Posted on 05/20/2014 11:23:34 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Houston METRO police need your help apprehending a man who is punching people on a rail platform.
According to surveillance video, a man walked up to a passenger who had just exited a train onto the platform at Main Street near Preston downtown and punched him in the face.
The video then shows the same man punching another man as he gets onto the train from the same platform.
METRO Police Chief Victor Rodriguez says he doesnt think the attacks are related to the so-called knockout game.
A review of the tape does not indicate that anybody else is involved, Rodriguez said. And, therefore, in the knockout game, you typically do that in front of an audience or in front of somebody whos at least taping it.
Despite these events, Rodriguez says Houston has one of the safest rail systems in the country.
If you know anything about these assaults, contact police.
Feed him a brick.
Oh, well, that makes me feel better. Good thing he's on the case.
This is the new and much more entertaining “Punch Face” game.
Maybe the lack of a description, IS a description.
Here is the video and news report associated with this savage incident:
I can see clearly now, the rain is gone...
at first I thought is was another UFO alien posing has a human being having an anxiety attack. Those aliens disguised as humans are constantly getting in trouble, you know. Most of our prison inmates are these types, you know. However, when I saw this video, what a bummer, man! No UFO alien sighting here! Not even a pie pan in the sky. I find out it was just another black dude. Not much excitement there. Close the bar! Just another boring day in paradise (darn!).
Odd that the KBXX-FM(Houston News92) article urgently requests help in ID-ing the perp--but no descriptive hint or help whatsoever is supplied by KBXX-FM--even though News92's very article describes the existence of a surveillance video that begs for a link in the search for the puncher.
Could KBXX-FM be holding back on that link out of PC delicacy?
No problem for the NY Daily News.
It offers a crystal clear view of the violent offender--no apologies necessary.
If Obama had a son, he’d look like that guy!
In Texas he might just run into a CCW....
The guy is black just like the rest of the Black perps that are smashing non black people in the head, the face wherever they can.
I believe someone is telling these black perps to do this.
I do not recall these types of crimes going on when Bush was in office. seems like these black perps are running a muck and have been ramping up their crap since 2009 when the biggest black perp was elected.
Well, if it wasn’t a space alien, then I thought it might be the Amish again. They are such brutes. If not a space alien or the Amish, then I figured there was only one other choice. You and I were both right, again.
Can’t argue with that.
No descriptive hint? They said “man,” didn’t they?
That narrows it down.
All metro police chiefs are politicians first, care about cops 2d and the populace comes in 3d.
Our so-called “justice system” protects thugs like this. This thug and thugs like him wouldn’t be a problem if we were allowed to deal with them. He needs to be weeded out of society.
A unprovoked black on white hate crime ? Who wudda thunk it? According to “Liberals” these daily violent attacks are urban myths. Notice how the Corrupt Liberal Media doesn’t even raise the possibility of this being so.
I was thinking it was Amish too. However, Amish are better than that.
The poLIcE deny that there IS a knockout game then proclaim that there is some kind of handbook of RULES for the knockout game.
Same as Islamist terrorism isn’t TERRORISM unless the terrorist is a card carrying member of an officially recognized terrorist group AND the organization issues an official press release taking responsibility, typically issued from their DC bureau office...
Yep, no doubt. I recall a few months ago, seeing on video, not sure if it was surveillance video, or cell phone video, but some dip stick tried to punch out a female. She fought back, and when the guy was on the ground, her male friend just drop kicked that POS right in the head. It is a wonder he survived a kick to the head like that, but I thought it was karma.
Perhaps this is someone’s “practice training” for the knockout game.
Does it at least register as a “hate crime” on the LBGT mayor’s list of human rights abuses in Houston? She’s working on some kind of tranny protection act while letting things like this get swept under the rug. She didn’t give a damn when two hispanic yutes pulled a gun on me and called me nigger repeatedly either.
Houston’s “light rail” doesn’t have a third rail, it has the street car wiring above the train.
>> Maybe the lack of a description, IS a description.
Aren't there security cameras at the stations? I know that the trains themselves are equipped with cameras. ODD that footage of the perp is being suppressed.
That's because Tom DeLay was fighting against federal funding of Houston's boondoggle rail system (it's one of the reasons the local Rats sought to take him out of office by any means necessary).
She would have certainly had your back had they called you gay.
First rule of knock out game is never talk about knock out game.
This started around 1992 from what I have read in the past.
“I believe someone is telling these black perps to do this.”

I think there are, but I don't think it is odd at all, to suppress this stuff. I am not much into conspiracy theories, but in this case, I believe there IS a conspiracy by many, to suppress the knockout game thing.
Click the newslink, a couple of pics clear as day. Young black male, 25 - 30 years, about 185 lbs in the five-ten to six foot tall range. Depending on the sales volume of “Stop Snitchin’” t-shirts in that town, he should be id’d fairly soon.
Oops, that’s the link in post #7. The original article is USELESS for helping to apprehend the assailant.
You’ve got that right.
That’s where I get on to go home everyday (unless they’re talking about the northbound platform, though the northbound “Preston” platform is a block up from Preston). I did see an evidently homeless guy walk past on the sidewalk last week, angrily babbling something while I was waiting for the train. Might be a likely candidate.
Okay. That’ not the Preston station. Main Street Square is several blocks south, not “near Preston.”
I was going to say, doing this in Texas seems like a quick way to die.
Just got to where I could look at the actual news report, so it apparently was the southbound Preston station, where I get on after work. Didn’t look like it in the still photos. All of the downtown platforms are on Main, with one called Main Street Square, so the description in the text story was misleading. In the morning I get off at Main Street Square, and when I got off a few minutes ago, there seemed to be an enhanced presence of regular cops, not just the Metro Police who occasionally check for tickets and fare cards.
The suspect, by the way, doesn’t look like the guy I saw last week. The guy I saw was older and shakier.
-— And, therefore, in the knockout game, you typically do that in front of an audience or in front of somebody whos at least taping it. -—
That must bring great comfort to the victim.
-— A man.
That narrows it down.
Well, if he threw a punch, he must have at least one arm. So that narrows it down even further.
What about knocked to the street because of their race is not your race, Ms Obama?
This for the toy train that's had AT LEAST 100 wrecks in its first year !!!
The very existence of a campaign of hate using a “knockout game” whether coordinated or just for bragging rights, should trigger a series of federal civil rights violation investigations (including the police departments that are suppressing reports of the incident and refusing to prosecute the guilty).
