Three injured by serial 'sucker puncher' in spate of weekend attacks in Massachusetts
Daily Mail UK ^

Posted on 02/17/2014 4:05:45 PM PST by matt04

Police are searching for a man suspected of punching at least three people over the weekend in Cambridge, Massachussetts.

One of the attacks was caught on a Massachusetts Avenue furniture store's video surveillance.

The disturbing footage shows a tall man striding rapidly behind a couple on the sidewalk before coming level with them and punching the man in the side of the head.

Both the man and woman were knocked to the ground by the punch.

According to the Boston Herald, the suspect yelled, 'Oh, you think that's funny?' before punching the man, and kept walking without breaking stride after the attack.

Another man reported that the assailant walked straight up to him at around 3:30pm, mirrored his movements as he tried to get out of his way, then punched him twice in the eye.

The victim had to be treated in hospital for his injuries.

A third man told police he too had been punched in the face with no reason and gave a description matching the suspect's.

...

Police say the attacks do not appear to be an example of the so-called 'knockout game' in which people hit strangers, videotape the assault and post it online.

How much you want to bet puncher was Black—victim white? Looks like the old racists were right—Black men can not be trusted and will—if given a chance punch or kill any whitey they find alone. Be warned!

You know, I can see this happening already-the MSM knows that if they just continue to ignore the pattern of this, that people will eventually lose their sense of outrage over the multiple instances and begin to filter it out, because nothing is being done and it’s not being presented for what it is, a pattern of hate crime against whites.

As seem all too usual, the authorities are trying awfully hard to conclude it is not the knockout game. You need a written confession and video statements to conclude that it is black on white predation and even then, officials will try to explain it away.

The problem is that the “game” does not leave even a situationally-aware target a chance to defend (unlike most conventional muggings).

Even on “racial realism” sites, people are already beginning to burn out on the stories (always found in either foreign or local, never national American mainstream media), of repeated crimes by blacks against whites, even the atrocities. TPTB and their media lapdogs are counting on just that, defeated apathy from whites knowing that this will never be presented as the issue which it is, a pattern of crimes against whites, because they’re white.

From an Internet source.. "Cambridge is home to two of the world's most prominent universities, Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Cambridge has also been home to Radcliffe College, once one of the leading colleges for women in the United States before it merged with Harvard."

The crime has already been committed.. I am not wishing harm to anyone. I am hoping however that the victims are progressives who as is their wont condemn the rest of us as racists.

Exactly. Even for those who carry, it’s a matter of the thug sneaking up on them and sucker punching, sometimes hard enough to knock the victim unconscious or even kill them.

Can anyone believe that is a white had kidnapped a young boy and blowtorched him to death, that it would not be presented in American MSM for the atrocity it would have been, and a campaign to “stamp out racist crimes against blacks” would have been enacted?

No not at all, you see the attacker was obviously Black so there has to be some other excuse, hence mentally ill or on drugs. Now if was a White man who did this it would not only be the knockout game but also a hate crime.

Hmmm. "People"? Which kind of people? "Strangers"? What type of stranger?

It's all soooooo mysterious.

I don't wish harm on any innocent person, but these days, even getting beat or having a loved one killed doesn't impel "progressives" to finally see or admit the truth. It's astounding, but these days, even after such a crime, they still point their fingers at whites as the blame for black criminals.

Why should I have to read the DailyMail for a description of the perp? (rhetorical) Media has an obligation to the community they serve, to include details, not Omit important information that could save citizens from serious injury or death.

Of course they don't they seem more like an expression of brotherly love.

Even video isn't enough now. In Chicago, a deputy was recently the victim of attempted armed robbery at a service station by three "youths". He handed over his wallet, and then pretended to fumble for other money or something while getting his gun, which was in back of him. The thigs kept their guns on him after he forked over the wallet-ie, they were going to shoot him anyway. He got his gun out and shot one of them first, the other two scattered, This was all on video.

The one he shot was killed. The other two finally turned themselves in. The lawyer for one of them is saying now that "you can't trust what the video says" or some such, even though the two remaining turned themselves in because of the video!

The details are on the Second City Cop blog, a Chicago LE blog.

The lesson for ALL white persons is to never, ever leave your house unarmed, and ALWAYS be aware of what is happening in YOUR vicinity!

IOW, keep your situational awareness meter pegged when you are out and about!

Stay safe, stay armed.

If true, hopefully the two survivors will be charge and convicted of the murder of their friend, who was no doubt, just about to turn his life around.

They have been so charged, as a "felony murder", ie, a murder committed upon a perpetrator in the commission of a crime. It can even be accidental "friendly fire", from what I understand, as long as the one killed was in the act of committing a crime. The blog goes into this, because some people were posting about "how can a murder not be felonious?"

I was thinking the same thing. Hopefully it’s liberals getting the crap knocked out of them. Maybe it will knock some sense into them. Doubtful, but.....

Ferals at it again (still). The media refuses and the “authorities” refuse to call a spade a spade. It is racial hatred, it is an assault, it is a hate crime.

This isn’t a “game” as the Liberal media would like people to think it is, to give the politically correct perpetrators a pass. These are anti-white hate crimes committed by little black racists. This is the chaotic new social dis-order, void of personal safety, common decency, and civilized behavior that the Liberal multi-cultists have forced upon us, and until America wakes up out of its blind obedience to Political Correctness and recognizes this behavior for what it is, ‘Black Racism/Anti-White Hatred’, and admit that it is a serious problem, violent crimes like these will only get worse.

If you read the article carefully, the media/authorities have defined the “knockout game” very narrowly, so they can claim most of these attacks aren’t knockout attacks. In order to be the “knockout game” to them, the attack must be recorded and then posted online, and based on some other articles I’ve read, it might also have to involve several “spectators” as well. If any of those ancillary elements are missing, then the attack isn’t a “knockout” attack.

Just more misleading by the media, since the only necessary elements of the knockout attack are the surprise attack and subsequent departure of the suspect, and possibly the races of the suspect and victim (I suspect blacks inflict the knockout game on each other too, though it’s never reported).

Someone once said that a conservative is a former LIEberal (well, the word used was “liberal,” but I do not use the word any longer — they are LIEberals, because they LIE!) who has been mugged.

I have been a conservative all my life — never been physically mugged, but have been metaphorically mugged most of my life by LIEberals.

Don’t likem, and don’t associate withem!

Maybe, the “Knock-Out Game” perps will make conservatives out of the LIEberals they sucker punch?

Maybe, in a round-about way, these thugs are doing us a favor — converting LIEberals to conservatives?

I rather doubt the “Knock-Out Game” victims feel that way, but there is a sort of symmetry in this process, isn’t there?

Maybe a “Knock-0ut Game” perp will pick on a conservative who believes in the Second Amendment, refuses to be a victim of random violence and blows the perp away?

Wonder how many perps would have to go down before the word got out that it is dangerous to play the “Knock-Out Game?”

Most of the incidents I have read about seem to occur in cities with very strict gun-control laws. I’m sure that’s just a coincidence though.

Oh, the NYT reported on one-the one instance in which a white man sucker punched a black man. That's the only time a national msm source saw fit to report on it, not the many, many instances when it's been a black perp and a white or non-black victim.

Amazing, My grandparents (RIP) would have been horrified how Jesse and Al, and Barry have hijacked and bastardized the civil rights movement. The race-baiters won’t have a job if they let go. I never thought I’d see the day when it’s legal and encouraged to discriminate against low melanin content people and encourage ethnic superiority, by the Govt. Heck, I’m horrified and sickened by it all.
