A couple of two bit punks tried to rob a pharmacy here in my hometown, Oklahoma City. The pharmacist, a veteran, decided to take care of business the old fashioned way. He reached for his gun and let the punk have it.
Here's the write up from The Daily Oklahoman:
The problem came when the druggist put more shots into the punk after he was down. Actually, it's no problem for me, I'm not gonna loose any sleep over it. The local District Attorney's office had a problem with it, however, and proceeded to charge the druggist with murder.
Defense attorneys for the druggist say that as a military veteran, trained for combat, no one can really understand what he was going through unless they have been robbed themselves.
It is a travesty that this man should have to defend himself twice, first from a violent robber, second from a publicity hungry District Attorney. I really don't care if the robber was already down when he got shot six more times. Really, I don't.
IF THE PUNK HAD OBEYED THE LAW AND MINDED HIS OWN BUSINESS, HE'D STILL BE ALIVE. HE DESERVED WHAT HE GOT.
Period. End of Story.
