A criminal commits a crime that is complicit with other actors. There is suspicion that the crime occurred, so the actors communicate amongst one another to coordinate deniability. However the accusations persist and evidence is uncovered that cannot be denied, and it is further learned that ten people died as a direct result of the actions of all the [criminal] actors. The principal actor then admits that the crime occurred and apologizes and says he will provide everyone concerned with a timeline to account for the events that led up to the criminal activity. The suggested postulation of this individual who is the states highest government official defies comprehension, in as much as there is no question that the factor of trust is a foregone conclusion, it stands to reason that anyone who manufactures a lie, or a series of lies will continue to lie in order to exonerate themselves from culpability, irregardless of admission. An admission, in this case, is the result of exposure. It is nothing more than arrogance, which further insults the intelligence of the people that he has done irreparable harm to; however, the one aspect of his speech that he did get right was the fact that the buck does stop with him, which makes him accountable, not only for his actions, but for the actions of his staff.
Snyder and his republican cohorts passed laws that overturned city elections with the use of emergency managers who systematically fired elected politicians for what they viewed as incompetence, which to me violates the principals of our constitution; however, with that said, Snyder should now apply that same law upon himself and step down and allow the process to move forward in a competent manner which allows for comprehensive solutions. No governor should ever have the power to do what Snyder did. The results of his actions and his party speak for themselves.
