Hacker group "Anonymous" targets Flint water crisis

The online hacktivist group, "Anonymous," is declaring war on government leaders connected to the Flint water crisis.

The group released a 4 minute Youtube video Wednesday, promising action for the 2014 water switch to the Flint River, which lead to a spike in lead poisoning cases and a shortage of clean water in the city.

In the video, a person says "We feel that there currently exists enough evidence to arrest Governor Snyder for either voluntary or involuntary manslaughter."

"We encourage the city of Flint to be vocal and demand that Governor Snyder face criminal charges, Anonymous will stand beside you."

"It all stops now, we must remind the city officials of Flint we do not forget and we do not forgive." 

This video comes as published reports say Michigan.gov and the website for Hurley Medical Center in Flint were both targets of a recent cyber-attack. 

It's unclear if "Anynymous" was behind those disruptions.
