The Remembrance of Stephen Lawrence

Stephen Lawrence was a well mannered adolescent citizen of the UK with a bright future ahead of him. 25 years ago Stephen and his friend Dwayne were waiting at the bus stop for the 122 bus in London. They were interrupted by a gang of Caucasian boys on the other side of the road who shouted out offensive racist words to Stephen and his friend. Stephen then was attacked by the group and stabbed to death with a knife. The close family members and friends battled the police and UK law for justice. The process of the police investigation was full of racial prejudice and inappropriate practice that led to the release of the perpetrators.
