"london bridge station" Discussed on Female Criminals

"On August, ninth eighteen, forty, nine twenty eight year old Marie Manning anxiously waited for her lover fifty-year-old Patrick O'Connor to arrive for dinner. She had her gun ready, and if that failed her husband thirty year old Frederick Manning had a crowbar at five o'clock, the doorbell rang. Marie rushed over to answer it all the while praying that o'connor had come alone as she opened the door, a smile spread across her face O'Connor had come by himself this time just as she'd asked him to. She welcomed him inside and directed him to wash up in the back kitchen. It was a perfectly reasonable request. It was sweltering outside, so connor could certainly use a freshening up before dinner little did he know Marie was right behind him, and as O'connor entered the back kitchen, she lifted her gun, pointed at the back of his head and fired. O'Connor's body crumpled to the floor. Loath to remain in the kitchen with O'Connor's prone body, Marie ran upstairs and told her husband what adjust transpired unable to believe that his wife had done the deed manning grabbed a crowbar and ran downstairs to see for himself. Once there. He found O'Connor lying on the ground, a gunshot wound to the head despite his injuries. However, O'Connor was still breathing and manning knew exactly what he had to do. Murray watched as her husband raised the Crowbar High and bashed O'Connor's had with it unsatisfied. Manning Swung Sixteen more times before he was finally convinced O'Connor was dead. Throughout the gruesome attack Marie did nothing to stop him by this point. She cared more about O'Connor's money than his life. It didn't matter to her of the situation had become more violent than intended so long as she got what she wanted. Before we continue with Marie Manning Psychology. Please note I'm not a licenced psychiatrist or psychologist, but I have done a lot of research for the show. Psychologists Patrick Moose Oil and Yohannes Hugh egg found that greedy individuals lack an ability to adjust their behavior based on their environment. They simply remain motivated by their greed. They found that greedy people strive to obtain desired goods at all costs like Marie. The participants in their study displayed selfish and reckless behavior that came at the expense of others, marines. Greediness pushed her to the extreme. She no doubt could have had some money if she just asked O'Connor for it. She was his mistress and he cared for her, but Marie didn't want some money. She wanted all his money, so she did the unthinkable. After ensuring that O'Connor was dead Marie and Manning stripped him of his clothes. Then they stuffed him into a pre, dug grave, and poured a Bushel of quick lime over him. Finally they filled the grave and related the floor. It looked almost as good as new. Once they'd concluded their Macabre Task Marie Left Min ver- place and went to O'Connor's lodgings there. She told his landlady and arms that she was worried. Because O'Connor hadn't shown up for dinner. She wanted to wait for him in his room. Marie barely had to convince the landlady. Prior to his death O'Connor had instructed miss arms to let Marie into his room even if he wasn't there so on receiving the go-ahead Marie trooped up to O'Connor's quarters once upstairs, she quickly stole all of his stocks and railway shares. Ms Arms was none the wiser as she bid burri goodbye. However not long after returning to miniver place with O'Connor's stocks and shares in hand Marie realized she hadn't gotten everything despite this. She decided that it would be too suspicious to return a second time on the same night, so she patiently waited for the following evening. When it finally came, Marie returned to O'Connor's lodgings. Feigned surprise when ms arm stated that she still hadn't seen her tenant. After. Bypassing the Landlady Marie went to O'Connor's room supposedly to wait for him once again instead, she ransacked the place making sure she didn't forget anything this time around. At the conclusion of her second robbery, Marie stopped pretending to call on O'Connor. She had everything she needed and saw no need to maintain the ruse. On Sunday August twelfth. O'Connor's workmates finally reported him missing. They told the authorities he hadn't shown up for three days of work. They also related that to men at the docks called Graham and Keating had seen him on his way to the manning's on the evening of August ninth with that clue in hand. The police showed up at Min Ver- place, but twenty eight year old. Marie claimed O'Connor had never shown up for dinner on the ninth. The police had no reason to doubt her, so they let her be however. O'Connor's cousin William Flynn wasn't so easily put off. He insisted that the police question her again this time with him present. Seeing no harm in granting his request, the police obliged. The following day they revisited miniver place again Marie stuck to her story, but she inadvertently lets slip a curious statement in the middle of the interrogation. She suddenly said Poor O'Connor. He was the best friend I had in London. And the police found that odd. Why was she already speaking of O'Connor in the past tense? What exactly did she know? Unfortunately for them after that telling Slip Marie, back to fainting, complete ignorance, with only an ounce of suspicion and nothing else to point to the police left for the day. They told Marie however that they would call on her again soon. Murray nodded and smiled in response waving them goodbye. Then once they were gone. She shut the. And started to pack. She had no intention of being in residence. Should they ever return? With Frenetic Motion Marie gathered everything. She needed into her trunks. She already had a plan forming in her mind. She just needed to execute it. After she was done packing up her things, she called for a cab and asked the driver to take her to London Bridge, station, but once there she had the cabdriver wait for her. She'd be back in a moment. Then she ran into the station, dropped some of her luggage with the porter on each suitcase Maria fixed a label that read Mrs Smith, passenger to Paris. She believed that would be enough to send the police off on a wild goose chase. With part, one of her plan executed, Marie got back into the cab and demanded to be driven to.

