Videos of random people getting knocked out by teenagers have sparked a big debate on the internet the past few weeks.

There is a disturbing new "game" in which teenagers target a random person on the street and try to knock them out with one punch. It's silly that the media is even calling this a game. It's an assault and a cowardly attack.

And with the news of the assault going viral, it seems the number of incidents have steadily increased. Teenagers see it online and then want to go out and try it.

But the victims of this random assault are starting to fight back. A teenager in Michigan attempted to tase (a new addition to the "game") a man waiting to pick up his daughter at a bus stop. Little did he know that the man he was attempting to attack was legally carrying a handgun.

The teenager was shot twice and was sentenced to one year in jail.

What do you think about this? Are you afraid to walk around your town?
