White Teen Girl Shot in Head Released from Hospital: “I’m tougher than a bullet.”



A teen girl, Deserae Turner, survived a head shot from a .22 caliber pistol. She was the victim of a premeditated murder plot hatched by two 16 year old boys she knew who stole her stuff.

The criminal justice system is not releasing information about Deserae’s assailants, although one of them is described as a blonde boy, age 16.


SALT LAKE CITY — Smiling and holding her mother’s hand, 14-year-old Deserae Turner spoke Thursday of gratitude, faith and joy as she was released from Primary Children’s Hospital two months after police say she was shot in the head and left to die.

“I am so thankful to be here today, to be alive,” she told members of the media in her first appearance since the shooting. “I told my dad that I am tougher than a bullet. It is still with me today.”

Deserae has been hospitalized since she was found in a dry canal in extremely critical condition shortly after midnight on Feb 17. Police say she was shot from behind by two 16-year-old boys intent on killing her, leaving her in a medically induced coma and with the remains of the bullet forever lodged in her skull.

But as she read a statement and took questions, Deserae spoke only of her appreciation for the hometown that has supported her, the doctors who have cared for her and the countless strangers who have prayed for her.

“People all over the world have been praying for me. Some of them I know and some I have never met, and they have never met me, but they cared for me, and they care for you,” Deserae said. “I would like others to know that people are kind and they do care about us and are concerned about us, even when we may think no one is there.”

She even picked a special shirt to wear as she returned to her home in the small town of Amalga, in Cache County. On the front of the white T-shirt, the word “Happy” was written in flowing cursive. The back read, “There are so many beautiful reasons to be happy.”

“It says happy on it, and I’m happy to go home,” Deserae said.

Deserae said she was most excited to return home and see her animals, especially her horses.

Deserae also thanked those who “helped take care for my family, especially my mom and dad, while I have been in the hospital.”

Deserae’s parents, Matt and April Turner, celebrated their daughter’s release and praised her strength Thursday.

“What a great day. Because of the love and care of so many, we are taking our beautiful, courageous daughter home today,” Matt Turner said. “Nine weeks ago we did not know if this was possible.”

The family made no reference to the criminal case that is ongoing following the shooting, focusing instead on the joy of having Deserae released from the hospital, and asking that the girl not be questioned about the attack.

Prosecutors say two 16-year-old boys put together a premeditated murder plot targeting Deserae after one of the teens grew tired of her frequent Snapchat messages.

Together they lured Deserae to join them after school on Feb. 16 under the guise of buying a knife, then shot her once in the back of the head at close range, stole her belongings and left her in a dry section of the dirty canal in Smithfield, according to charging documents.

Deserae was found hours later by friends who were searching for her. She spent some time in a medically induced coma, and after awaking, she spoke to police about what little she remembers from that day, including naming the two boys she said she met at the canal.

The two teenage boys are both charged as juveniles with attempted aggravated murder, a first-degree felony; aggravated robbery, a first-degree felony; and four counts of obstruction of justice, a second-degree felony.

KSL has chosen not to identify the two teens at this time.

In separate preliminary hearings last month, 1st District Juvenile Judge Angela Fonnesbeck ordered both teens to stand trial on the charges. The boys now face individual hearings in May, when defense attorneys will argue to retain their cases in the juvenile system while prosecutors push for them to face the charges as adults.

The family declined to answer questions about Deserae’s specific injuries and the recovery that awaits her.

“I have been working really hard and still have a lot of work to do,” Deserae said simply.

Matt Turner said his daughter has “battled for her life” and the ability to do daily tasks — and always will — but the family maintains hope for continued improvement.

Deserae was brought into the press conference in a wheelchair. Helped by her parents, she stood up and took careful steps to a table and chairs that had been set up for them. Her long, curly hair has been cut short, revealing thin surgical scars across her head.

If her hair grows back curly, Deserae said she would like to have it long again. If it is straight, she will keep the short style.

Matt Turner also echoed Deserae’s amazement at the prayers and faith offered to his family.

