INTENDED KNOCKOUT GAME VICTIM SHOOTS BACK
WND ^ | 08/27/13 | Colin Flaherty

Posted on 08/28/2013 1:46:02 PM PDT by Anila

The newspaper in Lansing, Mich., came so close to getting it right: An intended victim of the Knockout Game pulled a gun and shot at his attacker. So far so good.

This version of the game had a twist: Instead of punching the victim in the face, the predator used a taser – a KL-800 Type Stun Gun capable of generating 1.8 million volts.

The assailants had scouted the site, the victim and even practiced firing the taser. But then it all went wrong. Or right.

When Marvell Weaver jammed the taser into the ribs of the still unidentified man and pulled the trigger, it jammed. The target pulled out his .40 caliber Smith and Wesson and shot Weaver as he tried to escape to the getaway van where two of his accomplices waited.

According to MLive.com:

“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.

Don't know about Michigan, but in California shooting a fleeing perp is grounds for being charged with attempted murder.

It’s too bad he didn’t rapidly shoot him several times (”until the threat was neutralized”). A second thought shot between the eyes would have been deserved, but wouldn’t pass judicial muster.

If the taser had worked, and the guy was on the ground, there’s a good chance the whole team would have laughingly worked him over as they robbed him.

Never bring a taser to a gunfight.

If it was me, the bullet would have gone into his head, followed by another and another. Because I was scared and the animal said he was gonna kill me and he reached for another weapon and I felt that my life was threatened, etc.

I think it's pretty much the same in every State.

Once the perp is no longer a threat, self defense becomes moot.

Doesn't mean he is less deserving in my book, but the law doesn't see it that way...unfortunately.

Right - victims fault. He should have let the kid beat him to a pulp first before firing. Sleazy lawyer will argue the kid was just foolin’ -

I don’t know why I did that

Considering the room temperature IQ of most of these "teens" this is probably a true statement.

This also raises an important question. If these "teens" have such little cognitive ability that they operate purely on instinct and emotion, acting out on a whim and posing a mortal threat to everyone around them should why should they be allowed to roam freely, let alone vote and operate heavy machinery.

And taken his own gun and shot him with it while he was incapacitated.

Right - but I was thinking of this case and what some defense lawyer would come up with as an argument to get his client acquitted.

““‘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.”

It should be perfectly legal to kill this animal right in the street.

Don't know about Michigan, but in California shooting a fleeing perp is grounds for being charged with attempted murder.

Not much longer and California is going to crumble. Of all the States, California is the closes to a communists controlled environment in the United States.

All the shooter has to do is say "I heard him say, 'I'm gonna go get my gun', so I shot him to prevent him from getting his weapon."

How does anyone know what the perp was going to do? He could have been running to get a gun or other weapon.
