    Girl, 15, torched in gruesome attack by love rival who told her 'You won't be pretty anymore'

    A 15-year-old girl was set on fire using white spirit in a street ambush by a love rival who was jealous over a kiss.
    The victim was today named by friends as Lucy Goldsmith.
    Her attacker convinced another girl - who did not know of her attack plan - to call Lucy on her mobile phone and invite her to meet up, according to one of Lucy's schoolfriends.
    When Lucy arrived at the rendezvous, the attacker allegedly leapt from the bushes and doused her in the highly flammable liquid hidden in a Coca-Cola bottle.
    Police say that as she flicked a lighter, the girl told Lucy: 'You won't look pretty anymore.'

    her attacker was with a baby in a pram at the time. a 19 year-old woman is being held on suspicion of attempted murder.

    words fail me. :furious::furious::furious:

    Tragic. They should do the same to the attacker.

    The attacker will be walking the streets in less than a year, by my calculation of current sentences in Britain! :furious:

    Reading on these pages how a father beats his son to death, two girls murdered as they walk down a street, etc. I wonder how long God is going to allow this. It's the only thing that comes to my mind right now. Other than I want to protect my children even more.

    I'd appreciate it. Guys can get away with scars. Stuff like that always hits girls worse.

    She will serve some time then out to live her life while the 15 year old is scarred for life if she is (un)lucky enough to survive.

    This is where the crazy muslim countries have the right idea. This monster should be executed TODAY as a warning to any other foolish people out there.

    How awful. My prayers are with this poor girl right now. It will be months of dealing with the physical repercussions of this crime, and who knows how long after that to deal with the mental/psychological horror of it all.


    Floh,
    What is a pram? Is that like a baby sling?
