We all watch the vaccine mandate protests in New York.
Many NYC teachers and officials were fired because they disagreed with the vaccine mandate being imposed by city leaders.
The mandate prompted a massive lawsuit and now lawyers fighting for the teachers made a bombshell discovery.
Teachers and workers fired for refusing vaccination had their files – including fingerprints – sent to the FBI and the New York Criminal Justice Services.
Michael Kane, founder of Teacher For Choice wrote about the discovery and included an audio link to the testimony:
On February 8, 2023, while arguing on behalf of fired NYC workers who declined covid vaccination, attorney John Bursch stated in open court that unvaccinated teachers in New York City were flagged with problem codes in their personnel files, and when that occurred “their fingerprints are sent with that flag to the FBI and the New York Criminal Justice Services.”
You can listen to Bursch make this statement at the 5:30 mark of the audio recording of the court proceeding.
Attorneys representing the city have some explaining to do because on February 8th they claimed in court that those fired for refusing to be vaccinated were not “removed for misconduct, but rather for not meeting a requirement for employment.”
According to report, NYC also collected DNA:
Violations of educators (and students) rights to their biometric information by NYC is no surprise to me. The first time I sued the city was back in 2020 over in-school covid testing and the privacy rights to the DNA in the specimen provided. Turned out the covid testing company then-mayor Bill de Blasio contracted – FULGENT GENETICS – reserved the right to utilize DNA samples obtained from covid testing and catalogue it in proprietary libraries the company owned. Also turned out Fulgent had close ties to the Chinese Government.
The city now has a lot of explaining to do.
