West Virginia is also for haters

Robert Bowman, a West Virginia police chief, stops at the roadside scene where Billy Snead is performing CPR on his gay friend Claude Green. The Chief tells Billy to stop, or else he’ll catch AIDS. (Green did not have HIV.) Billy continues, and according to the New York Times (reg req’d) the Chief “grabbed Mr. Snead’s shoulder, pulling him away from his friend”. Green died in the hospital less than an hour later, and if the report is accurate, it seems to me that’s exactly the way the chief wanted things. Unbelievable. Kudos to the ACLU for taking on this case.
