The victim, who asked to be identified only as Eric, told 11 News that he knew exactly what was happening and that he wasn't going to let himself become another victim of the knockout game.

"The moment I got hit, that split second, I knew what was going on. I've heard the stories, and I wasn't going to let these kids get away," Eric said. "People who play the knockout game are cowards. There was 20 of them and two of us. The moment we chased them, they all went away," Eric said.

Well, I’m glad he caught one of the punks, but he sounds a little naive. He stated he wished there were more activities for the punks instead of beating (white) people. The thing is, there are plenty of other activities for the punks. It’s just that they enjoy assaulting white people the most.

Forget calling the cops—they should have beat the ever-loving sh!t out of the kids and wrapped their bikes around their fricking necks.

That’s the “journalist’s” version of what he said. What he actually said may have contained similar words, with an entirely different meaning. I suspect that if he really said that, they would have shown him saying that, instead of having the talking head paraphrase it for him.

How about forcing them to listen to all 9 Beethoven Symphonies and all of the Strauss Waltzes?
