On Wednesday, the Detroit Police Department reported the loss of one of our men in blue in the line of duty. In a post on Facebook, as you see below, is the announcement of the loss of Officer Rasheen McClain, a 16-year veteran. "A natural leader and a heart," said Detroit Police Chief James Craig.
People who worked with Officer McClain haven't just lost a fellow officer. They have lost someone who brought joy to work as he served the city of Detroit. Co-workers and friends were posting videos on social media trying to make his co-workers smile because that is what he made everyone around him do. "He was a good officer and I am glad he was there to protect us," said Amy Schumont, who says officer McClain is a friend of 20 years.
His partner remains in the hospital, but is expected to survive.
He is leaving behind a wife and two children and we would like to provide them with some financial assistance through this tough time. If you would like to donate to his family, please do so below:
