I would imagine knowing the right newton pounds of force to knock someone out and actually testing it on a human is good survival mechanism when living in one of Americas poverty hell holes.
After running into an old elementary friend at the 420 Marijuana celebrations and later walking around downtown with his group (all one ethnicity different from me), we rested by a side street. The girls had gone to the bathroom and it was my old friend and his buddy.
Then his buddy taunted me by taking away my eye glasses... and after seeing he couldnt provoke me in anyway he accused me of being a possible narc... soon after he changed his posture, confronted me and landed a pretty hard punch to the side of my head. I stood my ground and was ready to fight back but seeing he stopped his aggressive behavior, his reasoning was to test me if we were to fight (unnamed ethnicity) boys.
So I can see how this group violence and testing of the pack is readying the youth for the enviable confrontations that they'll face in these fuck up societies that we live in.

No, they're not preparing themselves for a looming dystopic future. wtf?

They're kids with shitty, uneducated parents that never taught them how to be proper human beings.

As someone who enjoys marijuana I'd like to say the 4/20 event at the art gallery is basically a fucking loser convention to be avoided AT ALL COSTS

I wouldn't go so far as to say Hollywood is to blame. That's pretty much going with the same logic as violent video games turns kids into killers.

Top 10 Ways Television Influences Peoples Behaviour
1 Violence on television distorts violence as being good and acceptable. American children watch approximately 4 hours of television a day. Regrettably, today’s television programming is violent and influences children’s behavior and views on violence. Many studies have shown children becoming immune and numb to violence, acceptant of violence as a way to resolve problems and wanting to imitate what they observe on television.

thats right. i think the problem is based on the parents and peers; we are influenced primarily by these when we're young, and they define our perception what's normal/abnormal, right/wrong. so shitty parents and shitty friends can fuck kids up. So if you let the tv babysit your kid, live with the consequences. although abit more complex discussion is needed..."monkey see, monkey do" explains it all.

lol i know you're a troll but that is fucking retarded.

people back then were 10000% times more violent without tvs. executions were huge public spectacles, violence was accepted a natural part of society and economics and basically a tool like any other etc

why the fuck are we trying to throw out bullshit explanations for somebodies shitty behavior? if someones a fuckhead, they just are due to circumstances and/or their psychology. no need to psychoanalyze this shit

If you throw a small dog in a room and start beating it with a stick, it too will try to defend itself... even in the states kids as young as 18 are recruited in the military and teens in the ghetto are killing each other for turf and to make money... But this is not the same level of unmoral violence the knockout kids are dishing out.

As I said before, its a combination of things, but the media does have a great hand in it too.

Eazy-E gives us glimpse into the gang environment with this song.

'Knockout game' attack leads to hate crime charge
Associated Press
By MICHAEL GRACZYK 5 hours ago


HOUSTON (AP) — A white Houston-area man was arrested Thursday on federal hate crimes charges for allegedly shooting video of himself sucker-punching a 79-year-old black man in a "knockout game"-style attack.

Conrad Alvin Barrett, 27, made a brief appearance before U.S. Magistrate Judge Frances Stacy, who scheduled a detention hearing for the Katy man on Friday.

According to prosecutors, the attack happened Nov. 24 in Katy, but it wasn't until 12 days later that authorities connected the attack to the cellphone video of it.

Authorities learned of the case because Barrett allegedly showed the video on the night of the attack to an off-duty arson investigator he had just met at a restaurant in nearby Folshear. According to the criminal complaint, Barrett asked the off-duty investigator and the woman with the investigator if they knew about the knockout game. He told them he played earlier that day, then showed them the video, prosecutors allege.

The investigator then flagged down a uniformed officer across the street and led him to Barrett.

The attack video doesn't show Barrett's face, but investigators matched his voice to the voice in the video and the couple at the restaurant told investigators that Barrett was wearing the same shorts and shoes at the person who shot the video.

According to prosecutors, the video shows Barrett approach the victim and ask, "How's it going, man?" A "loud smack" is then heard, the victim falls to the ground, Barrett laughs and says, "Knockout." The assailant then flees in his vehicle.

The victim lost three teeth and needed surgery to repair his jaw, which had been broken in two places. He was hospitalized for more than four days, authorities said.

Investigators retrieved other videos from Barrett's phone, including some in which he uses racial epithets and talks about trying to work up the courage to play the knockout game, the complaint states. In one, Barrett says: "That plan is to see if I were to hit a black person, would this be nationally televised?"

U.S. Attorney Kenneth Magidson said Thursday that such crimes won't be tolerated.

"Evidence of hate crimes will be vigorously investigated and prosecuted with the assistance of all our partners to the fullest extent of the law," Magidson said.

Barrett's attorney, George Parnham, said Barrett has bipolar disorder and has been prescribed heavy medications to treat it. He said Barrett's family "feels horribly sympathetic" for the person who was attacked.

"When you start peeling back the layers of the onion and look at the mindset behind the action you soon realize there's a mental issue," said Parnham, who added that he's trying to gather as much information about Barrett's mental health as possible.

If convicted of the hate crime charge, Barrett could be sentenced to up to 10 years in prison and fined up to $250,000.
