Man With HIV Who Thought Chugging Piss Would Cure Him Gets Life Sentence For Intentionally Infecting Other People


A 27-year-old British man who intentionally infected others with HIV after meeting them on Grindr was sentenced to life in prison on Wednesday.

Daryll Rowe had been found guilty in November of five counts of causing grievous bodily harm with intent and five counts of attempted grievous bodily harm. He infected at least four victims in the Sussex area between October of 2015 and January of 2016, according to cops.

He had been diagnosed in April of 2015 in Edinburgh, where he was from, but he refused medication. Rowe told the jury that he believed drinking his own urine every day would cure him.

Getting told that you have HIV would obviously be tough to deal with. So tough that you drink your own pee as a medical cure? I dunno. I dont think so but that’s not for me to judge. I dont wanna disparage piss altogether. You get stung by a jellyfish, let loose on your legs. Ant bites? You betcha. A belly ache? Arch your back and leak on your stomach. Tried and true. HIV, though? Buddy, you need some pills and an IV at the very least, and please, for the love of god, stop trying to sew your seed when you are infected.

I feel like he wasn’t wrong for trying to cure his HIV with piss. When it comes to medicinal urine, each person is entitled to their own medicinal proclivities. May a thousand blossoms bloom as far as I’m concerned, but I aint spending any time on it because in the meantime, every three months, a person is torn to pieces by a crocodile in North Queenland.
