    This case haunts me. I don't know why. My son is ten, and I can't get my head around how a pair of ten years olds can murder, so horribly...





    Anyway, when two year old James Bulger was murdered by ten year old Robert Thompson and Jon Venables back in 1993, I didn't realise quite how nearly he was saved, just for bad luck:-

    1) ...an elderly woman noticed the baby, who was obviously hurt. She approached them and asked what the problem was. James was in tears, his face bruised and red.

    "We just found him at the bottom of the hill," Jon and Robert claimed as if they didn't know him.

    She told the boys to take him to the Walton Lane Police Station just down the road and gave them directions there. The little boy's injuries worried her. She pointed them in the direction of the police, but watched incredulously as they walked off in the opposite direction. She shouted after them, but they didn't turn back. As she stood there, unsure what to do, another woman who had seen the boys earlier said that James had been laughing. She believed the baby was okay; they were probably inexperienced brothers watching over their younger sibling.

    The old lady so nearly stepped in!

    2) They stopped inside some of the shops. A woman walking a dog eyed the boys with the toddler and asked what was going on. They told her that they found the lost boy at the Strand and were on their way to the police station. Another concerned woman, who had a little girl with her, overheard the conversation and joined in. "Well," she said, "you've walked a long way from the Strand to Walton Lane Police Station."

    Jon said, "That's where the man directed us." When she asked where they lived, Robert was about to answer, but Jon cut him off. "The police station is on our way home."

    Robert let go of James' hand, as if willing to relinquish him. The women watched Robert as he looked away. He seemed nervous. But then Jon took control. "Get hold of his hand," he said. Robert once again took James by the hand.

    The younger woman with the child looked down at James, who was hurt, and appeared upset. "Are you all right, son?" she asked. James didn't answer. Jon insisted they would find the station; they would take care of it. But the woman felt something wasn't right. It was getting dark and the boys weren't honest. She asked that the other woman with the dog to watch her little girl, who was tired, while she escorted James to the station. But the woman with the dog refused — her pet did not like children.

    If the dog owner had just got involved!

    that's about par for the course with dog owners. "god forbid that my dog is put out because a child is in trouble"

    I hope whoever that dog owner was has read this story and their actions haunt them in nightmares for the rest of their life.

    What with the other recent case in Liverpool concerning the 2 teenagers brutally beating a homeless man to death, I was thinking about the James Bulger case a lot recently.

    The dog not liking children sounds like a lame excuse to me. I think the woman in question just couldn't be arsed. It probably does plague her conscience, and if it doesn't she should seek out a psychologist immediately.

    I think we should be told of their identities and whatever happens, happens. They brought it upon themselves when they took his life. Denise Bulger has always fought for their protection to be lifted, and I agree with her. They will or have got out of jail. She will always have to face the consequences of their actions. She is in effect, serving a life sentence.

    I have a twelve year old nephew, an 11 year old niece, a 4 year old niece and a 2 year old nephew. If anything happened to them, Not a force on this earth would stop me from taking out their attackers.

    Jon Venables is about to be released (again) - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-23190447

    One of James Bulger's killers, Jon Venables, should be released from prison, the parole board has said.

    Venables was previously paroled, but sent back to jail for accessing child pornography.

    And the poor mother is still suffering - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-36794888

    A woman who admitted sending disturbing Twitter messages to the mother of murdered toddler, James Bulger, has been jailed for three years.

    Chloe Cowan, 20, from Margate in Kent, pleaded guilty to stalking involving serious alarm or distress at an earlier hearing at Canterbury Crown Court.

    She had posed as one of the toddler's killers and as his ghost in the tweets.
