Police Unsure if Random Attacks
Are Rising Threat or Urban Myth

New York Times, by Cara Buckley

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 11/23/2013 6:43:57 AM

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

Cities do not want to accept the fact they are not controlling or impacting crime. Apparently the cities think if they close their eyes to this violence, do not recognize the street gangs and do not punish hate crimes, somehow the problems will disappear.

It is not an "urban myth". It may not be very common, but their are entirely too many videos of it for it to be an urban myth. It actually happens. Now, perhaps it is rather rare, but it still happens and considering how strenuously the various police departments downplayed "flash mobs" I am not going to take their word for it.

Do not think for a moment that this is not a desired spin-off the Obamboozler´s fundamental transformation of the United States. Let the air out of the financial tires through wild, reckless spending, make the economy fail through the introduction of the new Communism of unnecessary, over-bearing, back-breaking regulation, let chaos ensue and, of course, lie about it.

It has been happening for several years, but is only now receiving any mainstream attention. It is young, feral blacks sucker punching unsuspecting whites with vicious punches to the back of the head. Sometimes they use tasers first and then just mercilessly stomp and kick the unfortunate caucasian. And they record the assault and laugh like savage hyenas throughout.
The media suppresses news of these frequent attacks, but if they do happen to cover the story, they merely identify the attackers as "youths" and completely ignore reporting the danger associated with encountering violent black racists.
Keep your eyes wide open and your head on a swivel. Carry a concealed firearm and learn how to safely use it. You are on your own. The police cannot protect you from this type of moronic thuggery.
Wise up. The War on Whitey has been declared.

Just read the Mark Steyn essay from yesterday. He quotes Walter Williams and C. S. Lewis who both say that morality & courtesy & common decency are not the law but rather the foundation of the law. No cop can enforce these - they must be ingrained in the citizens from childhood. When you have a whole 4 or 5 generations of people who have been turned into infants as wards of the state and tell these people that they are constantly oppressed by the white man this is what you get. No restraint, no self-discipline, no ambition to work & create order and beauty has been inculcated into them. Now that they think since they have a president who has the same skin color as they do they can do what they want. And Obama has never addressed the social ills & spiritual needs of the masses on welfare or the gang culture that black & white teens emulate.

If you are white and walk in or near urban areas this "urban myth" may just slap you upside the head. I don´t go anywhere near any urban areas or where there are large gatherings of blacks. Just too dangerous any more. Blacks believe all these knock outs are just a game and part of reparations. The most disturbing part of these videos are laughter and glee that they blacks have when some white man or woman is knocked out and hits the concrete face first. Welcome to obama´s hood and his kind.

It´s Obama´s Mad Max world! He has not commented on these assaults. Wonder why? Could it be because they are racially motivated and he just doesn´t want to address it. Where are the Justice Brothers? We haven´t heard a peep from them. One thing Obama could have done during his reign of terror is to address the ills of the black community. He could make a real difference in the way blacks live their lives.

Two key qualifiers: "yet to see evidence of an ORGANIZED game spreading among teenagers ONLINE.

Who cares if it is "orgaized." When I was a kid we had "organized" baseball leagues, yes, but most were just pickup games.

We all knew the rules, had the equipment, and knew who else liked to play. Have the time? Meet at the field and ´pick up´ a game.

That is likely what is happening here. No coaches or umpires required.

Urban Myth? Do NOT believe any lying democrat city police spokesmen. They would rather keep stories of whites/asians being stomped and killed quiet than try to explain their city´s well-deserved criminal reputation.

It started with black St. Louis gangs at least 2 years ago. Resulted in death from the very start.

Our entire system of government requires people to insist that politicians correct abuses such as this. That can only happen if the people are informed honestly about what is going on. It’s the media’s job to make sure that they are informed. Today, the media consists largely of television, and television is a propaganda tool of the Democrats. Television is using the nation’s airwaves to destroy the nation’s freedoms and must be stopped.

