Lawyer's bad example

After reading the accounts of what led to the death of Seth O'Donnell, I am perplexed as to how his family's attorney, Noah Geary, could conclude that his shooting was not justified and say, “I think excessive force was employed, and the family of the victim has an excessive force case against the state police if they choose” (“Inquest examines fatal shooting of scissor-wielding man in East Huntingdon store,” March 27 and TribLIVE.com).

Mr. Geary, exactly how many times did Trooper Chad Cope need to be stabbed? How many more innocent victims needed to be threatened?

You would think that someone of Mr. Geary's intellect and high level of education would be able to come up with a more intelligent conclusion.

Unfortunately, he is yet another example of an attorney trying to file a frivolous lawsuit.

Mr. Geary, it is people like you who give attorneys a bad name.