“We have seen and felt the very best of humanity touch our family’s life over the past several weeks. We know our Heavenly Father has heard your prayers and those heard around the world,” he said.

Deserae echoed her father’s feelings that she has been blessed through her recovery.

“I have felt that my Heavenly Father is with me and has helped me get this far, and I’m so grateful for that,” she said.

That Mexican Shot Dead by Utah Police Had Long Criminal History But Was Good Boy Turning His Life Around


The video posted here yesterday of Roy, Utah police killing a Mexican drew some lively commentary, not all of it in agreement.

Who was that armed Mexican who disobeyed police orders, ran, and pulled a gun.

Well, he beez a good boy dat wuz turnin’ him life around.

Watch the video again to remind yourself of what happened at the Utah Texaco station in February.


ROY — A man shot and killed after a scuffle with police in Roy moved to Utah years ago to turn his life around, according to a friend.

Nicolas Sanchez, 38, of Layton, was fatally shot by police after he allegedly raised a gun toward officers Tuesday, Feb. 21, according to a statement from the Roy Police Department.

Two Roy police officers responded to a report of trespassing Tuesday night at a Texaco gas station at 4395 S. 1900 West. When officers arrived on scene, Sanchez engaged in a fight with officers, Roy Deputy Chief Aaron Perry said Wednesday morning.

Officers shot Sanchez after he pulled out a handgun and pointed it at police, Perry said. He was transported to a local hospital and later pronounced dead.

Sanchez’s “Mormon mom” makes excuses for his inability to obey the law in Utah, just as he had been unable to obey the law in California. This good boy had only been off probation from a five year prison sentence for a month.

How Crazy is Glenn Beck? This Crazy (Video)



Is Glenn Beck, allegedly a conservative, crazy or crazy like a fox?

Actually, given that his media empire (financed by Jewish liberals to discredit conservatives, I believe) is on shaky ground, he’s crazy.

He lost me for sure when he went to the Mexican border to welcome our illegal amigos with gifts. He’s a Mormon, which I guess makes him an open borders kind of guy. I liked Mormons until they decided to become politically correct a**hats.

Here Beck covers his face in crushed Cheetos to mock Donald Trump. The only one Beck is mocking is himself.

Bizarre: Teen Mormon Missionary Has Survived Boston, Paris, and Brussels Terrorist Attacks

His name is Mason, as in Free Mason. What are the odds against his story? Could Mason Wells be a traveling “crisis actor?”

If you want to know where the next terrorist attack is going to be, just follow this guy.


An American injured in the Brussels terror attacks has already been impacted previous terror attacks in Boston and Paris, his family said.

Mason Wells, 19, was injured in the bombing at the Brussels airport along with two other American Mormon missionaries who had gone to help check in other missionaries who were traveling to the U.S.

Wells suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon, shrapnel injures, as well as second- and third-degree burns on his face and hands after the bombing, his father Chad Wells told ABC News.

The teen missionary had previously been impacted by other terror attacks in Paris and Boston.

“This is his third terrorist attack,” Chad Wells said, noting he was with his son just a block from the Boston Marathon bombing.

“This is the third time that sadly in our society that we have a connection to a bomb blast,” Wells told ABC News. “We live in a dangerous world and not everyone is kind and loving.”

Wells said that during the Boston Marathon bombing, he was with his son a block away from the finish line, where the bombing took place, waiting for Mason Wells’ mother, who ran the marathon.

“It had shaken their bodies and he had taken Mason to our hotel and said to stay there,” Kymberly Wells told ABC News of her son and husband being near the Boston bombing. “Mason was very calm and composed.”

The family said Wells was in France during the Paris attacks last year that lead to a wide mobilization to find the terrorists and disrupt future attacks.

“Mason has always assured us that he is safe and careful,” Kymberly Wells said. “I told him first and foremost always be aware of your surroundings, please be very careful when you’re traveling be very observant to people around you.”

Chad Wells said they were able to speak to their son, who was in the hospital, and they’re optimistic he will make a full recovery. They said the teenager was basically at “ground zero” of the blast.

Practical advice: Stay away from Mason unless you have an interest in being in the middle of a terrorist attack.
