I'm waiting for the police surgeon's report for more details

Abberline:
[about Polly's murder]
I'm waiting for the police surgeon's report for more details.
Sir Charles Warren:
[sits at his desk while smoking a cigarette]
I see. Well, one thing's for certain; an Englishman didn't do it.
[Warren pulls up a newspaper clipping of American Natives]

Sir Charles Warren:
Maybe one of these Red Indians wandered into Whitechapel and indulged his natural inclinations.
[Abberline looks doubtfully at the drawing]

Abberline:
With all due respect, sir, I believe this was done by someone with at least a working knowledge of dissection. An educated man, such as a doctor...
Sir Charles Warren:
[quickly interjects]
An educated man? That's preposterous! No well-bred man would do this!
[pause]

Sir Charles Warren:
Probably a tradesman or a butcher...
Abberline:
[nods]
A tradesman is a possibility, sir, yes...
[pause]

Abberline:
But there's a strong indication against it. There was a sprig of grapes under her body.
Sir Charles Warren:
What are you driving at?
Abberline:
No one in Whitechapel, no matter what their trade, could afford grapes. Obviously, they were given to her by the killer. It follows that he must be someone with money.

Transcript:
At least one of her organs was removed.
I'm waiting for the police surgeon's report
for more details.
I see.
One thing's for certain,
an Englishman didn't do it.
Maybe one of these Red Indians...
...wandered into Whitechapel
and indulged his natural inclinations.
With all due respect, sir...
...I believe this was done by someone with
at least a working knowledge of dissection.
-An educated man, such as a doctor--
-An educated man? That's preposterous.
No well-bred man would do this.
Probably a tradesman or a butcher.
A tradesman is a possibility, sir.
But there's a strong indication against it.
There was a sprig of grapes
under her body.
What are you driving at?
No one in Whitechapel, no matter
what their trade, could afford grapes.
Obviously,
they were given to her by the killer.
It follows that he must be
someone with money.
What about the Jews? A Jew butcher?
Or a Jew tailor might have money.
Plenty of them in Whitechapel.
Sir, for the sake of public safety
in general...
...l'd like to be careful about spreading
the rumor it might be a Jew.
I know your reputation for making guesses
that turn out to be right.
Someone told me
you claim to dream the answers.
Frankly, it doesn't matter to me
what your methods are.
But be certain you don't proceed
without proof. Is that clear?
Of course, sir.
Personally, I don't care. The fewer
pinch-pricks on the streets, the better.
But the sooner you find this butcher
or tailor...
...the sooner we can all celebrate
your promotion.
Keep me informed.
Every cellar, every stable. We'll find him.
It's the bleeding Jews. Let's kill them!
