It really erks me , how after 35 years , and much documented facts about h.I.v. How ignorant people , law enforcement , and emt and the judicial system seems to treat people living with this infection . In Nevada a very racist state already , really has and still is treating my son who was born with the infection like he has the blue boner plaque , and he is always being unjustly treated ; whether at school , in the neighborhood , and in therapy , and now they are trying to destroy him legally

I have a multi disabled , low functioning , positive son , who has been charged for assaulting a sheriff , and for exerbating Silva with a communical disease . In Racist Nevada ( my son is African American ) They have been trying to put any and every kind of reason to have him in their horrific justice system . My son is in the autism spectrum , and is at the kindergarten / first grade level of education . And even though he is 19 years of age , he has a mind of an 8 - 10 year of age person

It is quite unfortunate that people tend to go more to the wrong sources for information. My advice is, keep quiet if you don't have the right information. It is better not to say anything than to give potentially destructive information.

My mistake: Make that 35 years!!! Willie Campbell, a man who is HIV positive, was convicted in Dallas for spitting in a police officer's eye and mouth. The article says that the jury convicted him because "the jury found that Campbell's HIV-positive saliva was a deadly weapon. Can anybody believe this happened in 2008!!! Campbell is still in jail.

This has been going on forever! What ever happened to the hiv-positive guy from Texas sentenced to 30 years in jail for spiting a police officer on the face? No one did anything about this. The guy was obviously an ass hole, but: Does he deserved to be locked down for 30 years? The stigma towards people with hiv will continue as long as even the "justice" system keeps screwing up like this without any rectification or consequences.

So glad to see someone is paying attention. If people would read all documented info of where HIV1 comes from, they could come to this conclusion on their own. The sad part is no one ever bothers to find these things out until they are faced with them.

Thank you, Oriol, for your article. There seems to be no headway with people thinking HIV can be transmitted through saliva. My sister's husband, several years ago, took a swig of water from my water bottle by mistake, and they both were worried sick that I had infected him. It was so insulting that I can't even explain.
