Living in the UK i strongly feel Jon Venables should've been identified,then maybe this young innocent father would not be in fearful predicament he is now in.The Government are solely to blame for this and should be held accountable, there should be no hiding place for callous murderers.

Just like the logic of the Salem Witch Trials:

If he denies his identity, of course he would; he's trying to hide. If he admits to being the killer, then it reaffirms what we thought and justifies killing him = If they float, they're witches, so they must be burned; if they sink, they're not witches (although they will have died innocently of drowning at the hands of the witch hunters).
