Dobson and Norris are white

On 22 January 2012, following the conviction, 19 years on, of Gary Dobson and David Norris for the 'racially motivated' murder of Stephen Lawrence, the video below was uploaded to YouTube by 'SpookyXL5.'

This foreword accompanied the video:
"The recent convictions in the Stephen Lawrence trial have caused some controversy. It seems no effort will be spared to bring the killers to justice. However, some serious questions need to be asked of media coverage of the case. Was a fair trial even possible, given the level of frenzied media reporting?

Newspapers have jeopardised the outcome of trial proceedings before. And it is becoming increasingly obvious that editors shrink from covering violent crimes by ethnics because of fears of accusations of racism.

The suggestion is the huge media attention was accorded the case simply because Gary Dobson and David Norris were white."

On 4 January 2012, Dobson was sentenced to serve a minimum of 15 years and two months in prison.

Norris was jailed for 14 years three months.
