Life in Prison for Spreading HIV
« on: May 07, 2007, 04:12:35 PM »
http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory?id=3147847

I am torn here.  My morality says "Yeah, this guy deserves life in prison" but the other side of me says, "it takes two to tango".  I guess its the last paragraph that leaves me questioning.

"They want to say Willie Atkins gave all these people AIDS, spread HIV all over the place," Franklin said. "They can't be living in some parallel universe where they've never heard of AIDS. It can't be his fault alone, if he has any fault at all."

The "dangerous activity" each side engaged in "cancels each other out," he said.

What do ye think about the "canceling out" defense?

LIFE is not a race to the grave with the intention of arriving safely
in a pretty and well-preserved body, but, rather to skid in broadside,
thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming--WOW! WHAT A
RIDE!!!

Well he was having sex with underage boys, lying about his status, had previous felonies, and was in Texas, so..

MIlkie is right. This is more complicated than a simple fail to disclose issue. He got busted bedding a 15 year old boy. Nevertheless, the key issue in the report is one of HIV transmission.

What I found interesting was that the onus was on the man in question to prove he warned his partners he was positive, not the other way around.

Oh and the comments. Seriously, check out the comments posted beneath the article.

Wanna take a guess as how many of those people have had unprotected sex outside of a committed relationship?

Maybe I should have left a comment "you'll get tested"..

Or maybe they're reading "Am I Infected" ?

The "burden of proof" can become so tangled up.  I think he should get life for having sex with minors.  I think they hung the HIV thing on there to make sure he would GET life. 
     Can't believe those comments!  I must say, of the ones I read, poor seoulborne looks like he is fighting a losing battle.  I STILL cannot believe how some people are!  I would be embarrassed to be related to any of them!

Wow, I can't believe the comments below the article.  It's almost as if my mom's family is posting.  I am amazed at the guy who thinks mosquitos are able to transmit HIV and kissing as well.  I am mainly for him going to prison for him targeting the minors.  The non-disclosure thing is a tricky issue to me.  On one hand, it is the right thing to do for someone to protect their status, but on the other hand the HIV negative people who do not protect themselves by insisting on a condom regardless of what the person says their status is should not get a free pass either.  The burden of stopping the spread of HIV needs to go both ways, not just for the positive folk.

I don't think there is any question that disclosure must be MANDATORY in the case of a minor (I'm not advocating sex with minors) and has surely been taken into account. I do NOT expect a 15yo to ask "are you hiv negative?".

pish posh.

Sounds like he was blowing alot of people who weren't complaining too much. 

Of the several articles I read on this, the only unprotected sex stated was him blowing someone.

And you don't get hiv from a hummer.

OMG NO WAY DINGO!

I'll check for some references to see if this is true.  I've already started in on them.  They better recognize!  Check out the comments NOW.  Stupid typos!

I'm not saying for sure he didn't assbang young bois :) but the articles I've read, a few because I found it odd, only repeat the mantra of 'unprotected sex... which could be a handjob to media monkeys and zealots... one video mentioned did show him performing oral sex on someone.

Sounds like he wanked off mostly and blew them and filmed it.

he actually got sent up the river for soliciting a child for sex... and since this was his 3rd strike, that's why the sentence was excessive.... not for anything to do with hiv.
