Knockout Game Victim Chases Down Attackers In Baltimore, Calls Them ‘Cowards’ [Video]
The Inquisitr News ^ | June 29, 2014

A victim of the knockout game decided that he would not let the teenage attackers get away with the violent assault, chased them down, and managed to bring them to justice.

In a related report by The Inquisitr, the idea behind the knockout game is that a group or an individual targets the first person they see and attempts to knock the unsuspecting person unconscious with just one punch. Media reports have focused on “black mobs” going after Jews when targeting people. There is also a book that documents the trend toward violence called White Girl Bleed a Lot: The Return of Racial Violence and How the Media Ignore It. But others claim that race has nothing to do with the knockout game and that is has existed for many years under the guise of different names.

In response to the recent knockout game attacks, Baltimore City Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said that adults need to be more involved in the lives of their kids and he was also disgusted by the attackers:

“They don’t understand the consequences. If you knock someone out, you could think its a joke and you’ll hurt somebody – that person could die. And then your life is ruined for some stupidity that you and your friends think is fun. It’s just not worth it.”

A victim who has identified only as Eric was not thinking about the politics of the situation when he and his brother were attacked by a large group of 20 to 25 teens riding on bikes. Eric says he was walking down the street when the teens punched him in the ear and slapped his brother on the head:

“The moment I got hit, that split second, I knew what was going on. I’ve heard the stories, and I wasn’t going to let these kids get away. When they realized I didn’t go down — I just chased after them — they weren’t really smart because they hit us on the bottom of the hill and tried to escape on BMX bikes up a hill. People who play the knockout game are cowards. There was 20 of them and two of us. The moment we chased them, they all went away. I really just wanted to make sure that we caught the kid and made sure he couldn’t do that to somebody else.”

Eventually the teens ditched the bikes but Eric and his brother chased down the 16-year-old boy who had hit them and then called police. The cops arrested the knockout game king only to discover the boy had stolen a cell phone taken during an assault and robbery. In addition, the teen may have been playing the knockout game for a while and could be tied to other incidents.

House arrest with an ankle monitor?

That will take a bite out of crime.

I just returned home from a long trip. One thing I noticed while traveling out of my normal well considered pathways, obastard’s people are getting more and more belligerent and haughty.

This will not end well. None of it will.

When in human history has a 12% minority, poorer than the 76% majority and more concentrated in urban areas, won a civil war? I can’t think of one such incident and I’m a huge history buff.

I often wonder, has their culture hit rock bottom, or can they continue to devolve even further?

“existed for many years under the guise of different names.”

BS. I’m sure it happened sometimes but it is only just now it’s become a “culture” thing found all the time, everywhere.

“In response to the recent knockout game attacks, Baltimore City Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said that adults need to be more involved in the lives of their kids and he was also disgusted by the attackers:”

“He” is a “she”. I think. Last I knew.

Spare me the mealy-mouthed garbaje. Maybe if you got rid of the welfare culture there would be more dads “involved” and moms would actually do something useful with them.

“They don’t understand the consequences.”

BS. Spare me again. They damn well understand - they just are evil cretins who don’t give a @Q$#!$.

It might help them understand if one of the consequences would be THEY got knocked on their @Q#@. THERE is a consequence for you, scum!

Al Sharpton claims to rep them. I’d say they’ve hit bedrock.

When the government sides with that 12%.

Changes the equation.

Not really, when that 76% is well-armed. Otherwise, perhaps it would. There aren’t nearly enough Hellfire missiles, soldiers and lawmen to even start confiscating 600 million weapons.

Get rid of the women, the young and the old and we are talking about maybe 3% of the population committing 80% of the violent crime.
Anybody see a problem here?

I think there is more bottom left. They have not started finger painting with their excrement or anything like that yet. I’ve seen that before though.

Someone rightly pointed out that each time they have rioted they burn their own stuff then we pay for it to be rebuilt. yea

This nation is letting 13%, no a fraction of that 13%, keep us in turmoil. I think the reparations have been more than paid and it is time we demand restitution. Interesting, 13% is so visible. Why?

Never let a crisis go to waste. And if there is no crisis, use fools to create one.

There was a similar incident, which I saw on the B’more news on TV recently.

A young man was visiting Baltimore with his mother to look at colleges. Outside his hotel, he was assaulted by a group on bicycles. Probably the same group of punks. But he did not pursue them.

I’d love to read about someone with a baseball bat giving them their due.
