paterson knockout

The 18-year-old thug who was filmed knocking out an elderly man in Paterson, NJ has turned himself in, ABC7NY reports.

Kristian Gonzalez turned himself in to police around noon on Tuesday.

His attorney implied that Gonzalez has a history of mental or emotional problems which led to the vicious incident.

The heartless 16-year-old who laughed while filming the vicious knockout punch -- and uploaded the shocking video to Facebook.com -- turned himself in over the weekend.

The brutal knockout was filmed in December on a Paterson, NJ street. The victim, who was knocked out cold, apparently didn't contact the police. He was treated at a hospital and released.

Police were alerted to the video on Facebook.com and launched a search for the thugs.

Gonzalez, who was 17 when the punch was thrown, was charged with second-degree aggravated assault and endangering an injured person as a juvenile.

The cameraman will be charged as a juvenile.

  • jussaying

    Smh this is crazy. All of this mess for a damn like on social media. These kids today are so violent and reckless. They've been playing this game around my city as well. Also congregating in huge groups and running up on people in the metro, jumping them and running off just cause. Smh

    People are out here doing just about anything for social media attention. I see videos of children and animals intentionally being hurt or frightened for social media attention. The videos are reposted and people actually laugh at them. It's very disappointing.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Did he go to jail?

  • jussaying

    That game? I don't know if the knock out game is over but they're still jumping people for s&gs. That's why I carry a knife and a taser. Wish a little fugger would run up on me. I'm slashing every one of those lil fuggers.

  • http://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    That girl knew he was cray. That's why she covered her face with her hand...

  • Jen_n_juice

    A juvenile??? Really???

  • ThePearl

    Good morning! Won't watch video. Can't. Type of shit makes my stomach ache -- honest.

  • L.T.L. Since 2007

    Fukk this punk. He chose his victim wisely. Couldn't have paid him with #FormationTour tickets to run up on Pookie or Ray Ray and try that shyt.
    Punk bastard

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Somebody should've knocked his ass out for wearing that outfit.

  • Calikush

    They should have charged the lil nigg@s as adults and let Big Snookie and nem be their roommates! D@mn shame the kids today don't have respect for elders! Knocking somebody out for a few measly likes? Smh.... Social media is the devil.....

  • Str8tUpMenace

    LURRRRRRRRKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Where have you been?!?!?!?!?!?!?

  • SandrasNewFave

    This dummy has a lawyer with a defense ready. SMH. His parents need to be knocked out for hiring someone to defend this idiot. His daddy should have marched him in with a lumpy eye.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Someone needs to throw a buck of acid in his face piece of shyt

  • SummerBaby

    Yes he did. Involuntary manslaughter (I think) He did about 5 years or less.

  • GuestSTAR

    Now had that man died from injuries sustained or had a heart attack, his dumb a...... woulda caught an involuntary manslaughter or second degree murder charge, DUMB FK!!, NOW LAUGH AT THAT!!!

  • Str8tUpMenace

    How much yall wanna bet that old man would've gave his lil ass the business had it been a fair fight?????

  • http://Copblock.org aDingoDrankMyBabies

    Dafuq? You mean fighting. Not playing a knockout game?

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Wow. That's crazy. But that's the chance you take when you fight as an adult.

  • jussaying

    Right that old man look like he was full of life in his exercise gear and everything.

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Shank the living shat outta their asses.

  • SandrasNewFave

    That's why oldtimer didn't seek treatment. Ain't nothing but a boo boo to a boo boo.

  • http://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    At least the first one. When you get jumped, just split somebody.

    Ma'am yes ma'am. Lol bet they ass think twice next time.

  • Too Many Colors

    Anyone who is posting chit on social media for likes, or laughs at the expense of OTHER folks is wrong. Yall are a funny ass group of people, you know that?. Some of yall were JUST downstairs talking about Karen Civil's Tweets were old, she has grown, let bygones be bygones. Gonna be the same folk up here talking about this dude was wrong. They BOTH wrong as a summa bish. Both sets of actions are done at the expense of other folks.

    I'm literally schleep after this til 1230. Gn.

  • Buttercup

    I wouldn't bet against that. I've seen old cats knock these young dudes smooth out.

  • Milani

    I mean really...some kids today have absolutely no respect for elders. I remember when I was a teen and my mom took me shopping to get some clothes for school. There was an elderly lady with a cane that was leaving the store. I called myself being impatient and cutting in front of her to leave. I didn't touch her, I didn't do anything to hurt her, but man did my mom yank me by the back of my shirt, pull me back into the store, cuss me out in front of everyone and made me apologize to the lady for cutting her off.

