More of this, and the problem will soon solve itself.
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.
Tough shit for him, a fine example pour encourager les autres. More rich buttery goodness:
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.
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.
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.
Shoulda stayed there in the first place, ya punk-ass bitch. Glenn puts the cherry on top:
And if your teenager gets shot while carrying out this kind of assault? He deserved it, and you’re a bad parent for not raising him better. Don’t complain about the gun laws. Hide your face in shame.
Damned skippy, right down the line. The old biker motto applies, here as in so many other places: don’t start no shit, won’t be no shit.
