Because, it ain’t this:
“The use of the joint enterprise principle in this case was extreme and in my view most unjust,” said Michael Birnbaum, QC, who represented the three men. “Here the attackers intended to use only a cricket bat and bottles. It was the victims who seized two large knives.
“But by defining the joint enterprise as being a plan to use ‘whatever weapons came to hand’, the Court of Appeal was able to uphold convictions of four people regardless of whether any of them had actually done anything to assist in the stabbing.”
Having these people behind bars is not in any sense of the term ‘unjust’. Not to the public, anyway.
