EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: Brutal "Knockout Game" Incident In Milwaukee FeaturedWritten by Amber Trucke & Josiah Cantrall
The Wisconsin Free has obtained exclusive video from a "pull camera"* used in high violence areas of yet another supposed victim to the so-called “Knockout Game,” also known as “Point ‘em Out, Knock ‘em Out.” The latest incident occurred near the Milwaukee Collegiate Academy at 4030 North 29th St. in Milwaukee.
In the video an unknown male is seen stepping onto the sidewalk from a nearby parking lot on Dec. 2 at around 5p.m. At this point, what looks to be a group of males follows the supposed victim in an almost stalker like fashion. As the supposed victim approaches the corner, one man breaks away from the group, runs up to the victim, punches him from behind and runs. The blow is so violent that the victim tumbles forward and collapses into the street.
After the supposed victim falls to the ground, two more men from the group can be seen running up to him as he lies in the street. Due to poor video quality, it isn’t clear what the men are doing, but after a few seconds a school bus pulls up and they run back to the group. Almost immediately following, the victim stands and can be seen staggering across the street, away from his attackers.
The attack happened in front of bystanders, though none of them can be seen stepping in to help.
The victim appears to be a white male, while the attacker and others in the group appear to be African-American – typical of previous attacks in Milwaukee.
There have been at least two other instances of white males being knocked to the ground by groups of African-American males in Milwaukee. One incident occurred on Oakland and Locust on Milwaukee’s Upper East Side and the other in the Sherman park area.
