Cover Up At Hillsborough: A British inquiry finds that an official cover up took place after 96 Liverpool fans were crushed to death before their team's FA Cup semi-final in 1989. Prosecutions may now follow.

I believe this might be the first time in history someone bothered to make a cover up official.

Wow. The police immediately started plotting to blame the victims. That is so sad.

Some reaction here. The Sun finally published an apology for its reporting at the time; I doubt it'll convince people in Liverpool to buy it again.

Hopefully the people in charge of these things will finally end Steven Cohen's media career. F'ing blabbermouth has been yammering the same BS as the police and the Sun for years and some of us had enough a long time ago. #jft96
