Log Out Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette announces charges for six state and local officials in connection to the Flint water crisis.
Paul Egan, Detroit Free Press Paul Egan, Detroit Free Press Governor Rick Snyder faces a crowd booing him during remarks to a crowd at Flint Northwestern High School on Wednesday May 4, 2016 before President Barack Obama speaks with those affected during the Flint Water Crisis.
On Wednesday, he said: "This is about people’s lives and families and kids and it’s about demonstrating to people across the state — it doesn’t matter who you are, young, old, rich, poor, black, white, north, south, east, west.
There is one system of justice, and the rules apply to everybody, whether you're a big shot or no shot at all." People tend to forget that, besides an entire American city not having safe water to drink after the city’s water supply was switched to the Flint River, the Flint area endured an outbreak of Legionnaires' disease that resulted in 12 deaths.
Schuette declined to say whether he had subpoenaed the governor.
