South Yorkshire Police Doctored Hillsborough Evidence In Bid To Escape Blame: The Nightly EPL

The Independent newspaper is first on the scene tonight with evidence showing that South Yorkshire Police doctored Hillsborough evidence in a bid to escape blame. The newspaper is reporting that several documents had been doctored to paint the police department in a more positive light as a result of what happened on that fateful day in 1989 when Liverpool played Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup semi-final at Hillsborough Stadium in Sheffield, England.

I’m sure we’ll find out a ton more information when the Hillsborough Independent Panel report is released tomorrow.

Here are the latest Premier League and England news headlines:

Meanwhile, Joey Barton traveled to Liverpool recently and sat down with survivors from the Hillsborough Disaster, for this very informative video:

    The LFC supporter Greg that called in for the H&J show on Talk Sport was one of the most moving interviews I heard… I was waiting for a plane to fly to the east coast it was 6am pst.

    There was also a Forrest Supporter that called in to the Sportsbar on Talk Sport. He told how he was there, just 15 and witnessed the whole thing, how he couldn’t talk about it for years and couldn’t go to a game for he felt guilt about not being able to help as he was at the other end of the ground…

    I also thought Stan Collymore had some vey good points too.

    How the FA have gotten away with any accountability is beyond me, there were many stories all day being told of how unsafe the Hillsborough ground was from as early as 1980. it was an FA cup Semi Final and 96 people died, the FA haven’t posted a thing, not even an acknowledgement. Just an embarrassment…The FA must have known how dangerous it was I hope they get every single last one of them no matter how high it goes.

    The FA should Hang there head in Shame!

    It”s still excellent, including some interview recaps from earlier today. Bruce Grobbelaar’s interview was pretty telling.

    Talksport has the Listen Again feature. I recommend hearing today’s Adrian Durham’s Drive Time for a hard hitting show about the disaster.

      talkSPORT did an excellent job today, all day, covering the findings from the Hillsborough Independent Panel report. Quality stuff, and certainly the best day I’ve had listening to them (

    Police trying to escape blame?That’s not really nice to hear. I hope it isn’t true.

    Yes, I understand they may be guilty or even traumatised if they feel they were at fault for this. It is in the nature of a guilty man to hide. However, there isn’t really any point in trying to hide. Better for them just to be repentant, accept the consequences and move on. Just one incident like this dosen’t signify the end of the world. Onus, is on us, humans, to react wisely when things like this happen. I wish these people all the best!

    This is just unreal, the family’s have waited far too long for the truth to be acknowledged, let’s hope that this coverup, it’s architects and implemented are publicly outed and punished. Nothing will bring back those that needlessly died, but justice should now begin for the families.

    I recommend streaming talksport’s coverage today so USA football fans can get an understanding of the hoffific situation.

    Let’s hope the CFC fans that sing those songs will stop now.

      Dust, I’ll second that. Today is a perfect day to listen to who are doing a great job at covering the findings as well as talking to Liverpool fans and experts.

        Be warned tho it could be a little upsetting listening to some of the accounts from fans that survived that day… The sun newspaper again need to amend their slanderous ridiculous that LFC fans were steeling from the dead…. Just plain wrong.

          Not just The Sun, but others who over the years have perpetuated a smear campaign against the fans who did nothing but attend a match and lost their lives.

      Can I just add one thing… Last year when there was the whole ‘Why should Liverpool not play on the 15th… it’s not fair on other clubs’ rants from people… I hope now people have gained more of an insight into the pain and suffering surrounding the whole thing. We don’t play on the 15th because it’s a simple mark of respect for the 96 people who innocently died and had their names dragged through the mud. It’s not much to ask to have one day each year to pay our respects to people who needlessly died because of other peoples incompetence. The truth is now finally out there after 23 years… now let the justice follow. YNWA.
