How the state of Michigan feels about Flint kids in one ugly quote

rawstory:

While attorneys have subpoenaed all emails and communications
between Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder ® over the ongoing Flint water
crisis, a few details have been released showing what can only be
described as depraved indifference on the part of state workers to the
plight of Flint citizens.

The Republican governor released some staff emails on Jan. 20,
showing that he was well aware that Flint citizens were slowly being
poisoned following a decision by the Michigan Department of
Environmental Quality to force them to live with lead-tainted water.

According to the NY Times,
Snyder was informed in one email that a state nurse told one young
mother to not worry about the damage being done to her child when her
son’s blood showed an elevated lead level.

“It is just a few IQ points. … It is not the end of the world,” the nurse reportedly told the worried mom.

According to whistle-blower Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, “If you were
going to put something in a population to keep them down for generations
to come — it would be lead.”
