Two People Involved In Flint Water Investigation Found Dead

82

The Flint Water Treatment Plant Foreman (an important part of the investigation) and a woman leading the Flint lead poisoning lawsuit were both found dead in less than a week.

Everything about the Flint water crisis is as toxic and disgusting as the water that is being pumped into Flint homes. From the crass negligence that allowed such an insidious thing to happen, to the lack of will to fix it in timely fashion – not to mention the obvious attempts at covering up the truth: The situation is poisonous. And that poison could easily spread across America.

This is not simply a water cleanliness issue. It is about allowing parts of America to devolve into toxic cesspools, where problems are “solved” with underhanded police-state tactics. In the span of a few weeks, crucial files mysteriously disappeared from the Flint city hall, the Water Treatment Plant Foreman died suddenly at age 43 and a woman leading the lawsuit against Flint was murdered in her home.

Toxic Water

Flint tap water in dated bottles.

The Flint water crisis began exactly two years ago, on April 2014, when Flint changed its water source from treated Detroit Water and Sewerage Department water to the Flint River – to which officials had failed to apply corrosion inhibitors. Almost immediately, Flint residents complained about the water’s color, taste and odor. In the following months, numerous water issues arose, with little to no governmental action to fix them.

  • August and September 2014 boil-water advisories were issued by the city due to coliform bacteria detection
  • On August 21, 2014 test showed the city’s water tested high for THMs, a chlorine byproduct of disinfecting water, with which long term exposure has been linked to cancer and other diseases.
  • Though the city stated that the water was safe, the employees of the Flint Public Library declared the water undrinkable after noticing that the water from the faucets and toilets was discolored.
  • On March 2, 2016, it was reported that the state of Michigan blocked Flint from returning to Lake Huron water from the Detroit water system when it agreed to grant the city an emergency loan of $7 million in April 2015
  • It was discovered that the high levels of lead were due to orthophosphate being omitted from the water treatment process, while using a pH of 7.4 and that the orange water was due to the high concentration of chloride in the Flint River water, which caused excessive corrosion of the cast iron mains pipes.

Far from taking decisive action, governments denied that the water was toxic.

While the local outcry about Flint water quality was growing in early 2015, Flint water officials filed papers with state regulators purporting to show that “tests at Flint’s water treatment plant had detected no lead and testing in homes had registered lead at acceptable levels.” The documents falsely claimed that the city had tested tap water from homes with lead service lines, and therefore the highest lead-poisoning risks; in reality; the city does not know the locations of lead service lines, which city officials acknowledged in November 2015 after the Flint Journal/MLive published an article revealing the practice after obtaining documents through the Michigan Freedom of Information Act.

The net result is that over 10,000 children (mostly Black) were exposed to water contaminated with lead. Lead poisoning has devastating effects on the brain:

Childhood lead exposure causes a reduction in intellectual functioning and IQ, academic performance, and problem-solving skills, and an increased risk of attention deficit disorder, aggression, and hyperactivity. According to studies, children with elevated levels of lead in the blood are more likely as adults to commit crimes, be imprisoned, be unemployed or underemployed, or be dependent on government services.

A massive investigation is now underway and lawsuits are being filed. And things are turning uglier.

Cover Up

Now that the federal government opened an investigation on the issue, news emerging from Flint are downright sordid.

First, in March, important documents went missing, the police openly admits that it was an inside job, and that the crime will most likely remain unresolved.

Days before the federal government opened an investigation into the Flint water crisis, someone broke into a vacant City Hall office full of documents related to the embattled Michigan city’s water system.

Nearly three months later, officials have confirmed that a TV went missing, but little else is known, according to the Flint Journal.

Without suspects or a firm handle on what else may have been swiped, authorities told the paper last week that the crime may remain unsolved.

No warrants have been issued in the case, but officials don’t shy away from speculative statements that stop just short of conspiracy theories.

“It was definitely an inside job,” police chief Tim Johnson told the Journal. “The power cord (to the TV) wasn’t even taken. The average drug user knows that you’d need the power cord to be able to pawn it.”

“It was somebody that had knowledge of those documents that really wanted to keep them out of the right hands, out of the hands of someone who was going to tell the real story of what’s going on with Flint water.”

On April 16th, Water Treatment Plant Foreman Matthew McFarland (who had been interviewed regarding the water crisis) was found dead at the young age of 43. Cause of death? Unknown.

Plant foreman

Matthew McFarland

Already reeling from the news of criminal charges against one of its workers in the wake of the Flint water crisis, city workers are now dealing with the sudden death of a foreman at the plant.

Water Treatment Plant Foreman Matthew McFarland, 43, of Otter Lake died suddenly on on Saturday, April 16, according to his obituary.

The Lapeer County Sheriff’s Department said a friend found McFarland unresponsive at a home in Otter Lake. There were no signs of foul play.

An autopsy did not determine a cause of death and police are awaiting toxicology reports. The investigation remains open.

“My thoughts and prayers go out to Matt’s co-workers, his family and especially his children,” said Flint Mayor Karen Weaver. “He worked for the City of Flint for more than 18 years and we thank him for his devotion and service.”

