David Eastman has reportedly covered himself in poo…

By Barcham 31 May 2013 68

David Eastman has managed to avoid his judicial inquiry since last year by sacking his legal council. Earlier this month his attempts to have Justin Kevin Duggan, the head of the inquiry sacked were thrown out.

It seems he is running out of stalling tactics.

So Eastman has allegedly staged a dirty protest.

A dirty protest is a protest where you use your own poo.

Yup.

Reportedly Eastman has covered himself in his excrement, wearing his feces like justice proof armour.

It is understood that Eastman, who is regarded by correctional authorities as a management challenge, has used this form of protest before in response to changes in his jail routine.

After a previous “bronzing up” incident Eastman was told he would be fined by prison management, to which he allegedly responded: “I will run out of money before I run out of sh*t”.

A spokesman for the ACT’s Justice and Community Safety directorate (JACS) said it did not discuss “the individual circumstances of detainees”.

“If a detainee wishes to raise any concerns whilst in custody, we encourage them to express these through the existing complaints management process, which includes access to various statutory authorities, such as the Official Visitor and the Human Rights Commission,” the spokesman said.

460cixy asks if there is any ‘proof’ of thousands of assaults. Even though I didn’t make that claim, on reflection I think Evan James is probably on the money numbers wise. ‘Proof’ generally only comes after a court case. In Eastman’s case we’ve had one (several actually) of them and even then, the Canberra Times and a hundred limp-wristed, pillow sucking bleeding hearts continue pushing the ‘..but what if he’s really innocent and the CIA did it..’ line.

Given that the definition of assault includes an intentional action taken to put a person in fear of being injured I would say Eastman would be good for not less than one per day right up until he went inside, and quite a few more afterwards. Most people that he threatened in the street, or their shops, or offices, or Taxis, or even the brothel where people took cash to be nice to him, just copped it on the chin, sucked it up and got on with their life.

Just because it didn’t make the Canberra Times doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. Common assault is one of the most under-reported crimes. I personally had to drag Eastman off a goal nurse. The poor bloke begged us not to charge Eastman as they couldn’t cope with the thought of being personally cross examined by him in court for an eventual concurrent penalty. (EG: Whats Life plus three months worth?).

I realise this is somewhat petty and may cause a bit of controversy but I don’t like using the word GAOL because it looks too much like GOAL and some inadvertently spell it that way as well. Besides both the Macquarie Dictionary and the Oxford English Dictionary list JAIL as the primary spelling.

The Macquarie Dictionary says this:

Usage: In general the spelling of this word has shifted in Australian English from gaol to jail. However, gaol remains fossilised in the names of jails, as Parramatta Gaol, and in some government usage.

So rioters fell free to call it JAIL and ignore the trolls 🙂

And I will feel free have a hissy fit and think anyone who writes jail is an idiot. It drives me crazy like people who say ‘anythink’ or ‘somethink’.

If he committed these hundreds of assaults & crimes why wasn’t he locked up long before he had a chance to allegedly murder a high ranking policeman?

His friends in the ANU law school had for some years amused themselves by helping him to find loopholes in the law, a favourite was getting magistrates to disqualify themselves from hearing his cases. He went through quite a number of the judiciary this way. He found myriad ways to delay cases, and every day he was out and about, hurting and scaring people.

When he punched a guy I worked with (Eastman had an interview booked with him, and when the guy indcated a chair and invited him to take a seat, Eastman punched him), the police who attended mentioned that he currently had 160 separate cases pending against him. These were just those that had made it to the court list, there were umpteen that never did. And I don’t think any of thsee were ever actually heard anyway.

As the police escorted him out after this particular episode, he bent towards the heavily pregnant lady who’d called the police, and hissed that he’d “get” her too. She was a mess for the rest of the day and had to be driven home.

Our legal system does not deal well with mentally ill people, and we all suffer for it.

As far as the mentally ill are concerned,for as long as I can remember at least,the gummint has shown utter contempt for their welfare and essentially left many of them to their own devices for it was just in the too hard basket.It’s only in recent times that they’ve started to take mental health seriously and needless to say we’ve got a long way to go before we get a satisfactory mental health system.

You appear to forget where we live.

I’ll give you a hint. The ACT….

Yet another reminder of the punishment one can receive for a truly sickening attack and the value judges here place on human life we have this
