    I can relate to how scary that sound is.

    When I was doing welding, I learned to wear earplugs after a piece of slag flew up and landed in my ear canal. There is NOTHING you can do short of pouring water in your ear to stop the sound and the sensation is.... indescribable.

    What leads you to believe that? I read the article, and while it's certainly possible, there was nothing that particularly pointed to race being a factor in the attack.

    Is this the same attacker who threw acid onto the face of the woman in Mesa, Arizona on Sept 4th?

    I don't know if this is racist or not as some of our amatuer Sherlocks have alluded to but this is so bizarre. When I first read someone threw acid onto a woman's face I just assumed it was a male.

    Racist or not this person is sick in the head.

    if an ugly white woman did the same thing to an attractive black woman you don't think Reverend Al et al would claim it was racist?

    I actually thought the same thing - not a baseless knee jerk reaction, either.
    But around the time of this attack those in the media was discussing the attack on black children decades ago - where a white manager pour acid into the swimming pool they were in.

    A good detective would have questioned this as a motive, as well - because it's illegal to commit a crime based on race-hatred. If they find the perpetrator, and she's a member of the black panthers or something, that might alter her possible sentence and give a much harsher sentence.

    leave no stone unturned.

    Because in our judicial system it *matters* - a lot.
    Any stances that someone takes an ultimately be used against them if they committed a crime.

    Example: If I'm staunchly and openly against turtles - and my actions one day *accidentally* lead to the death of 100 turtles in a pet store. It's possible that my open and firm stance against turtles might be used as evidence that I *intentionally* perpetrated the crime.

    A person's thought-process *is* motive and can make or break a case against someone.

    I'm sure he would, but he wouldn't necessarily be right. I'm not saying this crime wasn't motivated by race, but so far I haven't seen any evidence that proves it is.
