PBA PRESIDENT PAT LYNCH ON STEVEN McDONALD

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said: 

“Steven McDonald was the most courageous and forgiving man I have ever known.  Despite the tremendous pain in his life, both physical and emotional, his concern for his fellow police officers and for the people of New York City never wavered.  Since that fateful day in 1986, Steven dedicated his life to fighting hate and encouraging forgiveness through his actions.  He was a powerful force for all that is good and is an inspiration to all of us.  His, was a life well lived.  We join his family, a true New York City police family, his friends and fellow officers in prayer and mourning the loss of a truly special man.  He was a true American hero.”
