I wish to send my condolences to the family and friends of Shawna. I worked with Shawna for many years and have many memories of our times together. Shawna pepper sprayed me more than any other officer we worked with while subdueing combative inmates. I havn't been in touch with her for some time now, but have often thought of her and wished her well.
