"Woman seriously injured in acid attack in Blackrock"

"‘Caustic substance’ thrown in woman’s face as she walked in south Dublin on Friday"

Can a caustic substance be an acid?
Bringing my Chemistry knowledge back from the crypt. I was good at it back in my day.
There's sort of scale called the PH scale. Water is at point zero and on one side there's the acids and the other side there's the alkalines.
so the acids might start with lactic acid (milk) then carbonic acid (not sure on this) then acetic acid (in vinegar) then it gets stronger and more dangerous as you go down the scale with Hydrochloric acid, Nitric acid and the very strong stuff Sulphuric acid (car batteries).
Apparently the Alkalines on the other side of the scale are more aggressive than the acids. And (not sure on this) might be found in nettles bee and wasp stings, poisonous snakes and poisonous frogs, jelly-fish etc.
In London they say the attackers used heavy-duty cleaning fluid... kind of academic whether it's alkaline or acidic it attacks the eyes and skin.
So if you are unlucky to suffer such an attack. rush to a source of water and rinse yourself as soon as possible.
Hence my question to all and sundry back a few posts... would pee do any good if there's no water available. :| If it's a matter of minutes or seconds that make a difference and if you and your friends have just come out of the pub. ... just a suggestion.

There is a Muslim minority in China in Xinjiang province (ethnic Uighurs) and in China-proper (the Hui people). In the UK acid attacks started in the Pakistani community. Is this an Islamist attack? Acid attacks tend to target women and are used by abusive men to control women in patriarchal cultures. It doesn't have a pre existing history in Ireland. While Katie Pipers attacker on the UK was not Muslim it started in the Pakistani community in the UK and unfortunately has spread beyond it.
I seem to recall reading that London has become the acid attack capital of the world now. And that males are more affected than females.
Maybe Brexit is a good idea after all:confused:

We should have specific legislation dealing with acid attacks.
Life in prison.....at least. If I was a woman, I think I'd prefer rape over an acid attack.....

These extreme attacks on women should be punished with extreme sentences! :mad:

It's possible but not certain. Unfortunately this sort of attack is the sort to thing other women are capable of doing out of jealousy or men who are rejected trying to make sure that if he can't have her nobody would want her. Or a case of mistaken identity or just a nut job who hates women. The reasons aren't important now, what matters is that the woman gets all the support that she needs. We could speculate about the religious orientation or nationality of the attacker but right now that's not important.
my heart goes out to the victim, however it is important to start talking about the scum who did this crime before it's too late and we turned into London

I think the cops already know.
At this point, they're probably just looking for sufficient evidence to convict.

Justin Barrett is spinning this already. Not an ounce of empathy for the poor woman.

More than 450 acid attacks in London alone last year. That's in just one year!

It amazes me how whenever there is a new terrorist attack or crime by middle eastern/african immigrants (we all know that's who committed this barbaric act) the left think that talking about why it happened or who is responsible shouldn't be allowed(unless of course it's a white male). It's attitudes like that which will cause more and more victims from this brutality for if we don't speak out now and face the problems we will soon be looking like London

There were 450 acid attacks done last year alone in London committed almost entirely by immigrants. However the only time the journal ie decided to show the face of the criminal was the one time it was a white guy London man pleads guilty to acid attack that melted victims' skin and clothes I imagine they will do the same here, like how they media is calling the nigerian gangs terrifying Ballbriggan 'teenage gangs'

We don't know that. Not even slightly.

You are cynically exploiting that poor woman's attack to make a childish political point. Have some respect and common decency.
