A brilliant scientist though he was, Griffin misused his scientific discovery. Illustrate this point by giving two examples from the story, Footprints without Feet.

A true scientist is always law-abiding. He does something useful for mankind. Scientists study nature. So, the old name for a scientist was ’A Natural Philosopher’. A philosopher will never do such acts. These are like setting a house on fire, looting a shopkeeper, or stealing cash. So, Griffin was not a philosopher. Therefore, he was not a true scientist either. One wonders why he did not put his discovery to some better use. He easily lost control of himself. But a scientist has to be very patient. In the end, he escapes like a criminal. These things show that he was certainly not as a true scientist.
