The story and his background makes no sense. I personally know him he isn't violent in fact quite the opposite however I wasn't saying he was innocent nor did I say he didnt deserve some sort or retaliation. Even neighbors claim it doesn't add up. You think the highland pd actually investigated more then taking the lady's statement? Watch the interview they don't even have the same story. Pieces are missing
I am not sticking up for the dude.at all but these ladies have different stories for every interview they have given. If the man broke in and assaulted the women then he got what he had coming. Just saying that I don't think these ladies are telling the truth 100%. Unfortunately you only have three witnesses here and only the two sisters have given their stories

Oi vey. He's former Marine Corp Civil Engineering. Appears to be divorced with 2 kids and people here hope that he dies, if I am reading this all correctly. I tend to come off as a troll but even this is past me. He made a mistake and paid a price for it.
As far as the reports of a warning shot... no. He was facing away from the gun and got shot twice. Once in the spine around the 6th vertebrae and second in the flesh on the side from the recoil. Paralyzed is unknown and a rumor. No where is this confirmed but it is likely due to shot location.
No, Josh does NOT have 2 kids. Yes he was shot twice and where you got your "specifics" is something of question. Unless you are a direct family member or close friend as I am, I would choose your words wisely as even YOU do not know the facts. As of now, yes he is paralyzed from the waist down and no it is not a rumor. Whether or not that will change, is up to the doctor's who have yet to determine temporary or permanent.

Also, the ONLY story any of you have to go on is what those women said and even their stories on EACH news station, post, etc. don't add up, let alone are they consistent! I know Josh VERY WELL and he may be a lot of things, but this is NOT him. Anyway, who are any of you to judge? Leave it up to the courtroom. I'm sure it would be different if it was one of your loved ones...

The one woman attacked was quite obese so she couldn't really defend herself. In one of the interviews they happened to show an opened drawer in the table next to her and there were lots of medicine bottles. I would veture to say she has multiple medicanl problems. I don't blame the sister for shooting. If it had been myself I would have shot until he dropped, He was drunk but had no business coming into their house and demanding money. Plus he was a pretty big guy so those women had no chance.

Anyone who is saying it was an "accident" is making an excuse up. One report I read said neighbors heard someone jiggling their doorknobs before they heard the shots. He entered their apartment while one sister was outside smoking, so basically the first open door he found, he entered. Then he attacked a woman. How is that ok, drunk, sober, high or whatever? Attacking anyone is wrong, attacking an old woman is worse. If he's paralyzed that's a direct result from breaking in and attacking someone who's sister owned a gun. It sucks but hey, he'll have learned his lesson. Let's hope he recovers and learns his lesson and becomes an inspirational story, but if not, at least these women are safe, and that's the important thing.

It's Sarah and you have shown the forum you have no intelligence. It is politically incorrect to say "retarded".

Ok, so I know, the ladies lured him into their home with their feminine ways just to shoot him and say he broke in. Is that about right?
