    Pharmacist pleads self-defense, jury says no

    Jurors reject pharmacist’s self-defense plea; convict him of murder - Yahoo! News

    Yesterday, a jury rejected an Oklahoma pharmacist's plea that he was acting in self-defense when he killed a man in an attempted robbery, and sent him to prison for first-degree murder.

    According to Tulsa World, two employees at Reliable Discount Pharmacy testified that Jerome Jay Ersland saved their lives and was a "hero" for shooting at the two masked robbers two years ago, killing one.

    But prosecutors played the store's surveillance video to argue that he was acting in cold-blood when he shot the 16-year-old masked robber, left the store to chase the other robber, returned, grabbed another gun, and then shot the unconscious man five more times.

    Yeah, going back for round two was definitely a bad move for the guy.

    Going back a second time with a different gun probably tipped the balance


    I like the comments from the public on the story about getting him first time, use a bigger gun, the robbers lost their rights when they entered the store etc. It would be the opposite here people would stick up for the oxygen thief.

    people here are flipping out about this guy...they don't understand that the standard that applies to them is pretty close to the standard that applies to us: you can shoot when there's a threat, but when it's not a threat anymore, you can't keep on shooting.
