Michael Johnson is a sick dickhead...... Wanna bet is was "revenge" for getting HIV in the first place?
ohnson told detectives that over the past year he has had five to 10 sexual partners. Documents said Johnson neither wore a condom nor told the partners that he has HIV. Two of them asked Johnson if he has any diseases, to which he said no.
The man told police that he was diagnosed with HIV and gonorrhea about a month after he and Johnson had sex in Johnson’s dorm on the Lindenwood campus, according to court records.
This is the type of scum that I fully believe in the death penalty for.
Michael Johnson, 22, was charged with exposing gay lover to HIV
Police discover 32 sex tapes showing Johnson and a string of other people
Most films were made in room at Lindenwood University in St. Charles, Missouri, police said 31 unidentified men are captured in the explicit tapes
Investigation launched after a man claimed he caught HIV from Johnson
An HIV positive student accused of exposing a gay lover to the disease allegedly filmed himself having unprotected sex with other men in his university dorm room, police have claimed.
Detectives investigating Michael Johnson, 22, say they have seized a cache of videos allegedly filmed covertly showing him with a string of, as yet, unidentified people he picked up via social media.
Officers fear Johnson may have had intimate contact with more than 30 other men who might not know they are at risk of sexual diseases.

They were. The thing is that there has been a push on to decriminalize and destigmatize people who are HIV positive so that they don't feel bad. You know because people like this guy obviously shouldn't be made to feel any shame over their HIV status and what they have done about it whatsoever.
There is a reason why it remains a criminal act to know you are HIV positive and to knowingly have unprotected sex with uninfected partners. HIV still winds up killing you in the end.
There are at least 60 different strains of HIV-1 (human immunodeficiency virus). HIV-1 types have the shortest development period, rapidly growing from an infection to AIDS in about five years, when compared to other strains.

The thing is that they want to decriminalize things like this because they think it will help the stigma attached to people with HIV.
I'm sorry, but things like this deserve to have a stigma attached to them. If that causes some spillover onto others who are positive and doing things right, well, that can't be helped and I'm sorry about it. But, you tell me, which is worse: decriminalizing what this piece of trash did in order to spare any perceived hurt to these mythical others who may or may not exist or leaving the penalties in place and risking some potential spillover to those others that really can't be quantified?
“It’s simply not fair that someone having been diagnosed with a chronic, treatable medical condition should automatically be subjected to a different set of criminal laws,” Coons said. “A disturbing number of state and local criminal laws pertaining to individuals with HIV/AIDS are rooted not in science, but in outdated fear. They run counter to effective public health strategies, discourage HIV testing, and perpetuate unfair stigma and discrimination against people living with HIV/AIDS – people who are our friends, family, and neighbors.”
“Rather than recognizing that HIV/AIDS is a treatable medical condition, these laws perpetuate the idea that HIV is a deadly weapon and people with HIV/AIDS are dangerous criminals,” he continued. “Our laws need to catch up to our science, and this bill would take an important step in that direction.”
Coons said his bill, which would require an interagency review of federal and state laws that criminalize certain actions by people living with HIV, came about because of charges levied against HIV-positive defendants including aggravated assault, attempted murder, and bioterrorism.
His bill complements a House effort introduced in May by Reps. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.), which expresses the sense of Congress that federal and state laws “not place unique or additional burdens on such individuals solely as a result of their HIV status.”
