Gateway Pundit ^ | July 19, 2013 | Jim Hoft

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.

(VIDEO-AT-LINK)

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 he’s alright.”(continued)

Zack Finkelstein needs to be brought up on civil rights charges of using his face to harm a black man’s fist.

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.

And whites are suppose to feel bad because we lock our car doors or cross the road when blacks are around. Long past time the black community took care of their own problems of racism.

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.

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.

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?

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.

improved situational awareness

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.

People make up such cute little names for the crimes committed by these thugs.

"knock out game" randomly beating an innocent person- so funny that it's not happening to them.

"bash mob" everybody terrorize innocent minimum wage workers, and steal whatever's not nailed down.

And one of my all time personal "pretty" name used "wilding" punching kicking raping and bashing in the skull of an innocent woman.

Such great fun! Until it starts being done to you and yours.

Maybe someone else will pick the cute names then.

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...

6'2" black assaulting an innocent young Jewish kid who is walking down the street to meet his elderly grandmother for lunch.

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.
