Russell Field goes on trial

By johnboy - 21 September 2010 11

Back in March last year the double murder in Chisholm caused a considerable kerfuffle.

The ABC now reports that the trial of Russell Field for the double murder of Gregory Peter Carrigan and Richard John Roberts has begun.

The defendant is claiming to have been in fear of his life when the biker and associate interrupted his chicken sandwich.

Just how his self-defence based court defence goes is going to be very interesting.

What’s Your opinion?

Russell said “the first thing that caught his eye was four tear tattoos on Mr Roberts, which he believed indicated he had killed four people” – if Roberts had been to his place before then those paper bags on his hands must have affected his sight as well as his ability to pull the trigger for him not to have noticed the tatts before.

Russell also said “Mr Carrigan and Mr Roberts stormed into his garage in March last year” – so if they stormed into his garage and he panicked and shot them, why were both bodies found outside,one of them on the next property.

“The doctor’s report says after Field shot Mr Carrigan, Mr Roberts said to him “you’ve done it now kid, you’re dead” – what he said that and then turned and ran ???? pffft bull … bull.. cough cough .. gosh this spring flu is bad

I find it interesting that Russell said Roberts had been around his place before and threatened him, doesn’t sound like it was a love triangle.

Russell Field is innocent. There is no way he could have pulled the trigger with those giant paper bags on his hands.

Love it!!

Yup, I reckon he will get of the Judicial system but he may not get off the eye for an eye system……..

A self-defence claim in front of Higgins. The prosecution might as well give up now

I say let him off with a slap on the wrist and give him a gun license.
