<quoted text> see below please. your comments are in quotations followed by my response.
.
"There has been lots of post showing the issues with the DA. You just choose to skip over those post" - No, I've read them, you just keep repeating yourself &still provide not much reason why I should believe what you say.

"An its real easy if you are tired of people assuming you are one of those people then just post your name, problem solved. Except I don't really think you are going to do that" - You're right, I'm not going to post my name. What's your name?

"An yes there are people that have posted they have seen these things he has done first hand. First hand would me to me that they seen it happen which would lead me to believe that is fact" - I will sort of give you credit for this one, because I have seen firsthand how he & people w/in the office have worked cases & haven't provided links to documents on these cases & I can't prove a lot of it. I don't expect you to take my word for it, I'm not going to give you documents, all you would have to do is check the records of cases tried by the ADA's around 00 & 02. But you're nuts if you think I am going to take your "firsthand" knowledge any more seriously than you are mine. But at the same time, I understand your experiences are different from mine. U have seen wrongdoing, I haven't. I get it, I really do.

"On the other hand you show no proof to dispute the accounts. You can't even give one fact that disputes any of the claims that have been made" - I will say this one more time: you show no proof of your accusations. Why should I go on a Mother Goose chase to find what YOU & OTHERS claim to be true? If you have proof, then where is it? I have said time & again that I CAN'T DISPROVE what you say, but you seem to not be able to PROVE what you say. Again: I HAVE NO, NONE, ZILCH, NADA FACTS TO DENY YOUR ALLEGATIONS THAT IS WHY I HAVE ASKED YOU FOR IT. But just like my situation, I understand there may not be "proof" for all of it, but for as much as is being said here, there has to be something to back some of it up, at least

"Instead of crying about people bashing you give us some facts that support your claim that he is such a great DA" - I haven't shed one tear about the radicals in this forum bashing me. Also, it's not hard to find cases where justice was served for both criminals & victims alike. I know that isn't good enough for you, but it will have to do for now. Plus, stop worrying about what I have and prove me wrong. You haven't completely convinced me yet.

"An I'm still waiting for someone to show me some facts that dispute any of the claims that have been posted on here" - & I'm still waiting for someone to show me the facts that say these claims are true.

"Here I will make it easy for everyone. I'm going to make a short list of things he has been accused of doing since he has been in office. All someone one has to do is prove they are not true" - How is this easy? Why do you refuse to prove that it is true? My guess is because you CAN'T.

"1. He has commited adultry several times since he has been in office." - Said the pot to kettle:'you must be sleeping with Burns to know this about him'. Also, what he does or doesn't do in his spare time should be of no concern, but hear me: I DON'T CONDONE ADULTERY but I also don't condone butting into others business in this fashion, especially since I am just spreading rumors. Now unless you were there, I assume you are repeating what you heard.

"2. Dismissed cases on people because of his political ties to people running for office in his district ie. Sheriff Races" - You should dig deeper. Perhaps they received probation, community svc, fines. That happens. Were NO repurcussions given? I understand there are many travesties of justice, I am not saying you are lying at all, but will you give some criminal names in these cases so that I can look them up? Pretty please?

CONTINUED:

"3. Has hid the fact that his brother was involved with illegal gambling machines all over the distirct when he went after the Elks lodge for the same thing" - Now there is a lot of buzz about this one... Do you know if he was the one who initiated this investigation? Who tipped off authorities? Are we sure it was burns? Once something gets handed to him with EVIDENCE of a crime, isn't he supposed to do something about it? Has anyone tipped authorities about his brother? I remember his bro used to work for a company that supplied games to gas stations and such. I know someone who worked with him, I never saw the games to spit out money. And he hasn't hid anything about his bro, it's been thrown out there that his bro done what the Elks did. Evidently it hasn't been proven. But who knows. I do understand why a lot of people are ticked about this one, I admit it does look bad, but looks can be deceiving.

