3 Years Later, No One Is in Jail Over Flint Tainted Water

DETROIT --- Michigan's attorney general in 2016 promised to investigate "without fear or favor" the scandal over Flint's lead-tainted drinking water and pledged that state regulators would be locked up for fudging data and misleading the public. Yet three years later, no one is behind bars. Instead, seven of 15 defendants have pleaded no contest to misdemeanors, some as minor as disrupting a public meeting. Their records eventually will be scrubbed clean. That has angered some people in Flint who believe key players who could have prevented the lead disaster are getting off easy. Four of five people at the state Department of Environmental Quality who were on the front line of the ...Keep on reading: 3 Years Later, No One Is in Jail Over Flint Tainted Water.....»»

Wade helps Heat beat Bulls 117-103

By JOHN JACKSON,  Associated Press CHICAGO (AP) — Dwyane Wade had 14 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists in his final game in his hometown, helping the Miami Heat beat the skidding Chicago Bulls 117-103 on Saturday (Sunday, PHL time). Wade, who turned 37 on Thursday, plans to retire at the end of his 16th NBA season. He got a warm reception in his return, hearing several loud ovations throughout the night. Josh Richardson had 26 points for Miami, and Dion Waiters finished with 21. The Heat had dropped two in a row. Chicago lost its 10th straight game. Zach LaVine scored 22 points for the Bulls, and Bobby Portis had 21. Lauri Markkanen finished with 20 points and nine rebounds. Wade played for the Bulls during the 2016-17 season, and the team honored him with a video tribute during the game's first timeout in the first quarter. The sellout crowd gave Wade a standing ovation and he responded by waving to the fans. Wade got another loud ovation when he entered the game. He shot an air ball on his first attempt, but then nailed a 3-pointer on his second shot. He had nine first-half points, but the Heat trailed 57-55 at the break. Richardson had 11 points on 4-for-6 shooting and Wade added five in the third quarter as Miami took an 83-76 lead into the fourth. With Miami leading 91-86 early in the final quarter, the Heat went on a 14-2 run to put the game away. Wade received another loud ovation when he exited with two minutes to play. TIP-INS Heat: Wade entered with 997 career points against Chicago. He now has scored 1,000 points against eight NBA teams. Bulls: Rookie C Wendell Carter Jr. is going to have surgery on his left thumb, but no date has been set for the procedure. He is expected to be sidelined for eight to 12 weeks. "He's meeting with his family and his representation and our medical staff," coach Jim Boylen said. "Our heart's broken for him. You know, 44 games in, he's done everything that we've asked him to do from a competitive standpoint and a developmental standpoint." CHICAGO G.O.A.T. Wade was asked if he was the greatest Chicago-area basketball player of all-time. "I have no idea," he said. "When people have asked me who I think the best player who was born and raised in Chicago, I always go with Isiah Thomas." Thomas averaged 19.2 points and 9.3 assists in 13 NBA seasons. He also won two NBA championships with the Detroit Pistons. Thomas tweeted during the game he thought Wade was the best player to come out of Chicago. "I will be second to him any day!" Thomas posted. Wade entered Saturday's game with career averages of 22.2 points, 5.4 assists and 4.7 rebounds. He has three NBA titles. UP NEXT Heat: At Boston Celtics on Monday night to conclude a four-game road trip. Bulls: At Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday......»»

Pistons hold on without Drummond, beat Heat 98-93

By NOAH TRISTER,  AP Sports Writer DETROIT (AP) — Blake Griffin had 32 points and 11 rebounds, and the Detroit Pistons overcame an early exit by injured Andre Drummond to beat the Miami Heat 98-93 on Friday night (Saturday, PHL time). Dwyane Wade scored 20 points for the Heat, but missed badly on an off-balance 3-pointer in the final seconds that could have tied the game. Detroit led by 16 in the first half and was up 53-39 at halftime, but the Pistons were outscored 30-12 in the third quarter. They rebounded in the fourth and held on. Drummond left with a nasal injury after being hit in the face in the first quarter by the arm of Miami's James Johnson. Drummond finished with no points in 7:14, and backup Zaza Pachulia scored only two — on a tip-in that put Detroit up 94-91 with 26.7 seconds remaining. The Heat were done in by their abysmal foul shooting. They went 5 of 19 at the line, with center Hassan Whiteside missing all eight of his attempts. Luke Kennard scored 22 points for the Pistons, and Reggie Bullock added 19. Griffin finished an assist shy of a triple-double. TRIBUTE Wade received a nice ovation when he checked into the game in the first quarter, and a message went up on the scoreboard congratulating him on his career. This is Wade's final NBA season, and the Heat won't come to Detroit again unless the teams meet in the playoffs. TIP-INS Heat: Miami was without G Josh Richardson (illness). Pistons: G Ish Smith, who missed 19 games after a right adductor tear in December, left with adductor tightness in his third game back. UP NEXT Heat: Visit the Chicago Bulls on Saturday night. Pistons: Host the Sacramento Kings on Saturday night......»»
