Three men in Sadiq Khan`s London, and a fourth in Wolverhampton have been arrested after a horrific acid attack on a 3 year old boy. The child was with his mother in a store when a pink liquid was thrown on him resulting in serious burns to his face and arms. As it turns out, the 3 year old is the child of one of the men arrested.
Acid attacks are fairly common in the UK and especially London where the city has seen a dramatic demographics switch. Acid has become the weapon of choice for gangs as well as those seeking revenge on others as these attacks carry a lesser sentence than using a knife. As for knives themselves, the UK is currently engaged in a war on knives to try and stop knife violence.
