Fri Sep 02, 2011 7:17 am by Admin

Where would a book on Jack the Ripper conspiracies be without mention and an adequate assessment of the Metropolitan Police Special Branch Index Ledgers?

For those who do have a personal interest in these developments on the case, details on their existence and relevance was first published in the foundational reference work on the Whitechapel murders in 2006, Jack the Ripper: Scotland Yard …

Secret Files on Jack the Ripper?

Breaking News?

Hi all,

Yes, this is a breaking story on Jack the Ripper historical sources but it has been an on-going saga for some time with the UK Information Tribunal. The story is a bit more involved than the press are reporting, or as Trevor Marriott is describing. There are certainly some details of a Victorian Special Branch investigation of Jack the Ripper, however, because suspects …

Searching for Truth with a Broken Flashlight

Searching for Truth with a Broken Flashlight: The Reality of Misconception and Wishful Thinking in the Evolution/Creation Controversy

by Michael Hawley


Greetings all,

I have a non-JTR book just out called Searching for Truth with a Broken Flashlight - The Reality of Misconception & Wishful Thinking in the Evolution/Creation Controversy . I have two reasons for telling you. First, I have no humility and I am plugging a piece of work I've researched for nearly 30 years. Second, Phil Carter, a fellow ripperologist, gave me some crucial advice as I was working on my wishful thinking chapters, and I wanted to publically thank him in front of fellow ripperologists. Thank you Phil.

I purposely avoided any comments about ripperology, even though some of it would have nicely fit in. The closest I got was this short excerpt:

An Example of Integration

Taking Dr. Damasio’s discoveries into consideration, human beings often take advantage of both decision-making processes [the two discussed earlier in the chapter are the intellectual method of decision-making by using an inductive and/or deductive logical approach – objective and the emotional, or affective, method of decision making by logically justifying a believe – subjective] in order to effectively discover the truth. Take for example a murder case. After the murder, a crime scene investigation ensues. The investigation begins with crime scene recognition, followed by documentation, finding the evidence, collecting the evidence, and then analyzing the evidence. The investigators are using the intellectual method of decision-making in order to make sense of the case. Detectives assigned to the case will also use the intellectual method of decision-making as they create a list of suspects. When the suspects are investigated and evaluated and the list narrows to one probable suspect, decision-making may begin to shift. As a detective finally becomes convinced of the guilt of one particular suspect, his or her attention, time, and energy is now focused upon that suspect. This new motivation and focus is an affective response, meaning it is a product of the emotional method of decision-making. The detective is now attempting to justify his or her belief with the discovery of new evidence. In one respect, the emotional method of decision-making has an advantage over the intellectual method, because of the increased level of persistence and drive associated with it. Tenacity is an excellent quality for a detective to effectively catch a murderer, as long as it is focused upon the right person.

I have more excerpts on my author website:

Again, Thank you Phil.

Sincerely,

Mike

The A6 Murder

Post  Joe Chetcuti on Thu May 31, 2012 7:28 pm

The James Hanratty case has been well-known for over 50 years. I think people will enjoy Norma Buddle's The A6 Murder. The details can be found here:

William Beadle and Andrew Buddle provided good commentary in Part IV.
