I would love to see this game played in Texas.

Not likely. Chances are it will only occur in places where the law abiding are disarmed.

I so glad that this "knockout game" isn't a trend and turned out to be a myth created by the racist media.

Yes, one anecdotal incident is rock solid confirmation that this is an epidemic.

Of course, the constant reporting of this "Knockout Game" has nothing to do with increasing incidents!  Giving random assaults a flashy, headline worthy name, would never encourage stupid people to partake in an activity.  That has never happened in the history of history, people doing things because the media hyped something, turning a myth into reality.
 
2013-11-30 11:05:38 AM
You guys are really pushing this.  Remember when a gang of teens beating the sh*t out of you was called part of the "wilding epidemic?"

No?  What the hell?  What is the point of the news media rebranding and recycling urban legends every ten years if you forgot everything that happened before?  Truly this is a thankless job.

Hey blacks and Hispanic males between 14 and 30, I'd stay the f*ck away from Central Park for a few weeks.

Happens all the time.  We just don't call it the "Knockout Game".  It's written off as delinquents being delinquent, just as they've always been.

It's not a group of young men and boys.

It's a gang. Probably having something to do with the intake of new shorties into the gang by the shot callers and other useless pieces of shiat.
 
2013-11-30 11:30:35 AM
I wonder if the media made this a thing and is giving people the idea to actually go out and do this.

Like the swine flu panic that the media created.

This same exact type of assault came across the news and interwebs 10 years ago.  It died out even with the media hype.  Somehow my friends in Denver forgot that this same shiat happened there a decade.ago.
 
2013-11-30 11:36:22 AM
So did this thing gain steam from being reported as fact then with copycats or was it bad at first then reported later?
 
2013-11-30 11:36:25 AM
This is the stupidest thing I've ever seen. Are people going to worry about being clobbered in the streets now? Because people in America aren't already pussy little cowards enough?

It's called "assault" and it's been happening as long as there has been teenagers. Welcome to the real world. OMG ONE PERSON IN AMERICA GOT HIT EVERYBODY PANIC

That guy looks like a real racist to me. Probably in the Klan.
 
2013-11-30 11:37:27 AM
The "knockout Game" is a myth perpetuated by the media, based on three isolated incidents nationwide.  Once they had the publicity, teens all over the country started doing it.

Not the first time this has happened.

When there was a riot in Wiers Beach NH, in 1965, the press blamed it on "outlaw motorcycle gangs" which were 3000 miles away at the time.  That fantasy gave way to cheap vio--fantasy films, which eventually led to the formation of most modern biker groups.

When the Murrah Building was blown up in 1995, the press was quick to blame "white ring terrorist militias" despite the fact no person arrested was connected in any way to any militia group, and also despite the fact that no person anywhere in the USA had ever been killed or even seriously injured by any militia group.

However, the fantasy led many people to firm such groups; the tail not only wagged the dog--it created the dog out of thin air.

Next reporters will have stories about a rash of bra-less beautiful large breasted women in white t-shirts running without an umbrella in the rain.

One of my right-wing Facebook friends says the liberal media has been trying to bury the news about the knockout game for fear of appearing racist.

No really, that's where some people are going with this.

The other night on the news some black woman was getting interviewed and was saying it was not black people acting black, it was just teen males being teens. The interviewer asked her that if it were a bunch of white people attacking elderly and female black people, instead of the other way around, if she would still be out here claiming race is not an element. I turned the channel to Adult Swim before she had a chance to lie.

Just another example how poor and uneducated people need to use violence for entertainment. I blame the proliferation of UFC in mainstream society for outbreaks like this. No one ever threw a punch because they were watching masterpiece theatre.

Are you surprised in the least?

The worst part is I'd heard of isolated incidents like this occurring for, say, the past 15 years or so, but in all of those cases it was drunken white frat boy idiocy, so it wasn't a "disturbing trend", just juvenile idiocy. Funny how the narrative changes when the skin color of the perpetrators changes...

White teens are well known for attacking people of all races.

Are you really thinking there's some race war out there?

So this is 'myth' in the same way the Mythbusters tests 'myths'.  Got it.

Also, it's all Andy's fault.

This happened to me and many of my friends at Berkeley High School. I didn't fall down, just had a very swollen lip and made it out of the mob of kids.

So, news flash, Mr. Romero: walking by a group of black teenagers can be dangerous and it's best to keep your wits about you when doing so, maybe give them a little space.

I had a good friend in New York City.  He never called me by my name, just hillbilly.  My grandpa taught me how to live off the land, and his taught him to be a businessman (what a waste of time).  But he was killed by a man win a knockout game.  For THUG kicks my friend lost his life

This is the reason I always avoided education and never left where I was born.  It looks like I'm the smart one now.   I can skin a buck which is an intensely difficult skill.  So difficult that it takes several hours to train illiterate migrants at one of our nation's slaughterhouses.  I can also run a trot line - which is a series of hooks laid across a stream.  Can you master such a difficult skill?  No, you cannot with your book learning and city living.

What you're forgetting is that most cases of assault have cause, such as "gimme all yo' money" or "he said my girl is all ratchet, so now he's gonna shiat teeth."

Point is, if you go to fight somebody and you've got a good reason to fight, I'm okay with that.

If you go attack somebody for no good reason, or just because you think you could knock out that 78-year-old grandma, you deserve the firing squad.

Waiting for the "where did we fail these poor children" folks to show up.
You know, the guys that say we should have provided them with alternatives.
Maybe youth centers, basketball courts, video games, cell phones places to go, people to see and things to do.

Bullshiat. Have you ever seen a Clockwork Orange? Male teens like to hurt things and break stuff. It's not a racial thing.

'shorty' - is slang for a female.  I think you meant something like "new members" ?
