    The MSM would like to have you believe that the "knockout game" --in which black youth target white passersby and attack them--is just a "conservative fiction." Fortunately, there is youtube:

    A Katy man who was allegedly playing the "knockout game" has been charged with a federal hate crime in an attack that left an elderly black man hospitalized for days.

    Conrad Barrett, 27, is scheduled to appear in court today to face charges that violated the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act when he targeted a black man in an attack on Nov. 24, 2013, according to a statement from the U.S. Department of Justice.

    Court documents say Barrett recorded himself on his cell phone making racial slurs and saying he intended perform a "knockout" attack. He allegedly said "the plan was to see if I were to hit a black person, would it be nationally televised."

    He then recorded the attack, which left the 79-year-old victim with his jaw broken in two places.

    Federal officials describe the knockout game as "an assault where someone aims to knockout an unsuspecting victim with just one punch."

    "Suspected crimes of this nature will simply not be tolerated," says Acting Assistant Attorney General Jocelyn Samuals from the Civil Rights Division of the FBI. "Hate crimes tear the fabric of entire communities."

    If convicted, Barrett faces a statutory maximum of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

    It works in reverse as well.

    Quite disingenuous, Retread.

    That example is a singular one and, as you can see from the guy's statement, a reaction to law enforcement's non-reaction to hate crimes against whites.

    There have been many, many whites of all ages and genders targeted by black youths in this knockout game. There has been, as far as we know, this ONE attack on a black man and it was done to test the media.

    Edited to add:

    This is a small sampling of "the Knockout game." Show me how many were "in reverse", Retread.

    Although they are far fewer, this one is just the latest of white on black "knockouts" around here. But, IMHO, they do not fit the hate crime requirements within existing law but rather, as noted, are simply methods to get their 15 minutes of fame. There are also cases of simply young on old in white, brown and black skin tones serving the same purpose.

    This particular story has the headlines only because of the severity of the injury and the local constabulary sees a chance to make a name for themselves prosecuting it.

    I have seen proof of ONE thus far. If white teens have picked up on this, show me. Meanwhile, understand that there are over 25 documented cases of black-on-white knockout game crime that I can retrieve in a heartbeat, without an internet search. I could find many more if I put in the effort.

    I have no doubt and don't disagree with the beginnings of and preponderance of black on white occurrences. My point is - it's spreading. Therefore any ignoring by the LSM is multiple. The degree of publicity around here is so low as to make it a secondary if not tertiary level news (back page below the fold) if at all.

    At least the one story fully admits the presence of the game.

    ... “The gunman approached the couple from behind and shot the woman in the back of the head using a shotgun, police at the scene said. It was unclear how many times she was shot.

    ““Witnesses and the boyfriend report that the suspect just appeared and fired the gunshot,” Skaggs said. “There were no words exchanged.”


    ...The shooting was reported shortly after 10 p.m. Sunday. Police said the victim, identified as Carrie Jean Melvin, 30, of Hollywood was found on Sunset Boulevard and McCadden Place near Hollywood High School.

    “According to investigators, the suspect approached the woman from behind and shot her. The woman’s boyfriend, who was with her at the time, was not shot. Police said Melvin lived nearby and the two were walking to get something to eat.

    “Melvin was pronounced dead at the scene. Her boyfriend was not injured. His identity has not been released.

    “Authorities said there is no known motive at this time.

    “”We’ve interviewed the boyfriend, there’s no indication that they had any idea there were enemies, that she would be targeted, so at this point we just don’t know,” said Detective John Skaggs.

    “Witnesses said the suspect ran to a car, described as a black four-door vehicle, and drove off.

    “Police described the suspect as a black male wearing dark clothing and a hoodie. Authorities said they are planning on looking at surveillance footage from nearby businesses to assist in their investigation.”

    White Deaf Special Needs Man Attacked, Stabbed By Two Black Men
    http://www.weaselzippers.us/228888-w...two-black-men/

    Advanced ‘Knock Out’ Game, this one played with stabbing implements…

    Via My Fox Tampa:

    A deaf man had no idea two men ran up behind him until he was on the ground trying to defend himself.

    The 49 year-old threw his arms in front of his face and body trying to prevent himself from being stabbed.

    “They attacked him from behind. They pushed him down, and they had some type of sharp instrument which they cut him, slashed him, and stabbed him with,” Hillsborough County Detective Marc Purvis explained. “The most serious of the injuries was a stab wound straight up into the jaw area.”

    The motive is unclear. Right now it’s robbery, but that could change.

    Other than the audacity of attacking a deaf man, what shocked Det. Purvis was the fact this happened in the middle of the afternoon, a few hundred yards from the University Square Mall, in an area surrounded by apartment complexes.

    Around 2 p.m. May 1, as the victim was walking along the banks of a retention pond, a popular path for many traveling to the mall when two guys jumped him.

    With a special needs mental state, Det. Purvis said the victim did all he could to defend himself, but eventually passed out from the overwhelming experience.

    According to the sheriff's office, the suspects didn't get away with much, just a disability identification card.

    Because of that, Det. Purvis questions if this may have been a hate crime.

    "As violent as it was and because of the separate races, them being black and him being white, also him having disabilities, it could very well be," Det. Purvis said.

    The victim's mother, Marion Merrell, agrees. She was shocked to hear of what happened to her son.

    "That wasn't just a robbery. That was attempted murder, because he could have been killed. They stabbed him right in the throat," she said. "How can you feel that you're safe in your community. You're not."

    The sheriff's office has one angle of crime camera video that shows two men walking away from the scene around the time of the attack.

    At this time, they are nothing more than persons of interest, but detectives would like to identify them and question them.

    Surprisingly, it's not happening in Detroit.
