Left’s “hug-a-thug” mentality gives British child-killer “endless second chances”

David MenziesMission Specialist

British child-killer Jon Venables is back in the news.

Who can forget the story of two-year old James Bulger, snatched during a shopping trip in Merseyside, England by a pair of 10-year-olds, Jon Venables and Robert Thompson?

Venables and Thompson were supposed to be imprisoned for a long time, but in 1999, the European Commission on Human Rights determined that the duo had been denied a fair trial and fair sentencing.

Interference by this kangaroo court put the wheels in motion for their release in 2001 along with an unprecedented court order granting them anonymity for the rest of their miserable lives.

It’s rumoured that Thompson now lives in either Canada or Australia and he’s managed to stay off the radar, but Venables – whatever his name is now – keeps getting into trouble.

Clearly, he hasn’t learned. Recently, Venables was convicted yet again on more child pornography charges yet, some see nothing wrong in how the Bulger case unfolded.

This may be a British story, but the folly of embracing the left’s “hug-a-thug” mentality has wide-reaching ramifications.

Martin Ashfield—Your story reminds me of this story," I am An Englishman" You probably have heard it before, ( 5 min.) It is so sad that all this History may get wiped out within 30 years. Once Islam takes over, they destroy the History.

Harold Hoff i am not really a heavy duty Christian by any means , have only been to church for weddings and funerals, but it does seem eerily like what has been written is coming true on the subject of the end times. If it is i am thankful i got to live freely in a decent country for most of my life.

Well, I guess it’s no worse than the official government sanctioning and rewarding Islamist terrorism, and, indeed, even officially apologizing to them for the rest of us being so mean and Islamophobic. The whole world would be much better off if an inanimate object, such as a rock or a bicycle, were elected leader and then just leave the rest of us to administer our own justice.

I agree with Drew Wakariuk. It is becoming obvious that Progressive-Liberalism is in fact a mental illness. No ethics, no morals, no compassion for victims – only for those who do evil, and no common sense or sense of justice. I’m not at all a Christian (yet I did read the Bible cover-to-cover) but if I was, I’d be getting convinced that the “End Times” ARE upon us, as all of those seemingly-ridiculous predictions have all become fact.

The left love real criminals & terrorists & dictators. They hate the whole idea of justice, decency, freedom.

Sad how the left tends to care more for evil people rather than innocent people. Their values are demented.

That must have been a hard story to cover David Menzies.

When considering pornography, now the #1 addiction in America, children are being exposed to and becoming addicted to porn at the age of 9, and getting younger.

Dan Spencer, has written a book entitled Every Parent’s Battle: A Family Guide to Resisting Pornography dealing with this addiction and how parents, Priests and Clergy can help men deal with this addiction. (book review

Hugh Heffner was one of the prominent figures in pornography and, as Dan Spencer relayed the story of Cosmo Magazine back in the 60-70’s, from Sue Ellen Browder’s book on her career with and the truth about Cosmo, (good interview & book review, Cosmo actually had a conference on whether they wanted to support or not promote pornography, because at that time feminists were actually against porn. It was a man who convinced them they should promote porn, and these women bought into it.

Pornography has and is still destroying men, now women (50 Shades of Grey etc), families, and children. Men (and women) scoffed and laughed at me in the 70’s for being so against pornography. I wonder if they’re still laughing.

TAMMIE PUTINSKI-ZANDBELT said “Protecting the predator is wrong on so many levels”.
This is the NEW world that we live in, the Liberal, left wing deplorable world.
Because there is nothing different from this insane Liberal sympathy story than the Liberals, leftists protecting Muslims and Islamic scum all over the world especially in Europe and more so in Britain.
I am so sick of listening to and hearing about how low down the British government has sunk. Britain is the country of my birth and my ancestors. My Father and grandfather and ancestors fought for the British crown in numerous wars and conflicts including the two world wars. They fought to keep Britain free from oppression, free from dictators and all of them will be turning over in their graves at the state of Britain today.
But I digress, because my point is that Western governments have insanely started to protect the predators at all costs, from Venables to each and every Muslim Islamic pig that rape and kill and do so with complete immunity from the law. These governments will go out of their way to demonize anyone and everyone that dares to say and – very soon – ‘think’ askance of the Muslim Islamic PIGS.

Venables has proven time and time again he is nothing more than an evil psychopath. Leave it to a reporter to leap to his defense and assume the psychopath has the capacity to actually feel guilt and shame…Orr is delusional!
