    Try reading the thread. I provided a more serious example from last year.

    And if you are up on the subject, I am more than sure you are aware of those who have been caught and state that they were playing that game. Do you think they were lying?

    I'll look back and try to find what you are referencing here.

    I will say this though, if they were in fact playing this game, that does not necessarily mean that it is the epidemic sweeping the country that it is being made out to be. That's the issue I take with this silly news trend.

    Luckily there are folks with common sense enough to know this isn't a myth...

    Bernie Goetz was the first I remember reported for that type of thing. Maybe the game can include adding "burn one for Bernie" for extra points (and headlines).

    It is happening many times and is spreading.
    So what do you call an epidemic?

    Really? You apparently haven't been reading the multiple threads about this topic, or you're reading what you want to read.

    A handful of posts from this and another thread. But yes, it's only "the libbos" blaming black people.

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.
    That might have been true before social media like Facebook or Twitter and what all. I believe reporting it will make people more aware of who is around them. I now that my State legislature might make this a felony when they meet next year.
