Police: Examples Of Troubling ‘Knockout’ Game Popping Up All Over Recent Attacks Have Targeted Brooklyn Jews; 78-Year-Old Woman Latest Victim
In the recent attacks in Brooklyn, a 20-year old Israeli man in a hooded jacket was attacked, and another man’s 12-year-old son was hit on his way to Hebrew school.
At a community meeting between blacks and Jews in Crown Heights, an assistant police chief said there have been four such assaults since early October. So, more police have been deployed. Many present said young African-Americans need to be educated about such bias crimes.
“We need to engage these young people and engage their parents,” said the Rev. Taharka Robinson of the Brooklyn Anti-Violence Coalition.
We need to engage violent criminals?
Assemblyman Hikind said that’s fine, but he wants more.
“I’m for people being arrested. That would be the best education in the world,” Hikind said.
Hikind urged the NYPD to catch those responsible quickly and show the “knockout game” is not a game at all.
Many are calling “knockout” another example of peer pressure and showing off, with tragic and sometimes fatal results.
In the reverse situation, there would be a presidential speech, marches by Al Sharpton, 24×7 coverage by CNN, and the Guardian would write a special feature about racism in America.
And whatever you do, don’t profile. That is a federal offense. Just be a good citizen and let yourself be killed.
