Hillsborough

Well, after 23 years it finally comes out. The police and services lied to cover their own backs and blame it on someone else. So much for upholding the laws of the land. Should all be locked up themselves.  :evil:

And, one of the many questions is, why didn't the Taylor report etc reveal this?

I think the Taylor report was restricted in it's scope so that all the incriminating stuff was never considered. The inquests didn't consider anything that happened after 3:15pm, all victims were deemed dead by then, but there was evidence that some died on the pitch after that because only one ambulance was let in. As well as the mismanagement of the crowd coming into the stadium, the police stood and watched as people were crushed against the fences inside the ground. The reactions were too slow and too little. Most of the scenes in the ground I remember were of fans trying to help each other (witness the amount of people who were hauled up into the top deck of the stand by others). Many more would have died if it weren't for the fan's themselves. Then we had the absolute bile spread by the Sun newspaper. It's good that it's come out, but it's shameful that it's taken so long, and so many people have actively tried to hide the truth.
