In what’s perhaps the latest version of the “Knockout Game,” a mob of nearly 50 teenagers rushed into a Macon, Ga., Wal-Mart and attacked at least one shopper while destroying merchandise.
The shopper was thrown from his motorized shopping cart and dragged to the floor during the Sunday attack, which caused an estimated $2,000 in damage, according to Bibb County sheriff’s officials.
“The length of the store from front to rear was lined with items which had been shattered, destroyed, turned over and thrown about,” a sheriff’s deputy’s report of the incident stated.
So far only one teenager was arrested, 17-year-old Kharron Nathan Green, after he returned to the store to retrieve his cell phone.
Green, however, declined to identify the other teenagers caught on surveillance cameras.
“Hopefully we can identify the others,” Sheriff David Davis told the Macon Telegraph. “Hopefully it’s not a pattern of behavior.”
The incident brings to mind the racist “knockout game” in which African-American assailants attempted to knock out unsuspecting, non-black victims with a single sucker punch.
The attacks led to severe injuries and several deaths.
“A 70-year-old white man named James Gifford was leaving 7-Eleven at 6:00 a.m.,” World New Daily reported about one such attack. “As Gifford walked across the parking lot, an 18-year-old black male named Romeo Williams punched Gifford with no provocation, knocking him unconscious.”
“But when Gifford fell, he struck his head on the pavement. Four days later, the elderly man died from a brain injury, a diffuse axonal injury, that damaged both the white and gray matter and later caused his heart to stop beating, according to the medical examiner’s office.”
Another man, 46-year-old Hoboken, N.J., resident Ralph Eric Santiago, was found dead with his neck broken after two teenagers stuck his head from behind, causing Santiago to collapse on an iron fence.
As long as the establishment continues to promote racial tension within America, violent racial attacks will continue to happen.
