‘Point ‘Em out, Knock ‘Em Out': Brutal Game Ends When Assault Victim Fires His Concealed Handgun

John Barnes, Michigan Live, August 26, 2013

The game was called “point ‘em out, knock ‘em out,” and it was as random as it was brutal.

The object: Target an innocent victim for no other reason than they are there, then sucker punch him or her.

But on this day in Lansing, there would be no punch. The teen-age attacker had a stun gun. He did not know his would-be victim was carrying a legally concealed pistol.

The teen lost the game.

{snip}

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.

{snip}

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. It had fired earlier when testing it, he would later tell police.

“The button was like stuck down … or something. I don’t know what caused it not to work,” according to a transcript of Weaver’s statement.

The intended victim moved quickly, pulling his stainless steel .40-caliber Smith and Wesson. It had a full 10-bullet magazine, and was worth about $900 police estimated.

He shot Weaver in his buttocks as the teen turned to flee.

“It happened so fast I wasn’t sure. I just know something was shoved into my side. I wasn’t sure if it was a knife, if it was anything,” he told police.

Weaver ran, sat down across the street, his leg going numb, bleeding. Pleading.

“‘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.

The man called 911. He told the dispatcher the teen was “terminally wounded” and that he was a concealed pistol holder.

{snip}

This is a recording of the 911 call. The audio breaks off as the man deals with events, but his father also calls police.

{snip}

The teen was hospitalized with a non-life threatening injury. At first, Weaver said he merely removed the stun gun from his pocket to look at it and the man shot him. He later confessed to the attack, records show.

Police asked for an attempted robbery warrant. The prosecutor authorized a lesser charge, illegal possession of a stun gun, a maximum two-year felony. {snip}

{snip}

Whatever the outcome, the teen has written a letter apologizing to his victim.

“I don’t blame you for what you did. You were only trying to protect yourself. I only wish I could go back to change it to were (sic) I never did it.”

“Im very sorry,” he closes at the letter’s end.

    But on this day in Lansing, there would be no punch. The teen-age attacker had a stun gun. He did not know his would-be victim was carrying a legally concealed pistol.

    Thanks for this bit of good news. Another would-be thug stopped. Pity he didn’t join St. Skittles in hell.

    Any comments yet from brothers Obama, Jackson and Holder?

    • A Freespeechzone

      I agree…but, watch, the self-loathing liberals will take the position that the criminal was in retreat when shot….then bring charges and make the teen the victim.

      Frankly, this punk got exactly what he deserved–lucky he wasn’t killed.

      Given the anti-White climate…..just watch.

      • Erasmus

        Let the lefties try. People are tired. They are starting to see who makes up the criminal class in this country. They are starting to see what their kids’ classmates who disrupt the educational process for everyone else look like.

        We’re starting to have that conversation about race the lefties have been always demanding, but it’s not going the way they want. It’s becoming too honest.

        • NeanderthalDNA

          I think you are onto something. There is a silent fury building among our people.

          • So CAL Snowman

            It’s NOT silent anymore. I even see fatigue on Tech sites and movie review sites with people actively voicing their fatigue about being made to feel guilty for being White.

          • Erasmus

            I’ve never felt guilty about being white. I’m proud to be from a culture and tradition that gave us the scientific method, the calculus, that developed symphonic music and made most of the discoveries that make life so pleasant here on earth.

            What I’m tired of is having to allow a bunch of social misfits to continue to blame their problems and their own failures and short-comings on everyone else. I’m tired of my tax dollars going to pay for their illegitimate babies and reward their irresponsible behavior. I’m tired of having to pretend that what they pawn off as culture isn’t anti-social trash. I’m tired of having to pretend that they aren’t a cancer on American society. I’m tired of pretending that if we only keep throwing more money at the problems of their own making, things will turn around.

          • NordicHeritage

            I have never understood the mentality behind the whole “white privilege” nonsense. I mean these liberal windbags talk about having this white privilege and white guilt but you never see them going to live near or with their “pet projects”.

