Description

One witness, Malcolm Walton, says he’d seen a child matching James description near the Leeds and Liverpool Canal that looked to be in a distressed state. Giving no attention or sympathy for the suffering of James and his family, Smith’s primary aim here seems to be a concerted effort to drum up sympathy for James’s murderers, Jon Venables and Robert Thompson. One came from a family background you could describe as difficult, another from a family he himself later described as alcoholic; but those boys turned into The Beatles.

They were sentenced to indefinite detention at Her Majesty's pleasure, and remained in custody until a Parole Board decision in June 2001 recommended their release on a lifelong licence at age 18. The railway embankment upon which his body had been discovered was soon adorned with hundreds of bunches of flowers. A memorial garden in Bulger's memory was created in Sacred Heart Primary School in his hometown of Kirkby, the school he would have been expected to attend had he not been murdered.Frankly, they SHOULD have been scared since the forensic and other evidence against them was so overwhelming as to leave zero doubt about their guilt. The two 10 year old murderers Jon Venables and Robert Thompson served just 7 yrs 8 months for their monstrous crimes and were the youngest people ever to be tried of murder in Britain. This was an incredibly hard book to read, not because it was badly written but because of the subject matter. However, being a true crime fan/reader, I think I probably should have read an account about the crime itself prior to reading this, just to get some background information.

She said that the killers of James Bulger should have undergone "programmes" to help turn their lives around, rather than being prosecuted.In November 2017, she had published an alleged photograph of Venables on Facebook, with the advice "share this as much as possible". On 14 July 2016, a woman from Margate in Kent was jailed for three years after sending Twitter messages to Bulger's mother, in which she posed as one of his killers, and as Bulger's ghost.

Denise and Ralph Bulger announce they are expecting another baby, but Denise refuses to come to court.With such a sensitive and moving read, it was important that this book treaded carefully and paid tribute to James, which it did just that. On 22 June 2001, having served their eight years, both Thompson and Venables are released on a lifelong license.

He refuses to admit his guilt in James’ death but police feel they have enough evidence against both suspects. It was alleged that he had downloaded 57 indecent images of children over a 12-month period to February 2010, and had allowed other people to access the files through a peer-to-peer network. He was a local newspaper reporter and wrote for the monthly magazine Esquire before joining The Sunday Times Magazine, for whom he travelled around the world writing cover stories, investigative articles, reportage and profiles. In 1999, lawyers for Thompson and Venables appealed to the European Court of Human Rights that the boys' trial had not been impartial, since they were too young to follow proceedings and understand an adult court. One scene in the film shows the malevolent doll Chucky being splashed with blue paint during a paintball game.I lost it again at the end, where her four sons are pictured together and she captioned the photo: “I love this picture of my four boys together.
