Knock Out Game ... on the rise

What the fuck is up with people (MEN) especially, but women too! Are people this bored that seeing if they can knock out someone on the first hit is fun?

And most are putting it on video or caught on video.


A few years ago, there was a woman that took her daughter out to a suburban area, and had the girl try to hit another little girl and jump back into the van.

I think people just need to be put to death. I mean there is no real repruction for most things now. Jail is nothing, fining is nothing.

A rash of random attacks has been blamed on the rise of the 'knock out' game.

On Thursday, a 43-year-old man was knocked out by a group of teens who pounced on him while he was out walking his dogs in Dumbo, Brooklyn.

'As he went to tie up his dogs to confront these kids, the group distracted him from the front and then one came up behind him and hit him in the head,' a witness told



The witness who asked not to be identified, said the teens, who were leaving Shake Shack in Dumbo had thrown water and milkshakes at the victim before knocking him out.

'The police last night were telling me that this group of kids, it was the second time they had done it last night, and this seems to be this ongoing contest or trend amongst these teens,' one person said.

Similar incidents happened last month in Manhattan and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where surveillance footage showed a woman being kicked and then knocked out cold.

But in that case, no one helped her or called an ambulance or police.



Instead, people took out their phones and took photos of her as she lay unconscious.

In the Manhattan incident, police are hunting for three men who knocked out a 53-year-old woman on Essex Street on the Lower East Side, which left the victim with a swollen and bleeding face.

No arrests have been made in any of the attacks.

honestly, imo there is a lot of free-floating anger being experienced by people of the world these days. we are completely over-populated on a planet with limited resources. there is a 1% controlling half of the world's wealth. our environment is rapidly declining and appears to be on track to continue.

when we see these things, the normal reaction would be to rise up and somehow balance these inequities, but we cannot because many political systems worldwide prevent equality. those who have power and wealth do not want to give them up.

and some of these political systems and interest groups are working hard to divide and conquer us all. for example, one of the investigations into 'Russian interference' in our elections focused on FaceBook ads and posts that deliberately promoted racially-based hatred.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/technology/russian-operatives-used-facebook-ads-to-exploit-divisions-over-black-political-activism-and-muslims/2017/09/25/4a011242-a21b-11e7-ade1-76d061d56efa_story.html

https://www.thedailybeast.com/exclusive-russians-impersonated-real-american-muslims-to-stir-chaos-on-facebook-and-instagram

obviously, these ideas will further divide one person against another person on the basis of their skin color and/or religion and/or ethnicity.

so we turn on each other instead of addressing the systematic unfairness of this world.

my friend was a victim of the knockout game, for no reason other than he chose to walk home after work. he ended up in hospital, and this happened in the famed minneapolis uptown neighborhood. he was attacked because his skin is white, by people with darker skin.

clearly, we need to stand united against inequitable political systems. sadly, we are unlikely to do so as we are distracted and divided by petty things like skin color. divide and conquer is working well on this planet.

Daily Mail is a right wing paper that has had much fake news. It is very trumpian. Knock Out game was debunked a few years back. It is rare.

In Australia, it is known as a "coward punch", a "one hit punch" or a "king hit". Following a spate of "sucker punches" and two deaths, laws were passed against the practice and there was a series of ads on TV etc. including one with a famous boxer. This occurred in 2014 and since then the practice has all but stopped.

Not as rare as you might think.

Even thought these cover male and female targets, for a guy to knock out a female in one punch is easier to get to that goal. This kind of thing is just sensless. There needs to a law that squashes this behaviour.

Yeah, because Alternet never has fake news... lol

BTW, when the knockout game first made news in 2013, Alternet was on it.

https://www.alternet.org/...e-targeted


But then a couple weeks later, they apparently got the memo and changed their talking points to reflect the narrative that it's a racist myth.

https://www.alternet.org/...eral-media


https://www.alternet.org/...servatives

Sorry if you can't see through the propaganda. Enjoy your echo chamber. lol lol

What punishment do you believe is appropriate for perpetrators of the knockout game?
