I think until you know the whole story, you should keep your crude comments to your self. The woman making these accusations has a history of mental problems, and is not to be taken for her word!
This man has a family who are going through alot emotionally. And to " It Doesnt Matter" If it doesnt matter...shut your mouth !!

I'm very offended by these rude and heartless comments. How would you feel if this was one of your family members? The only reason people write about these stories is to get ratings for thier news papers.

So my comment was judged as clueless..

Interesting as I was there during it!! Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Even if it is unjustified. Do some research on this guy, find one person who would say anything bad about him.(with the exception of the woman bringing the charges) This is still America and you are innocent until proven otherwise!

Sheri..Everyone who knows Joe, knows the truth.(she) is such a liar, she hasn't even been able to stick to the same story. She has told the police about 5-6 different stories. And who knows how many more she will concoct before it is all over! Hopefully justice will prevail! We will survive this!

Ok locals who know and love this guy so much, was he or was he not in her place ? Was he or was he not armed ? Did he or did he not cut himself ?
Since we cannot trust the republican owned newspapers we must trust the word of people. Tell the truth.

This "moron" happened to love this woman. If you ave nothing nice to say...try saying nothing at all. Its better to be an idiot in silence then to open your mouth and prove it! This man has children who do not need to read your cruel words about their father. Be your less than compassionate self on your own time, in your own home, where you cannot hurt his already hurting family.

Well I guess maybe you (stickleg) should tell us what happened, since you are apparently all knowing! And you are so closely connected with the situation.
From here on out I will try and contact you with any moral questions that should arise in my life!
I think you are one of these people who just randomly comment on stories so you can see your name in print!
KUDOS to you! You are like what (50?) more comments away from actually being famous?

To all the insensitive people who have decided to share their negative comments in this...did you ever stop to think that you are hurting his family and friends. Not to mention that you have no idea what you are talking about. Are you really that stupid to believe everything you read? Did you ever stop to think that there are two sides to every story?

I am a friend of the family and very upset by the rude and heartless comments by strangers.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

The first four sentences of this article is a complete and total lie. Joseph did NOT try to rape, suffocate, or kill the woman... she was stabbing at him and he was trying to keep her away, he left and the crazy woman who he supposedly attempted to murder called the police and claimed all of those terrible lies.
less bashing please
