Video: The knockout game seems to be alive and well

posted at 3:31 pm on August 17, 2014 by Jazz Shaw

One of the running points of contention in the ongoing battle between the Left and Right media concerns the Knockout Game. But the questions, oddly enough, frequently don’t center on who is doing it or what should be done about, but rather whether or not it even exists. I have seen far too many liberal opinionators going forth, particularly on Twitter, and insisting that this is largely a non-issue, and mostly some propaganda dreamed up by conservatives to libel minorities. They might want to have a word with Jannatul Ferdous.

A pregnant woman was sucker-punched in the back of the head Thursday afternoon — and may be the latest victim of the creepy “knockout game,” law enforcement sources said.

Jannatul Ferdous, a 34-year-old Brooklyn resident who is six months pregnant, was walking down a sidewalk in Bedford-Stuyvesant alongside her sister when Willie Stephens, 33, allegedly sneaked up behind her and socked her in the head around 3:45 p.m. Thursday, sources said.

Ferdous was knocked unconscious during the sudden attack, but neither she nor her child was critically injured.

The video quality isn’t great, you’ll have to admit, coming from a security camera a few houses away. But it’s good enough to serve as a picture serving better than a thousand words.

The woman in question is very pregnant from the picture provided. It’s rather amazing that neither she nor the baby was seriously injured.

So is this still some conservative fantasy? The victim in this case wasn’t even white, but just as much in danger as any other unwilling participant in this “game.” This comes on top of reports of similar incidents down in Ferguson, of all places. But unlike large scale mayhem or robberies where lots of physical evidence might be found, these attacks appear to be largely spontaneous, opportunistic crimes of the moment. Much harder to prevent and difficult to trace unless you’re lucky enough to have a camera running somewhere nearby.

They are now, thanks to Section 8 relocating of inner city thugs into the suburbs and exurbs as more housing projects are torn down for gentrification. Turns out that inner city stuff was some prime real estate.

vlad martel on August 17, 2014 at 5:01 PM

Have you every owned section 8 housing? The way it works is that a private entity gets a low interest loan backed by the government and enters into a contract, usually 17 years, to provide housing that folks live in and the government pays the rent to private entities directly. Depending on the income of the renters, they may have to cough up a share. Every year you fill out these federal forms showing your expenses and rents are set with a small profit built in.

After 17 years or so you can do what you want with the property. It is called capitalism. Well, not during the rent controlled phase. Also there are tax credits for the owners (private entities) that came about to offset passive losses against PIGs (passive income generators).

Just a FYI as the owners of the properties are usually corporations.

HonestLib on August 17, 2014 at 5:31 PM

Constantine, I’ve been meaning to point out this inconsistency in your demilitarization argument. You are 100% correct that the police don’t need to”blow down doors and toss grenades into baby beds” or even blow away bedridden old men in order to serve a search warrant. It is also immoral that they have the authority to seize your property without due process.

But this should in no way impugn them for showing up to police a riot in riot gear. If people are looting and perpetrating an insurrection in a violent manner they need to be dealt with in kind by the police.

NOMOBO on August 17, 2014 at 5:01 PM

The issue I have is the fact that the Police are using a “militarized” posture by default, it has become their first choice go to posture and is used daily when it is not needed. It has invaded their day to day attitudes and responses to almost any situation, which is not good.

The bottom line is that some Police Forces have the attitude we have got the gear so we must use the gear. It is a self defeating cycle. They are routinely making things worse by using a maximum show of force first and for things like serving a bench warrant for failure to appear.

I have lived and visited countries that have true militarized Police Forces, and we do not want that happening here. Right now we are at the Mission Creep stage with regards to Law enforcement Agencies in the US.

HonestLib on August 17, 2014 at 5:38 PM

I’d like to pose a question and I don’t really care about the propriety of it, is it a coincidence that this phenomenon has occurred since Obama has become President? When you see the New Black Panther Party not prosecuted for obvious voter intimidation and the word gets out, “We’ve got one of ours in the White House and Justice Department so we don’t have to worry.” you can see this stuff happening.

The fact is that black people have been played for years by Democrats and the fact they’re not getting the desired results leads to frustration, which they take out in various ways. I have no clue why black people keep voting for Democrats. They have the same problems they’ve had for 60 years and it’s mainly because they vote for a party that would much rather have the issue than a solution.

I’m afraid there will come a turning point in this and it’s not going to be pretty. How long will it be before white people start looking for young black people to attack and get even with? How long before someone, fearing they’ll be attacked by a young black man, pulls out a weapon and shoots him, not knowing for sure if he was really going to be a victim of one of these attacks? I do believe these things are going to happen if crimes like this are not dealt with by our laws.

As far as black people still voting for Democrats, their leadership has failed them and, until they recognize that, they will continue to have the same problems. When you believe Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton have your best interests at heart, you’re automatically behind the curve.

bflat879 on August 17, 2014 at 5:12 PM

The black community is skeptical of the GOP, because before Rand Paul came along no GOP candidates would go by our communities to hear out our problems. For conservatism to be judged solely on merits, the GOP has to get past the negative caricatures created by the LEFT.

Rand Paul has gotten positive coverage on traditional liberal black sites. There is a potential for the GOP to get 25%-30% of the Black vote. That is about the percentage of blacks who are conservative.

Now as for Obama, that was I’m ashamed to admit it, but it was a solidarity thing. He was the first black mainstream candidate to do so well and have a chance at the presidency, and then some people saw him being attacked and considered it an attack on the community. So he got record turnout and even some conservative black votes he wouldn’t have if it was say Clinton.

Also a lot of Black conservatives tend to sit out elections as opposed to voting GOP. While it is also true that black turnout is generally very low, in a lot of elections.

