    Hillsborough Jury Reaches Decisions On Deaths

    The Hillsborough inquests jury has reached decisions on all questions related to the deaths of 96 football fans.

    Jurors have crucially reached a decision on the one question they had not been able to agree on - whether the fans were unlawfully killed.

    Last week they indicated they were unable to reach a unanimous verdict, but the coroner said today he would accept a majority verdict.

    The jury has indicated that at least seven of the nine members agree.

    Question six asks: "Are you satisfied, so that you are sure, that those who died in the disaster were unlawfully killed?"

    The decisions will be announced after 11am tomorrow (26 April) so that all the families are able to make it to the Warrington courtroom.

    The two-year inquest into the 1989 tragedy has been the longest jury hearing in British legal history, with more than 800 witnesses giving evidence.

    Fourteen questions were put to the jury, and they must also record the time and cause of death for each of the Liverpool fans who died.

    The questions include whether failings by Sheffield Wednesday FC or the behaviour of fans contributed to the "dangerous situation" at Hillsborough.

    The jury will also answer on the actions of South Yorkshire Ambulance Service and South Yorkshire Police and whether any "error of omission ... caused or contributed to the loss of lives".

    The fans died at the FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest - held at Sheffield Wednesday's stadium - on 15 April 1989.

    Thousands were crushed after police gave an order to open a gate, allowing more supporters into the already crowded fenced-in terraces.

    During the inquest, family members delivered emotional tributes to the victims in the form of personal portraits.

    The original inquest verdict of accidental death was quashed in 2012 after evidence suggested more lives might have been saved had the emergency response been more effective.

    27 years later and the verdict is still being decided?

    The old bill looked after Maggie during the miners strikes and they called their cards in after Hillsborough.

    Yes of course. They had to wait until anyone who could be held accountable had retired and got their pensions.

    'YOU'LL NEVER WALK ALONE'

    Families of the victims killed in the Hillsborough disaster have paid a moving tribute to the 96 fans who died, breaking into a spontaneous chorus of ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’.

    Campaigners and families assembled outside the inquest in Warrington on Tuesday to sing the emotional rendition of the Liverpool FC anthem after a jury decided the football fans were “unlawfully killed”.

    They stood waving scarves and some holding pictures of their children, who were crushed to death at Sheffield Wednesday’s ground 27 years ago.

    After the song, there were chants of “Justice for the 96”, marking a turning point in the long-fought campaign by families for the truth about how their loved ones died and who was to blame.

    The inquest jury of six women and three men delivered their verdicts just after 11am on Tuesday, almost 30 years after the stadium crush, concluding the longest jury proceedings in English legal history and coming after a protracted battle for justice.

    The jury, sitting in Warrington, Cheshire, found police planning errors ‘caused or contributed’ to the dangerous situation that developed on the day of the disaster.

    Famous footballers, pundits and Liverpudlians paid tribute to the Hillsborough victims.

    Liverpool fans were responsible for the Heysel Stadium clusterfuck though just a few years earlier.

    very true.

    However, the Hillsborough tragedy was made significantly bad by the white and black square brigade pretending to be policemen and the sun and times pretending to be journalism focused news papers.

    I'm not with the Scousers, here, sorry.

    It's just a settlement process to allow bigger payments to close it out. The verdict was ridiculous on numerous levels, a total miscarriage of justice for political reasons.

    The families get more money. Scousers feel good. Case closed. No truths involved...
    How do I post these pictures???

    They really want a criminal prosecution to be won, but that is unlikely to happen. The truth though is out there, and as often is the case is a mix of the two versions of events. The Scousers were pushing up, crushing people towards gate C. Inexperienced copper in charge decided he had to open Gate C to stop people dying, did so, and scousers pushed through into the pig pens that soccer louts get caged in, and promptly killed 96 people.

    Coppers blamed the scousers to get out of trouble, and the scousers blamed the cops to alleviate their guilt that is actually their actions in pushing that killed people.

    Just goes to show what my dad always said was right- you can not trust a copper or a scouser.

    ^^ reasonable comment.

    But look at the answers to the inquest questions; Scousers and their actions were not to blame while everybody else was - just not true.'

    I've been in similar situations at a similar time, and if I'd fallen with the pressure of the crowd surging then... It was a reaction to crowd violence and containment of that time (Millwall riots, Liverpool crowd criminality around Europe, ICF, etc). It has all been taken out of context and lied about.

    But, yes, the police made errors and then lied. &, yes the match should have been put back, timewise. But, the Scousers shouldn't have come with bent tickets in massively oversubscribed numbers, rushing through gates and causing chaos - it was a clusterfuk all around; a product of the time rather than a situation where any specific party was to blame, imho.

    ^ indeed. If they had not opened the gate, there would have been a different tragedy and they would be up in court for not opening the gate.

    The issues are about the lying and the crass lies in the media. If it had not been for that, it would have all blown over. It really shines a very strong light though onto the utter corruption in the police in the way that really, on the really important stuff, they lie, fabricate, and stick together to save themselves. They are no different to the scousers.

    It was a year into these inquests, and 26 years since David Duckenfield, as a South Yorkshire police chief superintendent, took command of the FA Cup semi-final at Hillsborough between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest, that he finally, devastatingly, admitted his serious failures directly caused the deaths of 96 people there.

    I know lots of scousers, and every one of them had a friend or relative who died there, same as they are all related to the beetles.

    However you can argue the toss if you like, but if they had not been pushing... it would not have happened. The big cheese cop was useless and did cause the actual accident, but he did that to stop another one happening.

    only if you are being dishonest, you are able to do that. This happened because outside the ground people were pushing. If they had not been pushing, then there would have been no need to open the Gate C, which lead to the awful events. The inquest asked the jury is "misbehavior" by the supporters lead to this, and they came back with NO. But pushing and surging is not misbehavior, it is the nature of an unruly crowd. No one, aside from you it seems, disputes that people were pushing.
