Being There

If you put yourself at a place and time, and something happens, are you complicit in the events that follow?

Re: Being There

Not quite sure what this question means but I'll take it as presented. My answer is... not necessarily. For me it's about your intentions and reasons for being in that place at that time. An easy example is a bank robbery. It occurs in your own suburban branch at 11.30 am. Your have placed yourself there in that branch at that exact time to innocently carry out your banking - yes you like to do it in the old fashioned way - with a real person. Then the bank is robbed and you with other are told to eat carpet with a shottie pointed at you. Are you complicit in this crime?..Of course not. Are you talking about guilt by association?

I would not have thought so, only the perpetrator is responsible for
their actions as we all are for our own actions.

The circumstances spitfire were?

Re: Being There

You know the perp but were you in any way involved in the offence?..Did you help plan it?..was it your idea?...Just because you know the perp it still doesn't mean you are complicit. But if you knew it was going to happen and you did nothing to stop it, then you are tacitly enabling the offence. Then you may be complicit. You need to tell us the details. Who can give a proper answer without them.?

Re: Being There

Possibly.
It depends on the circumstances.
The Law relating to Joint Enterprise is complex to interpret and some cases where people have been convicted of crimes they took no actual part in but were complicit under the law of joint enterprise have been very controversial.
