Violent ‘knockout game’ a national phenomenon
SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — Knockout-- thegame a group of teenagers in Syracuseallegedly played that resulted in theviolent, random death of a 51-year-old man-- has been a naonalphenomenon for at least a decade.Reports of the game have surfaced instates, such as Massachuses, NewJersey and Illinois. In Missouri, a specialpolice squad and prosecutor wereassigned to bale the problem. Thegame there has been characterized innews reports as “almost contagious,”with endings that mirror the incidentin Syracuse on May 23.That night, a group of teenagersaempng to knock Michael Danielsout with a single punch wound upbeang and stomping him to death,according to police. A 15-year-oldand a 13-year-old have been arrestedand charged with rst-degreemanslaughter, and Syracuse PoliceChief Frank Fowler said more arrestsmay come.The 15-year-old will be prosecuted incriminal court. The 13-year-old will bedealt with during closed proceedingsin Onondaga County Family Court. TheAssociated Press is withholding thenames of the accused because theyare juveniles.Fowler said his department wascurrently invesgang at least fourother instances of people beingaacked in a similar manner.While this appears to be the rst“knockout game” killing in Syracuse,other reports of the “knockout game”phenomenon detail much of the same:The perpetrators are usually teens,the aacks are random, and the goalis to knock a vicm unconscious with asingle punch.If one player doesn’t succeed inknocking out the vicm, others join into nish the job.An editorial in the St. Louis paper in2011 likened the game to behaviordescribed in “A Clockwork Orange.”In 1992, police in Cambridge, Mass.,said three drunken teenagers decidedto play “knockout” and randomlytargeted an MIT student, according tonews reports. Aer the student wasknocked to the ground, a 16-year-oldstabbed the vicm to death as he triedto get up.The defendant in that case, ShonMcHugh, was sentenced as a juvenileto 20 years in prison.In another recent case involving the“knockout game,” 20-year-old ElexMurphy was sentenced to 55 years inprison for the killing of a 72-year-oldman in St. Louis.At a May 3 sentencing, Murphy’slawyer asked a judge to consider thatthe “knockout game” had been playedfor years by countless teens before thedeadly instance involving Murphy’svicm, according to an arcle in the St.Louis Post-Dispatch.Another arcle from the St. Louispaper noted that at least half a dozenpeople in the city had been randomlytargeted and injured by players of thegame. There, the mayor happenedupon a vicm of the “knockout game”and called for juveniles to be triedas adults. A special police squad wasassigned to invesgate the crimes anda prosecutor was designated to handlethe cases. The St. Louis police chief was quoted calling the crimes a “trendof sub-human behavior.”In Syracuse, Mayor Stephanie Minerechoed the senment. At the newsconference Thursday, she saidrecent violence in the city had beengenerated by a “lack of humanity aswe understand it.”
SUNY Pays Ex-Professor $600K
A federal jury has awarded $600,000in back pay to a former collegeprofessor in Central New York aerruling university ocials retaliatedagainst him for complaining aboutdiscriminaon.The U.S. District Court jury in Syracusesided with Jason Zhou (ZOH) in thedispute with the State University of New York Instute of Technology inMarcy, where he worked as a nanceprofessor from 2005 unl he wasdenied reappointment in late 2006.Zhou claimed in a suit against thestate that he had been discriminatedagainst while working at the schoolbecause he’s a nave of China and losthis job because of objecons aboutthe treatment.The verdict was Thursday.A spokeswoman for the state aorneygeneral said Tuesday she couldn’tcomment on a possible appeal.
