Daniel Burns was stopped by FHP Trooper Jeffery Dale Young, Aug 18th 1987, on interstate I-75 in Ellenton, Fl. Inside Daniel's cadillac was cocaine, he was confronted by the trooper. Daniel resisted and while fighting with the trooper he pulled the trooper's gun.
The trooper (pictured below), while pleading for his life, was shot in the face one time and died at the scene. There were witnesses to the incident. He was sentenced to the death penalty.
We, the undersigned, ask Gov. Rick Scott to expedite this case and sign the death warrant for Daniel Burns.
He has been through his appeal process and is sitting on death row while Trooper Jeffery Young's family is still wondering where the justice is being served.
