Inside the mind of the ‘Sons Of God’

They’re the best of the best in Victoria Police, but little is known about them.

The Special Operations Group is the elite squad who’s called in whenever there’s a siege, bomb threat or shooting spree.

He gave a fascinating insight on Tuesday, recalling several incidents – including the moment he helped arrest a “laughing” Martin Bryant after the Port Arthur massacre.

“It’ll stay with me for the rest of my life,” Sierra confessed.

Neil Mitchell: “Were you tempted (to shoot him)?”

Sierra: “We all go through those thought processes but, ultimately, you’re paid to arrest them and put them before the courts.”
