IN THIS SOCIAL-media era, in which a local cop's decision to shoot a citizen can go viral in hours, House Bill 1538 might seem anachronistic, as something that roaring public debates are made of. But the bill is popular in Harrisburg, and protesters - at least in the streets - have been all but nonexistent. The legislation, which has won the backing of police unions across the state, would shield the names of on-duty officers involved in shootings or the use of force while the incidents are being investigated.

From a "joke" about a battered woman to newly revealed verbal leering at public employees, Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justice J. Michael Eakin's emails to fellow judges and attorneys are repugnant enough. His increasingly brazen attempts to rig the investigation of these transgressions only compound them. Having proven himself unfit to judge the state's citizens, much less supervise other judges as a member of the nation's oldest appellate court, Eakin should resign. That Eakin received many offensive emails and sent a few has been known for months.

HARRISBURG - On the eve of a key decision by a Senate panel on whether Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane should remain in office, a House Republican legislator is proposing a separate investigation into whether she should be impeached. State Rep. Garth Everett (R., Lycoming) circulated a memo Tuesday to colleagues, saying he would introduce a resolution calling on the House Judiciary Committee to investigate whether Kane's "actions in office merit impeachment. " In an interview Tuesday, Everett, a member of the committee, said he believed that Kane, a Democrat who is facing criminal charges and has had her law license suspended, should be removed.
