There have recently been a numerous amount of acid attacks in east London. This has caused some members of the public to feel unsafe and threatened to come out of their houses. I believe our community should not feel that they are in danger of being attacked, however the situation with these acid attacks has caused them to feel unsafe, If this continues it could lead to many more disastrous happenings. if we ban acid our community will feel much more safe as they are aware that any acid substances are not in reach for those who plan to use it with the wrong intention. A couple suspects who have caused an acid attack have yet to be prosecuted. These incidents have caused victims of the attacks to feel depressed. these acid attacks have caused both emotional and physical pain.
“When I went to the hospital, they had to jet-wash me with water to get the acid off,” said Mukhtar. “It was excruciating pain. I was screaming like a baby. I’m petrified. I don’t know what’s going to happen. I’m going to be scarred for life. I’m emotionally wrecked. I’m in continuous pain.”
"I'm in a really bad way. I'm going to be scarred for life. I can't walk properly, I can't hear properly, I can't sleep", he said
These sources are proof of the ways in which victims feel after being attacked unexpectedly. Although we cannot completely ban acid as it is a resource to those who use it for the right intention because it is part of their job. My suggestion is that acid should only be sold to permit holders who have proof that they are allowed to buy acid and that they have no intention of causing any harm. I believe that this system will allow the public to feel more safe and equality within the community will rise again slowly but surely.
DON'T BE RANCID, LET'S BAN ACID!!
