Basically,for all intents and purposes,he has committed murder by giving these women the HIV disease willingly and with malicious intent.Granted,these women aren't dead,yet, from the disease,however,it is incurable and IS a death sentence in the long run as carriers eventually develop AIDS and die.
He should be executed.
Can you prove that he infected these women, who are willing to have unprotected casual sex? When was the last time they were tested? How many other men have they had bareback sex with?

sounds like 4 counts of attempted murder to me, no different than taking a syringe of infected blood and sticking someone with it.
They got stuck with something, but it certainly wasn't a syringe.

Ok, so the guy should have said something, however, when are people going to take responsibility for their own actions, by that I mean the women involved. Obviously they had no problem jumping into bed with the guy and frankly it's just as much your fault as it is his.

Yes there is a difference, if that would have happened, it's something completely out of your control. These women had an option, they chose to sleep with the guy.

Please know your facts in regard to HIPAA compliance and HIV. If left untreated, HIV can eventually turn into AIDS. Treatment has come a long way since the 1980s when there was no hope. If these women get proper care from a healthcare professional and remain compliant with their treatments and medication, it is not necessarily a "death sentence." This information was also released because it is considered "intent to kill." Any time someone is charged with a crime, it becomes public knowledge, regardless if they obtained this man's consent or not. I agree, the women should have been smarter - SAFE SEX SAVES.

Then he'll spread the HIV to all the prisoners. They need to tattoo HIV on his forehead to prevent him from spreading it further!
I say tattoo it on his back side as well.

It sounds like some of you are saying he can have sex with whoever he wants and it is the women's fault for not wearing a condom. Surely him telling a woman he was HIV+ would have ALSO kept her from contracting the disease no? I believe very much in safe sex, but I also believe if you know you are infected, it is your responsibility to tell your potential partners. The article is about his responsibility and breaking the law.

Lets build a prison for these type of idiots. A place where they can't hurt no one else!
Hopefully our friend Charlie Sheen doesn't end up with Aids, very possible with his type of lifstyle!

Definitely not a cousin or even know the guy for that matter. I just don't like when people portray these men and woman who contract such things as victims. When this is, for the most part, a preventable disease that could have been prevented with simply using portection. You wouldn't knowingly share a needle, why knowingly have unprotected sex.
"...why knowingly have unprotected sex.(sic)"?

Because society--primarily through the entertainment media--has portrayed indiscriminate sex as perfectly acceptable. At least this is the message being conveyed to our youth. For example, when then President Bill Clinton was testifying about soliciting BJs from a young intern, there was no mention of prophylactics being used--cigars, but no prophylactics.

Some of you are amazing. Blaming the victims here. Get off your moral high horses. You realize that you could easily get something from your spouse? The one you trust that is most assuredly #*$)ing around on you. If that were to happen, would you be ticked if people were saying it was YOUR fault? You don't know these women. Having sex is not a crime that is punishable by death. Good grief.
