"I commenced to doing the 'Turner Station knockout' on him," Pettit writes, referencing the African-American section of Dundalk, where he'd lived previously. "I caught him flush with a left to the head, and then I hit him with two or three sharp right-and-left-hand combinations. Down he went. In the 'Turner Station stomp' we don't do like the white boys and stop punching when the opponent hits the ground. I continued to throw punches. His father grabbed me from the back and screamed 'you'll kill him!' And when his father grabbed me, my father grabbed him. Knowing my father, George, was enough for me to get off David. David was totally unconscious, and people rushed to try to revive him."
