Most Vegas Victims Wont See A Dime of $22 Million Raised

The Las Vegas committee overseeing the millions of dollars donated after the mass shooting in October says that more victims will receive help for their medical costs, but many if not most will not see a dime. Steve Sisolak, Clark County Commission Chair has not addressed the issue to anyone’s satisfaction, after hastily raising money without any rules.

Scott Nielson, chairman of the Las Vegas Victims Fund Committee, says the fund has $22 million, but that they just can’t help everyone unfortunately, and will be denying most people.

“It is our desire to recognize and honor all of those whose lives have been forever altered as a result of the horrific events of 1 October and we recognize the incredible needs of those experiencing psychological trauma,” Nielson said in a statement Friday.

Christine Caria who was trampled at the concert and can’t walk because of ligament damage to her legs is being denied funds.  “Last night, I got a really good night’s sleep. But the previous three weeks, I hadn’t,” Caria said. “A lot of it has to do with sleep and nightmares and triggers.” She also is seeing a counselor for post-traumatic stress disorder, but that isn’t covered under the final guidelines established by the committee.
