Police Investigate 2nd Elderly Assault Claim In 2 Weeks (Knockout Game)
KTVT-TV ^ | January 17, 2014 | Andrea Lucia

Posted on 01/18/2014 8:12:33 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

DALLAS-It was nearly two weeks ago when an elderly man was beaten to the ground outside a Dallas restaurant. Now police in the city are investigating a similar incident.

The attack happened along Central Expressway near Knox-Henderson.

The manager of a Denny’s restaurant says he found 74-year-old Charles Pace lying face down, motionless and bleeding in the parking lot. It was two o’clock Friday morning.

The woman said it was only when police arrived that Pace started to move, but he seemed confused.

The manager thought the elderly man might have had too much to drink and fell down. Investigators say Pace told them he was headed to the restaurant when he was struck on the back of the head in an unprovoked attack by three men.

A police report reads,”[Responding officers] believe that [Pace] was the victim of the latest ‘knockout game.’”(continued)

My advice to 70 year old guys and gals is invest in a blackjack and if you see 3 or more Amish laughing and coming at you, pick out the biggest one and use the blackjack. Course we would have to come up with a new name to reflect the changed rules. Any ideas?

Best comment on article:

White people are racist because they only choose blacks as random attackers.

How much hate do you have to have in your heart to knock out an elderly person just because you can. Sick.

A blackjack is everywhere a prohibited weapon. And the thugs will claim they were just going up to the senior to ask for the time. Result? Senior gets arrested. Then senior gets sued.

My advice to seniors:

1. If you can avoid it, don't go roaming around after dark.
2. If you can avoid it, stay away from any area near a bus line.
3. If you must violate rules 1 and 2, carry police grade pepper spray. Carry it in your hand, not in your pocket or purse.

Yep, it stinks that such advice has to be even considered.

I would also add, if you see any young black men in the area, don’t bother to try and decide if they are up to something.

Get away as quick as possible.

First, we gotta identify the assalants. Lets just call them N....r’s Anonomous. Then we 70 plus year olds do the ‘blackjack knockout N....r down’ game. Game over!

So sue me Eric, they are your people! F’m!

“How much hate do you have to have in your heart to knock out an elderly person just because you can.”

A common result of children born with alcohol fetal syndrome is that they have no conscience. For these kids, it isn’t even personal—they have no conscience.

The knock out game is predominantly played by blacks against whites. Maybe it should be called the Black Out Game....

Maybe so, but even without a conscience there had to be a motivating factor. I seriously doubt they knock out everyone they run into.

You're right, I should have added that to the list.

Many years ago, Oprah Winfrey did a show on personal safety for kids. One thing she said has always stuck with me: If something doesn't feel right, get away from there. Your safety comes before their hurt feelings.

Your safety comes before their hurt feelings. That was good advice.

A conscience implies a soul, therefore, they have no souls, ergo, it’s the Zombie Apocalypse.

My thought is that this is terrible advice. I am 68 and still pretty spry, but I could never inflict serious damage on a man less than 50, even with a blackjack. No strength left, too slow, just plain too old.

My ideas:

1. Do not live where there are large numbers of young knock-out game players.

2. Do not live where you can not carry a firearm.

3. Do not rely on any weapon which requires even modest physical strength. You will lose and the weapon will be turned against you.

Many years ago I was walking down a stairwell at work. At the bottom of the stairwell, a few floors below me, was a black lady who I liked and got along well with. She was talking to some other blacks.

She was telling her friends that all whites were devils. I was shocked, and it made me sick to my stomach. It bothers me to this day.

Pretty sad that people feel that way, isn’t it?

Obama has stoked racism in this country. It is no coincidence that crimes like this are popping up.

They do have that motivating factor. It's the ratings and "respect" points among other thugs - however ridiculous that may sound to sane people. Their "culture" is not connected to ours. Peaceful coexistence is not likely; it's predator vs. prey, wolves and the sheep.

I seriously doubt they knock out everyone they run into.

No, uniformed police officers and Chuck Norris are fairly safe. The gangs only attack those who cannot strike back.

Exactly right.

These are predators, and they know the "rules". People that play this "game" are criminals who know the street. They also know their victims are mostly timid whites who will go to every length not to "offend" and will ignore all the warning signs of approaching danger because of the "color" angle.

The best thing one can do is keep alert and stay away from them. It is becoming increasingly obvious "black" is now a warning sign. Too bad. It just is in today's society.

A predator will make every excuse to aggressively and stealthily move in close for the kill. When they attack, it is like lightning, without warning.

My policy is, no half measures any more. I stay away from young blacks in the street and I could care less if I "insult" them. There is no earned trust. They are all potentially dangerous.

If they insist on moving into your space, then you will have to determine if deadly force (or the threat of it) is required. If you have tried to avoid the situation and they keep coming at you, then if you can't flee you have to make the decision to use force if it is necessary and then live with the ugly consequences, lawyers, and all the ugly rest of it.

Every situation is different. But remember these are predators, in search of prey and you might be the prey. This is not a "game" and should be not treated as such.

This sort of thing stops when enough offenders get lit up and aired out. For some reason, being full of .40 caliber holes impedes one’s ability to punch an innocent bystander.

Well said. This is not to be taken lightly, and we have no protection from this government-quite the reverse. I am doing what I have to do, and advising my family and friends to do the same, and too bad if someone gets offended. Their hurt feelings against my life and safety and that of my loved ones-no contest.

You sir, are obviously a racist, for racial profiling. (smile). I agree with you. Get away from them.

“Officials with the department would say that the crime is very similar to the attack two weeks ago on Luis Rocha. The 69-year-old was assaulted in the parking lot of a Campisi’s restaurant, just blocks from the Denny’s.”

The elderly victim of the Campisis restaurant attack:

Just remember, racially motivated “knock out” attacks against whites are a “urban myth” and according to Eric “my people” Holder’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee in June of 2009, blacks can never commit a racially motivated hate crime against whites.

They are not one of us. These thugs don't qualify as human, in my book.

Or.....keep yourself armed, and if you need to be out and about, be very aware of your surroundings. If someone, or a group, approaches, move to leave a wide berth. if they alter course to approach, ask them to please stay away. If they keep closing the gap, show the weapon (front view) and tell them again to stay away. If that doesn't work, take out the apparent leader.

Of course, you can argue that if blackjacks are illegal, there is something even worse about a gun and maybe they should take your advice and just cower behind their locked doors or try to season the perps with pepper spray if they have the audacity to leave their homes.

Best advice....and would work for gun control areas...elderly folks should invest in a good strong cane...wood or aluminum. Whether you need the cane for walking or not. Also, get one where you can get a wrist band and secure around your wrist so it cannot be taken from you so easily.

A cane is good enough weapon to thwart off an attacker. Also, a cane itself will deter some Knockout folks from even trying. Additionally, it looks bad for the perp to assault someone who appears disabled....even for a black perp on a white victim. No weapon is 100% effective, but a cane will deter or limit assault

Although I am near AMAC membership age, I am considering getting a good cane. My job prevents me from carrying firearms on my person and property, so I need something that I can have that will defend me without causing too much issue. I will not be Lynched by the Black Ku Klux Klan without fighting, that is for sure.

In the Knockout “game”, the tactic is to sneak up on the victim. They don’t signal their intentions so the victim doesn’t have time to prepare to defend themselves. That’s why my modus operandi is to simply avoid all who fall into the usual suspect group-ie, I racially profile.

I agree with you. If a wolf kills another living being, it has a motivation for doing it. But it doesn’t have a human conscience to tell it that it shouldn’t.
