Knockout Game: Teens In Florida Kick 72-Year-Old Man To The Ground While He Was Picking Weeds
American Live Wire ^ | November 29, 2013 | Carl Jackers

Posted on 11/30/2013 2:21:42 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

A dangerous game known as the “Knockout game“, has now made it’s way down to Fort Meyers, Florida. Where a 15-year-old girl named Traveshia Blanks, has attacked more than just one eldery person.

Traveshia Blanks, of Fort Myers, has been charged with two counts of battery on a person 65 years of age or older. Another victim, a 72-year-old man told the news station he was weeding his garden Tuesday when he was kicked from behind. The victim fell to the ground and said he saw a woman walking away laughing, joining a group of people.

According to NBC-2, Harry Hurvitz, 89, told deputies that someone rang his doorbell, and he looked and saw several well-dressed teens standing outside his door and one of them appeared to be holding a cell phone or camera.

When he opened the door, one of the juveniles suddenly and without provocation slapped him in the face.

“I stepped out to see what she was pointing to and there was another girl standing here and wammmmmm,” explained Hurvitz.

Harry said he does not want to press charges but believes the girls need help. Pointing out that some elderly people only answer the door with a loaded weapon. Pointing out that it could be a deadly game of knockout if teens continue to play this game against the elderly.

Any time the news does not report the race of the perpetrators, you can be assured they are black.

If the perp is white, the race is normally given outright.

Two things. This ‘girl’ IS black per the court video. She got 21 days in a juvenile detention center.

Secondly, the 82 year old that was slapped in the face didn't want her to go to jail but to get ‘treatment’. He further said he's glad it was him because there are lots of old ladies there that have guns and revolvers and they don't come to the door any time without being armed. Awwww, he didn't want the little child hurt....precious. He's a fricking Democrat.

It should have been one of them little old ladies that came to the door, IMO.

Who did you think moves to Florida to retire, Texans and Arizonans? Chances are he’s a New Yorker, Bostonian or Chicagoan, something like that.

Imagine the howls and shrieks if a couple of white kids smacked some black Granny on her way to church. We would have an immediate national discussion and endless editorials and documentaries about Evil Racist White People.....

Actually, I saw an interview with a female victim of this “game” who said she thought the solution was more youth programs.

Yeah...right... youth programs have worked so well in the past.

If the American people read these stories—and that’s a big “if”—they should be clued in immediately by the first name of the perpetrators. It’s a dead giveaway.

He had a foreign accent....been here all these years apparently and still couldn’t get rid of the home country accent, I guess.

In the "For What It's Worth" department I once had an expert in foreign languages explain to me why a person who learns a foreign language after puberty has a very difficult--if not impossible--problem with acquiring the native accent of the language he has learned. He told me that it all has to do with the "learned muscles" (not his term, mine...he had a term but I have forgotten it) within the mouth. Once this has imprinted itself on the person as he learned his native language, it is extremely difficult to unlearn it in order to learn the different pronunciations, intonations and whatall of a new language.

Harry said he does not want to press charges but believes the girls need help. Pointing out that some elderly people only answer the door with a loaded weapon. Pointing out that it could be a deadly game of knockout if teens continue to play this game against the elderly.

He needs to press charges if he's concerned that someone else may shoot in self-defense. Hell, he needs to press charges anyway - how does he think she will be forced to consider the "help" he believes she needs?

I agree, but with work, you can unlearn it. It takes determination and forced practice, though.

NY is back to the way it was in the 70’s I was a kid but I will never forget how nervous I was riding the subway. My mother would rest her eyes can you imagine closing your eyes on the subway in the 70’s.

The error I see in this story is that he was “picking weeds,” You don’t “pick” weeds as that would imply one is harvesting them for food. You “pull” weeds as in “I was weeding my garden” as a method of getting rid of the weeds.

Unless he was harvesting weed to dry and use medicinally later...

The was a funny incident on the show The Wire. They try to do a hit on Sunday and shoot the Church Ladie’s Crown(hat)

Drug dealers everywhere across the gang spectrum are incensed that they violated the Sunday Truce ( you dont kill a gangster on Sunday) and furthermore dared to shoot the Grandmas hat.
