    Acid attack on three-year-old boy: Three men arrested.

    Post by papa_umau on Mon 23 Jul 2018, 12:25 pm

    Three men have been arrested after a three-year-old was seriously injured in a suspected acid attack.

    The boy was in a pushchair when he was "deliberately attacked" at Home Bargains in Worcester at 14:15 BST on Saturday.

    West Mercia Police said the men, aged 22, 25 and 26, were arrested in London on suspicion of conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm.

    Doctors discharged the boy from hospital on Sunday afternoon.

    He was treated for serious burns to his arm and face and the "long-term implications" of the his injuries are unknown, the force said.

    Ch Supt Mark Travis said the motive for the attack is so far "unclear".

    Well, if these two guys ARE guilty of this crime, ( which will be established in a proper trial in the future ), then the severity of the punishment should be decided by the trail judge at sentencing.

    Of course, if they are found guilty of this awful crime, they should suffer the full penalty that our laws prescribe.

    Any opinions on this from The Robsters will be interesting to read.

    Apparently the mother was the target; she had been moved away from her partner for protection.

    Whoever was the original target, throwing acid into a child's pram was a despicable thing to do and if the people in custody are proven to have done this they are due a very long period in jail.

    You are right HG, and I hope they can bring a successful conviction too.

    One of the weak things about our justice system is that it is always the judges that lay down the sentence, while in America if a trial comes to their high court it is a jury that decides how severe the sentence should be.
