Texas residents may be concerned to hear about a new and disturbing trend that is spreading throughout the nation and has law enforcement alarmed. Called knockout, the objective of this so-called game is to manage to knock a person out with one blow. At times, this assault is deadly to the victim. In one particular case, a homeless man was struck from behind. Due to a pre-existing brain injury, he suffered a seizure and fell forward into a nearby fence, which impaled and killed him.
A man is facing multiple charges in connection with an alleged triple murder that took place in Bardwell. The 27-year-old is currently being held in an Ellis County detention center on a bail of $1 million, according to an Ellis County Sheriff's spokesperson.
Police officers are charged with enforcing the laws we live by, whether it be traffic rules or laws prohibiting fraud. Because of this, it is a troubling irony when a police officer is accused of a crime.
