Letter: Condon and the racists

YOUR profile of Metropolitan Police Commissioner Paul Condon (4 October) takes the position that Condon is a decent enough chap beset by a force of many rather less decent people. Unfortunately, even Condon himself has a long way to go before he understands the daily realities of life for those whose policing he is in charge of. He is now on record as saying that even if Stephen Lawrence had been white his murderers would probably have got away. Wrong. If Stephen had been white his racist attackers would not have bothered him at all.
