Venables & Thompson - 10 year old killers

James Patrick Bulger (16 March 1990 – 12 February 1993) was a boy from Kirkby, England, who was murdered on 12 February 1993, at the age of two.

He was abducted, tortured and murdered by two ten-year-old boys, Robert Thompson (born 23 August 1982) and Jon Venables (born 13 August 1982).

Bulger disappeared from the New Strand Shopping Centre in Bootle, near Liverpool, while accompanying his mother. His mutilated body was found on a railway line two-and-a-half miles (4 km) away in Walton, two days after his murder. Thompson and Venables were charged on 20 February 1993 with Bulger's abduction and murder.

The pair were found guilty on 24 November 1993, making them the youngest convicted murderers in modern English history. They were sentenced to custody until they reached adulthood, initially until the age of 18, and were released on a lifelong licence in June 2001.

In 2010, Venables was returned to prison for violating the terms of his licence of release.

The case has prompted widespread debate on the issue of how to handle young offenders when they are sentenced or released from custody.

He's arguing so strenuously because his last name is either Venables or Thompson.

They were still locked up for over 8 years, one of them was recently thrown back in jail for having child abuse images on his computer so their incarceration obviously fucked them up.

Good.

Yeah I think he served 18 months.

There are various groups on facebook and twitter that continue to put photos of venables and thompson as adults online and where they are living.

My heart bleeds for them.

These 2 boys look like they were abused themselves. Unless the Brits naturally have rotten and missing teeth these kids look like their teeth were knocked out

If I was the mother of that poor little boy it would be my life goal to hunt those motherfuckers down and torture the shit out of them.

venables and thompson

The photos released after the trial show that both boys had their teeth then. Doesn't the UK penal system allow for dental exams/treatment?

They would have been offered dental treatment while they were locked up whether or not they took it or not is another matter. I've heard talk about them both living on diets of fast food, sugary pop and other junk. There's also rumours about them medicating themselves with alcohol and drugs after they were released as well, I'm happy to say it looks very much like both of their lives have gone right down the crapper.
