    Shotgun: A weapon that can be very devastating from close ranges, or slightly longer ranges if loaded with heavy shot or slugs. Bird shot and rock salt entered my body from fifty feet or so several times over the years (especially when I was young and stupid, and liked to steal watermelons)...The hits that are unsurvivable are close range...Things can just about cut you in half.

    Makes you appreciate how screwed the world is in some places. People are killing innocent strangers to join a gang. What is the benefit? If you need an initiation to show loyalty or guts, make it robbing a bank or something. At least then you have something to show for it. What is the point in taking a life?

    The shooter`s family cheered him on...well that explains it.

    I`m thankful that a kid like Ross is alive while the shooter is in prison for the next 30+ years.

    That was so sad, I can`t believe these kids were only 15 when this happened.

    I did laugh a little when he said the shooter kid came to court in a purple suit, top hat and cane. WTF.

    Wow, that`s one drated up story. It makes sense that lowlife families like that would cheer the guy on, with absolutely no sense of empathy for the other person. I`m glad the judge did an epic speech and sentenced him severely. Now he won`t get out until he`s over 50 years old. The only thing missing were the words "May God have mercy upon your soul." bu I guess that`s mainly for the death sentence. lol

    Kid sure has resolve though.

    I can bet, Mr. Purple suit will say his farts don`t make sounds any more, and that his new 350lb husband named Daisy doesn`t like him talking to the press.

    i hope that he was only shot with bird shot, id imagine that any kind of buck would have taken his entrails and ripped them out of his body at point blank range.

    Man, I`m impressed with this kid and honestly his whole family. If my son had been shot by some little bastard like that and his family had shown up to court cheering about it, I`d probably burn down their drating houses one night and do my damnedest to take out their whole ignorant brood in one fell swoop. The world would be a better place for it, that`s for sure.

    This kid is a badass.

    And he`s a better man than I.

    Had this happened to me, I would have sent Purple Suit to jail (just so I could make the "bet your assh*le is squeaky clean, ain`t it?" comments), then proceeded to burn down his family`s homes, get myself sent to the same jail, and stab Purple Suit through every major joint.

    Make sure to completely ruin his arms so if he HAPPENED to survive, he wouldn`t be able to hold a shotgun anymore. Or defend himself from the Bubbas.

    Give me a good, Goddamn reason why we didn`t just kill the son of a whore that shot him? String that piece of crap up with his own guts and to hell with anyone that thinks he`s worth keeping around.

    Aww. Pretty scary but it was an enjoyable and inspirational video.

    The kid had to kill a random person to join a gang, so he decides to kill his friend of 10 years. Enjoy 35 years of prison rape, kid. We`ll see you when you`re 50.

    Just so you guys know, this documentary came from a skateboarding site called theberrics. usually they would come out with a documentary called aberrican me every week which would deal with inspiring stories related to skateboarding, this is definitely the most inspiring one. i`m surprised this made it to iab cause ive been going to iab when im bored for about 6 years now since i was in middle school and going to theberrics.com ever since i started skating about 4 years ago so this video being on this site makes it even more inspiring

    There are 2 court records for a juvenile being sentenced to 30-40 years in Michigan from 2007-2010.

    This video is the only record to be found of this event.

    @Cajun247 "Sounds like Birdshot."

    I`m guessing you didn`t watch the whole thing, they show an x-ray full of bb`s. Also he mentions coughing up some.

    Wow, what a story, brings out so much emotion.

    After watching this a second time, does anyone get the feeling his story is fictional?
    The only news this shows up as is the video itself. I guess maybe it didn`t make the news, but then his hand got blown off and while the scars seem minimal perhaps they healed well, but in his story, he switches between his hand being fixed to it not being fixed. It also seems far fetched that the kid walked in in a pimp suit and his family was in the court room "crowd" hooting and hollering.

    I`m just saying I`m skeptical. Maybe I`m wrong.

    @EgalM, It was obviously birdshot from the xray.
    @Biship, Seems quite possible that the kid was charged as an adult.
