As 1010 WINS’ Gary Baumgarten reported, leaders of the black and Jewish communities joined together Sunday on the steps of Brooklyn Supreme Court to repudiate the violent “knockout game.”
The game — in which youths sucker-punch unsuspecting strangers for kicks — has seen black assailants attack a number of Jewish victims. On Dec. 1, however, Taj Patterson, a 22-year-old black man, said he was beaten by a group of Hasidic Jews in Williamsburg.
Forgive me but I can't back this up with any online confirmations as of yet.
10 10 WINS the AM radio station that gives news weather and traffic in NYC is reporting that the Jewish community has joined the game last night. They are saying that a group of Jewish guys attacked a black guy in the city, possibly playing the knock out game.
If this is true it's going to start something that could get out of control really fast. As soon as I can find any more information I'll put links here. Anyone who can find out anything else please share, I'd like to hear the whole story..
Wow if this is true, this could easily escalate to something bigger. We all know that hate crimes against black people get blown out of proportion. While the knockout game was getting marginalized while it was against white people, now it could get ugly if people like Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton start speaking up on the black people's behalf. In other words this could be the start of a race war.
It is an alarming trend that is spurring outrageous incidents across the country. It is deplorable, reprehensible and inexcusable. It is insane thuggery, and it is unequivocally wrong. These kids are targeting innocent people, and in many cases specifically targeting Jewish folks. We would not be silent if it were the other way around, and we will not be silent now. This behavior is racist, period. And we will not tolerate it.
