(VIDEO-AT-LINK)

BRENTWOOD - A Suffolk woman says she's the latest victim of the so-called "knockout game," the violent spree of attacks targeting innocent people who are minding their own business.

The woman, a 51-year-old Guatemalan immigrant, asked News 12 Long Island to conceal her identity because she says she's scared that her family will be targeted. She spoke with News 12 through a translator.

The woman says she was smashed in the face and knocked to the ground Friday by four teenagers as she walked home from the supermarket. She says it happened at the corner of MacArthur Avenue and Doolittle Street in Brentwood....

Just imagine if the roles were reversed in the vast majority of these incidents. It'd be all we'd ever hear about, from the White House on down.

I read Brentwood, and thought West LA near where Reagan used to live?

Nah, not so many Amish around there, then I read further and saw it was east coast. Makes sense, considering............

1. It’s only so-called by media people such as yourself. Everyone else calls it assault with depravity, or worse. (Attempted murder.)
2. “Four teenagers.” Is that all you can do for the description? Really? Are you sure? Are you serious?

You are taking the poster to task for what the reporter wrote?

Well, I can’t reply to the article, I can only reply to other replies. It is often understood that replies are intended to respond to the article, not the poster. As a hint, I did mention “media people”. In any case, yes, I am responding to the article, not poster #1. Sorry for any confusion. I detest the way this is a called a “game” and I detest the tap-dancing when it comes to descriptions of suspects. The media is attempting to advance some chosen narratives here, rather than reporting the news. That’s why I don’t want to call them “reporters” nor “journalists.” Just “media people.” Propagandists, perhaps.

See #9. No incoming flak was intended for you. Thanks for posting the article, in fact.

I’m sure her relationship with the state is sound. I trust her fears are exactly as she described.

Are you providing a blanket statement for all the times you neglected to differentiate the thread poster from the author? Because here it was obvious you were speaking to the article.

I lived in Brentwood for around 15 years...got out around 12 years ago. My house was broken into three times while I was there; was vandalized a half-dozen more times.

It’s a harbor for MS-13 and other gangs. Very few White faces left.

One night, I heard gunshots at a party behind my house. Called the cops for two hours and they NEVER showed. Gunshots.

Newsday, the Liberal newspaper on Long Island, turned Brentwood into the shithole that it is many years ago when they ran an article extolling it as a haven for NYC Hispanics. They all flocked to the area after that.

If you’re in hell and you get pissed off at someone, you tell them to go to Brentwood.

” I detest the tap-dancing when it comes to descriptions of suspects.”
Kinda like the “Name that party” game the LSM likes to play.

The woman wants to..”conceal her identity because she says she’s scared that her family will be targeted.”.....

Not by the ones who thumped her but by the gubmint that just may decide to look into her citizenship status. None-the-less, I still feel bad for ANYONE who gets beaten by someone playing such a really stupid game.

“LSM” ... I like to spell it out:
“The Nina Burleigh Press”
My local paper is worse than the Long Island press, it is a cross between the “New York Amsterdam News” and the “Gay City News”. However, both New York city papers are more honest in their “news” reporting than my local Hearst paper which appears to think Patti Hearst had it coming to her..

I’m puzzled why these attacks overwhelmingly occur outside the South. Since victims are alone when blindsided, fear of targeting an armed person doesn’t seem an issue. I wonder if “the Bible Belt” factor with more people, black and white, perhaps knowing right from wrong is the main reason we don’t see these current attacks or past race riots in Birmingham, Nashville, Charlotte, Atlanta, etc.?

How can this happen in such a wonderfully diverse area such as Brentwood Long Island? The area hasn’t been gentrified and destroyed like the Brooklyn that Spike Lee talks about. Why any time of the day or night you can get the oral history of the area from men hanging out drinking out of paper bags rather than doing uncle tom things like working. Leave your car unlocked and the locals will be more than helpful cleaning it out of valuables. The economy is good with all the money transfer to South America stores, check cashing and EBT is accepted at every ethnic store. The schools are subpar but learning takes place in small groups on how to get the most in benefits.

I know I used to live in Central Islip (adjacent to Brentwood)and I could only guess that it is the frustration of these youths that the overwhelming illegal population has been taking their piece of the pie.

Pound on whitey is nothing new. It has been going on since the victim culture started in the 1960’s.

I think it would be obvious from context every time I have responded to the article. Just like this time.
