'Point 'em out, knock 'em out': Attacker shot by concealed weapon holder could have charge erased



A 17-year-old Lansing teen charged in the random attack of a man who

shot him with his concealed handgun could have the conviction wiped from

his public record.


Under an agreement with the Ingham County Prosecutor's Office,

Marvell Weaver pleaded guilty Wednesday to illegal possession of a stun

gun in the May 29 incident.




The felony charge carries a maximum two-year prison sentence. But

under the plea deal, Assistant Prosecutor Danielle Dixon said her office

would not take a position on Weaver’s petition for an exemption that

allows teens 17 to 21 to have convictions expunged once a sentence is

successfully served.


The prosecutor's office declined further comment on the plea agreement.


Ingham County Circuit Judge William Collette could still deny the petition. Sentencing was set for Oct. 2.


Collette asked Weaver why he attacked the 28-year-old Lansing man.


“Were you mad at him or just having fun?" the judge said.


“More like just having fun,” Weaver said quietly.


Weaver was with three other teens, when they decided to play a game called “point ‘em out, knock ‘em out.”


The game involves ambushing a random victim, often using fists, but in this case Weaver had a KL-800 Type Stun Gun.




He did not know his victim was carrying a legally concealed .40-caliber Smith and Wesson loaded with 10 rounds.


The stun gun did not work. The victim fired one round into the teen’s buttocks.


“It happened so fast I wasn’t sure,” the victim told police,

according to a police transcript. “I just know something was shoved into

my side. I wasn’t sure if it was a knife, if it was anything.”


Weaver ran, sat down across the street, his leg going numb, and sat down.


“‘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 should have thought it out BEFORE he got involved in this idiocy.


The man called 911. He told the dispatcher the teen was "terminally wounded" and that he was a concealed pistol holder.


"Did you shoot him?" the dispatcher asks.


This is a recording of the 911 call. The audio breaks off as the man deals with events, but his father also calls police.

There is an ancient Buddhist proverb about teens, and their choices that goes something like


Act like a dumbass, get a numb ass.........or sometin' like that

They ought to give the judge some time out.


He provides the perp with an acceptable excuse, "or were you just having fun". Then he accepts the provided 'they were just playing' excuse as truth.


Nobody knows if that group of "playful young men" really were just out sporting about. If the stun gun had worked, they wouldn't have then playfully robbed the guy, would they? Anything in their actions provide reasonable doubt they hadn't planned to rob the guy in the first place?

The question the judge should have asked is, "After you knocked him out with the stun gun and robbed him, what other felonious activities did you have planned?"


A good interrogator always asks open-ended questions. You never know where these mental midgets will take you in their answers!

He could have been Obama's son too. :rolleyes:


Yeah, why not!? Could even be. Barry Soetoro already has one illigitimate son that we know of and he's not too bright, either.

Considering where the jerk was shot, he might have had brain damage.
