With the obvious attempt to kill and the news full of knockout game deaths, the charges for knockout perps should be an attempted murder charge vs just assault.

This criminal activity is not far removed from other activities that are now considered entertainment in America and elsewhere. The brutal UFC that is broadcast in every bar and even family restaurants like Applebee's show people punching each other in the face to cheering crowds. The Hunger Games also seems to be popular showing people killing each other for entertainment. IMHO we should stop considering violence and brutality as acceptable entertainment. While not stating I want this to happen, I would be less offended entering a business and seeing sexual pornography on their TV screens. At least they seem to be enjoying themselves. However both violence and sex are porn and neither should be shown on regular TV.
