I personally wouldn't want to see Duckenfield hauled up in front of criminal courts, and I suspect many of the victims' families feel the same way. The key point is the victims have been vindicated, Liverpool fans can hold their heads up high, and when Man Utd and Chelsea fans call us murderers, we can point to the legal verdict that proves them wrong.
...and obviously, The Sun will never be popular in Liverpool ever again, but in an ideal world it wouldn't take a disaster like Hillsborough to make people realise what a dreadful publication that is! Now if only we could do the same for the Mail...

Man Utd fans have historically been the worst offenders of the Hillsborough songs, but they are Liverpool's main rivals and although I personally have never heard them at Anfield, I'm sure Liverpool fans have sung plenty of horrible Munich songs, so while the whole thing is horrible, I put it down to being the worst aspect of a bitter rivalry.
Chelsea fans have no excuse though, and they seem to do it far more nowadays than Man Utd fans. I remember them singing 'murderers' during a minute silence for Hillsborough victims when they were playing Tottenham.
I think it's an unfortunate side effect of their rapid success and gain in the wrong sort of fans. It's a shame for their genuine fans to see their club turn into this.
