Jurors in Oklahoma convicted a pharmacist in the murder of armed robbers. Jerome Jay Ersland was convicted of first degree murder despite a self defense in a wild shoot 'em up. Originally, he was viewed as a "hero" by locals. Now Oklahoma City neighbors of the jury members are angry and expressing outrage at the jury verdict. This is a link [Note: and earlier version of this post unsuccessfully attempted to embed the video of the raw interrogation of Mr. Ersland] to the Oklahoman story at NewsOK.com by Nolan Clay. If you take the time to watch the video you might find yourself understanding why the jurors found the Pharmacist guilty of murder.
It's interesting that local men and women who sat through the trial, heard the evidence, and the testimony of Mr. Ersland felt compelled under the Oklahoma law to find the pharmacist guilty but are now vilified by their family and neighbors.
Maybe there are problems with the jury instructions in this case (not that I know one way or the other,) but these Oklahoma jurors were serious-minded folks doing the job required of them under the law. Criticizing them without seeing or hearing the evidence is moronic.
