Groups Of Teens In Brooklyn Are Playing A Game Called 'Knock Out The Jew'

 

The NYPD is currently looking into a series of attacks on Jews in Crown Heights, New York after one assault last Wednesday left a 12-year-old Jewish boy injured after being sucker punched to the ground by a group of teenagers.

 

This is the most recent of 8 similar attacks that have taken place in the area since September, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly confirmed to CBS news. One surveillance tape shows a 19-year-old Jewish man thrown to the ground after he was issued one unsuspected blow by a group of black teenagers.

 

Crown Heights is a predominantly Orthodox Jewish and African American community, and has made headlines before during the Crown Heights Riot of the early 1990s.

 

CBS says the victims of these recent crimes were targets for teens playing a "new" game called 'Knockout'. 

"Knock out the Jews, maybe." says a Brooklyn rabbi, Yaacov Behrman.

 

The premise of Knockout is pretty self-explanatory: dare someone to sucker punch an unsuspecting, innocent person for no reason at all. Try to take them out with one shot. Then, walk away.

 

Because these particular assaults all involve anti-Semitic undertones (there have also been cases of graffiti'd swastikas in the same area), these particular attacks are being investigated by the NYPD’s Hate Crimes Task Force. 

But Knockout isn't a new game.

In September, three teenagers were charged with the murder of a homeless man in Hoboken, New Jersey.

 

The boys, two 13-year-olds and a 14-year-old, allegedly followed Ralph Erick Santiago on a street in Hoboken before one teen threw a punch at the victim’s head, causing Santiago to fall back into an iron fence, lodging his neck between two bars, and eventually dying, The Daily News had reported.

In October of 2012, James Addlespurger, a high school teacher in Pittsburgh, was a victim, and his startling attack by a 15-year-old was caught on surveillance camera, as shown in the video below. Addlespurger survived his attack.

 

"One time they even got the UPS guy," a man in Jersey City says in the video below.

 

 

 

What's the point?

Business Insider spoke to a New Yorker named Ike who says Knockout has been around for awhile. 

 

"I remember it from when I was 11," the 27-year-old told us, "and I've seen white kids do it, black kids, Spanish kids."

Ike says the game surfaces when kids get restless and fearless in big groups. 

 

"A friend of mine was the victim of it years ago. He was walking in Washington Heights and a group of kids just came up to him and one punched him in the face and ran off. They broke bones in his face."

 

He remembers his friend said the teenagers laughed as they ran off, similar to reports in the news over the recent days and months.

"These were bored kids," Ike says.

 

As for Knockout appearing back in the news over the last few days, Ike says even though it isn't a new game, it's deserving of the attention.

 

"I'm sure there are some sick people who are like 'let's knock out the first Jewish person we see [walking] alone,'" Ike explains. "But they're also like "let's knock out the first person we see alone, whoever they are". It's not only a rise in anti-semitism...it's a rise in senseless violence period."

The game isn't called "knockout the jew" just knockout.  That rabbi said what he said to draw a more direct link between the incidents.  There's no doubt that occasionally orthodox Jewish males are targeted, but considering my friend who got caught in The Heights was Dominican and I've had dudes try to run (sneak) up on me in Crown Heights and just reacted too quickly, I don't think it's specifically an anti-semitism thing.

 

this is the cbs video from the first youtube that's down http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2013/11/12/brooklyn-rabbi-gang-of-teens-playing-disturbing-game-of-knock-out-the-jew/

Protect ya neck,bob and weave is all that can be said good luck.:smoking

I lol at the reaction of people,"RUUUUN! their now playing knockout on other people who don't look like them".The streets are dangerous as if they weren't dangerous before or when they were victimizing people in their own communities before the media decided to report such a story and actually give it a boost and name.The majority wouldn't even have ever knew there was such a thing as this happening.

Now this will fuel some dummy to overreact cause a situation for the sake of defending himself from ''the knockout game'' no matter if it actually happening or not,it's will be based off of just a group of minority teenagers.

I see how this is playing out I just hope it doesn't end ugly for someone who really isn't about playing that game.

There's a thread on this already.

 

And it's incredible how that rabbi just hopped on TV and put his own spin to it. They're doing this to everybody. Not just jews. But dude made up "Knockout the Jew" and now it's a hate crime.

No coincidence that these kind of random attacks are much more prevalent in areas where its nearly impossible for law abiding citizens to own a gun/cc permit.

i don't see how wrong that is of the rabbi to put his own spin on it and turn it into a hate crime.

dude got snuffed and wants to make sure the worst punishment possible comes to that kid.

makes perfect sense.

Why do people dislike Jews so much?

I never understood the jokes on south park, or when my white friends clown the other white friend that's Jewish...

They'll be all "Jew!" And I looked at the Jewish guy like "is that an insult or...?"

Goes back hundreds of years. I think it had something to do with them loaning money in the Middle Ages. Plus the whole jesus thing
