Eastman “Tired, Stressed” preparing for murder appeal

By sunshine - 11 July 2009 58

David Eastman has told the ACT Supreme Court he should be moved to a quieter part of the Alexander Maconochie Centre, so he can prepare for another legal fight against his conviction according to the ABC.

    Appearing in the Supreme Court, Eastman says he wants to be moved to one of the prison’s cottages.

    He said the level of noise and disruption in his unit is extremely tiring and stressful and it is interfering with his preparations for an appeal against an earlier judgement not to allow him an inquest into his original conviction.

[ED – Is it really a mad house out there? Or is Eastman once again playing silly buggers with process?]

What’s Your opinion?

For god sake. If he’s moved to softer lodgings over this I’ll have to think about leaving Canberra. This is rediculous.

Sharing a “cottage” with Eastman could be considered “harsh and cruel” punishment for the othr inmates.

Bring back the death penalty, this toss deserves it.

The mayor’s human rights motel is the perfect environment for Eastman in his manic quest to create havoc.

This is just the start.

Pandy asks: So he is buggered?

Quite probably since he’s been in jail for 14 years.

So he is buggered?

Eastman is deadset mad and society is probably better off for him being in the slammer for years. However, having sat through almost all of his trial, I believe he should never have been convicted on the evidence presented. Had he mountd a proper defence (ie; allowed cross-examination of certain key witness and refrained from sacking his legal team at every opportunity)he might not be in the position he’s currently in. Sometimes fools have to be protected from themselves.

Probably Kostka Chute preying to loudly in the next cell.

I cant believe this matter is before the court.

He makes a valid point that combining difficult prisoners and vulnerable prisoners needing protection in one spot is problematic.

The cottages require 5 prisoners to share like a share house. I imagine Eastman could find sharing difficult.

Heaven forbid prison should INCONVENIENCE the convicted killer of a Police boss! He is no doubt playing silly buggers with the process. That, and the cottages are 4.5 star accommodation compared to the 3 star regular cells.

Eastman and the term silly buggers go together no matter what the context.

Lets hope Higgins doesn’t preside on this one………………..

It’s safe to assume that he’s playing silly buggers.
