I've been keeping a wary eye on the case of Jon Venables, the killer of Jamie Bulger, and how he has been reincarcerated for a crime that cannot be divulged to the public.
Interestingly, Jamie Bulger's mother wants to know details of his most recent crime. Aside from the fact that the law protects us, and him, from such information being released, I really don't. Admittedly, I'm not someone who has been hurt by him in the past, but even if I was, I have no idea why I would want to stir up such hurt again.
I worry that if she or we were to find out, it would be used to justify an ongoing campaign of hatred against him. Yes, he's a criminal, but that's why he's been sent back to prison. Let the justice system do its job, and we, as a society need to learn to forgive.
Yes, forgive him.
