I am so sorry you came in contact with this horrible man that no one seemed to be able to stop . You sound like you were a wonderful young man and it took this monster killing you and two others to stop him . May you Rest In Peace . I know you were loved by everyone you met and as you are in heaven and this man it rotting in hell thank God .

Thank you Adam for helping, supporting, and keeping are town safe. Your a true soldier! I only lived on Toulon for about 3 years. One night you had stopped me for speeding, I was going about 65 in a 55, was just coming home late from College in Peoria. Well, thanks for stopping me because you probably saved my life. There was a deer that ran out in front of my car about 4 miles later. I know you would've have continued to be an excellent officer and will always be remembered. Thanks for all your help, Adam

I was thinking of you today. One of my coworkers and I are going to see Hero's Behind the Badge and it made think about the tragic day you were killed.

I remember hanging out with you when we were in college and laughing and making fun of the instructors.

Thank you for making the ultimate sacrifice.

To the Streicher Family,

I recently stopped for coffee at a rest area on the Massachusetts Turnpike. My wife and I were driving from Boston to upstate New York to visit our daughter at parent's weekend. While in line I noticed a man wearing a Law Enforcement Memorial hat and my wife and I struck up a conversation. I mentioned the hat assuming that he was probably a police officer. I never expected that he was going to tell me that his 23 year old son is memorialized on "The Wall". Both my wife and I were momentarily speechless as he told us some of the details of his son's death.

I am a 25 year member of the Boston Police Department and, sadly, I have been to Washington DC to witness members of our department inscribed on that Memorial. That being said, as the parent of three children, the oldest of whom is 23, I could not fathom the loss that you must feel on a daily basis.

I felt compelled to write this to let you know that you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. Be it in a big city or a rural town, the east coast or the midwest, people like Adam should never be forgotten. Your son must have been a very special young man.

Hey Brother, I spoke with our mom and dad 05/03/12 after the Police Memorial in Springfield. I wear your bracelet 24/7. You will always be 7433 to me. I have worn it everyday on my vest. Remember our last words on 03/20/02? Parked side by side, "I love ya brother, be safe." and you, "I love you to sis, be safe." I know you are watching over us. I love you Adam-my brother-I am blessed to have such a wonderful friend as you. You will never be forgotten-RIP.

I sit and think of you every March 22nd, as this is a day I will never forget; then today as I was doing my online PSYCH class reading responses/posts, I read a post by a young man that reminded me so VERY MUCH of you; and the times we talked when we all went fishing (You, Chad, Troy, Shawn and I), and when we would talk about those who Protect & Serve. My mind went immediately to you again when reading more responses from those who want to Protect & Serve, some causing me to smile, some causing me to cry, and wanting to pick up the phone and say HEY Streicher---you were RIGHT! Then to remember how darn much you are missed, and aren't here with us in person. YOU are still very much LOVED and MISSED.....

Hey Buddy! I ran into your sister and your parents yesterday at the Memorial. Your family shared your story with me. We had a nice talk and it was good to see your sis is a Hawkeye fan which was great to see. I'm gonna have to work on your Daddy though....heck he's an Illini fan! :) Watch over us brother! Thanks for your sacrifice, you have a strong family and you will never be forgotten.
