Jon Venables. My 2 cents

In 1993 Jon Venables and Robert Thompson lured away James Bulger and killed him.

They were found guilty and were sent to a young offenders institute.

In 2001 they were released on licence and, rightly or wrongly, they were given new identities at a cost of thousands of pounds to the taxpayer.

Jon Venables has now been taken back to prison due to 'allegedly' serious offences.

If they are serious offences and he is found guilty, then he shouldn't be given a new identity when he is up for release. He has given up that right and the taxpayer shouldn't have to pay again.

I thought he was meant to be closely watched by members of the probation service?

Just my 2 cents on the subject.
