It may just be me, but this law sounds barmy to me.

So technically the lad who died is guilty of his own murder.

Barmy indeed.

We have a similar law here, Joint Enterprise, actually not a law per se, more a legal convention but one which has increasingly been used to convict people who were involved in, but not in the usual sense directly responsible for, a death. There's been some highly controversial murder convictions using joint enterprise in recent years.

Yes this is a massive concern in many cases. Some kids getting sent down/to YOIs for just being present. Often the detail isn't explored in the cases, so it's not always clear if the ones present were involved in any way (ie holding someone down, preventing someone from stopping the act, etc.). People are getting convicted when they really shouldn't. Could put them on a path of resentment and disregard for the law in the future. Then again, the prosecution love re-offender cases, as it's easy money to convict again. There was a pretty good documentary centred around the pitfalls (and potential benefits) of JE some time back. Can't remember the name of it. It brought up a scenario whereby one young lad was told if he said he did the offence then the rest would get let off. However, the lad in question was the only one who hadn't actually committed any 'offence'. They weren't interested in that though as they wanted to make an example of 'groups of youths'. The innocent lad refused to admit an offence he played no part in. Verdict: All deemed guilty.

It's a largely shocking convention, purely designed to get youths off the streets. It needs a review and the detail should be explored. Far too many oversights which essentially creates future repeat offenders.

I think that was on a documentary a few years back. The lad thought they were going for a pizza and wasn’t aware they had planned to murder someone IIRC.

Article on the BBC of the secret footballer saying he's terrified of being outed.

I thought everyone knew who it was?

Nope, who is it?

Edit: A brief Google lends me to believe it's Dave Kitson.
