    (CNN)Three government employees charged in connection with the Flint water crisis "failed Michigan families," and the charges against them "are only the beginning" of a lengthy and exhaustive probe, state Attorney General Bill Schuette said Wednesday.

    While Flint residents have said they feel the criminality that led to poisonous water being pumped into their homes stems from the top, namely Gov. Rick Snyder's office, Schuette promised that no one guilty of wrongdoing would escape justice, no matter "how big a shot you are."

    "No one is above the law, not on my watch," he said.

    Whatever sentence they get (probably a couple years in a cushy white collar jail), it won't be close to severe enough for what happened to those poor people in Flint.

    There is a Micheal Moore doc on netflix from 1997 that mirrors what is happening today.
