    Border worker disregarded TB warning

    i think he should be fired not put at a desk.

    ATLANTA - A globe-trotting Atlanta lawyer with a dangerous strain of tuberculosis was allowed back into the U.S. by a border inspector who disregarded a computer warning to stop him and don protective gear, officials said Thursday. The inspector has been removed from border duty

    The unidentified inspector explained that he was no doctor but that the infected man seemed perfectly healthy and that he thought the warning was merely "discretionary," officials briefed on the case told The Associated Press. They spoke on condition of anonymity because the matter is still under investigation.

    This was done purposely, a "test" case if you will, to gauge public reaction and likely to impose further draconian measures on travelers which will probably include a health screening before you're allowed your smart-chip-enabled passport.

    What a coincidence that his father-in-law works for the CDC.

    Someone who has TB knows he has it. Someone who has a father in law doing ressearch on TB definitely knows he has it, and the ramifications/consequences of boarding a plane loaded with passengers. If the Government knows he has TB then he MUST know.

    Can you think of another reason why this guy got on a plane knowing he could infect many people?

    It sounds very fishy to me. Even more fishy if he doesn't do any jail time.
    If someone with aids knowingly infects someone, there is jail time for THEM.

    If it ends up that no one actually did get infected, even more evidence it was a test.
    Maybe he doesn't REALLY have TB.

    Yes, he knew he had TB.

    The guy is an attorney. I suspect that he thought that his wedding was more important than the rules.
