Yeah I kinda thought that.
Shows something is really up with it all when 15 year olds are doing this heck when I was 15 I was still playing with my action man.

What? Why would I have to be "at war" with someone? Do you really think I and that gangbanger or 2 junkies with knives are "at war"? Do I have to be "at war" with that guy who comes in the gas station to rob it, pointing a gun at everyone in the place?
Where the hell do you get these ideas that I have to be at war with anyone to want to be able to defend myself against superior numbers or odds?
Your overconfidence in hand to hand skills is going to get you killed.

Stalkers and heal exes have been disfiguring their victims for decades. It's not new thing.

Guys who did it will have form since childhood. Delinquent asshats.

"An eye for an eye ..." is a paraphrase of Hammurabi's Code, a collection of 282 laws inscribed on an upright stone pillar. The code was found by French archaeologists in 1901 while excavating the ancient city of Susa, which is in modern-day Iran.

The lack of description of the suspects should tell every one with a modicum of common sense who the perpetrators of these crimes are.

I saw a doc on it once, favorite form of punishment against women in some (edit: Hindu) countries. Disfiguring their faces with acid so nobody will marry them.

Particularly insidious because its a non lethal attack, extremely painful, leaving lifetime scars.

You're right. What asshats.

In general, I agree with you, but anytime a perp I under 18 their identity is protected by law. so you maybe don't want to read too much into it at this stage.

Thinking of violence obviously gives you a hard on, just keep stroking the glock until it blows eh.

It takes an especially evil and cowardly person to do something like this, unfortunately there's kids out there that just don't give a f***

Horrid accounts here in this article about the rise of acid attacks in London.

www.bbc.co.uk...

"There's no specific offence regarding acid attacks" This needs to change it is only GBH people can be done for.

Mentions evidence of gangs switching from knives to acid...
What a fecked up world we live in
.


Actually there is a specific offence.

The Offences Against the Persons Act (1861) section 29 which is still on the statute books specifically identifies that the use of corrosive liquids with intent to burn, maime, disfigure, disable or cause grievous bodily harm is punishable by a sentence of up to life imprisonment. You can't get more specific than that, and the punishment is the harshest available under British law. There are plenty of other laws which apply to the use of any item if carried with intent to harm.

The issue is enforcement.

Yeah looking like they were robbing folk as they did it.

Looks like robbers have been increasing using acid.

Attacks in London in 2016-17
Crimes using "corrosive substances"
208
Violence against the person
38
caused serious injuries, 1 was fatal
118 robberies
10 of which left victims with serious injuries
2 sexual offences, including 1 rape

www.bbc.co.uk...





Here's the stats going back to 2005.






The number of admissions to hospitals as a result of attacks using a corrosive substance, such as sulphuric acid, has almost doubled in the last 10 years, new data reveals. Amid rising concerns about acid attacks, statistics obtained by the Guardian from the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) show that in 2004-05 there were 55 stays in hospital caused by them in England. But provisional data for the most recent period, 2014-15, shows this has risen to 106 admissions.

ETA;

Two acid attacks are carried out in Britain EVERY DAY as children use deadly liquids in playground disputes and demand grows to ban sales of chemicals to under 18s
London alone saw more than 450 acid attacks last year - with more around UK
Experts say the true scale of the problem could be much higher than that
Police have said victims are reluctant to come forward over fear of reprisals
Campaigners have called for tougher restrictions on youngsters buying acid

How can you ban bleach? you have to prove intent to use it.
Pubs use caustic soda all the time to clean pipes acids are used in everyday life they can't ban it all.




I could kill you with a spoon.

Should we ban all spoons ?



I can kill you with your own finger.

What do we ban then?

They are still common in parts of India and Malaysia. RT did a show on it once.
