    If someone stole my cat, I'd feel sympathy for him... poor bastard.

    Yes, I found the scenario remarkably lacking in enough detail to provide an ethical judgment on my part.

    Remind me of that next time you get pulled over for speeding or accused of doing a rolling stop.

    Do you live in the U.S.? If so, which state permits a person to shoot another for theft of personal property?

    A quick google brings up this from 2012:

    Shoot a Robber, Not a Thief


    Self-defense laws throughout the nation see crimes against persons differently than crimes against property. In most states, you can shoot someone committing a felony crime against your person. In no state may you shoot someone committing a crime against property. The difference is usually straightforward.

    Crimes against persons are where someone is threatened during the crime. They include: murder, rape, robbery (either armed or strong-arm robbery), carjacking, home invasion, arson of occupied building, kidnapping, aircraft or boat piracy, bombing (either thrown or planted), purse-snatching, assault, and battery. [Note that the last two might not be felonies. Minor assault (an idle threat) and minor battery (an uninvited touch) are not felonies, so it would be illegal to shoot the offender.]

    Crimes against property are where no one is threatened. They include: sneak-theft, car break-ins, hub-cap stealing, tire stealing, burglary of unoccupied buildings, pickpocketing, counterfeiting, scamming, and fraud. Dr. Sweet’s grandfatherly advice: Do not shoot anyone committing one of these crimes.

    Ever heard a lawyer say, "Never ask a question you don't already know the answer to"?

    @Tellenbach, don't bother responding to my post. Now.

    For the sake of the scenario, can you please just answer the question?
    I'm aware that there are some factual errors however Heinz did eventually steal the drug that can save his wife.

    No, Mr., Mrs. or Miss post #1, but you joined in 2013. I won't. The question makes no sense.

    Well, what portions are confusing you besides the misuse of the term, pharmacist?
    Also, I don't want to sound snarky but a quick google search could clear anything up. I /too/ should refresh my memory of whether it was the doctor or pharmacist who created the drug through a google search.
    Never the less, what parts -are- confusing you?

    Actually, you sound like a troll. Good luck with that.
