Zack Finkelstein was waiting at a St. Louis bus stop on Thursday when a black man beat him in an apparent knock out game attack.
Zack was going to have lunch with his grandmother.
He never made it.
There have been dozens of knock out game attacks in St. Louis the last two years. An elderly Vietnamese man from St. Louis was murdered in a knock out attack in 2011. KMOV reported:
Police are searching for a suspect after a man was beaten while walking to a bus stop Thursday afternoon.
21-year-old Zack Finkelstein was walking to a bus stop so he could meet his grandmother for lunch when someone beat him. The incident occured on Hord Avenue. His brother David, saw him immediately after the incident.
When I saw him at first, I just thought I need to get him better, David Finkelstein said. If he needs to go to the hospital, I need to know hes alright.(continued)

I wonder if Zack is pro or anti? I wonder what he is now.
Zack Finkelstein needs to be brought up on civil rights charges of using his face to harm a black man’s fist.
I’m in....powder is dry....just can’t go in alone.
Wuz dat “justice fo’ Tray-VON?”
Alone? We’re the majority! If we only knew it.
I am sick of all this S)&$)/. Long since time to start shooting. I’m sick of the flash mobbing, the asinine KO games, the whiney protests, the ball game riots. People need to start being shot or it will never end.
It’s alright, no damage done. Rumor has it that the assailant was carrying Skittles.
He was just going to have lunch with his grandma when he crossed paths with a black man.
I wonder what our POS president will have to say about this.
Another victim of Barry the Racist Soetoro’s press conference on Friday advising his “people” to take it to the creepy ass crackas and win one for the trayvon.
It’s OK. It’s for “Trayvon”...
Let them work on their own race problems after they spend some times with their little gangsta subculture problem.
Blacks will stop getting profiled when they stop committing violent crimes vastly out of proportion to their percentage of the population.
But there are no places where whites feel like they aren’t allowed to go safely.
I wonder why his white privilege didn’t shield him from this attack.

That's old enough for a concealed carry permit in most states, isn't it?
Let's call this what it is: A vicious and unprovoked racial hate crime.
Sounds like one of those white hispanic troublemakers!
About that...can Barry really hear power door locks from outside the car? Especially on a city street with engines running etc?
That man that whoopp ass on Zack could have been obama 20 years ago, except barry can’t throw a punch cuz he a wuz.
“...when a black man beat him...”
The problem I’ve seen is that in all the videos I’ve watched that have caught these assaults, I don’t see how a concealed weapon would help the victim. they’re all sucker punched and then the aggressor runs off.
You would have to preemptively shoot any black that enters your personal space. My personal space is about a 10 foot radius. This would make it difficult to be on a subway or walk through a bus station. Will have to get a vest that can hold 20 or 30 extra clips.
Rachel Jeantel heard T-bone’s foam fall on wet grass.
Black people have very sharp ears: They can hear racist thoughts in our heads that we may not even be thinking.
Thass what Ah’m talkin’ about.
“We heard that!”
Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Rachel Jeantel and the Martins
I’d think in such a case, an armed bystander would prove useful.
I’m not sure Ms. Jeantel could really sign anything, being cursive impaired.
You're absolutely right. However public transportation in most states prohibit concealed carry of weapons. Just last week a KC bus driver was stabbed by 2 men (one a 14 year old), and they're talking about building a box around the driver for his protection.
Soon we will all have to go walking around in boxes.
3S treatment needed.
Hopefully there is one around when you need one. So do we now have to travel in packs, like the ferals themselves?
...I dont see how a concealed weapon would help the victim. theyre all sucker punched and then the aggressor runs off.
I believe you're right, Roos_Girl, though the combination of firearms in citizens' hands and improved situational awareness could help in some cases. "If it saves even one life...!" as I've heard politicians say.
True. The only thing you have to protect yourself is situational awareness. Never trust an approaching person of any race if you are in a situation like waiting for a bus
What did this racist Cracka’ do to instigate this Black child to push him to the point of assaulting him?
Have the police arrested this Cracka’ yet?
