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”.

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.

There has been no arrest yet.

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.

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.

Minutes earlier, the suspect had apparently been inside the Garden at The Cellar Restaurant, where he allegedly tried to punch the chef, Brandon Arms.

Looks like the police may be right. Sounds like the guy was some unstable nut case

“We believe at this point, that these assaults were not a case of “Knockout”, but a situation where an individual who was either under the influence or suffering from some type of mental illness was responsible for the assaults,” Cambridge Police Deputy Superintendent Jack Albert told WBZ in an email.

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.

This is much ado about nothing.

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.

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.

Did you watch the video? The victim was walking arm in arm with a woman on his left and had his collar turned up, his head down and his hands in the pockets of his coat. He might as well have had "VICTIM" stenciled on his back. The attacker came from behind on the victim's right and punched him in the ear, knocking him to the ground. There was absolutely no warning or time for a defense.

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.

PC must try to explain these away. PC says minorities cannot be racist and that white privilege causes this animosity.

Did you read my post?

Did you take five seconds to see what the exchange was even about?

No—don’t bother answering, because it’s obvious you didn’t.

Instead you took it upon yourself to barf a clot of idiocy at me that had no relevance to the brief conversation I was having with another Freeper—a kind, decent and concerned Freeper—not you.

SO SHUT THE HELL UP.

I don’t know. Young people can be stubborn that way, and musicians—well, you probably know as well as I do how THEY can be...ha.

If you found him one of the small Counter-Assault canisters and told him how concerned you are, maybe he would think about it.

You clearly care a great deal about him. Write it in a note if you can’t manage that kind of conversation with him.

If you get him a small defense spray and let him know how you feel...that’s all you can do. Let me know if you have any difficulty making your way through the Counter-Assault web page...if I remember correctly some of their listings are a little confusing. You can send me a private message anytime.

Good luck!

Wasp and hornet spray with a range of 20+ feet is widely available.....

As if all practice skirmishes in the “knockout game” are recorded for later coach review...

The only ones who think there is more to this “game” than bragging rights are the media and idiot cops who insist that these civil rights violations are nothing but a prank.

Take your beatdown, comrade.
