How do these apply to the Flint situation? (Please be specific about the principles, ethics, and responsibilities that were or were not appropriately followed by the actors involved in the case and in the Flint crisis).
What specific actions do you believe should have been taken by the analysts involved in the case and in Flint, as well as the public and community leaders in the latter, to successfully (and ethically) deal with the situation?
