Windows 7: Dangerous knockout game !

Dangerous knockout game !

Maybe your are aware of this new thing going around but, now be aware it might be right outside of your door.
These people do not try to rob you or even threaten you. They come from out of nowhere and punch you out with one strike, it is all they want to do. Even though some have stolen things also.

As some of us are Senior Citizens, this becomes extremely dangerous to us.

It is explained further here : Dangerous knockout game | WTNH.com Connecticut

This has started to spread toward my part of town as of late. I don't think even carrying a stun gun will do any good as they seem to run off in a flash.

Sounds like the American version of the UK "happy slapping"

Bloody stupid and dangerous.

I've heard of it earlier. I heard a news about a teen attacked a man on a bus stop while waiting for his daughter's arrival. The assailant got shot twice with a legally concealed pistol by the victim.

My parents are in their mid 70's but most of the time my sisters sons are around them and they are 24/23
So if someone tried this i doubt they would make it very far but thank you for the heads up i will warn everyone so they can give my folks extra protection

I know for damn sure they better knock me out because if his one shot fizzles he better be ready to get hurt

If you research this, you will find articles and videos from around the world on this.
Yes, it has been referred to as a more vicious form of the "happy slapping". I did read about the person who got shot.
There was one video from England I believe which shows someone running up behind a young lady in hers 20's, the idiot gives her a shot in the side of the head and she went right down, never knew what happened. Then the fool turns and runs away.

This has put a lot of people in the hospital and several have been killed.

It's not going to stop till someone really makes an example out of someone

This kind of stuff will not be tolerated for too long especially in certain states in the US where guns are like next of kin to some of these people !

I would like to see them do that to my Cousin in Alabama is carries a 12Guage in his truck and a 9mm on his person get slap happy and you will be dead happy

They have just posted a segment on the Knockout game
on the Today show

I was only able to find a clip on Fox News oh joy

I hate the fact this lady makes it a Racial issue than a issue with the youngster of America
This lady points it out not once but twice

I don't know what knock out games she has been watching but i have seen every color under the sun doing this in the last month or so

Besides the Detouring propaganda BS this lady is spewing here is the Video to stay on topic

Well, to me she has never been right in the head anyway.
You're right and I agree with your observations, all kinds and colors of kids are doing this. This morning I was watching another news station talking about this problem and they are saying now there are more and more copycat attacks going on.

I don't know how this can be stopped.

The one which bothers me the most is where the young lady, walking down the street alone, gets hit in the head from behind.
What is the sense of this ?
