Cornering Burnett

Posted By on Fri, Apr 30, 2010 at 1:21 PM

Judge David Burnett was hobnobbing at Ciao Bacci yesterday evening at what appeared to be a fundraiser for his state senate campaign when a few unexpected guests arrived. Three members of Arkansans Take Action showed up in "Free the West Memphis Three" t-shirts and approached Burnett with video cameras in hand. They asked the judge if he would answer a few questions about the case. Burnett declined, looking a little flustered and uncomfortable. He told the group they did not have permission to take his picture and asked that they put down the cameras. I'm still not sure why you need permission to take a photograph of an adult in a public place, but I'm not a judge. The ATA members then retired to their table for drinks. Later, one of Burnett's guests approached the group and thanked them for being so polite.
