Case Study 1 - How did Sir John Fielding try to prevent crime in London?

Sir John Fielding

Prepare to "hot-seat" Sir John Fielding about his crime prevention activities. One member of the class prepares to act as Sir John, the others prepare questions. Possible topics:
-What does he hope to achieve by putting out information about crimes and criminals?
-How did he deal with highwaymen?
-What is his relationship with the government?
Not all the questions need be friendly. What is a single magistrate doing setting up his own crime prevention campaign?
