Let Him Have It DVD
Two teenagers are surprised by police during a break-in. One epileptic with the mental age of 11 and IQ of 66 is arrested, the other, a gun-toting hood refuses to give up his weapon. Shouting Let Him Have It! to his friend, he fires, wounding one officer and killing another. Both boys face the death penalty. Did the boy mean shoot him or give him the gun? On 28 January, 1953, Derek Bentley was hanged for murder at Wandsworth Prison.The verdict and the sentence passed upon the young Derek Bentley (Christopher Eccleston) proved to be as controversial as the crime. Both the verdict and the sentence were subsequently quashed, triggering much debate about Capital Punishment. The words on Bentley's gravestone say: Derek William Bentley - A victim of British justice? This is the story of the case that shocked the nation!