    I never cut in front of anyone, elderly or not after that. #respect

  • SandrasNewFave

    Old school DNA extraction. ?

  • jussaying

    LMAO. Get shanked and then arrested rofl.

  • L.T.L. Since 2007

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Exactly!!!!!!!!!!!!! Where that bus driver at when you need him????

    "YOU GOIN TO JAIL NOW!!!!!!!!! YOU GOIN TO JAIL NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Yoni

    THIS made my stomach hurt. I hate to see any assault on the elderly, mentally challenged/handicapped and babies. Oh the 'games' I could play with him.

  • LeBrick James

    Well at least he's 18 so that's good.. so he'll serve some real prison time for this instead of just a year of juvenile detention.

  • Buttercup

    As my aunt says, "Stick and twist, baby!"

  • SummerBaby

    It was a fight, but the victim didn't want to fight & was resistant to fighting back.

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Exactly. These lil young punks think they're tough for sneaking people, and quick as hell to pull a gun. Damn punks. An old timer would hand these lil young punk whipper snappers their asses.

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Long gone. *sad*

  • http://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    He gon' knock you out, talking about his Bugle Boy jacket.

  • Str8tUpMenace

    That lil punk bish don't want it with me. Lookin like he's wearing his grandma's jacket from 1991.

  • Yoni

    Girl I RARELY go around old ppl that drive slow on the highways and by-ways. I always say, "The Almighty put them there for a reason." Yall better believe it.

  • SummerBaby

    I also know a lady that was mad at her ex so she called her homeboy to beat him up. Her homeboy hit him once dude fell & hit his head on the curb & died. He had a pregnant wife & kids. ?

  • GuestSTAR

    Me to, makes me think of my own mom (dad passed) and someone doing this to her.

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Yep, at least one. Cuz when the rest sees that fool's skin open up and start leaking, they will definitely fall back.

  • L.T.L. Since 2007

    I know I been gone a minute. But what's going on with being put in moderation everytime I try to respond to a comment? Sandra change some sh!t around? Or is Daquan just tripping?

  • jussaying

    Lmfao your aunt about that life

  • Buttercup

    LMBO. I've told y'all about my late uncle who lived on the Southside of Chicago. Young dudes called themselves robbing my uncle at gunpoint. My uncle reached in his pocket for his knife but they thought he was packing so they ran. We were telling him how dangerous that was and he told us, "My aircraft was shot down in WWII. I was burned on over 70% of my body. I survived for 6 days without having a soul around and found my way to civilization. I'm not afraid of some little punks!"

  • observer

    Throw is AZZZZZ in Jail! That is just to protect him from me kicking his stupid, dumb, heartless, ignorant, disrespectful azz. Cause if it were my daddy, uncle, cousin, friend or even a dam stranger I would Knock him out!!!! Truth!!! just for being plain mean!!!

  • Yoni

    Speaking of kids and "games", there is a "game"/EPIDEMIC going around HERE called "the suicide game". Kids killing themselves "for likes". Yep, yall read right. Attempting (and in some cases succeeding) suicide to see "who gone miss me when I'm gone." Yep, yall read that right. How Sway??? THIS generation is GONE yall! GONE! #nopun

  • SummerBaby

    Daquan is just tripping because it sure lets a whole lot of foolish through.

  • LeeSeeCee

    WTH?? Why would you even film this AND post it? These kids are just doing so much extra to get any type of attention. Why would a kid think that is is OK? What a stupid thing to do that will have consequences that will follow this kid for the REST of his life. Just disgusting

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Probably just tripping lmao

  • http://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    That's like when that first shot go off.

    There's two types of people. Those who run, and those who look around to see where it's coming from.

  • jussaying

    WTF kind of logic is that... How you going to know if they miss you if you're dead anyway

  • Milani

    what the hell? smh...I read a story about two teens that died from drinking mountain dew mixed with diesel fuel. I wonder if they were playing that game.

  • SummerBaby

    .....

  • http://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    The past two times I said o-i-l I got put in moderation. I just logged off yesterday...

  • Yoni

    Did yall discuss the BLM activist that committed suicide on the steps of an Ohio government building?

  • Buttercup

    More than I'd care to admit. A guy from my hometown is walking around with a scar on his entire forearm from her cutting him with a broken bottle. The funniest advice is when she tells me to cut someone's heel of his foot???

  • Sunnie?

    Terrible human being... He has no respect.

  • Yoni

    This "game" has folks hanging themselves.

