All that's needed to deter black-on-white violence is for the mayor to hold a newser. Add the city's key cop in the video footage for good measure.
Yep. That'll do it.
Mayor Nutter went on TV with his stern facial expression and pulpit-pounding audacity to psychologically touch young black males who don't watch the news and are likely so high on today's preferred street drug they wouldn't understand him even if they were watching.
So what's the purpose?
It's a little more than a political ploy. The mayor is assuring citizens that they are attuned to the national epidemic and intend to deal with it.
But the black thug hanging out in the dark shadows of the parking garage could care less. The governmental hubris that lends it to believe it can solve predisposed genetic behavior that is reinforced by decades of victimization messages implanted by media and education venues with an afternoon news conference is suffering from abject denial or outright stupidity.
Nutter's newser was a nice gesture. It won't, however, be particularly effective. The best defense against those black thugs (polite term) bent on beating white people is a chambered 38.
Annie, get you gun.

Mayor Nutter Says “Knockout” Attacks “Will Not Be Tolerated Here”
By Dan Wing and Todd Quinones / CBS Philly
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Mayor Michael Nutter was joined by other city leaders Monday evening in an attempt to stop the so-called “Knockout Game” from spreading to Philadelphia.
Nutter was joined by Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey, as they discussed the so-called game in which a person is randomly assaulted, while another person films it with their phone or other device.
With cases reported in other U.S. cities including New York, Mayor Nutter says the city is working to stay ahead of the problem, but needs parents to do their part.
“This is not a game. You can seriously injure or possibly kill someone. Your child’s life will be dramatically changed, and probably yours as well as a parent. So let’s cut out the nonsense. There are many other things that people can do to enjoy themselves. This is not one of them,” Nutter said.
The Mayor says that anyone caught taking part in the “knockout” game will face charges ranging from aggravated assault up to third degree murder, but that’s not all.
“You’re also hurting another human being for no reason at all. There’s no excuse for this kind of behavior, it will not be tolerated here in the city. We will do everything we can to both prevent, but if someone does engage, we will catch you. You’ll be prosecuted, and your life will be changed dramatically,” he said.
The Mayor says that the District Attorney’s office supports the effort to prevent this game from becoming a common occurrence in the city, saying they will seek the most serious of charges and prosecute to the fullest.
Nutter urged parents to discuss the dangers and lasting effect the game can have, citing those type of discussions as a major factor in the reduction of flash mobs that became a problem in years past.
“Pay attention to what they’re doing, who they’re hanging with. Don’t get caught up in this group thing. That’s what happened with those flash mobs,” Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey said.
Last Friday, Philadelphia Police announced the arrest of a 15-year-old in connection with a “knockout” attack in Northeast Philadelphia earlier this month.
Investigators say a 15-year-old male has been arrested and they are searching for a second suspect for their roles in an attack outside a pizza shop in Fox Chase on November 11th.
