Now, I know my readers are very intelligent and have minds of their own. So, I will report and you decide. This report, although posted by CNS News, was reported by the AP. So let’s all be Uncooperative Readers and read between the lines on this one, shall we?
From CNS News:
Oklahoma City – Confronted by two holdup men, pharmacist Jerome Ersland pulled a gun, shot one of them in the head and chased the other away.
Then, in a scene recorded by the drugstore’s security camera, he went behind the counter, got another gun, and pumped five more bullets into the wounded teenager as he lay on the floor.
Now Ersland has been charged with first-degree murder in a case that has stirred a furious debate over vigilante justice and self-defense and turned the pharmacist into something of a folk hero.
