Current Events: The Knockout Game

In this video, I discuss a controversial current event: The Knockout Game. In this ‘game’, teenagers viciously prey on innocent people by knocking them out cold. They do this for sport, without provocation and for no other reason than to injure and humiliate. Many people disagree with me, but I think that before we look at the root causes of this kind of outrageous violence, children need to be taught that it’s the wrong thing to do. We’ve played it too soft for too long. What do you think is the appropriate punishment by society for this kind of behavior? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
