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.”
