In an interview, however he defines himself stating "No, I said this: That in areas of this country where the government has proven its--either its inability or its unwillingness to protect the lives and property of our people, then it’s only fair to expect us to do whatever is necessary to protect ourselves".

Nevertheless, it is with great hope that my message is understood, that there will be a laugh or two and maybe even tears.

Of course, things didn’t always go smoothly for Russel especially because he was trying to run a business whilst studying at University. “I promised my father before he died that I would gain a qualification so every day I would wake up and manage the business then I would rush to University and then I’d go to the library, it wasn’t like today where you could find everything on the internet, no, I would have to stay there until 9:30,” he says.
