"Pop Goes The Cholo", Way to Die #895, is the third death to be featured in "Better Them Than Us", which aired on March 16, 2011.


Gangbanging in Albuquerque is no joke, because two street gang members (Juan & Eduardo) take a third member (Enrique) to a back alley ex-doctor (Mr. Stitches), who lost his license after having sex with his anaesthisized patients previosly, to treat a bullet wound to Enrique's chest. Eduardo ends up pistol whipping Mr. Stitches into unconsciousness after losing patience with him. With Mr. Stitches out cold, Juan & Eduardo decide to do the operation themselves, but fail after inserting the tracheal tube down Enrique's esophagus, rather than the trachea, and end up hemorrhaging Enrique's stomach by filling it with air and causing it to explode. After Enrique died instantly, Juan and Eduardo escape the back alley immediately.

"Enrique thought sneaking into this country and leading a life of crime was a good idea. Hey, Enrique, this is why they call it gang...banged."
