Judge says victim's body can prevent rape

SANTA ANA, Calif. A Southern California judge is being publicly admonished for saying a rape victim didn't put up a fight during her assault and that if someone doesn't want sexual intercourse, the body "will not permit that to happen."

The California Commission on Judicial Performance issued a report Thursday saying Superior Court Judge Derek Johnson's comments were inappropriate and a breach of judicial ethics.

Johnson is a former prosecutor in the Orange County district attorney's sex crimes unit. He issued an apology saying he was frustrated with a prosecutor during an argument in 2008 over the sentencing in the case before him compared to other more aggravated cases.

The case involved a man who threatened to mutilate the face and genitals of his ex-girlfriend with a heated screwdriver before committing rape, forced oral copulation, and other crimes.

1. Now there's a first-class douchebag - right wingers always make themselves known

by their stupidity and cruel, jackass comments.

3. it isn't a "misunderstanding". it is a deliberate lie, told to blame the victim, and let the rapist

off the hook, because, after all, women are evil, and force men to do these things.

4. I say ...

Let's put the judge's theory that to the test and I'm certain this judge will be eager to volunteer to prove his theory:

Judge's Theory:

Putting up a fight during an assault will trigger the mechanism that indicates that if someone doesn't want sexual intercourse, the body "will not permit that to happen."


Experiment:

Put this judge in GenPop of just about any prison in the nation with "Judge" stenciled to the front and back of his prison-garb for one week with the same level of protection provided to the typical trans-gendered detainee.


Experiment Findings:

5. because it was a woman victim, this wasn't aggravated enough?

The case involved a man who threatened to mutilate the face and genitals of his ex-girlfriend with a heated screwdriver before committing rape, forced oral copulation, and other crimes.

how soon, or even can, this woman-hating bastard be recalled, or thrown off the bench?

6. Madness

How insane are we going to be? No one has a right to lay a hand on another person without permission. And that does not include 'permission' obtain by threat, by mutilation or by taping the mouth, tying up the person or by any other perversion that is becoming common place.
