Baltimore Mayor Speaks Out Against ‘Knockout Game’

LANHAM, Md. (WNEW) – After two recent “knockout games” left several people in Baltimore injured, the city’s mayor has decided to speak out.

WNEW Annapolis Bureau Chief Karen Adams reports that Baltimore City Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake is disgusted by the attacks and says they are not a game.

“They don’t understand the consequences,” Rawlings-Blake said. “If you knock someone out, you could think its a joke and you’ll hurt somebody – that person could die. And then your life is ruined for some stupidity that you and your friends think is fun. It’s just not worth it.”

Rawlings-Blake said Wednesday that adults in the city can help to prevent these crimes by being more involved in the lives of children who may be roaming the streets.

He's kept quiet until now... and he only speaks of the consequences of the perps not empathy for the victims.

you said it 12:44! I guess the point is they do not care about anyone but themselves. They are too stupid to even see about their own consequences much less those of others. I would say they are like animals but animals typically only attack for food or protection. I wouldn't insult animals that way by comparing them to these idiots.
