Man gets coldcocked by teen at Upper Darby trolley stop

Is the so-called "knockout game" back? Or is it just an urban myth? Regardless, this guy got coldcocked in Upper Darby.

Man gets coldcocked by teen at Upper Darby trolley stop

I'm not going to get into a debate about whether the so-called "knockout game" is a real thing or Drudge-fueled hysteria, but Fox29 has posted a video out of Delco that is just sad to see.

Guy is waiting for a trolley in Upper Darby and gets absolutely coldcocked by a teenager. The soft-spoken bespeckled man, who takes medication for anxiety, didn't want to be identified (can you blame him?), but said he's extremely disappointed with "how the world's changed since I’ve known it."

Me, too, buddy. The world grew up to be a real sonovabitch.
