    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 know better

    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!

  • Three sides

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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 .

    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.

    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.

    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.
