Re: Knock out game?training

We had that discussion over here in Germany some years ago:
The "game" was said to be played in the UK: Two or three teenagers atacking a random victim. Another one shooting it with his cellphone. Interestingly they seemed to seek out victims who didn't fit to the usual "predator-prey system". So the behaviour you learn to not be victimized didn't help here. It was called "happy slapping". Some of the vids where uploaded to youtube.
Anyway. There was a biiiiiig discussion in the newspapers about that. But the phenomenon never reached us. (Good the UK is an isle...) But. Some weeks later the phenomenon had also left the UK. (maybe by boat, ... maybe aiming for the US ... )
