Some of you have probably see something about the Knockout Game. It is an unprovoked attack against an unsuspecting victim, often from behind. A quick Google search will reveal lots of examples, but here is a link to an artical CNN did the other day. http://www.cnn.com/2013/11/22/justice/knockout-game-teen-assaults/
My question about this is what could the victims have done differently? In most cases that I’ve seen the victim is in a public place, usually alone, but there is a number of other people present. One example is the person who was hit as he used a busy crosswalk.
Does anyone practice awareness drills that would have been effective in this situation?
