    It's called being cold cocked. There is no warning your going to be suckered punched.

    The proper way of cold cocking the unsuspecting victim is from the side or rear. There is no facing off or shoving, etc. No warnings at all. Originally referred to before political correctness as "japing" some one.

    It became a common tactic after the Vietnam war on the inner city streets. First learned in the prisons when shanking another inmate, black gang bangers picked up on it. No longer a facing down then escalating to a shoving match before the fist and feet go flying. Now it's one punch with no warning to take the victim down. One punch, one knock down. A few good kicks to the ribs and head for the coup de grace.

    I don't understand how this can be a dream come true, because white conservatives are the ones being targeted in the knockout games.

    Wait, now it's white conservatives being targeted in these random assaults?

    Good lord the hysteria here is well....hysterical. Everybody CALM DOWN. You are being whipped into a frenzy over what is most likely a complete fabrication. Stop being such puppets for god's sake.

    Are you one of those high school level editor hacks ?

    At least a dozen readers sent a question along the lines of what reader Howard Douglas asked: "Why tell us the gender, age, height and weight of the suspects without telling us their ethnicity? Perhaps writers for The Times are forbidden from giving complete descriptions of suspects. I've reported crimes to the police, and one the first questions is, 'Was he white, black, hispanic or Asian?' Is The Times afraid to repeat that information? Sounds a bit wimpy to me. In the future, give us the whole description or none of it. Example: 'Some people robbed a bank today...' " ..."< Racial identification: descriptions in full - latimes.com

    Do you want me go further why liberal PC publications don't use the legal term "illegal alien" but group illegal aliens with legal aliens and or legal immigrants ? Under federal statue to be an immigrant you must have been issued a valid immigrant visa and in possession of a green card. Even then under the law, your still an alien, but a legal alien.

    But, if a white dude attacked a black person, you can bet your ass it would matter.

    A pushed narrative does not make it a myth.

    And many of those links are of those debunking the myth claim.

    Wrong.
    Whether called “The Knock Out Game” or any other name, it does exist.
    It is a game to those playing it.
    And it has been in existence for at least five years.

    And there are videos of perpetrators and others that know of it's existence saying that it is a game that is played.
    So if you think those folks are are not telling the truth, something is wrong.

    To deny it's existence is ridiculous.

    Heck, here is a more violent example from last year.

    The three were playing a “game where the offender picks an innocent victim and knocks him out by striking him and likely robbing him as well,” Assistant Cook County State’s Attorney Terry Clancy told Judge Israel Desierto in court Monday.

    They haven't been doing a very good job.

    Both are being copy catted.

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.
    The persons that are likely to participate in this activity don't waych the news.
