Hurray! The game finally made it to Boston. Now we are in the big leagues. I don’t want to violate the rules – here is the link to the news story.

Apparently, a young black male punched two random people in the head on Massachusetts Avenue in Cambridge.

Lucky for him that Concealed Carry Permits are very difficult to obtain in some cities of Massachusetts. And where were the second responders (also known as the Police)? Nowhere!

    So, some guy is walking around Boston, coming up behind people and punching them, and they’ve seen him on camera. Yet they …. don’t provide a description? What good does that do?

    Funny, I was thinking the same thing. No description, no color of the perp. I worked on Mass Av. in North Cambridge close to this store, it is not a bad area at all. If you go up to North Cambridge where my mom grew up they built these in 1971:

    Rindge Towers
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Rindge Towers are an affordable housing development in Cambridge, Massachusetts.[1] Completed in 1971, the three 22-story towers make up a 504-unit[2] apartment complex located next to the Alewife MBTA station at the terminus of the Red Line. The towers are named for Frederick H. Rindge, the philanthropist who helped found Cambridge Rindge and Latin School, Cambridge City Hall, and the Cambridge Public Library.

    The towers are built in the Le Corbusier style, which advocated dense high-rise housing complexes set within parks and open spaces. This style has since fallen out of fashion in favor of mixed-use and mixed-income development.[3] By far the tallest buildings in North Cambridge, the imposing,[4] monolithic towers dominate the skyline[1] in the surrounding area.

    Originally constructed to spur development in the Alewife region of Cambridge, the towers—like many high-rise housing projects of the era—quickly became associated with crime and fell into disrepair.[3] Living conditions at the towers have improved from their nadir in the 1980s.[4] However, the complex is still a focus for law enforcement activity, and in 2008 the Cambridge Police opened a substation at the towers.[5]

    We were told to avoid the “towers”. I not sure, but the “yute” who was doing his video debut for “America’s Idol the Knockout Game” may have come from the ratified air of the magnificent edifices. Cambridge is the strangest of strange, I worked there for several years while the gay mayor who made over $100,000 a year not including benefits lived in subsidized housing. SHHHH, He was a person of color.

    Hope the victims were Harvard profs. Fauxcahontas needs a smack upside the head. If attacks like this continue, Obama’s support in Cambridge might drop to 98%. This is not meant to take away from the outrageousness of the attack.

    I know, AWD – Yojimbo already said the guy is black. But you wouldn’t know that from reading the linked article. My point is just that if someone is going around menacing people, you’re not really helping anyone if you don’t describe the perpetrator. Not just that he’s black, but how tall is he, is he skinny or heavy, approximately what age, and so on, so people can be on the lookout.

    In Massachusetts, a city or town’s police chief is the final word on whether you can get a concealed carry permit. Most of the small town police chiefs are willing to issue them. I’m not sure about Cambridge though I would guess it’s like Boston and Worcester where the police chiefs don’t want law abiding citizens to be able to carry guns with which to protect themselves. Better to leave such things to the pros, the criminals.

    You have an interesting website. I’ve been saying the exact same thing on this blog, in slightly different form. We’re already in a race war here, and whites are losing big time. There are as many mulatto babies being born as white babies, and half white/half black equals black. Our entire society is gearing down to the lowest common denominator, from music to movies to laws to schools. Idiots are being rewarded, and people that work are being crippled and are milking cows. Polar Bear hunting, leg warming, knock out game; just give the race war some catchy names and add on some political correctness, and it’s all cool, right?

    have a long time friend who is a ” southy” of boston. not a particularly big guy by any measurement,
    but….. have seen this guy in action. no knives, no guns, nada. fucking clean your clock with whatever was available, or not. attitude, pure and simple. from my perspective, coming from north jersey, these wannabe gangsta’s wont venture into his hood. and THEY know why. it aint rocket science. action… reaction, physics, but on an emotional, ethnic level. most of these cretiins have no idea what will happen when the other 85% of the population decides enough is enough.

    it reminds me of the story of vlad the impaler. dracul, of wallenstein, ie read transylvania, the guy who was appointed by the pope at the time to stop the invasion of the turks. you all can read about that. earlier on in his ‘career’, he decided to rid the country of all the bad guys, ie robbers, rapists, and their ilk. he proclaimed amnesty for all, had a great hall built to commemorate this holiday. free booze, food, all the accoutrements. big party, and then he had it all closed up, and incinerated everyone inside. crime rate dropped to acceptable levels, and everyone went about their business.

    a cleansing is coming to a neighborhood near yours soon.

    i had been in a serious slumber on the issue of black on white violence all my life until a guy i knew in high school was murdered at yale for no fucking reason whatsoever except for being white. his name is christian prince. look him up. there was a book written about the episode. it was alarming. the guy was a superstar athlete and scholar, a real nice guy from what i remember. but it didn’t sink in until i lived in philly, where i was disabused of all the multi-culti, liberal, “diversity is cool” nonsense i had been taught since i could crawl. i’d really like to go into the nitty gritty here (and maybe i will testify in the future) but suffice to say that i saw and heard things over the course of living in philly for 15 years that would make nancy pelosi’s back hair stand on end. it was a real life kick in the ass.

    two nights before my move north i was in bed sleeping. i was jarred awake by this incredibly loud shriek, a desperate howl, “HELP ME, HELP ME, HELP ME!!” outside my window on the street. it must have been someone from a few blocks down on 7th street in center city philadelphia. you know what i did? roll over and go back to sleep, having been conditioned for it. i’m not proud of that bit of cowardice.

    @ AWD: Thank you very much.

    What our project needs to grow is a huge number of people who can spare just a few minutes and a few mouse clicks on the FIRST of each month.

    If you google “this is the best 5 minute monthly party in town,” that should bring up our STALWARTS page with directions to the party! :)

    But Henry, notice that they are using a kinder term – sucker punch – rather than “knockout game” so that they avoid linking these attacks to the phenomenon.
