The suspects, who were still at large, came from nowhere sprayed fluid and then lit the poor man on fire, according to news reports. Whatever the motive of the suspects, what they did is simply unacceptable. The three males should be dealt with accordingly.
With this disturbing incident, people who are living within the vicinity are having thoughts if it still safe to walk at night on that area.
This is not the first time that such a vicious attack has happened. Many people who belong to ethnic minority communities have lost their lives in senseless acts of violence prompted by no other reason except for the colour of their skin.
