I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one that is greatly enjoying this HOT weather that came out of nowhere! I'm very sure that by the end of this summer we're all going to be EXTREMELY TAN, I'm talking Jersey Shore style! Anyways, so since my last blog,many things have happend! For instance, MAY 21st CAME AND WENT AND WE'RE ALL ALIVE AND WELL, SO LET THIS BE A LESSON FOR ALL YOU 2012 "OH MY GOSH THE WORLD IS GOING TO END" PEOPLE! Relax and breathe! You'll be fine=)
So on this edition of "SERIOUSLY?!?!?!?" I would like to talk about an article I read today on AOL.com that really got me very upset.I thought we lived in a country that congratulated its citizens on great heroic deeds. The following piece is from www.huffingtonpost.com:
"The controversy in the case stems from a May 19, 2009, incident in which Parker and another young man burst into Reliable Discount Pharmacy in Oklahoma City. The men, armed and wearing ski masks, allegedly ordered two female employees working behind the counter to give them money and drugs. Instead, the two women ran to the back of the store.
The men then allegedly pointed their guns at Ersland. The pharmacist drew his own weapon, a small semiautomatic handgun he had in his pocket, and fired at Parker, striking the youth in the head. Surveillance video from inside the store captured Parker’s fall to the ground as Ersland chased his accomplice from the store."
Mr. Ersland not only saved his life but the lives of 2 other women! And now he's in prison for defending his life against two criminals who were armed?! I'm a Criminal Justice major and I'll be the first to say THAT OUR CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM SOME TIMES DOES NOT ACCOMPLISH WHAT IT IS SET OUT TO DO! It has it's faults and failures such as in this story where an innocent man is behind bars! If you want to support Jerome than log onto Facebook and go onto the page titled "Jerome Ersland Should Not Have Been Found Guilty" and support this man! THIS IS A GREAT INJUSTICE!
