Unarmed White Man Executed in Cold Blood by Female Cop While Being Tazed
In February 2015, Pennsylvania’s Hummelstown police force officer Lisa Mearkle tasered an unarmed white man named David Kassick repeatedly while he swarmed on the snow covered ground, while screaming at the zapped victim to “Stop moving!” After a bit, while still tasing him, Lisa Mearkle shot David Kassick twice in the back, executing him on the spot in cold blood.
Lisa Mearkle was charged with third degree murder, voluntary manslaughter and involuntary manslaughter, but the prosecution made a limp case, leading to the jury having no option but to acquit the murderer. She walked out of the Dauphin County Courthouse in Harrisburg, PA, resigned from Hummelstown police force and received $120K severance.
At the trial, Lisa Mearkle testified under oath that she feared for her life because David Kassick was reaching for his jacket. Apparently, a man who literally can’t control his movements, trying to reach for the prongs stuck in him that are continually electrocuting him is an excuse for summary execution. The video clearly shows the citizen killer never lets up on the stun gun.
That’s what happens when the state has a monopoly on criminal prosecution. The state decides who to charge, whether to charge them, whom to summon for this particular case’s jury duty, and the strength of the case presented to the jury.
Lisa Mearkle claimed she tased David Kassick because he tried to run away during a traffic stop. Seeing as white men get killed by cops more often than any other demographic, it’s really not surprising.
According to the database compiled by reporters at the Washington Post, if you’re white, you are twice as likely to be killed by police than if you’re black, and shockingly 22 times more likely to be killed by police if you’re a man, than you would be if you were a woman. White men remain the most oppressed demographic in North America.
