Austerity on Trial as Flint Emergency Manager Slammed With Criminal Charges

Flint MI has the emergency manager who displaced the elected officials in that city, who was solely responsible for the oversight of the City, and who cut corners in the name of austerity. In the meantime, Detroit Public Schools have been under the control of the State who displaced the elected Board and invited in de-regulated charters to manage their schools resulting in nearly two additional decades of failure… in large measure in the name of austerity. Maybe austerity is the problem… 

Putting austerity on trial, Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette on Tuesday announced criminal charges against four high-level officials for their role in causing the Flint water crisis, including former city manager Darnell Earley, who made the budget-driven decision to switch the city’s water supply to the dangerously corrosive Flint River.
