    It'll be interesting to see how this one pans out. Funny how the story mentions that she's a "member of her neighborhood watch." On a side note, I'm personally disgusted by this "game." And if it were up to me, this lady would get off scot-free.

    Yikes, you're right. I guess that's what I get for posting links to less-than-credible sites.

    This is not a new game, from 1992: http://news.google.com/newspapers?id=2pZGAAAAIBAJ&sjid=lvgMAAAAIBAJ&pg=6167%2C4733376&dq=violent+knockout+game&hl=en

    Wow. Shocker. The "knockout game" event that made headlines? It never happened.

    "An important clarification: the game definitely exists, and has been around for at least a couple of years. I'm not claiming the game doesn't exist. But the idea that it's reached epidemic levels, or that it's only being played by young black people, is a fallacy. As Alan Noble convincingly writes, "Analyzing data is not as simple as watching some YouTube videos and Googling 'knockout game.'" And when it comes to the knockout game's supposed popularity, the data is almost entirely anecdotal:"

    There are "terrifying new trend" stories about "the Knockout game" that date back to 1992.

    It's about 99% bullshit.
