Detroit, MI- It took many months and a community rising up but Michigan Governor Rick Snyder has finally expressed at least some regret for poisoning the city of Flint's water supply.

Snyder appointed an "emergency manager" to control Flint under the state's controversial Republican law giving governor-appointed managers dictatorial power overt cities with financial emergencies. Snyder's manager decided to switch Flint's water supply from the city of Detroit to the polluted Flint River. It resulted in lead contamination and additional pollutants in the city's drinking water.
