James Bulger killer Jon Venables joins dating website using new identity

ALL child murders are horrific but the James Bulger case is one that seems to stick in the mind more than most. 
 
Who can forget the CCTV image of Robert Thomson and Jon Venables leading the trusting two-year-old through a British shopping centre to his death, Venables clasping one tiny hand in his?

Almost as shocking as the toddler’s murder was the fact that those responsible were but children themselves. Thomson was 11 and Venables just 10, when they sadistically tortured and beat James to death, draping his broken body across train tracks afterwards.

The pair were found guilty of abduction and murder in 1993 and jailed.

In 2001, Venables was released, having served just eight years.

For his own protection, authorities gave him a new identity but freedom did not last.

In 2010, Venables was jailed for two years after being convicted of downloading and distributing child pornography. The images were at the violent end of the spectrum, including some portraying the apparent rape of children as young as eight. Throughout the whole sordid operation, he had posed as a single mother.

Now Venables, 32, is back in the spotlight after a British newspaper discovered he had joined a dating website, scouting for potential girlfriends who had no inkling of his dark past.

According to The Sunday Mirror, women communicating with Venables through the site will be unaware of his past because of laws upholding the new identity he was given for his own protection.

Child protection experts feared the situation could turn into an opportunity for Venables to gain access to offspring of women he could potentially date, adding that members were able to swap video clips and chat via webcam — other avenues for possible abuse.

On his dating profile, he described himself as a “music fan who follows Everton and has a good sense of humour”, the Mirror reported.

“The horrific nature of James’s murder should mean that his killers should remain under constant supervision and be unable to freely roam the internet. But this is not happening, child protection advocate Mark Williams-Thomas told the paper.

In 2007, it was revealed Venables had formed a Facebook relationship with a single mother called Sarah Finn. The pair discussed music, according to Ms Finn, who ended the correspondence after he expressed a desire to meet in person. She had no idea that her internet friend was a convicted child killer until she was contacted by a true crime enthusiast.

“It’s chilling to think our relationship could have gone further and I may possibly have introduced him to my son who was 10 — the same age he was when he killed James,” Ms Finn said at the time.

“I had moved to a new area and was looking for friendship and possibly love. He nearly became mine — and that terrified me.”

Another policy by the Australian 'politicians' who apparently reflect the will of the people.

They deliberately put these type of people into the community to instill fear into the general populous.

Australian laws protect criminals and literally expose victims to predators.

Australian laws allow killers to remain concealed, whereas other who commit corporate offences (e.g. not paying a fine) get named.

Australia is  truly a country that supports criminal activity no thanks to the [deliberately] lax laws that favour criminal activity, provided you are supported by the corrupt police and judges.
