Al Sharpton calls knockout game attacks ‘Insane Thuggery’

Where is Al Sharpton?  Well, hold on to your seats folks, Al Sharpton has come out against knockout attacks.   Kind of like coming out against hunger in our view, but it is more than what folks expected.

Sharpton  said the “knockout” attacks were “insane thuggery” and that attempting to knockout a stranger was far from being a game

Al SharptonRev. Al Sharpton condemned “knockout” attacks Saturday but stopped short of calling for marches against the brutal hate crimes.
“This kind of behavior is deplorable and must be condemned by all us,” he said at his weekly National Action Network meeting in Harlem. “We would not be silent if it was the other way around. We cannot be silent or in any way reluctant to confront it when it is coming from our own community.”

On Monday, Sharpton and other leaders plan to discuss a “next move.”

“Kids are randomly knocking out people [from] another race — some specifically going at Jewish people,” he said. “This kind of insane thuggery — there is nothing cute about that. There is no game play about knocking somebody out, and it is not a game. It is an assault and is bias, and it is wrong.”

Critics of Sharpton suggested he could do more, but acknowledged his words as a “good start.”
