The Injustice of Man... JOINT ENTERPRISE...So you think you are Safe...
Educate yourselves, Educate your children, this could very well affect you
Joint Enterprise an archaic 300 year old English common law.
Imagine being convicted and sentenced to years in prison for a crime you did not commit. Years of your life forever lost and the only thing in your mind while in prison is to clear your name and prove your innocence.

INJUSTICE... UNFORGIVING.. UNCLEAR
This law is very unclear and very unforgiving -
for instance...you don't have to have your hand on the knife to be convicted of murder. If you are with,know or are in the proximatey of the perpetrator you too could be found guilty of the killing.
The law places a heavy burden on young people in groups. Be CAREFUL..
You need to ask yourself constantly who is in a group? COULD THEY be carrying weapons and what might they do with those weapons?
This is referred to in law as Joint Enterprise
It is a very unfair and unjust Law.. there are hundreds of innocent young men and women languishing in our prisons serving very long sometimes LIFE sentences that have been convicted of this crime..
How do i avoid being charged under Joint Enterprise ?
The so called advice the Police give is..
Think about who you are with.. and what they are planning to do.
Know your friends..
Well the last time i checked it is not a normal ability to read someones mind.. so according to the police and the law, we must be able to know exactly what someone is thinking and exactly what someone is going to do.
The police began to use this 300 year old law to clap down on the so called gang crimes, but most people charged under this law are not and have never been members of a so called gang. Most are going about their private daily lives and are not intent on causing disruption, vandalism or MURDER.
The trend adopted by the police at the moment seems to be that the Joint Enterprise law is being extended and applied in such a way that innocent bystanders are being convicted of involvement in serious crimes on totally inadequate evidence.
There are currently approximately 120 people jointly charged with or on trial for murder, the current conviction rate for this crime seems to be aroung 3 out of every 4.
Under this law.. it is UP TO YOU .. TO PROVE YOUR INNOCENCE..
Under this law .. there is NO INNOCENCE UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY.
YOU MAY THINK YOU ARE SAFE.... BUT BEWARE.... THIS COULD HAPPEN TO YOU !!
abolish amend joint enterprise law
The Joint Enterprise law is such an unfair law which creates many miscarriages of justice. This unjust law convicts innocent bystanders of grave crimes such as...

You think you are Safe?
“Joint Enterprise” is the name of a 300-year-old English common law that the police have in recent years re employed to combat the so called gang violence.
Unfortunately all to often the Joint Enterprise law is used when the police cannot prove who the perpetrator of the offence was, it is used all to often against the young of our communities. Since when has it been against the law to be young, or wrong to walk with a friend of two down the road.
You could find yourself in very deep water, just by walking down the road with more than one friend or relative, if your brother cousin uncle or friend happens to get into an altercation with another person, you are there through no fault of your own, thinking that it has nothing to do with you,After all how can you be responsible for someone else's actions or thoughts.
here is an example .. of an incident that actually happened to my son.
You are out driving one evening with a friend, you decide to stop at the off license to buy some beers with the intention of visiting another friend to spend the rest of the night at their flat.You stop outside the off license and your friend goes inside to buy the beers, as it is late there are a few people milling around outside. Your friend has made his purchase and returns to the car, he stops and talks to a couple of the people outside the off license, returning to the car he asks you to please give the two guys he was chatting to a lift as they are going home which is in the same direction as you will be travelling. As you are going there anyway you do not see any harm so agree to give them a lift.
You arrive at the destination, the guys get out of the car and you begin to turn the car around to exit the cul de sac you have dropped them off at, suddenly your friend gets out of the car, you look in your rear view mirror and see the two guys plus one other having an altercation, you stop shout at your friend to get back into the car, you want nothing to do with an altercation all you want to do is get to your destination and chill out for the rest of the night. Your friend gets back inside and you drive away.
A few days later, the word amongst friends and acquittance's is that the police are looking for you and your friend.. !!!!!
Maybe it is a traffic violation, you are not too sure, and not too worried, you know you have done nothing wrong, so decide to get a burger, sit in the park for a while and plan to walk to the police station to find out what is going on... Why do they want you?
You are sitting on a bench in the park when you hear a police helicopter, you look up to see it circling above, you stand to start walking out of the park when you are suddenly surrounded by 6 police officers, they surround and force you onto the ground, you are arrested, taken to the police station and charged with murder.
Why? the guys you gave a lift to pulled out a knife and stabbed a man, the one you saw them have an altercation with. NOW THE INJUSTICE STARTS....
You are told you knew what was going to happen, you are told that you took part, YOU must PROVE your INNOCENCE.
you are taken to Magistrates court where bail is denied because of the seriousness of the charge, you are then taken to prison, where you spend many months very many long months trying to prove your innocence, No one believes you, how can you prove you did not know what was in their mind, how do you prove you are innocent?
You are offered a lesser charge, but that means you have to plead guilty to something you had no part in, but if you do not accept the offer it means you go to Crown Court and risk the rest of your life in prison, You may think to yourselves sitting there reading this, that if you are innocent there is no way you will take a plea bargain, but believe me unless you have experienced life in a class A prison you cannot begin to understand. You are bullied and assaulted by not only older more experienced inmates but also many prison staff take a great deal of pleasure out of playing mind games with prisoners, they are not supposed to of course, but it does go on. They will quite happily delay bringing forms around so that you cannot get clothes from family visits, You will be made to wait to go to the bathroom, on the pretext of some reason or another.Oh you can complain, but it gets you nowhere.The days, weeks and months pass, the longer you are in there the more you lose your identity. You feel depressed, desperate to end the injustice, but there is nothing you can do.Except wait and pray that someone somewhere will listen and believe you.
The prosecution will do all they can to damage you character, police will lose vital statements or evidence, you really are fighting for your life... your right to Freedom and Justice.
Thankfully my sons ordeal ends here, when a vital statement in police hands was found and given as evidence .. my son was found not guilty and released.
For those less fortunate, once the case goes in front of a Jury, you find that the Jury don't take much persuasion, Your life is in the hands of 12 people who do not know one end of the law from the other, they are expected to understand complex laws such as Joint enterprise in 3-4 weeks. They will be persuaded to convict you because, the standard of proof is set terribly low in the Joint Enterprise law.,there is no smoke without fire, the prosecution has done an excellent job of assassinating your character and because they just do not understand the complexities of the Joint Enterprise law.
You find you are convicted and sentenced to a very lengthy custodial sentence, .. Ok, so you think i will appeal., but you cant appeal on the basis of you innocence, because a jury never gets it wrong.The Justice system never like to admit they have made a mistake.The newspapers print that you are a murderer, they will slander your character, but you maintain you innocence, by doing this you stand little chance of getting parole, you must show remorse for your crime, but how can you when you committed NO crime.
You are in a NO WIN situation.
There are other innocent people serving life sentences because they used their mobile at the wrong time, because they were standing outside their property at the wrong moment,or even because they were being a good Samaritan.
This is joint enterprise,
It could never happen to me, that's what you are thinking, but believe me when i say.. think about it , read this and think... how often do you walk outside to enjoy a beautiful day, how often do you use your mobile, How often do you stop to chat with neighbours, friends or family, Do you know a crime will not be committed in your vicinity today?
This law is unjust and needs amending. Until such time.. BE CAREFUL. BE VERY CAREFUL.

