As a member of the public, I believe that justice for Christopher is I'm my best interest. The child who murdered him will one day be an adult and I don't wish to be in a world full of adults, who get away with murder as children, then go on believing they can carry on murdering and getting away with murder all their lives, with no repercussion. In addition, as a mother of black children and a member of the black community, I do not want the continual disregard of the lives black men, women and children to continue. This stance the swp have taken reeks of institutional racism and this has to stop. I question if Christopher had been white and surrounded by black teenagers at the time of this incident, weather the investigation would have been concluded after only 24 hours? Or if the swp would have made more of an effort to interview the remaining teenagers??
I stand with the Kapessa family and I demand JUSTICE for Christopher!

If Christopher was white there would have been a proper investigation into his death. It is time a proper investigation into his death and the police handling of it.

Without being in possession of all the minute details, I would agree this should have gone to court “IN THE PUBLIC INTEREST”

The culprits, and the police must face the consequences of their appalling behaviour.

It’s nothing but horrific that when the murder is of a black youngster it’s not in the public interest that the culprit be prosecuted. One wonders if these decisions would be the same had the person who drowned been a white teenager.
