  1. Eakin, Fina, Costanzo …. everyone involved with this scandal needs to resign. NOW. This is a black eye to the PA criminal justice system. All the shills in the World calling it “sophomoric,” “typical office porn,” or “just some funny jokes” cannot change what they really are.

    These are racist creep pigs. They have no place in law enforcement or in the Judisiary.
