Allen Lee Jacobs, police officer, Army veteran murdered

Allen Lee Jacobs

In Greenville, South Carolina, Officer Allen Lee Jacobs was attempting to talk with 17-year-old Deontea Perry Marckey, a known gang member. While Jacobs was walking towards the home, Marckey rounded a corner and shot the officer before he could draw his gun. Marckey then went on the run, finaly calling his mother just before he killed himself to avoid capture.

It turns out that Officer Jacobs was also an Iraq veteran from Fort Bragg, North Carolina, according to Go Heroes;

[Jacob’s friend Lee] Vining and Jacobs met at Fort Bragg while serving in the U.S. Army. Jacobs, who joined the military at 17, was a decorated veteran who fought in the Iraq War.

When Vining and his family transitioned from the military, he said they struggled with finding a place to live. That’s when Jacobs took them in.

“We have four kids and dogs,” Vining said. “He’s one of the few people who offered to take on a large family.”

Jacobs also support the family when Vining was diagnosed with cancer in the military. The two played spades almost every week and Vining said he doesn’t know what he’s going to do without him.

“He’s a father and a husband and a best friend and a spades player,” Vining said. “I mean, he’s my partner in spades, we play almost every week… What do you do now?”

    Rest in peace, Officer. You served in two of the finest professions available; the United States Military and serving your community in Law Enforcement.

    May God move you to a place of honor at His right hand forthwith.

    May God comfort his surviving family and friends.

    Jacobs was married. He and his wife have two boys and a third child, a girl, is due to be born in July. The community is doing what it can to help the Jacobs family and a GoFundMe Page was set up. In one day, it raised more than $56k of its 70k goal.

    And that thing that killed this officer was convicted of strong-armed robbery last year and was sentenced to 10 years in prison. The sentence was suspended, which explains why he was available to murder Jacobs.

    Telling that the little thug tried to act so hard, but the last thing he does is crying for his momma.

    Fuck him. I hope Satan has fun with him.

    RIP, Officer Jacobs.

    “17-year-old Deontea Perry Marckey, a known gang member.”
    Gee whiz with a name like that I almost wonder what his racial makeup is. Black killing white, so the PC left will stay silent.

    “Marckey then went on the run, finaly calling his mother just before he killed himself to avoid capture.”
    He sent himself to hell after murdering that Police Officer, but I’m betting that the PC lefties will still try to blame the punk’s death on LE, nothing is ever those punks’ fault in their world! I also wonder if that “Let ’em loose Bruce’ type of a Judge that gave the little shit a suspended sentence has any conscience at all?

    God rest you Officer Jacobs. God be with your family. Thank you for giving so much to our country and your community.

    I hope the killer is burning in hell. Don’t worry though Deontea, you only have eternity to go yet.

    Today president Obama extended his and the nation’s sympathies to the family of South Carolina shooting victim, Deontea Perry Marckey, 17, the latest in a long line of brutal and senseless police killings…

    While this is certainly tragic, the narrative presented on the circumstances doesn’t seem to quite correct.

    Jacobs and his partner were on patrol when they spotted Mackey on Rebecca Street and pulled over for a field interview, Miller said. The police chief said they weren’t trying to serve a warrant as he had earlier stated.

    But Mackey instead ran, leading officers on a foot chase that snaked through woods and behind houses.

    Jacobs, Miller said, was “quite fit and quite fast” and kept pace with the suspect. About 20 seconds after the chase was called in on police radio, a second report came of shots fired.

    Eleven seconds later, as Jacobs rounded a house near the intersection of Ackley Road, his partner radioed in, saying an officer was down.

    Jacobs was struck multiple times, despite wearing a bulletproof vest.


    The suspect kept running for about a half mile, crossing onto Baxter Street toward a spur to the Swamp Rabbit Trail. Two officers were there waiting. Cornered, Miller said officers saw the suspect call his mother before taking his own life.

    This was an active chase of a suspect, not a walking event. There was no warrant being served either. It was simply a Terry stop that went horribly wrong.

    It should also be noted that the guy who shot the officer was really a good kid. (sarcasm)

    One of the women, Stephanie Lowden, said her son grew up playing with the suspect.

    “He was a good child. He was really kind of quiet. He was a quiet kid. But they always bothered him, the police, and say he was in a gang,” Lowden said.

      Yep. He’s real quiet now. I’m sure his mamma is proud of her little punk-ass coward.

      Maybe soon we’ll hear some bogus CPO of a soon-to-be-disbarred lawyer accuse that PD of “driving an innocent youth to self-murder”…

    Rest Well

    Thank You, for your sacrifice

    God Bless the family

    And may Satan Himself, serve Deontea (how DO you pronounce that name?) his very own personal pineapple. Fronds first. In the ass.

  11. Jarhead says:

    To the Jacobs family I extend my condolences and regret that this man gave his life trying to protect Americans at home where the enemy neither knows or shows respect for others. May the man rest in peace and know he served his country admirably.
    As for his killer, thanks you to you and yours for not causing more lead to be wasted disposing of trash like you. Another absentee father likely lost an unclaimed son. All while you tell us “Black lives matter.” Good fathers set good examples.
