Every night he was awakened <br /> from sleep by the odor,and he had to take medicine every day as a result.He was concerned that the <br /> trio chain of command for the city had not been followed for accountability, that there had not been <br /> proper oversight of the facility, or there had been negligence. Pfisterer wanted people held <br /> responsible. <br />
