How difficult is it to say, "Dude. Hairnet."?

But I guess when you are more concerned with trying to justify your job's existence...

Some days I think that if Hitler had just claimed that the Holocaust was for charity (if it really happened that is). then people would get outraged that the Allies thought it was necessary to go to war against Germany.

Inspector probably wouldnt have been an ass if the firefighter hasnt been one as well. And I don't see where it mentions them being fined. All in all it could have been handled better by both sides.

Just because your doing a good deed doesnt mean you get to act like a wanker.

They just went out to make sure people weren't being served contaminated food, or being put at risk.

No fines were issued (contrary to the misleading title).

THIS.

Although it's not necessarily justifying their existence so much as it is sad little failures of humanity using their tiny bit of power to punish the rest of the world. Those kinds of positions attract sociopathic personalities like flies to shait.

Yes, I agree. Every citizen of the United States has their God Given right to explosive rice diarrhea during a time of disaster.

My anatomy, physiology, and pathology teacher in massage school used to run the Clarke County Health Department. She used to tell us students all these stories about contaminated food served in casino buffets. There was one kitchen worker who caused a hepatitis outbreak at the Circus Circus because he never changed his gloves and cost the casino $90+ million in lawsuits.

The health department over there might have pricks working for them, but sometimes you have to be a prick.

No, no no. You have to approach it with the Fox News: FAIR AND BALANCED approach.

Communist Food Safety Inspectors force innocent Firefighter at Gunpoint to put on a hair net, so that he may orally service gay men while serving food as required by the Obama Administration. Coming up: What is the Government doing enforcing what Jesus should be doing for you.

Bootstraps, Sir. These people were using their bootstraps. How dare they be bothered with such pesky things as hair nets and gloves.

Every American man and woman can help by grabbing a shovel and rushing into a disaster area with no plans or prepeartion. This is what FARK threads have taught me. Anyone who says otherwise is an evil big government authoritarian who wants everyone to be dependent on Craig Fugate's left nipple. Or something. I dunno. FARK logic.

so how much was the fine?

Did anyone read the article? Nobody was fined. The inspector came in supposedly to give recommendations, but instead acted a bit like a duche and did a inspections as he would on a restaurant, then handed them a list of violations. No fine was given, and it wasn't an official inspection so nobody will be held accountable for the violations.

In response to the firefighter acting like a complete douche. Honestly, to have the power to fine that guy and not do it should make that inspector a candidate for sainthood.

No no no, idiot. Not everybody can come into a disaster area. If you are not union, we don't want your frigging help. We would rather do it ourselves.

there was no fine
the inspector was being a prick
when you are incapable of helping, but willing to criticize those who do
that makes you less than useless.
But I hate new york anyway.
Because this is how it works there.
Good people do the hard work and are there for emergencies
while the peole they elect shovel them over with politics and job justification for their lesser minions..
and they swallow it
So good on the bureaucrats, all hail.

I'm going to say that depends entirely upon the scale of the disaster at hand. Sandy was (is) a mess but it was manageable. Give me a disaster on the scale of the 2004 tsunami or 2010 China quake and I will let you know exactly what you can do with your hairnet and food thermometer. Not that either one of those examples left all that many people to feed within the disaster areas but still..

If you can take sensible steps to protect people from unnecessary risk then you should do so.

Perhaps an inspection of the tent where all the volunteers from the health department are cooking in an effort to aid their fellow hurricane victims might reveal a few potential fire hazards.

You know what the leftists on Fark have taught me? That these people should just starve while waiting for the government to get them food. No one else should be allowed to help. Government is all, people are nothing.

And in the unlikely event that a wretched volunteer (ugh, those disgusting people) is allowed to help, then we must not use common sense with them. Let the people starve before giving in to common sense.

Exactly! Every American has a god-given right to rice-water explosive diarrhea, and, in the moments after a disaster happens, untrained and unprepared people rushing into a disaster area and placing further strain on rescue operations while endangering themselves and others!

Bootstraps!
