Twenty-eight years after Britain’s worst sports disaster at a soccer (football) stadium in Hillsborough, England, on April 15, 1989, a thorough 14-month investigation has led to six ex-cops being charged with negligence and misconduct over the senseless, avoidable deaths of 95 of 96 Liverpool fans. This is the first time any individuals have been charged in the deaths after families of the dead went on a tireless, emotional, decades-long campaign to have the case looked at again when it was initially ruled a tragic accident.
During the investigation, it was discovered the major players in the tragedy were Freemasons who took great pains to protect each other and hide the truth that they failed to relieve overcrowding and delayed emergency responses as stadium seats collapsed, causing a panic among the soccer fans, all of which led to the deaths of the 96 Liverpool victims.
As the Freemason angle of the case was brought to light, a wave of distrust against the secret society swept across the UK prompting many cities and towns to pass ordinances requiring any Freemason running for public office to declare their membership openly.
