Bulger Killers’ Online Stalkers Get Suspended Terms

Two people that posted images online which were claimed to be Robert Thompson and John Venables, the 1993 murderers of two year old James Bulger, as adults, received suspended sentences in the other big story from last week.

Our views on revenge of any kind following child are well known and it’s a bigger concern that the people in the pictures are completely innocent. Of the two killers, Venables has been returned to prison since July 2010 so it’s even less likely that the pictures are correct. This is the unfortunate side of Facebook and Twitter gossip, which has been assumed to be fact with no checks or balances whatsoever.

The BBC has the story here.
