Way to go, NY Times. All the propaganda that’s fit to print.
Covering for their liberal utopian friends, no doubt, in their suggestion that the Knockout Game is just an urban myth.
The Knockout Game, and its derivatives, is the game where groups of young blacks will pick a single, non-black and try to knock them out with a single punch.
It’s been around for a few years, and has resulted in the death of at least one victim.
It was even in Central Illinois as “Polar Bear Hunting“. (Fortunately, or unfortunately, depending on your point of view, local youth never tried this on a Guns Save Life member.)
It’s often classified as a battery, not as a hate crime.
And the New York Times has the audacity to ask if it’s real, as if they were investigating whether water is really wet.
Nice job, NYT. And they wonder why readership and advertising revenue has fallen so sharply in the last five to ten years.
Police Unsure if Random Attacks Are Rising Threat or Urban Myth
‘Knockout Game’ a Spreading Menace or a Myth
By CARA BUCKLEY
(New York Times) – Fear swept through Borough Park, Brooklyn, as soon as the news got out: A young man was randomly assaulted by strangers early Friday morning, and the attack was possibly part of the so-called Knockout Game.
Four men were arrested, but on Friday night only one was charged and the others were released.
The attack added to a growing log of reports of such crimes in the Northeast and beyond. Young assailants were randomly picking unlucky targets and trying to knock them out with just one punch.
Yet police officials in several cities where such attacks have been reported said that the “game” amounted to little more than an urban myth, and that the attacks in question might be nothing more than the sort of random assaults that have always occurred.
And in New York City, police officials are struggling to determine whether they should advise the public to take precautions against the Knockout Game — or whether in fact it existed.
