Happy New Year to all...




Terrance Bowman-Taylor - He asks you read his story

For over three years Mr. Terrance Taylor #0539901 has been removed from Death Row housing and continuously denied constitutional medical care and kept on Unit 1 M-Con indefinitely. Terrance has not been sent to the neuro-surgeon even though numerous requests have been made. He wrote to the NC Medical Board, but they said that it didn't appear that Dr. Lightsey has violated the Medical Practice Act.

Mr. Taylor went to the dentist again for his teeth and gums that have been giving him problems and the dentist referred him to a specialist, but visits to any specialist for any reason has been repeatedly denied.

Terrance received an ultrasound on his Thyroid gland on 10-15-10 and a blood test on 10-17-10. Dr. Lightsey has said that he believes that Terrance has Graves Disease but yet he is still refusing to treat him for such. Instead the nurse tried to give him ear drops when he didn't complain of having any type of ear trouble. The test on Terrance's Thyroid has shown that the Thyroid is not functioning properly and that there may be cancer in the gland. Mr. Taylor's family has tried and is still trying to get a copy of these medical documents, but they are not releasing these to them. They have sought help and are asking for any help that can be given. How can the doctor prescribe medication without treating a patient or sending them for treatment?

No one has addressed the issue of Terrance's spinal injuries and other health problems. Recently Mr. Taylor was deemed, by the doctor, to be physically unable to operate a broom or mop because of his spinal and other orthopedic injuries. Help is still being denied for these problems.
Mr. Taylor reports that he is failing in health and has been told that "he is on death row and nothing will be done for him." This not only violates the US Constitution, but morality and decency. A human being is suffering and the suffering extends to the family and their fight to get health care for a very ill loved one.

Recently, his family contacted Mr. Lee. He is the director of health for the prison. He said that since "Mr. Taylor is residing in "unit 1, maximum control" he will "not" be given the appropriate needed treatments” and if they didn’t like how things are done they are to contact Dr. Paula Smith.

We are requesting your intervention to insure that the State of North Carolina does not continue to subject Mr. Taylor to what constitutes cruel and unusual punishment and serves no penological purpose whatsoever.

Sister’s Kidney Donation Part of Miss. Parole

Miss. Gov. Haley Barbour Suspends Life Sentences of Sisters on the Condition That One Sister Donates a Kidney to the Other

