Foundation Strategy Implodes

The entire foundation of Clark Baker’s HIV Innocence Group is that HIV Science is “junk science” and HIV Tests are worthless because “HIV tests do not detect HIV”.  This statement can be found at his site.  Baker even has a separate page called “Winning HIV Criminal Cases” where he goes further into detail about his so called strategy.  Regarding the “useless HIV Tests” Baker writes:

“When someone is charged with being HIV+, the first question is whether they are actually infected with HIV.  It’s not enough for someone to admit they’re HIV+ – no one – not even the so-called experts – have the training or expertise to competently diagnose an HIV infection.  To do so requires HIV tests that are designed to do nothing more than market HIV as a disease.
So if a defendant admits having acquired HIV, it only means that an unknown and unqualified third-party might have used a  test that cannot detect the HIV virus to diagnose a disease that was never proven to cause AIDS.”

This entire foundation crumbles with two cases:

1. Jose Alex Perez

“According to Lucas, investigators obtained a search warrant for a blood sample from Perez. A test for HIV, which causes the chronic, life-threatening condition AIDS, came back negative.  So the criminal exposure to HIV charge against Jose Alex Perez of Oak Ridge is being dismissed, Lucas stated in a news release Monday.”

2. Daniel Hay Lewis

“Sheriff Lamberti called me late [Tuesday] afternoon to advise that tomorrow his office will be requesting the Broward County State Attorney’s Office to drop the charge relating to criminal transmission of HIV.  He confirmed the Mr. Lewis’s HIV-test came back negative.”

HIV related charges were dropped in both cases because both men took HIV tests and they both came back negative!  If the major point of proof for Baker and his HIV Innocence Group is that HIV tests are useless and worthless, then the fact that HIV Charges were dropped as a direct result of a negative HIV test directly refutes the entire strategy foundation of Baker’s organization.

If Baker has lied about these two cases at his website, I have to wonder; Are there more lies to be uncovered?  The answer; Most certainly!  I will be exploring further in future posts.

The Purpose of This Site: HIV Innocence Group Truth

Quite simply the purpose of this site will be to deconstruct an “organization”, for lack of a better word, called The HIV Innocence Group.  The supposed function of this “group” is to help defend people who are HIV+ and have been accused of intentional or reckless infection of another person with HIV. On the surface this is a worthwhile cause. Unfortunately it is a vehicle to perpetuate HIV/AIDS Denial and pseudoscience by manipulating the judicial system. I will supply court documents, news articles and correspondence with attorneys directly involved in cases as proof that this “group” is not what it is presented to be. I will further prove that this “group” is also much less successful than the public is lead to believe.

This group was created by a man named Clark Baker as a sub unit of The Office of Medical and Scientific Justice or OMSJ.  OMSJ does not seem to have any function except as a website repository to re-publish articles written by others on a myriad of Conspiracy Theories from Autism to Climate Change and Scientism. Mostly Mr. Baker is an AIDS Denialist and is using this organization as a tool, NOT TO HELP PEOPLE, but to further his AIDS Denialist agenda via the court system.  That is why he is less than truthful about the supposed success of The HIV Innocence Group as I will show at this dedicated site.

Baker originally called his “organization” The HIV Innocence Project because he, being an AIDS Denialist and Conspiracy Theorist, desperately needed some legitimacy.  Baker therefore tried to ride the coattails of a real, legitimate and highly respected organization called The Innocence ProjectThe project is a national litigation and public policy organization dedicated to exonerating wrongfully convicted people through DNA testing and reforming the criminal justice system to prevent future injustice.

After The Innocence Project became aware of Bakers less than reputable HIV Innocence Project he was forced to change names.  Baker changed the name to the HIV Innocence Group.  One glaring, hypocritical difference between Bakers “group” and the legitimate Innocence Project is that Baker refuses TRANSPARENCY. Transparency is one of the hallmarks of the real and legitimate Innocence Project. If you go to their website, you will find the names of the attorneys, all of the staff and every single case they are working on and those they have helped as well as the specifics of each and every case.

Baker, on the other hand, operates solely on half-truths and innuendo.  Baker does not provide a list of attorneys, scientists or staff of any kind.  If you go to Baker’s Innocence Group site, (previously HIV Innocence Project) you will see a list of cases that Baker claims his “group” has helped.  However, even though Baker supplies links for each case, he neglects to link to ANY PROOF that his “group” has helped in any specific way.  As a matter of fact, many times the links provide extremely contradictory information that he has helped at all….especially when it comes to the foundation of what Baker calls “proof”.  (The Hallmark and Foundation of Baker’s Project/Group is that HIV Science is “junk science” and that “HIV Tests are useless and extremely flawed.”)

It is therefore the sole purpose of this site to provide the general public, any attorneys seeking Baker’s help and any interested parties, the proof that Clark Baker’s HIV Innocence Group is a useless tool of AIDS Denialist propaganda.
