St. Louis Mayor First One on Scene After “Youth” Mob Nearly Beats Man to Death in ‘Knock Out Game’ (Video)

St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay was the first person on the scene on Monday after a local man was beat unconscious by a mob of teens. The mayor believes this was another incident of the “knock out” game.

The victim’s jaw was shattered and wired shut. There were several broken bones on his face.
The thugs beat the victim with bricks on a busy St. Louis street.

The local media would not release the race of the teens but the “knock out game” is popular with black youth mobs in St. Louis.
KSDK reported:

St. Louis police are looking for a group of 10 to 15 people who brutally beat a 51-year-old man.

It happened near the public library in the 3300 block of South Grand around 11:40 p.m. on October 21.

St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay was the first person to spot the victim. He tells NewsChannel 5 he was driving along Grand with his security officer when they saw the crowd from a distance.

Slay says when they got closer the crowd ran off, leaving the bloody and unconscious victim and a friend.

The friend said he and the victim were walking from a nearby grocery store when the man was punched in the face and knocked out cold for no reason.

Because the victim wasn’t robbed, Mayor Slay believes this was another case of the “knockout game,” a game played by teenagers where they attack unsuspecting victims with the goal of knocking that person unconscious.

It’s been an on-going problem in St. Louis and actually lead to a death earlier this year.

The mayor called the attackers “thugs” and warned they won’t be allowed to rule the streets.

In April an elderly man was attacked by a mob of black youths playing “the knock out game” while walking home from the grocery store with his wife. They killed him.

In June a group of black youths beat a gay man bloody playing “the knock out game.”

In August black teen mobs targeted St. Louis cyclists in the knock out game.

In September, a 73-year-old man was knocked unconscious just outside of Tower Grove Park.

    Shoot to kill these scum. Time for vigilante justic.

    And the mayor should be the first on the scene.

    This crap will kill a city quicker than public housing.

  • Sarge

    Let the citizens arm, and thusly, defend themselves!

    One word only: animals; mindless, dumb animals. Find the thugs, arrest them and charge their parents.

    Prisons are already full of them…why pay taxes to feed these f#$ks? They need to be removed from the public payroll…permanently.

    Jim, unfortunately, St. Louis is now suffering from the cancer of having Democrats lead it for generations. I remember when South Grand was a clean, most German area where kids were safe playing out on the sidewalks. It wasn’t fancy, even back then, but it was safe and neighbors sat on on the front steps in the summer visiting with each other.

    I grew up at Landsdowne and Wherry. Ted Drews, Steak N’ Shake, great Italian and German bakeries where you could buy fresh bread and gooey butter cakes. Taking the bus to go watch the Cardinals, and making all the parish festivals every year. What a wonderful place to grow up.

    The last time I was back, I promised I would never return. The city was dirty, I had to drive through terrible neighborhoods just to eat at Rigassi’s on the Hill. The population of St. Louis had decreased from when I was a kid, and it just reminded me of Detroit.

    This is the part where some Liberal comes in and comments that skin color has nothing to do with it and all races have groups of thugs but fails to provide many links to illustrate the case.

    Visited St Louis recently. Never again.

    The spirit of these youngsters is admirable. Why, many a German progressive of yesteryear would recall the joyful tirades of playful games like “Smash the Jew’s Window” or “Burn Books that Disagree with Progressive Theology” and so on. American progressives had their games too, like “Sterilize the Single Black Breeder and the Retards” and “Burn a Cross on the Black’s Lawn.” All good fun for a tan-shirted progressive.

    The uniform of the contemporary OWS storm detachments is of course much more diverse these days; instead of the monochromatic tan shirts and black boots, piercings, slogan-enriched t-shirts and tattoos are in fashion. But you can always spot a true progressive by their spirited games that advance the cause of the people’s movement!

    You know the ads for Visit some city or the other.

    New Ad. Come see St. Louis entertainment, great dining, museums and knock outs are free.

  • Libs Suck

    They’re just young black youths beating up on old white people, why is everyone all upset? They’re just having fun.

  • befuddled

    In South Korea, they actually have raiding parties to prevent kids from studying too much.While in St. Louis,mobs of kids are participating in the “knockout game”.

    And we wonder why we can’t complete in the global market place.

    re: “The mayor called the attackers “thugs” and warned they won’t be allowed to rule the streets.”

    Ooooo…. Mayor, you called them a name! How impressive. They’re frightened now; O Boy, they’re probably peeing their panties!

  • Uncle Monkey

    Yes, I’d like to play the ever popular “bullet in the brain” game with these kids.

    It works like this – I spend a couple of bucks on a .44 mag bullet, Federal Ammunition wins, the kids lose.

    Whee fun!

    Infrastructure. Obama’s fav word to say. Take some of the money that you have wasted on green and help these bored out of their mind youth do something constructive with their life.

    Occupiers need to clean up their filthy mess, too. Obama is the most hypocritical and pathetic liars. Obviously, MO is obsessed with fat. What about the blacks who have been abused and ignored by their parent. No parents as many of the baby daddies leave the wife and kids to fend for themselves. Take some of that garden money and use it for something good. The black and white kids who have been abandoned by their parents.

    These gutless pricks are never alone… gotta have witnesses for the knockout game.

    No one should use these punks’ terminology “knockout game”. There is no game. Call it what it is. Mindless violence, viscious mob attacks, racist brutality. Call them what they are. Roving thugs, savage criminals. Don’t let them think for a minute that anyone thinks they are kids playing games. Let them know without a doubt they are wanted criminals, and will be treated like anyone guilty of violent assault. I’m talking to you, Post-Dispatch, and to the national media. It’s no game, and these thugs will be getting serious adult punishment. That’s what the message should be, if you want to discourage these idle dropouts from killing people and throwing their lives away.

    These kids are the future? The occupiers are the future? I would love to see some youth that love God and Country start something. Not what the occupiers or the knock out kids are doing.

    But start something greater then themselves. Organize For America Future and for The Best for America. Just a thought. The youth need to recognize what our Nation’s goal are and drown the hate out once and for all.

    If someone from your household commits a violent crime, no more public benefits for the household (except for SS and Medicare). Out of public housing, no food stamps, no welfare, no Medicaid, no federal student loans, no nothing. Enforce it strictly, and see how fast the problem is resolved.
