Parson, Thats very true, and its been discussed alot on the OSA forum with alot of folks becoming very bitter over it. It really boils down to this; Jerome should have kept his piehole shut after the shooting, it did as much harm as the surviellance camera does. I understand it doesn't show the BG after the first shot, and thats up to his defense team to argue that point, and the DA kinda stepped in the poo with his comments. So now its all gonna have to be hashed out in court. My opinion, and mine only, I think Jerome screwed up. The first shot was justified, but that first walk around, then go and get another gun, and empty it into someone. I understand all the effects of tunnelvision, adrenialin pump, and all that, but alot of time expired between the first shot, and getting the second gun. I don't know, things may work in Jerome's favor, but right now it doesn't look good for him.parson45 said:Giz, everything you said is true. However, under Oklahoma law, you can only use deadly force until the threat is neutralized. It LOOKS like Jerome went for another gun then turned and finished the kid off, and the DA SAYS that the kid was unarmed and unconscious. Now, the unarmed part doesn't matter. He was part of the robbery, and the other guy definitely was armed. But the "down and unconscious" part does matter. The burden of proof is now on Jerome to prove that the kid was awake and that he (Jerome) still thought the kid was a threat.
