Man without arms denied housing due to inability to provide fingerprints: Should alternative methods of identification be provided to those with disabilities?

Man without arms denied housing due to inability to provide fingerprints: Should alternative methods of identification be provided to those with disabilities?
  • No person should be denied assistance due to any disability.

    If a person does not have arms, they probably need some type of assistance in their lives. There are plenty of other ways we can identify a person besides fingerprints. For example, they could do a saliva test or use the man's foot print. People need to step outside of the box to come up with ways to get help to those in need. In this case, the lack of arms should be more than enough to qualify this man for assistance.

  • Yes, I thiink so.

    Why the banks could not take a DNA sample, toe print or scan the eye as an alternative to a fingerprint? Wu was later granted a "green passage" by Zhengzhou's Housing Management Bureau to help complete the process, according to the New Zealand Herald. The city's highest housing authority said the special path would also be available to other members of the disabled community so as not to disqualify them from obtaining mortgage loans too.

  • It violates the law.

    It violates this man's civil rights to deny him the opportunity to have housing because of something out of his control. The man ought to be able to submit foot prints or some other item that would be able to prove his identification without finger prints. It is not his fault that he doesn't have them and he deserves the same chances as everyone else.

  • Alternative methods of identification should be provided to those with disabilities

    Alternative methods of identification should be provided to those with disabilities. The fact that a man who can't provide finger prints because of no arms is government absurdity at its worst. There are plenty of ways to verify identity. It just seems that lazy government employees can't seem to garner the logic to think outside a rulebook.
