The 12 Marker: I think it will be on why was Highway robbery more common or less common
And for the 16 marker one of the questions might be about The derek bentley case and its significance for the abolition of the death penalty.
And for the whitechapel, it is unlikely HIGHLY to be on Jewish immigration
What do you think?
12 - about how ways of the police changed between 1900-2019
16 - 5 - normans
6 - 1500-1900
the first question scared the **** out of me for the rest of the test but luckily it was gd after that. BTW what did u write for the first question about the Whitechapel vigilance commitee plz...!!!
My first point is that they undermined the met police and CID 1888 Ripper investigation as they had members who lacked experience. Also, they received over 300 hoax letters which was published that caused unnecessary tension and instability allowing the killer to escape and creating more turmoil and confusion.My second point was that they were frustrated with the police as they did not offer rewards so they set up their scheme which offered rewards to gain witness statements. They wanted to catch the Ripper by bribing people as they believed that no one put their invoice forward for the fear of being killed also. This evidence may not have been completely accurate which undermined the investigation further. Also, they had night patrols to increase their chances of catching the killer.
the attitude of the authorities was the main reason for changes in the use of the death penalty in the period 1700 - present
