Reflections for Police Officer Anthony Oswald McLean

Not a day goes by that I don't think about you. I still work for the NYCHA and still respond to Tilden Houses. I remember talking to you about your upcoming marriage. We lived in the same neighborhood. You were that special person at PSA2 that everyone loved. A plaque hangs on the wall of PSA2. You will never be forgotten. I am a better person for knowing you. Thank You.

A Million Times

A million times we've needed you,
A million times we've cried.
If love alone could've saved you,
You would have never died.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we love you still.
In our hearts you hold a place,
No one else could ever fill.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you didn't go alone.
Part of us went with you,
The day God took you home.

Tony if only I knew what you meant to me before the tragedy that befell you. You were my mentor. I will never forget your laugh. You were a helluva cop and a helluva friend. Your death changed me forever. It took away my innocence. I am a better person, a better police officer for having known you. Forever in your debt, Mike.

Off. McLean,

Your service has not gone unnoticed, and we in blue appreciate your dedication. The fact that you gave your life in service to us, speaks very highly of your moral character.
You are missed. RIP
