Teen Playing ´Knockout Game´
Shot Twice by Victim

Breitbart Big Government, by AWR Hawkins

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/22/2013 3:07:39 AM

A teen playing the "Knockout Game" in Lansing, Michigan unwittingly targeted a concealed carry permit holder and was shot twice. He survived and is now in jail. As Breitbart News previously reported, the "Knockout Game" thrives in areas where victims are unarmed. In the "game," teens approach a stranger on the sidewalk or in an alley and punch the stranger in an attempt to knock him or her out. A punch that results in a knockout scores one point. WILX in Lansing reported that teenager Marvell Weaver, who is black, tried to knock out a father who was standing at

Why are these judges giving just one year in jail for an admitted multiple offender? This is a race based hate crime!
If white teens were targeting and knocking out black or hispanic adults in multiple cities around the country, it would be on the news every day and the justice department would be getting involved.

A black attempting to knock out a ´polar bear´. No racism here. Turn it around though and if the ´polar bear´ had killed the black, it would be racism. I´m really, really surprised the ´polar bear´ wasn´t arrested anyway.

Who says Michigan is lost?? Not too many "players" in the ole "knockout game" in Detroit or any part of Michigan, because even thugs aren´t THAT dumb. BTW, why not call it what it really is: a gang of cowardly-trayvon-obama-lookalikes out hunting "polar bears"? "knockout game" sounds like a child´s game, and the viciousness of the vermin out there is hardly a "game".

The assault on the second amendment drawing to its logical conclusion: free and open assault on citizens.

This is exactly the kind of crap we can expect going forward as our federal and state governments make it near impossible to carry concealed.

I wasn´t able to find the news I was looking for on this but the Breitbart article has a serious deficiency: No date. Thre was an attack jjust like this 3-6 months ago and I think this was it, seeing as the perp is already sentenced... can´t tell why this is just making the rounds now.

On Drudge there IS a recent self defense story. It´s about a 60 year old woman who got her gun ready when she was that she was being looked at by 7 black teens. She was hit once, pulled her gun and shot 5 times. Two perps are dead.

Rules of journalism should always apply. Who, what, when, where, why. You may keep the ´victim´ anonymous... but the ´when´ MUST be there.

BINGO! #s 12 and 13.

Last sentence: Weaver is now serving one year in jail.

The article didn´t make sense for news in real time.

This didn´t just happen yesterday. Why are we just now hearing about it? I would say we all have a pretty good idea of why we didn´t hear about it when it happened.

Lansing, Michigan covered it up as best they could. The fact that Weaver survived helped in the cover-up.

Weaver admitted to 6 or 7 other attacks. We didn´t hear about those, either.

I despise the Communist Media.

This item was released because Knockout has reached media proportions.
Maybe if it had been publicized sooner we could have saved a few victims.

Trayvon Martin was playing a version of this when he circled back - instead of going to the condo where his father´s "fiancee" lived - and suckerpunched George Zimmerman. He was a fan of this per his social networking messages and photos on his iPhone and online. He was also a fan of mixed martial arts, which he employed once GZ was on the ground.

One photo or video on his phone dowed other youths taking down a homeless man. One of the elements of the knockout is that someone else records the event and then it is posted online

Yesterday, on another thread, I posted the following reply, which I believe is even more appropriate today:

Just watch! The number of Concealed Carry Permits are going to go through the roof. I’m referring to “Self-Issued” Concealed Carry Permits, of course.

I predict that many handgun owners, whose permits are not of the “Concealed Carry” variety, will nevertheless begin carrying their weapons concealed, in spite of the illegality of their actions. Every human being’s strongest instinct is self-preservation.

If I am not mistaken, this happened last February. I could be wrong about the date but in any case, while I like to hear about it, it does not qualify as news. Just another case of the media lying by omission. Unfortunately, it´s Breitbart this time.

See, the problem here is that most of the punchers are unarmed. So if they´re shot BEFORE doing significant injury, the shooter is in for a world of legal trouble, but if the shooter waits, he may land up unconscious. I´m all for blowing these punks away, but the first one that gets shot without a taser in his hand will be Trayvon redux.

Situational awareness is key. Move away from any group of black teens. If they then come near enough to punch, at least you can argue pursuit and disparity of force in your legal defense.

I am offended that the media uses words like ´teen´ and ´game´.
These are a criminal element doing dangerous life threatening acts on the public.
A shoot to kill decree should be offered or defend yourself with any means possible.
Remember Bernard Goetz how he handled the thugs but I do think he got sued by one who survived.
This is some good news but I´m sorry the ´teen´ survived.

