A TEENAGER was killed after standing up to a school bully who tried to push past him in a queue at a bakery, a court heard last Friday (March 13).
Jimmy Mizen, 16, from Lee, bled to death after Jake Fahri threw a 1kg glass tray at him that smashed on impact, severing an artery last May, jurors at the Old Bailey heard.
It was said the St Thomas More schoolboy had refused to let 20-year-old Fahri, his brother Harry's former bully, push past him at the Three Cooks bakery in Burnt Ash Hill.
Prosecuting, Crispin Aylett said it was "a trivial incident that led to a terrible loss of temper".
He added: "If Jimmy had moved to one side, as the defendant had expected him to, he might be alive today.
"On the other hand, good manners cost nothing and the defendant was being rude."
The court heard that Fahri said to 6ft Mr Mizen: "Think you're a big guy? Step outside and I'll show you how big you are."
Fahri challenged Jimmy and his brother Harry to a fight but they refused to follow him outside, it was heard.
He then attacked Jimmy with two plastic bottles of soft drink before the brothers pushed him outside the shop and shut the door.
But moments later, he kicked the door in and threw a 1kg sausage tray at Jimmy, the court heard.
Witnesses said blood spurted out of the teenager's neck "like it was a horror movie".
Moments later, Jimmy's older brother Tommy arrived from the family home in nearby Dallinger Road, Lee, and followed the trail of blood to find him slumped against the door.
He died in his brother's arms within 30 minutes of the attack.
Their mother Margaret arrived at the scene moments later and fainted upon seeing her lifeless son.
When she came around, she called for a priest.
Fahri denies murder claiming he was acting in self defence.
The trial continues.
