Has Knockout Game hit Ivy League?
Legal Insurrection ^ | November 21, 2013 | Professor William A. Jacobson

Posted on 11/21/2013 9:55:33 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Police investigating whether late night sucker punch on edge of Cornell campus was part of “knockout game.”

The so-called knockout game is receiving a lot of media attention.

It’s hard to know if it is escalating in frequency, or just getting more media coverage:

(VIDEO-AT-LINK)

An incident on November 16, 2013 at the edge of the Cornell University campus in Ithaca, NY, appears to fit this pattern of an unprovoked, seemingly random sucker punch to the face of a stranger without any apparent robbery or other motive (emphasis added):

November 18, 2013 Assault reported on University Ave, near Lake St, 11/16/13 The Ithaca Police Department is investigating a reported assault that occurred on

University Ave., near Lake Street, around 3:11 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 16, 2013.

According to the male victim, he and a friend were walking on University Ave., near Lake Street, when they were approached by two males. The victim reports that the two males did not say anything, but one of the males punched the victim in the face with a closed fist causing pain and physical injury. The victim describes the perpetrators as a tall black male wearing dark clothing and a shorter Hispanic male also wearing dark clothing. The perpetrators then fled the area in a southerly direction on University Ave. The extent of the injury to the victim was not immediately apparent at the time of the incident and has been upgraded to an Assault.

A spokesman for the Ithaca Police Department indicated that the investigation has developed “no information to confirm or deny” whether the incident was part of a knockout game, and that they still were ”trying to develop” information as to motive. The police are using social media and confidential informants to determine motive, but have no evidence one way or the other so far.

As far as the officer was aware, there have been no prior knockout game incidents in Ithaca.

The punks may have sort of jumped the shark on this as they are attacking white liberals.

On second thought, most liberals are too stupid to put the concept that this is a result of their politics together with the cause of the attack.

I think the Knockout Games are just starting and will get much worse. Some of those animals are going to get shot and then we’ll have Travon Martin x hundreds, at least.

Thus far, these knock-out games haven’t moved South.
IIRC, I think there’s only been one, and that was in GA.

Actually it’s been going on for quite a while. It has been ramping up and now is starting to get some media attention.

I didn’t realize that. Thanks.

I bet they won’t be pulling that crap very much in areas where people Conceal Carry. Some of these animals are going to get popped.

Yep, it’s sure hard to figure out.

Now if it was only a Confederate Flag, the issue would be so clear, so easy to understand, to vital to get to the bottom of.

The Knock-Out Game, now that’s very complex. It can’t be racism. Well it can’t...

The Left and the nation’s media controlled by it have said so.

That’s when the race of these nutty, carefree, game-playing teens will suddenly be included in the media reports.

When you’re dealing with people who don’t give a crap about their lives, they’re certainly not going to give a crap about yours.

I live in SW part of PA which is a shall issue state. Probably a fairly high concentration of concealed carry.

There have been a number of really bad cases around here and this isn't big city. I just posted a story of a White woman that was attacked in her garage in Pittsburgh.

A Pittsburgh teacher was attacked in broad daylight with numerous witnesses, it made national news and youtube.

Last year a White college student was beaten to death by 6 in Washington, Pa

Last year a White college student at Pitt was shot in the back me killed.

Last year, in the state college town about 3 miles away, a White student was sucker punched and then kicked and stomped in the head in full view of a pizza joint. Witnesses said they were going to F*** up the first Whitey they saw.

Truth is they just don't care.

Word is out from the regime.

It's payback time.

Whitney's keepin' you down.

Whitney's got your stuff.

Do what you want and we'll look the other way.

That’s why it would be as easy to take them out as taking out a rattle snake.

You are exactly right. The Regime wants chaos. And they’ll push for gun control when the animals start getting taken out.

Yes and you're right that this won't stop until people start defending themselves.

Always be armed, can't stress enough a good 300+ lumen flashlight and SITUATIONAL AWARENESS.

