Cardella's plan backfired, so to speak.
Jordan Cardella's plan was almost perfect. He needed attention and sympathy from his ex-girlfriend. His friend had a rifle.

If it's not obvious what the next step is, yes, Jordan Cardella asked a friend to shoot him so he could get a hospital visit from his ex-girlfriend. Not only did that not work, but now Cardella, 20, has gotten his friends in trouble for agreeing to shoot him.

At a recent sentencing hearing for Cardella's friend Michael Wezyk, the facts of the case were overwhelming to Milwaukee County Assistant District Attorney Christopher Rawsthorne, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

"This," Rawsthorne said, "has to be the most phenomenally stupid case that I have seen. It's unbelievable what happened here."
Cardella's story, detailed by Journal-Sentinel columnist Jim Stingl, is straight out of a B-movie romantic comedy.

The heartbroken Cardella didn't want to shoot himself because, as a felon, he's not allowed to handle firearms. Instead, he asked 24-year-old Michael Wezyk to shoot him with his rifle.

Cardella, Wezyk, and another friend, Anthony Woodall, 20, drove to a spot on the street in South Milwaukee to stage their fake gunfight. Cardella asked Wezyk to shoot him three times in the back, which sounds like overkill -- or just "kill" -- for a sympathy plea. Wezyk chose the arm as his target.

"Wezyk then shot Cardella in the arm, and Cardella immediately slumped over," according to the complaint. "He asked to be shot again, but Wezyk stated, 'I'm done.'"

Both Wezyk and Woodall were sentenced to two years of probation and 100 hours of community service for their role.

That was ridiculous. He wasn't thinking at all. It isn't love it's obsession. His friend also should not have done it. Instead of teaching his friend , he did what his friend wants and didn't think twice.

That was stupid of Cardella asking his friends to shoot him for the sake of getting his ex-girlfriend. He doesn't even considered on what will be its cause to his friends.He should have thought of other ways to do that. His friends should also not agree with that.

Too bad he was only hit in the arm. Otherwise, Cardella would have gotten an entry to the Darwin Awards!
