Supreme Court Justice in PA Caught Joking about Raping Women and Molesting Kids

Justice-J.-Michael-Eakin

Philadelphia, PA – Hundreds of emails obtained by the Daily Beast reveal the twisted mind of a Pennsylvania Supreme Court justice and his circle of colleagues who take delight in misogyny and racism.

Justice J. Michael Eakin communicated with state and federal officials using a private “John Smith” email account. Emails include suggesting that a battered wife treat her wounds by “keeping her mouth shut,” a joke about a man using a Taser to rape a woman, jokes about kids being molested by pedophiles, and numerous racial slurs.

“An email Eakin received from defense attorney Terry McGowan links to a video titled “Craziest White Man,” which shows a man picking up Latino day-laborers, who he then takes to immigration services. Afterward, the man in the video comments on the need to “cull the herd, make sure they don’t overpopulate.”

Much of the correspondence was received by prosecutors in the U.S. Attorney’s office in Harrisburg as well as by various county Common Pleas Court judges and district attorneys. It included a set of “motivational posters,” which feature a woman mock-fellating a beer bottle above the slogan, “True Love: Sometimes you know it the instant you see it across the bar” and one of a topless woman which reads: “Dear Abby: I’m an 18 year old girl from Arkansas and I’m still a virgin. Do you think my brothers are gay?”

McGowan, Eakin, and Baxter also shared jokes at the expense of Muslims, black students, and women. Several pictures depict women as animals: one with deer antlers, one naked and on all-fours, costumed like a pig (“How do you know your house is infected with swine-flu?”).

One joke sent by McGowan describes a teenage Middle Eastern suicide bomber, and a mother who laments “They blow up so fast, don’t they?”

The disturbing emails were first obtained by Attorney General Kathleen Kane, as she was investigating why it took so long to indict Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky for pedophilia.

Kane has vowed to expose what she says is a deviant and misogynist “network” of judges, federal prosecutors, attorneys general, law enforcement, district attorneys, and public defenders who share smut on the taxpayer’s dime,” according to the Daily Beast article.

Five state officials and a Supreme Court Justice lost their jobs last year when Kane released a heavily redacted version of the emails. She is fighting against the “old boy’s network” that violates the public trust and is attempting to persecute her. Kane had previously leaked information about a grand jury investigation, a move she says did not violate any rules.

The state Supreme Court suspended Kane’s law license last month, and “godfather” Congressman Bob Brady censured her in December. Kane maintains her innocence.

Kane says the campaign against her began when she gained access to pornographic emails and images from Frank Fina—a former prosecutor in the district attorney’s office—as part of a review into Fina’s probe of Sandusky. The criminal case against her is the result of “persecution by a group of angry men,” according to Kane’s attorney.

Justice Eakin does not see it that way, instead saying he was disturbed by the idea that someone would be examining his private correspondence. Apparently he has friends in the Judicial Conduct Board. A 2014 review found Eakin’s emails to be “suggestive but not worthy of disciplinary action.”

Just as shocking as the emails is the fact that these deviant minds—suffused in misogyny, racism, and disregard for human dignity—are supposed to enforce laws and carry out judgment on the rest of us. And the system meant to weed out these “bad apples” instead condones such behavior.

  • Really, this a fucking problem for you? Just because of the mans position? Get a fucking grip. Jokes are funny. If you are white/black/green/blue/red/etc. doesn’t matter. People are different and stereotypes are often funny subjects that lead to jokes. Doesn’t mean he actually THINKS THESE THINGS ARE OKAY. Fucking PC killjoy pieces of shit.

    • you’re out of your fucking mind . now go do the kitty litter fuck face

    • Before I do that, tell me why I’m out of my mind, please.

    • Thank goodness your sick mind and body are in a other country.

    • So you think joking about rape and abuse is just fine? Says a lot about you.

    • Yes. I think they are just fine. I have a very personal relationship with a rapevictim. So let me be upfront, I find rape to be one of the most aweful crimes one could ever commit. I would kill the man (or woman) that would rape one of my loved ones. Let that sink in, actually kill them.

      But even so, jokes are JUST JOKES. Regardless of the subject, doens’t matter how heinous, they are still jokes. I will make them myself and I will laugh about them. Because I can tell the difference between a joke and a fucking opinion.

      The fact that you can’t says a lot about you. Mostly that you are smallminded idiots.

      You know what actually killed Hitler? The gasbill.

    • Thanks for not responding. Fucktards.

    • People can joke all they want. The issue here is that he’s a judge and people don’t like the idea of judges, who are supposed to attempt impartiality in their judgments on us, joking about using Tasers to rape women

    • I know. This is my problem with the smallminded. We do it ourselves, we pay comedians to do it to us but wait…somebody with power laughs/makes on the edge jokes? Outrage.

    • I know. The smallminded can’t distinguish between a person who is paid to make jokes and be vulgar, and a person who is empowered to pass judgment with impartiality and dignity

    • My god you’re stupid. Do you think judges are BETTER people than comedians?

  • I joke about stuff like that, too – a twisted sense of humor is no indication of evil intent.

    • Yeah, because beating women, rape and child molestation are hilarious! Right?

    • Yeah – sometimes joking about them is. Deal. People joke about death, too – there aren’t many jokes that don’t have something happening that would be bad if it really happened.

    • Kidding about a child’s pain that he/she has for the rest of her life from being raped is not the same as when someone dies. But I guess that doesn’t matter to you does it? In fact, I bet you think it’s pretty funny.

    • Few people kid about a child’s pain – the huge majority of such jokes are about imaginary situations, or are at the expense of the perpetrators. Don’t tell me you didn’t see any of the jokes going around about Jared Fogle after he got arrested. Humor is one of the ways that people use to deal with tragedy.

    • Alright, real quick: tell a rape joke

    • Statistically 9 out of 10 people enjoy gang rape ?

    • Don’t lose your day job

    • Paul Eric McCarter – you asked for one, one got served up. Don’t pout, okay?

  • Actually, the more I think about this, the more I enjoy the irony of a page calling themselves the Free Thought Project having conniptions about someone else’s thoughts.

    • So, they’re not supposed to have lives other than sitting on the bench? There’s no reason to believe that what he does off of the bench has any effect on how he does his job. Now, if he’s notoriously easy on rapists or child molesters, then there’s something to get excited about – but his sense of humor still has nothing to do with it.

    • Dan, give it up, you’re making excuses for being a misogynistic asshole.

    • At least I don’t have to make up excuses for being unable to carry on a conversation online without resorting 6th-grade namecalling. 😉
