96 people went to watch a football match and never came home.  Perhaps 23 years later, we'll finally come closer to knowing the truth of what happened, and how big the cover-up was ...

Duckenfield admits not closing tunnel directly caused 96 deaths: http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2015/mar/17/hillsborough-duckenfield-admits-not-closing-tunnel-directly-caused-96-deaths
 
Commander on day of 1989 disaster agrees tragedy would have been prevented had he shut the tunnel to overcrowded pens

http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2015/mar/16/hillsborough-duckenfield-truth-tragedy-inquest-police-chief

Duckenfield accepted that he retired from the police two years after the disaster, aged 46 or 47, on a full pension, and that by doing so he avoided disciplinary proceedings being brought by the Police Complaints Authority.

The inquest continues.

Justice for the 96.

They went to watch a football match and never came home.

After all the mental torture those families had to go through, I think an apology is 26 years too late.
But what punishment can be given?

Tomorrow marks the 26th year of the fight for truth and justice, while standing shoulder to shoulder with the bereaved and the survivors of Hillsborough.

http://www.nytimes.com/2015/04/15/sports/soccer/26-years-later-liverpool-fans-still-feel-the-loss.html

Liverpool FC and Everton FC captains Steven Gerrard and Phil Jagielka will release 96 balloons from Anfield to mark the 26th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster.  Steven Gerrard's cousin Jon Paul Gilhooley, 10, was the youngest victim of the tragedy.

A minute’s silence is due to be held at the service and across the city at 3.06pm – the time the match was stopped on April 15, 1989.

Ligue 1 side Saint-Etienne shows support for the Hillsborough campaign after they unveiled a banner at their home match against Lille last month.

It read: "Hillsborough, 25 years of lies...Justice for the 96!"

Ninety six people went to see a football match and never came home.

It's now in the hands of the jury ...

"The proceedings began on 1 April 2014 and, at 276 days of evidence, the inquests have been by far the longest case ever heard by a jury in British legal history."

Now there is Justice  :)

Never forgotten, and after 27 years, finally the truth has been told.

Quote
Finally, after 27 years of horror, heartbreak and struggle, the families have seen a jury deliver the verdict they, their loved ones, and those who suffered and survived but found themselves targets of South Yorkshire police’s ferocious campaign required. The families were people mostly trusting of the police, who after their horrific loss found themselves in a nightmare, fighting the police’s false case and repeated letdowns by the legal system. Derided and denigrated as “animalistic”, they were ultimately driven on by the power of human love and loyalty, and the bonds of family.

The lessons for British policing from this needless devastation of so many lives stretch far beyond the failings of one out-of-his-depth officer who took 26 years to fully confess. The police have a difficult, vital job, to keep society safe. However here, where they failed, their use of the word “animals” documented an inability to see a group of citizens even as people.

John Aldridge was on the pitch for the semi-final against Nottingham Forest on 15 April 1989, before the game was abandoned:  http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/aldo-biggest-victory-liverpools-history-11245385

Twenty seven years of waiting, hoping and praying for a day like this.  RIP, the 96. Good night, God bless.

28 years ... for the first time this anniversary will pass without a HFSG memorial service at Anfield.

“This is a day of special significance for the LFC family; in fact it is a day of significance for the whole of football, but us more so. We will of course mark the occasion as a team, this is important. I know, at the wish of the families, this is the first year where the service does not take place at Anfield but that doesn’t mean we won’t stop and remember in an appropriate manner.

There is a memorial at Melwood, with the names of the 96 people who lost their lives on 15 April 1989. We, as a team, will pause, show our respect and remember them on this day. For the victims, the families of those who died and the survivors, their story will always be our story. Their memory and the spirit of those who fought for them long after their deaths, will always be a reason for inspiration and hope, as well as sorrow.”
