    Knockout Attacks Plague the Northeast



    Is anyone else seeing these stories? Fucking sickening if you ask me.

    Three attacks in Philly just yesterday, one yesterday in DC and a slew in NJ and NY.

    I'm not so sure this is really anything different then what's happened over the course of human history. There's always been stupid people doing stupid things.

    Indeed, but this kind of thing was just not part of our culture previously. It has changed immensely over the last several decades. Some for the good, most for the not good.

    Has it REALLY changed? Or, are these types of things just more readily available through YouTube, Facebook, etc?

    This. Violent crime is actually down compared to high points in the late 80s and early 90s. What's up is our awareness thanks to increased media presence online and the 24 hour news cycle.

    I think where these attacks are occurring is the hidden story in all of this.

    You simply don't see this random violence in areas with more liberal carry laws.

    Nor does it really happen in rural areas. Seems to be happening predominately in cities.
