In Lansing, Michigan the “knock-out game” is called “Point em Out, Knock Em Out.” A dad waiting at a bus stop for his 6-year old daughter was attacked, not by a punch but by a faulty taser gun. The dad pulled-out his legal, concealed carry weapon and shot 17-year-old Marvell Weaver in the leg and butt. Weaver said he and others “play” the game because he and others are “bored.” Weaver is spending a year in jail.

The object: Target an innocent victim for no other reason than they are there, then sucker punch him or her… The 17-year-old in gym shorts approached his target. The 28-year-old Lansing man was waiting for his daughter at her school-bus stop at REO Road and Ballard Street… The teen had two friends nearby – dropped off by a third friend in a van after they scouted their target. They knew what Marvell Weaver was going to do. They had discussed it. Weaver approached his victim from behind, a black KL-800 Type Stun Gun in his pocket. It is capable of generating 1.8 million volts. He passed him and turned back, pressed the stun gun into the victim’s side. Again and again, and … nothing… The intended victim moved quickly, pulling his stainless steel .40-caliber Smith and Wesson… He shot Weaver in his buttocks as the teen turned to flee… “‘I’m sorry, please don’t kill me, I don’t know why I did that, I’m high you know, I just wanna go home,’” the teen told the man who had just shot him… A witness told police the man stayed by the teen and appeared supportive and non-threatening. The teen was hospitalized with a non-life threatening injury. Read more at The Daily Caller, August 2013
