This is an Enricher vs. Enricher incident with a twist: the victim was a tiny child who had absolutely no idea what was happening to her.
Our Danish correspondent Signe has translated a newspaper report about the affair. Here’s what she says by way of introduction.
Along with Muslim immigration, acid attacks seem to be on the rise. In uncivilised cultures, where a girl’s only recognised asset is her sex appeal and ability to carry babies, attacking her appearance is obviously very effective.
As usual, the newspapers (among which only two thought this extremely violent attack on a small child was relevant for the public) do not find it appropriate to mention the ethnic origin of the perpetrators. However, I think every single reader has formed an opinion on this matter despite the lack of information:

Boy gang wreaks havoc in Copenhagen
Acid bomb against little girl- - - - - - - - -
By LARS FOGT — Sunday August 16, 2009
Copenhagen is plagued with a boy gang that uses acid bombs. Yesterday, a little girl was burned by acid in a playground in Nørrebro.
A little girl was Sunday at 6 in the afternoon admitted to Rigshospitalet with significant burn wounds after acid had been poured over her at a playground in Nørrebro.
The girl, who is only a few years old, had crawled into the playground at the corner of Guldbergs Plads and Tibirkegade, when what appeared to be a water balloon exploded and drenched her with alkaline fluid.
“The girl began to scream. The fluid had covered her legs, which was significantly burned. Just imagine if it had hit her eyes, then she would have been blind today,” says the spokesperson for the central police in Copenhagen, Søren Viborg.
This evening the girl was admitted to Rigshospitalet, where her legs are being drizzled with water for eight hours to neutralise the damage. The fire department has been out to spray the playground this evening.
Copenhagen Police say that they are currently plagued with a boy gang that experiments with acid bombs — and the police assume that this is the latest example. There have been incidents earlier with acid bombs in Nørrebroparken.
“We must put a stop to this unpleasantness or someone will get seriously hurt. This is not something to play with,” says Søren Viborg.
Signe adds this note:
Meanwhile, the newspapers reported extensively on an incident in which a man beat his 13-year old daughter to death. The media and police found it imperative to mention that the family is “pure Danish”. Well, thanks for reporting that it was a case of insanity, because everybody I talked to could have sworn that it was another case of cultural enrichment. When do the media realize that they have to start consistently telling the truth about who causes most of the violence in our country — and delve into the motives?
As I write, Danish politicians are debating whether or not to ban the burqa — a nasty mobile prison, but still only a symptom of our demise. Please, start addressing the core of the problem.
