    Huge case in the UK. A tip o' the hat to the tabloid Daily Mail for its urging of the pursuit of justice in the case of Stephen Lawrence.

    The Lawrence Case (Wiki)

    Murderers! Gary Dobson and David Norris convicted of Stephen Lawrence race hate killing in a landmark conviction after 19 years
    So....who or what kept this case alive and in the public eye? The Mail, that's who or what.
    Huge article along with many, many pictures, plus links to an abundance of other Mail articles today, at link above.

    Gary Dobson jailed for minimum of 15 years and 2 months and David Norris to 14 years and 3 months for 'terrible and evil crime'

    A public inquiry is to be held, after a different inquiry found the UK's top detectives had spied on the victim's family. This is linked to police corruption.

    The UK's Home Secretary says it is 'profoundly shocking'

    Stephen's mum says it is all 'too late.' Poor, but brave, brave lady. She's never let her boy down.

    Try this link. Guardian's moving at a snail's pace.

    Britain's most wanted arrested:
    Stephen Lawrence murder suspect Jamie Acourt has been arrested at gunpoint in Spain in connection with a £4 million marijuana plot. Armed police swooped on the 41-year-old, who was on the run for two years and on the National Crime Agency's 'most wanted' list, as he left a gym. Acourt was held in Barcelona on Friday following a joint operation involving NCA, Scotland Yard, and Spanish police officers.

    I'm thinking that in cases like this where the suspects evade police for years that when they're finally sentenced they should get the sentence plus however long they evaded arrest/conviction!

    I appreciate this crime happened 25 years ago, but given it's one of Britain's most publicised murders I'm surprised the posts here average one per year!
