    <p>There is a hot new game being played in cities all over America, and it is very simple. You pick out a defenseless person on the street and you try to knock them out.</p> <p>In most areas, it is known as “the knockout game”.

In many instances, the perpetrators don’t even try to steal anything from the people that they knock out. The goal is just to “have fun” by brutally attacking an innocent victim.</p>

Senate Sergeant-at-Arms Terrance W. Gainer told reporters that Carey "was trying to make a U-turn [toward...
