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.

What’s Your opinion?

I’m reading up on this case now, and the lack of substantive information on why Eastman was ultimately convicted does look a bit off. Aside from a Crimes article talking about why the evidence at the trial was disappointing and not concrete the wikipedia entries for both Eastman and Winchester essentially only say that ‘Eastman was convicted of the murder’ and nothing more.

I don’t usually give much weight to conspiracy theories but there really isn’t a good explanation of how Eastman came to be convicted of the murder.

It’s interesting. I heard from an extremely well-placed source that while in remand before his trial for the Winchester murder, some of his fellow inmates and jail staff liked doing this to Eastman, when he got particularly offensive. There was a very successful episode which involved the use of a substantial quantity of pooh (not eastman’s), and a ventilation fan.

I guess it’s where he got the idea from.

(I heard this during the time when he was on remand).

Eastman used to drop into a hotel I worked at in the late 80s every evening to see if we had any newspapers left. We gave him a freebie the first few times as we were about to chuck them out anyway, but one night when he came in and we didn’t have an lefty, he threw a massive wobbly and stormed out, slamming the glass doors and cracking the glass, and kicking crap down the front steps.

He then came in the next night as if nothing had happened, but we refused to give it to him again…he stood at the counter for over an hour, just staring at the staff and making guests feel uncomrfortable. We ended up calling the cops and having him removed, kicking and screaming. About a month later, DepCmr Winchester was killed…

There’s no doubt he’s off his rocker, almost certianly made worse by his current abode, and there’s no doubt he’s a menace to safe and sane thinking. But as one who actually believes in his innocence (of the crime he was convicted for) I find it appalling that he has come to this.

The Winchester atrocity was a professional hit. Far bigger and nastier than anything David could have planned.

Shouldn’t a society be judged by the way it looks after its most vulnerable citizens? He is about as vulnerable as anyone can get. He clearly cant help himself. Doesnt that mean we have an obligation to?

If this Inquiry goes Eastman’s way, he will be re-joining Canberra society, and he’ll be rightly pissed at us all.

I don’t get it… doesn’t he WANT to see this go back to court? didn’t he fight for this inquiry for years?

From what has been told he’s mad as a hatter. Sometime after starting with the public service he went off his rocker, has been ever since. There are some that think that he was framed purely because he was mentally ill and the perfect patsy because of it.

Yeah I’m very well aware of this – it’s just that I’d been under the impression that he was somewhat saner now than during his originally trial, but perhaps that’s not the case.

The people whose job it is to deal with this sorry soul deserve multiple medals.
