CAMBRIDGE (CBS) Cambridge police say the man wanted for sucker punching at least three people over the weekend is not part of a disturbing national trend known as the knockout game. The series of unprovoked attacks happened in broad daylight Saturday afternoon between Massachusetts Avenue and Trowbridge Street. In this first incident, according to a Cambridge police report, a man told officers he was walking towards Central Square when the suspect walked directly towards him.

The Cambridge Police are acting “stupidly”.
obvious hate crime, too
My son lives just north of Cambridge and often works in Cambridge (musician, night work) I worry about him a lot. Slight, under six foot, blond.
The Cambridge police, like the people of Cambridge, have a virtually infinite capacity for self-deception when confronted by any challenge to their Leftist mindset.
Ah, of course. It was not ‘knock-out’ it was ‘swing ‘n’ punch’ — thanks for clarifying.
And the police are talking about no motivation for a knockout game?
Why not wait and ask the suspect what the motiation was, if and when they get him. Is their an agenda here?-Tom
Blackjack, taser, bear spray, knife.
If he is on the small side and not a fighter high quality bear spray, such as Counter-Assault, may be best.
You can find it online. They make different sizes and varieties, some of which are allowed even in restrictive states.
Batting practice isn’t part of a baseball game either. Even so, a lot of baseballs get hit very hard.
The story of how Skip Gates and Obama neutered the
Cambridge Police Department.We now know the color of the
Cambridge Police Department, yellow.
So lets see, wetbacks walk around like
they own the place and blacks can attack
white people at will and get away with it. The Republicans
are turning out to be socialist democrats in disguise and
conservatives are the only people in America who are held
accountable for their actions. Sounds like a replay of the
fall of the Roman empire.
Hmmm. Wonder if he would carry it.
Okay, it’s not a game. It’s just a series of assaults by someone who is crazy or hateful, and may or may not be motivated by race, and may or may not be motivated by the attention given the knockout game.
The game actually involves points, and videos, and peer groups, although it also is a series of assaults by people who are hateful, and moral idiots, and likely motivated by race.
If the police and media never said “knockout game” and only “knockout assault”, it would be a good thing.
Notice the intentional over-definition?
“Investigators do not believe this was an example of the so-called “knockout game,” where people intentionally commit assaults, videotape them, and post them online.”
By adding more and more qualifications to the knockout game, they intentionally exclude those knockout games that do not conform to the new rule.
There is no part of the knockout game that requires those doing it to video record them, especially if they are acting on their own, or to post those videos to the Internet. In fact, it is likely that the majority of knockout games were not video recorded or posted to the Internet.
And, as a note to the journalist and the police, almost nobody “videotapes” anymore.
If CBSLocal (the same one underwriting a website that is cheerleading for Obamacare) then why should I distrust them?
(I heard an Internet radio ad for it, and checked it out...yep. They were absolutely shilling for Obamacare.
"DING DING DING! What do we have for him, Johnny?"
I think “Violent, random race-based assault” would suffice for me.
Liberals don’t seem to think we can talk about this because our sole motivation to them is to incite a race war.
My counter to that is that their behavior is going to incite a race war. (”They” being the violent criminals and the liberals who encourage it by pretending it doesn’t exist, and giving all kinds of excuses for those doing it)
This may well have simply been a nut on a rampage, but even if he was a nut on a rampage, is he not a racist as well if all his victims were non-black?
There are plenty of nut-case racists on the left, one only has to look at Louis Farrakhan to know that is a fact.
I don't know if it would have helped in this case but I never put my hands in my pockets and always keep my head up and on a bit of a swivel; a legacy from my years in the Army no doubt. A little situational awareness might have helped but there is no way any of your suggestions would have made any difference in this scenario.
