On the evening of April 22 1993, 18-year-old aspiring architect Stephen Lawrence was set upon by a pack of white, racist youths as he waited at a bus stop in Eltham, south-east London. At first it seemed the young black man might survive. He managed to break free from his attackers and run a distance of some 222 metres. But then he collapsed bleeding from two fatal stab wounds. The racism was – or should have been – obvious from the start. Before they charged at their prey, the killers had shouted: “what, what n****r?” Read more A mob steeped in violence with extensive links to underworld Among their number was David Norris, later caught by a police surveillance camera fantasising about being able to “skin a black c*** alive”. And Gary Dobson, seen by the same camera strutting about with a huge knife while boasting of … [Read more...] about Stephen Lawrence 25 years on: What happened and was this really a murder that changed a nation?
