Seriously? NYC sent fingerprints of unvaxxed teachers to FBI

As the months and years go by, we continue to learn more and more about the government’s handling of the pandemic response. And the more we learn, the uglier the picture becomes. I’m not just talking about the federal government here, either. State and municipal government leaders were drinking deeply from the cup of executive authority during a declared state of emergency as well. Today’s story has elements of both and it even involves the Federal Bureau of Investigation, potentially adding another dark mark to the FBI’s record. It’s being alleged that the municipal government of New York City sent the fingerprints of public school teachers who were fired after refusing to take the COVID injections to the Bureau. They further assigned a “problem code” to the teachers’ records, impeding their ability to find new work elsewhere. This sounds like something that would happen in China or Russia, but it was reportedly taking place right here in America. (Free Beacon)

New York City sent the fingerprints of unvaccinated public school teachers to the FBI, the educators allege in a lawsuit against the city government.

The city also flagged the teachers, whom the city fired for refusing to take the COVID-19 vaccine, with a “problem code” that can affect their ability to get another job, Fox News reported.

“Fingerprints are sent with that flag to the FBI and the New York Criminal Justice Services, so it impacts their ongoing ability to get employment at other places,” said John Bursch, a lawyer representing the teachers in their suit against the city.

For years on end, we have covered stories about how it’s almost impossible to get a teacher fired in New York City, even when they were accused of sexual contact with the children. (That’s still happening, by the way.) The unions are too powerful and the politicians fear their reprisal. But along came the COVID vaccine mandates and suddenly they could fire teachers at the drop of a hat. So let’s put this in perspective. You can diddle a 15-year-old girl and keep your job. But if you refuse the jab, you’re going to be hounded to the ends of the earth.

Much as we saw in the military, New York City fired nearly 2,000 people for refusing to take the experimental “vaccines.” That number includes the teachers who were dismissed by the city’s Department of Education. They approved almost none of the applications for waivers based on religious or medical reasons.

The Mayor has now lifted the vaccine mandate for city workers, but the ones who were fired are not being automatically given their jobs back. Nor are they receiving back pay. They have to apply for a job if they want one and do so with a “problem code” on their record. Some of the dismissed teachers have reported being rejected for jobs, even in other states.

That brings us back to the question of what the FBI had to do with these situations. What “crime” were the teachers accused of committing? They refused to follow a municipal policy and lost their jobs as a result. How in the world does that constitute a federal crime? And what is the FBI doing with their records, including their fingerprints?

This just sounds like yet another example of the Bureau being weaponized against anyone and everyone who failed to toe the Biden line and comply with federal dictates. You’re not allowed to question The Narrative, and if you do, G-men will be unleashed upon you and your ability to have a career and earn a living for yourself may be endangered. I’m still no fan of the teachers’ unions in general, but in this instance, I’ll be taking their side. These people were hosed by their own government at multiple levels and the “rules” they broke turned out to be unscientific nonsense and potentially even physically dangerous for some.
