    So tell me this. If a government official is found GUILTY of breaking a law(s) or committing a crime, resulting in jail time, can taxpayers get their money back, or no? Citizens are the "victims" in these cases so who defends them? Do they have to take the issue up in a civil lawsuit whereby they have to pay for legal representation?

    Here's another question I don't know the answer to. Congress is always holding hearings and calling people in to testify about a situation that occurred. What power does Congress have when testimonies are given? Change laws? They're not the judicial branch of government so what's the real benefit of having congressional hearings?

    Judge won't order Flint bottled water program to resume
    Associated Press


    The Flint Journal reports that U.S. District Judge Judith Levy sided with the state, which announced an end to the program on April 6. Tests show Flint is far below the federal action level for lead as it recovers from a lead-contaminated water crisis, some residents and Mayor Karen Weaver say bottled water should remain available until home water lines are replaced, a job that will last until 2020.
