Yeah it’s obvious that no one’s to blame (despite the fact that it’s already been determined that they were all unlawfully killed)

So let’s never speak of it again

Duckenfield was absolutely negligent. He lied, he falsified evidence, he wriggled and he cheated the families of the deceased to clear his own name. He deserves to live with his reputation in tatters. Those of us that travelled around South Yorkshire supporting our side during those years know exactly what the police thought of us, and how they treated us with absolute disrespect.

However, Duckenfield wasn't responsible for the deaths of 95 people that day. He didn't commit manslaugher. He was one part of a culture from the government to Sheffield Wednesday, and through to some fans who all had a role. I cannot understand this case at all.

I get that the families want justice but justice came with clearing the deceased's names and apportioning responsibility appropriately. Justice is also in the new stadiums and new laws and new attirudes that eventually followed. Locking up a pathetic excuse for a police officer isn't justice.

No, sorry, that’s shit. Someone made the decision to allocate the (majority) Liverpool fans to the end that was smaller and older.

Duckemfield didn’t kill 96 people, he was a conductor of a broken orchestra, the FA are responsible.

From The Telegraph:

The inquest heard that the ticket allocation for the fateful match had been set at 24,000 for Liverpool fans and 30,000 for the Nottingham Forest supporters, based on the previous year's experience.

Lord Justice Goldring explained that it was recommended that the allocations were switched but the suggestion was rejected by South Yorkshire Police.

He said: "You will hear evidence as to why they did that. It seems they regarded the 1988 arrangement was the best way to manage the arrival of fans while maintaining segregation."

Fair enough but still not his fault on his own?