  • LeBrick James

    In certain 'hoods, the victim's family members would want the authorities to just release that punk, so the family could just deal with him their own way.

    This dude might be safer just staying in jail.

  • SummerBaby

    I was reading up on that. I haven't even seen much news coverage about it either.

  • Yoni

    RIGHT! They don't get it. They are THAT lost. I remember a loooonngg time ago, I was reading a story of a lil YT girl that broke up with a boyfriend and she said some shit like "I want to kill myself just to see if he'll show up at the funeral." Bitch whet?

  • Str8tUpMenace

    ^^^^^^^^^THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #salute to Unc

  • http://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    Why does that remind me of Hpnotiq & Hennessey...

  • Too Many Colors

    Awful. Was a twin too. said his demons got the best of him.

  • Yoni

    Right! VERY LITTLE coverage.

  • Buttercup

    Respect. Hopefully, Lil Butter will carry what I'm teaching him throughout his life.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Jesus ...

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Not this day and age. Some of these parents today let these children run wild and will be quick to defend their bad behavior.

  • jussaying

    Lmfao wait how does that work though. How you getting to the heel of their foot?

  • SummerBaby

    New post

  • Yoni

    New post - beat face baby

  • Buttercup

    Let somebody attack an elder in my family. He better pray the law gets to him first.

  • LeBrick James

    I meant the family members of the victim.
    I had to go back and clarify that.

  • Yoni

    Call him. *in my Erykah Badu background singers voice 'Tyrone'*

  • jussaying

    Lmfao oh that's next level crazy. Like Fez's girlfriend in That 70s Show who used to choke herself just to see what it'd be like to live without him lmbo.

  • Yoni

    Yass! And they will!

  • Buttercup

    LOL. I haven't tried it, but my mom told me she destroyed some guy's Achilles by cutting his heel.

  • LeBrick James

    I cant imagine seeing somebody doing that to my grandfather.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Gotcha

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    That pregnant wife should have monkey stomped her hateful azz! Ruined all those lives!

  • jussaying

    Lmfao I'm just trying to picture how this takes place in a fight. Like is she hiding around a corner all crouched down low, does she drop down as soon as a fight begins to stab the heel lmfao.

  • LibraGirlonly

    He is terrible,sick, no self worth and she is just as stupid as he is.

  • LibraGirlonly

    I hope they investigate and make sure it was suicide.

  • LibraGirlonly

    It's the Internet and parents not monitoring what their kids are doing in the web. My son showed me a you tube video of a kid joning and talking about another kids clothes. I immediately told him I didn't think it was funny and I asked him how would he feel if you were the person being made fun of? He got real serious and said I guess it's not that funny. I was like ummm huh.

  • Mel

    He have no mental or emotional problems I saw this video and it broke my heart to know that these kids would do such a thing. He walked up to that poor man while his friend was filming and knocked him out thinking it was funny. I hope his arse get knocked out in jail

  • Mel

    People don't realize the 4 things you just don't mess with in this country are senior citizens, Kids , animals and Jews .

  • LeBrick James

    Sad. Dude put way too much pressure on himself.

    A man needs to always take care of himself first before trying to take care of other people.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Brought tears to my eyes

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    They shalt have fun with him behind bars. That's terrible smh

  • MzFutureLCSW

    Thank God, he is not Black.
    *Yeah, I said it.*

  • Yoni

    Then I woulda took away that fresh coat/shoes/jacket/shirt/pants just so he could see how it felt. IJS

  • Tammie Reed

    And I'm thinking to myself, he didn't hit the right one cuz let him had been in the projects or somewhere else! People pick on people they think they can beat! What a coward!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    You know these cowards never face a real challenge smh

  • fcksimplemindedppl

    young generation is just a shame

  • Renee26

    Not Jews

  • Tammie Reed

    His dumb and ignorant friends that were filming this and laughing in the background need to be forced to be at his court date and film him. Then told to yell out "World Star"while the judge sentences that a**! Then upload it to Youtube, Facebook etc! See how funny it is then! People have ZERO morals these days! Smh!

  • Finding Forever…

    When those kids had that "Purge" going on in Baltimore, throwing rocks, garbage & injured several cops (right & wrong way to protest); looked at my Mom & told her, "there WOULD BE NO WAY for us (my siblings & I) to do this & get away with it"...Her response, "you damn right, you DO NOT have to like them but YOU WILL respect them"...SOCIETY IS SCARY NOW, CAN ONLY IMAGINE THE FUTURE.

  • Mel
