Default Killer Venables Could Get £250K New Identity

James Bulger's killer Jon Venables will be given another new identity at a cost of £250,000 to the taxpayer,
Venables was jailed for two years on Friday after pleading guilty at the Old Bailey to downloading pornographic images of young children.

He and Robert Thompson were released on licence in 2001 after being given life sentences in 1993 for the murder of toddler James Bulger in Merseyside when they were just 10.

The pair had been given new identities and extensive measures were taken to make sure they were protected from vigilantes as they became national hate figures.

The Daily Telegraph has now reported Venables, 27, will once again be issued with a new birth certificate, national insurance number and other documents when he is released.

The newspaper estimated the cost of creating the new identity could reach £250,000, with close supervision from probation officers adding another £1m.

I just find this incredible, why should he be given another identity. He was a given a chance to rehabilitate and he didn't or couldn't.

Does make the argument can serious offenders be rehabilitated even more questionable and the old question are people born evil.

I do feel for Denise Bulger(sp) must be awful for her for this to be raked up again.

This guy IS evil and prison is too good for him. A Saudi punishment would be more fitting than a new identity.

I remember at the time of the murder being struck by the complete lack of a mention about Jamie Bulger's dad. Were they divorced? Even so, you'd have thought that something so horrific........ oh well..................
