AMHERST, Mass. (WWLP) - The Committee for Justice for Jason Vassal held another rally
today on the UMASS-Amherst Campus.
The goal was to garner more attention.. hoping to lead to national headlines..
Jason Vassell is accused of stabbing two men he says broke into his UMASS Amherst dorm room and shouted racial epithets at him.
He is facing attempted murder charges and has since withdrawn from the University.
Today Justice for Jason supporters were urging others to call the DA's office urging District Attorney Elizabeth Scheibel to drop the charges.
