Media Frenzy Inspired ‘Knockout Game’ Hate Crime Against Elderly Black Man

AFRICANGLOBE - Cable news outlets have come under intense criticism over their coverage of the so-called “Knockout Game,” which some critics say is overhyped, and others claim is ignoring a racial aspect to the crimes. Based on a Justice Department report, that coverage appears to have inspired 27 year-old White male Conrad Alvin Barrett to conduct a brutal media thought experiment. On November 24, Barrett allegedly assaulted a 79 year-old Black man, knocking him to the ground and fracturing his jaw in two places. Videos recovered from Barrett’s cellphone allegedly confirm that he selected his victim based on race, in order to see if the national media would cover the attack.
