11 Feb 1997 Soc 313 Film Review 2 Disaster at Hillsborough Summary The movie Disaster at Hillsborough showed the complexity of a stampede From the build-up of people outside the gate to the disaster that ended in the death of 95 people The film started out outside the stadium where 95 people died at a soccer game The stadium was not equipped for the masses of people to show up all at the same place at the same time According to the officer interviewed there was no plan in case of an emergency and no problems anticipated The atmosphere outside the gates was pleasant and people were looking forward to a good game The stampede started when the people in the rear realized that the game was to start before they were going to get in The stampede could possibly been averted if the kickoff were delayed but the man in charge refused to delay Just as at the Who concert the people in the rear of the line were in an acquisitive panic to get into the stadium This pressure was recognized by the police in the front of the line and due to poor communication nothing could be done to stop it A large gate gate C was finally opened to let off the pressure in front This is when the true disaster occurred People funneled straight onto the already full pens and created the stampede which killed the 95 people People in the rear were in an acquisitive panic and the people in the front who were getting crushed were in a fearful panic The emergency gates would open but the police not realizing the situation kept people in and closed the gates Critique This example could not be anymore perfect to show a stampede and panic All four components were met 1 Partial entrapment the reality is complete entrapment
