Are you f*cking kidding me?!
CBS Boston has a story about the DHS planning to release bacteria into the MBTA tunnels to test the "safety" of the subway.
The DHS has installed sensors in the MBTA system to detect biological agents and they’ve been testing to see how the air moves.
Now they want to release particles in the tunnels to see how well the sensors work.
The tests will be held at stations in Cambridge and Somerville.
Federal officials say they test the subway sensors by releasing dead bacteria called B-subtilis. They say it is used in food supplements, has been rigorously tested and has no adverse health effects for low exposure in healthy people.
From the DHS report
These studies, to be performed at peak operational capacity for trains and passengers, are designed to most closely simulate the conditions that would likely exist in the event of a true bio-terrorist attack.
The U.S. Govt. has a documented history of subjecting citizens and servicemen to these kind of tests, many without their knowledge or consent or via deception.

And these are just a few samples.
