A BLACK murder victim’s family received 18 years of an unremitting police investigation into their son’s murder because the killers were presumed to be White.
Millions of media words were readily made available to the British public in reporting the Stephen Lawrence case since his 1993 stabbing death.
Mainstream media has essentially made a martyr out of the Black victim in this case, while White British murder victims killed by Black and Asian minorities are deemed not worthy of wide publicity.
Violent crimes, including murders instigated by racial minorities towards Whites are simply not given enough national exposure, but they may receive 18 seconds of local coverage.
This entire Stephen Lawrence saga has not only cost police careers, but also concluded that London’s Metropolitan police force was “institutionally racist” as stated by the infamous Macpherson Report.
Long standing British Laws that stood the test of time for hundreds of years were changed when it was recommended the double jeopardy rule be abrogated in murder cases to allow a retrial upon “new and compelling evidence“. Incredibly, that became law in 2005.
A “honey pot” in the name of the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust was also established for purposes of fund-raising, but no link will be provided here.
In total, the media frenzy helped propel this case to stratospheric levels of publicity and cost taxpayers tens of millions of British pounds over the years.
The Stephen Lawrence case is so well-known that his name has become a British household word since those early days in 1993, and whose body was transported and buried in Jamaica!
