You can read the Associated Press story on the following websites:
The Kassick family is extremely pleased that the Dauphin County District Attorney's Office has elected to pursue homicide charges against the police officer responsible for David's untimely death. The family would like to thank the Dauphin County District attorney and his staff as well as the Pennsylvania State Police for their hard work and impartial handling of this matter. Their courage in doing what is right and just in criminally charging this police officer is to commended.
David is dead and he should not be. The family would like to respectfully remind the public that while David had his problems and struggled with an addiction, he was loved and will be deeply missed. The family is comforted by the knowledge that the individual who caused David's death will be held to answer for her cowardly and criminal behavior. The prosecution is a substantial step towards closure following a horrifying tragedy.

Most people don’t realize it, but parking lots are among the most dangerous places in America. An extraordinary number of accidents, injuries and crimes occur each year in parking lots and parking garages.
The Slusser Law Firm wants you to know that for this reason, the law imposes a duty on parking lot owners to protect their customers, with proper lighting, maintenance, signs and security. A parking lot owner can be held liable in court to someone who was injured or harmed if the lot wasn’t made properly safe.
If you have been injured in a parking lot or garage accident, consult a lawyer from the Slusser Law Firm to determine if someone other than yourself is responsible for your injuries.
Here’s a look at some of the dangers of parking lots, and some of the reasons that parking lot owners may be held responsible for them.
