Knock-Out Game Case Dismissed After Witness Skips Court – 7 Teens Celebrate Outside Court (Video)

Seven St. Louis teens are now free after viciously beating a local man in the knock-out game. A key witness did not show up for court on Wednesday.
KMOV reported:

Seven teens all between the ages of 12 and 14 are now free after they were accused of beating a 52-year-old man as part of the so-called “knock-out game.”

The attack happened on October 21st, leaving Matt Quain with a broken jaw, several stitches and a black eye.

Prosecutors had no choice but to drop the case when the key witness, a 13-year-old girl, failed to show up for court Monday.

St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay was the first person on the scene in late October after a local man was beat unconscious by the teen mob.

    If your state allows concealed handgun carry and you haven’t gotten your permit, why not? This situation highlights why you can’t depend on the police for protection.

    I’m sure the parents of the 13 year old witness knew what would happen to her if she testified against the group of brutal thugs. Their friends would take care of her for sure!

    It’s an Obama world. I guess they taught the perps a lesson. Get caught you better take care of any witnesses before you head to court. Sounds like their plan worked. Black Panther thug apprentices, I guess.

    Gosh, what great fun. What’s next, kids? Maybe go to the VA Home? Naw, those guys might fight back. How about the local Senior Center? Easy pickings there.

    Lowlife. Scumbag. Punks.

    that used to be considered the action of cowards now it’s something to pat yourself on the back about? 7 vs 1 and a sneak attack i’m sure.

    Channeling Bernard Goetz anyone?

    This has nothing to do with Obama or a perceived Obama World. This is how the justice system works. You need evidence and witnesses. If you don’t have them, you don’t have a case. Simple as that.

    And by the way, stuff like that happens in the EU on a daily basis. Without Obama. It has happened here long before Obama was even in office. It’s not Obama’s fault. It’s the fault of the parents.

    I have to agree with Andreas K. This has nothing to do with Obama. No witnesses or other evidence, no case. And frankly, I wouldn’t let my 13 year old daughter go to court over something like this either unless we were guaranteed the witness protection program. That girl’s life wouldn’t be worth a plug nickel – if something untoward hasn’t already happened to her.

    You are correct Andreas Obama isn’t the problem in this story, nor the cause, he is as much a symptom of the disease. Yes it takes evidence and in a case that didn’t threaten to bring down so much political correctness anger or reinforce a stereotype law enforcement would have been all over collecting evidence for a conviction. Out of seven perps not one of them had a weak spot to turn on the others? My bet it wasn’t even attempted and the system from the cop who took the report to the prosecutor sighed in relief that a way out of the mess presented itself.

    With more social engineering like this we will see a new reaction appear and if you think things are ugly now.

    Are there any boondock saints in St Louis? Let’s hope so.

  • oldguy

    This is one of the reasons why Obama will lose. Actions like this will provide the guilt ridden cover to vote against him, or at least to stay home on election day.

    I live in a middle-class, predominantly white community here in MA. Tshirts are printed with the purpose of intimidating witnesses to gang crimes. They actually sit in the courtroom during the trial. And they appear, freely, in my town. Liberal areas seem to tolerate portions of our society that they consider underprivileged, great freedoms….to the detriment of a civilized society.

    When Justice is thwarted the only remedy is a bullet to the brain.

    Wise up buddy, get a gun and use it!

    I live in the neighborhood in which these savages are roaming. The man was lynched across from my church. Yes—the perps are black. I have asked that the mayor and St Louis Pd to allow white people to openly carry fire arms since it is open season on white people in the city, but have not (shocker) recieved a response. I also asked it the Justice department was going to look into this matter–and —-No response. I CCW—even taking out the trash.

    Oh for pity’s sake! Yes, Obama and Eric Holder are responsible for a huge number of bad things, but this crime is not one of them. As far as bringing the EU to America, that has been happening at a snail’s pace for quite some few years now. You’re just getting around to noticing.
