Playing the "knockout" game last week, one participant is learning that trying to knock random people unconscious with a single punch could have dangerous consequences.
Marvell Weaver, a 17 year old from Michigan, attempted to "knock out" a man at a Lansing bus stop. Unbeknownst to Weaver, the man was a legal concealed carry permittee and was carrying a gun at the time. No not Zimmerman.
After approaching the man and "shoving something" into his side, Weaver was shot twice and survived. He has been sentenced to a year in jail.
Weaver claims that this was his six or seventh attempt at knocking someone out, and says that his arrest is a "lesson learned." He said he usually played the game when he was "bored" and usually under the influence of drugs. He was inspired by seeing knockout game videos on the internet.
This game is yet another troubling sign of the decay of society. Other parts of the country have a differant name for this game call "polar bear hunting'. Keep your head up folks as you're walking around out there, be aware of your surroundings.
