The British Bluecoats

Post by Karen on Mon 9 Apr 2012 - 6:38

THE WHITECHAPEL MURDERS.

Another victim has fallen into the clutches of the Whitechapel fiend who has so long baffled the London police. This is the ninth murder committed in the Whitechapel district, obviously by one and the same person. The failure of the British blue coats to run down this demon, whoever he may be, shows a want of efficiency that amounts to downright stupidity. The London police seem to be way behind the police of other great cities, both in this country and Europe. There is really no excuse for their failure to put the perpetrator of the foul crimes which have been committed in the Whitechapel section of London where he would be unable to do any more harm. There is no question that if the New York, Chicago or Boston police had been called upon to deal with a similar case they would have promptly shown their efficiency. It is safe to say, at least, that no man, or organization of men, however adept in the perpetration of crime, could go about either of the great American cities named committing murder after murder in spite of police vigilance, as the Whitechapel fiend has been doing. We doubt if there could be a single repetition of mysterious crime by the same man or organization of men in any of the large cities in this country. There have been mysterious crimes that have baffled the American police, it is true, but in all such cases the clue to the perpetrator has been so meagre as to leave the police completely in the dark, but we have yet to learn of two murders being committed in succession by any criminal on this side of the water, who escaped long enough from the clutches of our wide-awake bluecoats to commit another.
The fact that the mysterious London criminal, who has been so long laughing in his sleeve at the police of that great metropolis, has confined himself entirely to one section is another point which tells strongly against the British bluecoats, for that very fact certainly should make their task of detection easier.
The latest theory regarding the Whitechapel murderer's identity is that he is a religious fanatic named Nicholaus Wassilyi, who was not long ago released from a Russian lunatic asylum, where he had been sent from Paris in 1872 after butchering eight women in a manner similar to the way the Whitechapel victims have been slaughtered. It is said the London police have been searching for Wassilyi for some time. Why should it have been necessary for them to search for him? Ought they not to have kept under their eye the perpetrator of so many atrocious murders from the time he left the Russian asylum?
Truly, the London police have been very, very stupid."
