I AM WRITING to let your readers know that the Americans behind the recent appeal on behalf of the murderers of James Bulger are not representative of the American people as a whole. The vast majority of Americans applauded both the sentencing of the killers and the workings of the British justice system. Sensible people in any country realise that a sociopath at age 10 can be just as dangerous as a sociopath at age 30 and both need to be removed from the general public. It is unfortunate that a few foolish people can put the safety of everyone, including themselves, at risk by their support of this reprehensible legal manoeuvre.
