Skip to comments.Spreadin' the glove: TSA infecting U.S.?

Those latex gloves Transportation Security Administration agents wear while giving airline 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."

Even if they put on a 'fresh' pair of gloves with each new assault victim are they following any hygenic procedures? Are they washing their hands between changing gloves so as not to contaminate the exterior of the new glove when putting it on?
Do they purposely NOT change gloves between passengers as a further threat that people better use the Rapescan machines or they risk contracting a communicable disease from a dirty TSA glove?
How about spreading those Bed Bugs that are infiltrating every nook and cranny of New York?
Or fecal matter...Blech!
As long as they don’t use the same condom I’m okay with it.
"How Bedbugs Spread"
"Bedbugs often spread by hitching rides on people's clothing. They jump from host to host when people brush up against each other in crowds (yet another reason to keep your distance on the subway)..."
At this point I would demand that they they change into a clean pair of gloves before they touched me, and I would demand to see them get the gloves from the original container in my presence.
I’ve been wondering about this.
I’ll bet the TSA agent who broke open the poor guy’s uroscopy bag didn’t bother to change gloves before moving on to the next target.
So our choice is what? Herpes or cancer?
The democrat party as a unit needs to be impeached. Not by Congress, but by the people. Driven from the land. Driven back into the slimepit from which it came.
I think we can kiss the airline industry good-bye. Nobody in the gov’t cares, and nobody in the industry is making a stink (from what I can tell).
That is just nasty.
People pierce their private parts, this isn’t a question of this happening, just a question of when.
The lawsuits from this thing are going to reverberate for a decade
Last night I joked about the success of the TSA pat downs
to a friend saying next they intend to use them at the Court House and at the VA -and before anyone can get seen by their
Doctor at any hospital or clinic. And at the friendly local
Drivers licence facility.He just looked and said That is not funny Bob.
We have yet to control our borders from terrorists or illegal aliens or even bed bugs.

What’s the fine if you ask them to put on clean gloves?
I was wondering when this issue would gain some traction.
When I was in high school, the wrestling teams in our area all had their season cancelled because kids were coming down with strange skin diseases from the wresting mats.
Tell ‘em you’ve got a nasty STD, caught in Africa, and complicated by flesh-eating bacteria. And,,, you’re on your way to a special clinic that deals with life-threatening diseases.
Yeah they can be sued for that.
