I remember seeing a report about this on the news a long, long time ago. Was happening in NYC, iirc. Like 10+ years ago.
Makes me physically ill. And mad.

One thing that keeps coming to mind is: would this be as likely if the public wasn't so afraid to step in. I mean that in a global sense. If folks felt the urge and acted to disrupt such acts we might have less of things like this. We don't act for fear of injury and liability, just to name a couple reasons.

Of course there are other factors that are more direct to the kids and criminals, but add it all up and we are a civilization headed in the wrong direction.

The last couple of summers kids in Chicago regularly got together and went "wolf packing" targeting folks on the streets of highly populated areas. They beat and robbed folks as a pack and got away with it. Folks standing around watching...as long as it wasn't them.

+1. When one of these black kids gets shot by a white guy there will be hell to pay.

No, but paying attention to your surroundings at all times certainly would. I can't count the number of people I see every day walking through a busy parking lot while staring at their phones the entire time, sometimes not even looking up to cross aisles, assuming no car would ever not stop for them. I notice everything and everyone within 300' of me at all times and only stare at my phone while seated or standing still away from any vehicles.

+1 on this. I don't ever let anybody get that close. Knockouts like that can give serious brain concussions.

It's a matter of time before one of the idiots punches the wrong guy (who is packing) and they get shot.

I can't wait!

I just wish the public would jump in and really kick some ass, but I know that would never happen. Just think, if that was posted on the net that the public would fight back and actually kick some asses and not get crap for it. I think they would think twice about hitting random people again.

Psssh, did you see the build of most of those little punks.......go ahead, make my day. Punch me and see if you can knock me out....

I don't punch back, what's more likely is a swift kick to the nuts followed by a sharp knee to the face while you're doubling over.

No Glock needed, just a few years of MACP and Krav Maga

They are calling it "Polar bear " since they are looking for big white guys to try to put to sleep...

That's what the local news said tonight....Anyway..

This story is a few years old though? or maybe it did not make national news the first time...The teacher in Pittsburgh shocking, but as callous as it sounds its not recent news..

More recently, a miscreant cold cocked a 78 year old woman, I'm well aware she did not fit the Polar Bear profile...
