  • Hillsborough

    Ninety-six football fans who died as a result of a crush in the 1989 Hillsborough disaster were unlawfully killed, the inquests have concluded.
    The jury found match commander Ch Supt David Duckenfield was "responsible for manslaughter by gross negligence" due to a breach of his duty of care.
    Police errors also added to a dangerous situation at the FA Cup semi-final.
    The prime minister said the inquests had provided "official confirmation" fans were "utterly blameless".
    After a 27-year campaign by victims' families, the behaviour of Liverpool fans was exonerated.
    The jury found they did not contribute to the danger unfolding at the turnstiles at the Leppings Lane end of Sheffield Wednesday's ground on 15 April 1989
    .

    About time. Now if they could only get charges laid against some of those involved over the cover ups and the lies as well as the scum at the Sun we would be moving in an even better decision. South Yorkshire police - a seriously dodgy outfit.

    Condolences and congratulations to the bereaved.

    Is this the same incident were the Sun publicly blamed the fans, though it later turned out they were innocent and just victims, or am I thinking of something else?
    Reaction to the 2016 Munich shootings:
    Europe: "We are shocked and support you in these harsh times, we stand by you."
    USA: "We will check people from Germany extra-hard and it is your own damn fault for being so stupid."

      That is the one - they claimed fans urinated on the police as they tried to help victims, stole from the dead and were drunk who helped cause the disaster.

        Plod fd up then covered up, and now the truth is out. As a lifelong Wednesdayite I'm glad the Liverpool fans have finally been vindicated.

                Looks like Inspector Morse was right - bloody Freemasons in the police force...
                Freemasonry has been linked to allegations of a police cover-up concerning the Hillsborough disaster, as a decades-long battle for justice for the families of 96 people who died that fateful day rolls on. Freemasons’ power and influence in Britain and allegations that Scotland Yard ran a “black propaganda unit” are being probed by two separate criminal inquiries due to come to a close by the end of 2016.

                  There was a human stampede, which was caused by the attitude of the supporters, not by the police . If supporters are behave themselves as they should do, there would be no problems .

                      So where is the evidence that Freemasons covered up? A Russian site that is forever spewing out unsubstantiated accusations. This and MH17 are fine examples.

                      Apart from that. Though football fans will be football fans and act stupid at times, they do not deserve to die going to a match. Those who died deserve the findings of the courts and now perhaps the relatives can find closure.

                        Oh. I'm sorry. How foolish of me citing a Russian site regurgitating information already being presented in British newspapers.
                        An investigation has been launched into whether the secretive Freemasons held too much sway over police decisions at the time of the Hillsborough disaster. The fresh inquests into the disaster heard Chief Superintendent David Duckenfield had been a Freemason since 1975. He was made a ‘worshipful master’ – head of his local lodge – in 1990, one year after the 1989 tragedy. He was also promoted within South Yorkshire Police in the weeks before the disaster, but he told the inquest he did not know if his membership of the Freemasons had influenced this. ‘I would hope not,’ he said. Jurors heard Duckenfield’s predecessor Brian Mole, who is now dead, was also a member of the same masonic lodge.

                        Masons colluded, Hillsborough court told
                        Senior South Yorkshire police officers who were freemasons orchestrated a “masonic conspiracy” to shift the blame after the Hillsborough disaster in 1989, the inquests into the deaths of the 96 victims have been told. Maxwell Groome, a constable at the time, said that after the disaster at the FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest at Sheffield Wednesday’s football ground, “the word” inside the force was that freemason officers held a meeting to blame superintendent Roger Marshall.
                        Groome said he heard that the meeting took place in portable cabins at South Yorkshire police’s area office, and was attended by Chief superintendent David Duckenfield, who had commanded the match.

                          Can't say I agree with the verdict of unlawful killing though. It's not as if the deaths could have been expected simply because nothing like that had ever happened before (perhaps surprisingly).

                            If supporters would behave themselves,there would be no need for the police .

                            When I was going to a match, there was no police and people were behaving themselves .

                              It was forseeable Gooner. In terms of incidents resulting in deaths the UK had the example of the 1971 Ibrox deaths & deaths at rock concerts - the most recent just a year before Hillsborough.

                              The ground itself had already come close to killing people in 1981. Ironically, the result was the splitting up of the terraces into pens, which exacerbated the crush in 1989. There had been less serious incidents since 1981, but nothing was done. This could have been easily avoided and the authorities knew enough about the risks to do so. Charges should be laid, but they won't be.

                              Anyway, enough of that. This verdict is great news for the families who have fought so hard for justice in the face of lies, coverup indifference & outright hostility. Justice delayed is better than no justice at all.
