the prescription of 5 lead aspirins
Caution, Marshal, too many aspirins at one time can cause stomach bleeding!

Will the good Marshal argue that the bad guy simply died of a drug overdose?

Really Similiar to Bernie Goetz

I know that Bernard Goetz spent a few years in jail for a very similar act. I can't recall if Goetz ended up killing his assailants, and I'm not even sure if he was convicted of a murder charge, but he did face prosecution for his actions. Likewise this man, who thankfully saved his life and those of his co-workers, needs to face charges because reasonable people can view his actions and find them to be criminal.

Wonder if he's setting up diminished capacity, or an insanity defense?

I can't see the relationship between Benard Goetz and this case. Goetz did server time on a weapons charge but not for murder or assault. I can see how they started out similar but diverged very soon and far apart.

You would think so especially with him continuing to run his mouth but I doubt that it will fly.

I think the criterion for "diminished capacity" is being unable to tell right from wrong, not being unable to tell smart from stupid -- which is what Mr. Ersland's continuing verbal diarrhea seems to indicate...

Since we have wandered far away from the actual discussion of tactics and are now firmly into the legal aspect, I'm going to end this.

If you have new news or information, and wish to discuss the legal aspects (issues), open a new thread in L&CR.

As Antipitas said, open a thread in L&P to discuss if you wish.
