    Michigan's former governor has been charged over the deadly contamination of water in the city of Flint.

    Officials charged Rick Snyder with wilful neglect of duty, punishable by up to a year in jail and a fine, reports the Associated Press.

    His health director and other former officials are also expected to be charged.

    Twelve people died after the city switched its water supply to the Flint River in 2014 in a bid to save money.

    An outbreak of Legionnaires' disease followed, and residents were found to have drunk water poisoned with lead.

    Compared to what happened to some of the Flint residents because of his (some say calculating, since it was only Flint African Americans after all) negligence, he's getting off easy.

    Got to love america, where a small amount of pot will get you a bigger jail sentence then poisoning your own people through greed.

    Some of the other people being charged (closer to the decision making) are facing multiple counts of manslaughter.

    The ex-governor got off with a slap on the wrist. Others were charged with manslaughter and he only faces some misdemeanors.
