UPDATE: Woman compares assault to Knockout game, JC police need help with investigation
The Johnson City Press ^ | February 12, 2014 | Becky Campbell

Posted on 02/14/2014 9:13:00 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

A Johnson City woman who walked up on the aftermath of a downtown assault early Sunday said the incident was similar to the so-called Knockout game.

Johnson City police released limited details about the assault, but indicated they need the public’s help in finding who is responsible.

Matthew Brookshire, 21, Bristol, Tenn. was found unconscious and bleeding on the sidewalk near the crosswalk on State of Franklin Road between two public parking lots.

A police report indicates there were no eye-witnesses, but only people who walked up on the victim. But according to Breeding’s account, there were witnesses to the attack that reportedly involved several black men who assaulted Brookshire then ran off.

“He was waiting to cross the road and the black males, one of them hit him in the head,” said Katelyn Breeding.

She said it was similar to what’s referred to Knockout, which is reportedly when one or more assailants try to knock out an unsuspecting person with a single sucker punch. Police have not confirmed any information about the assault being a result of Knockout.

“I’m not sure if that’s what happened,” Breeding said. “I didn’t actually see it,” but her information was second-hand from eye-witnesses to the attack, she said.

“One of them walked up and hit him in the head and he hit his head on the crosswalk pole and they were hitting and kicking him,” she said.

Breeding and a friend had been out in downtown Johnson City and were walking to their car parked in the Cherry Street lot near the Battery, she said.

“We walked through the breezeway to public parking. There were five or six black males who ran by us talking and yelling about they had been in a fight. They were yelling, ‘We got him, we got him,’(continued)

But we’ve seen what the reaction is when that happens, specifically in the attempted murder of George Zimmerman. Granted it was not exactly a “knockout” being that the gangster Trayvon Martin failed to knock out George which is why he then moved onto using Georges head as a jackhammer on cement. But because George had the audacity to defend his life from someone who was attempting to kill him, Georges life was all but destroyed. Liberals and the Marxist propaganda machine posing as our fair and impartial media demands that we accept these attempts on our life because failing to do so is racist.

Whites gotta start going out in packs. Most urban blacks are afraid of packs of whites and will only go after single whites.
Also any white who goes out alone have to have their head on a swivel. Be aware of your surroundings

Didn’t know Johnson City had blacks...must be a recent thing

Blacks need to stop the racist Knockout game.
.or there will be more “Cap Dat N-—a” in response

We have seen it, and so what? It's a scandal that Leftists conspire to encourage criminals, but we knew that. The first several Zimmerman instances produce outrage, publicity, and persecution from the state-run media and the state itself; the next several, determined action on the part of the Communists in office; and the next several, fear.

It's like Islamic terrorism. When someone is attacking you, it's a war, whether you admit it and act or not. Might as well get it in gear. Appropriate, just, responsible self-defense and prevention are a wonderful teaching program for everyone—both malefactors and potential targets. The statists will whine and struggle and take rash measures—but they are hopelessly outnumbered. There will be costs. But there are costs already.

I don’t think there are many. But it can happen anywhere.

Trayvon feloniously assaulted Zimmerman and was guilty of attempted murder.

All knock out is attempted murder

It is, people everyday get killed by blows to the head. All it can take is one hit and if the slightest bit of bleeding happens on the brain, that’s it - that person is finished unless they can be rushed to the hospital on time and have their skull opened up. Look at the actress Natasha Richardson. She hit her head skiing, she thought she was alright, she even refused an ambulance. A few hours later she collapsed and by then it was too late, she died. If George Zimmerman did not shoot his attempted murderer Trayvon Martin most likely he would have been killed. People ignore the fact that the attempted murderer Trayvon was shot while on top of Zimmerman slamming his head into the cement.

No no no, according to Rachel Jenteel, it was just a little whoop-azz.

Start forming white militias. Use volunteer decoys to trigger the attacks, then have the concealed backup teams respond appropriately with overwhelming force. That is the only thing thugs understand!

That does NOT mean that groups of whites should be out "Brown Bear" hunting!

No, it won’t. Remember George Zimmerman? What you need to do is sic them on reporters and members of the media.

The Media?
The Media is like the referees in wrestling matches. They don’t see the bad guy smack the good guy with a chair but always see the good guy when he smacks back.

Accept the beatdown. That was the Leftist refrain.

That is the “price” of white “privilege”.

Sins of the father and all that academic rot.

Yeah, but surprisingly , it takes on a different perspective when it is their heads that are getting busted and their bones being broken.

No, open carry will only refine the ‘game’. Concealed carry keeps the thuggish ones from knowing who will terminate them if they fail to knockout a victim, and/or who will terminate them WHEN they knockout a companion or innocent pedestrian. Concealed carry should be the law of the land, without a permit required. After all, it is generally found in the Bill of Rights which the democrips and republicants are terminating step-by-step.
