I think a lot of people have a problem with that 'ordered debt to society', it was a very lenient sentence to Venables and Thomson in the first place and for one of them to be in jail again makes a mockery of his release. On the second point, wouldn't that fear make you think twice about such basic crimes, knowing you will be dealt with severely? Not saying it should happen, but it would make some sense to bring back the death penalty.

People thinking twice about such basic crimes is not worth ushering in the Galactic Empire.

After being around kids for as long as I have, I know it just takes one moment of inattention for one as young as two to wander off - they have short attention spans and get distracted by things easily. It happens. Losing track of your kid for a few seconds is not a crime.

What those older boys did to James was most definitely sick and twisted. Yeah, okay, if James' mother had been paying more attention, James might still be here. But, maybe the two sickos would've just moved on and found another kid. They were obviously intent on committing the crime.

I don't think it's fair to blame that poor little boy's mother for what happened to him. It was one moment of inattention that has ruined her family and her life. I'm sure she's suffered
insurmountable guilt over it - which I believe could be the reason behind her desire to know what the killer did to be put back behind bars. She's maybe wondering if some other parent is suffering for their moment of inattention the way she is after losing James.

Same could be said for old people aswel, as they are a lot like young kids as there attention spans usually disapear.

Worth a bump for two reasons........

1) It was 25 years ago this month, so there has been a number of shows on TV about it, including Sir Trevor Mcdonald interviewing James mother Denise Fergus (since remarried).

2) Jon Venables is currently in prison for the second time since his original release, both times for child porn.

UK has seen many sick stories since (Ian Huntley, Roy Whiting, Mick Philpot etc) but this one for me is still the worse. It bothers me the most that James was born on the exact same day as I first became an uncle. So whilst this year my neice turns 28 and will become a parent for the first time, all these luxaries are what James should be having, but can't. Also because the two killers we around my age and even at such a young age you know not to kill.

Robert Thompson appears to have learned his lesson. The money gone on new identities for Venables has gone to waste and the government should stop protecting him and let everyone know who he is. Social media is packed with so called pictures of him through the years and whilst I would agree they are of the child paedo killer (things like teeth, mouth and eyes you can't really change), if they aren't of him some innocent dude could end up dead.

Since press stories last week that he's a fiancee who knows his past and is going to wait for him to come out of prison, photos supposedly of her (some with the guy others claim is Venables) have also been released. Again if it's not her someone innocent could end up hurt. So many want justice for James and if the real identities were known, it would stop confusion. Plus they should live in fear for the rest of their lives anyway.
