Was it a defensive posture - "don't come near me", or was it aggressive, "I'll rip you up"?

We need to know whether Kosminski felt threatened, or felt like killing.

Exactly as there is no detailed recording of the incident we don't know how serious Kosminski was in this threat. I still think he's a poor suspect.

If we don't know the context of this incident, we can't state definitively that Kosminski had no history of violence.

From the Colney Hatch notes: 1892 Jan 9...at times excited and violent- a few days ago he took up a chair and attempted to strike the charge attendant; That's evidence.

You beat me to it John. Kosminski was named as a suspect in a contemporary police report unlike Bury and a whole host of other suspects. I'd tend to take notice of the police officers who were around at the time over some of the characters who contribute to this forum

But the same question arises, was Kozminski defending himself (in his eyes), or was he attacking the attendant?
Holding a chair up is a typical defensive posture, telling someone to get back, stay away from me.
Kozminski was paranoid, from what we read.

Yes, he's a poor suspect (the former hairdresser Aaron Abrahams Kosminski).

Be real, people who did one of the above or both are murderers?
Surely you've read or seen a lot ,much worse, but were not.

Why they didn't come near to solving the case?
