Statement by B.P. Brewer on the Passing of Detective Steven McDonald

Detective Steven McDonald was a hero both for his work and his sacrifice as an NYPD officer, and for what he did afterwards. Shot and paralyzed by a 15-year-old boy, Det. McDonald forgave his assailant. He was a passionate voice for reconciliation here and around the world, a champion for Americans who live with disabilities, and a role model for us all.
