I wish I could say “I’m shocked!!” after reading this news article but unfortunately there were too many idiot men during our last election who said crap like this to make me shocked that someone else has said it again. Are there really people out there who are this moronic?
Superior Court Judge Derek Johnson said if someone doesn’t want sexual intercourse, the body “will not permit that to happen.”
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.
Now, seriously, what the hell? The body “will not permit that to happen”? WTF Judge? Does this guy think the vagina will just seal up and is become impenetrable? This is unbelievable. I could seriously go off on a mega-rant here but I’m trying really hard to contain my frustration and stay calm. Honestly though, some people are just idiots.
