As Casey Anthony prepares to leave jail...

This story is unbelievable.  An Oklahoma City pharmacist, and a disabled veteran of the US Air Force, has been found guilty of first degree murder and sentenced to life in prison for defending his and his employees lives.  If this story received one tenth the coverage of the Casey Anthony Debacle, America would be demanding the Governor of Oklahoma pardon this good man.

Check out his credentials at this site:

This is becoming a sad place to live.  Criminals are given more rights than citizens, and citizens are jailed for protecting their own rights because the government refuses to do it.

This is the e-mail I sent to the governor of Oklahoma.  I would ask all of you to do the same.


My father is in the Oklahoma Military Hall of Fame.  He is a Navy Cross winner, and has never had a reason to be embarrassed by his home state.  I was not born in Oklahoma.  I was born in a Naval Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland, because my father was serving his country and Oklahoma at a time when a lot of boys from other states wouldn't.  I grew up missing Oklahoma, and if I can talk my wife in to moving there, I intend to settle there before I die.  Oklahoma is as close to Heaven as any mortal will ever come, but this court ruling against Jerome Ersland, another son who has honorably served this nation, is a scandal that makes Oklahoma look bad.

Please pardon Mr. Ersland, or at least commute his sentence.  If my wife or one of my four daughters was working somewhere in this economy, I pray they would have a boss like Jerome Ersland.



  1. Ersland screwed-up when after shooting the robber he got a second gun and pumped 5 more rounds into him. The perp wasn't a threat anymore. That is what the jury saw on the store video. At that point it was murder and not self-defense.

    That being said, Ersland saved his employees and should be heralded as such.

  2. Hardnox,

    I have to disagree with you on this one. When Col. Ersland returned to the store, he was wounded, in addition to being disabled. He felt he couldn't leave a dangerous criminal in the position to further harm his employees should he pass out or die from his wound. I think he did the right thing, and the justice system making him the criminal instead of the victim is wrong.

  3. 10th - I have to agree with HardNox on this one. The best way to have handled it would have been to double tap him the first time - ammo is cheap. However once the guy is down, (shot in the head) coming back, retrieving a second pistol, and putting five more rounds in him put him over the top. We don't go back and finish off the enemy on the battlefield, you sure as hell don't do it in a Pharmacy in OK.

    Now - life in prison - that is another subject. I do think that your route of going to the governor to get the sentence commuted is probably the reasonable route.

  4. They're GUILTY, just like McVeigh.

  5. Guilty or, not...1 LESS street thug who's able to rob the working! Sadly, it was only one and not both of em.
