Man attacked by pitbulls
“My wife’s death was horrific and pointless,” the elderly plaintiff said outside a court in southern Germany on Tuesday. The man was speaking during a pause in the trial of two people whose dog mauled his wife to death on the street in Baden-Württemberg last May. The 72-year-old woman was walking down a street in the small town of Sigmaringen when the dog broke free from its collar and launched itself at her. The Kangal, a breed considered dangerous in Germany, pulled the pensioner to the ground before repeatedly biting her head and throat. Although a medic arrived at the scene, he was unable to treat the woman, as the dog continued its attack. Only a bullet from the gun of a police officer put an end to the attack - and the dog’s life. But by then it was too late to save the woman. Prosecutors have charged the animal’s owners with negligent manslaughter, arguing that its living conditions were unsatisfactory. Officers who arrived at the house … [Read more...] about Does Germany have a problem with aggressive attack dogs?
AN acid attack victim has damaged eyesight and permanent facial scars after a teenager threw corrosive liquid in her face. Afiya Begum was targeted near her home in Birmingham by a thug who still hasn't been caught. The 26-year-old stopped breathing and suffered painful burns to her face, shoulder and neck. One month on from the random attack she has relived the terrifying day she was rushed to hospital in pain. She told Birmingham Live: "I was on the phone when I came back into the building. Then a man tapped me on the shoulder and I screamed and dropped my phone onto the floor. "Then he threw a whole glass of acid at me." The attacker then took her phone and fled, but fortunately Afiya made it to the second floor, where her friend was. He splashed water on her face before driving her to hospital.

She said she had seen a man watching … [Read more...] about Woman, 26, suffers severe burns after having acid thrown in her face in random attack outside her Birmingham home
SINISTER video footage shows a ruthless paedophile prowling for child victims in a Russian city. Soon afterwards the “respectable” father of four was detained after eluding police for more than a decade. The evil 55 year old has been jailed for 20 years for multiple sex attacks on both girls and boys. Police admit the true number of his young victims will never be known. “He was caught minutes before another attack,” revealed a law enforcement source in Perm region which he terrorised for more than a decade. The “perfect family man” followed children into the doorways of apartment blocks and threatened them with murder if they resisted his brutal sex attacks. He preyed on children in small towns across the region. He was found guilty of five specimen counts but police say there were more attacks, some too long ago to prosecute under Russia’s statute of limitations. In 2016 he sexually assaulted two ten year old girls at a block of flats in Perm … [Read more...] about Chilling moment serial paedophile is spotted looking for next child victim during ten-year reign of terror on Russia’s streets
BROTHERS who were among the first Brits to receive an ASBO in 2003 have been jailed at the same time. Tyler Williams was just 13 when he and 10-year-old brother Shamen had their first police mugshots taken after committing a series of vicious crimes in Folkestone, Kent. Now 15 years on, Tyler has been jailed for six years and two months, Shamen was locked up for three years and their little brother Brandon received four-and-a-half years in youth custody. Neighbours believe the brothers have "made a mockery" of the behavioural order as they have "committed even more crimes", with the help of younger brother Brandon, 19. Tyler Williams, now 28, and Brandon were jailed at Maidstone Crown Court for setting their Pitbull crosses, Lola and Sarge, on three people, leaving one victim with an unusually severe injury on December 28 2016. Shamen, now 25, attacked a man with a clawhammer during a burglary in Kent on November 21 last year. The Sunday People reported Tyler and … [Read more...] about Brothers’ 15-year reign of terror ends with jail after pair were among the first Brits to receive ASBOs in 2003
