104 acid attacks in the first five months of 2018 but nobody got hurt.  Except maybe the blind guys.  On the plus side that number was down from the same period in 2017 :tu:

What are people thinking?  Why would anyone throw acid on a delivery person, or even want to hurt them for that matter?

To rob them. In certain countries acid attacks are fairly frequent.  Usually someone saving the families honor from a terrible daughter or wife by disfiguring her for life.

So, you take away the guns, then you take away the knives and bows & arrows, and now access to acid has to be regulate, then screw drivers and fire place pokers and scripto knives/box cutters, razor blades .....    When we just start making people responsible for their actions in a way that does not bread more violence?  Too much control is as bad as no control.

P.S.  I am still disgruntled about not being able to get a 20 lb bag of powdered sulfur for my lawn to keep the bugs down and fertilize.  Ever since the Oklahoma Federal building got bombed by some whack job we can only buy powdered sulfur in 1 lb bags for 5 buck a lb.  Did it stop people from making bombs?  No.

People are accountable for their actions.

How can sulphur be illegal while at the same time you can walk into Walmart and buy gun powder?

Gun powder makes plants grow better than just plain old sulphur lol.

When they get caught and are not related to someone with undue influence.

Good question, but it isn't illegal, just illegal to buy in large quantities same as gunpowder.

I put the grounds in my compost but it does not keep ticks and fleas at bay.  Sulfur does.

I got my information from someone in this thread.  I guess I could scroll back and point the posts out, someone saying no one is allowed to defend themselves in the U.K.

Thank you for explaining it.

Did it make it much harder for them to build those bombs? Yes. 

Do you also disagree with locking the cockpit door on flights? Or metal detectors/xray machines and liquid limits? Each of those vulnerabilities has only been used once and we are all inconvenienced as a result.

No, it did not.  I am not sure the Timothy McVey was even the right person to prosecute and I don't trust what we were told about how the bomb was made because of other news items that were used before he was captured and prosecuted that were given to the press by the FBI, who knew who made the bomb, just like they did with the unibomber. 

In both cases the FBI leaked that it was middle eastern terrorists and both times it was not.  So, why would they do that unless maybe they encouraged those off balance people to make the bombs so they could get the U.S. citizens afraid of middle easterners.  Both of those things happened before 2001.  Yeah, it sounds like I am into conspiracy, but I question everything and when the news blasts everywhere that a middle eastern person was seen at the scene before the bombing and they got their information from the FBI, who already knew who McVey and the Unibomber were, what would you think?

The 1993 WTC attack occurred before 1995.
