On Thursday 22 April 1993, Stephen Lawrence an 18 year old A-Level student, and his friend Duwayne Brooks were making their way home after spending the day together. As the pair rushed to catch a bus in Eltham, a Southeast London suburb, they were confronted by a gang of white youths. These white youths subsequently set upon Stephen and stabbed him. He collapsed just 200 yards away in a pool of blood and died. His death was formally recorded the next morning by Dr Richard Shepard as "haemorrhage resulting from stab wounds."
The police investigation that followed, or rather the lack of it has since been exposed as the most serious of threats to cohesive society today. This rather inept police investigation led to a public inquiry. The Lawrence Public Inquiry chaired by Sir William Macpherson has raised allegations of systematic corruption and institutionalised racism within the British Police. It placed both the police and the Criminal Justice System as a whole on public trial.
