Proof that police changed evidence to implicate Liverpool fans in Hillsborough disaster

by | 12th, September 2012

WILL the family and loved ones of the 96 Liverpool FC fans who died as a result of events on 15 April, 1989, know the truth? No, not the Sun’s version of “THE TRUTH” . This is the truth shorn of police, government and media lies . Today, the Hillsborough Independent Panel releases its final report into the horror.

Hillsborough inquest coroner, Stefan Popper, said the dead died from traumatic asphyxiation” . He said 94 people died on the day before 3:15. (Two people died later in hospital.) Only, sources say at least one, Kevin Williams, might have been breathing after 3:15.  His mother, Anne Williams, claims Kevin was still alive at 16:00.

We will now see the medical records. Could nothing have been done for the dead after Popper’s “cut-off” time of 3:15? It’s hard to believe that’s the case, especially when so many who were injured recovered.

Why did Merseyside Chief Constable, the late Sir Kenneth Oxford, tell the then Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher, that drunk Liverpool fans caused the disaster? This was a lie reported as fact in the Sun , Mirror and Star newspapers. The Sun called it “THE TRUTH” on its front page of 19 April, 1989.

Why were the testimonies of junior police officers rewritten? All the final testimonies complied with the police line, making mention of boisterous and drunk Liverpool fans and good policing. The lie that Liverpool fans were to blame continues. In 2010, then sport minister Jeremy Hunt praised the behaviour of England World Cup fans in South Africa and slighted the dead: “I mean, not a single arrest for a football-related offence, and the terrible problems that we had in Heysel and Hillsborough in the 1980s seem now to be behind us.”

Also in 201, to help Bostonians make sense of Boston Red Sox owner John Henry’s acquisition of Liverpool FC, Alex Beam wrote in the Boston Globe :

“Two months ago, Red Sox owner John Henry and his partners in New England Sports Ventures purchased Liverpool FC, historically one of Europe’s greatest soccer teams… For now, the Red Sox PR machine is pumping out happy news about Henry’s visits to grotty Liverpool… Even by the deranged standards of European soccer, Red fans are totally bonkers. Their excitable Internet fan sites are still agonizing over a 21-year-old soccer riot that killed 96 people.”

Today the Independent has a bombshell. It has seen four original reports from South Yorkshire
