Leading article: Why the heart must not rule

Trial by media is a hackneyed phrase, deployed from time to time to condemn an excess of zeal, usually by the tabloid press. Often, offence has been taken wrongly, but the behaviour of the Daily Mail on Friday in branding five young men as the murderers of Stephen Lawrence, the black A-level student stabbed to death in south London in 1993, is the genuine article. The five have not been convicted of the crime. After a prolonged, if not particularly skilful police investigation, they were charged with various offences relating to Stephen Lawrence's death. They were discharged by the law courts. Last week they chose to remain silent at the Coroner's inquest. They were acting within their rights. None the less, their pictures appeared on the front page of the Daily Mail under the headline "Murderers". Subsequent reports showed frames from police surveillance video footage showing that at least two of the five had a taste for long knives and racial violence, and hatred of black people. That is disquieting, revolting even in this case, but it does not justify condemning them as murderers.