"4. That he was stopped by OHP for drunk driving but was not arrested because of who he was" - How do you know this? When did this supposedly happen? And if it did, then it wouldn't be the first time someone was let go. I have not received many tickets because I knew the cops that pulled me over. They advised to slow down and gave a warning. I even got stopped with beer once before I was 21. The cop made me pour it out and told me to go home (I didn't know that one really well, he just might have thought I was cute). Also, how drunk was he? Did he maybe have one or two and the OHP smelled it? HEAR ME: I DON'T CONDONE DRUNK DRIVING. But don't make a mountain out of a mole hill if it isn't necessary. YOu're smart enough to know what I mean by that. Please provide a time frame, you don't have to reveal your source, but tell us when and where. Pretty please.

"5. Has leaked information to the media about high profile cases for his own gain." - What information has he leaked to the media? & before you fly back with something like "what hasn't he leaked to the media?", can you tell me of one instance of this and how you know it was him that done so?(this is actually a request for anyone who has claimed that he leaks info to the media - can anyone give us an example of which case and what information was leaked to the media, and how do you know it was Burns? And please don't come back with because of the reporter he was supposedly sleeping with.... That's ignorant, unless of course you provide swaying testimony to that)

"6. Has played in illegal poker games even though he came after the Elks an the Grady County sheriff for gambling" - Hahahaha! Again, can you give a little more info here? Where are these illegal games being held?

"The last time I checked there wasn't but two of you that have showed support for this DA" - and what in Heaven's name does this have to do with anything that you claim to be true?

Seriously folks, I mean no harm. I am totally neutral. I know it doesn't seem that way, but I really hope that the best candidate wins for Dist 6. Honest I do. Drop the bullhonkey, the rumors, and go with what you know and can prove. Don't be so radical and ignorant to claim that EVERYTHING Bret does is corrupt. That's just ridiculous. Don't claim that he has done nothing but let people go that should be in jail and vice versa. That's also ridiculous. Don't claim that he done this or that because of what you think his motives and intentions were. That's even more ridiculous.

I wouldnt say I was trying to defend him by no means but I do think it is safe to say that most of you who bash him probably dont even know him. Your cousins best friend went to prison after he prosecuted him or something. Maybe someone told you some rumor about him, who knows. But do you stop to think about what the alternative may be? A spoiled, lazy rich kid named Jason Hicks who prosecuted 4 cases his entire life and lived off daddys businesses? Really? is that what you want in the DA's Office if your mother is a victim of a case? You can say what you want about Burns but you cant say that hes weak on criminals.
I agree with the part of this, but you are going the other extreme with saying Hicks is a spoiled, lazy rich kid... I am sure he put out a lot of effort to get where he is. He is an educated man on his own merits.

Listen I didn't post on here in hopes to get you "Justa" to change your mind about where you stand on the DA. I post on here so people of District Six know about the person they are voting for. You can argue about this all day long it won't change the facts. Do you really think that all these people just made this stuff up. A movie director could'nt have made this stuff up. I understand there is always one person out there that just can't get it unless they are standing there watching it happen. An maybe you are one of those people, but as a christian I'm glad that you have'nt had to go through some of the things this DA has done to wrong people. An I hope that he loses this race not because of my dislike for him but so that he can't use this office to do these things to people anymore. Look around this country at all the corrupt politicians that we have had over just the past few years. Then tell me why it is so hard to think that it may be going on in little ole south western Oklahoma. The whole reason that this type of corruption goes on is because people like yourself can't trust in the majority anymore. It always has to be well show me the picture or show me the video. Knowone has to post the documents on here or the pictures. For me the people are speaking loud enough. An I'm not concered if you trust my word or not. I will tell you this though, I have seen these things first hand because at one time my life wasn't the life of a Christian. I seen a lot of what this DA has done first hand with my own eyes. An its not just him it was lots of people in an around his office. Evil breeds Evil. Not that I was involved, but I didn't stand up an tell anyone either. Which made me no better that him. So I fill like to right the wrong people need to know these things. An there not things that are hard to find out about. All you have to do is talk to people that work around those offices. Like the court house the police and sheriffs departments. The state offices like OSBI or OBN. I promise you I have for years and if you took a vote just from those offices in that district you probaly wouldn't find a hand full that would support him. An even that hand full doesn't really suppport him but they themselves have to much to hide.

