    Fun for thugs

    Can't remember which forum I saw it on, but there was a warning from LEO about a new fad mainly in urban areas where young thugs are targeting the elderly for surprise attacks on the street. They jump, mug and beat their victims just for fun and then brag on the social networks to gain street cred. He used a term to describe these incidents that I can't remember. Anyone recall the term for this new passtime? Thanks.

    If it was “Knockout game” there was a previous thread discussing it here.

    Yet another to CC

    The Knockout Game, something to be aware of.

    A twist I heard about ten years ago is the advanced version when the knockout team wades into a group standing around the front of a bar / grill, shop, or bus stop and, once in position, performs a synchronized hand and feet attack. It's not just walking encounters. SA always.

    While i admit I don't understand most things about thug culture, i just can't imagine getting credit from you peers for a sneak attack on an elderly person. The bikers I used to run with would stomp you for such a cowardly act.
