      Very creepy. Can't help but fear that an abusive homosexual cop is "locked and loaded"!

    People just do worse and worse things – - with NO conscience! Our moral compass is GONE!

      Because good people elect to do nothing. Morality is pretty rare to find these days.

    I agree with the no creepy, he didnt rape the man or lie, two consenting adults had sex, the officer should have been up front about his status, but the other guy should have asked first and then proceeded with caution.
    No protection from anyone is always a stupid thing, hetero or homo……..just Russian Roulette

    should have asked before the act

      I agree how you already engaged in a sex act, than later want to inquire about his HIV status. Seems a little backwards.

    This sounds like b.s. to me. This man is obviously trying to ruin the cops rep. or looking for money. I mean how can it be called transmitting hiv when the so called victim did not get the disease? He is known to be a very fair and hard working police officer. Remember people you are innocent to proven guilty. Sweep your own front porch before you start casting stones against others, smh!!!!!!

      Cicero is one big porch, there is no broom big enough. Would you want to be arrested by this guy? Larry does!

        Liss, how does your teachers telling you everything make it true? You sound absolutey ignorant!

      how easy for you to all run your mouths when you dont even know what the full story is. he was being investigated the full year, up to concluding the investigation what was going to happen.

    Exactly Pat!!! I agree with you, i know the officer, and he wouldnt do such thing, im sure the "victim" is upset about something and figured he would ruin his career in such way!

      Pat Kokoszka said:

      What does being arrested by him have to do with anything, I personally would not want to be arrested by any officer gay or straight!!! If you were going at the gay angle I am a female so I’m sure it would not matter!!! Why do homophobes fear that just because a person is guy means that they are rapists and want every man there is, sheesh!!!

        Keith said:
        March 15, 2013 at 12:40 PM

        The gay angle, i am a female, homophobes, rapists, these are strong punch words. Bottom line, this guy took a oath to serve and protect. He sereved but did not use protection. CPD has a history of doing what ever they want, they can ruin anybodys life, they act as if they are above the law. Sex is sex, you should be honest up front, not hide the facts. Must be the Cicero in him!

    @ NONYA NOT SURE WHO YOUR TALKING ABOUT BEING A LOW LIFE PIECE OF SHIT- I DON'T KNOW YOU FROM APPLES OR ORANGES- I CAN CARE LESS THE MAN IS GAY OR IF YOU ARE – BUT TELL ME THIS YOU HAD SEX WITH A PERSON AND THAT PERSON DIDN'T TELL YOU THEY HAD HIV- YOUR GONNA BE OKAY WITH IT- I DON'T THINK SO!!! HIV IS A DEATH SENTENCE!!

    First of all, hiv is NOT a death sentence and hasn't been for years. Please bring yourselves up to speed regarding medical advances. People with hiv often end up healthier than hiv-neg people because they take good care of themselves and take one pill a day, minimal–if any— side effects.

    Secondly, what does it matter if the guy was a security guard at a school? How on earth would his being poz have any bearing on his security guard job?

    Third, it's absolutely absurd for a guy to have unprotected sex with someone and then fault him if he's poz. Consenting adults. If the 24 year old was worried about possible seroconversion, a) he should have had that discussion beforehand, and b) he could have gone on PEP or PrEP and kept himself from seroconverting.

    Fourth, if only oral sex happened, there's no possibility of seroconversion. Which means the 24 year old let the guy come inside him on the first 'date'. No one in this day and age doesn't know the risks of doing that.

    Everyone involved should calm the hell down, send the 24 year old to a shrink (he's obviously off-kilter) and forget the whole thing.

    Seriously.
