Knockout Game Returns: Pittsburgh Woman Knocked Out… While Onlookers Take Selfies Instead Of Calling 911
Was it her “white privilege” to be knocked out in this racial attack?
Why isn’t this being called racism or hate crime because that’s precisely what it was? There’s just no other way to look at it.
It’s a breathtaking, horrifying and jaw-dropping moment caught on surveillance video which has Pittsburgh Police investigating and deeply concerned.
“They don’t treat animals like that. They wouldn’t treat a dog that way,” says a Pittsburgh woman whose daughter is seen being beaten and lying unconscious on a sidewalk in the video.