The Innocent Victim... of Justice ....
The Innocent Victim... of Justice ....
I stood before judge and jury in court
Not one word of untruth in my conscience was fought
You call yourself justice; well that’s just a sick joke
You denied me my freedom, and stripped me of hope.
Struggling to hide the tears my eyes shed of pain
The heartache you’ve caused, the sorrow the shame.
You would not listen no matter what I had to say,
With head bowed down low you led me away.
You’ve locked me behind bars in a desolate cell
Must I live out my time in this torturous hell?
Did God not hear me when I prayed and still pray?
Is this my fate; is this the price my honesty must pay?
My innocence goes unnoticed, but the truth must be heard
I am an honest man; I spoke not one untrue word.
I am not guilty, I did nothing wrong.
I shall declare this statement, no matter how long.
You have my body, because you believe I did wrong
What you will never have or destroy
is my spirit, because my faith is too strong.
It was not God that did not listen; it was you that was unjust
You put your faith in laws that most do not trust.
I will stand with my head high, my heart filled with pride
For god knows my heart has nothing to hide.
The time will come when someone will listen to me,
When that time comes, I know I shall be free.
There is a moral to the story I tell.
Trust no one but Allah, or you’ll end up in hell.

Prove me Innocent.
A Poem i wrote dedicated to my son... at the time of his great trial...
Alone I sit in Solitude
the questions scattered around
the answers continue to elude
as much as I may search they cannot be found.
With frustration I inwardly cry
How can this be happening,
what crime did I commit?
I am here, but why?
Joint Enterprise, they call it
this law that imprisons me
what did I do I do not understand
I know I should be free.
Why have they done this to me
I am an honest man,
I once believed this life was fair,
now, oppression and injustice is all I see.
What actions did I take,
that led me to this end
giving a helping hand to a brother
I thought of as a friend
open up your heart and listen to the truth
'They' say i knew what was in another mans mind
how ridiculous,of this how can i prove
what evidence is there to find?
So don't believe as I did
that justice is pure and good
for standing in the wrong place
'they' will accuse you of falsehood
'They' stand before me
in their government uniforms
feeling mighty and powerful
believing for that they were born.
'They' try to fill my heart
with sorrow and shame
But i'm an innocent man,
My pride they cannot gain.
Humiliating actions and tormenting Words
my spirit is untouched by their double edged swords.
'They' may have my body but they cannot break my mind
my soul is hidden deeper than they can ever find.
Who is there to listen to us the innocent ones
we are someones daughters and beloved sons.
No-one is interested in our anger and dispair
which is directed at a society that doesnt seem to care.
I am an innocent man
and one day I WILL be free,
I am an innocent man,
what must I do to make them see?
Listen to my plea before its too late
my heart filled with bitterness and twisted with hate.
Mans justice is no justice at all
to the innocent who in the wrong hands do fall.