If not, why not?
He must have been “Stalking” him, just like GZ was stalking that little boy St. Trayvon.
Is there a pic of the black victim as a young child posted yet?
I just don’t hear about the “knock out game” a lot in Texas. Maybe I just missed the coverage?
Had that happen the other day. Was waiting at a bus stop and some guy stopped to ask "Do you have the time" and I didn't like the looks of him so said No, and he muttered something and shambled off. Too often this "Do you have the time" request is a pretext for distracting someone enough to be able to assault/rob them.
That is the key. Most people, I suppose, go around in "white" awareness, not paying attention to their surroundings at all, whereas I have been taught to always go around in "yellow" awareness, always cognizant of who is nearby, where someone could be lurking, etc.
“.....when a black man beat him in an apparent knock out game attack....
No sense wasting time reading the rest of the article.
“People need to start being shot or it will never end.”...
Zimmerman already tried that and look what happened to him.
However, I do agree there is some serious need for some “killin”.
Justice for Jack!
In a case like that you’re probably right. I’ve heard that in some cases there are several assailants and if the initial attack doesn’t knock the victim out the rest of the pack swarms in. In that case a concealed weapon may help if the victim isn’t too stunned to employ it. Of course in a situation like that weapon retention may be a problem since the attackers are right on top of you.
Another way a concealed weapon can help is less direct. I’ve carried concealed since 1994 and it has helped me develop the habit of being more aware of potential attacks. The change in mindset is a definite asset.
Jennings is one of the most violent municipalities in St. Louis County. It also touches one of the most violent neighborhoods in St. Louis City proper, the Walnut Park neighbhorhood.
Being a white boy in Jennings is like swimming with a rumproast around your neck...
Is that a "Hate Crime?"
Our "leadership in Washington" are nothing but a bunch of petty thug tyrants.
It is inconceivable to me that these evil wretches were allowed to even obtain security clearances, let alone positions of power.
The sad fact is that we have massive political corruption and vote rigging in this nation, and our liberties and freedoms are gone. We just don't want to admit it.
We have a Police State in our airports, a militarized police force that barges down doors every day without Constitutional authority, restrictions on our Second Amendment rights, we are under surveillance through our computers, phones, and e-mails accounts, we can be held for over a year in secret prisons if the "State" determines we are a "terrorist", and on and on and on.
America is gone folks. Over half of the population are Takers and want more Free Stuff. The other half has been cowed into fear.
As a matter of self defense today, you have to come to terms that as a white person you could very well be the target of racial crime, particularly assault.
With this in mind, and understanding that the predator class prefers a sudden, blindside attack, you will have to adjust your positioning and posture. Recognizing the attack posture of your enemy is extremely important as well. They will approach looking from side to side for witnesses or those who might intervene (police). Very often they will sway to their strong hand side as a windup, then deliver the blow with body weight and force.
Remember, time equals distance, distance equals time.
The more distance you create from your assailant, the more time you have to deal with the threat.
In any fight, and especially with the tactics employed by the polar bear hunting class, your mission, if engaged, is not surviving, it’s winning. A large step in winning is staying in the fight, and not getting knocked unconscious.
So you must protect your head.
If ever engaged in conversation with one of the predatory class under circumstances that make you feel they could be a threat, steeple your fingers out in front of you just directly under your line of sight. This gives you a headstart if they decide to assault you. Even if you deflect a portion of the blow as it rolls off your forearms, then you are in a much better position than being proned out cold.
Also for those that shoot, practice shooting from hip and from laying on your back prone, shooting between your knees. If you don’t feel comfortable doing this or your range disallows it, dry fire this technique at home. Remember, most fights go to the ground. Count on that happening. It most certainly did with GZ.
I would also recommend a technique many of us in LE use. It’s called “Self-talk”. It’s a basic “If this_____ happens, then I do this______...”. It’s having a plan beforehand, practicing it in your mind from time to time, in order to spend less time thinking about what to do in critical incident, and more time ACTING in manner that leads to a positive resolution.
You got that right.
