left there, knowing that all the courage and effort author risk taking in all the bobbing and weaving in that courtroom necessary to win. It was the best that I could give. I also left with two white quilt pins compliments of the court to commemorate this once in a lifetime experience. I won the case.

It came from divorced families so he got a mom and dad in that home and usually the dad was the breadwinner and mom was June cleaver staying at home and that was the traditional family thing so I think that really added to the support.

And it's sad the way things are going to give you an example here in late sixties there were forty seven thousand students in the flint community. Schools there's less than four thousand students in Flint. Mi Schools now. Now skip new least in my mind. Research is new represent in are the epitome of Flint's heyday. So to speak you were raised in the sixties in Flint and participated and all kinds of activities. I assume you had a flight football team. Someplace in their own at six straight at McKinley or excuse me of freemen football program in Kinley and that was provide with him out foundation Saturday mornings. We'd go there and laptops high school athletes along with maybe coacher a teacher from the school there and we played a few games. Donate stadium to end the season. So yeah it was It was big sports. Were always big and Flynn in fact. I want to ask me. Why went such a resilient in town? I think the foundation is the athletic sports programs. That is one really a fed flint and You look all the state championships. Flint used to win central northern South Western northwestern. I mean for years a year single buying in a flint. School didn't win a State Championship. Jim In one sport or another and the is it sad. Now that we've gone down that we don't have our sports teams have really haven't been doing as well as they have in the past and that's what really bothers me. That seems to have shifted many respects to private schools course powers powers. Catholic is of great tradition and some of the schools Detroit Country Day. I think of some of the other southwest side of the state seemed seemed to have that that vacuum if you will of of the demise of schools when we get back to talking about you almost at every stage of your life. You've you've benefited. It seems like with or academics or community activity and then you went back to be a leader in in that in that system. What was it about that Upgrade of yours that made you WanNa do that and stay and how people slip way. Did they do with drawing up and Flint? My Dad was a flint police officer for twenty five years and I. It was all school gun. A DAD and You always gave back to the community that you brought up an. He taught me that he told me that. You know what we were. Offer a lot of things in flint and we aren't we ought to put things back and so I really feel them. Working with the kids and Flint was proudly my high point in my career. I did go on was the assistant principal and Athletic Director grambling Middle School. The fun part about that was being the athletic director and working with kids. That's always been the most fun. Part of my life is it. My job is working with kiss. And that's it's it's a rewarding thing so you you went moved to suburbia in a nice. Miriam Graham Blink and you finish your career there and retired.

Clean Wholesome Athletics Keystone. Things like sports when ship teamwork working hard. All those things that you learn sports and we we also did the Flynn Olympian USA Games in the summer. Which is the biggest program in Flint for a number of years for kids to participate in So that pretty much wraps it up. I mean we were kind of like the do everything Kinda got. We wore the white hat. We reminded great opportunities for kids adults and I enjoyed that job. Probably more than any job I've ever read. So the the canoes games were something else And that tradition in Flint. Still Continue. Doesn't it does it? Does it sure does? And they've tied in with the body cream foundation and the Bobby Krim combinations. Now one of the major sponsors of the Flint Olympian Canoes Games of the flint schools. No longer kind of overseas that pretty much under the guidance of the Bobby Krim Foundation. And they've got a lot more resources and things to provide that The schools just couldn't provide anymore so that is essentially a partnership between City Hamilton Ontario. And those in city of Flint and then families and individuals competing against families individuals and the other Country Rain The big part of that more than the competition. Was that when you go to Canada and participate. There's an athlete. You live in the home of another raft fleet who you're probably competing against so fellowship goodwill international relations that you developed in more so than the competition course. You Always WanNa be Canada but again winning or losing was the most important thing. The most important thing was developing those relationships with another country people from another country and it was. It was fun. Great Times now. That program has been ongoing for how many years you know yes started a pretty sure. Nineteen fifty seven and so they pass their fiftieth anniversary was in two thousand and seven in so yet thirty about sixty for years now. They've been going strong and flint and the community.

Citizen's come in and square dance in. Sit and play cards. Have a good time have potlucks of gathering place. The community school was the haven is the lifeblood of each individual community and when we had to start closing schools in flint. That was probably my hardest decision. You're probably misleading. And when I was a flint board member was having to close schools. We close schools other schools. The communities depended on those schools or those activities for that place to go and gather and when you star closed community schools they lost sense of community and you start seeing some of these communities deteriorate as a result so I I kind of I kind of tie loss of the community education program per se with the musical directors in in in the Not really deterioration and wants to flint. But in your not people exit slam they The suburbs look for different things to do because we just couldn't provide the same things that they used to provide. You grew up in the city. I'm south into flint near Freeman school. What were an example? Some of the activities. You -ticipant it as a youngster. Okay why I grew up Actually Lincoln School.

