I thought that with the report coming out now saying that the fans were completely not to blame people would no longer be holding the opinion that the tragedy was the fans fault. Obviously not.
Firstly, if you had ever been in the Leppings Lane end of Hillsorough around that time (I think we went there in 1991) you would know that as you enter the ground through the turnstyles (or gate in this case) all you really see is a tunnel in front of you. There were (I think) tow tunnels either side of this one with each one leading to one of the pens (apt description as we were treated like cattle back then). Now the problem was these tunnels were extremely dark and all you could see at the other end of the tunnel was the few fans directly in front of the tunnel and the goalposts (for the central tunnel). There was absolutely no way to see how full each pen was. In previous big games apparently they had police/students directing people away from the central pen when it was full, however not today. So to say they should have know the pen was full is completely wrong.
Secondly, there was such a mass influx of fans due to the fact that not only did South Yorkshire Police open the gate to let everyone in, but they also essentially pushed them all into the ground using police horses and dogs.
The sheer scale of this coverup just amazes me. To think that senior police officers and a politician would feed such lies to the press in order to save their jobs is asounding. To take blood alcohol levels from the dead (including a 10 year old boy) and to then do a search on whether each of them had a criminal record in order to smear their names and implicate them as the cause of the tragedy is frankly unbelievable.
