Final salute to fallen officer

Posted on Thursday, Nov 08, 2007
Under the gilded dome of the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul, the family of Chuck Cassidy yesterday remembered the slain officer as "a gentle man with a perfect heart" and challenged the city to come together to stop the violence. Before an audience of thousands, Cassidy's brother-in-law, Tony Conti, said if that happens, "at least we will have a sense of an answer" for why he died.