Football too and your position in football wide receiver. Okay and Tell us a little bit about your sports career in high school so as sophomore. I didn't go off for football my junior high coach Coach Williams Told me I was probably should stick with basketball baseball. Said I was too fragile and get her plan football so I listened to him and I didn't go out. Slugged Waza Sophomore played. Jv basketball until Christmas. Time and then Herb mcdaniel. I got called up to the Varsity and we ended up both starting on the bar. City and Urbach same is going to be inducted into the Greater Flint African America Hall of fame this year. It got postponed because of a virus but he was a great player We weren't very good as As a team as Sophomores Juniors by the time we got to be seniors We won the Saginaw Valley Division and we made it to the regional finals got beat by Clinton are Great Flint. Northern Team Tom McGill Wayman Britt and Berry Menefee. We lost five games at your three of them were to northern and one of them was to Piney. Central Time May with campy.

Catering be panic. Central in the Semis Flint. Northern be somebody else that landlord that'd be carrying in files of course can't be. Russell agreed campy Russell. When onto play at the University of Michigan I think he played professional probably played ten years in the NBA. A good career. Well your basketball career was a lot of fun I could see I could see the competition was certainly flint style. Because you you played against some of the best and with the best Herbert Danone's of course was a terrific one. Better Flint basketball players in in our history. Jeff you also played baseball. And that's really where you do reached Some pretty high levels of for a high school kid of. Why don't you tell us you were as I understand it? You were drafted in the sixth round by the Detroit Tigers. Which may you the hundred and thirty four th pick In the amateur draft in nineteen seventy one? How did that happen? Well actually When I was a junior Bill Joy was a scout for the Tigers. Bb He went on to become general manager eventually He came to fly into Scout Mark Crane and Mike Taku at Flint Central and the game. He came to just handed. They happen to be planned. Southwestern I was planned for South Western and bill joy took a liking to me and He followed me. Obviously the rest of that year and my senior year and He was the main reason. I got drafted and so You know I spent a fair amount of time in In the winter watching the Toronto Blue Jays training down in Dunedin Florida and I listened to the code listened to the scouts talking. And there's been several times when we do that. Then I got in the middle of the debates about whether it was best for a high school or go to college or pursue professional baseball Tell us a little bit about your thinking there. Well Hindsight's always twenty twenty. If I had to do all over again I probably would have gone to University of Michigan or to Kent State University and Played Baseball and football I was recruited As a wide receiver to go UBER SO Michigan To play football for ball and I ended up signing with tiger so I never I never made it to them to play in the big house Probably not a good decision but it you know when you're eighteen years old. That's a tough tough thing to decide him. You're not sure which way to go sure. And that year in the major league draft you had some classmates who were also Draft by the Detroit Tigers and. Learn to tell us a little bit about that. So the number one pick that year was Tommy Verizon From Long Island New York? Great Guy Great Athlete Tommy probably ended up plan almost ten years maybe in the big leagues When I was When I signed with the Tigers when I got to Bristol Virginia the Rookie League Jim Leyland was our manager. That was Quite quite a team A bunch of eighteen year olds away from home for the first time. And that was Jim. Leyland's first you're managing so it was It was pretty interesting. Leland of course became the manager of Detroit Tigers and and also use the manager of the Pittsburgh Pirates. I remember and I think didn't Leland Win Well World Series Championship with a Florida team. Was it a floor above? I WANNA say Marlon Ninety nineteen ninety seven. Maybe you're go ahead. I'm sorry I might have the wrong. He Wanna off is Leeland in the hall of fame. I don't think he's very yet but you would think with the amount of Wins it. He accumulated over the years. You probably think he might get in at some point now. Jeff what was it like playing for a guy like Leland? He's a guy that he's kind of players coaches. I understand it. He was quite a character. He was only twenty six years old and he was trying to Babysit a bunch of eighteen year. Old Kids so it was It was quite a time I've got Some few few stories But probably can't tell all over my camera I remember one incident where we were. We stopped at a truck. Stop to eat and when we got back on the bus Bus driver started pulling away and the The police came and blocked the bus. And of course you know the manager sits in the front row on the right there and it was an leland gets off the bus and talking to the policemen and about ten minutes later here comes Leland policemen and they walk back through the lesson. They They Gabe. Mo- Horton who I believe is related. Willie Horton. I don't know if it was their cousins or mos nephew or whatever but turns out Mo- forgot to pay for his meal and that didn't go over too well and They ended up taking the MO off the bus. And we never saw Moore again I'm not sure it seemed kind of a stiff penalty for just hot lunch and up but you know what happened. What was it like to play? You ended up playing in Lakeland I played gives me. I played twice in Lakeland. Played in seventy two for the first half of the year and then in seventy five I played that seventy five team had lance parrish on it Mark the bird. Federal Judge Proper.
