Knockout Game---2 dead

I'm surprised this hasn't shown up before. Or at least I didn't see it:

http://news.awfbase.com/content/knoc...-being-punched

Fwiw, another site claims the story is a hoax. http://www.theepochtimes.com/n3/3673...fake/?photo=2p

Whether this story is true or not I find it disturbing that no one seems to say anything against this behavior.
Anyone who punches a 60 year old woman deserves to get shot.
Perhaps if gangs of white youths were doing it then Jesse and Al would get involved and condemn it.
Might even get Barry involved.
Reverse racism seems to be accepted by the news media and their masters.
If I ever see it happen then it will be on every liberal news channel around the country.

You may want to limit your caffeine before you rant

The "knock out game" is sickening, almost impossible to defend against (most are sucker punches from alongside or behind) and difficult to retaliate against - as the perpetrator immediately flees.

However, to date (from the videos posted on social media sites and as reported in the press), race seems to have no part in it. Neither does politics for that matter.

Not much scares me, but this knock out game does, I'm 60 and live and work in the hood, although my neighbor hood is nice, there's still a mixed race contingent to it, most older and retired, but at my age my wife and I are prime targets.
Having had a serious closed head injury in the past one punch would kill me.....

Are you blind? A fool? Race has had EVERYTHING to do with the 'game'.

17 rounds of 115gr 9mm +p+ bullets would put an end to such foolishness.

You going to have to grow that mustache longer and wrap it around your head to cushion it!!

But seriously, it really is a scary thing. Even if the punch itself did not do great harm, the fall to the concrete or ground could kill you depending on how you fell. All I can say is that if this happens to me, they better hope I am out when I fall, because things will get lively if I can still move my hands. I am sure these urban youth can run fast, but Clark Kent fast, I doubt.

The game is sick it makes me mad that people would do this to innocent people, and they usually pray on the weak, older men, women, etc.... I am a 24 year old black male, athletic build so I'm sure if they had to pick between me and my 74 year old grandpa they'd choose him..... In my dream world they'd try me and the knockout would fail And I'd have the chance to give them a nice one on one old school ass kicking until the cops show up.... Now is the whole gang wants to jump in to knock me out, hopefully I'd be able to order some coroners for them.

That story is a hoax. It's posted on a non-news site. There's no timeline or location. Try to confirm it with a Google search. Not a single listing on a news site. The only citations are the original site and reposts of that same story.

It's a hoax.

I believe this started years ago in London... I was worried it would catch on and move over here. But let's see...a cowardly, violent, senseless, indefensible act that only complete psychotic a******s would perpetrate... Yeah, of course it would catch on here.

First problem is your blind belief of social media sites and the press. The kids call it "punch a Jew" and "polar bear" because of race. If it was mostly young whites hitting blacks, women and the elderly it's all you would see on the news. But as it is, it does not advance the liberal agenda so it's not reported on that much.

Agreed. There was another long thread on this article. Basically until I see it from a reputable news source, I'll call it fake

Do you even realize how this "game" works? If you are alone, you will be out and down before you even know what's happening.

It's just a bunch of worthless gutless cowards who can't resist the opportunity to physically act out the putrefaction that festers in their feeble minds.

Nothing wrong with any of the perps that couldn't be straightened out with a properly swung pickaxe handle. The trick is to grip firmly, swing from the hips, and always lock your eyes on the intended point of impact. Well seasoned Hickory (Carya Ovata) is best, but White Ash (Fraxinus Americana) will do in a pinch.

News reports today put the fatality count from the "knockout game" at five innocent victims. The fact that code words like "polar bear" has been established confirms that racial hatred is definitely an element to the crimes.

I wonder if louiseville slugger would replace a bat broken in defense of the knock out silliness?
