Default reck the rede

Hello John.

"If the police seriously believed that JtR was antisemitic, can you explain why both Swanson and Anderson considered Kosminski such a strong suspect? In fact, both of the aforementioned officers, who were leading the inquiry, seem to have little doubt that he was JtR."

Not bad. Robby Burns would be proud. (heh-heh)

Cheers.

Default summary

Hello CD.

"The conclusion that the killer was anti-semitic is based upon the belief that:

1. the killer wrote the GSG which may or may not be the case;

2. the GSG is anti-semitic which may or may not be the case (citing the opinion of Warren and others is not proof since they did not write it. Only the author knows for sure what he intended);

3. Schwartz was the recipient of an anti-semitic slur which may or may not be the case since he himself was not sure.

Hardly a rock solid foundation for concluding that the killer is anti-semitic."

Excellent summary.

Cheers.

Default Klosowski

Hello J.

"Even Abberline appears to have favoured a Jew as the killer, and he was the man who suggested that "Lipski" was an antisimetic taunt directed at Schwartz."

I thought he favoured Klosowski?

Cheers.

Default problems

Hello John. Thanks.

"That's very generous of you, but I'm beginning to sense that Batman doesn't quite see things the way I do."

Disagreements are NEVER a problem. However, mere assertion, constantly reiterating old material which has been refuted, and internal inconsistency ARE problems.

Cheers.

Default Gee, what coincidences.

Hello Jon. Regarding coincidences, I'm sure you've seen the list of them between Liz and Elizabeth Watts?

Cheers.

A yes internal inconsistencies are problems, especially when people keep going back to same tool that doesn't explain it.

Stride was bruised over both shoulders in addition to her front. Your video recreation doesn't indicate any such pressures on her. One hand is on the knife. The other pulling on her scarf when she goes down.

You seem to have no problem with a critic of Schwartz's view but omit said critic when it comes to your model.

No explanation is forthcoming on your part because you now need to modify your original hypothesis considerably.

He did pretend to be one though.

Yes. I like my mind to change. It has. Much of that had to do with here. That's why I enjoy threads like this a lot.

I like them even more when we just talk about the facts and not posters a lot more, but as a liberal at heart, free speech is important in today's world too.

When Schwartz says he ran as far as the railway arch, isn't it the case that he would have run past his own house? This seems a little odd to me. I mean, if he felt in danger, wouldn't he instinctively regard his own home as a place of refuge?