JACKSON, Miss. — For 16 years, sisters Jamie and Gladys Scott have shared a life behind bars for their part in an $11 armed robbery. To share freedom, they must also share a kidney.
Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour suspended the sisters’ life sentences on Wednesday, but 36-year-old Gladys Scott’s release is contingent on her giving a kidney to Jamie, her 38-year-old sister, who requires daily dialysis.
The sisters were convicted in 1994 of leading two men into an ambush in central Mississippi the year before. Three teenagers hit each man in the head with a shotgun and took their wallets — making off with only $11, court records said.
Jamie and Gladys Scott were each convicted of two counts of armed robbery and sentenced to two life sentences.
“I think it’s a victory,” said the sisters’ attorney, Chokwe Lumumba. “I talked to Gladys and she’s elated about the news. I’m sure Jamie is, too.”
Civil rights advocates have for years called for their release, saying the sentences were excessive. Those demands gained traction when Barbour asked the Mississippi Parole Board to take another look at the case.
The Scott sisters are eligible for parole in 2014, but Barbour said prison officials no longer think they are a threat to society and Jamie’s medical condition is costing the state a lot of money.
Lumumba said he has no problem with the governor requiring Gladys to offer up her organ because “Gladys actually volunteered that as part of her petition.”
Lumumba said it’s not clear what caused the kidney failure, but it’s likely a combination of different illnesses over the years.
Barbour spokesman Dan Turner told The Associated Press that Jamie Scott was released because she needs the transplant. He said Gladys Scott will be released if she agrees to donate her kidney because of the significant risk and recovery time.
“She wanted to do it,” Turner said. “That wasn’t something we introduced.”
Barbour is a Republican in his second term who has been mentioned as a possible presidential contender in 2012. He said the parole board agreed with the indefinite suspension of their sentences, which is different from a pardon or commutation because it comes with conditions.
An “indefinite suspension of sentence” can be reversed if the conditions are not followed, but those requirements are usually things like meeting with a parole officer.
The Scott sisters have received significant public support from advocacy groups, including the NAACP, which called for their release. Hundreds of people marched through downtown Jackson from the state capital to the governor’s mansion in September, chanting in unison that the women should be freed.
Still, their release won’t be immediate.
Mississippi Department of Corrections Commissioner Chris Epps said late Wednesday that he had not received the order. He also said the women want to live with relatives in Florida, which requires approval from officials in that state.
In general, that process takes 45 days.
Mississippi NAACP President Derrick Johnson said the Scott sisters’ release will be “a great victory for the state of Mississippi for two individuals who received an excessive sentence” and he has no problem with the kidney donation requirement because Gladys Scott volunteered.
“I think it’s encouraging that she’s willing to share a kidney so her sister can have a better quality life,” Johnson said.
National NAACP President and CEO Benjamin Todd Jealous said the pardon represents the good that can come with the power of governors to commute sentences.
The organization worked to try to persuade Barbour who ended up agreeing that the sisters “did not deserve to spend one more day in prison,” Jealous said.
“It’s again proof that when people get engaged, keep the faith, we can win,” Jealous said.
Barbour has used his power sparingly to free prisoners over the years, but some of his decisions have created a backlash.
Barbour outraged the family and friends of Jean Elizabeth Gillies, a University of Mississippi student who was raped, sodomized and strangled in 1986, when he granted a suspended sentence for her killer, Douglas Hodgkin.
He also angered others by granting a similar release to Michael Graham, who was serving a life sentence for murdering his ex-wife in 1989.
Both men had worked as prison trusties — prisoners who earn privileges through good behavior — at the governor’s mansion, a tradition in Mississippi that dates back generations. Mississippi governors have often granted the trusties early releases.

Gov. Barbour: Scott sisters' sentences to be suspended


Two Scott County sisters whose incarceration has drawn national attention will be released from prison, according to a statement from Gov. Haley Barbour this afternoon.

Barbour announced he is suspending the sentences indefinitely for Gladys and Jamie Scott.
The two sisters already have served nearly 20 years for an armed robbery that netted $11.

Barbour Said In The Release:

"Today, I have issued two orders indefinitely suspending the sentences of Jamie and Gladys Scott. In 1994, a Scott County jury convicted the sisters of armed robbery and imposed two life sentences for the crime. Their convictions and their sentences were affirmed by the Mississippi Court of Appeals in 1996.

“To date, the sisters have served 16 years of their sentences and are eligible for parole in 2014. Jamie Scott requires regular dialysis, and her sister has offered to donate one of her kidneys to her. The Mississippi Department of Corrections believes the sisters no longer pose a threat to society. Their incarceration is no longer necessary for public safety or rehabilitation, and Jamie Scott’s medical condition creates a substantial cost to the State of Mississippi.

“The Mississippi Parole Board reviewed the sisters’ request for a pardon and recommended that I neither pardon them, nor commute their sentence. At my request, the Parole Board subsequently reviewed whether the sisters should be granted an indefinite suspension of sentence, which is tantamount to parole, and have concurred with my decision to suspend their sentences indefinitely."

Universal acceptance.

I received this by e-mail and have to share, it is so very true.

I am a mother of three (ages 14, 12, 3) and have recently completed my college degree.
The last class I had to take was Sociology.
The teacher was absolutely inspiring with the qualities that I wish every human being had been graced with.
Her last project of the term was called, 'Smile.'
The class was asked to go out and smile at three people and document their reactions..
I am a very friendly person and always smile at everyone and say hello anyway. So, I thought this would be a piece of cake,


Soon after we were assigned the project, my husband, youngest son, and I went out to McDonald's one crisp March morning.
It was just our way of sharing special playtime with our son.
We were standing in line, waiting to be served, when all of a sudden everyone around us began to back away, and then
even my husband did.