          • Nick A Siggers

            White privilege does exist – but it’s not the Caucasian race’s fault they have a 30 point IQ advantage.

          I was reading comments on yahoo news over the last few days, on this story and others. I see why they edit them now, because it wouldn’t look much different than here. Every day the good comments mysteriously vanished, but unlike other times, they were replaced with more good comments. Things have permanently changed this summer and post Trayvon, that I am sure.

      • Bon, From the Land of Babble

        Lucky for whom?

      • MikeS

        He didn’t get what he deserved. He’s still alive. This thug should have been given a “third eye” right between the two he already has.

    • Puggg

      “Any comments from Obama, Jackson, Holder?”

      And why are we waiting around for our enemies to help us or speak out on behalf of us?

      Yes, I know, Kirksville, Missouri is that way.

      • Bon, From the Land of Babble

        Well the Rev. Al Sharpton DID comment on Chris Lane’s murder last week:

        Rev. Al Sharpton responded to calls for him to address the Oklahoma murder of Australian student athlete Chris Lane, saying he is not protesting because the killing was not racial and ‘the system worked.’

        Yeah, the system worked all right for him: blacks killing Whites without the media or government interfering!!

        Bon

        • Erasmus

          Too many drugs in his youf is starting to make brofer $harpton look as if he’s going to be knocking on Hell’s door very soon.

          Maybe they’ll give him the room between Trayvon and Teddy Kennedy.

          • Whitetrashgang

            Yeah, I wonder how Ted is getting along with all the diversity down there.

    • John R

      Hate to burst your bubble: But the “teen” wasn’t stopped. He will do SOME time in jail; nothing more. Then he will refine, and improve, his technique later.

      • Oil Can Harry

        If Marvell (is his last name Comics?) thinks his butt is hurting now wait until he does his two years in prison.

    • Tim_in_Indiana

      Thanks for this bit of good news. Another would-be thug stopped. Pity he didn’t join St. Skittles in hell.

      Actually, good thing he didn’t, or this would have been turned into another George Zimmerman case.

      Notice how the assailant tried to lie his way out of it at every turn, until he was finally forced to write a letter of “apology.”

      What a difference between this and the Zimmerman case, where Zimmerman almost ended up surrendering his freedom. If Sir Skittles had lived, perhaps he too would have been forced to write a letter of apology, instead of being turned into the saint and martyr that he was.

      Not that I think the thug in this story is reformed, but hopefully he was wounded badly (and permanently) enough that running away from the police will be extremely difficult from now on.

      • Erasmus

        Let Eric “My people” Holder and Barry Soetero try and make another Zimmerman case out of it. Only the lefty Kool-Aid drinkers are still buying all that “poor-us-we’re-black” k-rap any longer. No one is giving them a pass for all their leftist schit any more.

        The evidence is out there. People see who commits most of the violent crime in this country, and more and more are unafraid to speak the truth about it.

        I am no longer going to be silent. I am tired of hearing of Emmett Till as if it were yesterday that he died, when few know about Channon Christian or Jonathon Foster. I would rather save someone I love and have him or her think me a racist for giving the Derbyshire talk than not give the talk and have him die at the hands of some feral creature who should have been put down long ago.

        The truth will set us free, and the lefties can’t handle the truth. To them it’s like salt to a slug.

    • http://www.amren.com/ Michael Christopher Scott

      At least this one has said he was sorry, instead of trying to explain that the victim stiffed them on a crack deal or called them the N-word.

  • http://twitter.com/AgentAxis D.B. Cooper

    I’m glad this punk is still alive so an example can be made of him. He will be feeling pain in his backside forever.
    Once again, NOTHING on the news.
    Once again, no republicans want to bring up the subject.

    Well, we couldn’t even go one day without a report of a white person getting attacked by a black.
    Even that big mystery cat in Detroit was shot dead.

