In Short:

--- Quote ---Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf, a Democrat, ignored established science and signed into law a bill that further criminalizes people with HIV, hepatitis B and other communicable diseases. The bill has passed the state legislature with bipartisan support.

Specifically, the law, House Bill 103 (HB 103), enhances penalties and creates felonies, mostly for people living with a communicable disease. What’s more, the law doesn’t require proof that a transmission occurred.

The law creates new offenses for exposing a police officer to saliva, blood, urine or other bodily fluid, making it a first-degree misdemeanor punishable by up to five years in prison and $10,000 fine. If the defendant has a communicable disease, such as HIV and hepatitis B, the offense is upgraded to a third-degree felony, punishable by up to seven years in prison and a $15,000 fine.

The law also creates a second-degree felony offense for people who knew or “should have known” they had a reportable, communicable disease and their actions could have transmitted a communicable disease. This offense is punishable by up to 10 years in prison and up to $25,000 in fines.

It is just crazy what the Politian's think and do. 

Then again the part is "police officers" and if you look at them cross-eyed and not even part of the incident they will charge you with interfering with police business.  It's all about their control and forced respect.

Just hate it that people don't understand science but if you follow the money the prisons aren't full enough so not meeting the quotas for the private investors.
