    Whether it started out as a "myth", or, more likely, as a few isolated incidents, yes, reporting it will make it more prevalent. Calling it a "game", which it certainly is not, will make it more prevalent, too. Like I said in the other thread on this subject, the stupid street thugs, who have never had an original thought penetrate their dense skulls probably ever, read... no, scratch read... hear about this "game", and say, "Hey, that's cool! Let's go out and knock someone out!"

    It's the same as any other "copycat" sort of crime.

    Of course it's real. And of course it's spreading. Regardless of what those say that deny any and all egregious acts by certain groups of people (young people that lack an ethical and moral compass).

    Or maybe a "put a thug on a chain gang and make him work for a living" game.

    That game has been around for at least half a century, but the police do that for us, regardless of any actual crimes having been committed.

    I'd play that game. Hell, they should subsidize it. Positive externalities from it.

    According to you, we now have lots of new players.

That had that video not been hyped three weeks ago, none of this new crap would be going on. People get attacked and mugged and shot, it isn't new, not three weeks ago, not now, and this probably is just more media bull to get hyped headlines and stir up more interest in a non-game that's going to turn into a real game.

    It is not a myth that it happens. They classify it as a street assault to downplay it. Sadly, the more people hype it though, the more seeds will have been planted in the minds of the bored, perpetually unemployed kids.

    Uhm, I was talking about the game "zap a ghetto snipe." Not the fake "knock out game". And there's nothing racist in recognizing that we have our police force aggressively going after AAs at a rate that way outpaces any other race.
