Few people have the imagination for reality

My thoughts for those who died and my respectful condolences to their families.

Petey, I see you have an interest in this.  I have some distant interest in it and I wonder about one or two things.  I remember when it happened, and I have also lived in Liverpool.

Since this is a miscarriage of justice forum, do you think the recent acquittal of David Duckenfield is a miscarriage of justice?  Or would you accept that this was a complex tragedy with multiple causes and that, from a justice point-of-view, it may not be fair to make one man criminally-responsible to the extent the prosecution alleged?

Also, and this is a sensitive topic and I will try to be delicate: To what extent do you think crowd dynamics played a role in the tragedy?  Was crowd behaviour a contributory cause of the tragedy, or do you regard it as merely an underlying factor, or not relevant at all?
