I won't attach a label of a "race" issue here.

This game is being played by many and it is a very dangerous, stupid and sick game. Why on Earth do these kids think this is fun and why would they even consider harming another human being or life form for a sick game ? I am deeply disturbed by the behavior. We need to get to the bottom of this.

One blow to someones head can kill in an instant. The life taken away causes such anguish and despair. The kids doing this awful and strange behavior need to somehow learn and realize the ramifications of their actions. What is the best way to teach them ? I say round them all up and find a good way to get the message across. Ruin 3 months or more of their life to teach them of the consequences. After all they are so easily willing to ruin someone else's forever, why shouldn't they have the same ? 3 Months or longer is nothing compared to forever.

The "knockout game" is one of many names given by American news media to assaults in which, purportedly, one or more assailants attempt to knock out an unsuspecting victim, often with a single sucker punch, all for the amusement of the attacker(s) and their accomplice(s).[1] Other names given to assaults of this type include "knockout", "knockout king", "point 'em out, knock 'em out", "bomb",[2][3] and "polar-bearing" or "polar-bear hunting" (allegedly called such when the victim is white).[4][5][6] Serious injuries and even deaths have been attributed to the "knockout game". Some news sources report that there has been an escalation of such attacks in late 2013, and in some cases the attacker has been charged with a hate crime, while some politicians have been seeking new targeted legislation specifically against it.[4][7][8] However, other media analysts have cast doubt on the reportedly widespread nature of the game and have labeled the trend, although not the attacks themselves, a myth

Knockout game

Good people of all races need to arm themselves and stand up against these terrorist mobs. Making excuses and living in fear while our society devolves into anarchy only facilitates the problem, and leaves the door open for government to clamp down hard to "fix" things. Drop a few thugs each time a mob assault occurs, and they will quickly start happening less and less.

It seems like a hate crime. Charge them with a hate crime.

So tired of racists. ALL racists.

That's the problem. Our head of the Justice Department, Eric Holder makes it very difficult to press charges as a hate crime when it is a black on white crime.

Can anyone else see the division and racial tensions this administration has caused by selective prosecution based upon race?

Until it can be applied equally with out the color of ones skin being an issue, the whole idea of a hate crime should be null and void!

If this guy that was severely beaten had pulled out a gun and shot one of his attackers, rest assured we would have Al Sharpton leading another protest while Eric Holder used it as an excuse for more gun control......

Holder admits, No equality under the hate crime bill:

Just my two cents..

Holder is a racist just like Obama and his wife. Its open season as long as it is black on white, dem on rep, corporation on citizen, IRS on people, illegal on entering US, Muslim terrorist on anyone, Russia on Ukraine, withholding benefits on military...and the big one...wrong on right. If this group in the video should be arrested for a hate crime (as they should), these "leaders" should be arrested for the same...or at least aiding and abetting.

Other way around this is national news. But since it's black on white they won't even touch this one with a stick. Agenda.. agenda.. agenda..

Racism in America...Last I checked we have a mixed Race president with a Middle Eastern name whos right hand man since 2009, Eric Holder, who is also black. Two of the most powerful positions in the United States are occupied by men of color...not old rich white dudes with hoods in the closet. Stop pulling the race card.

However, this is an epidemic with kids. There are 100's of instances in the last 4-5 years. County fairs...schools...knockout games...mass mobs...but no, can't talk about it.

The MSM is owned by the same people who own the government. They want you to hate cops, be afraid and shut up.Very afraid.

The social engineers have done such a bang up job we don't
even need a war declared on us by some other country...
I saw that and thought about Matt Craven's monologue in
Jacob's Ladder. Rent it once if you haven't seen it:
just that scene explains everything about getting 'unlocked'.

Ah yes, Jacob's Ladder I've seen it several times but don't recall
that scene. I'll be checking that out. The movie I'm reminded of
is Run Away Train with Jon Voight and Eric Roberts. Voight is beating
on Roberts and the female involved calls Voight an animal. Where upon
Voight looks over at her and say's, "Worse! I'm human!". As if he himself
is disgusted by it. He then relents and lets Roberts live. Both great

The report The Color of Crime (2005, second expanded edition) by the New Century Foundation states that there are several problems with the official crime statistics in the United States. These tend to cause underestimation of racial crime differences. One example being "Whites" sometimes including Hispanics. Another is not adjusting for that the different racial groups differ in population size. The report reviews the more accurate statistics that is available and describes many large differences in crime rates between races. The report also examines the research on possible bias against racial minorities in the justice system and the police and concludes that bias not a significant explanation for the different racial crime rates.[3]
It major findings were stated as:[3]

Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery.
When Blacks commit crimes of violence, they are nearly three times more likely than non-Blacks to use a gun, and more than twice as likely to use a knife.
Hispanics commit violent crimes at roughly three times the white rate, and Asians commit violent crimes at about one quarter the White rate.
The single best indicator of violent crime levels in an area is the percentage of the population that is Black and Hispanic.
Of the nearly 770,000 violent interracial crimes committed every year involving Blacks and Whites, Blacks commit 85 percent and Whites commit 15 percent.

Please read this. It is non-education and environment. There is roughly a 70% White population and a 15% black population in the US. If that is true, and there is so much racism, why is it not in the news more?

