NYPD Officer Stephen McDonald was shot in the neck and paralyzed some 20 years ago while attempting to arrest a trio of bicycle thieves.  He has spent nearly every day since then restricted to a wheel chair.  Today the New York news stations are reporting that his 23 year old son, Conor, will be joining the ranks of the NYPD in honor of his father's gallant service.  Stephen McDonald's grandfather was also a NYPD Officer who was shot in the line of duty in 1936, he also survived.


I would like to offer my support and BEST WISHES to Conor McDonald and the entire McDonald family.  You have made the entire Law Enforcement Community proud of oyu by deciding to follow in your hero father's footsteps.  I wish you Godspeed and a long and fruitful career with the NYPD!

Thanks for News Retleo.


I still remember Officer Mc Donald's case as if it happened yesterday. As I am far from NY now, I usually log in to NY1 News.com to get some of the local news, but I have not for a while...


Thanks and BUMP.

Just to give the brothers here a little background info on PO Steven McDonald:
 
Officer McDonald was shot on the summer of 1986 -if I remember correctly- by a 15 y/o scum bag he was questioning about bicycle’s thefts in Central Park, NYC.
One of the bullet hit Officer McDonald in the spinal cord, leaving him quadriplegic for life…
The young piece of trash served very little time (to the outrage of all of us in NY) and was released…
Thanks God he was shortly thereafter killed in some motorcycle accident, so he couldn’t longer pray on society… Or kill any other Police Officer.
Tragically enough, Father Mychal F. Judge, a FDNY Chaplain who was by his side while he was at Bellevue Hospital, praying for him and was a family friend, was killed on the 9/11 World Trade Center attack…
Retleo… These things bring back memories that make my eyes wet… And I don’t cry easy… Thanks again.
