They feel or at least what some are understanding is that Rick Snyder should not step down because he probably can’t do much for The Flint Water Crisis nor might he know how to stop the situation or they might not hold it over his head considering that people hold the bad stuff over his head not including all the good things that Rick Snyder has done. However, what they don’t realize is that Rick Snyder decided to take water from the poor community instead of the more fortunate especially not realizing the fact that if you're taking stuff from the less fortunate where could they possibly go to?

He stopped Pittston’s attempts to stall the case several times and desired to bring the justice to the victims. Maybe he was affected by the personal experiences of those plaintiffs and showed some favour to their side, but he was not off the line and still performed just like what a reasonable and professional judge would perform. However, in terms of the ethical conduct of Pittston, I would say I was so unhappy with their indifference and apathy. They did not think about how their actions would affect those already aggrieved individuals.

The parts of cities that African Americans where in or an entire cities would be run down and in ruins. Thousands on thousands of people were lacking the means to provide shelter, food, and clothing for themselves yet alone their families. The Federal government knew about the conditions the African Americans were in and did little to nothing assist the needy. Infections even minor ones left former slaves with the burden of unpaid medical bills or the lack of ability to access the proper medical care that they needed.