I did not move an inch... an overwhelming feeling of panic welled up inside of me as I turned to see why they had moved.
As I turned around I smelled a horrible 'dirty body' smell, and there standing behind me were two poor homeless men.
As I looked down at the short gentleman, close to me, he was 'smiling'
His beautiful sky blue eyes were full of God's Light as he searched for acceptance.
He said, 'Good day' as he counted the few coins he had been clutching..
The second man fumbled with his hands as he stood behind his friend. I realized the second man was mentally challenged and the blue-eyed gentleman was his salvation.....

I held my tears as I stood there with them.

The young lady at the counter asked him what they wanted.

He said, 'Coffee is all Miss' because that was all they could afford.. (If they wanted to sit in the restaurant and warm up, they had to buy something.. He just wanted to be warm).
Then I really felt it - the compulsion was so great I almost reached out and embraced the little man with the blue eyes.
That is when I noticed all eyes in the restaurant were set on me, judging my every action.

I smiled and asked the young lady behind the counter to give me two more breakfast meals on a separate tray.
I then walked around the corner to the table that the men had chosen as a resting spot. I put the tray on the table and laid my hand on the blue-eyed gentleman's cold hand.
He looked up at me, with tears in his eyes, and said, 'Thank you.'
I leaned over, began to pat his hand and said, 'I did not do this for you. God is here working through me to give you hope.'

I started to cry as I walked away to join my husband and son. When I sat down my husband smiled at me and said, 'That is why God gave you to me, Honey, to give me hope..'
We held hands for a moment and at that time, we knew that only because of the Grace that we had been given were we able to give.

We are not church goers, but we are believers..... 
That day showed me the pure Light of God's sweet love.
I returned to college, on the last evening of class, with this story in hand.
I turned in 'my project' and the instructor read it.

Then she looked up at me and said, 'Can I share this?'
I slowly nodded as she got the attention of the class.
She began to read and that is when I knew that we as human beings and being part of God share this need to heal people and to be healed.

In my own way I had touched the people at McDonald's, my son,the instructor, and every soul that shared the classroom on the last night I spent as a college student.

I graduated with one of the biggest lessons I would ever learn:


Much love and compassion is sent to each and every person who may read this and learn how to

Wikileaks - Bradley Manning

We have all heard of the Wikileaks case, it is headline news all over the place. One young man called Bradley Manning has been accused of leaking all the documents from Operation Iraq Liberation, the last decade of the decades long Afghan War, Collateral Murder and the US State Department’s memos that has gotten all that trouble. 

He’s been in solitary confinement since May 2010. 
His mother is forbidden access to him. 
He faces 50+ years in prison. 

This message is from the person who asked me to post this: 

Find out more about Bradley 

We Stand with Bradley Manning 
We stand for truth, for government transparency, and for an end to our tax-dollars funding endless occupation abroad... 

Please show Bradley he is not alone. 

There is a FB cause for Bradley, please consider joining and showing your support.

The case of Fredrick Bell - Mississippi death row.


In May 1991 a young man named Fredrick Bell was convicted of the capital murder of store clerk Albert Bell. This is fact, however the arrest, trial and conviction of Fredrick Bell, verges on the ridiculous. Fredrick's time on death row at Parchman prison is insane, and he is now days away from execution.

Fredrick Bell maintained all through his arrest, trial, conviction and beyond that he was not even in the state of Mississippi at the time of this crime. There is another involved, a man named Anthony Doss. Anthony admits to killing Bert Bell, and he too is on death row in Mississippi. 

