HIV carriers face microchip implants in Indonesia's Papua province
John Manangsang, a Papua MP, said that by implanting computer chips beneath the skin of "sexually aggressive" patients authorities would be in a better position to identify, track and punish anyone who deliberately infected others. Those convicted could face up to six months in jail or a 3,340 fine.

Under the bill, a committee would decide who should be fitted with chips and monitor patients' behaviour, but it is unclear who would be on the committtee and how it would carry out its work.

1. Was Bill Buckley reincarnated as a Papuan MP?
The insufferable one proposed, in the pre-microchip era, tattooing those infected with HIV. :grr:

Then, just this year, his son Christo announced he was supporting Obama! :rofl:

3. That was one of the things I wondered about
Did Buckley hate gay people so much he would risk exposing tattoo artists, or health care workers? (Probably.) :shrug:

5. I doubt that Buckley considered tattooing IV drug users, etc.
This was in the early days of the epidemic. Such as Buckley probably did believe that.

Oh yes, the detail I left out was that the tattoo was to have been placed on the, um, lower back. Draw your own conclusions.
