Knockout

Postby Beaver » Fri Dec 13, 2013 9:18 pm

Have you heard of the Knockout game? A gang member goes up to a pedestrian on the street and punches him/her in the face or pushes him to the ground, then runs away. It started in NYC and spread to other parts of the East coast. Now there are two cases in Milwaukee.

Brutal "Knockout Game" Incident In Milwaukee
http://www.wisconsinfree.com/index.php/articles/284
"The Wisconsin Free has obtained exclusive video from a "pull camera"* used in high violence areas of yet another supposed victim to the so-called “Knockout Game,” also known as “Point ‘em Out, Knock ‘em Out.” The latest incident occurred near the Milwaukee Collegiate Academy at 4030 North 29th St. in Milwaukee."

An important clarification: the game definitely exists, and has been around for at least a couple of years. I'm not claiming the game doesn't exist. But the idea that it's reached epidemic levels, or that it's only being played by young black people, is a fallacy.

According to the Saint Louis Dispatch, Ashley Depew, 23, told police that she was a victim of ‘The Knockout Game’ – when she was actually attacked by her own boyfriend.

"The 'knockout game' may or may not be a new phenomenon, but with a few instances out of tens of thousands of assaults, it's not a trend, and media outlets shouldn't treat it as one," the news organization reports.


The media can be sensationalists looking for a story. The only thing they do is fuel the trend.

the word on the street is that in some cities there is an anti-semitic dynamic to this as well.

i would like to see one of those punks target someone walking with a cane and wind up getting it applied to their noggin at 20 metres per second. i myself have several with solid brass and silver heads weighing up to 1250 grammes

if it is long enough, it is theoretically possible; the k[o|no]ckouter would need to be very tall and/or moderately gymnastic.

Knocked out by a big cock. What a way to go. What would the police line up look like for the suspects?
