SANS - Survey on application security programs

Vigilantes are threatening to post a recent photo of one of Jamie Bulger's killers on the Net.

The picture is of Robert Thompson and was grabbed from a CCTV recording made last year.

The Guardian has reported the claims will be made in a Channel 4 Dispatches programme to be broadcast tomorrow.

Thompson, and his co-killer Jon Venables, are expected to be released within months following a parole board hearing due this week. The pair have been granted a high-court injunction protecting their identities when they are released.

The two boys were jailed for murdering two-year-old Jamie Bulger in November 1993.

If the photo becomes used to create vigilante wanted posters, then any youth with the distinctive features of having a face and hair, could find himself on the end of a good kicking. Remember when our moronic general public went out mob handed attacking paediatrician's thinking they were paedophiles. ®
