'Open Up Your Eyes' San Diego Man May Be Latest Victim of ‘Knockout’ Game



A San Diego man may be the latest victim of “knockout,” a disturbing new activity spreading across the country involving teens or young adults physically assaulting unsuspecting strangers.

Victoria Hyatt says her husband was attacked in such a way by a stranger in downtown San Diego on Tuesday.

As her husband waited to cross the intersection at 2nd Avenue and Ash Street, Hyatt says a man walked up beside her husband and then, out of nowhere, punched her husband in the face.

“And as soon as he hit him as hard as he could, he just kept walking,” Hyatt told NBC 7 San Diego. “It was like nothing had happened.”

Hyatt says her husband was in complete shock and never saw the attack coming.
“[The man] was dressed like any other young man downtown. He had a nice dress shirt on, a nice pair of slacks,” she said.

When Hyatt learned the assault on her husband may be tied to the fast-spreading “knockout” game, she couldn’t believe it.

“I had never heard of this before,” she said, adding that something like this could happen to anyone.

“It appears to be a relatively new trend,” said San Diego Police Department Officer Jim Johnson.

Officer Johnson says that while police may not be tracking “knockout” incidents locally just yet, but that doesn’t mean it’s not happening.

And he says people need to understand the seriousness of the so-called game.
“First of all, it’s a crime, just the initial act itself,” he explained. “But let’s say that person falls down, hits their head and dies. Then, that means you’re probably going to go to jail for life.”

Hyatt says the attack on her husband should serve as a warning to others to always be on alert.

“Be more aware of who’s around you – what’s going on around you,” she said.
As for those who think this is a game, she has another message:

“Knock it off. Knock it off. You’re hurting a lot of people and it’s not a game. It’s not a game.”

Hyatt says her husband is recovering and luckily, he’s okay.

She says he called police immediately after the attack and officers were able to track down the man who hit him. However, so far, no charges have been filed.

Hardcore Gangs Hit Ohio Suburbs GANGS IN THE ’BURBS
Subversive element creeping beyond Columbus’ borders Last year, Westerville North High School suspended two students who flashed MS-13 hand signs and drew gang insignia during an English-asa-second-language class. MS-13, or Mara Salvatrucha, is a notoriously violent street gang with roots in Los Angeles. It was formed by immigrants from El Salvador.

Gang crime isn’t nearly as serious or common in the suburbs as in some Columbus neighborhoods, but suburban schools and police departments are increasingly on watch.
"It’s not so centralized in the inner city as it used to be," said Pat Brooks, a veteran Columbus police gang unit officer.

Suburban police call Brooks and his colleagues when they suspect gang activity in their jurisdictions.

Most of the crack dealers in Reynoldsburg are gang members who live in Columbus, said Tye Downard, a Reynoldsburg police narcotics detective.

Mocking boys for doing "feminine" things leaves them ill-equipped for life, and makes America a worse place for all

The real boy crisis: 5 ways America tells boys not to be “girly” Clothing. Hair.Products.Sports.Stories.

The ability to feel what others feel has many well-documented benefits, including, for empathetic people, greater psychological and physical health. The real and socially significant positive impact of empathy, however, is the ways in which it affects behavior toward others. People who are empathetic are less aggressive and prone to denigrate others; they are predisposed to act with care and compassion; they have increased egalitarian beliefs and act with less prejudice and stereotype-based hatred. Empathetic behaviors, however, are associated with being female. And weak. The stereotypes that plague our lives teach that the characteristics of empathetic understanding are feminine: listening, sensitivity, quiet consideration and gentleness.  Empathy is feminized and boys learn quickly that what is feminized is, in a man, the source of disgust. While parents, teachers, coaches, grandp…
