As the knockout game gains popularity, it's also gaining media coverage, and thus, people in major cities are beginning to grow eyes in the back of their heads.

Case in point? A man in Lansing, Michigan, who was accosted by a teenager attempting to taze him as he waited to pick up his daughter at a bus stop.

Tazing is a new addition to the knockout game, and even more dangerous than using fists. It didn't matter much to "player" Marvell Weaver, however.

Legally carrying a concealed handgun for self-defense, his would-be victim saw the attempted "hit" coming just in time and calmly shot the goon twice.

Weaver was then jailed, tried and convicted after pleading guilty.




Shame he wasn't shot to death, but still a win IMO

If the news didn't cover it, no one would even know of this game....

I'm so glad I don't live in a country where people can legally carry around handguns. Although what the guy did was wrong, shooting someone for it is way over the top.

yeah I think some people whip them out way too easily, and that's how people get shot 'accidentally'

Depends on the circs. The shooter said he thought he had be stabbed, if that's true then lethal force would be almost certainly justifiable.

If you ask me, someone who finds it fun to go around hitting innocent people won't be missed.

In the UK, they take it one level higher, they decapitate the victim

Where are the days of playing 'mouse trap' with the family?

I'll suggest we play 'knockout' at our family Christmas dinner.
