A 31-year-old gang member fatally wounded himself today as he was cleaning a firearm while intoxicated, Fresno police said. It is the second time in just over two weeks that a gang member suffered self-inflicted gunshot wounds.

"On Jan. 31, officers went to Community Regional Medical Center where a gang member told them that he was walking near Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and East Eugenia Avenue when someone shot him in the foot.
The officers determined, however, that he had shot himself near Ashlan and Marks Avenue. The gang member was arrested on suspicion of being an ex-felon in possession of a loaded or stolen handgun and several other weapons- elated charges."
It is nice to have some good news.
What a darn shame — that only one gang member helped cleanse the gene pool.
Thanks, needed the feel-good after the announcement that we will officially be a socialist state.
I have never had such good news just to bad the other one didn’t bite the dust..
I kind of felt that people needed something to smile about today.
A gangbanger cleaning a gun?
Thats gotta be a first.
Even money his family tells the press his life was just turning around for the better.
He was an Honor Student, you freakin’ cynic.
Just tragic! A potential member of Obama’s civil defense force bites the dust!
“He was a good boy, a really nice person.”
LOL - the classic line - “I’m trying to get my life together.”
........and nothing of value was lost. /s
He’ll still get confirmed won’t he?
(Sure he’s gotta be anti-gun in the Obama administration, but that don’t mean he can’t have his own. Geitner’s pro-tax, right?)
Yer killin me - LOL. “He was such a role model. Gentle, caring, and the children looked up to him.”
Yeah you are probably right..I wonder what happened to those little black thugs that was on that vidio..We will soon find out more than likely..Hitlers gang will be marching soon..
‘nothing of value was lost’
Bullets cost money. Too bad it wasn’t a knife accident.
If only he’d waited to clean it a month from now Hussein would have outlawed all guns.
That was my first thought. What the hell is he doing cleaning a gun?
Job opening at ACORN.
The scroat died of a leg wound (just dam’n!) — rotten luck for him.
I wonder whether it was blood loss, infection, or shock. Most gunshot wounds to the leg are survivable if adequate first aid is sought and applied.
I guess the gangs are short of medics, ay. That’s a dumb oversight.
And at 31-years old, what’s this scroat doing belonging to a gang? Isn’t he a bit old for that? And shouldn’t he know, by 31 years of age, never to drink while handling firearms? And in a gun-culture society like the US, shouldn’t he also know, at 31 years of age, how to safely clean a gun, without shooting himself in the leg???
Hell’s bells, they are making Crims and Scroats stupider these days!
Prayers for a misguided soul.
That’s getting pretty old for a gang member.
Especially one who’s not in prison.
“I wonder whether it was blood loss, infection, or shock. Most gunshot wounds to the leg are survivable if adequate first aid is sought and applied.”
Probably blood loss/shock judging from the article. He likely hit a major blood vessel. You don’t have long if you clip a femoral artery. What would be ironic is if he used a cell phone to call 911 and was too drunk to give coherent directions. Darwin wins again.
Just doing the job an American wouldn’t do...

Breaks my heart, that does. Just breaks my heart...
Community Policing at its best!
Let me guess, he was a loving and devoted father and his children (all 11) will sorely miss him.
