A new version of the Knockout Game that involved a stun gun didn’t work out too well for the Lansing, Mich. thug who had planned to use it on his next victim. Instead of punching the victim in the face, he used a taser — a KL-800 Type Stun Gun capable of generating 1.8 million volts. But Marvell Weaver, the intended victim had other ideas.
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.He lived. This happened in May, while the intended victim was picking up his child at a school bus stop. The story came out this week.
According to author Colin Flaherty, the knockout “game” is not random.

In Oklahoma, an accused killer of the Australian college student Chris Lane tweeted that he was “playing golf” and hitting “woods” prior to the murder earlier this month. Woods is short for “peckerwoods:” White people. The Knockout Game..........
