After months of silence regarding the black-on-white violence common to the "knockout" game in states like New York and New Jersey and cities like Chicago and DC, federal authorities have charged a white man with a hate crime for targeting a black victim in the "knockout" game. According to The Washington Times, 27-year old Conrad Alvin Barrett was arrested on December 26th and charged for targeting a 79-year old black man while playing the game. Kenneth Magidson, the U.S. Attorney for the southern district of Texas, said: "Suspected crimes of this nature simply will not be tolerated. Evidence of hate crimes will be vigorously investigate and prosecuted with the assistance of all our partners to the fullest extent of the law."
