WELCOME TO BRITAIN

By Pete Moore On July 22nd, 2018

A three-year-old boy has been seriously injured in a suspected acid attack in a shop, police said.

The boy was “deliberately attacked” at Home Bargains in Worcester at 14:15 BST on Saturday, West Mercia Police said.

Citizens are reminded not to say unkind things on twitter.

  1. Absolutely disgusting. Even though acid attacks originated in Britain to deliberately attack an innocent infant is taking this evil to another level. The animals who did this will certainly face justice from their wingmates upon conviction.

    ???

  2. Just reiterating police priorities, Paul. Just doing my bit.

  3. Well Pete, as West Mercia plod have scooped a 39 year old in connection with the attack it would seem you’ve got the Peeler’s priorities confused?

  4. animals

  5. This one makes the angels weep. But the US is just as bad. I read a story of a 3 year old beaten to death by his parents for wetting the bed. How can such things happen?!

  6. Unfortunately not the first time it’s happened:

  7. I suspect this is some sort of “feud” or revenge attack a aimed at hurting the mother. When convicted jail the perpetrators for life, no ifs no buts no “ mitigation “. No excuse ever for attacking a small child.

  8. I suspect it’s a personal attack too Colm.

  9. Even though acid attacks originated in Britain ……

    As Paul shall confirm, that was in 1800-something and acid has since fallen out of favour with the natives. Fortunately(?) an influx of enrichers has brought the acid-attack industry off its knees so that police now have plenty of hours to book for such attacks – if they’re not arresting people for ‘offensive tweets’.

  10. Indeed Allan, acid attacks fell out of favour in your own part of Briarian to be replaced with the blade and the infamous ‘Glasgow Smile’, very previlant in the Glasgow gang wars of the 1920’s

    Acid seeme to have made a comeback recently, apparently as it’s easier for criminals to use and dispose of. Prominant but certainly not exclusive to those criminals from a ‘greatest gift to an undeserving world’ background.

    The cops didn’t arrest anyone for ‘offensive tweets’ in this case. They arrested a 39 year old in connection with the attack.

    Satisfied?

  11. Paul – people are being arrested for tweets and the police are devoting a lot of time and money to patrolling this dangerous activity:

  12. So the Peelers have now scooped a further three man in relation to the attack. In Pete’s old manor no less.

    Yeah, I know. But what about Twitter blah blah blah.

  13. From the photos it looks like the lads might be “Irish” tourists. Accompanied by their spouses, children, dogs, goats and horses. Staying semi-permanently in caravans being hauled by Range Rovers. They were probably “collecting” some things they could then take to the local car boot sale when the child’s parent objected to their “shelf-to-pocket” appropriating.

  14. Yeah, I know. But what about Twitter blah blah blah.

    People really are being arrested by police for ‘tweets’. There’s no ‘blah blah’

  15. No there is a blah blah blah.

    They way you and the Petes of this world bang on you’d think that Peelers do nothing but monitor Twitter. They’ve arrested three in connection with this attack. Do you consider that a sufficient response?

    Yeah Eddie, ‘probably’

  16. They way you and the Petes of this world bang on you’d think that Peelers do nothing but monitor Twitter.

    No – they also eat doughnuts, and drive about in cars. It’s almost unnerving to see the faith that an Irish Republican has in the integrity of British police

  17. So they haven’t arrested three in connection with this attack?

    Righty oh then.
