The King Hit (or Sucker Punch) is causing a lot of problems in todays society. It is easy to hit someone with a cheap shot.
We explore this King Hit issue in this post. We look at the injuries and family suffering that King Hits cause. We look at some statistics. We look at the pettiness of the reasons people use these cheap attacks. We look at the culprits. We ask if King Hits are a reflection of a cheapening of life these days and dehumanisation more generally.
Regardless how much much of a cheap shot these sorts of attacks are, the threat posed by them is very real - especially if you are drunk (drunk=slow).
Let's get stuck into it.
