Baltimore’s Mayor Outraged at Injuries Stemming From “Knockout Game”

The ‘knockout game’ hasn’t been in the media much lately, but the threαt is still real in Rawlings-Blake BaltimoreBaltimore according to the city’s mayor. CBS DC reports that several people were injured in recent knockout game incidents, compelling Baltimore’s mayor to take a strong stand against the assαults.

Baltimore City Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake was so outraged at the recent incidents that she decided to go on  local news to speak out against the game.

“They don’t understand the consequences,” Rawlings-Blake scolded. “If you knock someone out, you could think its a joke and you’ll hυrt somebody – that person could die. And then your life is ruined for some stupidity that you and your friends think is fun. It’s just not worth it.”

She also advised adults in the city to pay more attention to young people in their community.

The knockout game reportedly stems from people trying to knock out a person with a single pυnch. Around the country, there have only been scant reports of people playing the game, but once the media got hold of it, the assaυlts made national news.

Rawlings-Blake is not the only black city leader to speak out against the knockout game. In December of last year, New York Councilwoman Laurie Cumbo published an open letter Tuesday alleging that “many of her black constituents told her they feel threatened by the growth of the neighborhood’s Jewish community — and she fears the tension could be spiking the recent violence.”

She concluded: “I respect and appreciate the Jewish community’s family values and unity that has led to strong political, economic and cultural gains. While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success.”
