'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Letter to the Editor
Wednesday, April 10, 2013, 9:01 p.m.
 

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.
