I’ve spoken about this topic before.
Adele Bellis, 26, from Suffolk was attacked when Anthony Riley arranged for acid to be thrown over her face in 2014, sustaining life-changing injuries.
She lost an ear in the brutal attack and was left partially bald, suffering serious burns to her face, neck and arm, and is still undergoing treatment today.
Either more assholes are playing with their chemistry sets than ever before, or else it’s just being reported more often. Either way, it’s a disgusting feature of modern life.
In the past, I think I’ve advocated a return to an older time, when “an eye for an eye” was considered a just punishment. Now I’m starting to think that we need to go back even further, to when the chemistry major would first suffer the torment he inflicted on someone else, and then be slowly immersed in a vat of boiling oil. I don’t remember who exactly came up with this excellent punishment, but I think it was either the Chinese or Japanese.
It’s not going medieval on someone; it’s going pre-medieval on their horrible asses. Maybe these toads would hold back a little, what with that prospect of retribution hanging over their heads. And by the way: the punishment would be visited on both the actual acid-thrower, and whoever caused it to happen.
Feel free to disagree with me in Comments, but you’d better have a good argument.
