Just watched that video on WKTV a court room full of uniformed officers standing around on our dime. The county is broke and we are watching these guys stand around like vigilantes. Can't they just wait to get home and watch the news themselves. Wounder how many were getting paid overtime.

Burger shot himself. He knows it and the entire Oneida County Sheriff's office know it. Brown shot from on the run and hit nothing. Burger even shot the inside of his own police car.

I think the deputy sheriff shot himself. I've seen MPs in the military do that. I've even seen a MP shoot himself in the foot during inspection.

Cops can panic and just start shooting. How else can you explain NYC cops taking 40+ shots (on multiple occasions) to take down one unarmed man?

No doubt he shot himself. Rumor was all around when it happened, and that came from cops.

Everyone knows he shot himself including his peers. If he had shot the officer they would've used the forensic evidence against him, but since the cop shot himself it was deemed inconclusive. The funny thing is it was the testimony of a lying deputy that convicted him since the scientific evidence was inconclusive. Even funnier Burger was named deputy of the year.

His mistake was believing he would get a fair trail in Oneida County. They have a 90% conviction rate for a reason. Corruption.

Wouldn't be surprised if brown ran after seing the deputy shoot himself, probably knew he was going to get blamed for it.

Didn't the inside of car get shot too?

Which one?
The deputy or brown?
About the same I guess, neither one can shoot for crap.

I never said he had good character. I wouldn't want either of them living next to me. This case proves how dangerous a corrupt law enforcement official can be. Brown belongs behind bars for attempting or conspiring to commit robbery.

Yes, the bullet that shot THROUGH the door had a downward trajectory at close range. Deputy Burger happened to be behind the door. Hmmm, wonder who fired that round. Amazing what can happen when you're not able to fund a good attorney. The argument in court, Brown was also at close range.

That bullet entered from the INSIDE of the door not the outside. Burger fired into his own car door. He fired into his own foot.

So maybe the cop did shoot himself... Brown still robbed two banks and fired at the cop. Does it make brown any less of a criminal if he himself didn't actually put a bullet into the cop? I don't think so. Brown was already behind bars for other offenses. He IS a career criminal, and the majority of people the likes of him cannot be "rehabilitated."

You're exactly right that he belongs behind bars for his crimes! What you're glossing over is the fact that you think it's okay for Police officers to lie about a situation to save face. Regardless of how much of a criminal the guy is/was, it's not acceptable for police officers or judges, people that have taken an oath to uphold the law, to break those laws EVER! And you're fooling yourself if you think these same "members of law enforcement" that lied about this guy haven't lied about other situations before! But I guess you won't care about that until you have to deal with a cop that lies about you. When law enforcement isn't held accountable for "stepping over the line", then nobody is safe, including people like you who think something like that will never apply to you.

Right on!!!
Law enforcement in this county is out of control. Agree 100% this brown was a dirtbag scum, belongs locked up. Problem is when justice system crosses the line for a conviction. Say what you want, cops and da probably believe they are doing the right thing, but none of us are safe when a cop can shoot himself and pin it on someone else. Once they cross the line, doesn't it become tempting to do it again? Imagine a cop wrecks his car pursuing you for an infraction, isn't it possible they might lie and say you made an aggresive maneuver causing the accident? Its more than possible. In this county its highly probable. That's the problem with lying, starts with one, but there its no end.

Thank you for the kind words, and I think you'll enjoy this: I'm ex-Army so it was Army MPs doing the self-shooting.

The harshest sentence was for the bogus attempted murder charge.
Of course he should do time for the bank robberies but for something he didn't do?

So, its bad if a white innocent guy is wrongly convicted (Steve Barnes, Joe Smith) but its okay if a black innocent (of attempted murder, not bank robbery) guy is wrongly convicted?

Not really since he isn't the one going to prison. Burger and his pals think they are justified lying to put someone in prison. They have no conscience.