"Have a really bad day. You're grumpy to every survey with a nice to be around, but then the next day. You go and help out with thing and you do some past development. It's not black white. Even this well, would you get fed information and some days? That is too much. Handle it, and you just have to shoot yourself in a room and do whatever hobby is. He takes your mind away and then the next day you can be the best passed and you WANNA be again. I agree with you. It's not black and white. And I think the. I guess WHA. What I what I guess. I'm trying to say is the with religion. It's not black and white as well. It's not like religious, either good or bad I think religion. Like anything can be. Good it can be incredibly life, changing and transformational, and I've seen it happen. A seen people completely turn their lives around through binding finding a community. In religion but equally scene, it's destructive side as well and I think the more that we understand and appreciate that life is not black and white there is. No. Right or wrong? Oh, yes, or no or a binary in life. The life is completely in the gray. That everything is. Everything is complicated. Nothing is. There's no simple answers like that. You gotta remember. Which is chemical reactions? Taking place every single second. Hoffa people to understand the actually. Their consciousness is just a load of particles combining together. To become a foles an action. And actually we all animals, we basic on a moves. We have basic needs but we've developed so much that we can understand so much about ourselves. That can become very complicated to even think about that as a process. And I think that's why rich people like religion it gives them an answer to those questions, and it gives purpose on at times of distress like someone dies. Let's say a a child has been born. It gives them protection the actually. This child May pretentiously now have a more secure life because we ties his child. Wouldn't it was in? There's times when you need that community to come together. People like religion. Yeah. I mean there's no. In many ways there's no greater force for good in a time of crisis than the church. If you will going through a hard time the. The the understanding of evolution and the. Formation of the universe through the Big Bang. Is Not going to provide you comfort, but a community supporting you making food checking in with you. All of that stuff can, and that is the good that I've seen in the local church. It's just the. Fact that it's is not A. I think is understanding. That? Good doesn't raise the bad and the bad doesn't raise that good. The A can both coexist and do coexist exists than we thought to get used to that. And I think as well. We're moving towards a point where. Religion and spirituality is gonNA. Be Less about do I in this book, so do I fit in this box. Do my beliefs. Do I believe in Christianity or Islam or Buddhism I think people are gonNA realize. That all of these ideas can be helpful to us. In some ways, and may be helpful to us in different situations in. It's about taking what is useful at the time. And and using not. And is about the spirit behind. The. The religion rather than. Institution that it's become. Yeah, it is essentially you should take values. You take and apply your life. I think it has to be in high meaning. Have thought makes sense. For me. Obviously I'm not religious, but things dodge tried to price in my life, won't the environment? It is must-see thing if I can impact is some way my life for example right now we're looking at house might be even so house and I'm thinking okay, Cole, maybe now's the time, should I do gardening? Should I get compost bin? These very simple basic things I could do it my days. They live to make an impact. For once. Yeah, that's that's a growing up. So that's one value. Your the people friends family, doing those little bits and pieces around from the people. which helps these quiet religious odds? To go above, and beyond help a friend or someone in need as I know, people have been that for me. I've got an analogy to describe religion for you, and it uses trains Joe so. I want you to imagine for me. The I'm giving you directions from one part of London to another, so I tell you you need to get on the northern line via Banque towards Morton, and that will be how you get to Camden. and. That's directions from London Bridge Station so anytime that you're going from London Bridge to Camden new, get the northern line via bank. However. If say a few days later, your trying to get to Camden again. And, you'll say Morton, which is the complete other end of London the complete other under the northern line? If you're getting a northern line via Banque, you're gonNA end up going way past. Come and you're GONNA MISS YOU STOP! It. A lot of people see religion as like these instructions, the we take, and we, we take them out of their context and say okay. You know the Bible says. You need to go via Banque to that for therefore you need every time you do it. You need to go via Banque actually. Humanity is progressed so much more since then A. we're coming. We starting our journey from much later point on the journey, because more morally where a lot more progress