Pete Kruchowski Was Not A Knockout Game Victim, According to Police

Police say Pete Kruchowski is not a victim of the knockout game.
Last Wednesday night, Pete Kruchowski -- known as Li'l Pete to many St. Louisans in the film and music community -- was found unconscious next to his undamaged bicycle near Tower Grove Park. His wallet and cell phone were still with him, and  Kruchowski has skull fractures, broken bones and a punctured lung, which fueled suspicion that he was the latest victim of the knockout game.

Today, St. Louis Police officially classified what happened to Kruchowski as a "non-criminal incident." So what happened then?

No one knows for certain. You'd think if Kruchowski had been hit by a car, his bike would be damaged in some way. It could have been a run-of-the-mill cycling accident, but the severity of his injuries would seem to belie that. Kruchowski has no memory of the incident, and no witnesses have come forward with information.

Tonight residents of the Tower Grove Park neighborhood gather to discuss the incident, and the threat of the knockout game returning with the warmer weather. Pete Kruchowski remains in an area hospital recovering from his injuries.

Holy fucking Christ, this argument is getting ridiculous. You guys realize every single race is prone to violence, right?? It's human nature at it's worst. As far as the evidence shows, both situations could have equally been probable. My dad flipped head over wheels while riding his bike once and the bike suffered no obvious damage. My friend got jumped riding his bike over by Tower Grove and got the shit beat out of him but the kids didn't take or damage his bike. Until further incriminating evidence surfaces, police have no option but to classify this as non-criminal. He still had his wallet and cell phone, for fuck's sake.

ALL the evidence points to him being on his way back from purchasing Skittles and Ice Tea when he was viciously attacked by an UGLY BLACK RACIST!

as a cyclist the injuries are consistent with a crash.  I've had friends in crashes that have had fx clavicles/cracked ribs and head trauma without external factors.

Whenever and wherever coloreds are temporarily "lifted up" by politically correct Whites, as soon as the Whites leave, the coloreds will always return to their savage voodooo barbarian mannerisms and the land and all its riches turned to dust.

Skullfractures, broken bones and a punctured lung (Not to mention he was in the ICU)and his is bike was not damaged at all. Well that’s some pretty good "evidence"to me that this was criminal act. How the city Police can come up with non-criminalact is beyond me. O wait, the Cardinals are about to open up their season. Iguess they need to focus all their time and money on that.

People's rampant speculation...the rush to assume...the accusations of guilt or innocence before all the facts are out and due process performed HAS GOT TO STOP.  I was watching the news that night and a friend mentioned "knockout kings" even before the newscaster had finished the story.  Some may argue that such speculation before the facts are out is innocent but I disagree strongly.  It biases and prejudices the mind, closes people from hearing evidence that may go against their preconceptions, makes a problem seem worse than it is, and even forces people to overreact when not necessary. From this isolated incident all the way to the Trayvon Martin clusterf*ck it’s getting out of control.  As it becomes more acceptable for people to make up their minds on such limited facts how could anyone be sure of a fair and unbiased trial by jury in the future?  How many readers thought when they heard this story that it had to be the “knockout kings” game and if so ask yourself why? Just because we live in a world where instant gratification is becoming the norm doesn’t mean it should apply to justice.  Often, to be done right, justice takes time.

You blaspheme Christ just like a jew! Every race is prone to violence, blacks it's part of their genetic makeup. That's the major difference.

Susan, you are right these injuries are consist of a bikecrash but they are also consist of beating to. I too have had friends that were involved in bike accidents and myproblem with this situation is that all of their bikes had some significant damageto it.  Even in situations when theperson just a couple of scraps. Petes bike was not damaged. The city’s officialsconsistently try “sweep” this stuff under the “rug” and it has to stop.

Agree with the crash consistent injuries, but the bike will take a beating in a crash of this magnitude.  Not to mention a history of these assaults in the neighborhood.

as a White man the injuries are consistent with a black racist hate crime. I've had fellow race members that have been beaten, raped and murdered by black savages and the injuries are consistent with the savagery of the black race.