A recent random poll asked blacks what the racial makeup of America was. Most guessed 50% black and 50% white. (Not really good at math).
They are actually 12% of the population.
They have a thug President to look up to or down on, whatever. They think he is King and they believe they have to answer to no one.
The actual name of their "game" is "Polar Bear Hunting". Wonder why?

This type of stuff was not unusual in any community that was at least 50% black. I got jumped more than once. So did my parents and brother. You learned to avoid it. It wasn´t just black either. You had to basically watch out for the thug element of society. You could spot them. Avoid lonely streets and alleys. Avoid the gangs. Walk in groups. Watch your back!!! Wear an oversized jacket and leave them wondering if you are armed. Quite a few people were.

Are attacks expanding? Probably. Thanks to the Obama gang for encouraging a lawless society. And Obama has the nerve to call it justice.

Just as they were mystified about the ideological motivation for ”Allahu Akbar” shouting Maj. Hasan’s Jihadi terror attack at Ft. Hood, and also professes itself mystified as to why a young Muslim would make a car bomb and park it in Times Square, the MSM—exemplified by the NYTimes—does not want to know, does not actually mention the stark and obvious racial nature of these unprovoked, sometimes lethal attacks by packs of black “youts” against single, vulnerable whites, and tries to dismiss any recognition of what is happening as giving credence to an ”urban myth” and as “racism.”

Just from the reporting on these “knockout game” attacks that has somehow slipped past the MSM’s self-imposed liberal censorship, is looks like these attacks have been happening for several years, are popping up all over the country, and are likely much more prevalent than the MSM wants to admit.

In an editorial a few days ago (see http://www.creators.com/opinion/thomas-sowell/a-very-dangerous-game.html) Thomas Sowell discussed these attacks, and saw them as the first skirmishes in what might, absent immediate and strong efforts by authorities to stop them, develop into a race war.

Do I think that the sum total of the actions, statements, and attitudes of Obama & Co. in regard to race have led to these kinds of attacks? Let’s just say that division, chaos, and violence have always been the revolutionary’s friend.

If the police don´t soon find a solution to control these AA animals we will soon see a lot of illegal concealed carry incidents in the gun-free cities. Being arrested is preferable to getting your head beat in. Besides, what are the courts going to do, take away your right to carry a firearm?

In Syracuse NY, this year, two men have died after being targeted for this knockout game.
And the (black) chief of police in Syracuse said the police are investigating 5-7 more cases.
The 51 year old part native American man was outside a convenience store at 6 AM, and one young black lad KO´d him, went inside the store, celebrated in front of the surveillance camera, went back outside, kicked the man to death, while 3 of his friends watched.
The DA refused to prosecute the lad for murder, saying that the lad intended to knock out the man, but did not intend to murder him. Charged with manslaughter.
In the other case, two lads pled to manslaughter, 18 months in a juvenile facility, each. The DA is an idiot.
Finally, I posted here, from the beginning, that Saint Trayvon was playing the knockout game, with his cell phone on, to impress the illiterate Haitian girl who he was talking with. And she lied.

Urban myth? Same ´game´ (aka brutal, vicious attack), but evolving technique.

Anyone remember Reginald Denny being dragged from his semi and then being stomped and beaten by a group of prancing, laughing, dancing ´youths´? Mr. Denny suffered 90+ skull fractures.

In 1992, what were once described by the media as acts of ´justified retaliation´, are now, more and more, described as what they really are - wanton mayhem and blood thirst committed by thrill-seeking ´youths´, who live empty, wasted lives of boredom. Some might call the present, more-honest descriptions, progress.

No, these acts are not an ´urban myth´, but neither are they a newly ´rising threat´. The threat is not ´rising´ but is long-standing and real and has been a decades-long established fact of life in all of our teeming cities.

The scenario go forward will be like the movie Death Wish. Someone will arm themselves like Charles Bronson and wade into an area where they would expect to be "knocked out." Just before the punch is thrown, the gun will come out and the "poor" black kid(s) will be shot dead. And then the MSM will scream "vigilante."

