Re: “Judging Burnett

I used to truly have faith in the American justice system although always negating the major problem of our flawed judicial system - power-hungry egos and self-promoting officials (judges, prosecutors, law enforcement etc.).

Fortunately, there is a GOD and paybacks are a b----, whether in this life or the next! Never doubt karma as I've seen it play out in this lifetime first hand! Maybe you're experiencing the same and wondering why???? What goes around, definitely comes around!

What "select" tainted public "servants" (servants whose only purpose "serves" themselves) do not realize is that the elected officials that are respected and revered in their constituents eyes are the ones that are man/woman enough to admit that they have made a mistake, made an error or rush to judgement decision. The majority of humanity is human and forgiving. That's what makes a real male/female official stand out in the public eye - not one that cowers behind by refusing an interview after making a judicial decision that although construed just at the time due to the available evidence is now not refuted or overturned by current undeniable DNA evidence that refutes the prior decision.

I ask you Mr. ( I will not give you the respect of calling you Judge as there is only one Judge in my eyes) Burnett how do you sleep at night when even the victims parents disagree with your verdict and sentence. I ask you to consider your feelings if one of your loved ones was sentenced to death or life in prison unjustly. Although I myself strongly support the death penalty (with DNA evidence only), this CAN happen to you and/or yours and the "Memphis Three" case is, to date anyway, living proof of that.

Try putting yourself in the spotlight in a positive light for a change. If you want public admiration and the respect of your constituents buck the "system" and earn it - eat some "humble pie". The public supports humility not arrogance. You might want to consider questioning the motives of your advisors or PR people if this is not the route they deemed advisable.

If you choose not to exert your influence and clout in a positive way to do what you can to rectify this injustice, I would never wish you ill or harm but I do wish you endless sleepless nights to think about your decision as, in the end, justice will prevail.

Most sadly and unfortunate, however positive your accomplishment may be during the duration of your tenure as a public official, unless you take some sort of positive measures to "do the right thing" not only will this haunt your public life but I assure you that you will go down in the history books with your only "claim to fame" being as the judicial fool and evil doer responsible for the unjust ruling of the "Memphis Three" case!

I pray you will make the right decision. God bless you!
