    With all the anti cop threads heres a pro one!!!!

    This cop arrests his own killer!!!!!!


    NSW officer's final arrest of own murderer - Yahoo!7

    Michael Allan Jacobs has been found guilty of the shooting murder of highway patrolman David Rixon at Tamworth last year.
    It was the last arrest Senior Constable David Rixon would ever make.

    That of his own murderer.

    Despite being mortally wounded, with a bullet in his chest, the father of six managed to bring down Michael Allan Jacobs, partially handcuff him and put his gun away before collapsing to the ground.


    Now Jacobs is facing a mandatory sentence of life imprisonment for murdering a police officer after a jury took less than an hour to reach a guilty verdict in the Supreme Court in Sydney on Monday.

    Flanked by police officers, Sen Const Rixon's widow, Fiona Rixon, wept with joy as the jury handed down its verdict.

    She and her supporters rose to their feet as a mark of respect when the jurors left court for the final time.

    Speaking outside court, an emotional Ms Rixon said her husband deserved the outcome.

    "David was the only man, the only police officer, ever known to arrest his own murderer," she said.

    "That's pretty special."


    Detective Inspector Chris Olen also paid tribute to Sen Const Rixon's "brave and courageous actions".

    "David Rixon himself helped us out greatly, taking on his own attacker and handcuffing him while he was mortally wounded," he said.

    During the month-long trial, harrowing audio evidence of Sen Const Rixon's last moments were played, during which he greeted Jacobs with a cheery, "G'day mate. Just going to breath test you buddy", before a series of shots rang out.

    The Crown alleged Jacobs shot Sen Const Rixon with a .38 revolver, with the bullet travelling through the officer's wrist and into his chest, piercing his heart and lung.

    Sen Const Rixon returned fire, hitting Jacobs in the leg, abdomen and shoulder.

    Jacobs could then be heard screaming, "Die, I'm sorry. Sorry sir, sorry".


    Sen Const Rixon died at the scene while Jacobs later underwent life-saving surgery.

    The Crown alleged Jacobs, a drug addict who had been disqualified from driving, was high on drugs and facing the threat of imprisonment when he was pulled over by Sen Const Rixon at West Tamworth on March 2 last year.

    He denied the charge and instead attempted to pin the blame on his drug dealer, a man called Terrance Price.

    But crown prosecutor Pat Barrett told the jury no evidence linked Price to the scene, while Price himself took the stand and denied being there that day.


    A secretly recorded conversation between Jacobs and his partner Sharon Strudwick was also played in which Jacobs could be heard saying, "I wish I hadn't have had the gun, wish I hadn't have got the s**ts that morning".

    Jacobs, who remained expressionless during much of his trial, did not look at the jury and did not react after the verdict.

    He will face a sentence hearing on August 1.

    Acting NSW Police Commissioner Catherine Burn said this was the first time a police officer's killer would be sentenced under new mandatory sentencing laws.

    "Nothing will change what has happened and the tragic loss that we are feeling."

    She also paid tribute to the fallen officer's family for their "compassion, resilience, strength and grace", and to the people of Tamworth, who lined the streets on the day of Sen Const Rixon's funeral.


    Murdered Senior Constable David Rixon has been farewelled at a funeral in the city of Tamworth, New South Wales.

    Yes, I'm Irish.

    But I live in America, not Ireland. Is that what you mean?

    I believe in guns for self defense. But I also believe you need to be trained on it's safe use. I am not comfortable with people handling guns that don't know how to use them.

    If someone breaks into my home, calling a cop isn't going to help. Defending my home (with a gun if need be) as it is happening is the only real solution.

    Agree but crime should not even be high were people feel they need to be arming them selfs to feel safe. How do you find the transition in culture from ireland to the us?

    I was born in California. I suppose it would be more accurate to say I'm Irish-American. My great grandparents made the transition.

    America can be extremely violent depending on where you live.

    In california:

    East Palo Alto
    Richmond
    Parts of San Pablo
    Parts of Oakland
    Parts of Stockton
    East Los Angeles

    And there are parts that are very safe.

    ^^ Castle Doctrine. A man has a right to protect his castle, home, and guns in self defense fit under that. I own several weapons and I'm trained with many. Ill tell ya, I won't be caught dead without a pistol nearby