There is also no 'white-privilege' either. Sorry, it is not 1870, 1920, 1960 or even the 80's....we are 15 years into a new century and blame can only go on the current and last generations that are not breaking the cycle. Rosa Parks did not stay in her seat for people can run wild and play the knockout game...

a reply to: angrypsycho1977>> I think there's some kind of mind control being used on people which introduces a subliminal message into their heads( in this case racist paranoia) and then something triggers a violent aggressive response. Somewhere these kids are getting manipulated by some technological means and its being done to create a need to turn to the government for help. Even if it means sacrificing our rights and quality of life to do it. I think at risk or easily controlled people that " snap" and commit mass shootings and these gangs that attack have some kind of conditioning that sets them off. maybe its in games, internet videos, music, digital recordings.
Any gang of kids should set off warning bells and invite a police presence, period. That stupid woman cackling on the video didn't seem to grasp the severity of the situation but she was a real piece of work.

The bottom line is that an armed society is a polite society and we need to adopt a widespread policy of ventilating these thugs regardless of the color of their skin. When these goons realize they're going to end up as lawn sprinklers maybe they'll leave other people alone.

How can LEO's handle situations like this without body armor or other military gear?

By giving the power back to We the People .

That dude should have had an AA-12 strapped to his back with a drum clip and about 300 shotgun shells.

I've been told whites make easy targets.

They expect whites to not fight back.

How can this be deemed a "fight"?

This is a pack of animals attacking the weaker pray, simple as that. It's also racism and a hate crime... But fight? Nah....

The shaky witness video is gaining shares on social media by the minute with angry comments questioning if this is a racially charged hate crime.

In this clip you see several black teenagers beating one white teen.

But the witness says this clip is just a tiny snapshot of what happened in the entire parking lot. He states, blacks, whites, girls and boys were all part of the vicious pack.

“Were all of the victims white?” asked WREG’s Elise Preston.

“No, they were black and white. Will is white, Brian is black. and then my other friend, Brandon, he`s black as well,” replied the witness.

News Channel 3 slowed down the video and noticed the security guard is dragging a black teen away from the crowd.

The witness identified that teen as another Kroger employee knocked unconscious after he tried to stop the mob from attacking customers.

The police record now shows that 3 people were beaten by the mob...2 black and 1 white...

There are topics to be discussed here apart from RACE BAITING..

Mr. Sauser, the father of the boy who is beaten in the video summarizes it..

The aftermath of the attack has generated outrage across Memphis -- and to some extent the nation. Many have suggested what happened in the Kroger parking lot was a hate crime. Mr. Sauser’s son is white. His attackers are black.

But Mr. Sauser says this is not about race. This is about the the breakdown of the American family. And he said there needs to be a national conversation about the issue.

“No one talks about this,” he said. “There’s no family structure — kids who’ve never had a dad. What kind of life is that? Not a single person can replace your dad — not a single person can. These kids have to have families.”

Skin color does not determine an aptitude for violence.

Your post is one of the most racist I have seen ATS tolerate in a while.

Anyone who lives around these types of sub-human garbage that hasn't armed themselves and their family are living in a god damn dream world. Concealed carry is available in many of your states now and there's absolutely ZERO excuse to be unarmed while working or living among these thugs. You guys in the U.S. are extremely lucky to have the option to CC, here in Canada our asinine laws only allow criminals to carry guns. 99% of these violent useless turds live in cities like Toronto around the same ignorant morons who support being completely unarmed -the irony. (one reason I would never live there again).

If you're old enough to remember the 1992 riots in L.A. then you're old enough to remember that the people who were safe were the ones that were armed, like the Korean Community protecting their stores and property with high powered rifles and other community members that banded together to protect their homes. Get it together people, stop living in a dream world, it's going to explode one day and it could do so in your city. Keep those groupings tight, 99% of these losers can't hit the broad side of a barn anyways.

a reply to: Indigo5

The two blacks were employees who stepped in to try to stop it. Like I mentioned before. Good people who do not see color. Do not confuse that with the fact that a group of 100 black youth attacked a single white guy. I mean, if it is not racial, head on down to the hood and trying to knock some low level drug thugs off the corner. No, they want skinny scared white guys who they figure more than likely are not packing. That is not race is simply this country as it stands right now.

it is sad...very very sad because I have kids who are growing up and do not need to see this or have it explained. These kids are ruining what every hard working minority has strived for. These kids did not stare down dogs or lines of crackers wanting to beat some ass. They are the product of environment like the father of the kid who was attacked stated.

Multi-generational poverty, a culture of violence, Socio-economic factors...all explain but do not excuse the behavior.

Take a paint brush to history and reverse the irrelevant pigmentation's of black and white and you would see an ignorant white teenage mob behaving the same.

Have you ever spent time in the impoverished backwoods of the south or portions of Appalachia? Scary enough for a fellow white person, let alone people of color.

Thinking about how to break cycles of multi-generational poverty...not just for African Americans (who do suffer disproportionately from the same) is a question worth asking.

So is the question of why the unemployment rate for African Americans grew twice as fast and twice as large as non-African Americans during the economic crisis..

But skin pigmentation is the least relevant topic for discussion.
