Police picked up Baldwin last week, and originally connected him to six incidents and charged him with six hate crimes because he targeted Jewish victims, sources told the Daily News.

    It was his turn to get knocked out. The NYPD’s Hate Crimes Task Force busted a Brooklyn man for at least seven “knockout” assaults, cops said Friday. Barry Baldwin, 35, punched out the victims between Nov. 9 and Christmas Eve in Canarsie and Midwood, police said. All of the victims were white women and most were Jewish, a law-enforcement source said. At least two of the attacks occurred on the Sabbath.

    A jury has awarded $125,000 to a St. Louis Park man who alleged in a federal lawsuit that an off-duty Minneapolis police officer challenged him to a fight at a bar, then knocked him out, leaving him with a concussion. Jeremy Axel, an IT salesman, spent the night at Hennepin County Medical Center after his encounter Nov. 4, 2011, with officer Michael Griffin. The jury dismissed two other claims Axel brought against Griffin and another officer in the case. Griffin, a seven-year veteran of the force, was awarded the Medal of Valor last year for being among the first officers...

    A couple’s late night stroll on the Christmas-lit Downtown Mall turned to terror in the early morning hours of Friday, December 20, when they were brutally assaulted by three men in what appears to have been a random act of violence. Even though one of the victims, Jeanne Doucette, managed to take photos that appear to show the assailants as they kicked and pummeled her boyfriend Marc Adams to unconsciousness, Charlottesville Police still do not have any suspects. Doucette says there were other witnesses to the crime, which allegedly occurred just outside the Wells Fargo building at around 1am as...

    The white Texas man facing federal hate crime charges for allegedly slugging a 79-year-old black man in a “knockout game” assault was denied bail Friday for an attack prosecutors say was racially motivated. During a hearing in U.S. District Court in Houston, U.S. Magistrate Judge Frances Stacy said suspect Conrad Barrett, 27, is a flight risk and danger to the community, according to Barrett’s lawyer, George Parnham. **SNIP** “Hate crimes tear at the fabric of entire communities,” said Acting Assistant U.S. Attorney General Jocelyn Samuels in a statement announcing Barrett’s charges Thursday.

    Hundreds of teenagers stormed and trashed a Brooklyn mall in a wild flash mob that forced the shopping center to close its doors during day-after Christmas sales, sources said on Friday. More than 400 crazed teens grabbed and smashed jars of candy, stole cheap items such as baby balloons and beat up security guards at Kings Plaza Shopping Center in Mill Basin between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m., merchants said. A violent game of “Knockout” also broke out on the upper level of the mall — and one teen may have been carrying a gun, sources said.

    WORDS WITH FIENDS December 11, 2013 Whenever liberals are in a tight spot, they adopt the scorched-earth policy of argumentation. With no answer, they start demanding that you define words: What do you mean "liberal"? What do you mean "democracy"? What do you mean "patriotism"? They retreat from argument, burning the English language as they go. Accustomed to playing the role of Soviet commissar censoring the news when it comes to black violence, the Non-Fox Media are in a panic now that the alternative media can post videos of young black males punching out random strangers. As a result, liberals...

    A story going around the net is of Gladis Bennett, 93 yr old grandmother, who supposedly shot and killed one of a group of attackers who were "playing" the knockout game. The story caught my interest for obvious reasons, and because the blog referenced in the link above showed a picture of an older woman holding a large handgun, which I recognized as a large hand air gun, a   Webley Tempest or  Mark II air pistol.    This prodded me to investigate further, to determine if the story were real or just another Internet hoax/satire. It is not as if...

    Left bleeding on the floor of Las Vegas shopping mall: 'You hit a GIRL, dude?' Not going to plan The guy in the white shirt can be heard saying to an accomplice 'let's go'- yet only seconds later his buddy goes 'uh-oh' as the woman in the striped sweater pounds the attacker to smithereens!  Another male -apparently her partner- joins in for a second, but really isn't needed... rather, he has to pull the lady off of the assailant before she killed him...
