Okay you guys are so wrong and out of proportion...first off...his name is Joseph...and he was never going to blow up stupid MHS...he didnt give out a specific school and I bet you there are so many people out there who'd like to blow up that school and have prolly said it...why arnet you getting them?...he did not have any explosives at his house..I would know I live there and all he had and used to make bombs were..the works, aluminum foil, and a pop bottle...everyone has that in their home...I wanna see them get arrested...and his friend Steven he better get in trouble for all this because he was right along with him...STEVEN is what got my brother into all that and as far as the tattoos go...who cares...I dont even know why you brought that up...and he is not gothic you have no right to judge him when you dont obviously know what gothic is

I just think you should get your facts straight before you go saying things about people, there are two sides of a story. Im not saying I know people who want to blow up the school (that was a bad choice of words), I was just saying it as a figure of speech (as in kids not liking school)

Ok, first of all, to dispel any thought of this, I am not automatically taking anyones side here. I am a citizen, and a concerned citizen here. I cannot condone any form of violence on a public school, or any school for that matter, although I'm not conceeding his guilt. I can however, commend the Muscatine Police Department for acting quickly and decisively to prevent what they saw as a potential threat to many lives, weather they got the right person or not. Second, since your last post, there has been mountains of evidence stacking up against him, electronic evidence that cannot be easily forged without tracing it back to the forger. However, I am not a Jury, and I am not a Judge, nor am I an attorney. I went through something simmilar before I moved here to California, my best friend killed himself, and his lyfestyle was blamed. I do not subscribe to this theory, and to this day I will argue with you until I am blue in the face. Blaming someones lifestyle, music choice, social netowrk is nothing but a copout for the ones who can't point the finger at themselves. but I do feel that with the amount of evidence stacking up against him, Things do not bode well. Especially logged records from Yahoo indicating web site searches, propaganda websites, things that someone who is as innocent as you proclaim, has no business searching for. Top it off, logged messanger conversations from his whistleblower. Once, again, I am not an attorney, judge nor Jury, and I do not judge anyone I do not know, nor do I wish to. I just see both sides. I do blame society as a whole for allowing children to be raised in such a manner that they feel they cannot come to their parents and ask for help to work out issues.

Best of luck to you, and feel free to respond and start a conversation, but I will not be drawn into a verbal argument, name calling, etc.. debate, as this was not my intention
