Three New Jersey teens are currently locked up on murder charges after they allegedly punched a man to death during a game of “Knockout", according to the New York Daily News.
The three teens, all from Jersey City, followed the homeless Hoboken man, Ralph Erick Santiago, 46, down a street back in September. One of the boys punched Santiago, causing him to fall back from the blow and collapse onto an iron fence, where he died after his neck was wedged between two posts, police said.

Investigators believe the teens were playing a violent game called “Knockout” when they attacked Santiago. The “game” is simple: walk up to an unsuspecting, defenseless person on the street and try and punch them out with one blow. While there is not data showing exactly how many people have died as a result of this horrible act of violence, many cases similar to Santiago’s have made national headlines in the past.
PLEASE, IF YOU SEE OR KNOW ANYONE DOING THIS IN YOUR COMMUNITY, CALL THE AUTHORITIES. THIS IS NOT THE FUTURE OF AMERICA I WANT MY CHILDREN BEING AROUND.
**WARNING** Some of the images in the video are graphic and violent. This is not a game... This is ASSAULT!
