Concerning the sadistic"knockout game," only an insecure punk would partake of such cowardice action. They think they're cool, and a real tuffie, but the opposite is true.
Wait until one of them morons cold cock an armed second amendment advocate, we'll see who gets up off the ground.
Is the knockout game a hate crime? I'd say 'yes.' Only God haters would do such mischief. Let the tv babysit the youth, and have violent games teach them, and the streets empower them, and this kind of evil hybrid will continue to replicate.
