It absolutely sickens me how anybody that kills a young officer in the line of duty or otherwise gets parole they should get the death penalty PERIOD!!!!!!! As the brother of an officer and friend of lost officers families there should be no question about this by the Governor or Mayor of our city. God bless those lost and those on duty.

Remembering Sean. Great Man/Police Officer

I just graduated the NYPD police academy at the time of Police Officer Sean McDonalds senseless murder..We all attended his wake ... I often thought of this young man in my years with the NYPD. This year 2019 I retired , you can’t help “feel wow I made it”.. a bittersweet feeling when you know far too many brother s and sisters didn’t make it...I did 26 years and some odd days all the while mostly in uniform..With that said ...God bless Sean and God bless every man and woman that is willing uphold a solemn oath and to put on a uniform whereby a critical decision is made to stand up against evil and lay his/her life down for a fellow citizen at a moment’s notice.....
