Knockout Game Gaining National Attention
Today on Powertalk with Lorraine Jacques-White, we discussed the brutal new game many teens are beginning to participate in, which has begun to gain national attention from citizens and law enforcement officials alike.
This “game” is played by teenagers simply approaching a person at random and punching them in the face without notice in efforts to knock the unsuspecting victim unconscious. Some teens would record these random acts of violence and post them to social media sites and blog sites.
Currently there has only been one shooting and one arrest stemming from these random attacks, with many taking place in the city of New York. It has been reported that anyone arrested for participating in this knockout game will be charged with a hate crime.
