So all of a sudden the police think this might have been someone playing "knock out game". Funny, there was a letter to the editor suggesting this very thing the other day. I hope it didn't take a letter to the editor for the police to figure this out.

It is a shame that the police feel that they have to handle everything themselves. Here is a chance to alert the city of a possible dangerous area to walk and/or ask if anybody saw anything on that date and time frame. After all, we are all in this together.

"I hope it didn't take a letter to the editor for the police to figure this out."

Regardless of who figured out what, the important thing is to be aware that these things do not happen in a bubble. Do not let your guard down thinking these sort of things cannot happen in your neighborhood. I am glad that the police have chosen to alert the public on what that attack might have been.

It is not a "game", It is an assualt, plain and simple and should be treated that way. Are these people who do this kind of thing even to be considered human? Not in my book. Prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law,and then put them in a cage where they belong and dont let them out any time soon, that is what needs to happen.

In the original article regarding this incident; S-G > Police, Fire & Court > Nov. 23 > Alleged attempted robbery in city ... it was stated "Police still were looking for three males Friday evening who apparently attempted to rob a person on Isabella and Rose streets around 9 p.m., city police said". I am still curious, since at that point in time three men were observed, why no description of the men was given and why the original story has changed. In today's article Chief Foresman did say the man was hit very hard. Maybe that's why the story seems to have changed?

Google search "Beat whitey night" and what occurred at the Iowa and Wisconsin state fairs. Where was the outrage and media blitz following these incidents? Any comments from Obama? Holder? Sharpton? Jackson?

If this turns out to be the "Knock Out" game, this game is considered a hate crime and the city should report this to the FBI and stop it now before this gets out of hand just like everything else that goes on in this town.

This "game" is called a assult which will get these kids shot by a legal concealed carry owner. No one is gonna assume a assult is anything less than a deadly attack attempt.

First post fromtheport just pricless. I'm just surprised Foresman had any comments since his MO is concealing and lying.

I think I`m going to alert others that while driving, be on the lookout for suspicious activities. There`s going to be*****to pay if I see someone knocked down. Like Charles Bronson said when he was bent over his assailant, "Do you believe in Jesus he said to the man...and when the man replied yes Charles B. told him, "good, cause you`re going to meet him" ! lol