Mark my words. This will happen.

#37 a situation like that was reported recently when a man who was carrying legally, saw 3 blacks looking at him and whispering. As I remember the article, they came his way and one of them stuck something in his back that felt like a gun. It was a taser that failed to work and the teen was shot for his trouble.

In this troubled country right now, with its lack of moral and honest leadership, anyone who thinks you are safe out on the streets, or even in your own home, are living in a cocoon. Better to be prepared that sorry.

DEATH WISH the non stop innovative anti establishment HERO, Charles Bronson, who paved the way for Chuck Norris, Sly Stallone Bruce Willis, Steven Seagall, Jason Statham, even Bruce Lee.

The knockout "destroyers" are, sadly, a perfect reflection of the times, and this rule: THE MISERABLE CRIME IN THE SUITES WILL ALWAYS BE ACCURATELY REFLECTED BY THE CRIME IN THE STREETS.
This long time in the making black gang crime has arrived big time at the peak of all government schemed
chaos. It is again, sadly, a perfect reflection of academic, TV media, Hollywood and Washington´s overwhelming , immoral corruption. For four decades, no father, no teacher, only a welfare momma, to teach right and wrong. Then, along comes racist Sharpton, Jackson,
Communist agitators Schumer, Reid, Feinstein, Pelley,
And chaos is the resulting format for these brainwashed
kids, helped by Chief Fomenter, Obama. One more rant.

This happens only in urban, Democrat controlled, gun free jungles. Police have to consult a manual to even know how to respond.

I´m sorry, we are in "A Clockwork Orange". The police are incapable of handling flash violence.

We are all descendents of, or have been, warriors. We also know how the rule of "a tooth for a tooth". The answer is 3-7-77 (Google it). Until locals stand up nothing will change.

The police know exactly what this is. All of these incidents have involved black on white. These are racist hate crimes but they can´t open that Pandora´s box because the Obama/Holder lawless, racist Justice Department won´t recognize it. Easier to just deny it´s existence. Kill a few of them and watch it turn into another George Zimmerman trial.

If these urban city police personnel continue to call this an "urban myth" they very well see the rise of organizations that will be similar to the KKK. Not the actual KKK, but groups that will ban together and create a "solution" to the black gangs that are involved in this. That´s when all hell will break loose.

This "knockout game" happened to a young man in a college town in upstate NY about 10 years ago. Group of thugs approached, hit him hard, he went down, they kicked him in the face a couple times (his teeth were permanently amaged), then strode off laughing.

Anyone who lived in NYC in the 70s-80s-early 90s know this drill. Many were victims. I guess Cara didn´t live there then. She should interview a couple of old-timers (people over 40).

If it´s black attacking white it has to be an urban myth. If only ONE white person did the same thing it would be an overnight epidemic.

The Commonwealth of Virginia, where I live, has "shall issue" concealed carry thanks to Republican governor George Allen. So far, here in central Virginia, I have not read a single story about "knockout." But (que ominous music) our new governor is bought and paid for by Mikey Bloomberg. So all the advances we´ve made will probably be set back.

This must be a new de Blasio policy--making it mandatory that the cops claim all crimes are urban myths. It was probably generated from his pow-wow with hardened criminals. Those that can flee NYC should do so before it´s too late.

WASHINGTON — The National Archives on Friday was preparing to release its largest batch yet of previously withheld documents from the Clinton administration, with topics to include the conflicts in Somalia and Rwanda, Middle East peace negotiations, the Oklahoma City bombing and public figures like Richard M. Nixon, Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey.The bundle that is likely to receive the most attention, though, is one that covers Hillary

Hold on there, cowboy!Texas Monthly magazine sued the New York Times on Friday for poaching its editor. Jake Silverstein, who was hired away from the Emmis Communications title last month to become the new editor of the New York Times Magazine, was under contract at the regional monthly until the Times, “without legal justification or excuse,” caused him to breach that deal, the lawsuit claims. The six-page Texas state court action alleges that Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson started recruiting Silverstein in December 2012 — a full year before then-magazine editor Hugo Lindgren was ousted.