“We all have been brought together by this water crisis and we are all mourning his death,” Weaver said in a statement. “In lieu of flowers, the family has expressed they would appreciate donations to establish a fund for (his children) Vance and Ella’s college expenses.”

McFarland’s death comes as Flint’s water plant deals with news that Flint Utilities Manager Michael Glasgow is one of three men facing criminal charges in connection with the city’s water crisis.

Glasgow is accused of tampering with evidence when he allegedly changed testing results to show there was less lead in city water than there actually was. He is also charged with willful neglect of office.

Michigan Department of Environmental Quality employees Stephen Busch and Michael Prysby are charged with misconduct in office, conspiracy to tamper with evidence, tampering with evidence and violations of the Michigan Safe Drinking Water Act.

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette’s office confirmed that McFarland was previously interviewed as part of its ongoing investigation into the city’s water crisis.

A few days later, a 19-year old woman leading the Flint water crisis lawsuit was found shot dead in her home. A culprit was arrested. Was he a patsy?

Sasha Avonna Bell

Sasha Avonna Bell

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.

“Sasha was a lovely young woman who cared deeply for her family, and especially for her young child,” said her attorney Corey M. Stern. “Her tragic and senseless death has created a void in the lives of so many people that loved her. Hopefully, her child will be lifted up by the love and support from everyone who cared deeply for Sasha.”

Bell’s case was one of 64 lawsuits filed on behalf of 144 children by Stern’s firm, New York-based Levy Konigsberg, and Flint-based Robinson Carter & Crawford.

The lawsuit named six companies that had various responsibilities with respect to the treatment, monitoring, and safety of the Flint water prior to and during the Flint water crisis, according to her attorneys. The case also named three individual government, or former government, employees who played significant roles in the alleged misconduct that led to the alleged poisoning of thousands of children in Flint, her attorneys claim.

The Bell case, however, played an important role in determining the future of the more than five dozen other lawsuits that were filed.

Everything about this story is revolting and dirty facts are emerging from everywhere. However, mass media largely ignores this story. Those that do are flooded with comments about “tin foil hats” and “conspiracy nutters”. It is as if shills are paid kill that story online … or maybe that poisonous lead has already done its debilitating, mind-numbing job.

Screw the Kardashians and their “Rockefeller” lifestyle that influenced the fate of Lamar Odom and anyone involved with them. This story however is clearly a good example of alleged depopulation as how the NWO prefer it, and conspired assassins as usual to take out the whistleblowers.

This is the kind of thing that Black Folk are fed up over, but the real enemy remains hidden every time… White People, and All People, need to invest themselves in such injustices–not just by looking to the Federal Government for saving. We all need to pursue these things as vigorously as if it were happening in our own community– What happens to your neighbor always comes to your door with enough time. And we are our Brother and Sister’s Keepers. Ignore race baiting and divisive rhetoric and read deep hi$tory and look for patterns of power and wealth accumulation.… Read more »

Actually you sound more like your playing from the Protcols of Zion (illuminati) playbook that says divide people over race because they are to stupid to see beyond race. The Zionist elite hate everyone and want to enslave everybody but believe in racist supremacy so they only see whites has the biggest threat who will fight back so they are targeting whites more in media. But the truth is they want to destroy everyone who isn’t helping in their world domination plans.

Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into white countries.

Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites.

They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white.

Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.

Where’s Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton on this? Not profitable enough for them? How is it that more people don’t see how much Black people are targeted? There’s this case, the welfare cycle, the fact that planned parenthoods pop up in predominantly Black neighborhoods, and how the criminal justice system’s prisons used to be filled with White men but after the Civil Rights movement are filled with young Black men? I know part of it is cultural, music that promotes violence and fatherless kids, but surely when something like this happens, more people should take notice and CARE. These elites… Read more »

Where are the Beyonces and Rihannas on this issue? And I’m not talking about just donating water and giving money through their “charities”. Why won’t they ever use their high status to get to the root of the problem, and call out these corrupt officials and politicians that are the cause of these predicaments and suffering to people? But Black Lives Matter, right?! Rhetorical question. They don’t give a damn. They will lose their careers if they ever dare question ma$$a.

And you missed my entire point. I said why not use her influence to go after the ROOT of the problem by calling out the officials who are at fault here? She can give as much water and money as she pleases but that still does not solve the problem of the poisoned water. Will she still be giving them water five or ten years from now? They need to fix the actual problem so that it doesn’t happen again. Most charities are scams anyway. They use them as tax write-offs.

Boiling water cleans contaminants but it doesn’t help with fluoride. The thing is flouride mostly only effects IQ in young people by decreasing it, so if someone is an adult with a full functioning brain it won’t really affect them. So just boiling water to get out lead or lithium that’s secretly put in tap water until getting a water filter helps but people with kids should stay clear of it.

It does affect the pineal gland.

Anyway, there was one study done, on hamsters, which concluded that fluoride causes calcium to accumulate in the pineal gland.

If the bottle isn’t stated as being put through reverse osmosis then you are wasting your time even when the bottling company claims it’s spring water. Know what the elite themselves look for when they are buying clean water. I have nothing against all Jews in general but a lot of the illuminati elite are falsely claiming to be Jewish and keep clean food hidden from most everyone by marketing it kosher, meaning blessed by a rabbi proving it to be clean.
