Teen Trying to Leave Gang Is Shot 15 Times, Survives
Newser ^ | 02/27/2013 | By Evann Gastaldo

(Newser) – An Atlanta teen who wanted to leave a gang was shot 15 times—and survived. The 19-year-old "told the other members of the gang, 'Hey, look, I want to go straight, be law-abiding,' and they weren't happy with it," says a US marshal, adding, "Never since I've been in law enforcement have I seen someone shot 15 times and live." The teen was left for dead, but was helped by people who saw him crawling and heard his moans; they're now in protective custody, Fox Atlanta reports.

A relative says he is recovering after surgery. Authorities have arrested a 16- and 19-year-old in the shooting. They're apparently confirmed members of the Young Mob gang, which has this foreboding motto: You stay in until you die.

Isn't 19 years old the life expectancy of a gang member?

Or if they live past 20, then must be in prison already.

This confirms my hypothesis that gangbangers are lousy shots.

I wonder if he plans on returning the bullets.

That’s utterly impossible, no one needs that many bullets, ever, in a gun.

Just ask our president or mayor Bloomberg.

My thoughts exactly.
These gangs have the same motto and the same , uhhh,
“requirements” as the cult of Radical Islam.
No way out.
This kid was the ultimate Infidel, so he paid the price.

Come to think of it, it’s no different from the other “My way or
the highway” approaches to submission, examples of which we
get literally daily from our Dictator/President.
Obama is turning America to a Roach Motel.

I always wonder if these gangbangers are shooting wally world target ammo or wad cutters. I can’t imagine that 15 gold dots would fail to do the trick, even in .380

They are because they insist on holding the gun sideways. There was an incident a few years ago here in New York city where a gangbanger tried to take a few shots at a cop, and with a Tec-9 no less. Only he was holding it sideways which jammed the gun after the first shot when the shell tried to eject. Guess what happened next? He received the skill of being able to hold his breath forever.

Well, just think. With mandatory PreK, they can form gangs at an even younger age. Obama is always thinking about community organizing.

What? you mean gang members have guns?
Surely they will turn in their “assault weapons” high capacity magazines and rush to obey all the laws that are already here and are coming.

Surely the dems don’t want to leave guns in the hands of the poor downtrodden oppressed and take them away from honest law-abiding non-violent citizens.

Silly people. The gang didn’t shoot him 15 times, the gun did.

Prayers up for this young man.

I hope he realizes that God spared him for a reason.

“I hope he realizes that God spared him for a reason.”

If he ever comes around to believing, he’d have one powerful testimony.

Boy’s got a new street handle;

SWISS CHEEZE! Just call him Cheezer for short, or Swiss Miss.

I can hear the groans all the way to da Burgh.

I’ll stop now.

You took the words out of my mouth. Plus whatever happened to “see you guys tomorrow” and then leaving on the midnight bus to Birmingham.?

“An Atlanta teen who wanted to leave a gang was shot 15 times—and survived.”

The young lad has the Lord looking out for him or he’s a sponge capable of absorbing 9mm rounds. If I were him, I’d trust more in the Lord than the idea of owning a fantastical superhero physique.

He can either leave the evil obuma hood and start a new life or join the Marine Corps and invite his fire team to enjoy a night in the hood and take revenge.

Leaving is easier and a better choice.

Go west, young man.

Indeed. When I typed my comment, I envisioned him speaking to young people.

“If he ever comes around to believing, he’d have one powerful testimony”

You are right! Obviously satan REALLY wanted this boy dead, there must be a reason for the “inneffective” overkill. God REALLY wants this boy to live.

Prayers for this kid, I too hope he doesn’t waste his second chance.

To everyone else saying, (and I am paraphrasing here) :”gangbanger’s can’t shoot”, “need a bigger caliber”, “different ammo”, etc. It just wasn’t this kids time to go. I believe if they would have shot this kid with a CANNON that night, he would have lived.
