You don't hear much about the other one, Thompson, who was described
by Venables' solicitor as one of the most frightening children he'd
ever come across.
Yes, at the time he was always portrayed as the truly evil one of the
pair.T he 'ringleader', if indeed you can have a ringleader with just
two people. I was rather surprised that it was Venables rather than
Thompson who was getting into fights, revealing his identity, breaking
his parole terms and downloading child porn.
Perhaps he just took longer to 'mature'.
Or maybe he actually has learned to feel genuine remorse for his sins;
determined to lead a peaceful life for the rest of his days?
'Mature'? 'feel genuine remorse'?
They weren't locked up for nicking apples or kicking a football through
someone's window. They kidnapped, assaulted (to put it mildly), and
murdered a small child.
As a MINIMUM they should have been locked up for life.
I am well aware of what they did.
I don’t see how locking a ten year old up for life is going to achieve
anything, other than satisfy the desire for revenge by those completely
unconnected with the crime, criminals, victims, or their families.
Fortunately, we live in a democracy where hopefully common sense prevails -
and are not going to be ruled by some self appointed loudmouth any time soon.
If you don’t like UK justice, you can always fuck off somewhere else.
It is your, so called, 'common sense' that dismisses the death of a
child as you have done, the level of knife crime we see today, attacks
on people in their homes,.....
I haven’t mentioned knife crime or attacks on people in their own homes, so
how can you say my common sense has dismissed them?
If you are happy to release sex offenders and murders, as you clearly
are, it is hardly likely you are going to be tough to others, is it?
What appears clear to you, is just something you made up.
If you would like to quote the post in which I mentioned my happiness in
releasing sex offenders and murderers perhaps you would be kind enough to do
Without that, you cannot be clear about anything that makes me happy. You are
simply bullshitting for effect.

A child died in horrific circumstances (and whatever I do or say; nothing
will bring that child back to life), but rather than just leave the
perpetrators to rot in solitary as some form of barbaric revenge, would it
not be better to try and make sure something like that never happens again by
attempting to understand why it happened in the first place?
There must be something which triggers certain young children to commit
murder, but not others. Why not try and discover what that is, rather than
just follow a pack of tabloid led obsessives who know nothing about the
You have listed a number of reasons why you think people may support
locking those who commit this type of crime up but missed a key one-
ensuring THEY don't do it again. Revenge is YOUR idea, not mine. Clearly
you have a more petty agenda.
Are you really such a blinkered and narrow minded bigot, that the only way
you can think of making sure no offender ever commits the same crime again is
to lock them all up until they die?
Do you have such little faith in the consciences of previous offenders to eat
away at them while in solitary, and make them realise the evil things they
And before you set off on another bullshit adventure of ‘clearly'
misinterpreting my points in order to attempt to boost your own argument, no
I don’t believe that applies to every murderer.

Those who commit these crimes simply can't be trusted not to reoffend,
some have committed multiple offences in the past already.
Some have, some haven’t. How do you tell Thompson that despite his good
behaviour (presumably) and complete adherence to the anonymity and abiding by
the rules set down by his sentence, rehabilitation and (presumed) release on
license, that because Venables can’t be trusted not to re-offend, neither
of them can actually be released from jail until Venables is carried out in a
