Wis. Supreme Court to rule in police shooting

WEAU.com

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The Wisconsin Supreme Court is scheduled to rule in the case of a man convicted of shooting and injuring two Milwaukee police officers in 2009.

Julius Burton was sentenced to 80 years in prison after pleading guilty to charges related to the shooting of the officers. Burton wanted to withdraw his pleas, arguing that his former attorney and the lower court didn’t properly advise him, but a state appeals court denied his request.  

Burton took his case to the state Supreme Court, which was set to rule on it Wednesday.

The officers were monitoring students leaving a high school when they saw Burton violating a city ordinance. Burton shot both officers at close range in their faces.

The officers returned to duty about a year later.

  1. Here this Julius Burton was sentenced to 80 yr.s in prison for shooting two cops. He didn`t kill them and the cops are back on the force, but when s cop blows a innocent person to bits – ya know over kill – they usually get their 2 + weeks paid vacation and sometimes even promoted. This isn`t right giving this Burton guy 80 yr.s and he didn`t even kill anyone.

    1. I know what transpired: “The officers were monitoring students leaving a high school when they saw Burton violating a city ordinance. Burton shot both officers at close range in their faces”.

      Someone got tired of police harassment, and didn’t feel like allowing these two pigs to rough him up for littering. (they say “city ordinance” rather than tell us what happened because they want to hide how petty the harassment was)
      This guy is a hero, because he stood up to the tyrants. I hope he gets freed, but shooting two cops in the face is a tough charge to beat. We’ll have to make sure he gets out when we storm the Bastille.
