Contradictions…

In a controversial move, the investigation into the scandal will clear probation officers of any individual wrongdoing in their supervision of Jon Venables… Sir David, in the ‘serious further offence’ inquiry, has concluded there were no flaws in the way Venables – who was on life licence – was supervised.
There’s a bit of a shocker, eh?
Sir David will, however, demand that ‘lessons be learned’ from the case.
Ummm…

If no-one did anything wrong, then what…

Ah:
He will say that, with hindsight, Venables should have been subjected to far more regular psychological testing.
Of course. Right. Hindsight.

So will ‘the lesson’ be that this testing should then be applied to everyone released on license, regardless of risk or warning signs?

It’s the usual public sector way, after all…
He will say the state of the killer’s mind was such that, unless he was watched round-the-clock, he could not have been stopped from viewing sick images of child abuse.
Unless, of course, someone simply took his PC away..?

Nah. Too simple. Like the individuals running our ‘justice’ system.

My God, you'd need to be desperate to make advances on that!

20/20 hindsight, useless for people who make a living polishing chairs with their arses.

Seems to me that it's practically impossible for a public sector employee to get sacked for doing their job badly - and worringly easy for them to get censured for not expanding their areas of responsibility until everyone elses' freedom, liberty and privacy are threatened.

What happened to Boris Johnsons plan to reduce Londons population?

Little mishap with the 'delayed posting' feature. It'll be up tomorrow! :)

Or kept the little murdering bastard in prison until he died?

But easy to get sacked for blowing the whistle on other public sector workers doing their job badly.

"Or kept the little murdering bastard in prison until he died?"

That'd have been my first choice.

Well, not my first, admittedly..

It is interesting they can't look after these high profile scum, and fail to 'convert' them. Presumably, a lot of effort was put into Venebles?
The "plan" seems to be to let these and all varieties of lesser scum out into our powerless supervision. The donkey who used to live next door and his munter queen were giving detailed plans to their probation officers on my demise. Part of the cunning plan to supervise them was to let them continue to live next door. There has been no investigation, despite the fact she fire-bombed a house round the corner.

nick 2 said "Seems to me that it's practically impossible for a public sector employee to get sacked " Well, Katheryn Birbalsingh did her job well and got sacked for pointing out the Emperor had no clothes. They can sack people if they want to. Mostly it's let sleeping dogs lie or else Unison or some other public sector union will cause a fuss.

Well of course if he were where he ought to be - in prison - he could be watched "around the clock".

Whether he would be is another question, but at least he wouldn't be in a position to indulge his fantasies on innocent members of the public.

We don't learn, do we?
