    While I normally have no empathy for cons in prison, I do believe they deserve to be properly separated from other prisoners if they have any contagious disease or infection to include HIV. This is so to protect the infected cons from retaliation and death at the hands of other prisoners because they fear becoming infected, and for the non-infected prisoners especially 1st time offenders who could be sexually assaulted by the infected prisoners. Maybe the ACLU needs to stand-up for the rights of all citizens...

    SC had the right idea in the first place and is only stopping this practice because the ACLU had had a court decide to stop doing this in Miss, the only other state that separated HIV from others. What is going to happen is that there will be a huge increase of first time young offenders who will contract HIV after being raped. A very good friend of mine had her son go to jail for poss of pot and stolen goods when he was 17 and they sent him to prison in SC. Six months later when he was released this kid was HIV positive. He lived a very long time after that, 20 years but he never fit back into decent socioty no matter how much he tried as he would revert back to knowing he had a death sentence in him. HIV and non-HIV Should be separated.

    The most people likely to be raped in jail/prison are first time offenders, who at some point will be released and pose a disease risk to society.

    I wonder if the non infected prisoners will go on a hunger strike to protest.
