Three teenagers were charged for the murder of a homeless Hoboken man who authorities claim was the victim of a violent game called knockout.
The boys, two 13-year-olds and a 14-year-old, allegedly followed Ralph Erick Santiago, 46, on Third St. before one of the teens threw a punch at the victims head on Sept. 10, prosecutors said.
Santiago fell back from the blow and collapsed onto an iron fence, where he died after his neck was wedged between two posts, police said.
He was just a loving person, cared about everybody, very spiritual, his cousin, who declined to give his name, told CBS News. And it just wasnt deserved.
The three suspects, who were not identified because they are juveniles, turned themselves in after police released surveillance pictures of them near the scene.
They were being held without bail at the Hudson County Youth Detention Center after they were arraigned on murder charges Friday.
Investigators believe the teens, who live in Jersey City, were playing a violent game that involves randomly attacking innocent pedestrians in an effort to knock the victim out with one punch.
Relatives told the Jersey Journal that Santiago, a former break dancer and gymnast, was disabled after a similar attack in the Bronx nearly three decades ago.
Santiago was walking with his then-wife, Tracy Squillini, when she told the paper he was attacked outside a public housing complex.
The brutes repeatedly pounded Santiagos head into the sidewalk before they left him lying unconscious on the street, Squillini said.
The attack put Santiago in a month-long coma, and left him permanantly brain-damaged. He underwent years of physical therapy and needed medication to prevent seizures, Squillini said.
Santiago and Squillini later divorced, but the couple shared a son together.
I loved him. Not in that romantic way anymore, but because he was truly my friend, Squillini said. Santiago last spoke to his son a year ago, when the disabled man was evicted from his apartment.
Squillini said the family was relieved that the arrests had been made, but she wants to see justice served.
Until theres a conviction, Im not going to feel that closure, she told CBS News.
If we don’t stop George Zimmerman, this stuff is just going to continue!
Just call 'em OBAMA KIDS!!
There have been some cases where they have attacked other blacks, mainly elderly blacks. Just as sick as any other attack.
Oooooh, those poor little Trayvons, where are their elementary school photos? They must have been stalked by another gay cracker. LOL, wait and see what happens when the defense team get this case. I’m sure their parents will copyright their names so they can sell stuff.
“Squillini said the family was relieved that the arrests had been made, but she wants to see justice served”
Not going to happen. Obamas’ sons will walk by the time they are 18 and then get to do it to someone else. The animals would simply be shot along with their parent(s) in a just world.
Based on the testimonies of those that could comment on Santiago ... Satan stalked a good man and took him out.
It is not difficult to step back and look at a broad picture of the planet.
EVIL seems to be the guiding force behind almost all killings .. especially the murderous muzzies.
Evil is personified in Satan and I believe people can be posessed by evil ... whether Satan himself or one of his demons.
Be that as it may ... there is no randomness nor circumstance behind good people being murdered ... it is EVIL'S emboldened onslaught of Christians and good people.
Three decades ago some punks did to this guy what Trayvon was doing to Zimmerman. This is only going to get worse until the people get enough of it and THEY become afraid to come out at night.
Only one class of "teen" plays Knockout King.
Put ‘em a woodchipper feet first.
I think a “game” this vile deserves the death penalty, even for minors.
That’s right!These”Kids”are merely”Expressing”themselves!!I wonder if they happen to be of”The Darker Persuasion”?
“There have been some cases where they have attacked other blacks, mainly elderly blacks. Just as sick as any other attack.”
Any links? Would be a man bites dog story if true.
The only blacks who play the knockout game are gay blacks. Any black playing the knockout game is a faggot. Spread the word.
Who may also be accurately described as “Holder Youth” after Obama’s AG who has openly stated that Federal Hate Crime laws DO NOT protect white Americans from racially motivated violence.
The only blacks who play the knockout game are dead blacks. The Second Amendment works. Spread the word.
Similarly in Albany NY a few years ago three Yoots accidently shot a white University student in the back of his head. ACCIDENTLY THE SHOOTER SAID. Bailey, a University at Albany student, was shot in the head about 11:20 p.m. that night as he walked home from watching Monday Night Football by three Yoots on bicycles.
According to the shooter, the ACCIDENTAL SHOOTING occurred during a “ROBBERY”. You live in a tough town when your cover for executing someone by shooting him in the back of his head is because you were robbing him.
The local Obama Outlet Organ did not provide details from the trial which would detail how one “accidently” shoots a person in the back of the head.
That monster sitting in the White House has set racial relations back 200 years.
I think he was a member of the Nation of Islam (Black Muslims).
So I am walking down the sidewalk. Walking towards me in my direction is an African male. Youth model. I alter my trajectory and move to be well out of the range where he could reach me without charging me.
Does this mean that I am a racist?
I don’t live in an urban area, but over the last year we have had a group of “teenager types” doing serious beat downs of white people. Recently they crashed a HS end of summer outdoor party and beat the crap out of people, GIRLS included. They ran into it swinging.
I think the cops arrested them this time partly because they were concerned about some vigilante justice and what attention that would draw from the national race baiters, including our “post racial” President.
I have a CCDW but only just started carrying around here on a regular basis. But when I go to Louisville, I carry.
The guy that taught our CCDW class said his job (Louisville metro) prohibited him from carrying; but when he was sent to certain areas, he carried nonetheless.
Are you non-black? Then of course you are.
