The Knockout game:
These punks that are going around knocking out unsuspecting people hopefully are going to run into some guy with a knife or a gun that will use it in defense of himself and they will deserve whatever they get. Hopefully it will set an example for the rest of the cowards to know how it is to be on the receiving end.

At least 2 deaths have resulted in this insane game that these snakes in the grass are playing just because they have “nothing better to do.”
Going back a few years in 1984, a guy from New York named Bernhard Goetz who the media dubbed “subway vigilante” after the fact, was getting harassed on the subway by four black men when they tried to mug him. In self-defense he pulled out a gun and shot the four of them.
Goetz was found not guilty of the shooting that left one of the assailants permanently paralyzed but found guilty of carrying a hand gun that is illegal in New York State. Of all places I think NY should reconsider that law to even the playing field.
The “subway vigilante’s” situation can be compared to the game that these knockout punks are playing. I believe that Goetz was well with-in his rights shooting them.
That was certainly a difficult for those ruffians to learn.
As the old say goes “if you don’t want to get burnt, don’t play with matches”. If the tables are turned on the knockout punks and they wind up like the boys on the subway, they will deserve what they get. I would like to see an end to this today but that is doubtful.
A person is in as much danger of dying after getting sucker punched as a person being shot or stabbed.
What these pugilistic cowards have created is a monster that is gotten out of control around the country and is going to get worse because if all the publicity it is getting.
Sooner or later there is going to be an incident like the Goetz situation where the victim will retaliate in kind and it is not going to be pretty.
It was my opinion then that Goetz got a raw deal and I still think so today. The judge should have given him 6 months of house arrest, maybe.
If an attacker has any inclination that they may come out on the bad end of one of these savage escapades, they will think a lot differently before they get out of hand.
Anymore it seems that the USA has become a dog eat dog environment. Whomever bits first and bites hardest is going to be the victor. Not a pretty picture.
