The race of the young hoodlums who attack innocent people isn’t mentioned in any of the reporting on the subject of the knockout game.
Naturally, the players are Nogs.
Like a zombie in a Halloween horror flick, the “knockout game” refuses to die — and its latest, twisted variation is terrifying New Yorkers.
“There is no point to it, it’s crazy,” said Charisma Jano-Baptiste, 28, as she stood steps from where a man was attacked last week in DUMBO by a teen playing the ‘game’ — who then took a selfie with his victim.
The 43-year-old victim was walking near the Shake Shack at Old Fulton and Water streets at 9:15 pm Thursday when he was clocked by the teen attacker, cops said.
“It’s not cool,” said a worried Shake Shack employee. “Yeah, I’m scared. What if I’m next?”
The last time the ‘game’ — whose goal is to slug a stranger into unconsciousness— was played was September, when Lower East Sider Susan Farina, 53, was socked as she walked her dog.
Last year, a 14-year-old Queens boy was charged with a hate crime after he admitted to attacking a Muslim man outside a mosque.
The boy allegedly intended to target someone at random as part of the “knockout game,” but ended up beating Mohamed Rasheed Khan so badly, Khan required surgery for broken bones in his face.
Some question if cops can stop such a random phenomenon.
“How do they get a handle on something like that? It’s worrisome. I’m a petite woman,” said Krystin Clark, 25, a Brooklyn student, who said if she sees a pack of teenagers, “I’m definitely crossing the street. It makes me very sad.”
CBS Local New York reports on a recent incident involving the so-called game:
“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 said.
The witness who asked not to be identified, said a group of teens leaving a Shake Shack in DUMBO singled out a 43-year-old man walking his dogs.
They tossed water and milkshakes at him before delivering a knockout punch to his jaw.
What happened next was even more disturbing.
“One boy ran up and crouched down and posed for a photo next to the guy that was passed out and then the rest of the group just kind of ran off and scattered,” the man said.
Witnesses said the victim lay unconscious for some 45 minutes, but in this case bystanders did step in to help.
Another similar incident happened last month in Manhattan.
Police are looking for three men wanted for the knock out style attack that happened on Essex Street on the Lower East Side. It left a 53-year-old woman with a swollen and bleeding face.
With no arrests yet in either case, people are worried.
“The police last night
The knockout game was never reported in the media until a Negro teen attacked a Jew, mistaking him for white. That was maybe four years ago. The media still leaves out the black racism toward whites that is the genesis of the assaults.
Here’s a popular older video with the same headline as today. The public could see in 2013 that the knockout game was spiking in popularity then.
Commenter Dave Drake said this on youtube three years ago:
All whites need to arm themselves. Anytime you see clacks walking towards you have your gun ready in your front pocket of your jacket pointed out with your finger on the trigger.
Do not be afraid to pull the trigger. remember; blacks hate all whites and will kill you with no remorese just like they kill other black people and laugh about it ( see Detroit).
Blacks are the most racist people in America and consistantly prove it. Even Oprah recently stated that she wished all older white people were dead and twice over 97% of blacks voted for Obama simply because he was black.
I suggest you carry two guns and at least two spare clips. Once the black racist gang approaches you fire off a shot at the closest one and then empty the entire clip on the whole crowd of them.
Do not be afraid. remember… it is either defend yourself or be killed by them.
This so-called game is going to create a million george Zimmermans. If this is what we need to stop the racist black savage then so be it.
personally, I think we need to take back our streets from these niggers by forming armed civilian patrols.
