    "Knockout Game" / Situational Awareness.

    Aside from the obvious feelings of disgust watching this, I find myself wondering what use carrying would have been in most of these situations.

    The teacher could have walked the other way or made a point of creating distance, but they'd probably be in his face for being "racist" then too. I guess that's preferable, at least he'd be able to draw.

    The lady later in the video had no chance.

    Nothing new. Like Harry said, you can live in condition clueless if you want, and end up like that teacher on the sidewalk.

    The trick is to be more aware of your vulnerabilities and always have a plan.

    How might it have adjusted those boys attitudes if the teacher had pivoted and slammed his attacker into the wall--knocking him out!

    Stay alert and be aware this stuff has been going on for some time and it makes no difference if its big city or small town it is on the climb and many are not reported.

    Scenario 1: Kid getting slammed originally had no ill intent and guy doing the slamming goes to jail. Not right but is quite plausible.

    Scenario 2: Kid gets slammed and his homies either a) swarm the guy and beat him to a pulp or b) report him to cops (remember they're just good, choir boys out for a walk...) and he goes to jail. It's basically a lose-lose situation unless you're a blameless choir boy out for a walk, "knock-out" an unsuspecting pedestrian and get away because anyone who drops a dime on them is obviously a raaaaaaaaaaaacist!!!!!!

    What's a person to do beside (if you possibly can) avoid, avoid, avoid?

    Stiff, mandatory sentencing. Say 20 years, for this behavior.

    You have to do your best to try to stay out of range if you cant then not be walking with your head down thinking about whats for supper

    The lesson that was reinforced for me was SA, SA, and more SA. Of course there's no guarantee that we'll always be aware and always see it coming, but those unfortunate people in the video never saw it coming at all because they were in Condition White all the way. I've heard about this disgusting activity (I refuse to call it a 'game') for some time and I seem to recall that someone actually was able to either fight back or shoot dead one of these punks.

    If I'm not mistaken, it looks like the punch is more to the temple/side of the head, rather than the jaw. A punch there will most likely take someone out.

    Found an article about a gang picking the 'wrong guy':

    The victims in those vids didn't have a clue between them. Hands anywhere around the interview or surrender position will likely prevent a knockout, and it goes very quickly from there.

    Plenty of use, so long as a person is capable of recognizing brewing situations and taking pains to maintain some distance. If clocked from behind, though, being armed would be about as useful as having a cell phone with 911 on speed dial.

    SA, SA, SA. Can't resist what you can't see coming. Can't keep folks outside "the bubble" if you don't have one. Can't see a situation for what it is with the head buried in the phone or the clouds. Yup.

    And that's why people tolerate assault; fear of the assailant and fear of the "Justice" system.