were not a lot more advanced, so a lot of the laws in the Bible seem very backwards because they coming from much earlier point in time. So my question, you would be then why people considering why people consistently trying to evolve religion. What actually maybe? We just need to leave it. Nevada, okay, what are we lead from? It was a good come from those times. A very old human way of thinking, we should not wrong a very long time ago. It's also a time when we didn't have information. Being shed every single second an access to that information. So maybe why don't we just leave it? Leave it in the poss. Dismiss it. And move on takeoff values. All. We're GONNA. Progress better with or without beauty question. I guess what I'd say to that. Is, the. Yes, we've got. A lot of information now. I don't think information is the endo. You've got to know what to do with that information. You've got to have some kind of wisdom in that. And I think the good stuff that we can take from.

"The day. You had barely begun at London Bridge Station when the delay announcement started pretty miserable returned to work for train. Commuters only only made worse by this morning's average fare rise of two point seven percent. That's justified hike. According to Robert Nisbet from the rail delivery group which represents train in companies where an industry like any other that's facing rising costs the staff bill for example but said he'll costs as well what we want to do is we want want to cover the day to day running cost of the railway to free up billions of pounds of investment for the public and private sector. But this is an average figure. It's still just below the rate of inflation flation and that's for the third year running but for some passengers using South Western railways. The increased prices were compounded by cancellations. The aftershock of a twenty seven day strike by the RMT union. An editorial column can't quite believe it. The reason for the latest cancellations nations is the gods who inflicted the strike have been off-duty for so long. They need to be retrained to ensure that they are properly refreshed in terms of all necessary. Surrey safety activities. The same applies to some drivers. The situation would be farcical if it were not so serious it is yet. Another reminder of the damage caused by the unions militancy regarding its misguided grievance over the role of train gods it is worth pointing out again. An experience on other lines has shown that drive only trains are safe the fact that the disruption now has to continue even longer perhaps more legitimate safety safety reasons is a bitter irony that will be of little consolation to passengers implementation of the government plan. John Fashanu Union legislation banning future rail strikes unless the union concerned has reached a minimum service agreement with the relevant rail. Company cannot come seen enough city hall editor Raw. Slider we've been talking about the fare rises for a few months now now. They've hit and nobody's happy. Are They not happy for commuters coming into London today at the regretted certainly with a seeing the season tickets going up by I. Two point seven percent two point eight percent and also those own southwestern railways the trains that come into Waterloo had the added misery of having lots of the trains not running. And this is a this culmination of what's been a very long running saiga queer the RMT guards have gone straight. Take the the actually. The strike ended last night actually at midnight. It Run for twenty seven days making it the longest streak in Yuki real history. But I'm afraid. The fakes continued. TEND TO S- morning and hundreds of trains were cancelled again because bizarrely some of these girls had been off so long on strike that they were then judged to require l. safety training to make sure they were fit to print the trains again. That cannot have gone down well with commuters Gannett. You can imagine how few days would be as as we see to the. Ns this double whammy really if you if you. You wouldn't be happy to be going back to work today on a sort of chilly January for stay back in the office. I you're paying more for your travel and then you're standing on the platform waiting for the train to come in. It doesn't come and you just think it just couldn't get any more ludicrous. Really for people no fun at toll. So do we know when things will get back to normal. Well even Woz news is that there could be more strikes on the way the RMT has not given upon this the row center in what's called driver only operation which essentially means that the drivers open and shut the doors the MTA says this is not safe which is disputed rated by the train operator on the RMT's arguing to have conductor or a guard on all trains as is the case on some lanes. Just no those no say that Stroz going to go away and anytime soon and more stake. These could be announced in the next few weeks. There is some good news on transport unspoilt in London. The mayor of London has announced a new companion packs which means for those disabled under this. Those older Londoners who need a companion to get around the city. We'll have a free companion pass and often an a companion for a disabled landed.

