St. Louis Youths Play “Knock Out” Game With Elderly Vietnamese Man… Kill Him

72-year-old Hoang Nguyen and his wife Yen went shopping at a Vietnamese market in the 3900 block of South Grand last Saturday morning just as they did every weekend. It was their last trip to the market. After leaving the store the couple was attacked by four black youths playing “knock out.” The thugs killed Nguyen in an alley.

FOX 2 has video of the couple’s last trip to the store. That is Nyuyen in the white hat shaking hands with a friend.

This was the first of several “knock-out” attacks in the city of St. Louis.
KSDK reported:

The funeral for 72-year-old Hoang Nguyen was held at Resurrection of Our Lord Catholic Church in South City Thursday morning. Police say the Vietnamese immigrant is the victim of a deadly game called the ‘Knock Out’ game. City leaders are trying to get the word out.

St. Louis police and Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce are tweeting about it, they’re talking to community leaders about it, and city leaders are finding out this Knock Out game, where you attack and try to knock out someone vulnerable, may be happening more than they realized.

Hoang Nguyen’s death followed an incomprehensible crime in an alley near Spring and Chippewa. According to court documents, Nguyen was punched in his head, causing him to fall to the ground and smack his head against the pavement, allegedly by this man, 18-year-old Elex Levell Murphy, who has been charged with first-degree murder. Another male suspect started kicking Nguyen in the rib cage. And it says Murphy admitted it was part of the Knock Out game. Ward Alderwoman Jennifer Florida attended Nguyen’s funeral.

“In the words of Mrs. Nguyen, were ‘father, forgive them, for they know not what they do,'” Florida said.

Alex Murphy was charged with first degree murder for killing the 72 year-old Hoang Nguyen in a game of Knock Out. (KSDK)

    what a sick world is this now……

    This is disgusting.

    So our once civil society has come to this.

  • BH

    Since when is attempted murder allowed to be called a game? I’d bet that the store owner who was interviewed knows and has experienced much more harassment by thugs than he is willing to say on camera. Those who murdered Mr. Nugyen and hurt his wife, were already
    “wasted” individuals before they did the assault and homicide. They spring from “Cradles of Crack” if you ask me. Please find them, charge them and let justice be done, or they will keep on killing.

    This is Liberalism come to fruition…be on guard…more of this is coming.

  • bigkahuna

    I am betting they will plead innocent and were only reacting to high gas prices, no jobs and Wisc. Gov Walker’s attack on union benefits.

    Hopefully they will go to trial and then play those other fun games..

    .Hide the Salami..of your cellmate and then quickly afterwards….

    Dodge the bullet aimed at your your head at your firing squad party.

    Alex Murphy, is one of Eric Holder “people” nothing will be done, they will push it under the rug.

  • ahem

    I have an idea for a new game: Death Sentence.

    “In the words of Mrs. Nguyen, were ‘father, forgive them, for they know not what they do,’” Florida said.

    Unfortunately, they did know exactly what they were doing, that is the issue here. The constant perpetuation of this species will not end until we stop the cycle of what breeds it. Liberalism and the Nanny state has caused this, just no one wants to do anything about it. Much easier just to bury someone and the story, move on. This will only continue to go on and get worse as the world continues to denigrate into the depths of animal behavior I feel for everyone who will have to live it. God help us all.

    There is no excuse for this protection by the paper of these murderous hooligans….Kinda like hiding Muslim attacks on Christians or Jews or Hindus as “sectarian violence”

  • ahem

    Actually, what this is is the fruits of 50 years of television pumping ever more evil and vicious material into the home. Sex, sex, sex. Serial killers with hearts of gold. Left-wing social propaganda. We’re living in a cesspool, up to our ears in sh*t.

    Ahem #11, amen brother, amen…

  • listingstarboard

    Whenever there is no race identified it is always black. WHenever there is no political affiliation identified they are Democrats. The murderers , if sentenced to jail, will then be able to convert to Islam and become even more of a threat to society. I shudder to think what will happen here if the prisons are breached —

  • Mahdi Al-Dajjal

    And all the defense attorney has to do is: move the trial to black-dominated East St. Louis, stack the jury with poor blacks with a victimhood mentality, and then turn the entire trial into a referendum on race relations between the kind-hearted, do-nothing-wrong, suffering-from-300-years-of-oppression, black race and the keep-to-themselves, closed-minded, hate-black-people, Vietnamese immigrant race, and an acquital on all charges is virtually assured.

    Poor black youths ONLY get sent to prison for murder if the murder victim is a poor black too because the local blacks are out screaming for justice. If the victim is some other race, then the poor misquided black youth killer is the real victim in all this.

    We’ve seen this same scenario play itself out over and over.

  • JohnRalph

    G.W.’s polices drove them to this, these are God fearing black American Christian kids.

  • Bitter Clinger

    The fruits of Obama’s “Department of Just Us” have come home to roost. Nothing will happen to these vile thugs because of their skin color. They may even be The Newer Black Panthers for all we know. Remember “Wilding” in New York’s Central Park? That’s what we’re now seeing all across the country. The ramparts have been breached in our society. The summer will be frightful I fear. God help us.

  • Militant Conservative

    Yet another reason I carry a gun. when are the rest of you going to realize that you are practicing irresponsible behavior by not carrying?? Your endagering yourself and family by relying on the good will of strangers. Get your lazy butts off the couch and learn what it is to be a citizen. The threat is all around you, you’ve just been lucky so far.

    powder is dry

  • Sasja

    One more reason I am always armed. And no, I do not leave my weapon in the car no matter what that little sign reads in the window. You can bet the evildoer is not paying attention to any sign.

  • Mac in NM

    @#7-Those were my 1st thoughts when I read this article. Welcome to Obama’s America. Also, wonder what kind of rap sheet do he be havin’?

  • Noovuss

    I’m shocked to think that Obama’s base would act like this?
    Maybe Obama, Mr. Hoang Nguyen’s widow and the murderer could all sit down and drink a beer at the WH in the spirit of sub-cultural understanding. It was very unfair of Mr. Nguyen to place his head in front of Alex Murphy’s fist.