Is everyone here aware that Knockout was what Traygone was probably "playing" when he sucker punched GZ? Am I the only one who has been unaware of that for going on two years?

I read the Cashill article earlier. Obviously before my second cup of coffee gave my brain the jolt it needed.

Reading the comments here, I´m just now connecting up the fact that this "game" has been going on a lot longer than has been reported -a LOT longer.

Traygone has been Gone coming up on two years. In all of the reading that I did during the run-up to the trial, I do not recall ever seeing Knockout mentioned.

I´ve only been hearing about Knockout for perhaps a month, and only because FOX is reporting it. I don´t remember seeing it in print, and certainly no on the air.

I´ve been hearing about hate crime attacks by black mobs on whites, but not this one-on-one Knockout crime.

The Communist Media has sure covered up well for the 0mugabe Look-Alikes.

Re those terms are accurate.

The perps are teens - between 13 and 19 - and to them it is indeed a game. Something done for sport and recorded and posted online by a friend/accomplice. They get points for each knockout.

Sad but true.

Maybe it´s time to dig out the old VCR tape of Death Wish 3, which was far more of a comedy than a drama. At first, Paul Kersey takes parecl post delivery of a .475 Wildey magnum (Kersey: "A .475 Wildey magnum is a shorter version of the African big game cartridge, it makes a real mess"). The Giggler would to his eternal regret go up against Kersey´s Wildey and finish second. The police chief (the ubiquitous Ed Lauter), looking at the Giggler´s well-plugged remains, says, "Jeez, there´s not much left of him."

Then Kersey upgrades his weaponry, the better to deal with gang leader Mandy Fraker--yes, that´s his real name!--and his integrated Rainbow Goon Squad. Oh, Mandy!

Rodriguez (Rodriguez is Kersey´s neighbor, whose wife was murdered by Fraker´s gang.): [to Kersey, about the package just arrived in the mail] "What is it?"

Paul Kersey: "A LAWS missile launcher. Anti tank, anti personnel. These rounds are self propelling, armour piercing. The round arms three feet out of the barrel. Won´t do me much good though, unless I can get them bunched...."

Rodriguez: "All I got is a zip gun."

Paul Kersey: "Well, we should get a few of them...."

Hate to spoil the ending for you, but they do get quite a few of them. They also employ an M-60 machine gun with long belts (probably the whole nine yards) of .30 caliber ammo. Hey, it´s New Yawk, where almost nobody claims to have military weaponry, but does. But what else would you expect from the ultra-resourceful Paul Kersey?

Somewhere I read a report that several of the knockout victims in New York were orthodox Jews, so police are treating those attacks as hate crimes. I heartily agree.

But isn´t any attack by a group of blacks on a white, Asian, or Hispanic person a hate crime? Especially when they call it "hunting polar bears?"

First of all, this is not a "game". It´s "premeditated assault with intent to do great bodily harm."

Secondly, Sean Hannity reported today that four people have been killed in these assaults.

Now you can call it "premeditated murder".

Finally, if there ever was a case for preserving the Second Amendment and concealed carry this is it.

We now have packs of feral black male teenagers roaming in public assaulting people, most of them racially profiled "Polar Bears", and proudly posting their crime on U-Tube.

Anarchy anyone? Jesse? Al? Black leaders?

Mr. President, where are you?

OK, finish your putt but please tell us what you´re doing about this.

Whatever happened to police decoys? Have ´em pose as vulnerable or indigents and wander the streets. When the COWARDLY perps come along and try their luck, police need to defend themselves and then arrest the vermin. Trouble comes when the police fill out their reports which show that 98% of the perps are blacks assaulting whites. That´s when that decoy program fades away under protests of "profiling". If authorities and media continue to pooh-pooh these assaults can vigilantes be far behind?

My point was that to these young thugs this IS a game. A sport. A contest. Their scorecards and substantiating videos are posted online and texted and tweeted around.
For that reason it is proliferating. Spreading.

If we deny that that is what is going on here, what they think they are doing, we miss the point. They must be stopped.

The best way to end knock out is to wound prosecute and imprison.
Jail for under 16 and real prison up to 6 months for older wanabe bad butts.
Real prison bad butts will teach them some real lessons about being the victims of injustice..
The black leaders don´t have another martyr to cry over and use to wreck the 2nd ammendment.

