Once a Burns Victim, Still a Burns Victim (10/29/17)

October 29, 2017

The State of Arizona, represented by our Attorney General, essentially promised inaction on restitution for the civil fraud perpetrated by Michael S. Burns of Camelback Consign and Design. (See below.)

And inaction it has delivered. In full. 

Hats off to the Consignment Vampire and his co-conspirators. You got away with theft. And I guess Mike, at least, knew that he would - based on his conversations with me and those reported by the news media. 

I can't help but wonder. Would the result would have been the same had the winning AG run on the Democratic Party ticket? 

As it is, my experience suggests that the saga chronicled in this blog is just one of many, many more never reported and never appropriately resolved. Because, after all, why invest the time and effort in a system that simply doesn't deliver on a promise of "justice for all"?

Well, for those of us whose faith in the justice system is no more, perhaps faith in karma is the answer.

Mr. Attorney General Brnovich: 


Guess not. Bad connection. 

Well, the fact is, this time, I didn't actually call Attorney General Brnovich. Arizona's AG, turns out, doesn't listen to average citizens or victims, not even when they complain in unison.(See my post, Complaints, Complaints, Complaints.)  All I - or any other Burns victims - got for our considerable pain and inconvenience was nothing. So now I talk to myself in public. Like this.

More than a year after the Office of the Attorney General of Arizona sent me an email explaining how it had failed to help me - and oh so many others, by the way - to receive recompense in the form of justice or money from Camelback Consign and Design, I continue to hear from other victims, who wonder what justice or recompense they might expect.

Gosh. Reading new "old" complaints about Camelback Consign and Design reminds of the good "bad old days." That's when I thought that the Attorney General of Arizona might actually be compelled to serve and protect the good citizens of the state from a particularly nasty predator who came to be known as the "Consignment Vampire" aka Mike Burns. 

I just came across this excerpt from an campaign email for the former AG candidate, Mike Brnovich, from a New Times article

Nope. Public outrage at the fact that AG Mark Brnovich has failed to deliver any more justice than the Republican AG he replaced - at least in this so terribly egregious case - is nil. 

Does it make you feel better that his wife, Susan Brnovich, is a Superior Court judge up for reelection? Her Judicial Performance Commission Results, as reported in the state's 2016 General Election Publicity Pamphlet are excellent. Her lowest rating, for the categories Legal Ability, Integrity, Communication Skills, Judicial Temperament and Administrative Performance, from Litigant/Witness Responses (i.e., average citizens) is 97%!


On the one hand, I sorta wish Susan Brnovich's zeal would rub off on her husband. On the other, I gotta wonder if the result recorded reflects the complete apathy of all but one or two of the many (?) litigants and witnesses that were asked to provide a rating. 


I'm still on the look out for the following items that Mike and Justin Burns sold and failed to recompense me for:
