Actress Rose McGowan claims she witnessed elderly man punched in 'knockout game'

On Twitter today, Actress Rose McGowan tweeted that she witnessed a 65-year-old man "get punched by an evil guy playing that g**damn knockout game."

She gave some details of the attack, and her story was quickly covered by Twitchy. She noted that she witnessed a man "wearing a mask" and riding on a skateboard. She said that she "chased" the thug. When asked about the victim, McGowan replied, "Bleeding from the ear. Called an ambulance for him. His little dog tried to protect."

Being a witness to such senseless brutality must impact a person. The "knockout game" has been diminished in the press.

Robin Abcarian of the LA Times, for example, speculated that Conrad Alvin Barrett engaged in the knockout game as a form of "racial revenge" due to "lazy" journalism.

She wrote this week,

“Could it be because he’d seen so many news stories recently hyping the idea of a “knockout game” trend, and he was looking for a little racial revenge? Many of those stories goosed the lazy narrative that black teens were randomly attacking white people.”

As reported at Liberty Unyielding, in what surely is a misprint, the AARP recently described the knockout game in the following way:

"Some news organizations have reported that the 'game,' in which people of color, often older, are randomly attacked by young 'players,' has become an epidemic. Others, while acknowledging that the game exists, brand the so-called trend an urban legend." [added emphasis]
