If I am working cleaning tables in McDonalds and a drunk with a prosthetic leg, glass eye and amputated arm comes in and attacks me and I defend myself and he falls hits his head and dies----is it my fault?

You'll be detained until Grissom and Willows arrive on the scene. At that time they will do an autopsy and discover he actually died from a crappily made Ranch BLT. You'll be released, and McD's will make you employee of the month. Kudos on the designated parking spot.

OMG!! What is wrong with you people. A man is dead. He will not get to spend anymore holidays with his family, he will not kiss his wife goodnight, he will not hang out with his friends, he will not show up for work ever again, he will not get to watch his grandkids grow up or be able to enjoy his own children....Give me a break. You people should be ashamed of yourselves. I have learned to pray for both families though because in the end God will judge us all....there will be no hiding and no covering it all up.....god bless you all........

you are a horrible person to say something like that Billy was a stand up guy and was well respected. How dare you say something like that you must be an evil p.o.s. it just blows my mind.

He died as a result of his attempting to fight the trooper. He died as a result of falling and hitting the floor after the trooper had defended himself. There is a difference in drinking and drinking and driving SHUTUP. Just because someone drinks does not mean they will hurt someone. Drinking and driving, on the other hand has proven time and time again to be deadly. You need to get real and SHUTUP because you were not there, you are not that trooper and you do not know what he went through. Like I said it is better that he be dead than for some innocent child to be.

This topic should be took off because it is disrespectful to Billy and his family. Nonone knows what really happened but Billy and God because you know BJ will say whatever and they will believe him just because he were's a patch. So my opinion is that you all should let this topic go because someday BJ will be judged by the right man GOD so please let Billy and his family rest in peace if you all have any morals at all.
so sad

There was no tape and the camera in the jail as you pull into the jail is just that a camera and not a vedio. I have taken several people into that jail in the past several years. The tropper did nothing wrong, just defending himself. Just becase the man was handcuff does not mean he was helpless. If you have not been in that cituation then you have no idea what Burton was up against.
bull shit!!! what ever free your heart and makes you feel better about it.

How the heck did the trooper suffer? Just because he is a trooper doesn't make him "God". I will never stop my vehicle if he tries to pull me over for anything. I will never trust him again as he could get pissed and kill me or a family member and get away with it simply because he is LE. How could anybody ever trust him to protect them ?
good one haha!!!

If you are not a cop yourself, I will kiss your ass in public you lousy piece of shit. All officers and jail personnel were told what to say and will always take up for each other. I would also say that the jail personnel were thinking if they didn't lie for BJ that he would come after them next and feared for their own lives. I would bet anything on that!!!
i bet you dont have anything to bet with old billy was a sorry drunk NOT GUILTY DUMMY AS@

I think you misunderstood the question. Or maybe you did not know how to answer. When an officer of the law can no longer defend themselves from criminals then neither can we. In any situation when you attack people you run the risk of getting hurt. Maybe he should have stuck with women and children to attack. Theres no fool like an old fool. Mr Burton did not cause him to get drunk. Mr Burton did not cause him to drive drunk. Mr Burton did not cause him to attack. And if Mr Burton had not defended himself he might have been severely injured himself.
