What’s worst than violent crimes? Violent crimes used as children’s means of fun. Nowadays the popular game is ’knockout’ and participants choose a random target to hit. ”You knock ‘em out, hit them with a blow and you take their things,” various students told reporters. The point of it? “For the fun of it.”
This activity caused the death of many unknown participants. In September, three New Jersey teens no older than 14-years-old were arrested for the death of a homeless man and in Crown Heights, NY kids target Jewish people specifically for this game. ‘KO’ has spread worldwide as it continues to take more victims for childish amusement. In London, a 16 year-old girl was a target because “she didn’t have a friendly face” her assiliant told a judge.
