Across the country teens and young adults are doing just that – playing the “knockout” game where the object is knocking out an unsuspecting person. This is a random act of violence that teens are playing. A game – better if you are able to knock the person out with one hit. Yeah – real sporting and another reason why things are so wrong in this country. What is going to happen when that poor unsuspecting teen tries to “knockout” a person who fights back – maybe even shoots and kill that teen. Who do you think the outrage will be directed towards?
