Here is a quote from the police regarding the murder of Danny O'Shea who had his throat cut after being chased by a gang of black "youths"
"We do not know why such a terrible thing happened, but what we do know is that this is not racially motivated as Danny was a popular boy with friends from all cultural backgrounds".
WOW!! does that mean that if Stephen Lawrence had some white friends his killing wasn't racist either??!!!! Why didn't the BBC tell us?
I apologise, I misread the article, and note that the statement above was made by Danny O'Shea's mother, not by the police. However a police spokes person did state "I wish to reinforce the family's position that there is nothing to suggest Danny's murder is racially motivated." One has to ask whether the police would have been so quick to rule out a racial motive had a black boy been hunted down and had his throat slit by a gang of whites.
