Disturbing game called 'knockout'

Postby HadzSays » Sat Nov 16, 2013 12:02 am

Firstly, Hello BlueLine forum. I've been creeping around reading and reading for quite some time. I'm 22, and about to write a RPAB test on the 27th at the Montreal detachment.

As for this topic, I recently came across a video that is just as real as it is disturbing. The scary part is its an ongoing problem, with an alarming frequency.

Nothing says "Street cred" like a guy hitting a girl from behind then running away. :banghead:

"You just knock em out, hit em with a blow, and you take their belongings."

Stay classy.

It's just a matter of time until they try to blindside a CCW holder who reacts in fear for their life.

Problem is these fairies mostly don't approach face to face and warn you, or so it appears. Can't shoot them when they are running away after the fact. Still it's nice to hear how it worked out for that one kid in the video, even if he still thinks 'it was just a game" and he didn't do it many times, "JUST 6 or 7," which for someone with a penchant to minimize their actions means more than 7. You know maybe just a dozen. If they shoot me they're just poor sports, cuz its just a game.

too bad he didn't aim higher. Like in the face.
When things get bad, I take comfort in knowing they could always be worse.

I assume the parents come out and say "but he is such a nice kid, why did he have to shoot?"

And then probably sue the victim because he shot the accused...and the bus company for having a bus stop in a location that was on the accused walking route.

Actually the kid takes responsibility for his actions in the interview. Refreshing.

This display of responsibility confuses me. So I'm just going to go back to being angry.

>>> STORY HERE <<<

Knockout Game Turns Deadly: 60 Year Old Woman Shoots and Kills 2 Teens After Being Punched

Police are still trying to piece together the events of Monday night after a woman was attacked and then fired shots into the crowd of teens that assulted her.

Beulah Montgomery, who just turned 60 yesterday, says she was walking home after purchasing lottery tickets when she says a group of teens, 7 of them, approached her. Montgomery initally thought they were going to attempt to steal her purse but says she was instead hit by one of the individuals as a second attempted to hit her. That's when she grabbed her gun.

"All I could feel was pain and I said to myself I had made it to 60 and I wanted to atleast see 61," she recalled. "Then I started praying and I asked the Lord to guide my hands" Montgomery says she then reached into her purse and and shot in the direction of the teens and they started to flee. However two of them didn't make without being hit.

Beulah who is a member of her local neighborhood watch said she has always carried a gun after being mugged once before. "Its a shame you can't walk through your own neighborhood where you are supposed to feel safe without being assulted and mistreated," she continues. "I purchased the gun hoping I would never have to use it, but I'm glad to still be in the land of the living."

The same cannot be said for her two victims, Montgomery fired 5 times hitting one of the teens in the chest and the other in the stomach. Because of their age police are not releasing the names at this time, but are saying the teens died as a result of the gun shot wounds. Police are still looking for the others teens who were apart of the group. Witnesses say they ran off after the gun shots were fired.

Police have not yet charged Montgomery, who has no prior arrests, but she was detained and later released.

This is the latest story in what seems to be a string of similar incidents happening over the US where teens are playing something called the "knockout game" where they approach strangers and attempt to knock them out with one punch.

Good for her. She shouldn't be charged at all.
I like her quote....an innocent person should be allowed to walk around their own neighborhood without being assaulted by a gang of losers who want to sucker punch a friggen 60 year old woman.
Hopefully the others are found, arrested, and charged with something related to causing death in the commission of a crime.
