Panorama Hillsborough - How They Buried the Truth Britain's worst football disaster BBC documentary

A Panorama investigation reveals how police, politicians, lawyers and judges all played a part in burying the truth about Britain's worst football disaster.

Never-before-broadcast footage of the FA Cup semi-final in which 96 Liverpool fans died reveals a catastrophic failure by the emergency services, how lives might have been saved and how subsequent inquiries were misled.

And a former home secretary and former police chiefs are put on the spot about why a succession of official investigations left the truth hidden for a generation.

I can't help myself but I was in similar situation at a concert (there many
people pulled out of the crowd, women fainted), I thought I was going to
die. And still I don't blame the organizer. I blame the people behind me
who were pushing like hell. They could stop outside and at least say
something to the security when it was too crowded inside but no one did
that. I'm not saying Hillsborough is the exact case but still I think the
people who were coming in are guilty too.

I finally got to watching the first half of the Hillsborough documentary
from ESPN, and I must say, out of all sporting incidents that I've seen,
this is by far the most disturbing and sad thing I have witnessed.I had
been in a very little situation like this when I was at a concert and
everyone rushed to the main stage to see the headlining band. I got stuck
between a mass of people and a security wall and literally couldn't move at
all. I was stuck for honestly a half hour at least until i managed to force
my way out of that. To see so many people just stuck in that area, and also
the BLATANTLY AWFUL procedures done by the police to cause this... It truly
breaks my heart. May the 96 that perished RIP, and may the families who
lost their loved ones get retribution on the corrupt bastards and Fucking
Pathetic Cops that caused this and tried to cover it up.

it was so easy to blame Liverpool fans. years of scouse stereotypes on tv
had people believing scousers were scum of the earth. if those stereotypes
were given to blacks, asians or irish there would have been uproar. even
today we hear the same old boring shit about scousers being lazy,
murdering robbing bastards. after over 25 years of watching cctv of
Hillsborough the police have yet to find a single drunk scouser,a single
scouser charging the gates,a single scouser robbing the dead or a single
scouser drunk. yet people still belive the lies!amazing

The establishment can say they're sorry, but saying that dosen't actually

try and tear down the fencing and give innocent football supporters the
kiss of life on the pitch knowing that their superiors was watching it all
on cctv and colluded with the goverment and the media to cover it up, is a
fucking disgrace.

I am a Man United fan and the truth is now coming out about what
happened.The Police were indeed responsible for not doing their jobs
properly,but worse still for covering up their appalling mistakes.And they
should be held to account.And yes it MUST also be said that those who
turned up in their thousands WITHOUT tickets who got in to the ground
because of the Police balls ups are also responsible in my eyes,and let me
make it clear those who died were not guilty for their deaths.Whether or
not the familes will get unlawful killing verdicts at the new inquests I am
not sure of given the verdicts that legally are available to a Coroner,or
whoever is conducting them.

Disgraceful, although being from Northern Ireland I can't say I'm
surprised. The British Government was also responsible for the murder of 13
civil rights protesters (mostly 17 year-olds) in 1972 which they covered up
saying the crowd fired shots at them first. Only recently have we received
an apology from David Cameron and cleared of any fault on our side (it was
proven that not one shot was fired by anyone except the British army). I
hope the 96 Liverpool fans and their families get the justice they deserve!

Americans, will you PLEASE stop commenting on something you know fuck all
about? What is this thing you cunts have with blaming the fans when we KNOW
it was the police's fault? It's been PROVEN. Try watching and comprehending
the entire documentary. I know you'll have to try really hard. I mean there
are no ad breaks every 5 minutes and it's not sensationalised with dramatic
music and "action" but I'm sure if you try you can make it to the end and
have a better understanding of what this was all about. Credit to you for
actually showing a n interest in something that happened outside of the
good old USA though! Normally, you lot don't even realise there is a world
beyond America.

been told about problems at Leppings lane so they went to the grounds
early. The

All it needed was better policing outside the ground and one man giving the
order for the tunnel to be closed to send people into the adjoining pens.
The police had CCTV showing them exactly what was happening. Total, utter
and gross incompetence and negligence. Completely obvious to all decent
people. And the delay over sending in the ambulances turned it into a crime
against humanity.

Mixture of circumstances caused this disaster. Poor policing, Too many
tickets granted for the Leppings Lane end, Idiots turning up without
tickets wanting to gain entry hence forcing the hand of SYP to open gate C.
I fail to believe Hillsborough was the only ground in the country where
something like this could have happened. Fortunately many lessons have been
learned from this day horrendous to think it took lost lives to get there.
What I don't understand is how this can be pinned solely on one entity for
example the police when many normal PCs acted heroically in trying to save
as many lives as possible when given no direction by there superiors...

Police prefered hillsborough because, from their view, it was easy to spot
drunken hooligans from the narrow leppings lane end. FA partly to blame as
fans in 81 and 87 had problems of overcrowding on leppings lane end but FA
failed to act.

Author toy2day1 (4 months)
It is obvious that this disaster was a responsibility of the Police. The
question is: Did they open this door deliberately to create problems (I
don't claim they wanted dead) just to find a reason to blame the Liverpool
fans because of their intractable and rebellious character of scousers, who
historically have been a danger for the establishent? I remind the
situation at Toxteth back in 1981.

The law needs to be changed (they tried almost 20 years ago) so that
freemason police and civil servants are removed from their jobs - and thats
the problem, sacking parasitic bureaucrats is difficult. However, as more
freemasons are exposed (we have all their emails in the cloud) it will
become clear that this is how they passed their mesages between the various
Hillsborough criminals. And how did Bettison become chief cunt of
Merseyside. The man should be serving a long jail term; instead he recieves
a pension, and the police still expect half a million Liverpudlians to
respect them - undereducated fools that they are.