New York - President Barack Obama is coming to New York City Friday to address the Rev. Al Sharpton‘s National Action Network.The visit comes days after revelations surfaced that Sharpton worked with the FBI. The topic also came up in a 2011 ’60 Minutes’ interview with Lesley Stahl weeks before the debut of “Politics Nation.”In outtakes posted from that interview, Stahl asked Sharpton if he was an FBI informant. The exchange got testy at times when Stahl continued to question Rev. Al about his “informant” role.Stahl: When you were in your 20s, you were an informant for the FBI.Sharpton: Sharpton: No, well it’s according to

First came the “polar vortex” — now it’s the “pollen vortex.”Forced to lie dormant by the long, brutal winter, trees are now set to start reproducing like crazy — and create a massive amount of pollen that could wallop your sinuses this weekend. Pollen count in the Northeast will soar to “high levels” Saturday and Sunday, when warm temperatures will prompt plants to create the sniffle-inducing substance, reports Pollen.com, which offers allergy “forecasts.” In New York City, where the temps could hit 70 degrees Saturday, allergy symptoms will “become more severe,” the site says. April is generally the worst month of allergy season,

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Two years before the Boston Marathon bombing, the Russian government concealed key information on one of the killers that might have thwarted the attack, a new report charges.Kremlin officials intercepted a phone conversation in which Tamerlan Tsarnaev discussed Islamic jihad with his mother, but they withheld the information from the FBI, according to the U.S. inspector general report that comes as the one-year anniversary of the bombing approaches. Had the FBI been privy to the red-flag phone call, it would have prompted the bureau to take an extensive look at Tsarnaev, according to The New York Times. “Had they known what the

President Barack Obama is planning to sign two new executive actions aimed at narrowing the wage gap between men and women Tuesday, even as the Obama White House pays its female staffers less than men.The first executive action will be an order banning federal contractors from retaliation against employees who disclose or ask about their wages, according to reports. His other executive action will require federal contractors to submit data to the government about their employees compensation by sex and race.

Fears that high-speed traders have been rigging the U.S. stock market went mainstream last week thanks to allegations in a book by financial author Michael Lewis, but there may be a more serious threat to investors: the increasing amount of trading that happens outside of exchanges.Some former regulators and academics say so much trading is now happening away from exchanges that publicly quoted prices for stocks on exchanges may no longer properly reflect where the market is. And this problem could cost investors far more money than any shenanigans related to high frequency trading. When the average investor, or even

It’s good Gov. Cuomo understands New York has a problem with cigarette smuggling. Too bad he has yet to figure out what’s really driving the problem of illegal smokes: our high tobacco taxes.Just days after a key report found New York has the highest percentage of illegal cigarettes of any state, the governor announced the creation of a new “strike force” meant to crack down.Teams from 13 state, local and federal agencies, he said, are joining to stop “the influx of counterfeit and untaxed tobacco products into New York” and nab smugglers who “evade the law and rob the state

After his health-care law surpassed the low-ball enrollment target of 7 million, President Obama staged a Rose Garden rally and zinged doubters: “Armageddon has not arrived.” At least he did not declare: “Mission Accomplished.”The country is years from knowing whether Obama’s overhaul of the health-care system fulfills the promise of delivering universal coverage.While large numbers of Americans have found the program very advantageous, including people who were formerly uninsured, many others have been forced to change plans or change doctors — contrary to Obama’s repeated promises.Obama tacitly admits the unintended consequences every time he waives a deadline or mandate in

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

The author of the Twilight of Abundance, David Archibald, sent an email a few days ago, saying “there is a whole new world coming.” Archibald, who’s an Australian, warns in his book that the world is running out of food, energy and security. Where he differs from Malthus, however, is in arguing that the shortages are the consequence of policy, rather than the inherent limitations of the universe. The world is doing everything it can to run in the opposite direction of abundance because we think we have too much. The West dreads warmer weather, even though warmer weather might

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
