Acid attacks on the rise in UK

Quote:


Where are acid attacks being carried out?
London has emerged as a hot spot for acid attacks in recent years, with more than half of incidents taking place in the capital.

The number of cases more than doubled from less than 200 in 2014 to 431 in 2016, with Scotland Yard focusing on specific parts of the city.

Newham, in East London, had three times more acid attacks than the next highest borough, with almost 400 of London’s 1,500 reports over the last five years happening there.

The borough – which includes Stratford’s Olympic Park but also more deprived areas such as West Ham, Plaistow and Forest Gate – borders Hackney which also saw a spate of attacks in the summer.

Well, on the bright side the leftists are taking themselves out of the gene pool voluntarily...sadly that so many Europeans are such cucks that their women are starting to run foreigners. Unfortunately a number of them are ending up as second, third wives in beekeepers outfits.

The next time an acid thrower kills over 50 and wounds more than 200 from over 1,000 feet away THEN you can make an intelligent comparison to acid attacks and attacks with semi automatic rifles.

Until then you just sound stupid.

Due to the problems of obtaining guns and the high risk of very long prison sentences for merely possessing them, it appears that criminal gang members are now favouring this method of attack, which until recently only carried relatively short prison sentences for the offence. However the government is now increasing the traiffs for these acts of violence

The idiotic, stupid, ignorant comments about criminals who get around laws are getting so absurd that Im curious if ANYBODY takes them seriously. Of if everybody recognizes them for the bullshit, self-serving, hysterical, hyperbolic rhetoric that they are?

Why do we have tough DUI laws? There are people who drink and drive - there are people who drink and drive and kill people. So, should we just listen to all those people screaming 'but they're coming to take our cars!' and get rid of DUI laws?

Why do we have laws against robbing banks? There are still criminals who find ways to do it and rob banks anyway. Should we pay attention to all those people who cry out, 'but they're coming for our safety deposit boxes!' and get rid of those laws?

We have laws that punish people very harshly for sexually molesting children. There are still people who break those laws and abuse and molest children. Should we listen to the people who are moaning, 'but they're taking away my parental rights!' and forget about those laws?

It's just IGNORANT and TUNNEL-VISIONED UNINFORMED to think that people want to disarm the entire nation of all guns (well, some might - but the vast overwhelming majority do not. I do not.). But I would applaud ignoring the hysterical whimpering of the right wing's, 'they're coming to take all my guns' and confiscating and giving harsh penalties to any private citizen with assault weapons. The only reason these weapons exist is to assault. Assault is illegal. As they have no other purpose, they should not be in the hands of private citizens. Just as private citizens can't have dynamite, anthrax, plutonium, etc. etc. etc. It is AGAINST THE GOOD INTERESTS OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

And people who don't like it can suck my left tit and get over it.
