Stuart Lawrence claims Macpherson Inquiry 'hasn't made much difference'

Stuart Lawrence told the Daily Mail that the Macpherson Inquiry has made no difference to police behaviour.

A lot of recommendations were made by the Macpherson Inquiry but it seems that it hasn't made much difference.

I would like to know when things are going to change, when is there going to be a society where you are not pulled over because you are a black guy or a black person driving a particular car.

The decision to stop someone in their car should be based on a sound reason, rather than the colour of your skin.

Mr Lawrence's solicitor Imran Khan told the Daily Mail:

Previously Stuart has not complained or otherwise drawn attention to what has happened to him, but now, when the Metropolitan police seemingly trumpet how things have changed for the better, he has felt the need to take action.He has now instructed me to use the full force of the law.
