‘Heroic’ farmer dies in jail after serving just one year of a 24 year sentence for shooting a government tree policeman

A Moree district farmer has told Cairns News other farmers in the north of NSW claimed they wanted to ‘do a job’ on NSW Environment Department tree policeman, Glen Turner, for ‘harassing them to the point of distraction,’ about tree clearing on their freehold properties prior to his death.

Last week the 82 year old farmer convicted of Mr Turner’s murder in July 2014, died in hospital as a result of a heart attack after being rushed from Long Bay Prison where he was serving a 24 year sentence.

This NSW Environment Dept tree policeman Glen Turner, was shot by a distressed wheat farmer for stopping him from clearing regrowth on his wheat farm and threating to prosecute him in 2014

Cairns News, at the time of Mr Turner’s death received several comments from NSW readers claiming that an extremely ‘officious’ Mr Turner ‘ got what he deserved,’ and that Mr Turnbull was a ‘hero.’

Cairns News does not condone the murder of any person, however when a farmer’s livelihood is under threat by unlawful policies of a corporation namely the NSW Government, then Mr Turnbull’s actions could be forgiven by food producers.

The article below was published by Cairns News the day after Mr Turner was shot:

“It had to happen sooner or later. A prying government official was shot dead on private property by an angry landowner yesterday(July 30, 2014) near Moree in the north of New South Wales.

This 79 year old farmer, Ian Turnbull was driven to murder by the UN-driven unlawful vegetation policies of NSW Govt Inc. Mr Turnbull died last week while serving a 24 year sentence.

He was found on farmland assessing the actual number of trees that allegedly had been ‘illegally’ cleared by dryland wheat farmer, Ian Turnbull, aged 79.

The now deceased Environment Department employee, aged 51, had pushed Mr Turnbull too far.

A nearby neighbour told Cairns News soon after the shooting that Ian Turnbull was well respected in the community but had become embroiled in a long-running dispute with the State Government over vegetation management laws.

The neighbour said the elderly farmer “had enough” and was in effect forced into a corner because he was unable to clear his land to protect his livelihood.

Mr Turnbull has been taken into custody by police and will appear in court in September.

This festering sore infecting all farmland in the nation has been allowed to creep through the agricultural industry since former Liberal Prime Minister John Howard forced his Environmental Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 onto the states.

Labor state governments had a ball. They amended their environment acts allowing their socialist regimes to halt forthwith any new agricultural development or vegetation management under the guise of biodiversity protection.

The ALP/Green nexus had a win of nuclear proportions, prosecuting farmers for the most minor infringement of their native vegetation statutes. Their victory in sterilising farmland was delivered to them by a supposedly conservative Liberal National Party Government.

The Queensland socialists had waited for years to take revenge on the National Party’s token squattocracy.

The owner of one of Queensland’s largest family run cattle operations, the late Graham Acton was fined $110,000 for allegedly clearing brigalow regrowth without a permit.

Hundreds of others were mercilessly hounded by ‘compliance officers,’ usually disgraced, former police officers whose bent was to trespass on private land and apply entrapment to catch hapless primary producers whose only indiscretion was to protect their property by clearing regrowth and noxious woody weeds.

Reminiscent of scenes of a Gestapo interrogation in Nazi Germany, a refusal by a landowner or any person present on the property to answer questions from these thugs resulted in immediate arrest and prosecution.

This is the modus operandi of a Labor Government and the dumbed-down city populace of the Sunshine State want to elect another bunch of international socialists?

It should be noted the present Queensland Liberal National Party Government disbanded the ‘tree police’ in 2013.”

  1. JURIES NULLIFY BAD LAWS. The tyranny of being denied this inalienable common law right to trial by jury is the cause of Ian Turnbull’s demise. He die the moment he shot Glen Turner. He returned to his home and said, “Come and get me.” He knew what he did was evil and so does everyone else. Last week’s “Inspector Morse” (a television detective show) ended with a John Thaw saying, “If he was monstrous, he was made monstrous.” All Australians must look at what happened and say, “Why?”. Suicides are equally evil…an evil that has its beginning in wicked legislation that festers and corrupts with enforcement. Ian Turnbull and Glen Turner were only 2 victims. The total body count is far far greater.
    Yours sincerely, John Wilson.
