New police figures reveal that the U.K. is averaging at least 15 barbaric acid attacks a week.
The figures, first reported by The Mirror, show a total of 2,602 reported attacks from January 2015 to May of this year, averaging out to 15 per week. In comparison, there were only 100 total attacks reported from 2007 to 2011.
Stunningly, nearly 75% of such attacks have been carried out in London, a city often praised by the Left for its multiculturalism and tolerance.
And the figures actually reflect a sunnier outlook than the reality of the situation, since four police forces neglected to provide data regarding acid attacks when it was requested of them. Still, Acid Survivors Trust International (ASTI) found the U.K. to have one of the highest rates of attacks per capita in the world.