AUGUSTA, Ga.— Bubba Watson has won the Masters for the second time in three years. Watson claimed another green jacket by shooting a 3-under 69 in the final round Sunday, fending off Jordan Spieth’s bid to become the youngest major champion since 1931. The 20-year-old Texan led by two shots heading to the eighth hole, but the tournament changed suddenly. Watson made two straight birdies, Spieth took back-to-back bogeys — and just like that, Watson was up by two strokes at the turn. The left-hander led the rest of the way, adding to the 2012 title he won in more

The military is taking steps to prepare women for combat roles in 2016. The Marine Corps announced that it would give young female lieutenants who wash out of the grueling Infantry Officer Course a second shot, same as their male counterparts. The Army is conducting a study to test just how fit a soldier has to be to engage in combat. The study involves 60 women and 100 men. CBS News reported on both developments last week. The Marine Corps announcement came after Marine 2nd Lt. Sage Santangelo took the Infantry Officer Court and wrote about her experience last month

It’s DUMBO — really DUMBO! Crafty hobos are turning the Manhattan Bridge into a veritable shantytown, complete with elaborate plywood shacks that are truly “must see to believe.” One of the coffin-sized living spaces — which have been built into the bridge frame near the Manhattan entrance — is secured with a flimsy bike lock and bolted to a metal beam by its inhabitant. The pods are built into the underside of the upper deck, below car traffic but above the subway and bike lanes. To reach his makeshift studio, the bridge dweller — a stocky, neatly dressed Chinese man

Moving Day at The Masters included 20-year-old golfer Jordan Spieth rising up the leaderboard to finish in 1st place alongside Bubba Watson. Saturday was an excellent opportunity for apparel manufacturer Under Armour to take center stage, with logos positioned all over Spieth’s sprawling body. The brand’s opportunity to be featured on air will only be enhanced in the Final Round with Spieth attempting to become the youngest player to win The Masters, besting a 21-year-old Tiger Woods who first won the tournament in 1997. Speaking of Tiger, he is noticeably absent from this year’s Masters Tournament. Rory McIlroy

Veteran investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson resigned from CBS News after 20 years with the network, expressing frustration at being unable to get her stories on air. Following Attkisson’s resignation, the folks at Fox News’ “Media Buzz” expressed dissatisfaction at the state of journalism in America’s newsrooms and the culture of liberal bias that exists. Appearing on the program on Sunday March 16th, the entire panel acknowledged the disturbing trend of journalists putting their politics above journalism with host Howard Kurtz observing that Attkisson felt it “was almost impossible to get these tougher pieces on the air.” As the segment began,

Today, the image would have gone viral in an instant: The president of the United States, dripping wet in swim trunks before a throng of excited beachgoers, trading a look and a laugh with an attractive woman in a polka-dot bikini. But well before the Internet´s relentless rationing of spontaneous fame, the 1962 photo of President Kennedy at Santa Monica´s beach made quite a splash. For a Los Angeles woman named Eva Ban, its effect lasted a lifetime. Ban was the woman in the two-piece swimsuit, which was called a bikini in news accounts but was modest by today´s standards.

The Washington Free Beacon has compiled the video below of Harry Reid chanting “Koch brothers” 134 times on the Senate floor. It has a formulaic quality, like the phrases Homer hold in reserve to fill out dactylic hexameter lines in the Iliad and the Odyssey. What “wine-dark sea” was to Homer, “Koch brothers” is to Harry Reid. (Video) Reid, however, isn’t in search of a metrical line to fill out a great poem. He is simply executing the latest Democratic campaign to stigmatize private citizens in the service of his partisan political purposes. When Reid took to the floor of

Catherine Engelbrecht became the face of the IRS scandal with her riveting testimony before Congress on how her group True the Vote was targeted by the IRS for selective persecution and harassment. (Video) Recently, it was discovered that Democratic Congressman Elijah Cummings had a hand in the IRS targeting True the Vote. You might remember Cummings as the grandstanding Democrat who railed against Darrell Issa’s investigation of the scandal after a Congressional hearing with IRS official Lois Lerner had closed (and then implied that Issa was racist): Further making the situation ironic and unsightly for justice-avoiding Democrats

A group of Asian Americans is starting a grassroots effort to garner support for the Republican Party and its candidates, saying the GOP most closely aligns with their core values including family, education and entrepreneurship. The group, the Asian Republican Coalition, is co-founded by international investment banker John Ying, who during the 2012 presidential election cycle served on the Republican National Finance Committee. “We need a forum, and this first step will go a long way,” Ying told FoxNews.com earlier this week. He hopes the effort, which will include a May 6 kickoff event at the Newseum in Washington, D.C.,

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
