Personally, I usually take a very tough line as far as criminals are concerned, as indeed does Theodore Dalrymple, but on this occasion I have to say that I think it was wrong for two 10 year old boys to be tried in an adult court in the way that Venables and Thompson were. They should have been tried in a youth court. Of course Venables may have turned out to be the same kind of person anyway.