It's just knockout game.  Not "knockout kings".

If any of you have been infected with the sickness of White guilt, you should seek treatment IMMEDIATELY! It's a very destructive illness that eats away at your culture and replaces it with a sick warped counter culture

Dude get off your self loathing high horse and stop comparing this incident with the likes of Trayvon.  I mean seriously you preach of instant gratification, then use the newest, hippest, buzz wordiest incident / cause. Which has nothing to do with St Louis' proven and growing (year to year over 3 years) trend of group juvenile assault upon innocent random victims.

"Today’s anthropologists and evolutionary biologists don’t think it’s civilization that makes us violent. Sadly, they say, humans have an intrinsic capacity for violence."  This is an excerpt from National Geographic Magazine's website. (http://blogs.ngm.com/blog_cent... Show me any legitimate and reputable evidence to prove otherwise and I will read it. Until then, go fuck yourself, you racist piece of shit.

The "problem" of sweeping black hate under the rug is systemic and is societal - all the way from the media to the court systems to the laws.

I've known of people who have been in bad bike accidents where they were hurt this badly and worse and the bike came out fine. Just think about someone going over the handlebars at about 20 to 25 mph. It's not hard to imagine. The cops are basing their conclusions on the facts at hand, not speculation. There is no evidence he was beaten. He was on a bike, it was dark, he was drinking and found at the bottom of a hill. His injuries are consistant with a worst case single bike accident. The only conclusion you can come to based on the facts is that it was a bike wreck, there is nothing to suggest anything else happened except for what people would like to believe. Could something else have happened? Sure. But if there isn't any proof the cops shouldn't be speculating about it. I'm sure the cops would be open to other theories if there was evidence to back it up.

I think the OPs message is completely lost on you dude.  The post was all about what people assume happened and new evidence to suggest otherwise, which OP commented on.  What's your problem?

What has to stop is making excuses for the failed black race. We come up with a solution. Are they put in to camps or deported back to Africa? Nothing else has worked or will work. When left unmanaged blacks are a violent unpredicatable group that does not and will not assimilate in to society. It must be with members of its own species where they can rape and murder each other without harming human beings. We shoot a mountain lion or a bear when it attacks humans but when blacks do it they're given housing, a new automobile, clothing and an allowance that they can spend on liquor drugs and prostitution.

Cops are hired because they can not find other employment and because they're bullies that want to oppress the public. So to suggest that they have any intelligence whatsoever is ridiculous.

Now as far as beatings go we know five things: ALL blacks are racists, ALL blacks carry a chip on their shoulder, ALL blacks are criminals of opportunity, ALL blacks are cowards and would use an opportunity like this to clothesline a White person, ALL blacks go from zero to VIOLENT withou any provocation whatsoever because by their very nature they're from a violent backwards race that has no redeeming qualities.

It could, but there have been many incidents where the rider was hurt and the bike was undamaged. He was also found at the bottom of a hill (Gustine and Arsenal) so if the accident happened there the bike isn't sliding anywhere. If the front tire hit an obstacle in the road (ever see a tree branch in the street in that area? I did this morning) the rider can go flying and the bike pretty much stays put or rolls a little bit and falls down. You can't say it always happens the same way. Sometimes the bike can be damaged and sometimes the bike isn't damaged at all. All I'm saying is it can happen either way and the fact that the bike was undamaged isn't really proof that anything else happened. I personally can't imagine a group of teenagers beating up a bicyclist and if not outright stealing the bike at least taking it for a joy ride.

Over the bars at 20+ will yield loads of damage to a bike. It would either flip end for end down the hill bending rims etc or it would slide down the hill yielding damage so visible even STL PD would notice.

well considering no media outlet is reporting actual evidence to back up your claim.  And the OP is trying to evoke emotion by comparing a killing to what most likely was an assault.
