“Mongo’s Stone” here on Church Hill
represents the effort of citizens and
Police Officers working together. It leaves a lasting monument
to the importance
of neighbors and police working together in the fight against
crime. The Stone
was a vital corner stone in the Richmond Turning Basin, which is
just like “Mongo” is no more.
The Church Hill Crime Watch and their friends not only dedicated
to Officer Thomas “Mongo” McMahon but to all of our officers at
the First Precinct.
His twenty years of service to our crime watch and this
will never be forgotten.
To all of you who did not know him, we ask respect, and possibly
your best joke,
for he loved them. We ask most of all your respect for our
officers and what
they try to help us to do in fighting crime.
