Justice for the 96

South Yorkshire Police is to reopen investigations into the force's conduct over the 1989 Hillsborough disaster and its aftermath. The force is apparently considering referring itself to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC). This follows the publication of the a report produced by the Hillsborough Independent Panel (on Wednesday) which found officers changed statements and tried to blame Liverpool fans for the crush in 1989 which killed 96 people. This is the least that should be done, this is the correct thing to do, but, it is not good enough, there needs to be fully independent investigation that should not prevent or prejudice any prosecution of any individuals within the Police Service who were involved in this appalling injustice.
