  • Elements 14- Under The Influence :Assaults Invoking The Ripper's Name

    On the Men Who Would Be Ripper thread in the Suspects section.....there must be 200 instances ( probably closer to 250 ) we've located where men threatened to 'Jack The Ripper' a woman.....and a few involving women threatening to do the same to men and women.

    I'm sure that there's been many instances of people threatening to commit mayhem on another person, seriously or in jest, invoking another murderer's name since.....but I believe the Ripper to be the first so honored....

    Possibly Lipski just beat him to it, albeit the use of the epithet was very localised and short lived.

      Gareth:

      When people used the word 'Lipski', they were using it towards someone else...the opposite is true in this case, isn't it ?

        I know about the use of the threatening epithet "Lipski" at the time of the Ripper murders but was it used closer to Israel Lipski's arrest and execution in 1887 for the poisoning murder if Miriam Angel?

          A case of a Jewish man berating his daughter's suitor (also Jewish) and using the epithet, Lipski, towards him was found a few years ago by Debra Arif.

              I would submit that the use, say, of the threat "I am going to Ripper you!" is different to just invoking the name of a killer. Rather, it calls up both the 1888 killer and what is about to be done or threatened to be done to the victim by the wrongdoer.

                Also as Gary Barnett have discussed in the Arthur Harding Thread, violence in the East End was all too commonplace, based on injuries coming in to the London Hospital. Therefore, and not surprisingly, it makes a lot of sense that in that cramped area the name of the Ripper would be invoked as a potent threat, given that the Ripper crimes took place in the very same bloody area.

                Cheers
                Chris

                  The phrase. "I'll Jack The Ripper you", was used worldwide, not just locally.
