A judge in Pennsylvania who dismissed charges against a fellow Muslim who was accused of attacking an atheist parading as a zombie Muhammad has been rebuked by state judicial officials.And there still should be. What he did was abominable and one can only wonder what he'd do in a case where a woman or a child was raped. He certainly shouldn't be welcomed at the local resturant if that's how he's going to behave. A rebuke isn't enough; the man does not deserve to be in a job like what he's got if he's going to rule in favor of people who act violent in the name of their beliefs.
The state Judicial Conduct Board action concerned Magisterial Judge Mark Martin, of Cumberland County, who was involved in the case that developed last winter when American Atheists’ Pennsylvania State Director Ernest Perce V was marching in a parade, and allegedly was attacked. [...]
A complaint was filed with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s Judicial Conduct Board by John P. McTernan, a pro-life activist and founder of Defend and Proclaim the Faith Ministry.
He told WND he got a response from Joseph A. Massa Jr., the chief counsel for the state board.
The letter said, “The board recently concluded its investigation regarding the complaint you filed against Magisterial District Judge Mark Martin, Cumberland County. The board voted to issue a letter of caution to Judge Martin as a private rebuke of his behavior and, thereafter, to close the case.

There had been numerous calls for the judge’s removal when the situation developed.
