It’s a shame that secession effort stalled so quickly. As Twitchy reported, California Gov. Jerry Brown just signed into law a bill making California a sanctuary state, and now he’s signed legislation that makes it no longer a felony to knowingly pass along HIV.

The Los Angeles Times reports:
Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill Friday that lowers from a felony to a misdemeanor the crime of knowingly exposing a sexual partner to HIV without disclosing the infection.
The measure also applies to those who give blood without telling the blood bank that they are HIV-positive.
Modern medicine allows those with HIV to live longer lives and nearly eliminates the possibility of transmission, according to state Sen. Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) and Assemblyman Todd Gloria (D-San Diego), authors of the bill.

Having HIV is not a crime … but knowingly passing it to a sexual partner? By coincidence, the news from California emerged the same day as a story in the New York Post about a HIV-positive hairdresser allegedly cut tips off condoms to infect men he met through a hook-up app.
He texted one of his alleged victims: “Maybe you have the fever cos I came inside you and I have HIV, lol. Whoops!” https://t.co/WXmbEcMl15

And hey, the law also applies to giving HIV-infected blood!
It's easier to get HIV in California than it is to get a gun. pic.twitter.com/92SDLxFR34

You’ve got a screw loose if you think decriminalizing the knowing transmission of a disease is some sort of win for anybody https://t.co/YEcv3Baigt

Dems think having something and purposefully killing someone with it are the same thing.
No wonder they hate guns.https://t.co/iK88mCuUVC

So, will #HIVIsNotACrime be one of the major platforms at the next Democratic National Convention? Let’s hope so.

It's never been a crime to have HIV/AIDS, but should be criminal to knowingly withhold this information from a sexual partner. https://t.co/xxppD3ZCpb

HIV is not a crime. Knowingly infecting someone with HIV should be. You should be ashamed of yourself for supporting this. https://t.co/Fhlt8iHpdD

HIV was never a crime. Knowingly transmitting it was. Now you've made that easier to get away with doing. Congrats, you horrid moron. https://t.co/UylqiSWPTJ
