David Kassick (10080)

2/2/2015: An officer reported that she attempted to stop Kassick for expired stickers, at which point he fled in his vehicle to where he was staying. Upon fleeing the vehicle, the officer used her stun gun, and thought that Kassick was reaching for his waist, and shot him to death in his back while he was lying on the ground. The DA noted that the camera footage seemed as though Kassick was reaching to pull the stun-gun probe from his back. Drugs were found near Kassick and in his system. http://news.yahoo.com/pa-officer-charged-fatal-shooting-unarmed-motorist-165424205.html
