BURTON, MI Two 16-year-old Flint boys are facing assault charges after they allegedly punched a 52-year-old teacher from Otisville in the head while he shopped at Wal-Mart then posted video of the alleged attack online as part of the so-called "knock-out" game.
The assault took place around 7 p.m. March 17 at the Wal-Mart on Court Street in Burton.
The man was shopping alone when a teen ran up and punched the man while another teen filmed the attack with a cellphone, according to police. They then fled the scene.
The victim, a teacher at an area school, suffered minor injuries, police said.
Burton police Lt. Mike Odette said one of the teacher's students saw video of the alleged attack on a social media site.
Police were able to identify the teens with the help of someone else who recognized one of the teens on the video, Odette said.
Odette said police have not been able to locate the video online.
When the teens were brought in, Odette said they admitted it was them.

Obviously not a hate crime?
More feral “teens”.
certainly not a good thing, but if the aclu had not taken prayer out of the schools, things could be worse.
Troubled youths, nothing more.
A myth. Right wing media creation. Didn’t happen and doesn’t exist.
Oprah Winfrey didn't just say, "Don't bring 'em to my show," she said:
"There are still generations of older people who were born and breed and marinated in that prejudice and racism and they just have to die."And she was not referring to the victims of racism.
Her comments IMO can influence Knockout Games and other acts of violence. White victims should sue her for millions if the attackers were aware of her "whites just have to die" comment.. it's worked for $PLC suing a white supremacist group for the crimes of non-members.
Nah, it’s justice ya know. The guy had it coming simply because he was blessed with ‘white privedge’.
Sick world and getting sicker.
Whites, under an unprecedented propaganda assault, and a collapse in morals have lost all cohesion as a people. At one time such assaults would have been reacted to by the entire white community; i.e. an assault on one is an assault against all. For the reasons stated whites will be very desirable victims; e.g. "easy marks!"
The public has a right to see the mugshots of these thugs. The fact that they’re minors is all the more reason.
The cause of action is technically known as “vicarious liability”
The media is silent because they think this is just great. After all, Whitey is evil, racist and oppressive. He has it coming to him.
It would have been an easy search for the video had the police gone to the WorldStarHipHop website. They host hundreds of videos of such fights, knockout games, wildings, etc.
I am white. I have always been a proponent of ending segregation and treating people fairly. I have mentored black children for many years, and have several very close friends who are black. I have made sure my family attended churches and civic groups that were mixed.
Over the years, I have been mugged or home-invaded or had my car trashed on five separate occasions. All of the perps were black. I did not and do not live in dangerous neighborhoods. I have been accused of racism more times than I can count, for all sorts of trivia, by co-workers when I called them to account for not delivering the work they had promised, by motorists who were endangering others, or for asking our community board to enforce the rules even-handedly.
I am tired.
I see no one to blame but the parents and education system.
Who breeds, raises and educates(???)a bunch of idiots that - in their home area -
attack someone that possibly may know them -
post their crime -THAT THEY FILMED- on a place that police and their fellow neighbors can view at will.
Eventually they may ‘catch on’ that they will get ‘caught’ but we have to be careful so they don’t.
Then, what do you do with them?
If you suspend them from school, that is basically ‘playing into their hands’, jail is nothing more than a place where they can hone their new found skills OR get them so screwed up there will NEVER be a chance they will contribute to society.
I believe they are ‘beyond’ embarrassment and posting their pictures etc just puts them in ‘hero’ status which will tend to prompt people to ‘better the act’.
Are the parents still blocked from getting reading lists (they should be so lucky the kid reads) or grades and ‘kept in the dark’ as to the kids activities?
If that is the case, (in a reasonable world) you can’t really ‘blame’ the parents as the punishment phase has been taken out of their hands.
Other than ‘shooting them on the spot’ s/ what is a viable solution???
Yes. Thank you. $PLC sued white supremacist Tom Metzger using it. A couple of skinheads murdered a black man. IIRC Metzger's connection was the skinheads admitted to being familiar with Metzger's hate speech from some telephone message site (this was 20+ years ago) that skin heads were invited to call. link to $PLC
Seems to me that if the teens were aware of Winfrey's comments that her stature is worth a 1000 phone calls of the type that convicted Metzger.
Nowhere in the article does it say the two teens were black and the victim was white. Therefore, it’s safe to assume the two teens were black and the victim was white.
