Criminals living under new identities to have them revoked if a serious crime committed
This petition had 1,187 supporters
Criminals who are given a new identity to "protect" them should lose all rights of this new identity which was given to them at the cost of the tax payer if they ever commit a serious crime.
Such as the case of Jon Venables, murdered two year old James Bulger, served 8 years and was released with a new identity along with the accomplice Robert Thompson.
There are various laws to protect the criminals new found identity and people can even be charged if they reveal who they are under and "blowing the cover" of the new identity they were given. What about the original victims family, such as James Bulgers family, having to hear time and time again that Venables has committed another serious crime. What about us, normal people living normal lives, we could live near to the likes of Venables and not know, we could befriend them, everyone has the right to know who they originally were if they continue to breach the rules of the identity they were given.
If he loses his identity and protection, maybe he/others will just stop committing crimes and live a quiet life. He and other people in the same boat, do not deserve protection if they continuously break the law.
