A bar-hopping Long Island man clobbered from behind by a man in Manhattan may be the latest victim of the coldhearted knockout game.

Kyle Rodgers, 23, had left the Sweet & Vicious bar on Spring St. and was walking to another East Village bar when the assailant rushed up from behind him at 2:25 a.m. Sunday, cops and sources said.

The attacker was caught on video launching a hellacious haymaker that knocked Rodgers out cold, cops said....

No description whatsoever of the "alleged" assailant. Odd.

It doesn't take Smokin’ Joe Frazier to deliver a “hellacious haymaker” when the victim's back is turned.

No descriptions means they were sons Obama might have had.

If these were white on black, within the first inkling that this was a national activity, or even more than a coincidence, the entire government and media would have gone into action, there would have been federal and state task forces, whole plane loads of federal agents and investigators flying into the hot spots, emergency legislation, it would be treated like a deadly plague virus being unleashed, all stops would have been pulled out.

As it is, it is treated like some odd weather phenomenon, mentioning it almost as an oddity, or a quirk of big city living.

I like to think that even at that young age I would not go out bar-hopping at 2:25 a.m. And the guy was alone, from best i can tell. Not smart, not smart at all.

It’s time to tell “African-Anericans” to choose between Africa and America. You think you’re Africans, you get shipped there straightaway. You act like civilized Americans, you stay.

With every ship and aircraft not otherwise occupied doing something else it’d take several years, but I have no problem with it.

He also allegedly said “You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass.” They might want to ponder that, as well.

If these “gamers” start getting capped, the “knockout game” will see a rapid decline in its popularity.

I hear you, gentle lady. In South Carolina, we have 20 of holder’s thugs locked up in state prison, serving 10 to 30 years.

Good the more the merrier. Hopefully a lot of people are waking up.

Not an area I’d expect that to happen even at that hour.

The mindset: You are predator, or you are prey.

Plan accordingly, or, well, there you go.

I think they were Comrade DeBlasio’s sons.

Has anyone asked him what he intends to do about knockout crimes in NY City?

Don’t ask the police, ask the Commissar. He runs or ruins things in the Rotten Apple.

Guiliani is going to look like the GOLDEN AGE of NYC compared to Dinky Dinkins, Bloomturd and Commie’s terms in office.

Coming to a theater near you,soon - “Escape from New York 2014”. Featuring a cast of millions who are fleeing from the Red Menace and his hordes of the great unwashed, EBT Card-wielding parasites and welfare addicts.

Can anyone save them from a fate worse than a Soviet Gulag? Is a sane society doomed to a “1,000 Year Reich of Terror and Subservience”?

Will radical Moslems, with the help of the reds like DeBlasio, seize the new World Trade Center buildings and Center and make them into camel shelters?

Stay tuned. It is only going to get worse, as planned.

It is not a game, it is an attack.

I guess the take away here is to never go anywhere that one cannot be fully armed.

This “knockout game” is pre-planned, first degree murder, and should be punished as such.

Oh! A double ‘hate’ crime!

Black assault on white, plus the victim had just left the Swtheet and Vithious bar.

You're right ansel.

Also these types of attacks have been going on for years. The press, FBI and police weren't able to hide them once the perps started downloading beatings on YouTube for bragging rights.

Look - it’s not his fault - it’s the fault of the thugs who beat him. What’s next? White people can’t leave their homes after dark?

This is wrong - don’t blame the victim.

I was merely pointing out that one should have the good sense to not expose himself to danger. Here, the guy is out drinking at two o’clock in the morning in a downtown area. What would you expect could happen under those circumstances?

And I’m not putting the major blame on the victim, merely pointing out that one shouldn’t set yourself up for an attack and here he plainly did.

Warning people to stay out of black neighborhoods is considered racist by the NAACP. You know that, right?

The NAACP fought a move by a map company some years back that wanted to highlight black 'communities'...to safeguard tourists who might accidentally get off the "wrong" interstate exit.. That said I sadly agree with you. It's dangerous for people of all OTHER races to be in black communities at night.

I also regret having to feel this way - as it feels racist. But it's also the truth.
