|YOU WOULDN’T CALL A COP WHO PUBLICLY FORGAVE THE KID
WHO SHOT AND PARALYZED HIM A “PIG!” BUT SOME HAVE!
|The National Police Defense Foundation denounces members of Congress who supported the displaying in the Capital building of a painting of cops depicted as pigs in the act of shooting African-Americans protesting on the streets of America. NPDF Executive Director Joe Occhipinti was alerted to this public outrage as Congressmen Dana Rohrabacher and Duncan Hunter personally removed the painting on 2 separate occasions, after which the painting was re-hung.||

|NYPD Detective Steven McDonald, who forgave the Harlem kid who shot him 3 times in 1986, was a strong supporter of the Police Foundation since it’s inception 21 years ago. Once confined to a wheelchair, McDonald traveled to Northern Ireland, Bosnia, and Israel, to preach his Gospel of non-violence.
Detective McDonald’s son Conor follows the example of his father and grand-father by risking his life on a daily basis on the streets of America as a Police Officer.
