Vigilanteism Isn’t Helping

April 23, 1906 ·

The government has appealed to the British public, not to interfere with police investigations and to let the authorities deal with acts of lawlessness, after officers came under attack by vigilante’s trying to enforce the curfew in parts of East London.

A spokesperson for the police denounced recent spates of vigilanteism and warned that anyone caught would face full force of the law.

“They were people using the current state of unrest as an excuse to carry out active disorder and violence.”

The government made the announcement after locals fought street battles through the night with supporters of an alleged criminal mastermind called Christopher Hargreaves.

An uneasy calm has returned to the streets of East London, as residents start to venture outside to witness a carnival of carnage left behind after a night of destruction.

The police are to meet community leaders later today, in a bid to find ways of preventing another night of violence, and to investigate the cause of the disturbance.

It is rumoured that a clockwork automata, similar to a device stolen from government offices several years ago, was seen by several people during the dispute.

This will be the first time that a clockwork device of this nature has been seen on British soil, since the government shelved the Clockwork Project, several years ago.
