The Knockout Game – Danger on the Street

Knockout Game Is Just A Preview Of The Chaos That Is  Coming To The Streets Of America

There is a hot new game being played in cities all over America, and it is  very simple.  You pick out a defenseless person on the street and you try to  knock them out.  In most areas, it is known as “the knockout game”.  In some  communities it is called by other names such as “point-em-out, knock-em-out” and “polar bear hunting”.  In many instances, the perpetrators don’t even try to  steal anything from the people that they knock out.  The goal is just to “have  fun” by brutally attacking an innocent victim.  Well, if this is what young  thugs in America will do for fun when times are still good, what will they be  willing to do when our economy really starts falling apart?  Yes, the U.S.  economy has  definitely been steadily declining, but the truth is that what we are  experiencing right now is rip-roaring prosperity compared to what is coming in  the years ahead.  So what will the streets of America look like when things get  really bad?

If you have never heard of “the knockout game” before, the following is how USA  Today recently described it…

Dangerous “knockout” attacks on strangers are leading to arrests, more  officers flooding the streets and more warnings for vigilance by an  unsuspecting  public.

Perpetrators have dubbed the violent practice as the “knockout game,” in  which young people try to randomly knock out strangers with one punch.

Recent attacks in New York, New Haven, Conn., Washington, D.C. and suburban  Philadelphia have raised concerns across the country.

Of course there are variations on the game.  Sometimes the goal is to knock  out victims with a single punch, but in other instances entire groups of young  thugs attack a victim and the goal is to see who can knock out the victim  first.

Most of the time this game does not involve the theft of belongings, but in  other cases it does.  For example, the following is how one teen described  the game

“You just knock them out. You hit them with a blow and you take their  belongings.”

Most of the time, the victims are males.

But this is not always true.

In fact, the  Huffington Post recently reported on an incident in which a 78-year-old  grandmother was attacked…

Earlier this month, CBS 2 reported on a series of attacks on Jews in Brooklyn,  allegedly part of a disturbing game that has teens punching Jewish adults in an  effort to try to knock them over.

Now it appears the action — dubbed the “knockout game” — has spread. Violent  videos shot in other cities and in as many as six states, show teenagers  knocking into other victims on purpose including, most recently, a 78-year-old  grandmother in Brooklyn.

The victim’s daughter said she was walking along in broad daylight when a  young African-American male knocked her down. He didn’t take anything, she  said,  and didn’t seem interested in anything but hitting her as hard as he  could  before running off.

Sometimes, the victims of “the knockout game” never get back up.  Last year,  a 20-year-old college student in Minnesota was killed by a pack of thugs  playing  the knockout game.  You can see a video news report about that incident right  here.

Knockout game deaths have also been reported in  Syracuse, in St. Louis and in New Jersey.  In the case in New Jersey, the  attackers left 46-year-old Ralph Santiago lodged  between iron fence posts with a broken neck

One victim shown in the footage is a 46-year-old man from Hoboken, N.J., who  was found dead with his neck broken and head lodged between iron fence posts, according to

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.

And what’s the point?

“For the fun of it,” one teen said in the video.

This is not just “harmless fun”.

People are actually dying.

Sadly, this is just one more sign that our society is starting to come apart  at the seams.  Violent crime in America was up 15 percent last  year, and an epidemic of very  unusual crimes is sweeping the nation.

We are rapidly getting to the point where criminals are becoming so  cold-hearted that they will go after just about anyone.  For example, in Stockton,  California the other day some thugs held an entire youth soccer team at  gunpoint with a shotgun…

It’s a soccer practice hold-up. Kids and the coach were victims of an armed  robbery at a park in Stockton.

The team of 16 year olds was practicing on a tennis court when three other  teens came up to them with a shotgun and demanded their stuff.

“This park is very dangerous. You can’t trust anyone anymore,” said James  Griffin, a neighbor.

Stockton police say an entire team was held at gunpoint and robbed of their  cell phones, keys and gym bags during practice.

All of this is happening at a time when police budgets are being deeply cut all over the nation.

If you do call the police, they might be able to help you.  There are still  lots of good cops out there.

But if you get a bad cop, you might deeply regret ever picking up that  telephone.

Just consider what happened to an innocent 19-year-old girl that was recently  stopped by  a member of the San Antonio Police Department

Officer Jackie Neal, 40, was in full uniform, in a marked squad car and  on-duty when he made a traffic stop Friday morning and sexually assaulted a  19-year-old woman, according to the San Antonio Police Department.

Police said Neal, an 11-year veteran with SAPD, pulled the victim over on the  south side and managed to get the woman to stand behind his squad car. What  happened next, San Antonio police Chief William McManus described as “unthinkable.”

In this day and age, it has become much more important for all of us to learn  how to defend ourselves.  As the U.S. economy spirals downhill, people are  going  to become increasingly desperate.  And desperate people do desperate  things.

The thin veneer of civilization that we all take for granted on a daily basis  is beginning to disappear.

Some Americans are choosing to fight back.

Just consider what happened in  Seattle the other day…

Robert Moore was ringing-up a customer around 10 p.m. at the Morning Star  Mini Mart, located in the 8800 block of 9th Ave SW, when two men entered the  store wearing ski masks. One of the men stayed near the entrance of the store  while the other attempted robber approached the counter and pointed a gun at  Moore.

“This is a robbery,” Moore said the man told him.

Moore said the attempted robber’s gun didn’t look real.

“I looked at his gun and said ‘I have a bigger one than you do,’ ” he  said.

Moore then turned to reach for his own gun and that’s when the attempted  robbers took off in a white SUV with dark markings toward the rear of the  driver’s side and a sun roof.

So how will you respond when the thugs come to your home or your  business?
