Mullet-festooned, Make-A-Wish winner charged for brutal ‘knockout game’ attacks
dailycaller ^ | Saturday February 8, 2014

Posted on 02/10/2014 12:56:47 AM PST by chessplayer

A Massachusetts college sophomore is under arrest for a string of vicious, totally random, “knockout game”-style attacks against three fellow students.

Dillon Destefano walked up to three people he didn’t know and sucker-punched them in the face, reports CBS Boston.

Police say the incidents occurred in the wee hours of Sunday, Feb. 2 at or near Endicott College, a small private school in a small New England town about 25 miles north of Boston. The victims were walking home.

Two of Destefano’s alleged victims suffered major injuries. One student, a freshman baseball player, was hospitalized with a broken jaw and needed surgery. His face now contains a titanium plate. His jaw is wired shut. He can only drink through a straw and has lost about 10 pounds.

Another victim has also undergone surgery for a fractured eye socket.

Destefano himself was hurt in the attacks, notes the Boston Herald. He punched his victims so hard that his right hand bloated up.

Since there is now evidence that doing this can kill someone he should be charged with premeditated attempted murder

Poor, baby. Too bad he didn’t get hot lead pumped into his gut.

The penalty for the “knockout game” should be death by battery.

100 hits with a 6 foot long 2x4.

And then the remains are fed to pigs.

Enough of this dystopia insanity crap.

I imagine this is one of the only cases that will make a splash in the media, given the lack of a perp named DuShawn or the like.

I predict national attention for this case, since they finally found a white perp. “See, every group does it” will be the refrain, ignoring the reality of who is the vast majority of perps and victims.

I prefer he be suspended with arms and legs bound and be used as a human(?) punching bag.

Great PR for Make-a-Wish. Sad that a young man with a debilitating illness who has been helped by so many has turned into a ruthless thug.

The only people who ever seem to be caught for the knockout game are white. The “system” will not protect you. Protect yourselves. Arm and avoid. I hate that it must be that way.

My suggestion for those who participate as attackers in the stupid game is to have their forearms amputated. Bet that would stop the game in its tracks if they get caught.

A mullet is a hairstyle enjoyed by a lower socioeconomic demographic which is short in the front and long in the back. For further research watch the movie “Joe Dirt”

There’s this case, and the one the Feds are going after (another white accused).

It isn’t even a mullet. He’s got long hair in front too, it’s just slicked back.

Yeah, maybe New Jersey produced a hockey player ghetto-thug-coppycat who took it off the ice, but we don’t have to answer for the mullet.

So how do you “sucker punch” THREE people?
The way it was written, the three were in one group.

The first one, I can see, then the other two beat the snot out of him.

Well, some national attention would be a good thing.

If the MSM makes this a hot topic, then violent crime & appropriate punishment will also get needed attention. With multiple victims, the Left will not be able to avoid the psychotic brutality of these assaults, thereby illuminating the rampant violence of which we have long complained.

That he is white matters not to me. The race card wont play here unless the victims were black.

After the guilty verdict, he needs a bullet in the back of the head. Send his parents a bill for the bullet.

Journalism isn't quite what it used to be. From the other article linked in a previous post, this is the closest description of events I was able to find...

"The attacks happened within an hour of one another. Two students suffered serious injuries, a third victim had just minor injuries."

Somewhere along the lines, I would expect a writer to use the words "separate attacks". That would be reasonable and spell it out for any reader, right?

I’m figuring that he is a psychopath; but he may be more than just that.

“...most studies agree that patients with Crohn’s disease have a high incidence of psychological disorders, the study concludes. Researchers are still trying to determine if the psychological disorders are a symptom or related to the cause of Crohn’s disease.”

Typically, the frontal lobe of the brain is responsible for judgment. Crohn’s disease has been documented to cause Ischemic (loss of blood flow) stroke. If his judgment center has been significantly damaged, he may be incapable of understanding that what he has done is wrong.

Fortunately, a court appointed psychiatrist should be able to determine this quickly.

First sentence states it was a “string” of attacks. That’s clear enough IMO.
