Not really the way I wanted to get publicity for this PlutoCrazy video http://youtu.be/-dHF7DCKgnU I wondered why over the last few days views had shot up, all local traffic in Lethbridge. Seems John Reynolds, the fellow wearing the hat, made himself infamous of late. I didn't connect the name to the news reports cuz the guy just seems too grounded to have been the same person. I will assume him innocent until proven guilty, but it doesn't look good.

ya well if you knew the guy a few years ago he was a total moron, always doing stupid stuff narrowly escaping the long arm of the law. It's about time his shenanigans have caught up to him. Pfft grounded my ass he has NEVER been grounded.

How can you say that about a Man with two children that's recently married and has busted his Add in Construction for how long. You should be Ashamed calling him down like this. He raised his brother young and was never in trouble, I hope you have a great sleep tonight knowing nothing about the man your pledging against.

I know John a little bit and he always seemed like a nice guy...but what bothers me is he obviously didn't think how his actions would affect his wife and two children. So now if he goes to jail his wife will be taking care of his two children all by herself and his children will lose out as well. Once you become a husband and a father you can't only think of yourself...and clearly he was.

Garbage garbage and more garbage. John Reynolds is an upstanding citizen who raised his baby brother starting at a very young age, he got good grades in school, and has always been an ambitious man with a thirst for bigger and better things. He has had his share of trouble just like everyone else, if not less than most people, but since he became a father and a husband, his primary focus has always been on his family, and creating a beautiful, happy life with them. This man has come into Lethbridge, attempted to build something out of nothing by creating his construction company AND a nightclub all at such a young age, that we should all strive to be as ambitious as he is. The accusations against him are obviously being made by someone who holds a grudge against him and I refuse to believe that ANYTHING that is being said is true. I hope that the Reynolds' family chooses to sue the Lethbridge media for slander and defamation of character when this is all said and done. Further more, the threats that are being made against him and his family are ignorant attempts to scare them and need to stop immediately. This is a good man, with a beautiful family and they deserve to be left in peace while John's name is being cleared.

So what you're saying is I should judge someone by their past, and not give any credence to the present? That doesn't seem fair, unless maybe we're talking about Gandhi.

oh my, I personaly knew John for quit a few years, and no he has never been grounded. He never finished High school, moved out of his house at a young age to move into a trailor court for his then trashy girlfriend. He has always been full of shit and blows smoke out of his ass all the time. He is selling drugs out of his buisness( red fort diesel) and it dose not take a rocket scientest to figure that out. Everyone who truly knows john knows hes quilty, and i hope he goes to jail. What he did was selffish and deserves to be punished for once! When he was a teenager he was always getting into altercations with weapons and thats why the tactical team took him down. Come on people open your eyes!:)

I dont know the guy at all but everyone one here sounds like snitches except for the people defending him none of you know what happened cuz I'm assuming you weren't there so shut the f*ck up! You have no say in the case an all you are doing is kicking a man when he's down people make mistakes and none of you are perfect shut the f*ck up and go find a celebrity to gossip about! Sound like a bunch of Perez Hiltons!

Regardless of wither he did it or not everyone is innocent till proven guilty! It isn`t fair to condemn a person because the police and media say or believe that, that person committed this crime. People have been wrongly accused before and it has completely ruined their lives. Maybe the police we led to him because of his crimes in the past. Cops have done it before. Ever seen the movie Conviction. Just because his past isn`t 100% doesn`t mean he committed this particular crime. Things just don`t fit the bill if this man had everything going for him why commit this crime. I refuse to place judgment on this man till they can prove to me he really did it and everyone else should do the same.

A good quote that I've come to know well is "Think for yourself, question authority!" We can`t always consider what is said to be true. So then what I`m about to say you can only consider to be true or false as well. But sometimes it is better to come up with our scenarios. Consider if you will John is innocent. Then who committed the crime? Ask yourself did someone one have it out for this man. If John did have a rough history with the police a maybe a cop had it out for John. Maybe John cleaned up and now that cop is jealous got sick of waiting for him to mess up again and then framed him. Maybe not even a cop maybe just another jealous person. Maybe the man who was kidnapped was threatened told to lead the cops to John, We don't know this for sure. NOW I AM NOT SAYING THIS IS FACT JUST FOOD FOR THOUGHT, DO NOT BLOW THIS OUT OF PROPORTION. BUT WE HAVE TO REMEMBER THINGS ARN'T ALWAYS WHAT THEY SEEM. I don't know John personally and honestly I think doesn't matter because I don't have character to influence my judgment as that of a real judge in a courtroom. I just don't want to hear about another man going to jail for something he didn't do years from now after having spent time in jail away from his wife and kids.
