Young, Handsome, HIV Positive: College Student Infected Dozens and Filmed Them

Telling even a single person about your HIV status may seem unbearable, but not telling them and having $ex with them is not an option; not if you want to keep your freedom.

In spite of this truth, people infected by HIV are steadily infecting others.  Michael Johnson, 22, is allegedly the newest case of an infected person withholding their status and allowing themselves to have $ex with and infect others.  As a student at Lindenwood University and wrestler who is HIV-positive, Johnson, allegedly slept with a number of men without informing them of his status.  He reportedly captured most of the $exual encounters in question on video tape.

According to investigators, Johnson could potentially have infected over 30 people since  October of last year.

Videos on Johnson’s laptop reveal 32 $exual partners on 32 separate videos, according to authorities.  Most of the time protection is nowhere to be found.  According to The Daily News, the St. Charles Police Department has reason to believe that none of Johnson’s partners knew of his HIV-positive status.  Moreover, none of them had any idea that they were being filmed.

According to MadamNoire, St. Charles County prosecutor Tim Lohmar explained more to media outlet KMOV about the statement he released asking partners of Johnson to step forward.  “It’s a matter not only of their individual safety but public safety as well,” he said.

It has reportedly been five years since the St. Charles Police Department began building their case against Johnson.   A young man brought their attention to Johnson after he came forward and told authorities he had contracted HIV as well as gonorrhea following he and Johnson’s $exual encounter.

According to MadamNoire, Michael Johnson operates under the alias, Tiger Mandingo, on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Kansas City rapper Vigalantee (aka Roger Suggs) says that young athletes have to realize the importance of sexual responsibility.  ”Brothers can’t let culture make them think it’s OK to live like this,” said Vigalantee, who is also a commentator on The BOSS Sports Network.  ”Athletes can’t just think that it’s OK to sleep with anything that moves.  That gets a lot of young guys into trouble.”

    There a test to to tell wether you are HIV positive. Don’t be so naive and quick to make assertions based on “I don’t want to trust the establishment”. Your and other lives are worth more than ” one night of a sexual encounter. Be smart, be wise, be safe. Remember you &others have people who love & cherish yourselves.

    The sexual revolution of the 60′s (sexual freedom) was NOTHING compared to this. The depiction of this kind of sex as “normal” is dangerous to the entire society. The disease and potential breakdown of tissue is to be expected when you use an orifice for something it was not intended. People of color, in particular, need to start using “basic common sense” and STOP buying the hipe.

    If the Police were working on the case for 5 years, there must be more than the recent 31 victims who were infected in the last four months. I can’t understand why they didn’t stop him the previous five years.
