HIV as an assault weapon

The news today contains the following article about a man who criminally infected his partners with the HIV virus. This is the kind of activity that really hits hard all of us at the heart of the AIDS pandemic. Lack of sensitivity, lack of intelligence, or lack of a moral compass in one person can taint everyone in the community, both literally and figuratively.

On the other hand, perhaps people just still do not understand the meaning of living with this virus. Education seems, again, to be important so that we know what to do to avoid the disease, but also what we need to do to be compassionate for ourselves and our potential partners. I am truly sorry for the victims of this man.
