(KMOV) – St. Louis Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce wrote on her Facebook page on Thursday that she talked to a teenager who claimed to be part of the “Knockout Kings,” a group that likes to attack random people on the street.
There have been a number of serious injuries – even a death associated with the attacks. Joyce says the teenager claims to have knocked out more than 300 people, and does it to get respect.
She doubts the number of victims, but she says she does believe teens are taking part as a way of gaining respect and importance in their groups.
