That isn't to say muslim males don't have a bit of a habit of doing it, but you're barking up the wrong tree if you think that's who is carrying out the majority of UK attacks
Actually your source shows you wrong.

I don't see anything in the USA Today article that cites a statistic from a credible UK law enforcement agency or some such thing. The statistic is asserted by Jaf Shah who is running a London based charity that mainly deals with victims of acid attacks from South Asia. The assertion is also made on the website of the charity/activist group.
http://www.acidviolence.org

As a rule, I believe activist groups whether they are defined as charities or not, generally skew data in the direction of the narrative they want to present.

It does make sense that black immigrant gangs are using acid attacks because of the lack of available guns. However, that doesn't invalidate my overall argument - that the acid attacks are rising because of an influx of cultures, including Islamic culture, that regularly use such methods.

The USA article also didn't mention anything about acid attacks being de riguer in Victorian England. That may be true also, but it's not what the article you linked to said.

There's one statistic in the article I did find noteworthy...


A 74% jump is significant in such a short period of time and very troubling and it means it's becoming a more accepted form of violence.
It was common in Victorian times, it's the etymology of 'vitriolic abuse', vitriol being the original name for sulphuric acid.

Also, one of the reasons in the spike of attacks is instead of using tear gas in a bar/club that they want to *cough* provide protection for(tear gas is also hard to get like guns) they are skooshing acid around the dance floor to force the owners into coughing up. You then have multiple teary-eyed, wheezy patrons but the point has been made to the bar/club owner. Hence, a spike in the number of individual 'victims' needing treatment but it won't be anywhere near that number of individual 'attacks'.

Good chance that was stolen from remnants of the Alexandria library and the original white cladding and gold cap on the Giza pyramid. It was stated that hand hammered 24k gold instructions were inlaid in the cladding on the pyramid, denoting it's purpose and functional use.

Sorry about straying from the thread but I love history.

I thought this was good advice in the unlikely event on an acid attack. Read the whole article.

1) Use liquids to wash away the acid and do so for about 20 minutes.
2) Don't try to neutralize the acid. It's unlikely anything around will be potent enough.
3) Don't try to remove contact lenses.
4) Remove clothes with acid.
5) Be careful of the puddles formed from dousing acid. They'll burn too.
6) if it's in the eyes, flush the eyes while they're open for 10-20 minutes.
7) Do not let the victim touch their own eyes.
Quote:
If you are the victim of an acid attack or witness one taking place, it’s important to act as quickly as possible to minimise damage to the eyes, skin and surrounding tissues.

Important: make sure the area is safe before treating the victim and cover your hands with something before touching the victim.

..... Or don't live in a shit hole like London.... That's my advice, stay away from the scumbags. Bloody southerners, no respect. You know where you are with a good beating to death with a cricket bat.

And if they don't wanna regulate the sale of it, then it should only be sold in really watered down forms, IMO.
