No one is born with feelings of hatred toward groups of people for no apparent reason except the fact that they are somehow different from themselves.

The hate comes from within attackers own prejudice, and not from actions of victims. Hate crimes are a result of learned attitudes and behaviors, observed violence toward strangers, being imitated.

Story: It started at 10:25 pm on Thursday night, when a moped carrying two riders pulled up alongside a man riding at a junction in Hackney, east London.

Before the other rider could pull away, the pair threw acid in his face and stole his bike.

Four other acid attacks followed, with at least one victim left with life-changing injuries.

A 16-year-old boy was arrested soon after on suspicion of grievous bodily harm and robbery.

Acid attacks are on the rise. In London from 216 cases reported in 2015 to 454 in 2016 with many remain unknown due to the stigma attached to such attacks or fear of revenge.

That rise is alarming given the severity of the injuries.

Acid not only burns away at the skin but alters the proteins in cells, destroying their structure.

Reconstruction requires years of treatments as well as surgery for the damaged skin to be cut away and replaced with grafts.

Katie Gee was the victim of an acid attack while on a trip to Zanzibar in 2013; her recovery has taken four years and more than 50 surgeries.

Mark van Dongen was attacked with acid in Bristol in 2015, suffering paralysis and burns to 80 per cent of his body. He died from his injuries earlier this year.

While they’re on the rise, acid attacks aren’t new.

Vitriol attacks date back to Victorian Britain, while more recent acid incidents are often associated with so-called “honor attacks” against women in Pakistan and Bangladesh, as well London.

Unlike elsewhere, UK attacks tend to more often target men.

Who commits Hate Crimes?
This story is significant because it illustrates how many hate crime groups are very aware of their rights, yet have no empathy for the rights of other human beings.

This is a consistent theme among all kinds of hate groups.

Many of the leaders of these organized hate groups are intelligent, know their rights and understand the law.

These are people considered dangerous for the impact they have on young people, through propaganda and the internet.

They mainly teach others to hate and give weight to the hateful ideologies of the members of their websites.

The greatest attack risks are typically “lone wolf” sympathizers, but regular site visitors, influenced by the group’s message.

Three gay men were beaten and robbed in October 2010 in Bronx, New York. Their attackers were a gang going by the name of “Latin King Goonies”. The gang leader is serving 14 years in prison.

From the period of 1995 through 2012, SPLC tracking of hate crimes by type.

Racial Hate Crimes:
There has been a long history of racially motivated hate crimes; some were so heartbreaking they served to motivate legislation to change laws and increase punishments to abruptly reduce these horrible crimes.

While racial hate crimes against blacks have been reduced during 2012 through 2014, anti-religious and anti-sexual orientation crimes are on the rise.
There is no rational explanation for using religion as a reason for attacking human beings.
