Flint native Michael Moore calls for Snyder's arrest

Posted: Updated:
FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

Flint native Michael Moore joined the chorus of celebrities calling for Gov. Rick Snyder to step down or even face criminal charges for his handling of the Flint water crisis.

Moore, on his website, wrote a scathing condemnation of Snyder’s actions.

“Thanks to you, sir, and the premeditated actions of your administrators, you have effectively poisoned, not just some, but apparently ALL of the children in my hometown of Flint, Michigan.

And for that, you have to go to jail.

To poison all the children in an historic American city is no small feat. Even international terrorist organizations haven't figured out yet how to do something on a magnitude like this.”

The letter continued to condemn Snyder’s actions and accused the governor of covering up the severity of the situation.

“Like any real criminal, when you were confronted with the truth (by the EPA and other leading water experts across America), you denied what you did. Even worse, you decided to mock your accusers and their findings.”

At the conclusion of his letter, he created a petition for Snyder’s arrest, calling for U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch to investigate Snyder.
