State of Emergency Declared In Flint Michigan Due To Poisoned Water!!!
The Mayor of Flint, Michigan declared a state of emergency on Monday due to extreme levels of lead in the city water supply.


From the article:


The crisis reached a nadir Monday night, when Flint mayor Karen Weaver declared a state of emergency.

“The City of Flint has experienced a Manmade disaster,” Weaver wrote in a declaratory statement.

The mayor, elected after her predecessor Dayne Walling experienced fallout from his administration’s handling of the water problems, said in the statement that she was seeking support from the federal government to deal with the “irreversible” effects of lead exposure on the city’s children. Weaver believes that these health consequences will lead to a greater need for special education and mental health services, as well as developments in the juvenile justice system.

To those living in Flint, the announcement may feel like it’s been a long time coming.

Almost immediately after the city started getting its water from the Flint River in April 2014, residents began complaining about the water, which they said was cloudy in appearance and emitted a foul odor.

Since then, complications from the water coming from the Flint River have only piled up. While city and state officials initially denied that the water was unsafe, this January saw the release of a state notice informing Flint residents that their water contained unlawful levels of Trihalomethanes — a chlorine byproduct linked to cancer and other diseases — and as a result was in non-compliance with the federal Safe Drinking Water Act.

Talk about a Conspiracy, this sure is one. How could the government in that city think they could pull off a cover up with all the kids running around with lead in them??

Honestly, you cant really tell the difference between naggers with lead poisoning and those without. Its like saying the mousetrap really stifled the mouses ability to compose classical music.
