Apparently, this "game" has been going on for a while. Further, it has another name used by virtually all of the participants: "Polar Bear Hunting." I wonder why our illustrious DoJ head honcho Mr. Eric Holder has not held a press conference to denounce this "game" as being racially motivated. I know if you simply use words and criticize our illustrious BO, major figures such as Oprah will call you racists on national TV. Here, getting suckered punched or even killed is just a silly game by some kids. Too bad the guy who got shot did not end up with more prison time or a more serious injury. Also lucky for the victim that our illustrious DoJ hasn't yet banned guns.

If that should happen, which is very unlikely, you will then see DoJ, our super hero BO, Oprah, and others step on stage with a pep rally and denounce the USA as being so racist.

More jail time ,period ,kid acts like this is nothing ,most people attacked would think different.THe video offers witness to thug like behavior ,even when their down the blows still keep coming until their unconcious.If things go south for the thugs I can Gaurantee they have a weapon to then control ,or if need be kill the individual .A 3 TO 5 yr sentence would be more along the lines of a premeditate ,taped while laughing CRIME.

The middle snippet below is appalling. 18 months for killing a man by beating and stomping him to death when the knockout BS apparently failed. Yes, they were 13 and 16, but 18 months? At the least they should be in the system until they are 21.

It's unfortunately that more people don't CCW; the roving gangs might not rove quite so much if there were more certain (and serious) consequences for their "game".


Quote:
The consequences can be deadly serious:
In September, in Jersey City, two 13-year-olds and a 14-year-old were charged as juveniles in the slaying of Ralph Eric Santiago, 46. He was discovered Sept. 10 with his neck snapped and his head stuck between iron fence posts, according to the AP. County prosecutors have said they believe the accused teens were playing "knockout."
In May, in Syracuse, N.Y., a pack of teens trying to knock out Michael Daniels, 51, with one powerful punch ended up beating and stomping him to death, according to the wire service. A 16-year-old was found guilty of manslaughter, and his 13-year-old co-defendant pleaded guilty to assault confessing he began the deadly beating by attempting to knock Daniels out cold with one blow. Both of the defendants were sentenced to 18 months behind bars.
Also in May, Elex Murphy, now 20, was sentenced to life in prison plus 25 years in St. Louis, Mo., for killing a Vietnamese immigrant as part of the game in 2011.

Why were they hated from before? Take your time formulating a response.

Do you assume no group has ever been hated? Why is any group discriminated against?

Do you think I meant some were racist, then became un-racist and then this caused them to re-hate/re-racist? That would be an incorrect interpretation.

I was asking for clarification on your statement. Was that your long way of saying you don't have any?