Similar to England and their NHS, they trash it all day everyday in their main newspapers, even on the left, but when it was attacked by Americans, the headlines quickly turned to defending it, as a PRIDE/SOLIDARITY thing. Same with Romney and the Olympics, everyone in Britain was criticizing the handling of the Olympics, but when Romney also criticized it, it became a cause celebre.

Same with Obama.

Like Rand Paul has done by planting seeds in the black community, it may not pay much dividends, but in time it will grow, and it can be harvested.

Raquel Pinkbullet on August 17, 2014 at 5:40 PM

A couple months ago here at the “Taste of Cincinnati” attended by hundreds of thousands a 22 year old white guy was walking his sister back to her car and 5 black youths late teens/early twenties jumped him from behind, knocked him out, and stomped on his head when he was unconscious on the ground. Random attack.

As it turns out, the victim’s father is Joe Deters, county District Attorney. So now we’ve got a special prosecutor. They face 10 years for “ethnic intimidation”. Deters says he’s prosecuted several of these crimes. He called the perps “trash”. Nonpartisan should ask him, what kind of trash? And then nonpartisan will snicker, without waiting for an answer, because he knows what’s going on. He knows the hate and prejudice in the hearts of others. How does he know? That’s what I want to know.

This is just another example of democrat family destruction. When you have one momma with 5 different baby daddies, what do you expect. They don’t raise the kids, the street does. Another example of liberal policies based on emotion with destructive results. And we all know that liberals will never ever say that they screwed up because it was the right thing to do (wink wink). The only time you see a liberal in the inner city is when they want to stir up the divisiveness or remind them to vote for them.

It’s all about intimidation. These powerless young “youths” are desperate to establish themselves as someone to respect, but they don’t respect themselves or those around them. What they see as respect is the fear that can be aroused through physical violence. The strong ones become ghetto lords. The rest punch old men and pregnant women, to feel like big shots.

Personally, I believe the NAACP convention is one that should be avoided anyway because their leadership is terrible. Julian Bond and Benjamin Jealous have done the black community no favors during their tenure and have given the Democrats way too much credibility, given their failure to deal with school choice, etc.

I agree, the NAACP convention is like a hornet’s nest. But if more GOP candidates went there and punched back at the false caricatures of the LEFT, eventually the NAACP leadership will start being called out by the rank and file. Over the short term the difference, may be very minimal on the margins, but in time leaders like Allen West may emerge on the leadership of the NAACP. IIRC, one of the people challenging Ben Jealous for the leadership position last time was a member of the NAACP that is a conservative, his name escapes me. But he attacked Biden when he made the chains comment, and was openly calling out some NAACP members for being drones. I couldn’t find the video. But in essence, the discussion was the GOP has destroyed our cities… blah, blah, blah, and he said something like NAME one major city Atlanta, Memphis, etc. the GOP has power in..

If the leadership of the NAACP, can be cracked from the LEFT, you will see more and more rank and file blacks joining.

Like in Britain, blacks aren’t a 90% Labor bloc. They are far more friendly to the Right. Something along the lines of 60%-40%. LEFT.

I don’t think a lack of outreach from the Republican party to blacks is the problem. Blacks are generally not receptive to Republicans. You can’t do outreach when your target won’t even consider what you have to say. I think the black community is skeptical of the Republican party because after the big racial stuff in the 60s, southern white racists, who were always fiscal conservatives, began to vote Republican. Blacks were wooed to the Democrat party by Johnson in the 60s through his civil rights and Great Society legislation, which promptly drove the southern white racists to the GOP.

No, I am not saying all or even most whites or Republicans are or were racist. But blacks, by virtue of our historical legacy of slavery and discrimination in the United States, are more sensitive to racism. So, the racists from the south who converted from Democrat to Republican (no more a representative sample of all whites than a typical black street thug represents all young black males) poisoned the well for most blacks.

I’ve said it before, and I will say it again — it will take a black Republican presidential nominee with pre-existing ties to the black community to break through, especially if he or she is opposing a white Democrat. Ben Carson is unlikely to win the 2016 Republican nomination, but if he does, he will beat Hillary Clinton or whoever the Democrats nominate, provided the Dem nominee is not black.

The Republican platform is solid. I always get other blacks to agree with me on issues — entitlement reform, abortion, and even gun rights (sometimes) — but that agreement stops with the word Republican. If the black community ever gets past the race thing, at least half of American blacks would consider voting Republican.

They didn’t stop that dude from punching this woman, and no matter how many MRAPS or Stun Grenades they have they aren’t going to stop that dude from punching this woman.

The only thing that will stop that dude is to put a bullet into him, preferably from said woman’s own lawfully owned and carried handgun.

You’re wrong with essentially this entire rant.

In Alabama, the state legislature became republican controlled in 2010, for the first time ever. Do you call this change, which took place 50 years AFTER 1960, prompt?

This points out that the leftists controlled the south far longer than the 60s. You can make sh!t up all day long about them being “fiscal conservatives”, but you have no idea what you’re talking about.

Now, since the south has a much larger percentage of their population that is black, are you really confused as to why democrats stayed in power that long?

Black people vote for democrats for one reason and one reason only. The media and democrats (but I repeat myself) tell them to. They are told constantly how republicans are racist and want to bring back jim crow laws (all of which were enacted and enforced, in the entire country, by democrats EXCLUSIVELY). There is not one shred of evidence that republicans were ever racist, but the big lie works every time it is tried when you have the only megaphone available.

Try again. Or better yet, realize how deep your ignorance runs and get an education somewhere other than the nonpartisan school of black studies.
