Michael Moore: Attorney General should arrest Snyder

Michael Moore, the famed Flint movie director held a press conference Saturday in Flint amid the water crisis that has paralyzed the city of over 100,000 residents. 
 
During the press conference, Moore asked for President Obama to visit Flint and that the Attorney General should arrest Governor Snyder. 
 
But Moore's impromptu press conference was not met without those who opposed him being there. Arthur Woodson said, "all he's going to do is make money out of a documentary and won't even send money back to the victims of the city of Flint."
 
Democratic Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders called for Snyder's removal from office, and those comments were echoed at the rally in Flint. 
 
The NAACP also weighed in Saturday releasing a press release. "It is not extraordinary or unrealistic to expect the water our children drink and bathe in, the water we use to prepare meals to nourish and sustain our bodies, to be free of toxic chemicals. To expose an entire city of nearly 100,000 residents, many of them children, to toxic lead is, if not criminal, is at the very least inhumane."
 
The press conference lasted roughly 20 minutes in which Moore closed by saying he would be visiting Flint much more often in the next few months.
