EXCERPT: “The report lists “accidental injury, intoxication, suicide or homicide” as the cause of death. Gonzales died from injuries that had been “inflicted by law enforcement officers,” it continues. “Knee strikes” were listed as the means of death.”

EXCERPT: “Kacz, 26, was in civilian clothes when he chased a driver who cut him off about 2 a.m. on Beltway 8 at Spencer, said prosecutor Joe Owmby. When the driver stopped at a light, Kacz got out of his Nissan pickup and tapped his gun on the sideview mirror, then chased the sport utility vehicle to an apartment complex, where he fired the gun at least three times at a passenger. Kacz is at least the fourth Pasadena officer prosecuted criminally since last year. His conviction comes at a time when Pasadena officers Jason W. Buckaloo and Christopher S. Jones are under investigation for their role in the July 21 homicide of Pedro Gonzales Jr.”