    • negrolocaust

      yes they did sean hannity discussed at length today at least 6 cases of black on white attacks and even had two guests on to talk about it sean also took zimmermans side from day one and throughout the trial . also michael savage tom marr and les kinsolving of wcbm baltimore talked about the attacks and so are pat mcdonough md legislature who also is introducing a stand your ground law in md and also billy cunningham on the radio wcbm and live on the web every sunday night pat is on at 8 pm saturdays. mark levin has been mostly quiet about it. and rush will just briefly mention these things but sometimes more.

    • Non Humans

      It would have been nice if the victim were a better shot, or would have finished the job. I can’t tell you how many non humans that I’ve xrayed that are full of buckshot. Usually 1 in every 15 or so.
      .
      Everytime that I see it, I know beyond any reasonable doubt, that it was prob from a home invasion/burglary, or less likely, from typical ghetto activities.
      .
      Every time I see it, I wonder why the person with the shotgun failed to save themselves the price of a trial, and the rest of us the burden of the nonhumans medical and welfare bills.

  • anton drexler

    Looks like the intended victim won this knockout game. You got what you had coming to you, Marvell.

    • Oldcorporal

      Actually, Marvell was lucky. There are concealed-carry holders who would have shot him dead, and felt themselves justified.

      • Erasmus

        And millions would have cheered that he’d joined St. Skittles in hell.

        • Bon, From the Land of Babble

          They’d think twice before axing themselves and their fellow thugs: “What wud Trayvon do?”

          • IanJMacDonald

            Trayvon brought Skittles to a gun fight, the poor dumb “urban youth.”

      • negrolocaust

        if they are dead they cannot lie and testify and or sue. also manslaughter is 7 years if you get charged whereas assault is 25 years so its always best to shoot to kill.

    • serious123

      Not quite.

  • Oldcorporal

    OK; we know the perp is black, because his picture is shown. Is the victim White? That remains a mystery — for some reason. If he IS White, is the news source afraid that revealing that might encourage other Whites to defend themselves against these thugs?

    • http://twitter.com/AgentAxis D.B. Cooper

      I can already see it happening. The news will start censoring the victims of black crime if the suspect’s race is known.

      • jane johnson

        That pendulum has swung here in Florida…now we see mugshots of the black perps all the time, but only see the victims (or their hysterical family members) when they are also black.

        • Major

          Better hope the wimps and sharpton mutts in Tampa don’t take down SYG either. I’ve already written Scott that is he bends over on that….he’s out of a job.

    • Bon, From the Land of Babble

      Well, every single documented case of Knockout King/Polar Bear Hunting, from Chicago to Philadelphia, has shown the exact same pattern: blacks going out of their way to target and then beat up, injure and kill Whites .

      Bingo. It is a kind of demented false propaganda game. Every time some degree of truth or honesty is realized a new level of dishonesty must be used to enforce the tribal blackout (pun intended).

      Your comment: Bullseye.

      If he would have succeeded in shocking his victim and then escaping, he would have been a hero for the evening with his homies, and then permanently elevated to a higher status among his fellow simians.

    • Lagerstrom

      What a snivelling little ‘person’, apologised because his little game didn’t have the lethal result that him and his ‘homies’ were after. Pathetic.

  • Jesse James

    OK so let’s make sure you understand the real lesson here, NEVER NEVER turn your back on black youths, male or female. NEVER. Keep your back to a tree or a wall. The progressives have allowed open hunting season on whites through their coddling, excuse making and their agit-prop that keeps the blacks constantly enraged. The government is allowing America to slip into a state of civil war. So far only the blacks and hispanics are waging this insurgency but it can’t go on like this without a stronger response from whites.

  • http://countenance.wordpress.com/ Question Diversity

    It does not appear that the victim could see the weapon that the black was pointing into his side. In my state, the black would be doing a lot more than two years, because the way he acted led the victim to believe that the black had a deadly weapon pointed at him, even though it wasn’t. Certain crimes where a reasonable victim thinks or is made to think that the suspect has a deadly weapon, even if he doesn’t literally, are legally treated as if the suspect actually had a deadly weapon. Even Assault 1 in Missouri is a lot tougher than it seems to be in Michigan: If Missouri’s Assault 1 law existed as-is in Michigan, than the black would be looking at a class B felony, and if he actually would have seriously hurt the victim, and stun guns can do that, it’s a class A felony.

