  1. Though I understand and appreciate the outpouring of attention and compensation through donations, I am very disheartened to see little to no attention and compensation (in the form of a fund) to the innocent victim who’s family suffered the same casualty! What about starting a fund for her funeral expenses! I’m sure the police department -now that has promoted officer chesna to Sergeant has a decent benefit package for (officers killed in the line of duty) I’m sorry that I may offend any person or seem insensitive especially to the Chesna family but it just seems unjust to have so much attention on the officers family loss and give so little to Vera Adams and her family!
