Two middle school students tried to play the “Knockout Game” in Peoria last Friday right outside their school.

They weren’t successful and the victim notified police.  A school resource officer identified the two junior thugs.  No arrests were mentioned in the article on the WHOI website.

Here’s what William Bigelow wrote about the attack at Breitbart:

The old vaudeville question, “will it play in Peoria?” meant that if a show worked in Peoria, Illinois, it would work across the nation. Now, the situation is reversed: the nationwide “Knockout Game”, in which attackers try to knock an unsuspecting victim unconscious with one punch, is playing in Peoria. Daniel Wilson claims he was walking home from a bus stop, and when he reached Folkers Avenue across from Trewyn middle school, he was punched by two attackers.

Wilson said, “When I got around to the corner all of a sudden I felt two blows to the side of my head. I heard one of them say, “Watch me knock this guy out … I never thought in a million years that grade school students would try to knock me out.”

  1. It would have been nice if the man that was attacked would have taken the time to teach them the ” I’m getting a head full of stitches and several new teeth for Christmas ” game

  2. Yea well it’s too bad doesn’t this come from NO meaningful upbringing which starts at home ? No compassion for anyone but their own selves. Maybe a person should carry a ball bat ( Oper carry. ). Of course ,,no permit required …….–“”–
