    Justice for the 96 A cliché often heard in history classes is that “history is written by the victors.” This notion that the truth behind historical events is influenced by those left to record them is one that is emphasized on events in the more distant past. Events that occurred more recently are less often given this scrutiny, and many times the first version of the truth, the “winner’s” version, becomes widely accepted. Furthermore, because this truth is distributed by people in positions of power, often through an official mainstream media channel, the story that is immediately told is trusted and accepted by the masses. Unfortunately, this lack of scrutiny can lead to the spread of incorrect information being passed off as facts. It can take years to correct public perception, and as the Hillsborough Disaster of 1989 shows us, the consequences for groups of people can be disastrous. In the case of Hillsborough, the misinformation came directly from the police, and was reiterated by authority figures in both the political and soccer worlds. This paper will examine how this “truth” came about, and how what was recorded as truth was a direct result not of the events that happened, but rather by what those in power wished to convey. Additionally, it will contrast how those in power so easily dictate what the initial truth is, with the long and tireless fight the powerless must take to uncover and spread the correct facts. Background The FA Semifinal match was to be played…

    Chelsea took care of business at Goodison Park against a lackluster Everton side on Sunday. It was an odd match that saw both sides simply going through the motions in the first half, which was understandable to a degree for Everton, as they aren’t necessarily playing for anything and will likely finish the Premier League season in seventh place. As for Chelsea, though, they had plenty to play for, but you couldn’t tell by their first-half performance, as they had a few chances, but lacked the…

    Although, the Hillsborough incident is a complex issue with many stakeholders and perspectives, in order for analysis I will focus on the behaviour exhibited by the Police and Media, using the framework of Kant and others. Since the majority of Hillsborough centres on the grave consequences, utilising a non-consequentialist theory such as Kantianism provides balance. Kant’s theory is deontological it judges morality by examining the motive and rationalisation of actions; rather than goals…
