Flint water crisis: Michigan health director ordered to manslaughter trial - Michigan Health Director Nick Lyon is highest-ranking official charged for Flint water issues.

A judge on Monday ordered Michigan’s top health official, Nick Lyon, to stand trial for involuntary manslaughter charges in two deaths linked to the Flint water crisis.

Michigan health director, 4 others charged with manslaughter over Flint water
Genesee District Judge David Goggins determined that there was probable cause that Lyon committed involuntary manslaughter against Robert Skidmore and John Snyder in 2015. The two men died during an outbreak of Legionnaire’s disease, which researchers have connected to the devastating use of improperly treated water in Flint starting in 2014.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good; and there should be many more indictments coming, for this health debacle, to insure that it doesn't happen again, either in Flint, or elsewhere in this country.

When people in power understand that they risk serious jail time, for risking peoples' health, perhaps their decision-making will be a little more clear, particularly when it comes to water treatment in this country.