    “The object: Target a innocent victim White for no other reason than they (sic) are there White, then sucker punch him or her.”

    FIXED

    Well, a thugs gotta know his limits — but no happy ending here: The thug survived.

    Bad shot. Practice, then aim center mass.

    And may every single instance of this ‘knockout’ game end with the thug being sent to the morgue.

    40 Caliber S & W Pistol = $900.00

    In this case, it was not worth $900.00; it was PRICELESS.

    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.

    They had discussed what Travon would do!!

    Weaver ran, sat down across the street, his leg going numb, bleeding. Pleading.

    Oh, Boo Hoo Hoo!! HA HA HA!!

    Bon

    • Strider73

      Bad shot. Practice, then aim center mass.

      From what the article says, the victim barely had time to get the one shot off. Hard to take good aim in such a situation. And since the thug had already turned tail, the victim could not legally continue shooting. Even the best self-defense laws require the intended victim to cease fire once the aggressor has started to retreat or otherwise broken off the attack.

      Like everyone else here, I would have preferred a dead thug. Given the circumstances, the best shot would actually have been lower. Had the shooter punched a hole in the femoral artery (either by luck or skill), Marvell the Misfit would have bled to death in about five minutes.

      • BonusGift

        You are right, but I can’t keep the image out of my mind of the victim taking the stun gun out of the knee-grows hand or pocket and then using it him.

    “The 28-year-old …was waiting for his daughter.” The article doesn’t say the daughter’s age but we can assume she was pretty young if dad is 28. Imagine what it would have been like if she had pulled up at the bus stop to find her bloody, beaten, dead father on the sidewalk?

    • BonusGift

      That was the first thought that went through my mind when I first starting reading the story (i.e., how bad would it be for the young daughter to see her father hurt or dead and/or her to get raped – which would have been just par for the course for these sub-humans).

  • Major

    Disgusting. If the victim did not produce a gun this black bastard would have beat him to death. These nigs have very serious lack of conscience, lack of morals, and major impulsivity disorder. They do not think beyond their next breath. Or next violent attack. They do nothing good, bring nothing good to our society. What use are they?

    • LIBERTYSINCURSION

    Good to see this sort of sadistic scum get his comeuppance. This story reminds me of the African morons who attacked a Russian warship, thinking it was an defenseless merchant ship, with hilarious consequences.

  • Nick A Siggers

    The prosecution should have also charged the kid for assault w/ a deadly weapon or the equivalent for the jurisdiction.

    • WhitePiney

      How about conspiracy to aggravated assault the kid admitted he and his friends planned it, should have charged all of the pygmy bastards. Well at least that one will think twice before attacking a white man. He’ll probably go for easier game next time like a senior citizen or children.

      • Nick A Siggers

        Sounds good to me.

  • Evette Coutier

    A 40 cal and a 10mm are two different rounds. You should take the time to look it up before you make incorrect statements. I suppose you think the 3006 and the 308 are the same round because they are both 30 cal.

    Yup. Try to imagine what Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Cornell or Notre Dame would be if they had all black student bodies.

  • ms_anthro

    And we will break their laws and simply not involve the police in incidents like this one. The ghetto rule of “Stop snitchin” will come to White communities, where no one knows anything, no one saw anything. Doors will be closed in their faces.

    In anarcho-tyranny, we can all become outlaws at any time no matter how well-intended and obedient we are. That, of course, is precisely the point of anarchy-tyranny. Selective prosecution is the name of the game. So then the only real strategy to fight back is to refuse to cooperate with the system at all. That day edges ever closer as the system of laws our ancestors invented to protect us from tyranny is being distorted by tyrants to destroy us and our way of life.

He will try this again, and the next white who shoots him will blow his head off.

    Yep, and when the drive everyone else away from the area and the tax base that funds the schools collapse, they wonder why their schools are violent as well as dumps. I am so glad I do not have a child in school, the last thing I want to hear is that he or she was harmed or killed by the blacks because I will find them before the police do.
