    Who will be watching this? It is gonna give away alot of info, that has previously not been given to the public about this monster, and the life he has led.

    I will watch with interest. Will you?

    I heard enough about him and his crime to never want to hear about him again....my heart broke for the little soul whose life he helped destroy.

    Better still watch the program Gratch!

    He was one of the boys that killed Jamie Bulger (aged 2) when he was 10 years old. Have you never heard of him? :eek:

    Oh those guys :( I couldn't believe someone could do that some poor wee baby. I mind one of them was going around in my town for a while until they were found out.

    I didn't know it was on but now you've mentioned it I think I'll try and watch it. An absolutely horrendous crime.

    Denise Fergus has amazing strength.

    Both boys are pure EVIL & should never have been allowed to be released.
    If this had happened in the USA then they would never have got out.
    A life for a life is my motto on this !

    I feel for Denise Fergus so has such strength.

    R.I.P James sweetheart.

    This really affects my mum, because 1. We live within 10 mins of Bootle Strand, 2. I was the same age as James when it happened and was with my mum that day and 3. The 2 boys asked her for money for a payphone that fateful day, and she always wonders if she had given them the money then would they have done what they did and it so easily could have been me. She feels so guilty :(

    My mum won't take Marcus (3) there because of this despite it being years ago but today the area is still very chavvy.

    My mum is a worrier and a what if person, its just you don't expect it so close to home!

    She thinks that if she had given them money, then they might have rang their friends up and done something so they weren't bored, or rang parents to pick them up. Just something to get them away from the Strand and stopped them doing what they did.

    I don't think they should have been let out after what they did, and for him to go back in for kiddie porn offences straight after release, shows he wasn't safe for society.

    Well just watched the program. Do any of you have any sympathies for Jon?

    I will have to wait for it to be put up on the net to watch it but just read this on the net

    Thompson, who developed an interest in textiles and design, won praise for a beaded wedding dress he made, as well as a tapestry of a lion's head which hung in the foyer.

    He passed five GCSEs and took A-levels, was taken on supervised days out to shopping centres, the Lake District and the theatre at Stratford-upon-Avon to get him used to the public.

    Taken from this article: James Bulger killer Jon Venables sent back to jail over 'drugs and workplace brawl' | Mail Online

    I was shocked to read that they let this murderer out on trips. He should have been locked up and the key thrown away.

    One of my friends used to be a reporter and worked closely with the police.. She worked on this case. After this case she gave up her job through the horrific ordeal Jamie Bulger went through..

    These lads were put in secure young offenders, Very close to me.. And to think they are out with supposed hidden identities so we wouldn't know them if they were living next door.. :mad:

    What these two boys did was EVIL, they did not just kill the little baby the tortured him first. Batteries were stuck up his little bottom and all sorts. The poor soul, I have little pity for the difficulties Jon is having now. Because whatever he is going through, it is nothing compared to what that angel and his family have went through.

    Though Thompson seems to have been reformed, in my eyes-still evil!

    The irony is that at the time Robert Thompson was painted as the worst of the two because he remained the most impassive in interviews and Venables was more emotional. Of the two, it now seems that Venables is the worst. It goes to show, you should not judge by appearances.
