    Knockout Game

    Wtf is going on with kids these days? I'm not even old enough to be saying that, but this is just sick. I saw it awhile ago on the east coast, never thought I'd hear about it on the ISU campus.

    It's amazing how much different the kids are today compared to just 15-20 years ago. This is just one of many examples.

    I like how they recommended utilizing the help van. I remember changing a tire in the S lots in a blizzard. The "help" van drove by twice despite me flagging him down. I double Melvin Ejimed him the third time

    Re: Knockout Game

    The person who attacks is lucky the victim isn't pulling a weapon out. A lot of people have permits to carry now a days.

    ***edit, and I'm not condoning or advocating using the weapon, just that the situation could escalate if someone is attacked. Knockout isn't a game.

    I have a lot of martial arts experience. This video offers some excellent advice.

    Re: Knockout Game

    Some of the youth nowadays are just scary. This game makes me think of those kids in Oklahoma that were shooting people because they were bored.

    Nothing has changed. Back in my day we just called it stomping the **** out of someone. I'm sure if the internet had been bigger and the media had as much influence as they do now they would have came up with a "cool, buzzworthy, catchphrasey" name for it.

    It's much more "shocking" when it's labelled as a "game" by the media. Of course that just leads to teh perpetuation of the activities and gives the story more cycles, which the media loves.

    People get their *** kicked every day for no reason. There are psychos everywhere. And it will continue forever.


    Rhoads out!

    According to the Dept of Justice, most "juvenile" crimes are trending down in the last 15-20 years.