Don't be afraid to be rude. Pretend that you're deaf. Don't be afraid to cross the street. If they come after you they are hunting you. Don't walk through a pack of them on the sidewalk. Do not let them approach you asking for the time, a cigarette, money, etc. do not turn your back on them. Do not let them flank you.

Good points.

Fortunately, there are none of the Knockout Game types in my neck of the woods.

Around here some people open carry.

This year I participated in an Independence Day parade in Custer County, Colo. and there were between 475 and 500 of us carrying. Four county sheriffs led the parade.

That's great! Now you have to work on that secession thingy.

We're in the same boat here. I live about 40 miles south of Pittsburgh near the WV line. Mossy Oak is the most popular designer fashion.

The state is controlled by a Philadelphia which is 300 miles away and has absolutely nothing in common with the rest of the state. soetoro only won 8 counties out of 40 some through gubmint unions and voter fraud.

If we could only cede Philly to Chris Christy...

Spread it far & wide; their war parties have to leave the reservation because everyone there knows what they are and have adjusted their behavior accordingly, and now people in The Real World better do the same.

Big Media has made people believe this “game” is just a recent phenomenon. Actually, the staggering black violent crime wave has been going on for more than half a century. The knockout “game” is just a variation of the terrorist violence inflicted on whites by black males for decades. The media wants people to believe that somehow innocent black youths, who normally would be practicing the piano for their Juilliard auditions, just decided to attack random people for fun. Of course, most average people know the score. It’s the libs who refuse to see the elephant in the room.

New game, becoming popular among white people: The double-tap game. Can be played by one person, suitably armed (dangerous), or by a team of two armed persons (safer).

Story on the news the other day, Yale police have issued a warning to the campus community about a rise in “assaults”, from the wording sounds like this kind of thing.

Not to worry. These are Holder’s people, seeking justice for Trayvon. And besides, opposition to ObamaCare™ is racist.

I worked with a gay guy who lived in Boston. He told me that he was walking through downtown Boston one day, when three, hooded, black youts approached him from the opposite direction.

He thought about crossing the street, but caught himself, thinking that running away would be racist.

You can guess the rest. He got mugged.

Nice. In my area your arsenal is fairly limited, but you can still put something together.

“He thought about crossing the street, but caught himself, thinking that running away would be racist. You can guess the rest. He got mugged.”

That’s funny; lesson learned. I worked with a black guy who had a T-shirt that said, “I don’t want your purse, white lady”. I asked him what that was about, and he said it was in response to hearing automatic car locks engage when he walked past white people in their cars.

Sad, but funny at the same time; those ladies aren’t fools...

Nothing good ever happens after midnight. As someone pointed out in the Michigan incident, conceal carry puts a stop to this nonsense.

Playing the "game" properly requires the proper equipment. One shot to the torso should do sufficient damage to ensure that all of society wins. Empty your clip.

“...my very liberal in laws may change their views. Maybe not...”

I also have liberal in laws whose retirement condo is in Newtown, Connecticut. I get so annoyed when they act sooo progressive and liberal and yet go to mass every day. They only watch MSM and won’t change. Sheeple types.

I am sure they advocate gun control even though those kids in their own town were sitting ducks because of it. Stupid reasoning (or lack).

The last time they visited (we live two and half hours from them) I was saying how pleased I am that we have an SRO (police_ officer) stationed at our school at all times and the police car is parked prominently out front. We live a small outlying school district - not a big city where violence is expected. I said without someone armed in the school those students are sitting ducks (including our daughter, their grandaughter). They said nothing.

The best way to stop these games is if YOU are a witness to such a knockout, you should immediately pull your firearm and shoot the perp and maybe a few of his friends DEAD, DEAD, DEAD.

The time has come when people need to protect each other,even if you don’t know the victim.

I teach at a community college near Yale and we just got an e-mail from campus security warning us about the knock out game in New Haven

Friend of friend had his arm broken in multiple places when he got knocked down while jogging in a New Haven city park.
