Totally made up. Just ask Hoang Nguyen:

Well, you can't because he's dead, but if he were alive, I'm sure he'd agree with you.

South City "knockout game" all a lie


Woman made up 'knockout game' story after boyfriend hit her, St. Louis police say : News
Any irony in the fact that you over generalize in your post about not over generalizing?

"All" conservatives on here bash blacks? Is that insane or a lie?

Iamme73 said the knockout game itself was a hoax. He said "not one perpetrator has said it exists" and I posted video proof of kids talking about the knockout game by name and Mathguy posted more proof.
So it yes the game exists, it's not a myth but it's probably not epidemic either. I haven't heard of any new cases since an Hasidic man was attacked in Brooklyn.

the truth needs to be told and not the first time a woman has falsely accused a man. the police need to get out of the forced confession biz and get into the dna biz. im for more technology in crime fighting and less "police work".
having said all that i am not fond of the new lynch mob behavior, polar bear hunting, gooning and knockout game. its the old southern lynch mob behavior imitated by members of the community. the false accusation discovered does not erase some shameful behavior in the community.

Again violent assaults are happening, but again in some cities hundreds of assaults without guns occur every year. Some of those assaults are random.

But this media narrative that there is a knock out game that was just invented, that is targeting whites or Asians or anyone has not been confirmed by a single police department and again they ask the perpetrators of these assaults and not one has spoken about this game.

This is part of a sad tradition in America as I already detailed.

You don't understand what the word "confirms" means? The police chief in Yale doesn't confirm anything.

Here is the thing, you are head of a police department, media across the nation are reporting on a fake trend about a knock out game, some citizens in your city believe this story that documents real assaults but attributes those assaults to this fake trend, a random assault occurs in your of town, the kind that sadly occurs from time to time, you get asked by those uninformed citizens or your local media about this fake trend that you can't confirm.

The easiest and least offensive thing to say is well there "might be a knock game" so be careful public and we will take action against this potential knockout game.

A confirmation would be very different.


You do know that the defendant claims he didn't say anything about a knock out game.

But a tragic story from 2011 about a trend that is supposedly so widespread and getting worse, but that can't be confirmed by police departments around the nation and many police departments flat out say the game doesn't exist and in which no perpetrators claim exists is a part of a sad tradition in American media.

The assaults are real. The idea that this is a growing trend is fake. Even the term knock out game is very hard to confirm. Again, police departments around the nation can't confirm the game exists and many flat out say it doesn't. The media is taking brutal assaults and crafting a false narrative.
