FORT MYERS, FL - Lee county Sheriff Mike Scott says the vicious and random attacks known as the 'Knockout game', which is spreading across the nation may be showing up in various forms right here in our area. Two Fort Myers residents were attacked on Monday by a girl who was being video taped by her friends. In one case the teen kick an elderly man as he weeded his front yard. The man fell over but was not seriously injured. The victim says the girl stood there laughing while her friends used their cell phones to tape the incident.

In another case, minutes later and less than a mile away, a woman was attacked in her front yard. The victim in that case also said the attacker was a young female who was being taped by her friends standing nearby. The Sheriff's office has made an arrest in the case.

MSM really making light of this calling it a game.

It is certainly more serious than that, either assault of murder.

There is a new game, the Shoot Dead game. It’s about to become more popular.

The left is panicking. These attacks are being reporting all over the country. The media is never mentioning what is obvious, that the perps are black and the victims are white or asian, but the media is scared to death that the folks are going to notice that. They can’t allow that, and so are saying that this isn’t happening.

The entire facade that they created will crumble if the people notice that Whites are not the evil hateful racist bastards that the media says they are. Maybe, the folks will wake up.

Maybe.

“Are usually only misdemeanors”??? WTF! This is attempted murder! When two people fight, each person is prepared for what might come. But in THESE cases, the victim is totally caught off-guard. This raises it to another level.. Attempted murder.

I’m a little put out by your graphic. There’s no .357 projectile.

Sniff....

All the major networks care about is offending their #1 TV viewers: BLACKS! This is one reason they never criticize 0bama.

There is a big difference between sucker punching an 18 year old as compared to a 65 year old.

I seem to recall that Harry Houdini was killed as a 52 year old when he was punched in the stomach without warning.

“There is a big difference between sucker punching an 18 year old as compared to a 65 year old.”

Many states have enhanced penalties for attacking the elderly. I don’t know if that’s true in Florida.

In South Carolina, these thugs are charged under the state’s anti-lynching law regardless of whom they attack. About 20 of Holder’s thugs have been arrested and are facing up to 30 years in state prison. If a victim dies, they get the death penalty.

These good ol’ boys in SC don’t mess around and don’t consider these attacks a game. Good for them. Every state needs to adopt and pass South Carolina’s law. Executing a few dozen of Holder’s racist Nazis will end the assaults.

I think Houdini was prepared to be punched in the gut. It was a challenge, if I’m not mistaken. I’m not sure I believe this is what killed him anyway.

Sure is comforting to be of a certain age and realize that this is the generation who will be deciding whether or not to fund our elderly medical care or just give us a pill and pull the plug.

For my g-g-g-g-generation, we shall reap in reality what we have sown politically.

What goes around, soon comes around...and now, if I don't die before I get old, I need to figure out how to get out of its way before it gets here.
