Deadly truth behind ‘Knockout Game’

It’s not just a game anymore; it’s deadly.

The violent and racially charged “Knockout Game” – where participants, often black youths, attack an unsuspecting victim unprovoked, attempting to “knock out” the target – has gained increased national attention. But there is one shocking aspect of the brutal trend that is rarely mentioned: Nationwide, there have been at least six deaths attributed to the Knockout Game.

Sept. 21, 2013 – Syracuse, N.Y.

Knockout game victim James Gifford

A 70-year-old white man named James Gifford was leaving 7-Eleven at 6:00 a.m. Four teens were walking towards the store. As Gifford walked across the parking lot, an 18-year-old black male named Romeo Williams punched Gifford with no provocation, knocking him unconscious.

According to Police Chief Frank Fowler, Williams then walked into the 7-Eleven and “celebrated” the attack.

Gifford’s death is suspected of being a knockout game attack.

But when Gifford fell, he struck his head on the pavement. Four days later, the elderly man died from a brain injury, a diffuse axonal injury, that damaged both the white and gray matter and later caused his heart to stop beating, according to the medical examiner’s Office.
