Spreadin' the glove: TSA infecting U.S.?
Latex coverings 'have been in crotches, armpits,
and touching people who may be ill'
Those latex gloves Transportation
Security Administration agents wear while giving
passengers those infamous full-body pat-downs apparently
aren't there for the safety and security of passengers –
only the TSA agents.
That's the word being discussed on
dozens of online forums and postings after it was noted
that the agents wear the same gloves to pat down dozens,
perhaps hundreds, of passengers, not changing them even
though the Centers for Disease Control in its online
writings has emphasized the important of
clean hands to
prevent the exchange of loathsome afflictions.
"Herpes via latex glove ... ewwww,"
wrote one participant on the independence-minded
AR15 website forum.
Responding to the question, "Does the
TSA change latex gloves after each sexual assault?"
another wrote on the same forum, "I seriously doubt it.
Gloves are for their protection, not yours."
Join tens of thousands of Americans in a petition
demanding action against the intrusive airport screening
procedures implemented by Janet Napolitano
a letter to Congress, President Obama and others telling
them exactly what you think about the issue.
In fact, TSA
officials in both national and regional offices declined
to respond to WND inquiries about the policy for
changing gloves to prevent an infection that may be on
the clothes or body of one passenger during a pat-down
by TSA agents from being transmitted to other
passengers, including children, in line.
"For those of you who fly and opt for
the 'pat down,' you need to demand the TSA thugs change
their gloves. I've been watching on the news how they
operate. People are being searched [with] dirty gloves
... gloves that have been in crotches, armpits, touching
people who may be ill, people who pick their noses. Do
you want those gloves touching you?
"Those gloves are worn for the
protection of the agent," wrote the commentator.
"You must request that they change the gloves in your
presence or you risk acquiring venereal disease
resulting from a fondle/molest search."
