12 Yr Old Jew Not Knockout Victim, Attacker Bullied to Attack Him

13 yr old assailant was told he'd "lose respect" if he didn't punch someone in the face, so the 12 yr old he punched was not deemed victim of "Knockout."

Many "knockout" attacks have occurred in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn, home to Chabad-Lubavitch World Headquarters at '770' Eastern Parkway.

On Nov. 6, a 12 year old Crown Heights Jewish boy was punched in the face on the streets of Brooklyn. After striking the victim, the attacker and his accomplice ran off.

On Monday, Nov. 25, the perpetrator of the attack was arrested.  The good news: the 12 year old was not the victim of the “Knockout Game.” The bad news: the 12 year old was punched in the face by a 13 year old black boy who was “bullied into assaulting the victim.”

“His friends told him that if he did not hit someone he would not get any respect, and he was repeatedly made fun of until he did,” according to a local news source.

Don’t you feel better?

The 13 year old was charged with assault and aggravated harassment and sent home with his mother to await trial.

  1. Why did you choose to state the race of the attacker? Do you feel that doing so added to the article?

  2. Why did you choose to state the race of the attacker? Do you feel that doing so added to the article?

  3. Laila Cohen says:

    Mr. Blum: the race of attacker was mentioned, because it is that race perpetrating the attacks….DUH!

  4. Howard Hyman says:

    Goddard College Boy—The RACE of the attacker is JUST AS IMPORTANT as the Race and Religion of the victim. White and Jewish!

    This is a HATE CRIME by Blacks on Jews.

    Stop protecting the GUILTY maggots!

  5. Howard Hyman says:

    Essentially, the the little criminal MAGGOT is claiming that someone MADE HIM DO IT. That is why he ran away!

    Next time, one of these MAGGOTS will attack a victim who is a legal CONCEALED CARRY holder. I want these MAGGOTS removed from Earth!

  6. Howard Hyman says:

    One of these savages was NOT Black—he was a muslim and an arab!

  7. Laila Cohen says:

    seems the gene pool of humans has two groups that need to F off.

  8. … and the reason that this nice black boy was bullied is the slavory of his ancestors, who were sold to slavory by arabs. But, the arabs became slave dealers because of occupation of the West Bank in 1967! So, that was the 12 year old Jewish boy's fault!:)

  9. Robbie Goldstein says:

    All Jews should be taking self defense/martial arts and learn to know someone's intentions from 20 feet away. You learn to judge body distances, become aware of where people are, and what they are doing ( or about to do ) in relation to your own body. You can stop an attack, and in most cases, cause your attacker to think twice before ever attempting such things again.

  10. Robbie Goldstein says:

    …. And no one is gonna convince me that he did not know, and was very happy that he was attacking a Jew.

  11. Jess Artz says:

    He had a choice…made the wrong one!!!!!

  12. Alan Kardon says:

    Yes it was important. Have you seen any of "Knockout" attacks on their own kind. Why did he have to attack an innocent bystander? Why didn't he hit one of the people who wanted him to "Get respect". I would respect him much more.

  13. Alan Kardon So this "knockout" is worse than any other "knockout?" Why?

  14. It may be important to know the race of the attackers to shed light on a growing problem in America. The African-American community is lacking in father-figures to teach children to respect other people, including people who look different. When kids have no authority figure in their lives, their peer group becomes the authority. When that peer group is mostly males in their teens and twenties, they're going to act more violently than other groups because males in that age group have yet to develop the frontal cortex, which is key in deciding not to act on certain impulses. This is why uncle sam makes a horrible dad…he may put food on the table, but he doesn't teach the children any manners.

  15. Alan Kardon says:

    Michael D Blum No knockout is any better or worse. They are all bad. I do not get your point?

  16. Alan Kardon Are they all done by black kids? This phenomenon has not happened (yet?) in Seattle.

  17. Ms. Cohen, if ALL the attacks are done by black kids, and everybody knows it, why mention the race of the attackers. Since you already knew it and all. What am I missing?

  18. Laila Cohen says:

    Michael D Blum you just love to argue..and I imagine they are mentioning the race for people not aware of what is going on ..again DUH. they are trying to shed light on what is going on in the world…and Howard Hyman is also correct.one was a Muslim….so the point is this: blacks and arabs are attacking Jews….THAT is the point. Maybe the Jews will now stop making the big feast in Crown Heights to pacify the blacks…Robbie is correct. Jews need to learn self defence and USE IT.

  19. Alan Kardon says:

    Michael D Blum I do not know if all are done by "Black Kids". I do know that the ones I see and hear about are done by "Black Kids". Glad to hear that Seattle has not seen this problem.

  20. Howard Hyman – I am sorry you equate asking question about a phenomena about which I am completely unfamiliar with protecting maggots. It seems that further dialogue between us would be a futile act. Happy Channukah.

  21. Ariella Butler says:

    Maybe your missing that is her page, not yours.

    Bring it on, shvatsas !
