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.

Speaking as somebody who knew 2 of the victims, and but for a change of job
only 1 month before which kept me away from this game, I'm not one to call
for those who made those fatal decisions to be criminally prosecuted.
However, what they SHOULD be prosecuted for is deliberately changing
evidence in an attempt to change the outcome of official inquiries.
This in my mind amounts to Conspiracy and Perverting the Course of Justice,
and anyone involved should be prosecuted accordingly.

And quite frankly, any social activity which requires half the manpower of
a good sized police force to ensure riiots don't break out is one which
anyone taking their children to needs shooting.

Football is the pastime of mindlessly violent yobs and hooligans. If music
fans ever once behaved like this, every live venue in the UK would be shut
down. But this is just "any other day" stuff for a mob of mud gutted
illiterate ex-cons. The whole bloody game needs shut down if you ask me.

Good quality content! Compliments to BBC!

The most suprising thing here is that this was the first big game of mister
Duckenfield... OFCOURSE you make mistakes if you have to sort things out on
your own when you don't even know what experience is! What the actual f*ck
was the police thinking!? That a man without experience could lead a big
game like this!? Atleast a more experienced man should have been there to
work with him that day (and probably the days before this match aswell).

And even than, a blind cow could see that the side pends were empty in
comparrison to the middle one. And the only way into that pend, was the
tunnel. His brain should have told him to close that f*ckin tunnel. And why
on earth didn't anyone tell him that maybe the tunnel should close? If you
are afraid of your boss, you aren't having a nice working environment

Author rabid rabbitshuggers (26 days)
So, Duckenfield allowed the exit gate to be open, then blamed Liverpool
fans, and the media joined in on shifting the blame to the victims. And the
people responsible for the deaths stayed out of prison.

It's a perfect predecessor to Michael Brown and Eric Garner.

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

The Police in generel weren't to blame. Obviously several highly ranked
officers like duckenfield and the people who warped the statements are.
Also the Sheffield wednesday chairman witnessed a previous event in which
many had broken ribs and arms- he passed this off saying "bollocks, no one
would have died". Add in the fact that the ground did not give the
liverpool fans the larger stands to be in.

I worked in various Merseyrail Maintenance sites from 1980 to 1992. As a
football supporter I got to know the staff in my area well. Throughout this
period, I enjoyed the banter, but, there was always those that left me
greatly concerned. Many Liverpool FC fans openly stated that they went to
matches without tickets and it was clear that this was done on a regular
basis by hundreds of fans each week. One guy told me that he hadn't paid to
get into a match for nearly 3 seasons. This was echoes by many others. They
used their free travel passes to get to games then mobbed the gates and
forced their way in.
Whilst the Police should have controlled the crowds, reacted better and
quicker, no excuses, the prime cause of this disaster was that Liverpool FC
fans went with the sole intention of entering the ground without tickets.
It has been estimated that 11,000 people without tickets forced their way
The problem with many Liverpool FC fans is that they had a culture of
arrogant indifference to what they did. If you want to hear the words from
a selection of Liverpool FC fans I would suggest you take a look at Danny
Dyers "The Real Football Factories" available of Youtube.
The sad fact is that legitimate honest Liverpool FC fans were killed by
people who considered it their given right to terrorize other clubs and
grounds for their own pleasure and profit.

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 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.

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.

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.
