Thompson had shot and killed one of the best Police officers I ever met, Glenn Arthur McKibbin, on 21 April 1996. Eight days later my brother died. They were both lovely men.
|Constable Glenn Arthur McKibbin.|
After an extensive search, the suspect was located in an orchard in Havelock North. Thompson, a former soldier, was shot in a standoff with Police.
Constable McKibbin left a wife, and a young son, they can be very proud of Glenn McKibbin, he was a fine Police officer and a good, honest and fair man.
The report is embedded below, but is also available at this link.
Rest in peace Glenn McKibbin, a gentleman, a fair and honest man, and the rarest thing, the greatest asset to any society or community - a good cop. Up there with Harry Quin in terms of integrity and honour.
