The title clearly states my feelings toward the matter. In case you aren’t aware of the “game” knockout, it basically consists of striking an unsuspecting person on the street and trying to quite literally knock them out in one punch. Man, woman or child, it does not matter to the reprobates and vile scumbags who engage in the activity.
Not only is the act itself reprehensible and cowardly, the punch along with the immediate aftermath can be deadly.
Below are a few incidents of the act captured on camera. Be warned, it can be disturbing if you still consider the people who are doing this as people instead of animals. I think about it in the same sense as watching “When Animals Attack” type shows, it makes it a little easier to digest.
The last one was filmed in Pittsburgh. I remember that day, I was only a few blocks away and I have taken the Tito Way alley as a shortcut a number of times. The teacher who these kids attacked suffered severe injuries, not just on the punch but also the force with which he hit the ground. If he was a few inches further away from the curb the fall would have probably killed him as his head would have struck the corner of the curb full on.
He was lucky. Others are not. In Hoboken New Jersey, Chicago Illinois and Syracuse New York people have been KILLED being victims of the knockout “game”.
This is not a game. This is not indiscretion of youth. This is not a good time being taken too far.
If the mainstream media won’t call it what it is I sure as hell will; this is a case where rabid animals are running loose in the streets and need to be put down.
I actively hope that eventually one of these thugs tosses a limp wristed punch to a gun carrier who has the situational awareness to avoid getting knocked out and responds by filling the offender with lead.
What? You thought a site called “Bullets First” was going to be all touchy feely and say these animals deserve hugs?
They are KILLING people. And the nature of their crime, the randomness of it all makes it nigh impossible to stop unless there is actual photographic evidence of the crime, even then.
These are the situations where an armed society is needed because the police are not going to walk every citizen around a city every moment of every day. With the wild animals running loose on the streets a person is responsible for their own protection.
If a rabid dog was charging at me in the street I would put a bullet in him rather than face the risk of getting mauled to death. I would do the same to a rabid animal who walks on 2 feet who was trying to do the same thing.
The only difference is I would feel bad about shooting the dog.