Fredrick Bell had gone to Memphis Tennessee long before the murder that took Bert Bell's life. Fredrick maintains there is video footage showing him in Tennessee at the time of the murder, and the states star witness, an man named Frank Coffey who at trial said Fredrick was there has since recanted this testimony. After the murder Fredrick Bell was still in Memphis, he was extradited from there to stand trial. There is another witness who backs Fredrick's claim fully who lives in Memphis and did at the time this crime occurred, yet he was excluded from giving evidence at Fredrick's trial, even stopped from presenting a sworn affidavit! There are two businessmen who were also prepared to swear affidavits, they too were prohibited from doing so. These men saw Fredrick in their premises at the day and time of Bert Bell's death, so why were they excluded from the proceedings?

Fredrick Bell was proclaimed indigent, so was given a state appointed public defender. It is well known and documented, these people are usually badly under experienced, highly overworked, and quite often will never have defended in a murder case, much less a capital murder case. This was how it was for Fredrick. His court appointed lawyer did not fight to have these vital witness', he did not ask for any DNA or fingerprint testing, he did not investigate the video tapes that would have offered concrete proof Fredrick was not at the scene, not even in the state. Fredrick Bell  has maintained all these years that a member of the victims family served as a juror at his trial. It is vital at this point to say Fredrick Bell and Albert Bell were not in anyway related. The voir dire from Fredrick's case shows clear evidence that jurors the prosecutor wanted ended up on the jury that convicted Fredrick. The ineffectual council that Fredrick had, offered little if any resistance to the choice of jurors.

The trial was a foregone conclusion for many who listened to the proceedings. Fredrick Bell was previously known to the Police department, and they wanted him off the streets. They got their way! There was no justice at Fredrick's trial, it was nothing more than a rubber stamp of the prosecutors wishes. Fredrick Bell, a young black man, tried in a highly racially divided state, with an almost completely white jury. 

As was expected, Fredrick was found guilty and sentenced to death. Anthony Doss received the same sentence. Both were moved to death row to begin their appeals. 

This year saw real movement in these cases. Anthony Doss who admitted to killing Bert Bell, is to receive a new sentencing phase in his case, which could see his sentence reduced to life in prison. Fredrick ran out of appeals and the AG Jim Hood requested an execution date for 12/29/10 While in prison Fredrick has gone for very long periods of time with no legal representation. Appeal dates have come and gone, and Judges have refused to extend time lines. These appeals were not filed due to Fredrick not having a lawyer to file them! We must ask why the Judges in these appeals denied the request for extensions, when an inmate condemned to death has no lawyer? 

Finally Fredrick was given a new lawyer, but with the missing of many appeal dates it was always going to be an uphill struggle. Fredrick demanded that certain items in his case be DNA and fingerprinted. These items include a cash register, a potato chip packet and beer bottle. The Innocence project in Mississippi took up this case but in an unofficial capacity. The reason for this has never been explained. The Innocence project began to look for the items that Fredrick asked to be tested. Suddenly it became clear, these items were gone, vanished! With that they could not be tested. The video's that show Fredrick was in Memphis have never been asked for! Affidavits that have been offered by people in Memphis, have never been taken! 

Fredrick Bell will never see 2011 if Mississippi have their way, yet the injustice and holes in this case are staggering.

Fredrick was convicted under the felony murder law.
The evidence in this case is lost.
Witness' that could give Fredrick a solid alibi, ignored.
Video tapes and affidavits that could show innocence - not collected
A condemned man with huge gaps of no legal representation.
A possible tainted jury, if a victims family member did serve.

This is not the 1800's this is 2010 and this case is real! Fredrick Bell has been moved to an observation cell, so he can be monitored more closely, ready for his move to the death house. This is all happening NOW!

Fredrick Bell is a father, a son, a brother, uncle, and friend to many. In a few days he will be DEAD... Killed by the state of Mississippi, under it's version of justice.

