Recommended Posts

Good news let’s hope it goes for all the other charges against the Sheffield people involved ,for this to go on all these years at millions of pounds that could have been better spent on charities etc let’s hope this puts a end to one of the chapters or will it be another appeal. Let’s move on . Mr bettison hope you and your family have had a big weight of your shoulders and an now get on with your life without these allegations that have been cleared.

Totally disagree.

 

The reason this has cost millions and dragged on for so long is because of people like Bettison, who have been lying through their teeth and getting away with it. The families have stuck at it, trying to get at the truth on behalf of their loved ones who died.

 

Bettison and co have not been exonerated or declared innocent; the CPS say they do not have enough evidence to go to court. That is very different, and also debatable.

Two witnesses changed their story and one has died because it's dragged on so long.

 

CPS doesn't have much choice really, but he's always faced accusations of evidence tampering.

The thing that shocked me about this is the 'SIR Norman Bettison'.

That proves to me that they really are now giving the honours out with the cornflakes.

The families have fought for the truth, don't make me laugh.

 

The truth is that there's blame on BOTH sides yet anyone west west of the pennines think they did nothing wrong.

 

UNTIL THE DAY THEY ADMIT THERE PART IN THE DISASTER AND ACCEPT THEIR RESPONSIBILITY IN CAUSING THE DEATHS OF 96 INNOCENTS THERE WILL NEVER BE JUSTICE DONE.

Can't comment on whether or not false evidence was given or evidence tampered with but I believe the police were on a hiding to nothing. Several thousand Liverpool fans, most of whom had been drinking and many of them without tickets, were converging on the Leppings Lane gate. If the gates had not been opened the disaster would have occurred outside the ground and very likely would have been even worse. The cry from the families would then have been "Why didn't they open the gates?"

Or, alternatively, if they had maintained order inside and outside the ground, everyone would have got home alive.

Just seen the breaking news that Norman Bettison had all charges against him dropped. Taken a long time to decide that there was insufficient evidence to prosecute him.

Usual outcome in these cases, guess it might incriminate someone higher up in the chain of command, maybe a politician or the like.
