Gary Dobson – could he be innocent

It may surprise people who have read my blogs – but I would describe me as having been a liberal – life and world experiences have since changed my views.

I always believed Gary Dobson and the rest of them to have been guilty – although I never really conciously considered the evidence – I guess I absorbed what I saw and read like osmosis and came to my conclusion – GUILTY.

NOW – I tend to consider what I am told, especially in regards to issues of racism and white persecution, so with this in mind I have been trying to consider the evidence – it is difficult.

Blood splatters on clothing – contamination, video of abusive comments, mothers testimony.

Although I still think he may be guilty, but I no longer know why – I am less sure – which begs the other question - is it possible for these guys to get a fair trial?


  1. Why would a racist gang which was out to get blacks, attack a white guy as well? Why would members of a racist gang even be having the debate heard in surveillance video - Gary Dobson: "Some black people are alright"?. Surely, if he knew he was part of a 'racist' gang, there would be no such debate. Since when, do you need new cutting edge scientific techniques to all of a sudden find a hair on a piece of clothing that couldnt be found 18 years ago?

  2. Hi Alfred - wish I knew more about the case, and many thanks for the points you make - they make me want to know more.
