DATE: Sept 5
Obviously I’ve been doing something right. I received an email this morning from the Toronto Police Service, which reads as follows:

I am the officer investigating the aggrevated sexual assault allegations against George Flowers.
I have stumbled upon your blog and have read what has been going on.
I appreciate you making more people aware of this investigation as we deem this situation as a major public safety risk.
My goal is to find and speak with anyone who has had sexual contact with Mr. Flowers. They need to know that there is an active investigation and given the option of whether they would proceed with police involvement. His non-disclosure actions are criminal whether or not a sexual encounter resulted in HIV infection. A lot of people are under the impression that if they DIDN’T contract HIV, that they have no criminal claim and that is false. The charge is for the “threat” of contracting the virus at the time of sexual contact if they were NOT advised of someone’s HIV status PRIOR to any sexual encounter.
If you have questions, don’t hesitate to call me.
Thanks in advance for your time.

I have removed two short paragraphs that were directed to me personally. Please take notice of the section I have put in bold. This section is important because it says that even if a person is not infected, that he didn’t say anything is still considered a threat under the law.
And, once again, here is the link to the original Public Safety Alert if you wish to contact Crimestoppers: http://www.torontopolice.on.ca/newsreleases/pdfs/24254.pdf
Help get this man off the streets before more people are put at risk.
