Reflections for Sergeant Lance Allen "Lou" McLean

 

It was an honor to ride for Sgt. Lance McLean in the 2014 Police Unity Tour (chapter 4 - Virginia). Though we had never met, you have truly touched my life.

Deputy Brian Phelps
Onondaga County Sheriff's Office, New York

God Bless you Sir. May the good Lord above cradle you in his arms, and may you Rest in Peace my Brother in Blue. I offer my prayers and sympathies to each and every one of your family members, friends, and co-workers.

To the family and friends of Sgt. Lou McLean and to his fellow officers:

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Sgt. McLean died.

To the McLean family, my heart goes out to all of you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and your strength in your faith. When my son was killed, the entire law enforcement community in our area embraced us in a circle of love and support, and I know you will receive the same support. It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Sgt. McLean gave to his community and the citizens of Texas, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on June 29, 2013.

Lance, I will miss having breakfast with you and discussing Rangers baseball, I will miss you not backing me up as I knew all I had to do was ask. You are an example to the badge. Your family will contiue to be in my families prayers. This criminal act has left a void not only with the Hood County Sheriff's but the Granbury PD as we are such close agencies. I know the God will take care of everything and he is in control. Rest now brother and thank you for the ultimate sacrifice. God bless you and your family

For Sergeant Lance Allen "Lou" McLean:

The law-officer faces many risks and none greater than an individual armed and acting in direct defiance of a court-order and the law. We regret that Lou would be the next law-officer to die hardly without warning at the hands of a deranged, perverted and crazed armed person who would strike suddenly and flee. We are grateful for responding officers who finalized this incident, regretfully after another officer was wounded, by bringing down the perpetrator.
We admire all the courage of those involved in the protection of others and themselves.
We pray for Lou's family, friends, co-workers, the wounded officer involved, and all those who care about them. May they be ready to reach-out to one another in the days ahead.
We are proud to render Sergeant Lance Allen "Lou" McLean, a soldier-of-the-law, a final salute.

Cpl. Ralph D. Fiorenza (Ret.)
Pennsylvania State Police

My heartfelt condolences to Sgt. McLean's Family and two children, his parents and siblings. May you rest in Peace

I have laid down my life in service to all of you.
I have been a part of the fabric that has held the line between your safety and your victimization. I have given my life so that others may live in peace. I have lived my life as a dedicated member of the greatest profession. There is no greater honor.

As I now become a part of the rich history of law enforcement, please remember me always for I have left behind those who loved and depended upon me.
My partners and my agency, please remember my family, their loss, and don’t let time soften your compassion for them.

You guard the gate now and I will continue my watch from above.

MAY YOU REST IN PEACE AND MAY YOUR FAMILY FIND COMFORT IN THE GOOD YOU HAVE DONE HERE ON EARTH.

"The Final Inspection"
The policeman stood and faced his God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining.
Just as brightly as his brass.
"Step forward now, policeman.
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My church have you been true?"
The policeman squared his shoulders and said, "No, Lord, I guess I ain't,
Because those of us who carry badges can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays,
and at times my talk was rough,
and sometimes I've been violent,
Because the streets are awfully tough.
But I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep....
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fear.
If you've a place for me here,
Lord, It needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't.....I'll understand.
There was silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod.
As the policeman waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, policeman,
You've borne your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in hell."
