    Hillsborough police chief David Duckenfield cleared of manslaughter

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-50592077

    Absolutely disgusting!!!!!!!!!!! x too many to count.

    This kind of thing is why I don't trust anybody in a position of power and authority, be it politicians, the police, those within the medical profession, and the wealthy and privileged, especially big businesses.

    Totally.
    He destroyed 96 family lives; kids, young adults future.

    Not to mention 1000+ injured.

    The worst policing disaster, cover up, incompetence, so much to talk about this day.

    I dont know where to start.

    The only good is that to some part after 30 years a lot has informed the public of the truth, the lengths the police , government, stadium went to, to hide the truth.

    For the families, there will never be disclosure. However, the Liverpool family will never forget them .

    "They came from all walks of life: working-class, middle-class, wealthy, hard-up, from Liverpool, the Midlands, London and around the country. They included a heartbreakingly large number of young people 37 were teenagers because to watch an FA Cup semi-final then cost only 6. They were sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, husbands, one wife Christine Jones, 27 and partners. Twenty-five were fathers; one, 38-year-old Inger Shah, was a single mother with two teenagers: altogether, 58 children lost a parent."

    There was a four part drama on channel five a few weeks ago, The Accident. One of the issues raised, by one of the characters, was that nobody has been convicted, either individually or as a corporation, for any of the many disasters that have occurred in the UK. These included Aberfan, the Marchioness sinking, and many others I cannot recall.
    People in power and authority get away with all sorts of ineptitude, neglect and corruption that can cause huge loss of life.

    Not surprising, the authorities have been protecting the guilty since day one.

    "For a person to be found guilty of gross negligence manslaughter the prosecution has to prove that he - or she - owed a duty of care to the victim and negligently breached it.

    It also must be proved that it could be foreseen the breach would give rise to an obvious risk of death, that it caused the death and - most challenging of all - that the circumstances of the breach were so reprehensible as to justify the conclusion that it amounted to gross negligence and required criminal sanction.

    That sets the bar very high for the prosecution.

    The defendant's conduct must fall so far below the standard to be expected of a reasonably competent and careful person in the defendant's position, that it was something truly, exceptionally bad"

    Isn't the above clear enough for a conviction...