Im still betting it wouldnt matter who it was. Alot of people cant be pleased with the DA's Office. If Hicks wins many of you will be bitching about him in 4 years about how dirty and corrput he is just because he didnt do what YOU thought was right. And I also think most of you are not in support of Hicks as much as you just have a grudge with Burns because on paper Hicks doesnt compare to Burns. And as far as Burns firing "experience employees" I know for a fact that a few were fired for lying on time sheets, being lazy and trying to cover up illegal activity.

Wrong! Trust me if he fired someone for any of those reasons he would have been on the news filinge charges on them. Talking about how great he is. An I know one DA that got fired because he called him out for trying to cover up the Sheriffs son's rape charge.

An your probalby right I think the DEVIL himself could have ran for this office and people would have voted for him. That's how sick and tired they are of the corruption that has gone on in that office for more that 20 years.

But the best thing is that the DEVIL is not running a good honest man is.

Well I'll let you know that yes cowboy I can vote and intend on voting for Hicks. I don't think it's right to take off all year long to campaign when you are getting paid by the tax payers money and people are telling me that they can't get the DA's office to file anything, this is cops and victims. If your family was a victim and got helped then more power to you, but there are tons out there that haven't been helped and I think people need to speak up for those people and find someone who actually will commit to helping everyone and treating everyone as equals. It's sad to hear people say all the stuff that happens to them and the DA either is too scared to go after someone or just is buddies with people and won't file charges. That's not how the justice system is supposed to work. Don't forget this guy is working for the public and should helping ALL the public, no matter their social standing or last name.

Cowboy: evidently it's only illegal for Burns to drink at ballgames and hang signs during business hours... The rest of the ppl in the USA are allowed because they aren't Burns..

My take on things is if you're doing a good job...

...your record speaks louder than the signs out there. If you're worried about your record then maybe you're out there putting up signs to promote yourself.

...people put signs out FOR you...rather than you having to put out signs 'on the clock'

... you have integrity, and you don't steal your employers time (especially when your true employers are 'the people')

Also laugh out loud funny that someone on here sees the recent changes in the DA's team(s) and writes....

'I know for a fact that a few were fired for lying on time sheets, being lazy and trying to cover up illegal activity' and can't see the irony!

As DA Burns can terminate his staff..elected officials come in and clean house..they don't have to have a legitimate reason..and people in the district know the true facts on how and what Burns has done..it appears to me that what has happened to Burns happens to lots of politicians..power goes to their heads and they think they can do whatever and they are abovethe rules that the rest of us have to follow..now Burns' chickens have simply come home to roost and he is frantic trying to justify his actions because he has an opponent..it simply cannot be done...it can't all be swept under the rug..he has been a foolish person..he got a freebie..appointed without having to prove himself as a candidate and he has shown that he cannot handle it..he doesn't have what it takes to be the man in charge..maybe as an ADA he could win some cases...BUT he is not capable as DA

Just like it's ok for you to totally reach for something that isn't there is cowboys response. Did the part about him not condoning affairs mean nothing to you?? He simply made a statement that she is pretty, not that it's ok for other men to sleep with her.
Way to bewilder it into your bewildered mind. Come on now, you are smarter than that.
Mercy. You folks are relentless.

The word 'but' used in the right place is so powerful. For example - see Talledega Nights -'but no offense intended'. So Cowboy's 'not condoning affairs BUT' actually speaks volumes.

Yes we are relentless.... and we won't rest til Burns is out!

And yes..smarter than that? But then we know, no one could ever be as smart as you!!!

BTW

Try reading:

'I don't condone affairs but she is a pretty gal'

and compare it to

'She is a pretty gal but I don't condone affairs'

It kinda alters the whole emphasis of the statement.

Just sayin'.

I guess I am, because comments such as the one above are just ignorant. They also reflect on how immature you really are.

I don't question your intelligence. I do, however, question how sound your mind is.