We MUST save Fredrick's life. You can help by signing the clemency petition at:

Rodney Gray - Mississippi death row

Rodney Gray - Mississippi death row.
I have been asked to post this on the web page, and am happy to help. If you have any information, or can help in any way, please e-mail and we will pass along your details - thank you.
 I'm reaching out to ask for as much assistance as I can get to save Mr.Rodney Gray's life. After reading these facts you will agree there are many unanswered questions regarding his case. There was the lack of valuable testing, and investigation. There are so many facts that where never brought up due to poor representation. A insurance lawyer is who he had to represent him in his trial. 
Nothing about his case was ever handled fairly.

1) They never even looked at any one else as a possible suspect even though the victim had individuals close to her that were no where to be found the day of the crime.
2) Small spot of blood on Mr. Gray's shirt was never DNA tested.
3) Mr. Gray was held for seven months before being charged with a crime.
4) While incarcerated in Newton County jail the FBI had him moved to another facility due to racial motivated tension by Sheriffs Dept employees.
5) The bank teller testified she opened a new pack of 100.00 dollar bills. The bills the victim with drew from the bank were never checked versus serial numbers of bills Mr. Gray had in his possession.
6) The one black juror was the Deputy Sheriff Mark Evans brother.
7) Gloves that were found were never DNA tested. Seeing the perpetrator would have sweat ed inside them since the crime occurred in August.
8) Dr Haynes was the medical examiner in his case.
9) Jury was made up of 11 white 1 black when the county population is 3,688. Blacks making up 54.6% of the population in Newton County
10) Was not given a juror of his peers. The one black juror had learning disabilities, as well as slept threw most of the trial.
11) Was never given a change of venue when requested.
12) Jail house snitch Cleveland McCall had an incestuous relationship with the Newton County Sheriff Dept in exchange for favorable testimony 13) Finger prints found in the victims car did not match Rodney's or the victim.They also did no further testing to see who they may match.
14) Witness testified they saw victim fighting with a black man in car that had long hair. Mr. Gray had his hair cut in jail four days before the crime occurred.
15) Police did two separate searches of home. One without owner present to consent.
16) Mr Gray's shirt an boots were anonymously found outside when other resident in the home said he never left the home with anything.
17) Post Convicition pushed many cases threw without the proper work or filings done on them. There is a lawsuit filed to put these cases back to Post Convicition, but if not heard in time Rodney may never get the justice he deserves.
18) Mr. Haynes the medical examiner testified the victim was rapped, but no DNA was found on the victim.

I hope you all see the many discrepancies with this case, and the desperate need for help to save his life.
How many innocent men have been put to death who never had the chance to clear their names, and in death never will? The justice department has reported that black men are six times more likely to be imprisoned than whites. Blacks make up 45% of the jail and prison population, yet, when you understand that blacks only make up 12% of the total U.S. population you realize that something is dead wrong with this system.
Thank you on behalf of Mr.Rodney Gray, and his entire family.

Miss. Supreme Court sets deadline for Bell to oppose execution date motion

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi death row inmate Frederick Bell has been given until Friday to respond to the state's motion for the setting of an execution date.

Attorney General Jim Hood petitioned the Mississippi Supreme Court this past week to set Bell's execution for Dec. 29.

Hood's motion came after the U.S. Supreme Court on Nov. 29 declined to hear appeal from Bell.

Bell, now 39, was convicted in 1993 and sentenced to death.

Bell and Anthony Joe Doss were convicted of killing Bert Bell, no relation, on May 6, 1991, during an armed robbery of Sparks Stop-N-Shop in Grenada County.

Doss also was sentenced to death.

