Suit Against Officer Is an 'Aggravation'

June 04, 1989

Re: "Family Sues Police Officer Who Saved Woman" (Times, May 25).

This was a tragic situation, and I wouldn't put this to pen in such a flip manner, but Mr. (Lucius) Parkinson opened the door with his frivolous lawsuit against Officer Devin Chase.

Using Mr. Parkinson's logic of finding someone to fault, he might want to blame himself and sue himself for not teaching his daughter common sense. Although this lawsuit will obviously be "tossed," it will probably still be in Officer Chase's head, an aggravation no cop needs, especially the next time he acts to save a life.
