    WTF? "The Knockout Game". it's evidently spreading- and trending on social media
    The New York Police Department is investigating a series of unprovoked recent beatings as possible hate crimes, as they are increasingly occurring in predominantly Jewish neighborhoods.

    According to police, bored teens are playing a game called “Knockout,” the purpose of which is to incapacitate a passing pedestrian with a single punch.

    One teen interviewed by WTAE said that “t’s for the fun of it. It’s like when you were a little kid, running around and hitting people. Only now you’re grown, so you can knock ’em out.”

    The NYPD is concerned that the game may be spreading beyond the Tri-State area, as reports have surfaced of similarly unprovoked attacks in Pittsburgh and St. Louis in recent weeks.

    They suspect that the teens are trading videos of their “knockouts” via social media.

    WASHINGTON - A terrifying new ‘game’ that’s already caused deaths in Syracuse, St. Louis and New Jersey is sweeping the nation, and it preys upon unsuspecting people walking the streets, anywhere.

    A recent report from New York-based CBS 2 shed light on the growing trend, displaying unsettling footage of teens participating in this game – which goes by the name ‘Knockout’ – and involves randomly targeting passersby, with the ultimate goal being to knock them out with one punch as they walk by.

    One victim shown in the footage was 46-year-old Ralph Santiago of Hoboken, N.J., who was found dead with his neck broken and head lodged between iron fence posts, according to NJ.com.

    Video surveillance shows Santiago walking in an alleyway in broad daylight, and just as he’s about to pass a pack of teenagers, one launches the fatal, knockout blow.

    Of course they won't tell the truth and say that this is a "game" perpetuated by black youths mostly targeting white people.

    9. Sounds like the heir's to the tea party generation.
    Yea, right, the tea party people are going around knocking people out for the fun of it.

    17. I don't see that at all

    I think it has a lot more to do with sky high unemployment and school systems that are failing inner city black youth.

    21. Strike race from your explanation; this is a nearly world-wide thing

    Started as "happy slapping" in the UK amongst largely working class/poor whites. Here, it's not limited to one race, either. Rotten economy and terrible schools for all.

    31. no, I won't strike race from the explanation. that would be counter to the facts

    In this country and that are what these articles are about, it's largely black inner city kids who are engaging in this. By quite a large margin evidently. It's by no means only white victims however. In doing a search I couldn't find any cases of white kids "playing" it or any videos.

    And some of it does appear race related as in this:

    Again, this has a lot to do with our society failing these kids and the very high drop out rates and unemployment.

    Amazing some DUmmies won't call a spade a spade. Sorry you Libtard fools,
    the animals are on the loose and they need to be stopped.

    I wonder if Rev. Al or Jesse will be issuing any statements to the press condemning this???
    May the FORCE be with you!

    Engage DUmmie mode: Clearly it had to do with his failing those kids somehow, maybe by not passing out after the first punch. End DUmmie mode.

    Blaming the victim is very popular on the left. Everybody has it coming, except them.

    Dan, when they said it has happened in St Louis, was it very long ago and where did it occur? I worry about my family there, so glad that I'm not selling office equipment anymore in STL. I had to go in some really dangerous areas, pretty much stopped it at the end, figured the commissions not worth my life.

    It's gang mentality, has nothing to do with tea party members.

    Be that as it may, I'd love to see examples of any kind of violence by Tea Party members.

    Wow, so unemployment and the school system force these poor hapless young miscreants to run around playing the "knockout" game?

    Hey, DUmmies, here's a couple of unknown concepts for you:

    1) Parenting.

    2) Personal responsibility for one's actions.


    That DUmmies can write this off and excuse these VIOLENT CRIMINALS says reams about their utter lack of character and humanity.