Clemency for Fredrick Bell - English/French/German versions

Fredrick Bell was convicted of capital murder for the death of Albert Bell (no relation) at a convenience store in Mississippi. Fredrick has always maintained he was in Memphis Tennessee at the critical time, as well as for a good while before the critical time, and beyond. He claims that the real killer Anthony Doss, who incidentally is also on Death Row convicted of the same crime, killed Mr. Bell and then was coerced by the Police and Prosecutor to 'finger' Freddie in the crime.
People who offered to attend court on Freddie's behalf or sign affidavits were excluded, as was crucial evidence that would have shown Freddie was out of state. Freddie has always maintained there was a victims family member on the jury at his trial, hardly unbiased and impartial!
Evidence in this case that was to be DNA tested, such as a beer bottle and cash register, suddenly vanished once people began to look for it. How can vital evidence in a capital case just vanish? There is a human being's life at stake.
Anthony Doss the self confessed killer of Mr. Bell is to be given a new re-sentencing hearing. How can the killer have a new penalty phase that could see him sentenced to life, while Freddie Bell dies?
Freddie Bell has an execution date set for December 29th 2010. We are asking you to sign this petition for clemency from Governor Barbour. Freddie deserves a new trial at worst, freedom now at best, not death. 


Clemency for Fredrick Bell

We the undersigned ask that you grant clemency to Fredrick Bell. Mr. Bell is due to die in the execution chamber at Parchman prison December 29th 2010.
For much of the time Fredrick languished on death row he had no legal representation. Dates for filing appeals came and went with no appeal filed, as Fredrick had no lawyer.
Fredrick has maintained all along he was in Memphis Tennessee at the time of the murder of Mr. Albert Bell (no relation) and for a considerable time preceding this crime, and following it. He has made repeated claims that there are video tapes that show him to be in Memphis, yet none of these claims have been followed up. Mr. Bell has also repeatedly asked for certain items to be DNA and fingerprint tested. He claims if these tests are done, they will show he was not at the murder scene. Yet suddenly these items have vanished, so cannot be tested.
Mr. Anthony Doss the self confessed killer of Mr. Albert Bell, is also on death row in Parchman, yet is to be given a new penalty phase, which could see the real killer given life, while Mr. Fredrick Bell who has maintained he played no part in this crime dead! Sir, we can see no justice in this case at all.
Mr.Bell is a father, a son, a brother, uncle, cousin, friend. He is loved by many people. We ask that while there is such uncertainty in this case, you grant clemency and demand a thorough and untainted investigation. Once Mr Fredrick Bell is dead, there is no second chances, the death penalty is irrevocable.

Joint Enterprise - the lazy law that sends innocent people to prison for 20-30 years

