    Teen checks for concealed weapon before punching victim in knockout game

    The victim told police that he believed the boys were playing the “knockout game.” He said he was approached on the beach by one of the boys who asked him if he had a “Glock.” The man was punched after admitting that he was unarmed.

    The “knockout game” has grown in popularity among teenagers across the country. The object of the “game” is to knock a stranger unconscious. In several instances, victims have been severely injured or have died.

    An element of self-defense satisfied; be in reasonable fear of great bodily harm.

    Interesting, to say the least; it SEEMS as if JUST MAYBE the prospect of an armed victim was POSSIBLY deterring the assailants just a little bit. [heavy, dripping sarcasm]

    Fearing that the boy would continue to hit him until he was unconscious, the man grabbed at a folding knife that he had tucked into his waistband and pretended to have a gun. The boys fled, and the man enlisted the help of his neighbor to search for the boys.
    And it SEEMS as if JUST MAYBE the prospect of an armed victim was POSSIBLY what scared off the assailants, just a little bit. [more heavy, dripping sarcasm]
