    Terrifying if true case out of Liverpool:

    The Bulger case haunted me as it did many in the UK. I'll never forget that grainy video of little James being led away. Guardian link follows:

    Close call in Liverpool. It makes the hairs stand up on the back of one's neck.

    The Bulger case was shocking (still is); before it happened I'd read of the Mary Bell murders in Newcastle in 1968, perhaps even more shocking as it came 25 years before the James Bulger killing in 1993.

    For those wondering, from Wiki:

    Mary Bell

    Jon Venables & Robert Thompson

    The James Bulger case still haunts me to this day! I think it was the first I realised how evil young children could be.
    Two ten year old boys capable of torturing and killing an innocent toddler. Horrific!

    I remember the outrage all around the uk when they were giving new identities and released. People were so angry.
    One of the boys ( men now), seems to have kept himself out of trouble. The other, appears in the news now and again. He was sent to prison for having images of child abuse.
    He's been back in the news again this year :(

    Awful case, I am doing my social work dissertation on criminal responsibility and referring to this case and of course the neglect children suffer once they are tried as adults for murder in the UK. Pretty deep stuff I have to say.
