    "Knockout game" in Metro Richmond & OC

    Wonder if OC - the target is obviously armed with self-protection - would actually discourage being "Knocked Out" ...

    Police: ‘Knockout game’ type crimes hit Richmond streets
    There is a group of teenagers going around Richmond and knocking out people on the streets, Richmond Police Det. W. Cutshall said. The teens then steal whatever they want from the victim.

    ...

    The victims’ injuries in the attacks have grown more serious recently, he added. In some instances victims have been knocked unconscious or lost teeth in the attack.

    “The suspects are pretty much the same description, they are described usually as black males between the ages of 14 and 16. They are 5′ 8″, thin and usually have short hair,” he said. “Every one of the victims so far has been a white male, approximately 18 – 21 years of age.”

    He said the teens have not said anything to the victims during the attacks.

    “They’re just knocking them to the ground and taking whatever and taking off with it,” Cutshall said.

    When asked if the Richmond crimes were considered the “Knockout Game,” a crime trend reported in cities like New York and Philadelphia, Det. Cutshall noted the similarities and differences.

    “I understand the knockout game is more of an assault. They don’t even seem to take anything,” he said. “This is similar, but yet different. This is an assault with something being taken. That seems to be the difference.”

    Cutshall said the crimes happen between 8 p.m. – 10 p.m. He said the victims are alone at the time.
    It seems that here, like elsewhere, this crime is racial.

    Also known as

    "Polar Bear" hunting according to other police departments. Crimes are committed by young blacks on white victims.

    "Similar but different"??? Yes, these thugs are not just assaulting and battering the victims, they are robbing them too.

    Sadly, TV 6 says nothing about the white victims in their version of the story. Guess they don't want it to be a hate crime.

    Open carry of a firearm will not prevent you from becoming a victim of this newest Thug Sport.
    Stay off the Smartphone, pull the Ipod ear buds, keep your head on a swivel.
    Situational Awareness, ....... being observant of what is going on around you, will.

    Don't act like a clueless victim, You might not wind up as as a clueless victim.

    Here is what the Times has to say:

    City police focus on Fan, Randolph attacks, holdups
    Richmond police are warning the public about a series of attacks and robberies in the Fan District and Randolph neighborhood that appear to be getting increasingly violent.

    In the most recent incident, a man was knocked almost unconscious, and in the robbery before that one, the victim lost several teeth, authorities said today.

    “These things are getting more serious,” said Richmond police detective W. Cutshall.

    ...

    Cutshall said he has no evidence that the perpetrators of these attacks are playing a game called “knockout” in which assailants try to knock someone out with one punch.

    He also said it’s unclear whether the attacks could be gang-related.

    Anyone with information on the attacks is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (804) 780-1000.

    Anyone who sees something suspicious in the area also is asked to call 911.
    Have you read the comments in both the WTVR report and the RTD report? Interesting comments.

    It is. They're just afraid to say it.
    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?

    Sometimes the attacker ends up worse

    I don't know the location of the first example, the second I think is the one where the attacker ended up being shot in the butt.

    http://www.wnd.com/wnd_video/knockou...-her-attacker/

    The above is a shakey cell phone video of an attack on a woman. The woman turns on the attacker and fights back, then a passing male runs over and appears to kick the thug in the head. As a warning to anyone with sensitive ears anywhere nearby, there is some swearing in the above video

    http://www.wnd.com/wnd_video/teen-pl...ice-by-victim/

    A news report about an attack with a tazer in Michigan. Tazer failed, and the attacker was shot twice by his intended victim, a guy waiting to pick his child up at the school bus stop. Attacker wasn't killed and is now behind bars.

    That's just two stories, I'm sure there's a lot more out there

    When are these IDIOTS going to STOP calling this a game. This is battery plan and simple or a more serious crime if the victim has property stolen or dies.


    Just wait for one of the "players" to get hurt and his poor mother well be crying on TV about how he was good boy trying to turn his life around.
    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.

    Oh boy. Another Zimmerman thing. Get the president, Holder, Jesse, and Al on the perp's band wagon. Poor kid, didn't mean to hurt anyone. And the mother claimed he was stabbed in the back and that means it wasn't self defense. Ever try to stab someone? If you're in their clutches, most likely it is going to be in his back... or neck or somewhere not in the front.

    Yep, black teens.... innocent little victims. You just watch. Pressure will be put on the local authorities and before you know it, this victim will be the bad guy.

    Where in the world is her husband and the boy's father?

    I wonder how many progressives are willing to admit that "fatherlessness" is more lethal than any AK-47?

    I wonder.

    Mark shoots hard and straight from the shoulder - tells it like he sees it.

    Not gang related he says. Just "bored" teenagers.
