A Saukville man has been charged with threatening an Ozaukee County judge on Facebook, claiming he wants, “...to really put a test to ‘white privilege’ and ‘male’ superiority.”

According to the criminal complaint, John Borowski threatened Judge Joseph Voiland after he presided over a family court matter in September. 

Authorities say Borowski posted the following on Facebook:

“I’m a white man being deprived of my child for unjust causes. I have absolutely no criminal record. I barely drink and am constantly subjected to drug and alcohol tests required by the FRA. Children now 22 and almost 20 who can attest to my parenting. Who’s with me to riot and loot the court house. Possibly the judges neighborhood? I want to really put a test to “white privilege” and “male” superiority. I don’t think taking a knee or destroying my own neighborhood will do any good.”

Also on Facebook, Borowski posted a photograph with him in hunting gear with a gun. 

Voiland said the threat was part of being a judge, but he was concerned for the safety of his family. 

Borowski faces one count of threatening a judge and another count of criminal damage to property of a judge. He faces a maximum sentence of nine and a half years.
