English Summary:

Let Him Have It is a 1991 British drama film directed by Peter Medak and starring Christopher Eccleston, Paul Reynolds, Tom Courtenay and Tom Bell. The film is based on the true story of Derek Bentley. Derek Bentley (Eccleston) is an illiterate, epileptic young adult with developmental disabilities who falls into a gang led by a younger teenager named Christopher Craig (Reynolds). During the course of the robbery of a warehouse in Croydon, in which Bentley is encouraged to participate by Craig, the two become trapped by the police. Officers order Craig to put down his gun. Bentley, who by this time has already been arrested, shouts "Let him have it, Chris" – whether he means the phrase literally ("Let him have the gun") or figuratively ("Open fire!") is unclear. Craig fires, killing one officer and wounding another. Because he is a minor, Craig is given a prison sentence for the crime. Meanwhile, Bentley is sentenced to death under the English common law principle of joint enterprise, on the basis that his statement to Craig was an instigation to shoot.

 

Hungarian Summary:

Az ötvenes évek elején járunk, a háború utáni Angliában. Két fiatal betör egy épületbe. Chris Craig, a fiatalabb, pisztolyt hord magánál.. Nincs szerencséjűk. Rendőr áll eléjük, s kéri a fegyvert. Az idősebb, a lassú eszű Derek Bentley odaszól neki: "add neki, ami kell". A srác lövöldözni kezd. Egy rendőr meghal. Az ezt követő büntetőügy az egyik legnagyobb port felvert tárgyalás volt Anglia történetében, s végleg megingatta a brit közvélemény hitét a halálbüntetésben, amit bő évtized múltán meg is szüntettek. Derek Bentley szellemileg erősen visszamaradott volt, már a gyengeelméjűség határán, ami önmagában is büntethetőséget kizáró ok. Nem ő lőtt, nem is volt nála fegyver, s amit mondott, ugyanúgy értelmezhető csillapításként, mint felbújtásként. A gyilkos azonban még csak 16 éves volt, így halálbüntetéssel nem sújtható, s kellett helyette valaki, aki elviszi a balhét. Derek Bentley ideális bűnbak volt. Az igazság malmai ezúttal gyorsan őröltek. A gyilkosság 1952. november 2-án történt. A tárgyalás 1952. december 9. és 11 között zajlott. Derek Bentleyt bűnösnek találták, kötél általi halálra ítélték, és 1953. január 28-án felakasztották. Kevés lélek volt olyan ártatlan, mint az övé.
