Philadelphia is the epicenter of knockout assaults…and actually black on white violence in general. For instance another feral thug hobby of choice; violent flash mob attacks. So much so that Colin Flaherty author of “‘White Girl Bleed A Lot’” devoted an entire chapter to Philly alone.
(NBC10- Philadelphia) –A cyclist is recovering after being beaten in what detectives believe is a “knockout game” attack along a Philadelphia street.
The male victim was riding his bike along the 900 block of Catherine Street in the Bella Vista section of the city just before 8 p.m. on Friday when he was randomly punched by a group of teens, police said.
After being hit, police say the cyclist asked the group — made up of five teen boys and three teen girls — why they hit him. Without answering, the group then continued beating the man.
The victim met up with police at Broad and Carpenter Streets following the attack.
Philadelphia detectives tell NBC10 they believe the teens were playing the “knockout game” when they beat the man.
Far from fun, the ‘game’ consists of a doer suddenly punching a stranger to try and knock them out.
As for Friday night’s attack, the cyclist’s injuries were not life-threatening and he did not need to be hospitalized, police said.
The teens remain at large.
Robbie Cooper of Urban Grounds offers some practical advice well worth heeding on how to avoid being a victim of the ‘knockout game’ here. Ignore the advice at your own risk.
