Knockout Game Again: Random and for No Reason, We Are Told

It looks like a black criminal playing the knockout game again, but that won’t be mentioned.

Basically, we’ll never hear of the knockout game again, unless the perpetrator tells authorities that he was racially motivated.

And not even then, because this story from Cleveland, “Ohio gang member accused of punching woman because “she was white” charged with hate crime,” doesn’t mention the knockout game.

So, naturally, reporters assure us that these more recent attacks happened for no reason. As the headline says, “Police search for ‘serial puncher’ after four victims say they were randomly punched for no reason.

WFLA reports, “Police search for man who randomly attacked shoppers in Polk Co.

According to the Haines City Police Department, Johnson walked into a CVS Pharmacy in Haines City on Thursday, battered two customers and left the scene.

Police believe Johnson is responsible for an attack on two employees at a Walmart in Lake Wales, which appeared to be random and unprovoked.

If a white man went around punching non-whites, would journalists say it was “random”? And would the story stay local?
