    The odds of "they" attacking you, bill, are so infinitely small that you'd be far more likely to be hit by lightening twice, become a liberal and join a hippie commune...all in the same day...before you'd be involved in this type of attack.

    And even less likely that the thug will get away with it with his life, and do it to someone else...

    Star Chamber? Anyone?

    I was writing to risk not rights...so your star chamber reference is something of a straw man.

    The risk of becoming a victim of a knockout game is tiny, and the risk of being robbed at gun point not much higher. Carrying a concealed weapon doesn't necessarily lessen this risk either. But just to be sure, I support the right to conceal carry.

    So far, no one in the media has shown any data that this "game" has been spreading, new, or that it's only perpetrated only by blacks, and the victims are only white

    The story is being a bit sensationalized right now by white wing media

    It's almost happening on a daily basis at this point in the NY/NJ area. I just find your dismissive view pretty strange. Most adults look at this and want to know what the hell is going on. No, not jdr kids boys will be boys.

    Well the article above quotes Ray Kelly and an NJ councilman as being unsure that there is even a real phenomenon at all. What information do you have that they dont?

    Right, it's all a figment of our imagination. None of this has ever happened and has been made up, even the videos. Ray Kelly is in a very political position so what he says to the press is calculated and not necessarily realistic to what is going on behind the scenes. This is particularly true if it's tied to anything that has racial elements.

    Yes, the idea that this is sweeping the NY/NJ area is largely a figment of your imagination. If Ray Kelly ever had the freedom to be "non PC," he has it now, since he's losing his job mostly due to the widely reviled "stop & frisk" policy which targets racial minorities. Seems like if it were a "real" trend he'd have a very good incentive to say so, and to defend that policy.

    Gatorman, you're the one suggesting there is an outbreak of this - the burden of proof is on you. Y

    And again, this is not proof of some crime epidemic. He get's to talk tough about keeping some crime out of his city that obviously hasn't happened in his city.

    You obviously didn't read the article because it did happen in his city.

    You're right. I only read the first half of the article in which incidents were conspicuously absent. Mea Culpa

    I still want to see real data before I believe this is something out of the ordinary.

    I am absolutely dismissive of the hype that this is a new or a growing trend because there's no evidence that it's growing (but evidence that it is not new) only that the media have seized upon some recent cases (not to mention an old incident from St. Louis in 2012 that was captured on video) . However, random acts of violence have been ubiquitous among teens since *forevah* and the trend in aggravated and simple assaults among teens, including those scary black teens, are actually decreasing, not increasing.

    So please, show me hard numbers about it increasing.

    You can play your cute little numbers game jdr, but even the liberal's sweetheart Reverend Al see's the problem. I would venture to say if it was white kids doing this to black folks, you would be all over it like white on rice.

    Playing your cute little academic game is pretty shameful when we can clearly see something is going on here. Somehow we are too stupid and a few liberals here are the real cognitive geniuses that claim this is all smoke and mirrors.

    Yes you got to LOVE the "Paper of Record." If it was several instances of white teenagers assaulting black people, the New York Times would be leading the drumbeat to end this "scourge of hate and racism" faster than you can say "White Hispanic."
