Find ecstasy in life; the mere sense of living is joy enough. Emily Dickinson. Life Joy Enough Living. Life itself still remains a very effective therapist.
Karen Horney. Life Therapist Very Still. You have enemies? That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life. Winston Churchill. Life Good You Enemies Your. This life, which had been the tomb of his virtue and of his honour, is but a walking shadow; a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more: it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
William Shakespeare. Life Shadow Walking Nothing. Life imitates art far more than art imitates Life. Believing that he would not be caught, he made his way back home to Manhattan, stopping at saloons merrily drinking and making a spectacle of himself. When the abandoned but still afloat A. Johnson was discovered the next day by the coast guard, they found the deck and cabin bathed in blood, including inexplicably a set of severed fingers.
The city was shocked by the gruesome scene and intrigued by the mystery of what happened. Police detectives could see that a yawl was missing and began a search for it.
After a few days a local boy led them to where it had been abandoned in some rushes. They began following a chain of witnesses who had seen a strange man carrying a large heavy sea bag. The detectives followed witness sightings all the way back to an apartment in Manhattan. Hicks learned the police were on his trail through newspaper reports and fled the city. Detectives had determined who Hicks was, and they continued to follow a chain of witnesses who remembered a large man with a wife and small child taking trains and boats northward.
When police found the last witness to see him, a cabbie who took Hicks to a boarding home outside Providence, Rhode Island , they surrounded the house in the middle of the night and took him captive in bed without a fight.
They found in his possession Captain Burr's watch, several money bags, and a daguerreotype belonging to Watts, among other damning evidence. Hicks was put on trial and became the sensation of the city press.
The physical evidence of his guilt was overwhelming and the defense made little effective rebuttal. The jury deliberated for about seven minutes before returning a guilty verdict. The judge ordered him to be hanged until dead. Afterwards, Hicks gave a full confession of the murders and his life story which was published as a book on the day of his execution. An estimated ten thousand people viewed the event from boats anchored in New York Bay. Hicks was sharply dressed in an electric-blue suit he had made for the occasion, as a newspaper described, "His coat was rather fancy, being ornamented with two rows of gilt navy buttons and a couple of anchors in needlework.
A white shirt, a pair of blue pants, a pair of light pumps, and the old Kossuth hat he wore when arrested, completed the attire. Soon after his burial, grave robbers stole his body and possibly sold the cadaver to medical students at Columbia University.
The officers had insisted Hicks was not aware he was being followed. Between the ages of 14 and 17, he was subjected to stop-and-search a total of 89 times, but never charged with any criminal offence. They had insisted that despite the two cars chasing his moped through traffic with their sirens and blue lights flashing, at speeds of up to 50mph, he had not been aware they were following him.
As a result, they said, the chase did not meet formal police guidelines for a pursuit that would have required them to seek authorisation to continue. The senior coroner for inner London, Mary Hassell, said the jury, which took a day to make its decision, had reached a narrative verdict.
Immediately prior to this collision Henry David Hicks was aware that plain clothes police officers were in unmarked vehicles driving at whatever distance behind him and wanting him to stop. This was a police pursuit, as defined by the Metropolitan police service standard operating procedures.Dennis Hicks is on Facebook. Join Facebook to connect with Dennis Hicks and others you may know.
