Brutal urban assaults on innocent citizens by inner city thugs continues to make headlines all over the country.
The so-called “knockout game” involves young punks sneaking up on unsuspecting victims and sucker punching them with enough force to knock them out. A successful “knockout” earns the attacker instant street cred and racks up “likes” on social networking websites.
One such attack that was caught on video is unique in that the attacker, Sharkeisha, appears to know her victim.
UPDATE: Sharkeisha’s beating victim, Sharmichael Manuel, 17, told KHOU-TV she was astounded when her former friend mauled her in such fashion.
The Houston teenager says the assailant and a group of girls set her up for the fight video, luring her to an apartment complex under false pretenses.
Manuel thought she was picking up some of her belongings. She was wrong.
“I was just in shock. I was like oh my God. Did she really do this? You’re supposed to be my close friend,” Manuel said. “We were talking in school earlier that day.”
“She made it seem like there was nothing wrong with her.”
The fight broke out over a boy, Manuel reveals, and after Sharkeisha finished the staggering assault, a neighbor drove the battered teen home.
Manuel was left with black eye and busted lip. She hasn’t returned to school since the assault, in part because she has trouble seeing out of her eye.
“It is hurting and crushing to me,” Manuel said, noting that the physical pain is just the start. “I felt humiliated, embarrassed and hurt at the same time.”
Watch her talk about the ordeal below …

This is not a joke. Amazon.com, the world’s largest online shopping retailer, plans to begin delivering packages into customers’ hands by use of remote controlled drones.
The U.S. government already uses drones in military operations to drop bombs on the heads of unsuspecting terrorists. But don’t be surprised if one of Amazon’s drones drops that package you ordered on your head in 30 minutes or less.

The entertainment world was shaken to its core by the news of the tragic death of ‘Fast & Furious’ franchise star Paul Walker over the weekend.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department says excessive speed was a factor in the death of Walker, 40, and his financial adviser, Roger Rodas, 38.
Rodas was at the wheel of a 2005 Porsche Carrera GT when it hit a light pole and wrapped itself around a tree near the site of a fundraiser that Walker attended on Saturday in Valencia, CA.
Emergency responders found the mens’ bodies nearly incinerated inside the mangled wreckage of the half million dollar sports car.
Walker’s death was a freakish footnote to the underground racing movie franchise that made him a household name.