Come me he will then ensure that that person the killer gets a free pass as well. But the mayor's record in improving access to tis stations isn't quite promised as it. That's right you could see.

That has not happened so there is a sense that yes this is a good idea to have the companion pass but he has actually not been delivering quite as much as he promised I initially when he was when he was first elected.

"Multiple breaking stories. This hour terror overseas in London. Two people are dead after a stabbing spree by suspected terrorist and in the Netherlands. At least three people have been wounded in a stabbing in The Hague here in the United States. Were on the verge of a historic week as the impeachment inquiry moves into a new fakes house. Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry. Nadler has just a letter to the president and set a new deadline for the White House. Decide whether or not to participate in the proceedings of begin again with today's deadly terror attacks. CNN's Nina dos. Santos is tracking the story from London. You know what are you hearing at this hour. Thanks very much jim well. Things are looking all the commerce site London Bridge Station but it was a completely different picture about seven hours ago. When of course the specter of another deadly terror or attack made his presence felt on the capitalist streets terra once again in the heart took London passages on this became witness to a shocking scene? Eight take members of the public. Were fighting with a man. It looked like he was trying to in down onto the pavement. It looked like a shining light. Come across from from the man on the floor and I realized quickly with a nice. I'm in the pace over with some guns and it ended with a man short. Police say they were called to the area just before two PM following reports of a stabbing after being apprehended by ordinary. The know London is a suspect wearing a hoax. Explosive Device was shot dead by officers. I also want to thank the members of the public who have helped by showing extraordinary courage and stepping in to tack- tackle this attacker. It wasn't far from London Bridge. One of the busiest commuter stations in the capital city that things began to unfold of other block in that direction behind the security. Cordon witnesses say. They heard what they later realized was a quick blast of gunfire they were told to evacuate the area urgently some panic and they began to flee down streets like these Ben Chaos people tried to make sense of the themes. One one woman found the situation all too familiar. This is the second time that you've had a lucky escape for an incident like this. Yes I was also in the Boston math in tax in two thousand thirteen evasively expense whilst at the mouth and sort of twenty minutes or something. I can't go just before. It actually happens on a very similar thing of just having a lot a lot of people just running and nobody knew what was happening and just fear like huge amount of fear on their faces and you could feel it as well in the energy of just. Everyone stressing stressing out London. Bridge was the target of another attack. Two years ago eight people were killed and forty eight. Were injured this attack comes comes just weeks after the terror threat for this part of the UK who's adduced to substantial and ahead of a crucial general election for the entire country as the motivation of the suspect. Police say they're keeping an open mind. Well Jim CNN law enforcement and source has been telling us that they believe they have dented fide. The London a suspect here. In this case you can bet that authorities will be working throughout the course also tonight Furtively to try and understand exactly what their motivation was as I said there and also how exactly they came to be in London Bridge with the intent to maim and eventually kill people two people dead as you said this hour three more remain in hospital and members of the government security services. Is One of the police lease currently meeting in Downing Street for an emergency gathering back to you. All right does Santos. If you have any more information on the suspect the motive please let us know and for more. We're on a possible motive behind today's attack. Let's go to CNN's. Nick Payne Washing London. Nick still some unanswered questions about the suspect but it sounds like authorities are starting to put together the the pieces. Yeah I mean if you look at. The kind of device seems to straps to this individual that hawks back to twenty seventeen eighteen attacks which were ultimately links to jihadist. But at the same time please saying a little bit more detail about how this attack began across the river. You can just about make out sort of Kalisz there of the front of what's called Fishmonger's hall. That's where they believe. The attack originated before two o'clock. And then just just stop on the bridge. You can see a tent. That's we think where police are continuing forensic investigations. Were that graphic scene of the assailant. Being shot was actually actually occurred. Now bear in mind that we simply know very little about the motivation behind this attack. This point is I say he's motorcycle. Randy's behavior mimic that of two thousand seventeen which suggests chest maybe some links to radical ideology. But at this point oversee police we re trying to confirm his identity. See whether or not there's any residential properties prophecies they could look at any associations of his to try and nail down precisely how he came to be the. I should point out. We possibly look back Jim to the