….. for JUSTICE AT LAST!

Today saw two years of painstaking, heart-breaking, gut-wrenching deliberation come to an end, with the announcement of the verdicts of the Hillsborough Tragedy Inquests.

It was a clean sweep. A total, across the board whitewash.

Fans exonerated.

Police, SWFC, Eastwood & Partners, and South Yorkshire Metropolitan Ambulance Service all found at negligent fault.

And, most importantly, the South Yorkshire Mass Murderers (thanks, Manic Street Preachers!) aka South Yorkshire Police found guilty of UNLAWFUL KILLING!

It’s been a long time coming, but finally, no-one can protest the truth.

RIP96. Love to allthe families.

YNWA. Always. J4T96-GBNF

Reading on the news as we speak… I am so happy with this and the Truth has always been there since then beginning. The families can now celebrate and live in peace with remembrance of the 96.

A day of mixed feelings, it took so long for the obvious to be read out and finally it has. RIP96

A great day for the families of the victims, tinged with sadness as well of course. We all knew the truth but now it’s official and let’s hope the courts come down on those responsible like a tonne of bricks.

I’ve been watching the coverage all day and it feels rather surreal really, the day we’ve all been wishing would come, for decades, has finally arrived – total vindication in the eyes of the law. After all the setbacks I know there was a nervousness in the minds of many that there might be a kick in the teeth from somewhere, even at this late stage. Because of this I think the verdicts were met with relief as much as gladness. Apart from the families and survivors, who have been nothing short of superhuman throughout this whole process, we shouldn’t forget the pivotal role the jurors have played. The nine jurors have lived the Hillsborough disaster for two years, the longest duration of any inquest, and the graphic evidence and sense of responsibility must have been traumatic in its own right. What is galling, though, is the fact that South Yorkshire Police have denied responsibility right up to the last minute. The lawyer for the force was still arguing during the inquiry that drunken, ticketless fans were a factor in the disaster despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary. Given the verdicts reached, and the sheer mass of evidence gathered,… Read more »

I was happy mainly for the family’s who lost someone, and also for those who survived, but also sad, sad that it took so long to bring these lies and accusations to justice, and now we have the former editor of the sun making his growling apology for the printing of those false accusations, the police now apologising, it has taken twent six years to get this verdict, and those who were negligent that day have been able to continue their life, caring they lies until now, may God forgive them, because I can’t find it in me to, YNWA 96

The truth has been known for many years but the official recognition only came yesterday. Any feeling of satisfaction has to be muted by the fact that it has taken so long and many of those bereaved did not live to see this vindication. Much as I would like to see those responsible for the criminal negligence prosecuted I would get even greater satisfaction from the prosecution of those involved in the cover up, as such acts undermine our confidence in those who are supposed to serve us.