It is not a game, and people need to fight back against media attempts to call it a game. A “violent game”? Sounds like Grand Theft Auto. This is a “violent CRIME” done for fun. It is a psychopathic attack. It is not a game.
This the absolute truth and strikes the root of the matter. The police and the courts are there to protect so-called "minority" criminals. They get arrested time and again and even if they are convicted, which is a small percentage of the time, prison is no punishment and is no deterrent. The criminal justice system is really a criminal social welfare system.
Since the fifties, whenever there is a major riot involving so-called minorities the National Guard is called out to protect the rioters from fed-up citizens and prevent repeat of the Tulsa Race Riots of 1921.
It’s REALLY “Knockout WHITEY”.
It stems from the same urge to redefine language as saying that “protestors” burned the embassy in Benghazi and killed some of its occupants. Sure, they were just “protesting” and knockout is just a “game”. Clinton, the probable rapist and certain serial sexual harasser, was merely “womanizing”. There are many other examples. Of course they play the game the other way, e.g. characterizing semi-auto firearms as “military assault rifles”. It’s all about advancing the narrative.
Not going to happen. You know where this is all leading. And when it gets there you had better be prepared.
Open advice to everyone:
If you don't carry, start training now and get your CCW. Also get a good all purpose home defense firearm and learn how to use it.
Either chip them for fish food or deport the bastards, send them home.
Send the pieces of shit to a place they know and recognize. A place where their black hearts will fit in. Who knows, maybe the Lieberians might retune their fiddles.
If they don’t want to fit in, then deport them....
Calling it a game trivializes it. It is murder.
Obviously the media does not see the perps as responsible humans in full control of their actions. So it calls the murder a game.
The life forms at an earlier level of development than normal people call this a game because to them it is just another form of entertainment, like stealing, raping and taking drugs. Since they obviously will never become productive members of society, they can use their developmentally disabled brain power to play games.
Media bots: stop trying desperately to hide significant facts about murderers. No matter how you try to make believe, whenever there’s a ‘wilding’, gang rape, beating of an old person, ‘mob rob’ we know that it’s done by holder’s boys.
Hey Jesse Jackson - where are you on this one? NBC ??? You don’t have to doctor tapes on this one... Looks like hate to me...
If 3 whites had done this to a black man you - Jesse Jackson - would be there with bells on... what... you only protect blacks Jesse? Hey Sharpton - you guys a bunch of racists? Only care about one race?
They’re just hormone-ridden angry young punks, give them a break. They’ll be fine in a few years after its out of their system. You’ll see.
In the mean time, more Obamacare money for the rest and the population problem is reduced a bit.
But make sure it moves at its SLOWEST speed.
I don’t care how it sounds. I can’t stand them, i really can’t. I have really searched my soul, and have come to the conclusion that the majority of blacks, 16-40, are absolutely hopeless. To say they lack a moral compass would be as big an understatement as Neville Chamberlain saying “I think Mr. Hitler is up to something”. I have really tried, hoping that I would be proven wrong, but I can’t see them ever changing their penchant for wanton violence of the lowest order of savagery and base uncivilized behavior. They lie about things that don’t matter, can’t be trusted to accomplish the simplest of tasks, raise their children like feral cats, often referring to toddlers as “motherfvcker” in public. They embrace cultural stupidity as a sacred birthright, and emit foul food odors as they conduct picnics in public transportation. A sad reality of their pathetic state of affairs is that most of this obnoxious behavior is the result of 50 years of white liberal guilt manifested through the Great Society programs of LBJ. The best thing for white America is to cut our losses. Quit trying to bend over backwards to prove our good intentions, since they are not reciprocated in any way, shape or form. They should gradually be marginalized in our society, with the goal of establishing reservations for them in rural areas, far away from where they could do further damage and annoy us further with their loud, obnoxious, juvenile behavior. Taking them seriously on any appreciable level is a fool’s errand.
I don’t think it’s the majority. It’s the bottom 20-25%..the black underclass. If they could be eliminated from the American scene, the rest of the black community was rise by their absence. But how to do it? My solution, sterilization of anyone with an IQ under 80 and anybody applying for welfare, has been attacked on this board as eugenics. Many people pretend it’s not a genetics problem when the evidence overwhelmingly suggests it is. Get tough on black criminals, sterilize the bottom 20-25%, and black Americans will start competing with the rest of the country.
that’s “would rise” by their absence. Not was rise.
Not rural areas, no way! keep em where they are, in the festering shatholes called cities. I want my rural area to stay as is, thanks.
“Not rural areas, no way! keep em where they are, in the festering shatholes called cities. I want my rural area to stay as is, thanks.”
The welfare sows and their “golden ticket” bastards can’t live in rural areas; they would literally freeze to death with the first winter. They have to live somewhere in which a large (expensive) staff of white people tend to their every basic need.
“and have come to the conclusion that the majority of blacks, 16-40, are absolutely hopeless”
This is happening to a growing number of whites in that demographic as well, as the WASP culture is further erased from the national consciousness.
“A sad reality of their pathetic state of affairs is that most of this obnoxious behavior is the result of 50 years of white liberal guilt manifested through the Great Society programs of LBJ.”
White guilt is a myth; look at how libs treat blacks as pariahs, and you realize that from the start it was a vote-buying scheme.
“They should gradually be marginalized in our society, with the goal of establishing reservations for them in rural areas, far away from where they could do further damage”
This is already done with the urban welfare reservations (hives); this victim died because of train access.
“Taking them seriously on any appreciable level is a fools errand.”
That’s why nobody does.
