Trend Alert: The ‘Knockout Game’
Recently there has been a spate of random attacks against pedestrians by teens who try to knock them unconscious in one punch.
Although this “game” has gone on for years, lately there have been some fatalities associated with the practice, reports NBC News.
The perpetrators of these crimes generally are male teenagers, ages 13-19. In New York City, authorities are treating them as anti-Semitic hate crimes because most of the attacks have been against Jewish people.
