Just some of thoughts the people of Liverpool must of had in 1993 when youngsters, Robert Thomson and Jon Venables abducted toddler James Bulger from a shopping centre in Merseyside and beat him to death on a railway line. After serving eight years for the murder of two year-old, James Bulger, one of his killers, now Jon Venables, was given a new identity to help prevent possible revenge attacks towards him.
