It’s also in the Daily News, as reported on the forum by DeedleBeetle:

“Money Quote” from the DA’s spox:
“”Nobody’s sick, nobody’s hurt, it’s being taken care of,” Schmetterer said. “It hasn’t affected operations at all.””

Spokesman has either not had to deal with this alone, is hiding behind “not known to transmit disease”, or is lying through his proboscis.

What happens when his ADAs start losing cases because they’re tired from bites and prep at home?

Perhaps the DA’s people should talk to Hikind’s people to get a perspective on “nobody’s hurt”.

Did you really say…”lying through his proboscis”?? LLLolll.

But you’re right, NoBugs. It’s not funny to think that some really guilty “. . . mother rapers. father stabbers. Father rapers!. . .'(Arlo Guthrie, Alice’s Restaurant) might get off because the ADA trying the case didn’t sleep for a few nights or is itchy and scratchy and feeling otherwise icky!

And even if the ADA is okay, what about the jurors who have to sit in one place for hours where they might become lunch for those horrible beasties? What about when they’re in deliberations and can’t just get up and leave without permission? What about if they’re dealing with bbs at their own home? What if they’re itchy and otherwise distracted from paying attention to the presentation of evidence and from considering the defense case, if any.?

It’s just horrible!

And think about the “pens” behind the courtrooms where prisoners come and go and there are three turns of shifts of court and corrections officers.. AAAAAAgghhh, don’t even think about Rikers and the Manhattan and Brooklyn Detention Centers…..ewwwww…
