    Genesee County Volunteer Militia [OCing] join calls for justice in water crisis

    On Sunday afternoon, about 30 militia supporters clad in camouflage gear and bearing “Don’t Tread on Me” flags, gathered outside of City Hall to demand accountability amid a national discussion over how the city’s water supply became contaminated.

    “We’re here to defend this community," said Matthew Krol, the militia's executive officer, addressing the crowd in a full camouflage outfit with a handgun strapped to his hip. “We’re not going to allow (the government) to step on the people of Flint any longer.”

    Hypocrites. Traitors. Working with that idiotic jerk-off in anything is blasphemy. But them sticking their noses in this is just stupid. Tragedy? Yes. Avoidable? Maybe. But the whole damn story is being blown way out of whack, and doing nothing more than giving the big mouthed morons, has-beens, weasels and self appointed so-called experts more opportunity to release their verbal diarrhea. Now add in people that litards already see as "gun nuts" and give them even more to whine about. Wonderful.

    sorry De, but who is going to take accountability for the Flint water debacle ~ one the city & state, up to and including the governor, knew about but several years ago and yet chose to ignore?

    the sad turn of events at least got the funding they were looking for, per se. But at what cost ~ the health of the community?

    I would hold the people in charge of the water there accountable. It was their screwup that led to this whole mess in the first place. Laying blame for this at any more than the local level is stupid. THEY were the ones with constant direct contact to the relevant department and people. THEY were the ones that got their city so far down the can that they can't see the paper roll without help. Maybe even lay a little of the blame at the feet of the people of Flint themselves for putting worthless hacks into office in the first place. The only thing anyone ABOVE local level can be blamed for is not putting boots in peoples backsides fast enough.

    And selling your soul to the devil isn't going to fix this, nor is having a bunch of blowhard gasbags around who like to be constantly offended (and take the time to remind people of it just to recapture a few moments in the spotlight) sitting back and doing next to nothing to help, and certainly useless in actually SOLVING the problem.
