Interesting piece about this, I think some people seem to have reached their conclusions based on CNN reports & a bunch of YouTube video's,

http://www.patheos.com/blogs/christandpopculture/2013/11/the-knockout-game-myth-and-its-racist-roots/

A few excerpts;

"Here’s the fascinating thing about this “spreading” trend: nobody seems to have any evidence that it’s spreading, or that it’s new, or that it’s racially motivated, or that black youths are the ones typically responsible, or that whites are typically targeted."

"Most sources claim that it is spreading, and a number of sources claim that it is racially motivated. But how do they know? Where are they getting their data from?"

N.B. I was linked to the source from a friend, I'm not into all that religious stuff, so whilst it is only a blog, the links for it's sources seem pretty solid.


Oh, get off it, will ya?
It has been and always will be common knowledge that young black males are undisciplined and lacking in morals and severely racist when in groups. If the majority of criminal offenders and the main prison population is of a certain ethnicity, then it would seem logical that that ethnic group is predisposed to psychopathic behavior/


I'm sorry, but could you be more clear about what you are responding to... is it the fact that I called the article 'interesting'? or is there something specific within the article that you disagree with? Could you highlight a few points and explain why you think they are wrong/untrue? Thanks.

My guess is that he's doesn't agree with the part which questions whether or not these attacks are racially motivated and that it's not proven that the majority of these attacks are committed by black youths.

You may well be correct, but his response came across as a rant rather than anything of substance so i just wanted clarification of what his opinions are based on and where he gets this information. Though it is also possible that he hasn't done any reading into the topic (or the article for that matter). Im all for debate but i think when people make sweeping generalizations, they should back it up.

Mentally disabled man beaten

Recorded surveillance footage at the gas station on Telegraph Road shows Jermaine walk in and visit with the clerk who usually gives him a cigarette. Jermaine steps out of the way so the clerk can help the customer who pays for gas. You can see they never appear to speak.

The customer puts his money back in the wallet, takes one step toward the door, pivots and punches Jermaine who falls to the ground. Jermaine was kicked and stomped on while he was lying on the floor

Makes me wonder how far the human mind has to be in the depths in order to feel good about oneself for beating a handicapped innocent.

Read a post from a guy I know:

A friend of my dad's was stationed at Keflavic in Iceland in the 80's.

There was an armed robbery, it made national news. Radio announcer went on the air and explained what they did was just terrible and they should turn themselves in... so they did. Out of guilt. I have a feeling I would love to party there. People are discouraged greatly from any kind of physical anger.


He clarified later that he meant party peacefully without worrying about some idiot on steroids killing him over a girl. Very Happy

I believe earlier this week that for the first time in their nation's history, Iceland's police officers killed a man.

Sounds like even Iceland is going downhill.
