Knock off the “Knockout Game!”

knockout-gameThese sub-human, mentally-defective pieces of shit should be brought up on attempted murder and murder (in those cases that end that way).  How’s that for an opening sentence?   Watch the news clip video below.  This “game” is actually not new.  But, for some reason it’s suddenly getting more play in the media.  This is truly disgusting.

 

The victims shouldn’t have been surprised.

But, there’s a lesson to be learned here.  I’ve often talked about situational awareness.  The teacher (victim) in the first surveillance video clip should have seen it coming.  There are SIX perps walking slowly (and without obvious purpose or direction) in the teacher’s general direction.  They are effectively lying in wait.  As they get closer, a few of them actually start to move over (directly towards the teacher).  There are red flags flying from the “git go.”  These guys are up to NO GOOD.

Worse… the “enlightened” teacher (who would surely not dare “profile” this group of choir boys) has BOTH hands occupied.  One is carrying a briefcase.  The other is carrying something else.  I can’t tell from the video, but I’d bet his eyes were averted.  He’s a SITTING DUCK.  And, he has no chance of defending himself.  And, it’s his own fault.  Sorry if I sound crass, but this guy is either oblivious or just naive.  He’s in “Condition White” even as he’s being approached by SIX thugs.

Profiling can be proactive.

It’s worth noting that there IS a racial component to these attacks that are referred to as a “game.”  If one is to look at the news reports of these attacks, they are perpetrated by one particular demographic against another.  I’ll let you do the math.  It’s not “racist” to point that out.  It’s racist to ignore and deny it, in my opinion.  It is what it is.

Another surveillance video in the news story shows a woman blindsided from behind.  I doubt the approach was a silent one.  I think she DID hear the footsteps, as she put her hand on her purse shoulder strap as he approached.  But, she didn’t turn around or move away.  You can usually hear footsteps behind you, especially when the perp is running or moving quickly.  If something doesn’t look or sound right… it isn’t.  It’s time to ACT.  If it’s a false alarm, so be it.  But, if you let your desire to claim some twisted moral high ground cloud your hard-wired-from-caveman-days-but-still-useful instinct for survival… well… you might not… survive.

This very sick “game” can obviously cause grave bodily harm, permanent disability, and even death.  There are cases with each of those outcomes.

The perpetrators of this sick “game” are looking for victims who are not paying attention.  They key to “success” is to blindside the victim.  The only way for a good citizen to avoid being a victim is to not play the “game.”

Speed is life.

Licensed concealed carry is an option that may be exercised with training, practice, along with some introspective consideration. Can you? Would you?

The key to survival is MOVING.  Well… first you have to be AWARE.  Then at the FIRST opportunity… MOVE YOUR ASS.  Just move in a direction AWAY from the potential threat.   But, do not take your eyes off them.

This is not the time to be politically correct.  This has nothing to do with being “racially tolerant” or to pride yourself on being “enlightened” and not “paranoid.”

When six bad-ass motherfuckers are sauntering in your direction, that’s NOT GOOD.  Looking away with both your hands otherwise occupied is a BAD idea.

If you are armed, you STILL move.  Getting away (while not losing sight of them) is always the best and first choice.  But, you should at least have one hand on your weapon (could be pepper spray, a firearm, a kubaton, or even a fistful of keys) and the other hand ready for defensive action (and not in your pocket!).  The best outcome is that nothing happens and both parties move on.

Be aware of your surroundings.  Become a student of human and subhuman behavior.  Let these cowards know you’re on to them.  They prey upon unsuspecting victims.  Don’t be one.

Anyone want to speculate about the outcome if any of these thugs try this crap in Texas or Florida, where they are fairly likely to encounter an armed intended victim?

Update:  In this online story about the teacher’s case, it said, “Police say a good way to prevent this from happening to you is to be aware of your surroundings.”  Umm… yeah… that’s what I’ve been saying.  🙂

    Good advice Mike. Unfortunately in this day and age one must be aware of ones surroundings at all times. Whether going shopping at the mall or grocery store, on vacation, or just going for a walk in one’s own neighborhood one must be aware of ones surroundings! It’s just how it is these days!

    • Ken says:

      Just had to add…where have we gone wrong as a society where young people make a game of sucker punching unsuspecting folks, some of whom are obviously weaker to begin with, and thinking it’s funny?

      • The Dental Warrior says:

        They think it’s “funny,” because they are subhuman mental-defectives. Look at the “caliber” of people they interviewed for the story. ‘Nuff said.

    • The Dental Warrior says:

      Absolutely right, Ken. In almost every instance, the victims are oblivious to their surroundings. They didn’t see it coming, because they weren’t looking. Instead they’re absorbed in whatever they’re doing on their phones.

    A victim of this type of attack, Phoebe Connolly, spoke out about her feelings after her attack: “Ultimately, I have moved past it and I really have no hard feelings about what has happened. I see it as another reason to support our youth with activities and youth programs, which is actually what I do for work. It’s great to see teenagers do things when they are supported and empowered.”
    This is reminiscent of Anne Frank’s reaction to the Nazi’s campaign: “It’s difficult in times like these: ideals, dreams and cherished hopes rise within us, only to be crushed by grim reality. It’s a wonder I haven’t abandoned all my ideals, they seem so absurd and impractical. Yet I cling to them because I still believe, in spite of everything, that people are truly good at heart. I simply can’t build my hopes on a foundation of confusion, misery, and death. I hear the approaching thunder that, one day, will destroy us too, I feel the suffering of millions. And yet, when I look up at the sky, I somehow feel that this cruelty too shall end, and that peace & tranquility will return once again.”

      Ms. Connolly is proof that there are a few people that have to be punched in the nose more than once before they realize the person punching them is evil and will only be stopped if punched back.

      I don’t feel so pollyannish towards these cretinous scourges of society. I do not feel they are worthy of being among other humans…. ever. And, I mean that.

      Your mileage may vary.

    Gee Mike when I first read this post I thought for sure that I would come back weeks later and find that people had torn you a new one for being “racist” and “violent.” Not much comment.
    I think you were right on the money as usual. This behavior qualifies for a free trip to the electric chair. (My preference would be a .45 bullet between the eyes, and I would be happy to be the one to pull the trigger. But I’d settle for the chair if that’s all the lib government with allow.)
    So what should our reaction to this be? As you say, for one, be prepared to defend yourself. I carry, so that I am prepared to defend other innocent lives as well as my own.
    Next exercise prejudice. WHAT? Yes, use your capacity to predict behavior based on the statistics of crime that apply to different people groups. We all know them. If you read the paper or know who is in jail, you know who commits crime. We all do. Only those who follow the religion of political correctness find it a sin to admit to those statistics. If you know where and when not to be, and you know where and when to have your hand on your gun, you will be in a much better position to not be a victim of this heinous crap.
    Next, push for censorship. WHAT?? We are afloat in a culture of media that depicts and glorifies this type of barbaric violence. Video games, movies, you name it. If there were a national program to create violent barbarians, it would look like the culture that we are living in. It needs to end. There have to be some reasonable limits to what is depicted in our culture. Do you know that before Al and Tipper Gore went to Washington, and long before Al invented the Internet or Global Warming, that censorship of the record and video industry was their mission in life, for the very reasons we are talking about?
    Lastly, I say pray. I don’t know if any earthly effort can stop this train to cultural chaos we are on. We are unmoored from objective moral principals, which is to say, the Bible. I pray that God turns these people around before we have to put a bullet in their heads.

      Thanks for your comments, Mark. Like I said in my post…. I believe it’s racist to IGNORE the racially-motivated trends in crime.
