PITTSBURGH -- An attack in Pittsburgh's Oakland neighborhood earlier this month may have been the result of a violent game known as "Point 'Em Out, Knock 'Em Out," in which attackers identify random targets and attempt to knock them out.
The attacks are usually recorded and sometimes posted to the Internet.
Just after midnight on March 17, police said as many as nine men and one woman targeted University of Pittsburgh students sitting on a wall on Dithridge Street.
The attack left a 19-year-old student with a concussion, a fractured sternum and a partially collapsed lung.
Police said a female videotaped the beating and could be heard yelling, "Kick him again."

AKA “Knockout King.”
Anybody remember “Bum Fights”?
Let me guess, the perps are Amish.
Watch the video and see the descriptions of some of the attackers:
5-6” 130 pounds
5-11” 150 pounds
Some have made the point that the Florida teen (Tayvon) that was shot was too small (6-0 to 6-3”) 160+ pounds to attack anyone.
so im from pittsburgh, i saw this story locally, and ive read about it in the papers....how can you have nine people doing random attacks...no description of the perps at all??
Not a word about what “minority” these scumbags belong to. Something tells me they are not crackers.
Any wonder that people are arming themselves. The predators are moving out of their self generated jungle. Lock and load.
I think certain groups are being thought of as weak. Perps will keep pushing and will be surprised when the inevitable happens.
This is not a game, it is a crime. Sheesh!
It's only a "crime" because it's being defined by the white man's legal system that way, crackuh.
Fast and furious didn’t have the effect that they wanted. What if they start arming holder’s people?
Never let a crisis go to waste.
They look like Obama's son, if he had one.
Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.....
I bet it was racial. Time for white people to riot?
If they come after me they’re going to get a surprise!
Yeah, went to home defcon 2 last week with all the rhetoric about the Martin thing...defcon 2, load all magazines.
Today off to range to brush up on some skills...point shooting and off hand shooting.
A band of perps attacking my home are known here as moving targets.
I guess that’s what TM (no copyright infringement) was doing with Zimmerman - playing the “knockout game” by continuously banging Zimmerman’s head against the concrete. How’d that work out for ya then, obama’s son?
At about :50 in the video, 3 descriptions of perps are given: 2 whites, 1 black (of 9 males and 1 female).
Right.. we won't know what "minority" they're from until they go room temp after catching a leaden projectile through the face. Then, we'll hear it ad nauseum.
For those here too lazy or stupid to watch the video before spouting off:
The report has text descriptions of 2 white males and 1 black male in the video.
One black on black attack is shown.
Plus unrelated months old video of a subway knockout black on black that was posted here months ago.
One gets the impression WTAE is going way out of their way to cover up who is seriously hurting people enough to hospitalize them..
“Well, I am the mother of one of the college students attacked, and yes they mention a group of boys and one girl attacked a group of innocent college kids.
The girl they mention was filming the entire attack. They took no money just some clothing and a watch.
There was no confrontation that provoked this attack.
It appears to be some sort of sick gang initiation It happened Friday evening and not in the middle of the night.
The attackers were both white and black.”
Evidently there are droopy pants scumbag “wiggas” involved here.
Gut them open first, from belly to chive, as they are beyond useless and have no excuse for acting like feral thugs.
What about the other seven who aren’t described?
Then there'll be a lot less of Holders peeps producing Co2.
I carry sufficient rounds to dose each of the six with two and still not need to reload.
No doubt they are picking on university campii to minimize the odds that their chosen victim is armed
That's why they targeted university students. You don't qualify for CCW until 21, and even if an older student has CCW, possession of a firearm on university premises is prohibited.
1. Shall we assume the attackers are people who would look like Obama’s sons?
2. That the press doesn’t care because the story won’t gin up the black vote - FOR liberal elites? ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qBFOmUXR080 )
3. That poverty pimps and race baiters won’t swarm the area looking for guilty white liberals to shake down.
4. That President Bush will NOT call the victim or the victims family...
5. That the MSM will NOT run front page ‘outrage’ stories/
The one punched me in the left eye, one student said. (I was) completely unprepared, and I was kind of stunned on the ground.
There was a bunch of guys around him, like from a gang, another student said. They just started coming after me, hitting me and bashing my head off the car.
One of the victims suffered a concussion, saying the attackers used his head as a human cannonball to bash cars and side mirrors.
I’m going out on a limb here to predict that these were more of 0bama0’s ostensible “sons”.
The student, whose watch was stolen, initially didnt report the incident to police because he was afraid, but came forward at the urging of his parents.
This sort of thing doesn’t happen in Arizona, for some reason. Oh, yeah, because the perps would be stood up on planks in front of the dry goods store.
Where the Revs Sharptoon and Jesse Jackoff????????
Applegate fan, huh?
Unfortunately, some of these "friendships" don't turn out so well.
There are also Pittsburgh area adults who have interracial friendships because we have something in common and enjoy the company. I confess to being in that category.
Unfortunately, there are others whose commonality is being criminal, soulless hoodlums. That's what I think we saw on display on Dithridge Avenue on this particular Friday evening.
Hmmmm! Maybe a good place for Zimmerman to hide out.
Then it won’t be the Knockout game anymore. It will be the Random Assassination Game.
People all over the nation see these videos because of the internet. Is it any wonder that people have an immediate negative response when seeing TIH (Thugs In Hoodies)?
This is part of the reason so many more people are arming themselves and carrying.
But these chuckleheads haven’t got the memo yet. Trayvon Martin did, much to his shortlived dismay.
Contrary to your assumption, for some of us video doesn’t make it through our proxy.
Beyond that, video takes too much time. It can’t be easily skimmed, whereas text can.
Also I encourage shooters to practice shooting from a on your back prone position because if caught unaware, this in most likely where you will wind up. At least do some drawing and dry fire drills.
Remember, if you go down, it will be Riverdance-Urban Remix on you. Plan accordingly.
“Yeah, went to home defcon 2 last week “
That is good for the home, but while outside in the yard, or walking around the hood I always carry an extremely sharp easily deployed blade large enough to make someone think twice about mischief.
Kid (smartassed teen)at the bus stop 6 months ago “You ever been shot?” To which I responded “You ever been stabbed?” He shut up and walked away.
More range time sounds good though. :)
Time for a new game. .45 for the knocker
>No doubt they are picking on university campii to minimize the odds that their chosen victim is armed
Well actually the University of Pittsburgh is a rather different campus environment. It’s plopped in the middle of a city neighborhood with campus buildings interspersed with private buildings and businesses. While the students themselves are unlikely to be carrying, plenty of others in the area might be.
On the downside, other than the local shopkeeps, everyone there will likely be either Pitt or CMU students, staff or faculty all of which are not permitted guns on campus.
I do go back there every year, and PA is kind enough to offer reciprocity on CCW.
Picking up a Glock soon then it is off to the range. Don’t want to have to waste a shell.
I reccommend the Glock 22 or 23, chambered for 40 S&W. But if you shoot the 40 cal and don’t like the recoil, with a $100 barrel change (available from Wolf) you can shoot 9mm and with hollow points in 124 or 147 gr the hit is powerful but the recoil is markedly reduced.
