I have no words for this. That is disgusting. I am sending big, big vibes for your poor friend and hoping that her eye heals up quickly, and thoroughly.

Nothing yet...she has to keep going to these specialists and having her eye poked and prodded There is blood behind the eye, and the pressure from the shot caused the eyeball to get pushed back..so there is a trauma induced cataract in the eye too It sounds bad, but I hope it turns out okay.
We will know more about her sight once it heals a little more.
The idiots haven't been caught.
And BTW, they aimed it at her face..they were only like 10 feet away.
Well here is the latest...40% chance she will lose her sight in the eye
"It's a little sketchy at this point. Apparently the "driver" had prior convictions. My sister and Adam were pretty sure it was a male in the back passenger seat. So it's possible that it was the guy and the girl is covering because she is underage. Also if it came from the back seat it would seem likely that there were more then two people in the car. Something is fishy. Anyhow, will keep ya posted. But the appointment yesterday with the doctor was not so good. There is a 40% chance she won't recover her sight. And she is going to have to have a bunch of surgeries. Yikes. There is a possibility of a civil suit which could mean she would get a bunch of cash but that is way down the road."
That was what my friend emailed me this morning.
I'll never understand why the law seems to treat an attack so lightly if it was done with a so-called toy, or by schoolkids, or as part of some kind of idiotic initiation. And I also don't get why being underage somehow excuses such a thing. Seventeen is about twice old enough to know right from wrong!
