Crocodile tears by the Tomlinson family?

Letter to several papers after the Metropolitan Police apologised to, and “compensated” Ian Tomlinson’s family for the attack by a police officer that killed him

I would find the Tomlinson family’s ‘fight for justice’ a little more convincing had they fought harder to keep him out of a homeless hostel.

He should not have been attacked and killed, of that there is absolutely no doubt.

But it is difficult, given his circumstances, to avoid the suspicion that his death is being treated opportunistically by those who might have done more while he was alive.
