It appears that "you comment

It appears that "you comment posters" are just as Evil, angry and ugly as you accuse Mr. Burney of being. So there must be some truth in, it takes one to know one. Get a life.

I can not believe that

I can not believe that people can slander, judge, and criticize others. No matter how flat the pancake is, there are 2 (TWO) sides. Do not set your sights too low.

Your posts are laughable!

Your posts are laughable! Are you a "hunting buddy" afraid you won't have somewhere to hunt? You need new friends. Just remember when you lay down with dogs you will wake up with fleas!

LISTEN CLOSE....FYI for

LISTEN CLOSE....FYI for those who are commenting, you have no idea of what really took place, OH and you were not there. There is a lot more to it than you think. I am one of Mr. Burney's support group friends, as far as finding character witness, we in unison, your comments that are posted, you have nothing better to do than to judge another person. So for the "End of the story".. Jesus teaches about Criticizing Others Matthew 7 "Do not judge, or you too will be judges. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye' How can you say to your brother,'Let me take the speck out of your eye, when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye. We are not wasting out time with these comments, we are in unison. Jay has a lot of character, witnesses and friends.

You may say you know Jay,

You may say you know Jay, but obviously you have not seen
His violent behavior. Jay has acted out with friends
and family as long as I have known him. I've never wished ill will
on anyone!! This is and was not a surprise to me or those that know
the true Jay.

One and only question

Were you there either? And if many of his neighbors are saying basically the same thing, there might be something to it.

It was only a matter of time

It was only a matter of time with this guy. He has gotten away with a lot of bad behavior because of his name. Hopefully he can grow up before he really hurts someone and ends up in prison.

Jay Burney

Jay burney is a violent, evil man.

Now little John you know you

Now little John you know you shouldn't have pulled out your gun in this man. Even if you were in your own driveway. You know better. Your daddy would be very upset with you. Now shame on you .

Wait, who was the real victim here?

THIS CONFRONTATION OCCURRED IN MR. BURNEY’S DRIVEWAY. So obliviously the person with road rage was the "victim." Think about what you would do if you pulled in your driveway, and found that someone had followed you home, and you now find yourself involved in a “road rage” incident. I wasn’t there and don’t know what happened, BUT I THINK IT IS A CRITICAL POINT THAT THIS “ROAD RAGE” INCIDENT TOOK PLACE IN MR. BURNEY’S DRIVEWAY.

Trust me jay burney is no

Trust me jay burney is no victim! You weren't there and you obviously don't know him other wise you wouldn't have wasted your time posting this.

Embarrassment to the family

Embarrassment to the family

Jay Burney is not a nice

Jay Burney is not a nice person. It will be interesting to follow this case .
I would not want responsibility to find character witnesses on his behalf.
You'd have better odds winning the lottery!!

Hope he is finally held

Hope he is finally held accountable for something!

Road rage in Glen

Road rage in Glen Meade???????

Idiots making law abiding

Idiots making law abiding gun owners look bad. This guy needs some jail time.

Neighbors in State of Terror

I live in Glen Meade right near this jerk -- he endangered the lives of our community by discharging his gun gun in reckless manner -- could have killed us neighbors. I hope DA Ben David ads more charges -- like discharging a gun within city limits and going armed to the terror of the public. Burney is terror, and needs to be locked up behind bars.

If you're counting on Ben

If you're counting on Ben David to add more charges "it ain't gonna happen 'cause Ben David knows who to charge and who not to charge!!"

Really??

What in the world makes people act like this.....I don't get it

maybe he is from creekwood

maybe he is from creekwood

finally

Take it from me, Jay Burney needs to go to prison!

Dumb rednecks!!! Yee Ha

Dumb rednecks!!! Yee Ha Boss!!!

I dont know...

It like he thinks he owns the roads!! He acts like he has a freeway named after him or something.

Not named after him...

...but after a family member that actually made something out of his life.

Could be that his dog ate

Could be that his dog ate his sons homework??
