Well the hearing is over. Devin is going to trial. God, is our justice system that FUBAR? Lets let TRUE Murders and rapist run free, but put a young man, who has to live with what he did in a stupid accident, for the rest of his life, lets make him stand trial for murder 1, of his cousin, more like brother. Yea. Good show Burns.

historically, his chances aren't good if he gets bound over for trial.

whereas oklahoma is 27th in the nation in population we rank 1st in the nation in ratio of death sentances to murder charges.

1st in death sentances.

3rd per cap of death row population.

if you are an advocate of the death penalty...i guess you can be proud.

oh, and we are 3rd in the nation in cases of condemned prisoners later to be found innocent.

think there are any innocent folks been executed?

think there are any folks been executed that should have had lesser charges?

my prayers are with devin and the family.

No. There is no pre-trial confinement. He is under a strict curfew, and there are numerous rules. Other than that, he is out. He is still working as an EMT here in town, and is one of the best we have. The guy has gone though about as much pain and heartache as anyone I know, and the sad part is, he still has hell to look forward to. All thanks to the great D.A. we have. But I believe that he will be ok. He is a strong kid. And for anyone who would like to help out, a Devin Brewster fund has been set up at the Farmers Bank here in Carnegie. All donations will go to help pay for his legal defense. I know the family would greatly appreciate anything the community can give.

When sentenced defendants start winning appeals time after time and they sue the city or county then good or bad the DA will be replaced. Of course a multi-county petition drive would be helpful.

i am truly surprised this hasn't received more publicity knowing the da. he's going for a plea bargain, how much u wanna bet? and if devin is scared enough he will plead to a charge much higher than he would normally....hope he has a good lawyer.

and fred, yes...u would think so.....last i heard oklahoma's error rate on death row cases is 75 percent.

as a health care provider....i wouldn't like that kinda rate of error.

Well I hope he doesn't plea it out. Since in a murder 1 case, you must prove intent, and god knows there wasn't any. And no. Sadly to say, his lawyer is way below average. From what I understand, he isn't a criminal lawyer, but was hired to simply get Devin out of Jail right after the accident happened. Since then, he is still hired on as his lawyer. From what I gather, he is a tax, civil, lawyer. Having no experience in criminal law. I pray to god he doesn't screw Devin into spending the rest of his life in prison. I am not sure why he doesn't get the best criminal attorney in the state. No clue on that one. But anyways. Please keep the family in your thoughts and prayers. And thank for passing the word about the fund.

to get murder 1 they also have to prove that he is a continued danger to others, which wouldn't make sense beings he is out of jail.

of course i will keep them all in mind.

i just don't understand the whole thing, but then i haven't for a long time.

We're stuck with his brother Chase Burns here in North Carolna, bringing in video lottery machines. Any information on Chase? Do you have video lottery or poker machines in Anadarko?

yes he has machines here also, he put them in a bar, called The Eagles and his brother the DA brett raided it and fined them big time. His brother came got his machines. I thought they would hold the machines as evedence, and they would held for public auction, or a sheriffs sale, but hummmmmmmm in this case he took them case closed after the bar suffered from fines,

The Eagles is not a bar...It is a lodge,(with a bar) and for members only...the fact that loads of Grady County deputies, Chickasha Police officers, and Grady County Fire Department, are card carrying members of this lodge, makes you wonder...hmmm...also, the Sheriff of Grady County, Kiren McMullen,(I should say EX) knew all about the place as he and his wife were members....The Eagles Lodge has had those machines for years and most folks in Chickasha knew it... funny how when they went to raid to place, it was already known when it was going to happen well in advance of the actual raid....Now we all know why Grady County is known as "Shady Grady" or "Greedy Grady"...

I also think Burns raided the place to get McMullen out of office to be able to place his own man, Art Kell as Grady County Sheriff...Burns and McMullen had butted heads for a long time, and it looks like Burns won another round, again.... :-(

Yes he had machines in gold river before it ever became legal and yes he still has machines here. Brett Burns is one of the most childish grown men i have ever seen just the mere sight of him makes me wanna just grab him around the neck and choke the living hell outta him. I have never seen an official be so camera happy in all my days!

Folks just take a look at what he is trying to do to four officers in marlow oklahoma. One of which is a good friend of mine. An when he brought information forward about the corrupt actions of not only bret but the previous da gene christian they have been trying to get him every since. They have done everything but try to have him killed. One thing I can tell you for sure my friend will never give up on making sure bret gene and his corrupt system get what they deserve. Folks you have know idea what these guys have been doing for years. An when you stand up to them this is the treatment you get from them and the media.
