    A game called "Point-em-out, Knock-em-out" has made its way to
    Lansing, and it's exactly how it sounds. The game consists of someone
    being randomly targeted, then attacked.
    It's a game that has been growing with popularity on the
    internet, with teenagers filming themselves punching unsuspecting
    victims. Lansing had its first case of the game brought to light this
    summer, but it's possible that it has been happening under the radar for
    months.


    On February 26th a man waiting for his six-year-old
    daughter to be dropped off from school, had no idea he would be the
    city's first reported victim.
    "I saw the van circle twice, and the second time three kids
    came out. I didn't suspect anything. I hadn't any enemies, or any
    reason to believe they would be looking to do anything to me."
    We are not revealing the victim's identity for his protection.

    The victim was attacked by 17-year-old Marvell Weaver. But Weaver
    did more than try to knock his victim out, he tried to do it with a
    taser. Luckily for the victim, the taser didn't work and he was able to
    protect himself with his concealed-carry .40 caliber pistol.
    "He shoved something into my side. I wasn't sure what it
    was. It had some force to it. I wasn't sure if it was a knife or a gun,"
    said the victim.
    Weaver was shot twice, in the leg and an inch away from his
    spine. He's been sentenced to a year in jail for the attack, but he
    admits he's getting off easy.
    "It was just a lesson learned. I wish I hadn't played the game at all," said Weaver.


    But Weaver say's this wasn't the first time he'd played it.
    Before he was caught, he and his friends had attacked random people on
    several occasions.
    "Not many, six or seven. It wouldn't be an every day game,
    just a certain game to be played on certain days. You don't even try to
    rob them or anything. That's the game," said Weaver.
    Weaver says it's not gang related, teens are playing it
    because they're bored. Plus, they've been seeing others doing it and
    getting away with it on the internet.
    He says he used to play it because he was usually dared, while high and with a bad group of friends.


    "They weren't my normal group of friends. Someone just
    throws it out there and people go along with it. One thing leads to
    another and it just goes all down hill," said Weaver.
    Weaver said they liked to target crowds because it would be
    easier for them to get away. It could be played during the day or
    night, and it didn't matter who the victim was, man or woman, old or
    young; anyone could be a potential target.
    He had no idea that playing it would one day almost cost him his life, and land him in jail.


    "There's a price to pay if they wind up doing it. A good example is
    Marvell Weaver," said Officer Robert Merritt, with Lansing P.D.
    Lansing police are keeping an eye out for others playing
    the game. Depending on the severity, an attack could be considered a
    felony.
    "It's just senseless. Teenagers have a lot better things to do with their time," said Merritt.


    Senseless, and full of unpredictable consequences.


    "What they tried to do to me wouldn't have been a joke if
    they would've succeeded. My child would've been left with the aftermath
    of seeing her father in any type of way I would've been left," said
    Weaver's victim.

    Howard would dispatch Jason Statham with his invisible ninjas to handle this Italian thuggery, Robin.

    I love how knocking unsuspecting people right-the-fuck-out is referred to as a "game" for the fucking miscreant enwurds. Some society we live in.

    How long do you think it would be called a 'game' if the roles were reversed?
    You know...white thugs just strolling up to unsuspecting black folks going about their daily business and knocking them the fuck out.
    The media really is fucked. How can they just keep calling it that??!!

    PS. I hope this is the beginning of a trend.

    You just know the outraged epic news story is coming though where some guy shoots a 'poor innocent' black kid before the kid has a chance
    to take his swing. Queue up the wailing fat ladies.
