        Shades of the East End Vigilance Committee(s) in this following article.
        We've already seen rewards being suggested and a police official publicly defending the efforts of the police department...just a few of the similarities between the skeins.

          We also find internecine violence on the upswing amongst the negroes of Atlanta at the time of this black Jack The Ripper...much like we ( or at least I do ) notice a rise in reported cases of violence towards women in London around the time of the Ripper. At least, thats my observation anyway.

                      As posited by many Ripperologists today, the idea of more than one "Ripper" or killer on the streets of the East End is echoed in the following.

                      One other thing which you might have thought of yourself...
                      ...if they never caught the killer of any of the dozen victims, how did they, meaning the police,press or blacks themselves....know it was a black Ripper in the first place ?

                      Just as with the adage that "no Englishman could commit these ( 1888) crimes..."....could the possibility of a Caucasian killer have been excluded for similar reasons ?

                        Likewise in 1888, great passion and an appeal to women to stay indoors ( I have yet to see any definite references to prosses...yet I'd wager some of the women were ) was found.

                          ...and here's where the story ends.

                          This is the last article found in the Atlanta paper on this skein of murders.

                          No culprit convicted for the skein or the majority of murders, despite rewards, patrols, heightened police presence,appeals to women to stay off the streets, and two promising suspects released ( Think Ludwig and Pizer )....
