RAW VIDEO RELEASED – Shows Cop Shoot Man in the Back Twice – Police Supporters Celebrate


Officer Mearkle (pictured) shot an unarmed man, twice, in the back and killed him. Now police supporters are throwing a special “fundraiser” event to support her, while the victim’s family mourns.


UPDATE 11/5/15 — VIDEO RELEASED: Lisa Executes Man While He is Down on the Ground

The raw video has finally been released, and viewers are calling it absolute murder.

David Kassick can be seen struggling on the ground on his belly.

Officer Mearkle tases him again and again without relenting.

The constant electrical shock has David screaming in pain and holding his heart.

But causing the man pain was not enough. Multiple shots can then be heard from Lisa’s gun.

She shot David in the back while he was on the ground in pain. He was unarmed and helpless.

From the tone of her screams and orders, and the fact that she kept tasing him, some suspect that Officer Mearkle was angry and afraid, and decided to kill David and end it all.

Watch the video below and decide for yourself.

SOUTH HANOVER — A restaurant and a police department are both facing scathing criticism after an announcement was made to have a “benefit” for a cop who shot an unarmed man in the back, twice, and killed him.

Officer Lisa Mearkle was charged with killing David Kassick.

Officer Mearkle’s defense team have tried hard to block the release of the video to the public, but it is expected to be released soon if pressure gets strong enough.

Making matters worse, local police and their supporters decided to host a “benefit” for officer Mearkle.

“It’s ridiculous. It’s a slap in the family’s face,” said one of the commenters on the restaurant’s facebook page.

The restaurant is Chick’s Tavern in Hummelstown, PA. After they announced the benefit, citizens have been flooding their Facebook page with negative evaluations and calls for a boycott.

Since announcing the event, they have been getting tons of negative reviews and many expect them to go out of business.

It’s bad enough to unquestioningly support government authority figures who kill civilians, but to sink as low as to hold a “benefit” for the killer afterwards, while the family of the victim is still planning a memorial service  — it’s just a callous, cold thing to do.

A man’s life was taken, needlessly.

And now, while his friends and family are still grieving, these police supporters decide to have a “benefit.”   They will evidently gather to support the killer while they guzzle high fructose corn syrup sodas and feast their guts out.

“I think it’s horrible to even consider it,” said a commenter on their facebook page. 

Lonnie Blough is the owner of Chick’s Hummelstown Tavern and he has been friends with Officer Mearkle for over a decade, according to reports.

Has Lonnie Blough ever stopped to consider the devastation and pain experienced by David’s friends after he was shot twice in the back? How would Lonnie feel if people “pigged out” in this manner after one of his friends died?

Dale Kassick, David’s brother, said of the benefit, “I find that to be appalling.”

“It’s a complete slap in the face. I can’t believe he’s doing that,” he added.

They are holding the event to “raise money” for Officer Mearkle’s legal fees.

The flier bills the event as a “pig roast,” in typical cop humor:

pig roast

An organization called Hunt for Justice, which defended Darren Wilson after he killed Michael Brown, is getting involved in the “pig roast” for Mearkle and plans to support her as well.

Meanwhile, David’s family is planning to bury him this summer and hold a memorial service in Hazleton.

The Facebook page Justice for David NOW has been organizing a boycott of Chick’s Taven.

The original incident happened when Officer Mearkle was trying to pull David over for a traffic stop.

David did not wanted to be left alone by the police and he fled. Officer Mearkle got out of her car and chased after him.

She eventually tased him several times, causing him to lie face down on the ground.

David Kassick is remembered by his family and friends as a gentle friend who always went the extra mile to help people.

His back towards her, she shot him twice.

What is particularly gruesome about the killing is that there was about a 4 second break between each of her shots, suggesting that she wanted to make sure he was dead.

“At the time Officer Mearkle fires both rounds from her pistol, the video clearly depicts Kassick lying on the snow covered lawn with his face toward the ground, furthermore, at the time the rounds are fired nothing can be seen in either of Kassick’s hands, nor does he point or direct anything toward Officer Mearkle,” the arrest affidavit reads.

      the kkk? really? this doesn’t have a damn thing to do with race. but right on cue, there you are MAKING it about race. fat ass Sharpton must be so proud

      • Clint Jaysiel

        You might want to look into the history of how community policing started in america – It was to catch slaves. Literally, their attitude is a direct result of the same attitudes of the KKK. Just because that attitude also gets applied to white people doesn’t mean it wasn’t an attitude shaped by the KKK for black people. It just means that judgmental murderers are willing to murder anyone. You see them acting this way in countries that didn’t enslave another race? Not generally. Thank you, drive through.

    LOL, People in the U.S. don’t get it to much, this lady needs to be found ..made to run shot w/ taser and than shot to death as you did…and than the people need to throw a party as well. Whats good for the goose is good for the gander…..meaning people wake up ….I think people should start shooting cops ….mind you ONLY the ones who abuse people in the community and those caught on video killing unarmed citizens with no do process from our courts. Listen people the video’s show everything an yet they want to come up with all kinds of bullshit as to why the officer shot somebody,…keyword bullshit ….I believe the only time this will shot is when enough people realize and start to retaliate than and only than will cops understand the meaning of protect and serve.

    What happened? Poor officer selection criteria, poor training, and poor procedures combined with lack of independant civilian oversight. Fix those and the vast majority of cases like this will disappear.

      Absolutely no psychological screening…should be yearly.

  • AV

    Wow. She has absolutely not business being a cop.

  • Zephiroth

    The man was on the fucking ground. She could have just walked around to the front of him and kept a safe distance to see his hands. His hands were still visible from where she was standing. It was straight murder. Sadly, I doubt she’ll get life in prison like a civilian would. She’ll end up getting preferential treatment and a pat on the back. What a fucking joke.

    • TheFounderUtopia

      She walked.

      …she just fucking walked, dude.

      I guess we all know what you’ll be down on your knees doing if some guy with a badge whips it out and tells you to suck his [email protected]

      With an attitude like that, you probably ought to invest in a good pair of knee pads 😉

    • OR_Coast_Greenman

      So if a cop tells you to suck his [email protected], we know what you’ll be doing!

    • wiley789

      I would like to see YOU with 50.000 volts coursing through you, do as you seem to think the guy should have done.this was plain and simple MURDER. how on earth she can expect him to do much of anything voluntarily while she is tasing him is the reason she should be in jail. beside the fact, he was at the time presenting no danger to her or anyone else around them. people like you who meekly accept anything they tell you are the problem with society.SHE broke the law, yet your defending her actions. are you mentally challenged ??

    To create the Communist New World Order the cops need to be able to kill people, at will. This is why cops are getting away with killing citizens and not being held accountable for their actions. It’s part of the agenda to build the NWO.

    It was outright murder and I hope she is convicted. She looks very much like a man. ?

    Maybe she thought she had run across one of those new three or four handed mutants since his two regular hands can be clearly seen the whole time she is screaming to see his hands. I saw them, plain as day, but, you know…

  • Melinda Craig

    She was acquitted of all charges last month, even though the video shows his hands are visible to her at the time
