Murder of James Bulger - 25 Year 'Anniversary'
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murder_of_James_Bulger

A quarter of a century ago.

I have lived through a lot of news stories being reported but whenever I hear about this case it still sends shivvers down my spine. The sheer brutality and evil of such young monsters is beyond comprehension.

It is pretty evident that these monsters are beyond rehabilitation and even back then in 1993 you had some people saying it was wrong for them to be put on trial as an adult but yet the criminal age of responsibility was (and still is I think) 10.

Since the crime these two evil bastards have had new identities and passports but yet still, even to this day, commit crimes so what was it that made the sentences so short? I think they originally got 8 years andwatching a programme the other night the then Home Secretary Howard upped this to 15.

So how do you see what happened?

Do you see it as two children from broken homes not knowing what they were doing or do you see it as they were born evil and premediated what they were going to do that day?

I know 10 is young but surely even at 10 you would know that taking a small child away and doing what they did was brutally wrong.

I don't think what they actually did in its full context was ever published in full as there were various reports of the severity of it but however it was committed the fact is they tortured an innocent child and killed him with no remorse whatsoever.

As I say, to this day this case still makes me angry and upset more than any other case.

What are your opinions on what happened and how Venables and Thompson were 'tried' convicted and sentenced?

The programme on TV the other night showed the Norway case - they literally let the kids who committed the crime back in to society likenothing had happened - strange one that.


Yeah I saw that.. the 2 6 year old boys that beat a 5 year old girl to death.. and 2 weeks later were in school.. pretty sure I heard the authorities went to all the parents in the school to tell them the situation of what happened as well...

Quotes from one of the detectives on the case

“As far as I’m concerned that day — 20 years ago — I stared evil in the face.
Pure evil, I will never change my mind about that.

“I think Thompson was in charge, but they both attacked James.

“They were a match made in hell. A freak of nature. They went out that day
to kill — I truly believe that. And if they hadn’t been caught I fear they
would have struck again.

For anyone interested in the case I read a book called The Jigsaw Man about Paul Britton who was instrumental in criminal profiling and psychology. He worked on this case and many others like the Rachel Nickell murder. He details in the book some details about the case and the two children showed behavior at home that was abnormal after the killing so they definitely knew they had done wrong. Very hard read some parts of that book and he must have had a very unique way of switching off to be able to sleep at night. I remember the horror of the case at the time and it never fails to amaze me the depths humans can go to in committing crimes like this. Shocking that it was kids but since then there have been much more shocking things like kids getting blown up at concerts for example.

Big criminal underworld in Liverpool. I am sure there are plenty of people that know their whereabouts and who they are now.

You would of thought what with all the moody fuckers from that area, with plenty of money one could of stumped up a big wedge to bring in some one to get them both and torcher them both to the slow painful death they both so deserve, and record it, so the family can see justice was finally done.

I remember a TV interview with the mother of Keith Bennett, the lad killed by The Moors Murderers when she found out Myra Hindley had died.

"I didn't want her to die, I wanted her to go on suffering every day like I've had to"

Surely even the most dyed-in-the-wool liberal cannot defend either Thompson or Venables.


Don't ever underestimate what lefties will defend.

Rehabilitation should work in some cases but not extreme ones like these whatever their ages. Rehabilitation for me is for stuff like drug abuse not premeditated rape or murder.

At best they should both have been in a secure hospital if not a prison.

Personally I think they should be doing life with no parole - end of story, especially as one of them has been in trouble since.

As said though, the parents of James will never rest until they die

Re: Murder of James Bulger - 25 Year 'Anniversary'
Unless the two little fuckers are strung up, James Bulger's parents are never going to feel they've had justice done.

So what do you do instead? Keep them locked up at the tax payers'expense forever or try and rehabilitate them ?

Christ knows.

Eric

You can bet your life there are people that say the sentence was wrong and they did not know what they were doing. Even in the programme I watched some were saying they should not have been tried as an adult and needed rehabilitation not put away.

For the life of me I cannot understand this reasoning. At 10 years old I played up but I still knew right from wrong. Unless you are severely retarded you MUST know killing someone, as well as being premeditated is 100% wrong and evil

Surely even the most dyed-in-the-wool liberal cannot defend either Thompson or Venables. Anyone who does look upon them favorably must, in my opinion, have such tendencies themselves. There is simply no logic in applying leniency to them (not that anyone on here is, but you just know some soppy twat will be banging on about human rights).

Bulgers Mum must have had (and still have) 25 years of nightmares - poor cow, I just hope she eventually gets news they are both dead or inside for life

FMOB 25 Years ago ??

This case and The McCanns selling maddie seem more recent. Probably the serious nature of these 2 cases keep them fresh in memory?

Yeah I know but the boys in Norway are still in the same town I believe and at the time ended up being at school only two weeks after the murder. Just find it staggering really.

I think it would probably have gone the same way if they were a few months younger ie under 10. The kids in the Norway case were only about 5 or 6 years old

Re: Murder of James Bulger - 25 Year 'Anniversary'
Venables is clearly a massive wrong un and should be locked away for good. There has to be an extremely high probablity that he'll ruin more lives if he gets out.

Thompson's brief at the time has since said he expects he'll just disappear into society and never be heard of again.

Re: Murder of James Bulger - 25 Year 'Anniversary'
I watched a documentary on this the other day and was absolutely staggered that there were people voicing sympathy with the killers and saying that they shouldn't have been tried as adults which is astonishing.

Mind you if we think the sentences weren't enough over here a similar thing happened in Norway and it was just brushed under the carpet. Mind boggling.
