As for Josh Shanks, he can rot in hell for all I care. He was a POS when I knew him and from what I've heard, old habits die hard. So yeah, hopefully he'll just do us all a favor and OD somewhere. That's how he can repay his debt to society. lol His mama sleeps his way out of trouble and Daddy pays his way out of everything else. Josh is a professional loser.

beelzebubb, what's your deal? You bitch about vets not getting jobs in Harlan, and now you're on the Shanks thread bitching about vets! lol Do you want people to bow to you in the street or what? Sorry, but Harlan is probalby gonna be nicer to you than anywhere else in the US. Get over yourself! Do you have experience for these jobs your trying for, or are you just walking into places saying, "I'm a VET!!! Gimme a job, and wipe my ass for me while I'm at it. " Sheesh!!

Omg well thats kinda harsh..Well maybe he just has some luck..its not his fault what kind of family he was brought into..maybe someday he will get what he needs but until then he is gonna continue doing what he loves to do while he still has SOME freedom..but wanting someone to die is a lil too much for anyone..

Harsh? Nah, not really. I mean, just look at his latest mug shot. He's grinning and having a good 'ol time. It's obvious that he has learned nothing, and drug court will do nothing to change that. There comes a time when people go from being folks who have made mistakes that they are sorry for and trying to reform to where they're just burdens on society, plain and simple. Unfortunately, Josh is in the latter category.

I think its funny that he is smiling..just shows he dont care and that he is having fun with life..he knows what he does wrong but he dont care..thats just how he lives his life..so i think ppl should just get over it..i hope he does get through drug court cause id like to see him again in Harlan sometime..that would be cool!

No I don't want people to bow to me in the street's, they should bow to every vet who has ever served his country, while pos like Shanks and others live off the pain of others and people like you kiss there ass, have you ever served your county, thats why they need a draft, for people like you and yes I am more than qualified for jobs I have applied for, I don't know you antiyou, and have nothing bad to say about you, but just take one miniute out of your busy day and think about the young men and women that have went through pure hell in Iraq and Afghanistan, where were you at....Case Closed.

I mean i agree with the whole serving ur country part cause my boyfriend is a proud member of the Army National Guard and my best friends brother is one too who has served in Iraq and im very proud of all who serve but that doesnt mean that they NEED a better job than everyone else..i mean they deserve to have a job but sometimes it just doesnt work out.My best friends brother is a cop so i believe thats where all the soldiers go to when they have served is to be a cop..firefighter..and whatever else in that category..so just give it time..ur time will come.

A cop, firefighter? Naw baby, every soldier, sailor, marine or airman don't want to be a cop. All I was saying is that Harlan county will baby and wipe a junkies ass and give them every chance under the sun to live a productive life. Men and women who take their time to serve, deserve better. Do you think if a vet came home and did some of the things Mr. Shanks has done would get a chance, no he or she wouldn't. The thing that sets me and Mr. Shanks apart is he is a wannabe shootem up tough guy dealing poision. Some people will never understand what its like to take a life and watch a friend get his head blowed off infront of you, that dosn't make me any tougher or badder than anybody else and it brings back really bad memories, I went to college got a Bachelors degree, anywhere else in the country that counts for something but not here it your last name and who's ass mommy and daddy's kissin. Take the Vietnam vets for instance they have gotten the worst deal in America, just ask one. At least Ron Johnson served his country, and probably would throw some of these sorry asses in the pen not the Harlan County Country Club.

Josh will be josh until the day he dies. Outwardly, he can be friendly and kind, but would steal your clothes off of you if he could. He has alot of problems to clean up and take care of, and has many enemies in the county, and I aint one of them. I know his family and like them, but he has a long way to go to get himself straightened up. I thought Alred told him to not come back to Harlan. Whats up with that?

JOSH does not have a huge heart. He is a selfish POS. I have saw him treat people, good people terribly. I have no sympathy for him. And as for you saying he isnt responsible for his actions. uh yeah he is. He is a grown as.s 30 year old man.

I know Josh very well. He is a fine Christian young man who truly loves his family,especially his mother and his children. I know his mother as well,and she is one of the finest people I know. Instead of trashing Josh, let's say a prayer for him and his family, in the hope he will get his life on the right track.

josh is crap. he stole checks off his grandmother and tried to cash them. i know cause he tried to get me to cash them. he couldn't even make out a check right. so i called his mother. she called the police and then came down to get him. but this has been years ago. i think he needs to stand half nude in the middle of wal-mart parking lot holding a sign saying he is a thief and let everyone that passes by laugh at him and give him a good butt bustin after that he may clean up who knows.

You are right. And he grins in all of his mugshots, all 20+ arrests.

AntiYou-
I hope you appreciate satire when you see it. In truth, I do think his(Josh's) mother is a good person, and I am concerned for his children. Apparently, the children's mother is not exactly a positive role model. I do think we should keep the children in our prayers.

Beelzebub-
For what it's worth, I appreciate your concern for the veterans. I am an ex-Marine (actually, there is no such thing-" Once a Marine,always a Marine")- and a VietNam vet. Semper Fi.
