Around the nation, people are getting sucker-punched while walking in public. The attackers all vary but they all seem to have the same goal: see if you have the power to knock someone out with one punch. It’s said to have been around for years but only recently has it garnered more attention.

The reward for those who succeed in knocking their victim unconscious is inflated social status among peers and a disturbing sense of pride.

    Good article Erin Herle but you're intectually dishonest claiming that the attackers are "varied". All the attackers in every single reported case of this type of crime have been black. If you were so concerned with being labeled a racist you didn't have to mention the attackers. By describing the attackers as varied you. In effect, label yourself a liar.
