SAN ANTONIO A man who was attacked after leaving a bar on the Northwest Side early Friday might have been a victim of the knockout game.
Cody Robinson, 30, said he had just arrived at his car after leaving the España Bar de Tapas, at 5638 W. Hausman Road, around 2 a.m. when an unidentified man punched him in the face and shouted knockout.
The knockout game is a random act of violence in which an assailant attempts to knock out a person with one punch. According to the Associated Press, the game has resulted in serious injuries, even death, nationally.
Robinson's attack didn't stop after the punch. He said at least four men surrounded and repeatedly stomped on him.
San Antonio Police, however, refused to call Robinson a knockout game victim because of what he told officers at the scene.
According to a police report, Robinson said he left the bar while a large fight was going on outside. As he walked through the fight to get to his car, a man questioned him. After a brief exchange, the report said, Robinson told officers approximately eight men jumped him.
Jack Gribbon, owner of España Bar de Tapas, contradicted the police report, saying a large fight near the restaurant never occurred that night.
There was no fight. It was an assault, he said.
Gribbon said Robinson was followed to his car, which was parked in a field near the bar, then beaten by several men.
Robinson said he has no recollection of telling officers anything mentioned in their report, however, he says the attack left him very confused and disoriented.
I just got my brain smashed in, he said. I needed time to recuperate and think about what had just happened. I didn't argue with these guys. It was a random thing.
Officer Roger Zuniga, an SAPD spokesman, said there have been no reported knockout game attacks in San Antonio.
While the initial report did not indicate a knockout game attack, the investigation into the incident is still active.
I'm usually pretty good at diffusing situations, Robinson said. These guys just wanted to hurt me.
Robinson said the attack has him spooked, and even though he has never had problems at España, he will likely never return.
It's a life-changing experience, he said. I have no idea who they are, and they haven't been caught.
Anyone with additional information on the attack can call SAPD at 210-207-7635.
Naturally the morons at the Express News failed to provide basic info relative to this story. Like say for instance...THE RACE OF THE ATTACKERS.
But, there is a full color photo of the victim post-beat down at the link if anyone wants to be freaked out.
At I FReep this, there are 93 comments at the link. Including some by Cody himself, who goes on to say that yes; his attackers were black.
Attackers: Black. Victim: White. Eric Holder: Absent.
Obama, Holder, say nothing. Silence is consent.
Anyone who believes that they are about to become a victim of the knockout “game” should play the “Bullet sending a cowardly thug to Hell game”.
You might only have time to say “Bullet to Hell” before you empty your gun into the chest of someone richly deserving six pallbearers to match the six bullets.
The thug’s next stop will involve Hitler and a pineapple.
He will get to play the pineapple “game” with a former leader.
Allowing the media to call it a game trivializes this racist kind of assault.
Anyone who leaves a bar at 2am in a city, unarmed and unaware of his surroundings, deserves the stomping he gets. Harsh? Maybe. But c’mon people. There’s a war on.
The attackers were not white, Asian, Hispanic or native American. See it’s easy to not profile.
Of course they were black. Did anyone ever doubt that????
Well dang. Didn’t we just read (yesterday?) that the cops said most of these “attacks?” only caused minor injuries? Dumbasses.
Precisely why one should be “carrying” at all times.
I am not recommending or suggesting this but it would be interesting to see what the media would do if folks just went around shooting black youths for the “fun of it”. We know what the police would do. Probably wouldn’t be too popular of a “game”, would it?
In other words, “zimmerman” their lame butts?
Yeah, I picked up on that too.
Don’t wanna blame the victim (OK I do), but come on!!
It’s not even a news story.
This will continue only until the odds of getting shot by your victim become better than even!
“Officer Roger Zuniga, an SAPD spokesman, said there have been no reported knockout game attacks in San Antonio.”
There has been now, so what is Zuniga going to do about it, besides hope it is something else? One more time black thugs exorcise their hate and ignorance. (And yes Richard Sherman, in this case the word thug means exactly the same thing as the N word, as it should). This country has a problem with militant, violent minorities, not racial epithets.

I told the news they were black. I don't know why they didn't report it. Yes there were witnesses. One saved me. Unfortunately most of the witnesses had a glossy entertained look on their faces.
In Texas, it is illegal to carry if you go to a bar or an establishment that earns more than 50% of its revenue via alcohol sales. This is precisely the type of establishment/environment where a firearm would be most useful, acknowledging the natural concern about intoxicated people having a firearm in their possession.
As for the attackers, they are probably hispanic not black. The black population in San Antonio is pretty small, about 10%, most are from military families. Regardless, violent drunks come in all colors and ethnic groups. Political correctness should not prevent the police nor newspapers from providing physical descriptions. The public would be better able to help identify the attackers if such information were provided.
Lesson of the story: Be very careful going to or leaving such an establishment. It is probably best to avoid such places in general.
Sorry, did not see your post.
These article writers need to be confronted and pounded with the fact that these attacks
ARE NOT “RANDOM”.
“I told the news they were black. I don’t know why they didn’t report it.”
Freaking hilarious. I bet by now he knows why they didn’t report it. And why the cops refused to view this as a knockout game.
It just doesn’t fit their PC agenda that blacks are not capable of racism and that black violence is justified.
IIRC, I read here that the msm was saying the game wasn't as violent as many are making it out to be. What's a few hospitalizations and deaths when it comes to protecting the St. Skittles.
