When keeping it real goes wrong: Teen playing knockout game gets shot by his ‘victim’
By Big BOSS
There is a new viral game among teenagers called “Point ‘em out, knock ‘em out.” The game involves the attacker, typically a teenager,; running up to a random person and hitting the person as hard as they can in order to knock them out.
A man in Lansing, Mich., wasn’t hurting anyone, just waiting for his six-year-old daughter to get home from school. The man says that he didn’t have any reason to believe that someone would be looking for him. But he was surprised when he became a victim of the knockout game.
But the person wasn’t looking to punch him out. Instead, he was planning to use a taser on him. But not so fast homie… not everybody is ready to be your victim.
The man pulled out a 40-caliber pistol and shot the attacker twice. The teen’s mistake was that the taser he was using wasn’t working properly, which was just enough time for the man to pull out his gun.
“He shoved something into my side, and I didn’t know what it was. But it had some force to it.”
That’s when the man did enough damage to the teenager to knock him on his back. Not only did he get shot and humiliated, the teen is now behind bars. Marvell Weaver is now serving a year in jail for the attack, but says that the experience is a “lesson learned.”
Brothers, don’t get into this kind of stuff. It never ends good for anybody.
