Video: Crowdfunding for Critically Injured Police Officer Surpasses Goal
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – An overwhelming show of support for an injured Atlantic City policeman continues to grow as donations are being crowdfunded online. The GoFundMe page was set up by a local businessman in support of the officer and his family. A crowdfunding page, titled "This Blue Life Matters," was set up in the officer's name on Sunday with a fundraising campaign objective of $50,000. The goal was already reached on Tuesday and is still gaining support in donations. 29-year-old Joshlee Vadell, a nine-year veteran of the force, remains in critical but stable condition after being shot early morning on September 4th when he and his partner were breaking up an attempted robbery. One suspect was killed and two others were charged in the incident. For more information on how to donate, you can go visit the site and support officer Vadell and his family.
