The Yorkshire Ripper is dead

And of COVID-19 too, probably. Uh… well done COVID-19? I guess?

I wasn’t around when Peter Sutcliffe comitted his crimes but I was around for another “ripper” case, the Ipswich one, and I can remember the fear and sadness in the news. Man, we have to stop giving these guys nicknames, seriously, knock it the hell off. Also, it’s taken this long for the police to apologise for the language they used to describe Sutcliffe’s victims, wow.

Happy Friday the Thirteenth. Feels appropriate.
