Yes of course., because pouring acid over the faces of your own children and partner is a great British tradition that goes back centuries, almost up there with dancing around the maypole and foxhunting. 

I thought I'd revisit this after your claim in the other thread that acid attacks are somehow islamic.

Here are some of the countries where they happen frequently:

India - 80% Hindu

Uganda - 84% Christian

South Africa - 78% Christian

Cambodia - 98% Buddhist

UK, one of the worst in the world at one point - 52% atheist, 35% Christian*

Vietnam - 73% folk religion

*According to data London's Metropolitan Police, a demographic breakdown of known suspects in London attacks for the period (2002–2016) showed White Europeans comprising 32% of suspects, Black Caribbeans 38% and Asian 6%.

Its also not usually a crime done by a white offender. This is because there are areas of the world where immigrants come from who have a culture of acid attacks.

That's my point.

That's worldwide. I think also the victims are predominately male, not female. I was surprised to find most of the perps of acid attacks in the UK (60%) are European, probably Brits.

I was surprised to find that on checking @Setton's and others references, yes, it does seem to be a British problem. Not going back centuries, but probably at least a century.

It seems I was wrong about a century- more like two centuries:

The issue of acid attacks is linked initially to industry. During the Industrial Revolution, acid was manufactured in vast quantities to treat metals and cotton. It became a weapon of choice back then.

In 1832, a journal described it as a “stain on the national character”.

The first recorded acid attack sentencing was on a 21-year-old man in 1833 who attacked a fellow worker while he slept.

Police search Thames for body of chemical attack suspect Abdul Ezedi

Police have begun searching an area of the River Thames for the body of the Clapham chemical attack suspect.

Abdul Ezedi is believed to be dead after going into the Thames after he was seen on CCTV leaning over the railings of Chelsea Bridge in west London on the night a woman and two girls was attacked with a corrosive substance, the Metropolitan police said.

A police boat was circling between Vauxhall and Chelsea bridges on Saturday morning.

The Metropolitan Police have found two bodies in the River Thames in their search for Abdul Ezedi but neither is the suspected Clapham chemical attacker.

Specialist diving teams were scouring the river after detectives said the 35-year-old may have jumped into the water after being seen on CCTV leaning over the railings of Chelsea Bridge in West London.

One body was recovered near HMS Belfast and Tower Bridge, at 10.13am, and another man’s body near Limehouse, east London at 10.39am, less than half an hour later.

The deaths are being treated as unexpected and police are working to confirm the men’s identities and inform their next of kin.

 A man and his parents have been jailed after his wife was forced to take anti-diabetes medication and doused in a corrosive substance, leaving her in a persistent vegetative state from which she will never recover.

Ambreen Fatima Sheikh, described as “intelligent, bright, ambitious and happy-go-lucky”, was 30 when she was given the anti-diabetes drug glimepiride after being brought to the UK from Pakistan after an arranged marriage.

Oh great, then the attacker can shoot the victim instead.

How long do you think you have between someone approaching you with a bottle of acid and it hitting your eyes?

When a serious criminal offence occurs I think the government should suspend all legal protections for the offender.

And offer a £1 million price to whoever gets them first.

And that's how you end up with people (probably some posters here) lynching random Asian men because they can't tell the difference...

In the meantime we need the death penalty back.

aha but you might be hung for a crime you didn't commit! It's possible.

Bring back capital punishment- I'll take the risk

Cookie's suggestion is to suspend all legal protection for the perpetrator. In other words, allow vigilante justice.

The majority of people in the UK who would engage with this are a bit thick. I wouldn't have confidence they'd target the actual perpetrator and not anyone they think looks a bit similar.

In this specific example (and I still don't rule out some poor sod with a birthmark being lynched...)

You were talking about serious crimes in general. Don't try to weasel away from the fact your idea is idiotic.

No its not.

I would vote for all criminals sentences to two or more years in prison to be branded with the letter F for fugitive on their foreheads. Then release them all for a yearly purge event with prizes for those who get them. Legalised and targeted societal violence would do wonders for the crime rate.

It turns society against them.
