Random Thoughts: Knockout Game, Leadership, and Happy Holidays

Posted on December 3, 2013 9:43 am

So this Knockout Game stuff is real? It just seems so urban legendy.

Maybe the President of the United States should have basic leadership skills.

Merry Christmas! And happy other holidays near Christmas we inflate in importance for multicultural reasons!

If Christmas didn’t exist, but all the other holidays still existed, would anyone say “Happy Holidays!” this time of year?

    What I can’t understand is why this Knockout Game stuff is being hyped so much now, when even the AP and CBS have known and reported about it for years now. (Maybe because now it serves as a good racial distraction from ObamaCare failures?)

    Unprovoked attacks at heart of ‘Knockout King’

    ST. LOUIS (AP) — Matthew Quain still struggles to piece together what happened after a trip to the grocery store nearly turned deadly. He remembers a group of loitering young people, a dimly lit street – then nothing. The next thing he knew he was waking up with blood pouring out of his head. The 51-year-old pizza kitchen worker’s surreal experience happened just before midnight earlier this year, when he became another victim of what is generally known as “Knockout King” or simply “Knock Out,” a so-called game of unprovoked violence that targets random victims.

    St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay got an up-close-and-personal view Friday night of a street crime known as Knockout King when he and his chauffeur drove up on a man beaten on the side of the road. In interviews yesterday, Slay said the man had been violently attacked by a group of teens and left bloodied and dazed in the street. The victim — a 51-year-old man — was left with a broken jaw and will take weeks to recover from the attack that occurred around 11 p.m. at Grand and Utah Avenues in Tower Grove South. Reports indicate that the…

    Teens Target Cyclists In ‘Knockout’ Game
    CBS St. Louis | 8/29/11
    ST. LOUIS, MO. (KMOX) — There’s an alert out about recent assaults on bike riders in south St. Louis. Trailnet.org, an organization that promotes hiking and biking, is cautioning riders to be on the alert for roving bands of teenagers who swarm and attack riders. Trailnet says the latest attack was last Thursday (8/25) afternoon near Missouri Botanical Garden where a group of 10 to 15 African-American teens charged and attacked a cyclist. “They weren’t really interested in robbing me. It just seemed like they wanted to beat me up,” says assault victim Cheech Ramirez. “They weren’t interested in letting…

    Knockout King: Kids call it a game. Academics call it a bogus trend. Cops call it murder.

    The Knockout Game is very real in places like NY City, Chicago, St. Louis, Detroit, etc…maybe not so real in places like Boise.

    Here is an important link that should be shared. I found this along with several other sites that encourage black on white hate crimes. It’s not that difficult for the government to sensor these sites and publicly address this serious issue in our society today. Our President addressed the Trevon Martin issue in a day, and that was one teenager of color who was high on drugs that died. We have already had over 7 deaths nationally reported due to the “Polar Bear Game” how many have gone under the radar?
    Why is the media down playing the issue and the government not addressing it? It didn’t take me too long to find black on white hate sites, and I don’t have the national security’s technology.

    These acts are terrorist attacks if one knows th definition of terrorist. Sites like the following perpetuate black on white terrorist attacks in the name of their holy beliefs that the white man is the devil. I kid you not… this is really happening and it is up to “white man” and those who are actually enlightened to spread the word to deffend yourself and be prepared:

    It’s probably a lot less cumbersome to society than the previously popular “knock up game”….. wait, money babies are still being born to welfare moms? Nevermind…….

    Not sure if the Knockout Game is an Urban Legend, but here in West Virginia it’s the second week of deer season & I am having a hard time imagining how such a ‘game’ would play out in our rural community. (Hint: about half the population between 8 and 80 have been out shooting at least once this week.)

    For “Happy Holidays”, just pretend that they mean Christmas and New Year’s.
