Paying the price
You probably recall the water crisis a few years ago in Flint, Mi. The city moved its water supply from Detroit to the local river. Unfortunately, they did not do much checking of the Flint River. Had they done so, they would have discovered that the water was contaminated due to lead from old plumbing. Many residents, young and old, developed Legionnaires' disease. Now, the head of the state's health department has been charged with involuntary manslaughter. He is accused of failing to alert the public about the outbreak of Legionnaires' disease.
