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). Other names given to assaults of this type include "knockout", "knockout king", "point 'em out, knock 'em out", "bomb", and "polar-bearing" or "polar-bear hunting" (allegedly called such when the victim is white). 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. 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

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..
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'.
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.
It major findings were stated as:
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.

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.
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 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.”
