Former Boxing Heavyweight Champ Mike Tyson Condemns ‘Knockout’ Attacks … “I Don’t Know Why They Do It … Maybe They’re Just Evil”
Just how bad is the “Knock Out” game, even former heavyweight boxing champ and former Brooklyn thug condemns it …
In an interview on CNN with Piers Morgan, Mike Tyson weighed in on the “knockout game” attacks that have happened in many cities across the US. In his youth, Mike Tyson was hardly considered a good kid growing up in the Bed-Stuy and the Brownsville sections of Brooklyn.
But when asked, even Iron Mike, the “Baddest man on the planet” did not know why these punks did it. Tyson said, “Maybe they’re just evil. They’re are some evil people out there.”
Mike Tyson: “It doesn’t make any sense. It’s a game to some people. I don’t think it’s cool. I saw them hit a woman, from behind… If I was on a robbing spree, I’d done something like that. But this is just for fun. These guys are just, there’s no purpose of doing that. I saw someone hit a woman I’ve never hit a girl in the face. I just can’t imagine. The only thing I can imagine is that being my daughter or my wife … Maybe they’re just evil. They’re some evil people.”
Not again … Another victim of the ‘Knockout’ game …
A 76 year old woman, Yvonne Small, is believed to be the latest victim in New York City of the knockout game. Or should we say, cowardly assault! The elderly woman fell to the ground after being punched by her assailant on Alabama Ave. and Wortman Ave. in East New York about 11:35 a.m. on Friday. Yvonne Small was sent to the hospital for her injuries and released. The suspect is still at large. The NYC Police Department is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying and locating the person caught in this surveillance camera picture below. This coward is wanted in an assault on a 76-year-old woman in the 75 Precinct in Brooklyn.
The irony, or I should say crying shame, is just before Small was attacked, members of the Rev. Al Sharpton group National Action Network rallied in East New York against the attacks.
