Why we should give up hunt for Stephen’s killers (Says pal who witnessed the attack) (click for more)
I am very disappointed with the ill-formed comments made by Duwayne Brokes.
TWENTY years ago on Monday, Stephen Lawrence and his best mate Duwayne Brooks ran for their lives from racist yobs — but only Duwayne got away.
He has been haunted by his friend’s murder ever since — but he believes it is time that he, and the rest of Britain, moves on and drops the fight to jail the killers still at large.
Now 38, Duwayne says: “There has to come a time when we draw a line under the events.
“We have to come to a point where we should give up on the Lawrence case. It is only fair.”
Police are still trying to bring three of the A-level pupil’s killers to justice, after finally seeing two of the thugs, Gary Dobson and David Norris, given life sentences for murder in January last year.
Duwayne, now a Lib Dem councillor, was a key witness in the trial, but has begun to fear that the focus on Stephen’s case has left fewer resources for other murder investigations.
His idea that we should give up on bringing murderers to justice because "its only fair" or that "the amount of money which has been spent on the Lawrence case that hasn’t gone into ... other murders, which might have solved” is somehow wrong reflects an ugly politicians attitude that is happy to betray justice for personal gain instead of upholding it.
We should NOT give up the hunt to bring killers to justice no matter what the economic costs. The idea that it is acceptable to put a price on justice is immoral. As we integrate these perverse alien values within our global community this practice continues to lead to the long term deformation of our traditional moral principles.
This is best demonstrated by the ability of sickos like R. Kelly, OJ Simpson and the various footballers involved in 'hazing' underaged girls to pay to avoid justice and still attract public support based on their ethnicity or 'celebrity' status.