Joint Enterprise
December 2002: a Renault Megane stops outside a nightclub in a busy Sheffield street, a sawn off shotgun pokes out of a window and both barrels are discharged at the doorman, Gerald Smith, killing him. The police trace phone calls made in the area at the time of the shooting to people from Nottingham. The Megane is found burnt out in Derbyshire, and the owner arrested on suspicion of murder. She names two men who, she said, borrowed it, and she is released without charge. At least twelve people are arrested: two admit they were at the burning of Megane and name others who were present, and they are released without charge. Nine others are charged and admit nothing. “In a case that made legal history, all were convicted because they clung to a gangland code of silence...” reports the Sun on 7 July 2004. The police do not know who pulled the trigger.
On what evidence were the nine convicted? Just the Megane owner’s statement, and cell site analysis, which claims to pinpoint the spot where mobile phones were used. It linked particular handsets to the crime scene and the burning of the Megane. The crime scene link was based on calls routed via a single mast six kilometres away and, of course, no one knows what was said in the calls.
One of the phones was, by the time of the investigation three months later, already in the possession of the police. They had arrested Craig Brooks a month after the shooting, for a driving offence, and found the phone on him. He said it wasn’t his, but had been left in his car by someone else.
This sort of evidence normally provides grounds for suspicion – reasons to interview people who could be involved in the crime. But when some of the suspects denied involvement in the crime, provided alibis and said they were 30 miles away at the time, wouldn’t the police need more evidence in order to charge them? Apparently not. There wasn’t any other evidence.
The Megane owner made her statement under threat of being charged with murder, and when she did not appear at the trial, the police claimed they could not find her. Judge Richard Wakerley decided she did not attend because she had been threatened on behalf of a defendant, and his decision was based solely on his personal assessment of the ‘demeanour’ of this defendant in the dock: a man who is tall, well-built and black. This judgment permitted the introduction of hearsay evidence, the witness statement made under pressure – as the only evidence against this defendant.
We say this is a lazy law because it’s easy for the police to solve murders when the only evidence they need is mobile phone use or witness statements made by people trawled in with the other suspects – witnesses against whom there is evidence at least as strong as that against the people who are put on trial. And it’s easy for prosecutors, because just one of these tenuous strands of evidence is used to prove everything necessary to secure a murder conviction.
Joint enterprise law permits murder convictions without proof of intent (the mens rea or guilty mind required as an element of most other crimes). All that’s required is ‘foresight’ that the actual perpetrator may kill or cause serious injury. How does mobile phone use prove foresight? Because it shows that those who make the calls are members of the same ‘gang’. And if the defendant is a member of the ‘gang’ then he or she must know that the perpetrator may kill someone.
And how do we know that a criminal gang exists? Because the police say so, and no one challenges them – because the defence case for any particular defendant is that he or she is not part of a gang: the police’s claim that a gang exists goes unchallenged.
But, as judges always say to juries, proof of presence at the scene is not enough. For involvement in the crime, the defendant must have also encouraged the perpetrator. How might encouragement have been given? By being present at the scene; or by being part of the gang; perhaps by communicating by mobile phone (and so a defendant need not even be present at a crime scene in order to encourage the perpetrator – we know of several people convicted on such evidence, like Wesley Porter from Liverpool).
Such loose social connections as phone calls or sharing the same vehicle provide all the evidence needed to send someone to prison for decades. The police don’t need to gather any further evidence essential for solving a murder without joint enterprise, such as scientific or eyewitness evidence, or evidence of motive. They don’t need to prove who the perpetrator was. Sometimes they freely admit they none of the people on trial have been proved to assault anyone.
Mere grounds for suspicion have become evidence. This is why this lazy law has become so popular with police, prosecutors and judges. Since 2008, more than 350 defendants have been prosecuted in just 116 murder cases (BBC News), in many cases through use of evidence like that used in the Sheffield case.
Now suppose, in this case, you had not just one strand of evidence, but three: phone evidence showing someone was present at the scene, the evidence of one witness that he borrowed the Megane, and the evidence of a separate witness that he burnt the car after the murder. Against just one of the nine defendants, Leon Bryan, there were all three pieces of evidence – and Bryan was in fact responsible for the murder. After the trial, he admitted shooting the victim, and added that he knew that at least four other defendants were not present at the scene. Both Bryan and his victim were drug dealers, said to be engaged in a personal dispute which did not involve some, perhaps none, of the other defendants.
Joint enterprise is a legal doctrine dating back over 300 years. But it’s only in the last 10-15 years that it’s been developed into its present form, as common law, which is decided by judges (and never debated publicly or by parliament). The judges have developed this law in reaction to a panic created by the police and the media about supposed ‘wolf pack killings’ by ‘gangs’ of young people (according to former Metropolitan Police Commissioner Ian Blair, speaking on BBC Radio 4, 8 September 2010). Forget the research which tells us: ‘in some cases [police] intelligence reports create a cycle of misinformation causing gangs to be created by police that may not actually exist.’
‘Don’t worry about sending people to prison for murders they did not commit: What you've got to decide is not “Does the system lead to people being wrongly convicted?” I think the real question is, “Do you want a law as draconian as our law is, which says juries can convict even if you are quite a peripheral member of the gang which killed?”’ said Tony Blair’s Lord Chancellor, Lord Falconer (Radio 4, 8 September 2010). Falconer favours the draconian law.
Joint Enterprise: Not Guilty by Association (JENGbA) aims to change the law so that it cannot be used to convict people of crimes they have not committed; have the cases of all those, who claim to be innocent and were convicted through use of this law, reviewed and the changed law applied to them.
JENGbA has secured independent funding to campaign in support of those believed to be wrongly convicted and to change the law, by stimulating a properly informed public debate on this issue. Its Patron is Cracker and Brookside scriptwriter Jimmy McGovern.
