BRUNSWICK, Ga. -- Police charged four people for an unprovoked attack on a juvenile inside a Walmart.

The alleged attack happened Sunday inside the Walmart on Altama Avenue.

The entire incident was captured by the store's security camera.

Police said the victim, the son of a Glynn County fire chief, sustained swelling and bruising to the facial area where the punch landed.

Police identified the attacker as Brandon Allen, Jr., 18.

He and Jervon Sanderson, 18, Kaleb Dirting, 18, and Ramone Roberson, 19 are charged with first-degree cruelty to children.

The attack is similar to what has become known as the "Knockout Game" where offenders randomly sucker-punch strangers with the goal of knocking them unconscious, said police.

You all are stupid these are people kids all of them are in High school except for the one that hit the guy. The other three are trying to get a dang high school diploma. I agree there should be consequences but these are still young kids who just needed a wake up call who they were with. You people think only one sided which shows how foolish you are. You wanna ruin these kids lives just because u like to see people get locked up, but put yourself in the kids shoes that tagged along. They are going down for something they didn't do.

More nonsensical violence from the black community. I see alot of people reacting to this on a case by case basis and I fear that is the wrong way to handle it. Obviously these nugs need to be put away, permanently, but they wont and then 10 years from now when they are all in prison for 25-life because they killed some store clerk for $50, there peers will tell us its our fault, society never gave them a chance. Thats what they are told and thats what they beleive. Its not them, its "us". Well folks, I think it may be just about time to look at this from a higher level, from the "what type of culture would create this type of cancerous not only self but completely destructive useless vermin"? We can no longer say that cronquia, deandre and prince are troubled youth that did something wrong because thats not true. This is something that is happening all over the country and it involves and came from the black community. We have a social group that goes around punching people in the face and calling it a game? Women, children, 10 to 90 year olds. Unsuspecting but more importantly undeserving. Where is the NAACP on this? Where is Hackson and NotSoSharpton now? No money in it for them and indefensable so instead of saying stop acting like shaved apes, your proving all of the "racists" points to the black community the instead try to turn it on the American and say its our faults for some reason or another. If you always blame someone else you can never improve yourself because you never do anything wrong. You want to know why black violent crime and the ghetto life continues to grow and flourish? Becasue we ALLOW it to, we encourage nug life and glamourize idiots like Beyonce and her really looking like a monkey husband. They are "role models" for the PRESIDENTS DAUGHTERS! Einstein is a role model to my kids! That being the case how can we possibly survive as a society with such disparity on who we idolize even? Look at where it ends up. Its time to end this nonsense.

How can the parents be responsible? These are adults who chose to act like kids. Good parents have children who do stupid things.

When it's 4 against 1, I don't have a problem with "bang, bang, you're dead".

They are only air news stories about this if it has white people in it. When it is entirely blacks on white it is not aired. There has been numerous attacks in cities and states with strict gun control laws. The news media has been ordered not to give air time in cases where it is all black attackers.

No family, no morals, No God in their life theya re told gays are ok ,killing the unborn is ok, children out of wedlock is ok, so they grow up animals. If Obama had a son they would look like these dirt bags.

I agree these punks deserve some prison time and their parents should be held accountable and be forced to pay the cost of their prison stay. I’m sick of certain members of this county raising kids who are basically no better than animals and then turning those animals loose on society to deal drugs, commit armed robberies and of course murders. Then when their kid gets arrested, they talk to the media about what a good kid they are, which makes me so angry I’d like to see every one of them killed, just as you would do to any other dangerous animal.
