    California governor considers bill for reducing penalties for spreading HIV

    California lawmakers gave a green light Monday to a bill that would reduce penalties for knowingly exposing someone to HIV without telling them, claiming the current felony charge for the crime is discriminatory.




    The bill, SB 239, will now head to Gov. Jerry Brown for his signature or veto, the Los Angeles Times reported.
    State Sen. Scott Wiener, a San Francisco Democrat who introduced the bill, said the current law discriminates against people with HIV because people who expose others with different viruses get only a misdemeanor rather than a felony.

    “Right now HIV is singled out for uniquely harsh treatment as a felony,” Wiener said during the floor debate, according to the L.A. Times. He added that modern drugs allow someone with HIV to be noninfectious to others, while the felony charge may discourage some from getting tested.
    “These laws do not prevent HIV infections. All they do is stigmatize people living with HIV and reduce access to testing and care.”

    Sorry, but anyone who knowingly spreads a disease that can kill you deserves to be charged with a felony!

    The alt-left & the alt-right are both violent, race-hate groups whose obsession with identity politics is tearing America apart.

    I've never met an anti-Semite who thought they were anti-Semitic. Remember that the Nazis didn't see themselves as bad people. If don't like Jews or think Hitler was misunderstood, you are an idiot and can go screw yourself.

    The penalty of murder for shooting someone is harsh and discriminatory. It wasn't the fault of the gunman that the stupid victim stood in front of the firearm when it was discharged.

    Some deadly weapons are more PC than others.

    What else is to be expected from the Land of Hollywood? Those teachers are probably union members, have profited from exploitation of the public, and now wish to escape with their ill-gotten gains.

    I can see how a San Francisco Legislator would want to lessen the penalties for spreading the AIDS.

    Right now, that is probably curtailing a lot of late night Booty calls for uncaring queers......to say nothing of the economic devastation it has created for pimps and ho's.......

    My best advice for Californians is:

    --Don't butt fuck queers.
    --Use protection with whore's.
    --Maybe know a little about whatever you're fucking at any given time.

    Me?

    I require that all my goat girlfriends have resume's. Had to dump one, because she was fucking a Mule on the side. (I could never compete with "Petey." We're buds, and, he really is hung....like...well, like a Mule......)


    JUST KIDDING!

    I do NOT bugger farm animals.





    Gave that up a couple a years ago.....

    Al Swearengen: He's got a mean way of being happy.
