It was only a matter of time…

…before this kind of bullshit started. How much you want to bet if the allegations are proven true, the same defense used by pharmacists who want to refuse to fill birth control prescriptions are invoked by this guy?

A small-town police chief was accused in a federal lawsuit Thursday of stopping a would-be rescuer from performing CPR on a gay heart attack victim because he assumed the ailing man had HIV and posed a health risk…

Police Chief Bobby Bowman called the allegations "a boldface lie." He said that he called an ambulance and that Green was taken to the hospital in "no more than nine minutes."

"No one refused him CPR as his sister and mom are saying. They can do what they want, but if they're saying I refused him CPR, that is no way true," Bowman said…

When asked if he knew if Green was gay, Bowman would not answer and referred questions to McDowell County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Danny Barie, who also represents the City of Welch.
Of course he did. The ACLU is suing on behalf of the victim’s mother.

Hat tip to Catherine at Poverty Barn. ARGH.
