Ariel Neuman Makes Radio Appearance to Discuss Prosecutors Seeking Death Penalty in Fatal LAX Shooting

Bird Marella attorney Ariel Neuman appeared as a guest speaker on KPCC 89.3 Southern California Public Radio to discuss the decision by Los Angeles federal prosecutors to seek the death penalty against alleged LAX shooter Paul Ciancia, for allegedly opening fire inside a LAX Terminal and killing a TSA officer on November 1, 2013.

Mr. Neuman provided insight as to why prosecutors would seek the death penalty when Californians seem to be less supportive of capital punishment and why he’s not surprised by the decision, stating “The defendant, according to the government at least, was targeting federal officers and TSA officers with the idea to specifically make them the victims of his attack, which can be an aggravating factor.”
