Within the past week people have posted about this new “game” teens are playing which the main adjective is to knock an individual out. I found out about it a week and half ago when my uncle may have been a victim of this vicious game.
The “Knockout Game” also known as “Polar Bear Hunting” has been around for a while, but has come to light this year and more within recent months due to overwhelming number of incidents and deaths. Now the media is starting to pick it up and everyone is starting to find out about it.
How does one play?
Well, according to Watchdog Wire, it starts with kids (predominately black) anywhere from 3 to 30 people. As a group, they search for ‘usually’ white people, preferably alone, elderly and somewhat defenseless. If they can’t find any, Asians are the next ethnic group targeted. When a target is selected, at least one of the kids approaches the target and then suddenly sucker punches them in the face as hard as they can. If the victim is knocked out, the person that hit them wins. If the victim is not knocked out, then they continue to hit and kick them until they’re too tired to hit anymore or until the person is dead.’
Pretty easy game and fun right?
If you thought the world was already an evil place, well this game just upped the ante. By the way, in all seriousness, how much of a “man” do you think you are if you have to blindside someone to get a hit? Can I say punk? Oh yes indeed!
Furthermore, why has this taken such a long time to come to light? Where are people being outraged by this somewhat-racial game? Where is all the media blitz? Why aren’t Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson Sr. making it a huge issue? Could it be because its dealing with whites therefore nobody cares?
Watchdog Wire said it best and I just reiterated it with my own words. This is a topic I’m passionate about when it comes to racial issues and it being a double standard.
Besides all the horror and the issue of it not becoming a media frenzy, I want to inform people of this. To be aware of your surroundings. You have to look around and listen. Don’t walk around as if your floating on cloud 9 with your headphones in or your face in your cellphone. That instantly makes you a target! You’re distracted and wont even see it coming.
In September, a 13-year-old boy was sentenced to 18 months of confinement for the beating death of a 51-year-old man in upstate New York. This child murdered someone and only got a slap on the hand. But if you attacked him back and killed him? Your sentence would be a lot more than a slap on the hand.
And now people are starting to fight back. Just Monday, Marvell Weaver (teen), from Michigan went to attack a father who was picking up his daughter from the school bus when he failed in his attempt to hit the father. The father took out his legal gun and shot him twice. Weaver has since then be detained and pled guilty. Read more here.
I have a message for these scumbags–
Oh wait, did I just condone violence? Oops…
