Assemblyman Dov Hikind is making a federal case out of the dangerous “Knockout” game played by street toughs.
Hikind, who lives down the street from the site of one of the attacks, is asking President Barack Obama and US Attorney General Eric Holder to address the life-threatening epidemic of “Knockout.”
“It’s getting worse in my community and our neighboring communities, and it’s apparently spreading to many cities,” Hikind said. “People have died. There’s fear in communities. Some people are afraid to leave their homes,” he said.
