      Unlawful killing option for Hillsborough
      The jury at the Hillsborough inquests has been told one of it's options is to consider whether the 96 victims of the disaster were killed unlawfully.

      The coroner has begun summing up nearly two years of evidence into the disaster.

      Sir John Goldring also told the jury it would be asked if ''error or omission'' by emergency services, match planners, football supporters and stadium design contributed to the 1989 disaster.

      He said the question of how the 96 died was ''the most controversial''.

      The legal process is expected to take three weeks.
      The outcome of the summing up and the eventual verdict could trigger a multitude of claims and counter claims.

      Questions for the Hillsborough jury to consider

      Do you agree with the following statement which is intended to summarise the basic facts of the disaster: "On 15 April 1989 96 people died at the disaster as a result of crushing in the central pens of the Leppings Lane terrace following the admission of a large number of supporters to the stadium through exit gates."

      Police planning for the semi final match - was there any error or omission in police planning or preparation for the semi final which caused or contributed to the dangerous situation that developed on the day of the match?

      Policing of the match and the situation at the turnstiles - Was there any error or omission in policing on the day of the match which caused or contributed to a dangerous situation developing at the Leppings Lane turnstiles?

      Policing of the match and the crush on the terrace - Was there any error or omission by commanding officers which caused or contributed to the crush on the terrace?

      The opening of the gates - When the order was given to open the exit gates at the Leppings Lane end of the stadium was there any error or omission by the commanding officers in the control box which caused or contributed to the crush on the terrace?
      Are you satisfied so that you are sure that those who died in the disaster were unlawfully killed?

      Behaviour of the supporters - Was there any behaviour on the part of the football supporters which caused or contributed to the dangerous situation at the Leppings Lane turnstiles? If yes was that behaviour unusual or unforeseeable?

      Defects in Hillsborough stadium - Were there any features of its design, construction and layout which were dangerous or defective and which caused or contributed to the disaster?

      Licensing and Oversight of the stadium. Was there any error or omission in the safety certification and oversight of Hillsborough Stadium that caused or contributed to the disaster?

      Conduct of Sheffield Wednesday FC before the day of the match. Was there any error or omission by SWFC and its staff in the management of the stadium and/or preparation for the semi final match on 15 April 1989 which caused or contributed to the dangerous situation that developed on the day of the match?

      Conduct of Sheffield Wednesday FC on the day of the match. Was there any error or omission by SWFC and its staff on 15 April 1989 which caused or contributed to the dangerous situation that developed at the Leppings Lane turnstiles and in the west terrace?

      Conduct of Eastwood and Partners (SWFC engineers) - should Eastwood and Partners have done more to detect and advise on any unsafe or unsatisfactory features of the stadium which caused or contributed to the disaster?

      Emergency response and the role of South Yorkshire Police - After the crush in the West Terrace had begun to develop was there any error or omission by the police which caused or contributed to the loss of lives in the disaster?

      Emergency response and the role of South Yorkshire Metropolitan Ambulance Service (SYMAS) - After the crush in the west terrace had begun to develop, was there any error or omission by the ambulance service SYMAS which caused or contributed to the loss of lives in the disaster?

      3 weeks for the summing up and then how long the Jury will take over the 96 is anyone guess. I think we all want the same for the victims and their families JUSTICE.

      Discrepancies regarding safety certificates for the Leppings Lane terrace come under scrutiny.
      The coroner also told the court that structural engineer John Strange who was at the game could remember nothing about it - strange that.

      Hillsborough official feared for fans' safety YEARS before disaster. 

      Secretary used to take terrace tickets off sale, inquest jury reminded.

      The FA and Sheffield City CC and Sheff Weds better hold their breath because they are not going to walk away from this one.

      The FA and Sheffield City CC and Sheff Weds better hold their breath because they are not going to walk away from this one.

      At this early stage of the Coroner's summing up such disclosures indicate corruption at the very highest levels, the FA and Sheffield the city and the club while culpable are just foils to confuse and mask the real culprits of evil and misdirection; the witch Thatcher who was photographed at Hillsborough in the wake of the disaster and her ministers.
      There were decisions taken which could only have been approved at the highest authority.

      From the inquest proper in March last year:
      Former chief inspector David Duckenfield who was the match commander at the disaster denies there was any conspiracy to blame fans and the suggestion that his lying as the disaster unfolded was the beginning of the cover-up, the inquest was told.
       
      http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2015/mar/12/hillsborough-commander-denies-police-conspiracy-to-blame-liverpool-fans


      Duckenfield was of course promoted and honoured profusely subsequent to his admission of lying on that day of horror.

      my idea of "Justice " is a bit old testament "an eye for an eye" springs to mind.

      Duckenfield still waffling after 26 years stating his mind went ''blank'' although he does admit to lying about gates and orders to open them:

      Jury told of police report for Taylor inquiry which described fans as ''animals''.

      Due to jury illness the inquest will not sit again until Monday.
