NYPD: ‘Knockout’ attacks being investigated as possible hate crimes

It’s a disturbing “game” that’s terrorizing residents in some Brooklyn communities.

“Knockout,” where a random person is targeted and sucker-punched for no reason other than to knock them unconscious, is a growing trend among bored, clearly misguided, teens.

After a string of attacks in predominately Jewish neighborhoods in Brooklyn, the NYPD is investigating the incidences as possible hate crimes.

The most recent attack was caught on surveillance video this past Tuesday in Crown Heights. Ten men spotted a man walking alone, punched him and kept on moving.

Police Commissioner Ray Kelly says the NYPD is working to see if all these attacks are in fact connected.

    These quick meals take care of “I don’t have time to cook, so I will buy a burger and French fries”

    excuse. Fish like salmon, tuna and trout are rich sources of Omega-3

    fats so make sure to include them in your healthy eating plan at least 2-3 times a week.

    Start including fresh fruits and vegetables, everyday.
