So mugging is a game now?

Makes me want to walk alone in these areas now. 'Cause I like to play a game called Bone Breaker where I break the bones of anyone trying to play the Knockout Game on me. Maybe I'll get an achievement for it.

I don't think they were even stealing . . .

Even the people who were being asked what knockout is, they were happily explaining how the game works. ugh

The police almost never stop crime. They always show up after the fact to write up a report. Whenever the police actually does stop a crime from being committed, it's headline news.. only because it's extremely rare.

Having lived in a city, pretty much this.

Crime got really bad in the neighborhood by us and the city mandated that a cop be walking the streets and maintain an obvious presence at all times, and he just stood outside a coffee shop and chatted up a cute barista ALL DAY while thugs were making obvious drug deals six feet from him!

eh...not really. Pineapple Express is a comedy of how dumb people on drugs are; not how 'badass' they are at horribly missing cops. Honestly I think it's similar to the Nazi's with the Jews. The Nazi's hated the Jews for having all the money and being different, these kids are raised to hate.

It's weird, so my girlfriend started up community college classes and she was the only white girl in a small (~15) class. The class was asked about people they don't like and most of the class said 'white people'. When it got to her she said...."why don't you all like me?" They laughed it off and said 'oh not you'. This response suggests that there's something in many kids lives that is teaching them to hate other than direct bad experiences with white people; maybe it's not media...maybe it's just their parents? Or unrestrained hate talk on the internet (i hate to suggest any limitations of freedom of speech...)?

Okay, there are some bad/lazy cops, I'll give you that.

But honestly, how would the police stop knockout? Let me rephrase it this way, ask yourself, how many times have you walked across some complete stranger. Do you expect for there to be a police watching you each time that happens?

Yes, increasing police presence (not the lazy kind) will lower these kinds of stupid shit. But at the same time, consider how easy and quick it is to do a knockout. It doesn't even take 10 seconds to sucker punch someone which means that no matter how much police presence we get, there will always be plenty of instances for some douche to play this "game".

Situational awareness + a CCW

If he doesn't knock you out with that one punch, then him and his gang will deliver an even worse beating. Knock outs are more likely to happen when the person on the receiving end do not expect it. So, if you come across a group of black kids, avoid them. If not, brace yourself and get ready to pull your gun and shoot some little shitstains.

Here's a pretty clever solution (partial solution); crowd funding a private police force for your local town.

HELL YEAH with Pineapple videos.

We need robocop on the street and not the cops since they won't get rid of this problem with stupid knockout game.

Well, here's some good news. One of these little bitches tried to knock out a CCW holder and got shot in the ass in the process.