sort of al Qaeda era and the idea of command and control that. There's somebody essentially giving the orders for something like this things have changed enormously and it's entirely possible one lone individual arm simply hey with a kitchen knife and warring made to look like a hoax. Explosive Device could've done this entirely by himself and also to UK security services have always appointed for some time now about the possible impacts of mental health issues with individuals like this to regardless of whatever choice versatility they may have in the background as justification for what happens happens. Jim and nick hours after the attack in London multiple people were stabbed during a separate incident in the Netherlands. I it sounds as though perhaps Would stand to reason that something like that might not be connected or connected. What are you hearing about that clarity? The incident hake entirely connected as far far as we know at this point. Dutch police saying it is not terror related. They are looking for suspects still and horrifying scene. Frankly no less terrifying. Because because of the absence of an ideology society being behind it at this point and big market street in the hake central city to the Netherlands where a lot of shoppers outs. It appears that the stabbing occurred three people injured. Most of them thought but police at this point to be minus so an awfully terrifying seeing here a suspect still the road but at this point does please not thinking. This is a terror attack. Jim That's very important to know. Nick Payton Walsh. Thank you very much. We appreciate it also breaking tonight. We're we're looking ahead to a very busy week in the impeachment inquiry House Judiciary Committee chairman. Jerry Nadler has just sent a letter to the president giving him a new deadline to decide whether or not the White House wants to participate in the proceedings are full. Mattingly has more on that Fill it sounds like there might be a little bit of wiggle room here for the White House to some degree. Look there's out essentially to deadlines we know. There is a a hearing next week. And this is the next phase of the democratic impeachment and create the House Judiciary Committee taking up what the House Intelligence Committee has done up to this point that I hear and really kind of nuts and bolts hearing. How does impeachment impeachment work? What's the historical precedent constitutional scholars coming up to testify in the White House still has a deadline as of Sunday night as to whether or not they WANNA participate? What change today? Or what's new today. Churn Chairman Jerry Nadler Judiciary Committee telling the White House if they want to participate at all at any point in the impeachment proceedings. They need to reply. Yes by next Sunday at sorry by December number six at five. PM The reason why that matters. Is this the way the house impeachment rules were drafted if the White House wants to participate and that includes asking questions of witnesses submitting proposals for their our own witnesses giving a concluding statement. They need to tell the Democrats at this point in time. The challenge and I know you reporting this on a regular basis in your day job is does the White House think that this would legitimize and inquiry that they've said is a sham up to this point so we still don't have an answer to that still a huge outstanding question whether or not the White House is actually going to participate but now they have a deadline not just for that first Wednesday Wednesday hearing but for the entire impeachment proceedings and the Judiciary Committee. We expect several hearings to go forth on this one big wrinkle to keep an eye out for if the.

"And Sheila Baynes eventually goes out business, but it for time. It's like this. Wild west in a way of horse drawn omnibuses in the city where the conductors says were known as sort of cads because they stuff as many people as they possibly could into their carriages in order to make much money as possible enjoy this huge new market was it as an untapped Marco. Is this a moment of change the city that more and more people are coming into the city. And so there is pressure from ability because it strengthens you want to have people around before where people just literally walking everywhere and working much closer to their homes, for example. Yes, and yes to those questions. So I think that the city had she, but she clocked up London had ground to a halt. So the bus was one of the things that helped it start to move again and other ones walked or used the river. Or if you're very rich used a camp. It was chaos out there and the great thing about the bus. The thing we learned is everybody gets on the bus. So it's plus and women's don't to use it and stop to explore the city and get access to bits of the city that had not had before and everyone acquire. That knowledge that essential knowledge. The London is have which is where buses go, you know, it's one of the things that makes you a London is nine oh, I can get the bus from there. And then I changed their and I take the next one and all these people develop this knowledge in Victorian times mean she'll be unveiled his whole spouse in eighteen twenty nine seven years later is when London bridge station opens up steam trains, bringing communities from further outside. It's exactly that kind of moment where London is moving from being a kind of more gray area in city into a heavily industrialized absolute pivotal moment as far as the city growing and transforming baiting. People living in towns cities in Britain