Police Constable Hinton

Post by Karen on Thu 12 Jul 2012 - 1:51

Also mentioned in the book, "Jack the Ripper: An Encyclopedia," on page 124, is a Police-constable Hinton. Here is all that I could find on him:

POLICE INTELLIGENCE.
MANSION-HOUSE.

PECULIAR CASE. - Walter Armstrong, a master carman, was charged with being drunk and assaulting the police. - Mr. Bendle, solicitor, appeared for the defence. - The complainant, Herbert Hinton, a City police-constable, S 14, deposed that on Friday afternoon, between two and three o'clock, he was in Sparrow-corner, Minories, when the defendant came up and struck him violently on the left arm. He also kicked him on the legs and tripped him up, but witness caught him as he was falling, and they both fell together, and a number of roughs fell upon them. The defendant was drunk, and tried to strike and bite him; ultimately he was taken to Seething-lane police-station. The evidence of the officer was confirmed by a Metropolitan constable named Bristow, who assisted in getting the defendant to the station. - On the other hand, Frederick William Dickenson, a gun-maker in the Minories, who had seen the fracas, testified that the constable Hinton struck the first blow. The case having been remanded for further evidence, Inspector Roe, of the City police, who took the charge at the station, gave it as his opinion that the defendant was drunk when brought there, and very excited. The officer Hinton also was excited, and the inspector admitted that he blamed him (the constable) for letting a man throw him three times. He denied, however, that he told the officer that he had lost his temper over the matter. - For the defence, Mr. Wright, licensed victualler in Sparrow-corner, spoke to the rough behaviour of the police in carrying the defendant to the station face downwards in broad daylight, and when, in witness's belief, he was perfectly sober. The defendant was black in the face from this treatment when he reached the station-house. This evidence was confirmed by two other witnesses. - The Lord Mayor considered both charges of drunkenness and assault proved, and fined the defendant 5 pounds, with the alternative of one month's hard labour. The money was at once paid.

YESTERDAY'S POLICE.
BABES IN THE WOOD.

Three Children Sleep in Epping Forest to avoid Stepmother.

A terrible story of "Babes in the Wood" in real life was told at the Stratford police-court yesterday, when Joseph and Mary Webster, of 28, Smeaton-road, Chigwell, were summoned for neglecting three children - Mabel, 14; Hugh, 13; and Ernest, 10.
Mr. F. Stern, prosecuting for the N.S.P.C.C., said that the little ones, who were step-children of the female prisoner, were found in a ditch in Manor-road, Woodford, after a search by the police which extended over a couple of days. The children were standing in some inches of water, cold, shivering, and crying. Their lower limbs were naked, and they told Constable Hinton they had been sleeping out for three nights, and were too frightened to go home, because "father and mother" got drunk and beat them.
Constable Hinton said he found the three children in a ditch in Manor-road, Woodford, in about three inches of mud and water. The two boys were crying and very cold, and the girl's coat and skirt were wrapped round them. Their clothing, such as it was, was very muddy. He took them all to the police station and gave them food, which they ate ravenously. He had warned the parents as to their conduct.
Station-sergeant Clarke said that after the children had been taken to the station the female prisoner came to the station drunk and wanted to see the children, but they begged so hard not to be brought to her that he did not permit it. Witness had seen the man drunk on Nov. 4, when the children had been sleeping out in the Forest for three nights, and witness had sent police officers to scour the district.
The evidence of neighbours bore out all that had been said of the drunken habits of the prisoners, and their ill-treatment of the children.
During the hearing of the case the female defendant had kept up a constant interruption, despite the warning of the Bench and the warrant officer. It was apparent that both had visited public-houses that morning.
Mr. B. Tabrum said this was one of the worst cases he had heard. The state of the prisoners at that moment showed they were not fit to have charge of the children. The Bench would, therefore, see that the children were put into a good home. The prisoners would each have six months' hard labour.
