    This is really a nonsense crime, for Mr Burk would do anything to help anyone. I pray for him and his family thru this terrible ordeal. And yes I agree with the last post, we need to send a strong message about not putting up with crimes. What is wrong with this world today?? Suppose to be love thy neighbor, not shoot thy neighbor. Hang in there Mr Burk, and get well fast.
