This month we conclude our two-part story on James Hanratty with the question: Was Justice Seen To Be Done? Even though it is possible that Hanratty was the killer there was enough doubt, then as now, of his innocence to make the answer to that question a resounding NO.
The hanging of a Sikh in South Wales in May, 1952, caused quite a sensation. In those far off days, the sight of anyone as exotic as Ajit Singh was enough to make people stare – he wore a turban, the kind of attire most people saw only in films. When he murdered a war widow, Singh roused quite a lot of local public sympathy, but he was hanged all the same. Yet the authorites relented enough in his case to allow his body to be cremated in accordance with his religious beliefs, which was quite a departure from the normal routine!
The sex murder of a little child, carried out at the Devil’s decree, was committed by a man who had berated his family for not being Christian enough? Schizophrenia was put forward as a line of defence, but wicked killer Pacewitz was declared to have been sane at the time of the murder. If he knew it was the Devil who had been telling him what to do, then he must have known it was wrong.
A malicious piece of fun at somebody’s expense got horribly out of hand when a young man fell into the clutches of the gay-baiters. Read about the gruesome tragedy which led to the closure of a children’s play area in a Portland, Oregon, park and forced local residents out of their apathy and into battle to get their town cleaned up!
