Yob Jailed For Life Over Jimmy Mizen Murder

Post  Guest on Sat 28 Mar - 8:15

10:29pm UK, Friday March 27, 2009
A teenage "yob" who killed schoolboy Jimmy Mizen by hurling an oven dish at him in a London bakery has been jailed for life.



The 16-year-old victim bled to death after a one-and-a-half-inch shard of glass cut blood vessels in his neck, in May, 2008.

Jake Fahri, 19, of Lee, south London, admitted throwing the dish but denied murder.

He claimed he was acting in self-defence after a row broke out in the Three Cooks Bakery in Lee - but an Old Bailey jury rejected his version of events.

The verdict sparked an emotional statement from Jimmy's father Barry, 57, outside the court.

He said Britain was rapidly changing from a place of civility and fairness to a "country of anger, of selfishness and of fear".

"It doesn't have to be like this," he said. "Let's together try and stop it."

Detective Chief Inspector Cliff Lyons said: "Jimmy Mizen is an individual that we all aspire to have a son like.

"Jake Fahri is from an entirely different world - a yob, part of society that we all abhor."

Fahri, who was said to have an uncontrollable temper, showed no emotion as he was found guilty of murdering Jimmy the day after his 16th birthday.

He left the dock calling to his weeping mother: "I'll be all right mum, I'll be all right."

The court had heard how blood had squirted from Jimmy's neck and covered the bakery shop like a scene from a horror film.

Jimmy staggered into a back room where, 15 seconds later, his older brother Tommy, 27, found him.

As Jimmy was hit by the glass, Fahri swaggered from the shop with a triumphant grin on his face, according to witnesses.

Fahri, 5ft 7in, had not wanted to lose face after picking a row with 6ft 2in and 14st Jimmy, who friends described as a gentle giant.

Jimmy, who had gone to the shop to buy sausage rolls, had stood his ground when Fahri had rudely demanded he get out of his way.

He was one of nine children in what was described as a loving family.

By contrast, Fahri had taken part in two robberies and one burglary before he was 16.

A few months before attacking Jimmy, he had just finished an 18-month period of supervision for slapping and kicking a girl at a bus stop.

How very sad this young boys life was ended by this bully. I hope he gets his punishment in the hands of the other prisoners.

From what I have read and seen on the news this boy was a pure delight to his family and all who knew him.

Rest in peace now Jimmy, justice has been done x

The parents of Jimmy Mizen are humble and dignified,there is a very thought provoking article in this weeks Big Issue if you get a chance to buy it,it is about 'their' search for forgiveness,a very good read.

Jimmy Mizen was a Millwall fan and will be 'remembered' at this weeks play off final at Wembley.His younger brother has been chosen as Millwalls mascot for the day............
