Michael Moore who has been very outspoken regarding the toxic lead levels discovered in Flint, Michigan, has recently addressed the ten individuals whose deaths have been connected with the inadequate water quality.

Moore, along with many others, have directly accused Michigan governor Rick Snyder of knowingly allowing Flint citizens to drink and bathe in lead-poisoned water for over a year and a half.

“This is not a mistake. Ten people have been killed here because of a political decision. They did this. They knew.”

“We need to start using the proper words when we talk about this. Ten people have been killed in Flint because of Legionnaire’s disease now that has broken out here. And I want the media to please use the word ‘kill.’ If it was ten people killed in a tornado, you’d say ‘ten people killed.’”
