Brooklyn Residents Hold Rally Calling For End To ‘Knockout Game’ Assaults

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Brooklyn residents are taking a stand against the so-called “knockout game,” a violent trend in which youths sucker-punch unsuspecting strangers for kicks.

Community leaders and local residents held a rally in East New York on Friday in the hope of bringing an end to the assaults.

. . . .

Online videos from various cities show young suspects randomly punching innocent victims.

Community activist Tony Herbert from the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network said they are calling on social media companies and their advertisers to stop showing images of these attacks.

“The one thing we do denounce is the opportunity of folks to use social media like World Star Hip Hop and YouTube to proliferate this kind of stupidity,” Herbert said.

Mustn’t let the common people get off-Narrative.  Justice-for-Trayvon Forever!!!

They aren't mad that their kids are ruthless thugs, just that they are posting evidence of it that the Whites can see on the internet.

They still don't have too much to worry about though. I think that no matter how many black on white assault videos are posted on the internet the majority of whites still refuse to draw any conclusions from it. Yes, I see an uptick in the comment sections but there's no real world pushback. And I'm not expecting one.
