New Yorkers Fear the ‘Knockout Game’ Will Hit Them Next

“There is no point to it, it’s crazy.”

A woman who was standing near a victim of the “knockout game” when he was attacked summed up the terrifying “game” that involves punching someone to knock them out and then taking a selfie with your victim. People are chosen at random, so anyone could be a knockout victim.

The twisted fad crops up from time to time among teenagers. In September, a Lower East Side resident was punched while walking her dog, while last year, a Muslim man was attacked outside a mosque and beaten so badly he required surgery to repair broken bones in his face, the New York Post reported.

A CBS News report from 2013 documented seven attacks in New York City alone; “knockout game” attacks documented in multiple cities resulted in fatalities and murder charges for the teens involved.

GLENN: The woman was not moving. She lay unconscious. Her body splayed out on the cold sidewalk, as four young men approached her. They immediately took out their phones.

In the America that I recognize, they took out their phones to call police. But that's not what they did. They needed to take pictures of their latest victim.

Moments earlier, the woman was just walking down the street, when a man rushed up to her. Kicked her in the stomach and sucker punched her in the face. This is a game known as The Knockout Game. And it's happening in our major cities. Last week, people were knocked out in New York City, Brooklyn, and Pittsburgh.

The goal is to come up to a complete stranger in the street and knock them into unconsciousness. It's usually played by groups of roving teenagers with nothing better to do with their lives. Teenagers who lack a future, parental guidance, moral values, which all leads to a lack of basic human decency.

This is what the deterioration of morality looks like in America. And it is going to get worse, unless we as parents start to teach basic morality in our own homes.

CONTROL FREAKS: The Great Reset Overlords Who Will Ru(i)n Your Life

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Dr. Ben Carson's Prescription to Heal America | Ep 98

To the Left, "unity" means "destroy everyone we disagree with." But Dr. Ben Carson has another message: "We are not each other's enemies." As the Biden administration insists America is systemically racist, Dr. Carson's life proves just how far we've come. Despite facing poverty as a child, he became a renowned neurosurgeon, a candidate for president, and former secretary of Housing and Urban Development — one of the only Cabinet members to survive all four years of the Trump administration.

He joins Glenn to review his time in the administration, including as part of the White House's coronavirus task force, and how he discovered "the swamp is deeper and wider than I expected." But above all, he urges Americans to take courage and stand for our freedoms — and previews his newest venture to do just that as founder and chairman of the American Cornerstone Institute: "What version of America do we want?"

Unmasking the OTHER Deadly Pandemic: What's Killing Our Kids

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

IBM's Role in Killing Jews & Lessons for Big Tech | Edwin Black | Ep 97

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril.

He also discusses Disney actress Gina Carano, fired for comparing conservative persecution to the Nazi treatment of the Jews. Our culture is being erased. Our ideals and values are being censored and mocked. Our history is being erased. With another human extermination on the horizon in China, Edwin challenges this with bravery.
