ANALYSIS – The Metropolitan Police Service did not do their job properly – they failed to act because they did NOT take the murder of a black teenager seriously. In short, they were racist.
One only has to listen to the pain in Doreen Lawrence’s words to understand that.
She also made the point that racist attacks are still occuring today and that police should not use her son’s case as an excuse to move on.
One of the killers had actually attacked a white teenager with a knife before going on to murder Stephen.
That does not mean that this case was not racially motivated.
We all know that this case would never have not got so far, had the middle market Daily Mail not taken its dramatic stand.
Question is – how many more ‘Stephen Lawrences’ are still out there?
