But according to you he was arrogant enough to tough it out on the streets. Why the need for a bolthole in the first place?

Can you name one serial killer who dismembered one series of victims in private whilst mutilating others on the street, in a matter of weeks?

And yet he deliberately left the torsos to be found, not the heads.

I don't know where the Torso did his killing but his dump sites stretched across London, whereas the Ripper never ventured outside the comfort of Whitechapel or its outskirts despite other corners of London crawling with prostitutes. Why was the Pinchin Torso the only Torso victim that overlapped with the Ripper's territory?

Not in the case of Kelly, the only victim killed on similar grounds to the Torso series and he made a right meal of it.

And you have no idea that the Torso murders spanned that long, either. For argument's sake, if the murders did span that long, and given the cooling off periods between each murder, that would suggest an organized killer with a degree of self-control, in contrast to the Ripper who struck with alarming regularity over a short period of time in high-risk locations.

Yeah but no one's judging you, Fish.
