Dead On This Day May 24

Check Out Those Dead On This Day May 24

Jonathan Wild, English criminal who invented a scheme which allowed him to run one of the most successful gangs of thieves of the era, all the while appearing to be the nation's leading policeman. He manipulated the press and the nation's fears to become the most loved public figure of the 1720s; this love turned to hatred when his villainy was exposed. After his death, he became a symbol of corruption and hypocrisy. He died on this day in 1725

Death is Like Taxes
We all pay the price some day
Lest All Rest In Peace
