The Knockout Game
Who are these *******s and how do we eliminate them from our society?
Be advised *******s, some people carry guns, some of them will shoot you if they see you do this.
"Knockout" game targeting victims in several cities, report says - Crimesider - CBS News
Be careful out there folks and be aware of your surroundings. The last thing I want to hear is that an LGKer has become a victim of this insanity.

This "knockout game" crap needs a big dose of self-defense like this. Kid got just shy of what he deserved (six-feet under) and STILL managed to wreck the life of the person he forced into using a handgun to defend themselves by engaging them in such a potentially deadly manner. The victim (who IS the person who used the pistol to defend themselves) will undoubtedly face several years of litigation as well as the psychological issues that come as the aftermath to this sort of thing.
Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.

That is pretty messed up. If and when some of these kids get caught we oughta take a page from Indonesia and have them caned.
Or a good flogging will do.

I don't think this is just a black inner city kid thing. I seem to recall this going through white suburbia a while back too. Still it's another instance of mob mentality/peer pressure and adolescence slamming into the real world.

I wonder if Todd Bertuzzi approves of this kind of b.s.?

Another week, another boogeyman.
Read the statistics folks. Violent crime has halved since the mid-90s and here were are scared to death of everyone around us, as usual.

Sad thing is, when individuls are caught, the blame will just be deflected, "society is at fault" etc, etc. complete BS

Yes, it's so incredibly frightening that we live in a society that has crime. How I mustered up the courage to leave my house this morning, I'll never know.

it seems this is only happening in urban areas. Thankfully, in more rural areas, we exorcise our 2nd amendment rights and have CCW's. To bad the urban areas feel the need to disarm law abiding citizens so they protect themselves and theirs.
