    £100,000 and an apology for poor treatment from institutionally racist police

    The Guardian today reports that Duwayne Brooks has received a payout of £100,000 and an apology from police, following very bad treatment by the police after Stephen Lawrence's murder. Mr Brooks was Stephen's best friend, and did not deserve the terrible treatment dished out to him by the police:

    The two friends, then both 18, were at a bus stop in Eltham, south-east London, when they were set upon by a gang of white youths. Mr Brooks phoned the emergency services as Lawrence was knifed to death. But he claimed officers regarded him as a suspect rather than a victim and witness, dismissing his account of the murder, described by Lord Bingham as the "most notorious racist killing our country has ever known".
