    In your opnion, how diligent were the constables on their beats during the time of the Ripper?

    I mean, it was raining the night the of the double event and I am toying with how lucky/made his luck Jack was that night. Be it how he slipped away from Berner Street and also with timings involved with Kate Eddowes; the ability to act between the two beats and conduct his work in such a short period of time.

    hi jun
    im sure they were very diligent. its just he was very crafty and perceptive. after being interupted with stride and not being able to finish he made his way to mitre square area and found eddowes, waited till the coast was clear and did his thing. then threw in a monkey wrench blaming jews by leaving the apron and graffiti. no crazy person or stupid thug would have been able to pull off the events of the double event, defeating two police forces and leaving them all out of sorts and bickering. he blended in and slipped away every time. again pointing to a local serial killer with intimate and hands on experience of the east end environment.

      Was that just a reply to 13 year old post I just read?

        Amusingly, yes, it was. But let's be honest, that's an easy mistake to make. But, it revives the old threads and gives us something else to talk about.

        But it is funny when someone does that, all the same.
        Don't be dissuaded Juniper, just start your post with "I know this is an old thread but"

        Or, start your post with "I know this is old hat/rope (delete as appropriate) but", it's essentially the same.

          It certainly wasn't meant to be a slight on Jun's character. Just amazing how such topics remain timeless. Even if it was 13 years after the last reply :0

            PC Long and DC Halse—two police witnesses in Goulston Street at approximately the same moment. Yet neither reported seeing the other, the piece of apron, or the chalked message.

            Yet, within the hour, one of them would discover the piece of apron and chalked message, and the other would be the first to notice the piece of apron was missing from the deceased.
            Never believe anything until it has been officially denied.

              Yes, it's almost like they're alert policemen looking for clues!

                  Hello my friend, nice to see you. On Long....is it written anywhere what his route was or where he was to go for that next loop just after passing the Model Homes entrance around 2:20?