than living in the countryside size again. It's the right vehicle for the right moment. Nama say this is one of the great things about the book is just literally pieces you understand that the mores of the time because you, yeah, you've got like how to behave in a boss, you what makes it good and back, and I found those bits kind of really insight for glorious rate. The motor comes along the. The bus becomes addictive it close to what we think about all through the bus survives and adapts as you say, we begin to get better train lines into begin to get the underground begin to get more motivated goes Joe, why did the the bus not only survive on the streets, but stay key and people's mind, and they thought about the city, and it's one of the thing. I think it says on the press releases the tourists in travel by cheap London's travel by bus, and you really hammer. This point home is is always been part of the psyche of a Londoner to know that bus route, for example, and carry something like three times passengers and chief, you know, we we imagined chiefs the great workhorse of London nine nine thousand buses the route lettuce us morning. Eight o'clock we'll be out there this evening at five o'clock there the things that carry people and when the bus arrives, it's really quite nearing. I mean, they're all motorized vehicles. But it happens so quickly introduce the first night of us in a very early years of the last century and. Within ten years all the buses are motor buses, thousands of them. And they introduce kind of advanced designs for them. The famous beat bus was one of the first mass produced vehicles ever ever made in this country. So it's at the forefront of technical innovation as well as neighboring this enormous rapidly expanding city to grow. But why did it see for example, the tram or the twenty bus which we did have them off? In the late nineteenth century and lost till the nineteen fifties Charlie buses loss from the thirties to the sixties, but buses of flexible buses can go almost anywhere as long as it's not a low railway bridge or overhanging tree or narrowness otherwise buses can go down the streets of London. And if something happens like a bomb drops in the blitz or a water main bursts, you can just over two bus. You can't do that with the tram..

I've been in this job too long. Let's say the existential crisis for the end of the episode. Yeah, sure. Wish we have another question from from a friend of the show. My name's Jim Morrison. I sometimes tweets, basic casually, right for some news outlets. I'm the this at London bridge station for evac stratosphere, and and my question is this you ride for city metro when I was growing up in nineteen forties. Rural Yorkshire, I was taught city was someone with the cathedral town was something with a market and village was I was lifted. So what other new criteria? Because clearly loads of cities, it should be cities and towns that should be upgraded. What is the new criteria you devise for having a city in the UK? What's the minimum in needs to be? This is precisely the kind of worms I said, we shouldn't earlier in the put cat. I had genuine have. Questions before the chip type. I've got net so so now I'm excited. I think it's really it's. It's not actually true that you need feed would be a city. There was no point in history where that was true in England. It was dumb by festively Royal decree, so they're awesome incredibly small places officially cities. And in the small, listen David in Wales, which is a village of free valves and people. I think that does have cathedral, but it's not actually the roller is basically just like the Monica Saint yet you can be a city which is which is super right. What are the places that aren't officially cities that you think should be? I mean, one of the big ones that get so angry about this did literally once stock cooling himself city and told not by the government is reading, which is not not nothing reading is like, you know, it is not like Chicago or something is, but it is is a settlement of like several hundred thousand people on that level. It's kind of a bit with this one. I. I actually think the really boring on his just like population should be the keeping really. I think above anywhere above about hundred thousand. You kind of in the ballpark. And do you have thoughts if a dense population of that size? I presume within within a relatively contained year. I mean, you kind of need a concentration. I mean, you can't just have like sprawled where I mean somewhere like self and on c. is more marginal. Ignores the area's still about quarter million people which is a lot, but it's really 'cause it's about four or five towns of merge 'cause they sit just the other side of green belt. So you can actually build houses there. So is love is if our city or not, I don't. I, we cannot as warm. We will replay this end of cities data, but that's mostly his kind of easier to destroy loins. I okay, this other cities. But I think it's a week claiming some light reading that is very clearly, you know, is a sizeable settlement of somewhere about scale had existed. Outside the London commuter belt, I think is inconceivable you wouldn't treat is a city really. I don't know. I'm kind of fund of the idea that we have a very small city in Wales on a massive commuter town that clearly is a city in size, and you find that really irritating Nile. I find it quite funny. I think we should call other very small places cities. Just if I, if I was the Queen owed abuses, power so much. Well, we're talking about numbers. You're ready to do the number round.
