In a few states this has been prosecuted as assault with a deadly weapon and/or even attempted murder... However, so far, only a few states have bought in to this line of prosecution...
So what do you think? Is this a crime, should it be? Or is the responsibility only partly theirs, as has been ruled in other states?

There was a pop star in another country prosecuted for it and a baseball player was just accused of it...
If you knowingly do not tell someone your status and you know it, it should be a crime. For those saying its a choice of the other person to not protect themselves,,,but if your friend hands you a drink, you don't test it to see if they poisoned it. If you trust the person and ask them their status and they do not disclose...that's intentionally putting your life on the line.

Yes I do. These are just 2 cases. If you knowingly attempt to transmit a deadly disease, you should be charged.
