Most people will know about the cowardly and vile acids attacks which have plagued London over the last year-or-two.
For those who don’t, then some criminals basically decided that the best way to steal the property of hard-working members of the public, was to throw acid into their faces in an outrageous display of cowardly violence.
Well, one of these cowards has just been sentenced to 10 years in jail for his callous and utterly evil crimes. Many would have seen the disturbing images on the news, of victims pleading for people to help them just after they had acid sprayed into their faces.
The individuals responsible seemed to specifically target motorcyclists in their campaign of gut-wrenching violence and disgusting behaviour.
The Judge in the hearing, Judge Lucas told Derryck John, 17 from Croydon South London: “Your actions on the evening of July 13th 2017 were despicable and cowardly.
“you and your accomplice chose to attack members of the public who were going about their lawful business.
“These were grave crimes. You attacked members of the public with what appears to have been an acid at the strongest scale of acids.
“You have not revealed the name of your accomplice or the precise nature of the corrosive fluid used or where you and your accomplice obtained it”.
A total of FIVE separate victims, all on mopeds, were targeted in during a 90-minute reign of pure evil through the streets of London in July 2017.
Food delivery rider Jabed Hussain, 32, who works for UberEATS, was on his way home when he had his moped stolen and his face sprayed with liquid at around 10.25pm at traffic lights on Hackney Road.
“I’m too scared to go back to work,” he told the Press Association at the time. “I’m really scared. I don’t know what to do. My wife, she’s scared. My family’s scared. They were asking me to leave that job, but I love that job.
Colleagues in the Metropolitan Police have done a great job of bringing this ‘individual’ before the Courts. It’s obvious that this criminal thought that he would get away with his vile crimes.
Whilst it is a shame that his evil partner in crime is still out there, he/she will have to spend the rest of their lives looking over their shoulder, as the Met won’t stop looking for him/her.
The individuals who commit these sorts of crimes, clearly have no respect for themselves, their parents or humanity in general.
You can only imagine the levels of shame that their actions must have now brought upon their families, and you cannot start to comprehend the effect that this sort of crime has on the victims and their families as well.
What a sad example of humanity these criminals are. Whilst their victims worked as many hours as possible in order to provide for their families, these cretins saw fit to completely ruin their victims’ lives in order to make a few hundred quid.
Instead of ruining the lives of hardworking Londoners, why not just get a job themselves and actually become a decent human being?
In my own humble opinion, choosing to become a criminal, and doing as you please when you please is easy. Earning a living, and actually holding down a job requires self discipline, self respect and a respect for others.
All attributes which these criminals will never understand.
