This post is what I suppose should be called part two of the water contamination crisis in Alabama, you can find the first piece I wrote here. First note: it was the water board that made this choice; a choice science and scientists back up as I’ll show below.
As you’ll see below, “oddly” there seems to be some conflict in what the scientists and state and county government believe.While at the cited press conference government officials numerous times stated they would not panic over this situation and so forth; only to find out by more scientists that they were in the wrong. Anyhow, that insane view of don’t worry the water is probably safe; drink it while you wait for us to figure it out! doesn’t work for me.
I automatically am going to believe the ones who have spent decades studying the topic and the water board and not drink the water if for no other reason, as a precaution. Let us not forget, the scientists I speak of have made it their job to study this kind of issue, have history as well as years of data on their side. They support the water boards call to not drink the contaminated water.
Should be plain and simple… but it’s not.
Government officials in the area are frustrated and clearly
Despite Flint’s water crisis being at least discussed on national media…sometimes…though not nearly covered enough, especially with the criminal governor still being free) I have seen even less regarding the problem with water contamination nationwide, not to mention air pollution and other dangerous toxin related issues. These toxic zones can be found mainly in the poor and/or Black communities of America.
For a country so “developed” the American government show little to less concern for its people and our well being.(I’d like to note, I am not singling out President Obama-this is the work and acceptance of generations along with members of the government; not one person alone.)
Though I am not staying in Alabama, where I am currently staying for a few months also has problems with water contamination. These people regularly seem to be getting a notice on the door to not drink the water a common thing.
I have so many current cases with police brutality and my other areas of activism I’ve not been able to keep up the videos here as I wish to- that WILL change and I’ll also start including other videos dealing with things like racism, modern day Jim Crow, the ORIGINS of cops, modern day slavery, poverty, the Prison INDUSTRY and etc. For now though, it’s for police brutality; and these are some of my cases I worked on a few years ago.
I’m sharing for two reasons: 1) Remember the victim, 2) See what the cops doing today as these cases were about 2 yrs back give or take. Each video will be for a new person, and I will do current beatings and murders soon. For now, please share this mans horrible story. Unarmed. In his 40s. Screaming for his life. Beaten in multiple locations. Taken 7 miles outside the town and then the father/son cop duo got him out of the car and killed him.
They have never been punished. And they never will, as enraging as that is. Let it enrage you; this is STILL GOING ON! It has never stopped!!! Let’s change that.
