Yes, my friends, life is stranger than fiction! While Barack Hussein Obama ignored the Colorado Mine Spill, he turned and condemned the Flint, Michigan water disaster, and for obvious reasons. However, a lawsuit was filed and one of the women involved in the lawsuit has now been found murdered. This comes just days after a City water foreman died mysteriously in his home.
According to his obituary, Matthew McFarland, 43, of Otter Lake died suddenly on April 16, 2016. According to a report, the Lapeer County Sheriff’s Office says that a friend discovered McFarland inside his home and unresponsive.
Though the sheriff’s office claims that there were no signs of foul play, the autopsy of Mr. McFarland was inconclusive with regards to the cause of death. Results from toxicology reports are now being awaited.
However, in another death that occurred just after McFarland’s, a woman who was at the center of the Flint water crisis was found murdered.
A woman at the center of a bellwether Flint water crisis lawsuit was one of two women who were shot to death inside a townhouse earlier this week.
Sasha Avonna Bell was one of the first of a growing number of people to file a lawsuit in connection to the Flint water crisis after she claimed that her child had been lead poisoned.
Bell was found dead April 19 in the 2600 block of Ridgecrest Drive at the Ridgecrest Village Townhouses. Sacorya Renee Reed was also found shot to death in the home.
An unharmed 1-year-old child was also found inside of the Ridgecrest home when Bell’s body was discovered and was taken into custody by child protective services. Police declined to confirm if it was Bell’s child discovered in the home.
Two days after Bell was murdered, two Michigan employees were charged in the Flint water poisoning. Interestingly enough, Governor Rick Snyder has yet to even be questioned.
The charges come as Michigan’s Republican Governor Rick Snyder said he has not been questioned by prosecutors in connection with the crisis. Protesters have called for Governor Snyder to resign over his handling of the Flint water crisis, which began when the city’s unelected emergency manager, appointed by Governor Snyder, switched the source of the city’s drinking water from the Detroit system to the corrosive Flint River, and the water corroded Flint’s aging pipes, causing lead to leach into the drinking water.
Keep in mind that Governor Snyder used $500,000 of tax payer money to hire attorneys to defend himself when the lawsuits began to pile up. Snyder and other officials knew the water was poisoned, continued to charge the people for it and even threatened foreclosure on their homes or take their children if they didn’t pay. Furthermore, in an attempt to cover it up, they began to bring in fresh water to state buildings so that the people there wouldn’t have to drink the contaminated water. Later, the National Guard was called out to help distribute water door-to-door.
Something is looks and smells wrong with this picture, and it ain’t the water!
