Judge Says Rape Don’t Count If You Don’t Fight Back [The Apocalypse]

Everyday until December 21, 2012 we will count down to the end with a sign of the apocalypse. It’s like that movie The Number 23 (except actually good), once you see the signs – they’re everywhere! [These are just jokes, folks!] 

This needn’t any commentary. Here are the judges words straight up. Mind you this is after the criminal was charged and convicted of the following: rape, forcible oral copulation, domestic battery, stalking and making threats against his former live-in girlfriend.

Here are Superior Court “Judge” Derek G. Johnson’s words:

“I’m not a gynecologist, but I can tell you something, if someone doesn’t want to have sexual intercourse, the body shuts down. The body will not permit that to happen unless a lot of damage in inflicted and we heard nothing about that in this case. That tells me that the victim in this case, although she wasn’t necessarily willing, she didn’t put up a fight. The judge, who has been on the Orange County Superior Court since 2000, also declared the rape “technical,” and not “a real, live criminal case.”

How are we still having debates about what actual rape is? HOW?! Apocalypse Now!


This f***ing judge was not fired, he was not reprimanded but only forced to apologize to his superiors who are trying to haul ass and save face.

“In the commission’s view, the judge’s remarks reflected outdated, biased and insensitive views about sexual assault victims who do not ‘put up a fight,’ ” the agency said in a news release Thursday. “Such comments cannot help but diminish public confidence and trust in the impartiality of the judiciary. In his response to the commission and at his appearance, Judge Johnson conceded his comments were inappropriate and apologized.”

Oh, he’s sowwy? Oh, if the judge is sowwy then I guess that completely negates the fact that he sentenced a rapist to six years as opposed to the requested sixteen and completely undermined the experiences of the victim, along with blaming and shaming her for having been raped in the first place. Oh, but he’s sowwy – I am so sure his outdated and biased beliefs haven’t affected dozens of previous court decisions he has made and ones that he will make in the future. Oh, right I guess the apocalypse isn’t on December 21 because we are living it now.
