A shameless online rant by the racist killer of Stephen Lawrence says he hopes an upcoming inquiry could clear him of the murder.

Following the announcement of an inquiry into the police investigation of Mr Lawrence's death, Gary Dobson posted the vile, rambling message on a Facebook page set up by his sister.

In it, he writes: "Finally the met police look like they are being held responsible for the monumental wrong doing they have orchestrated in this case over the last 21 years.

"The 'evidence' I am sitting in prison for was corrupted and I now hope someone will be held accountable for this.

"The failings in this investigation fall in all directions, NOT ALL IN MY FAVOUR, whenever the surface of this case is scratched more revelations are revealed that bring the whole establishment into question."

Dobson, part of a racist gang who knifed Stephen Lawrence to death in Eltham in 1993, goes on to say he hopes the inquiry will be "life-changing" for him.

Along with David Norris, Dobson was finally convicted of the killing in 2012 thanks to forensic evidence. An appeal against their conviction fell at the first hurdle.

Gary mate, if you really do want to do the right thing, bubble the other three so they can join you and hard man Norris where you all belong.

Makes you think. If there was institutional racism and now brought to the fore, corruption, going on throughout this whole story saga, who's not to say that these guys may not have been stitched up in order to gain closure on the case? Nowadays, you don't know who or what to believe do you?

All I would say is they were hardly ever going to get a fair trial after the media convicted them in the press.

Shameless? Maybe he would be shameless if he was convicted of something he didn't do.

The whole trial was bent from the start. Have you not for one moment thought that if the police were so corrupt (as it has been shown recently) they may just have helped this case along to get a guilty verdict. The forensic evidence has been questioned by experts on numerous occasions.

This trial was just a way for the system to get a guilty verdict to make up for the lack of justice over the last 20 years and it seems that the small matter of whether they got the correct people is just a triviality.
