(Editor’s note: Colin Flaherty has done more reporting than any other journalist on what appears to be a nationwide trend of skyrocketing black-on-white crime, violence and abuse. WND features these reports to counterbalance the virtual blackout by the rest of the media due to their concerns that reporting such incidents would be inflammatory or even racist. WND considers it racist not to report racial abuse solely because of the skin color of the perpetrators or victims.) EDITOR’S NOTE: The links and video in the following report may contain offensive language.
To notice racial violence is to be a racist, so say the editors at newspapers across the country.
This pattern of black mob violence includes more than 100 examples of the Knockout Game.
Readers of WND are familiar with the rules: Start with a mob of black people. Find a white person. Or “gay” or Asian or woman or, in the rare case, even another black person. Punch them until your arms and legs get tired. Or they are knocked out. Or worse.
Just make sure they are defenseless. A single man in a “gay” neighborhood of New Orleans stumbling home from a bar at 5 a.m. meets that criteria perfectly.
Not everyone can play.
This New Orleans crowd was about to start the Knockout Game with someone else an hour before. But when that person acted as if they had a weapon, the Game was over before it began.
The mob found an easier target — a person who now awaits reconstructive surgery to repair the broken bones in his face.
In St. Louis, the game is so popular that even the mayor came across a mob and its victim. St. Louis by itself is said to be home to more than 100 cases of the Knockout Game.
One of the mob who was arrested in that assault was recently killed trying to break into a St. Louis-area home.
In New London, Connecticut, the six killers of Matthew Chew were sentenced to prison last week after confessing to beating and stabbing him to death. They did it because they were bored. Their friends bragged about it on their Facebook pages.
Classic Knockout Game.
Chicago, New York, Wilmington, North Carolina, and other cities have seen lethal versions of the Knockout Game.
In Springfield, Missouri, Trevor Godfrey almost died after an encounter with the Knockout Game outside his campus apartment. When his mom investigated the crime, she found police unwilling to talk about it. And she also found other victims.
Students at the University of Illinois also experienced a similar rash of racial violence. Except there it went by a different name: Polar Bear Hunting. Same rules applied. After dozens of attacks, several black people were arrested and sent to prison.
Late last year, one them was back, hunting more Polar Bears.
