Jon Venables: Vomiting Satan, Evil, Nurture And An ‘Unpleasant’ Thing

JAMES Bulger: Anorak’s at-a-glance look at the case of one of James Bulger’s killers Jon Venables in the news. Venables has been in the news ever since the Government issued a press release that he had been arrested and put back in jail.

Daily Mail: “BULGER KILLERS: Freeing them was wrong, says juror”

The Mail shares a few words with Alan Barry, the jury foreman in the James Bulger trial.

Mr Barry, 71, who runs a Christian charity shop, said: “I can still see the photographs of the injuries we had to look at, which were horrendous. It is still so vivid. I am surprised that it was Venables who has reoffended as he was the quieter of the two in the trial — crying into his hankie and looking nervous.”

Juror turns judge:

“The pair should have been sentenced to a lot longer in prison. I, and some of the other jurors, were surprised at what they got. Although they were only ten-year-olds at the time, I believe they knew what they were doing. A sentence like that was ludicrous. And when they were released, they should have been monitored more closely.”
