Bedbugs rebound with creepy vengeance

Full story: Lowell Sun 46
The dreaded blood-sucking "bedbug" is back. Most recently, they have surfaced at the Middlesex Driving Under the Influence of Liquor Program on the grounds of the Tewksbury Hospital. Full Story

I was at that program, and I was told that if I said anything about the bugs while I was there that I would not pass the class, I would not get a refund and I would not get the paperwork I needed to recover my drivers license. I was blackmailed into keeping quiet.
How is that legal?

If someone tried to blackmail me to keep quiet by using my license I just might have to slam something sharp into his face.
Really, how do these people get away with this?

judging by the above Article, and the comments. I have also seen 1st hand bed bug bites from 2 people in my classes at Gosslin Cape Cod and perminant scarring. I am wondering if this has been addressed as I have heard 1st hand that if you get bitten by bed bugs the Councilers threaten you with having to get to Lowell Hospital yourself by taxi, and return before they call Adult Court Probation and report you for failing their 14 day Court mandated LOCKUP. Probation will get called and YOU WILL GO TO DOC for 90 days in Prison. If you promise NOT to tell on them, they will BUG BOMB your room and you cannot complain any more. They NEVER call an exterminator, you sleep in same room that night, and cant tell any other patient. CRULE UNUSUAL PUNISH!!
The DUIL Program accepts clients on referral directly from the District Courts of the Commonwealth, usually upon conviction resulting from a 2nd drunk driving

Bedbugs are only a symptom. The underlying condition is the United States of America is now officially a third world nation.

Well what do you expect when the fudgesicle in the white house will not let Americans defend OUR borders. It is a well known fact that the filthy, stinking, burrito bellied, border jumping, wetback, mexicans carry numerous diseases into America when they break into our country. These diseases were common here at one time, but we eradicated them back in the 40s and 50s. We literally wiped out things like tuberculosis and numerous other diseases, but since the filthy mexicans and others have been coming through our open doors these old diseases have begun to make a comeback here. We are not a third world nation yet, but we are well on our way to becoming one. We should stop all this politically correct bullsh1t of letting these filthy disease ridden pukes into our once great nation, because if we don't, one day our great great grandchildren will stand over our graves and curse us for selling them out and giving away their country without the thought of a fight. I hate the thought of that, but the liberal sonsofb1tches in washington are going to make that a reality, unless we stop them dead in their tracks.

I know that this is terrible at the DUIL program. Granted, it's a DUI program, not a restaurant. However, the people there are intimidated by the "we will dismiss you, and phone your probation officer". The board of health should do more about correcting the problem, then have the people there threatened with getting kicked from there. I think this place needs more people that know what they are doing. Too much power, so little knowledge.
Yeah true it's not a restaurant.... Not many beds in a restaurant.

Actually, it's how this country's local, state and federal public health agencies reacted or failed to react to the first reports of bedbugs. So instead of dealing effectively with bedbugs as a potential major public health issue, it's now becoming a major impact on commerce as people re-think motel stays, bus rides and movie going for fear of bringing the bedbugs home.
Reminds me of how our country's public health agencies reacted or rather failed to react to HIV/AIDS as a potential major public health disaster.

Actually, lowell is full of lowlifes. All anyone has to do is take a look around and see them anywhere and everywhere in Lowell. There is not one section of Lowell that is immune from lowlifes. The highlands, belvedere, pawtucketville, centrralville, south lowell, downtown. Everywhere and any time of day or night, there are plenty of low lifes to see. And everybody knows, where there are lowlifes there will be bedbugs and countless other parasites, vermin and disease. Theres alot to like about Lowell bedbugs.

Oh stop! You're not serious. Everyone knows that white people don't take drugs, abuse the system, get government assistance, take advantage of others or otherwise tarnish the reputation of this God-fearing land of ours. We white people are, after all, made in God's image (Jesus was born in the Middle East btw). Only non-white folks do bad stuff. Only people with accents are evil. Only people born on other parts of the planet are not to be trusted. People with white skin, born in the good ol' U.S. of A. are the only people who should vote, decide, get good jobs and stuff and run things around here Yee-haw!
(Sorry, sometimes I get tired of all the racist crap - it's really ignorant.)
