(VIDEO) #Knockout Game Will Get Some Kid Hurt (or Worse)

First, I want you to watch the video...


Is this not one of the most ridiculous things ever? I don't get it. What in the world has happened to kids parents? How can you have a child capable of something like this unless you're not doing your job? I know all parents aren't slackers, but let's be honest: most of the kids in this video probably do not have proper parenting structure at home.

I love boxing and cage fighting, so I understand the fascination of seeing someone knocked out.  However, at least those people know that they're in a fight.  These people on the street do not.  The fact that these teens target women and children as well makes it even more disturbing to most people.

For those of you who jog or walk with earbuds in your ears, then I would advise you to make sure one of your ears is free to hear around you.  Society gets crazier and crazier each day and a walk to work or a jog in the neighborhood can lead to a concussion or worse.

As for the people perpetrating this act, don't think you're not putting yourself in harm's way as well.  There are more open-carry gun laws being passed and licenses to carry permits being issued.  One mistimed swing can result in you being shot.

  1. Bored kids wanting to be famous on the internet. It's all about getting on Tosh.0 these days.

    I'd play a game like this if we were both willing participants. But then that's Fight Club, and we can't talk about that.

    1. Exactly! Although this game has been around for a while, it's on an entirely different level thanks to social media.

  2. Not the smartest "game" to be playing: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/11/22/marvell-weaver-knockout-shot_n_4323723.html

    Only a matter of time before one of these idiots is killed by someone they target. And deservedly so. When you assault someone, you better be prepared to be assaulted (or worse) back.

    1. I agree, Lawfrog. Someone is going to catch something they can't wake up from if they don't watch out.

  3. I wish the media would stop calling it a "game" and acting like it's being played by little kids. It's out of parents' hands by this point. These are physically grown men inflicting violent attacks on innocent people. People ARE getting hurt: the people being violently attacked. Some have been killed. And there already has been an incident of an attacker being shot by someone with a CCP in Lansing, MI. It's self defense, not against a "kid" playing a "game," but against a physically adult attacker who aims to put you in the hospital.

    1. That's a great point. It probably shouldn't be called a game. Some of the people participating are teens, but they're old enough to probably be charged as an adult in most case. I agree with you.
