City of Hate: Spike in ‘Knockout’ Attacks Has New Yorkers on Edge

As per a CBS series of reports, the knockout-game also known as polar-bear-hunting (guess who’s the polar-bear) is still highly popular in New York. There were numerous warnings on Friday about a potential surge in the knockout-game attacks. To quote from the CBS piece:

Video of one such incident shows a woman being suddenly kicked and then punched by a man. She was knocked out cold on the ground, but rather than help her several people took out phones to take pictures.Nobody called the police.

It happened in Pittsburgh more than a month ago, and something similar happened in Brooklyn on Thursday night. “As he went to tie up his dogs to confront these kids, the group distracted him from the front and then one came up behind him and hit him in the head,” a witness said.


As per CBS’ part, descriptions of the suspects would be nice, but that would disrupt the tired narrative about oppression, or whatever the complaint is this month.

If you’re not familiar with polar bear hunting or the knock-out game (it’s basically the same thing), well, this is a phenomenon sweeping the country since at least 2011 and it consists in gangs of feral (usually black) teens attacking innocent bystanders and knocking them out-cold for cheap thrills. The victims are usually white people, hence the polar-bear-hunting reference (for millennials reading this piece, polar bears are white).

Whether this is a cultural thing, a game or a ritual, it doesn’t matter. You won at the knockout-game, which by the way has already led to a number of deaths, if you knock out/render unconscious your unsuspecting victim. Usually, only one member of the group of feral “teens” throws the punch, but sometimes they take turns until one lucky guy (or girl) sends the polar bear to sleep on the concrete.

The lucky individual who delivers the “fatal” punch wins the crown of Knockout King. By the way, robbery is almost never a motive, as the Knockout Game/Polar Bear Hunting is done for fun, in order to establish in-group status, thus sending a crystal clear message on who rules the streets in the hood, something like dogs marking their territories.

Even the eternally offended and professional black Al Sharpton called the Knock Out Game to be “insane thuggery”, conceding that “We would not be silent if it was the other way around.”, i.e. whites attacking blacks.

Also, famous black radio host in Atlanta, T. J. Sotomayor respectively, has said that “white people should counter the Knockout Game with one called Shootout Game.”
