Careless or guilty of assault?

 

Quote by Kaznkev Apparently many American states are repealing simular laws because it has been realised stimgatising people` with Aids helps no one



"Apparently" being the Operative word here I presume?

 

Thanks for joining in dark and welcome to the SH forums.

It is a tuffie innit.

I'm still pondering.

The mismatch makes me feel uncomfortable, what's good for one life threatener ought to be good for the others.

Flu in old folks homes does.


Once you have it, you have it for life, you do not get better! Which you may with flu

Flu is air-born, therefore indiscriminate, HIV need sexual contact

You could say 100% of HIV sufferers die


Purely for arguments sake - you could say 100% of all us die


Yes, that bit was supposed to be funny

You really really honestly think the prosecution of this woman will prevent anyone in her position doing the same thing ??...I doubt it

Stigmatising people with aids definitely helps no one - however making it illegal to pass it on to other people, with out reasonable consideration for their welfare almost certainly does


How do we legislate for foolishness though? Some on here seem determined to say this girl went out with the intent to spread disease.The fact that the gbh charges and assault charges were found not guilty says the German court agrees.She was only convicted of failure to inform her partners.

Dont agree Ben, to pass on HIV you have to have sexual encounters with some one, it is personal. flu is airborn.

Hello

Foolishness is fairly easy to legislate around - if you throw a brick at a window, expecting it to bounce back, but it smashes - then you've been foolish, but can still be done for criminal damage as a reasonable person would think it reckless to throw a brick at a window.
Sounds like the German laws are similar to ours in that you need intent for a charge of assault - so with my spitting example - you must be intending to spit in my face, not just spraying when talking !

Ty blue,thats what comes of reading things in the mmorning,,it only mentioned her failure to inform.

 

Well, that's settled then

All done and dusted......the courts decided she was guilty as charged.

Rightly so too.

 

Well, well, well.

I've been out most of the afternoon and have come back to read an absolutely fabulous thread in CA conducted in the very best traditions of SH with very valuable contributions from all sides of the divide (including a newbie who hasn't been slapped down but welcomed) and not a hint of venom!

I shall sleep a very happy man tonight!

and I've been educated along the way...

It really feels like the effort I made on my morning post was well and truly worth it!

Thanks all!
