He shouldnt have tried to rob the place, he might still be here if he had half a brain.

But he was an idiot and chose to rob a hardworking citizen. Dont try and demoize the innocent, he didnt wake up planning on killing somebody, but the teen woke up with a plan to rob the pharmacy.

Another case of a drug addict trying to rob a pharmacy for Oxycontin (likely), only this time the robber (s) got a lot more than a high out of it. The video looks like a straight up drug house shoot out to be honest,but all that aside I believe the pharmacist wil not go to trial and the case will be dismissed. I would like to see the reports on the head wound to see if the kid was dead or not after the first shot. Because if he was or was incapacitated then yes a murder charge would be fitting,if not then no charge would be fitting.

FOUND IT!

This is why he is being charged



Ersland is charged in the May 19 death of 16-year-old Antwun Parker. A security video shows two men bursting into the pharmacy at Southwest 59th and Penn streets. Parker is shot and Ersland chases the second man outside. He then walks past Parker to get a second gun, returns to Parker and opens fire.


So now it is he was already getting a second gun before this kid was getting up




If that first shot had been fatal, we wouldn't be here," Prater said. "That was a legitimate shot taken by Mr. Ersland when he was in imminent threat of death or bodily injury. He's defending himself."

A medical examiner said Parker would have survived the head injury, but died from the shooting to his abdomen.

"Jerome Ersland was justified in shooting Antwun Parker in the robbery attempt," Prater said. "Ersland is accused of exceeding that lawful authority through deadly force when Ersland shot Parker five times in the abdomen with a .380-caliber pistol after the failed robbery."




"When you put a pistol just a foot away from his chest and you fire five rounds into that child's chest, in my opinion, the laws of this state do not protect in the use of that deadly force," Prater said.


Prater is the DA on the case.

Autopsy reports show the kid was still alive after the head shot.

Peace

The article said the thug WAS alive after the first shot. But that is to be expected, if he were already dead how could he put his head up? Backs up the pharmacists story if you ask me.

And if the first head shot killed him then the other 5 rounds into a dead body would not be proof of "additional" murder.

Yes but he just didn't shoot this kid because he was getting up. After he chased the armed one out he went to grab his other gun and walked over to shoot the kid. It was not like the kid was getting up and he shot him out of some sort of defesive reaction

So, the guy was afraid of being attacked again by an unarmed robber with a hole in his head, who couldn't get off the floor.

Right.

Thanks


I think that in light of that, and if the kid was really getting back up (and it is not the pharmacist trying to cover his tracks) then no charge should be filed, he was simply making sure the threat was defeated. This is only being made into a case IMO because the age of the kid, if this was some 30 year old junky then this would be a non-issue.

Its messed up when every move you make as a victim is scrutinized when the robbers plan does not work out. Some how it turns into some kind of humanitarian issue.

Too bad, life is not a game! They gambled with their life and lost. It could have very easily been that pharmacist on the floor.

Its unfortunate that he is now behind bars. What a crazy world we live in.

Right, and if you want to argue that route then if the kid was dead AND then the pharmacist fired more shots into him then the pharmacists could and should be charged with abuse of a corpse. But none of this matters as you are just trying to pull out arguments that are unrelated in an attempt to discredit someone who doesn't share your opinion-WHICH I DO, I just wanted more information, and I was kindly provided that by Dr. Love so this is mute now.

Why does the Oklahoma County District Attorney seem to think the robber was unconsious on his back?



Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater said that Ersland was justified in shooting Antwun Parker once in the head on May 19. But Prater says Ersland went too far when he shot Parker five more times in the abdomen while Parker lay unconscious on the floor.




Evidence at the scene indicates this man was not moving

Okay this guy is going to do time.

After he shot him in the head he chased the one with the gun outside.

Now there are only 2 guns in that pharmacy and they bother belong to the pharmacist

The pharm walks over to his counter and grabs his OTHER gun.

Then walks over to the kid on the ground, stands over him and shoots him 4 more times in the gut.

So if this kid was getting up the whole time he was not that much of a threat as he was not able to get up and had no gun.

If the pharm walked over and shot the kid just as he was getting up, grabbing his other gun shows an intent to kill before the threat.

I wonder how many years the one who ran away will get? I hope he has a good supply of Vaseline.

Peace

yeah let apply that "it's a threat untill it is dead" caveman mentality on this one.

The kid that got away is still a threat he should get the death penalty

Once the courts get done with him, he'll probably be wishing he was the one who got killed.

People who want the prison system to be used to repeatedly rape people, because it soothes their sense of punishment......it's a form of transfered sociopathology.

One thing I do not understand is how the coroner can be SURE the kid was unconscious, unless of course the head wound was massive and there is no way a person could survive/function with such a wound.

I do get that the abdominal wounds would only bleed after death, and many fatal head wounds do take a while to cause death, but if that was the case (the head wound was so massive it would cause immiment death and 100% unconsciousness) then would the other five shots really constitute murder? Thug would have been dead either way.

Well there is not much rape going on in prison, i think it is more of a personal fantasy people have.

Does not matter if the kid was out or not the fact is the guy grabbed his 2nd gun shot him while he was down 4 times while the kid was unarmed.
