You don’t join a gang because you are intelligent and have career options in life. You join a gang because you’re an idiot who can’t grasp that “thug life” is only going to lead you to an early grave, or to a government-mandated dating program where a larger, strong inmate is going to name you “Sally.”

The most recent rocket scientist to figure this out in Fresno, California, is Sally- er, Randy Mcbride.

Randy McBride's delicate features are sure to be a hit in the California prison system.

What did Mr. Mcbride did to earn the attention of the Fresno PD? Not much, other than nearly neutering himself with a sawed-off shotgun:

Police Sgt. Tony Bustos said officers were sent to investigate a report of shots fired and found Randy Mcbride, 28, who had sustained a gunshot wound in the leg.

Bustos said officers determined Mcbride was inside a home when he heard gunshots nearby. He put a sawed-off shotgun in his pants and went outside to investigate. While trying to draw the weapon, he pulled the trigger and the shot struck his leg. Mcbride, who Bustos said is an Asian Boyz gang member, was treated for his injuires at Community Regional Medical Center.

Police later found the shotgun hidden in the backyard of the residence, Bustos said.

Mcbride faces charges of being a felon in possession of a firearm and possession of a sawed-off shotgun, a federal offense.

It was the second night in a row that the Fresno PD responded to calls of a gang-banging idiot shooting himself.  Edgar Navarro-Chavoya was apparently drinking after a threatening another man with a revolver in what was described as a road rage incident. He then shot himself in the leg while playing with the gun. He faces a multitude of charges as well.

Keep growing them dumb, Fresno.

The prison guards appreciate the job security.
