Taylor Swift Donates Concert Tickets to a Police Department in Mourning

Massachusetts mayor thanked the singer for making the gesture after an officer was killed in the line of duty

Musician Taylor Swift tried to ease the suffering of a Massachusetts police department in mourning recently by donating tickets to a live performance.

Weymouth Sgt. Michael Chesna was shot and killed on July 15 while investigating a car crash.

The suspect is also accused of a killing a bystander named Vera Adams.

Weymouth Mayor Robert Hedlund told The Patriot Ledger, according to WESH, that Swift donated a “significant number” of tickets to her concert this weekend in Foxborough.

Hedlund said there were enough tickets to send to “every police officer, firefighter and extended family to the concert, and then some.”

Leftover tickets were distributed to nearby police departments.

In a culture in which most celebrities prefer politics above charity — along with leveraging their positions to insult those who disagree with them — Swift has shown us some of the good that a celebrity can do when focused toward positive thinking.
