Asian American law student at the UPenn arrested after shooting incident

Joseph Cho, a 31-year-old Korean American who's a second year law student at the University of Pennsylvania was arrested in connection with a shooting incident in an apartment. Among the charges include aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, and vandalism.

even scarier, the two intended victims were both Asians of Indian descent. And Cho's motive for the shooting: he claims that the two people were suspected terrorists?

Has the stress of law school taken its toll on this student? Or is this something more insidious: a hate motivated crime?

I'm surprised this has not made national news. Not yet anyway. Especially because this shatters the whole "model minority" myth of the East Asian American community.

He may have had mental health issues.

To the law folks out there: I heard he was going to summer at the Philly office of Dechert. I wonder if they're going to mention this little gem during summer orientation!

Would Joseph Cho still keep his summer offer from Dechert? Imagine having a lawyer represent you who tried to shoot people he thought were suspected terrorist. lol.

Re: Asian American law student at the UPenn arrested after shooting incident

From what I know, he has been barred from campus and is in police custody. I kind of doubt he will ever finish his law degree, particularly not at Penn.

Not to mention how he will likely never pass the character and fitness portion of the bar...

So whether or not he would accept the offer is moot, his actions pretty much destroyed any chance of him becoming a lawyer any time soon.

But man, I wonder if he just snapped or if he always had mental problems. Oh well, most of the people at firms have severe personality disorders anyway, he would have fit right in.
